Something Wicked Reviews
Mary’s very best friend has run off with a man and left her to socialize amongst the rest of their tedious 18th century society alone. No one can replace her, and she is left bored and unsure how to proceed without Angela by her side. Mary has a male best friend but Greg isn’t the same as her female bestie. Life is not as rich or vibrant all of a sudden and it’s left her…well bored.So she says, “I’m going to act like a man!” and she sheds the typical woman role to absorb her true self which is strong, stubborn, smart, much much more but strong is the big one. She’s a rock in her decisions. So, she tells Greg she wants to “act like a man” and become a courtesan. Mary despises the word “lady” because she feels that you lose your identity; that it is the “absence of being a person.”The author paints quite the relationship between Mary and Greg, as they are not officially an item. She fills the pages with true-to-life dialogue. Her writing style is very graceful and flowing. She depicts the love between the pair so eloquently. The entire story read so easily that when it was over I sat there for a few seconds, highly disappointed that there was no more left to read.So what happens to Mary? Well, Greg loves her so dearly, but what is this I am reading about another man? Chapter 2 starts you off with a bang and you learn all about how Mary became…well…Mary.What a beautiful love story, so well -written and full of heart-quickening romance. The way the pair avoid a relationship really gets your blood going in frustration and excitement because maybe…just maybe…(although the authors ability to pull you in has a lot to do with that!)The romance of the century. The author has a strong grasp on the framework of social structures and human interactions. She really makes you a part of this romance and that is a rare rare rare gift. Sweet, sassy, smart, curl-your-toes love story. What a treat!
Interesting book. It was a bit slow to start, but quickly picked up and drew me into the relationship between Mary and Greg. Mary is definitely not your typical regency heroine, and like most regencies I've read, sometimes the language is more modern than regency, however, I found it delightful. For me, regencies are all about the dialogue and banter and the author does this well, especially the further into the book you get. It's a fun book, and I think the cover sort of lets it down because when I see it I don't immediately think fun regency romp, but something quite dark. I loved Greg. Great hero, great friend, the kind of guy you'd want to meet in person. In the end, the top criteria for me is likeable characters and I very much liked Greg and Mary and felt they popped off the page and into my life.
I won a copy of this through first reads.This is not usually the type of romance I would read however I really enjoyed this book.The characters (Lady Mary, and Viscount Lincoln) are quite entertaining and you like them from the very start. You find yourself rooting for them.There are enough twist and turns to keep you turning the pages and the ending is quite hilarious.This would be a great summer read on the beach or at the cottage.I will most certainly keep an eye on Olivia Fuller for her new books.Great book!!!
I received an advanced copy of Something Wicked and was quite excited to read it! I throughly enjoyed The Wicked Game, so I had been patiently waiting to see what happens to Angela's dear cousin Mary. I was not let down! Being a fast reader, I devoured the second installation which only left me wanting more!
I won this book through a goodreads giveaway. This is not your typical romance novel. The author did an amazing job with the characters. They were so descriptive and captivating. I look forward to reading Olivia Fuller's next book.
really enjoyed this book
