To Love and To Loathe - Book Review

To Love and To Loathe (The Regency Vows #2) by Martha Waters
Published: April 6, 2021
Pages: 349 pages
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ☆☆☆☆
Strengths: Charming, witty characters
Weaknesses: Not a lot of substance

Am I the only one who feels like this could be the community next to the Bridgerton's? LOL Which probably just shows how un-educated I am about the time period and society.

The women in The Regency Vows series so far are so independent and fun. In the one, the widowed Lady Diana Templeton decides it may be time for her to take a lover, around the same time one of her brother's friends who she has known for years decides he needs an honest opinion regarding his...ahem...bedroom performance. Perfect fit, right? Of course, they usually thrive on insulting and riling each other, but they each think they can handle their distaste for one another for a month or so, while they both accomplish their behind-closed-doors goals.

The plot line becomes pretty obvious early on. That doesn't make their banter and chemistry any less fun. I'd give this book 4 out of 5 stars and look forward to more in the series. 

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for my free electronic copy of this book. Receiving the book for free did not influence my review.
