The prose was a little purple, and the failures to communicate were annoying, and both leads, Georgiana and Tristan, were just so vapid but it was generally fun, I liked Tristan's family relationship, and the whole was diverting enough. ( )

Started off so well, witty fun dialogue and interaction between the two characters. But good golly the middle and ending of the book was like wading through molasses in winter.
 
The heroine's trust issues with the hero appear and then reappear and reappear and reappear. Look lady, maybe instead of flipping the freak out immediately when a stranger relays some info you're upset to hear, perhaps instead, take a breathe and ask your dude "wtf, do you know what this is about?"
 
I can handle misunderstandings but not TSTL multiple ones. The hero/heroine had good chemistry, just not a supporting story. This should have been a novella. I was so meh towards the middle and end I sped-read. ( )

I thought this was a great book. Tristan and Georgiana had wonderful chemistry. Had some laughs and kept longing to read it. Just the way a book should be! ( )

A story and characters so improbable and exaggerated that reader disbelief is not so much suspended as tazered into submission, resulting in a light, fluffy and highly enjoyable read.

The story opens with three obscenely rich and highly desirable unwed BFFs bemoaning, over tea and cakes, the despicable behaviour of the delinquent and degenerate rakes that are constantly chasing their skirts and inheritances. They decide, naturally, that something must be done about this, and begin by penning their personal lists of requirements for ideal suitors. The next step is, naturally, to reform some of these loathsome rakes and teach them the lessons contained in the lists.

First up to the firing line is Georgina, who chooses as her target an outstandingly odious and arrogant slob called Tristan, with whom she had a particularly humiliating experience several years before. Georgina invites herself into his house, makes friends with his aunts, relatives, and friends—all with the intention of making him fall in love with her and then giving him a taste of his own medicine by spurning him.

Naturally, things go wrong. In a totally predictable narrative development, Georgina and Tristan begin to take an interest in each other and end up... well, you can guess.

Ms Enoch clearly had fun penning this frothy and frivolous story (see Chapter 13) and the enthusiasm enlivens what could so easily have been just another reforming-the-rake clunker. ( )

A really sweet and slightly humorous romance without anything extraordinary but very well written.It's the story of Tristan and Georgianna who have a past; a past only the two of them know about and enmity is all that remains after 4-5 years. But now Georgianna decides to teach him a lesson about how a gentleman should really behave; break his heart in the process and leave him as he did with her years ago.Of course trying to win his love means she has to be friendlier with him and charm him. Tristan is not stupid to not realize that Georgianna is up to something, unfortunately he cannot figure exactly what. He seizes this opportunity to ask her forgiveness for what he did all those years ago -got a kiss from her (and not only that) just to win a bet- and hopes she might be giving him another chance which he's determined not to screw up. He also has to convince Georgianna that he's changed and he's not after her money alone.In the middle of this fray, comes a wealthy heiress that Tristan had courted before Georgianna attracted his attention once more. Amanda wants Tristan's title and he needs her money to say his family from ruin; she's not going to let Georgianna steal her prospective husband, when it becomes clear that Georgianna has more than lesson in her mind where Tristan is concerned. This leads to a few fast paced chapters near the end and some humorous situations. Nice, sweet romance which I really enjoyed reading and would recommend to anyone wanting a light, easy read. However, I liked the other two of the trilogy better than this one. ( )
