I've been looking forward to seeing how the stuffy and somewhat rigid Thomas deals with the independent and free-spirited Arabella, and there were plenty of sparks both in and out of the bedroom. I particularly enjoyed seeing Thomas loosen up a bit, and the ribbing he took from his brothers and friends was pretty hilarious. Arabella's interactions with her friends are pretty funny as well, as she finally gets the experiences to go with the tales her friends have been telling her, and yes she actually did like some of things in the bedroom that she had sworn she never would.
I have to admit this wasn't my favorite couple of the series; Arabella was just too much of a brat for my taste (maybe I'm more like stuffy Thomas than I thought, lol). While her antics were usually amusing and I did feel for her situation, I just found her too self-centered and it made me dislike her a little, especially to start off with. She just never quite grew up enough, imo. Thomas was better; though too stuffy and judgmental to start, he did show not only that he had a lot more depth than we originally saw, but also character growth as he came to care less about what society thought and by developing the ability to be spontaneous and even slightly scandalous on occasion.
This was still an engaging and enjoyable read, seriously hot and seriously funny and with plenty of the great characters interactions that I enjoyed in the previous books. I'm greatly looking forward to the spinoffs and following the stories of some of the intriguing secondary characters that still haven't gotten their HEA. 4.5 stars
As usual, the characters are well drawn and individual. We get a few glimpses of previous relationships, but the focus is most definitely on Arabella and Thomas. There are some minor editorial issues, but nothing so bad it pulled me out of the story.
I have to admit that while I do enjoy Golden Angel's Victorian series, in the past recent books I felt there was a bit too much Arabella and Cynthia (from her previous Domestic Discipline series). While both characters are fun and enjoyable, they do tend to "take over" the stories of other couples. But this time it's all about Arabella and thankfully, Cynthia does not overshadow the plot.
Arabella was first introduced in the first book of this series and she's been a rather fun if not brattish character. She had previously hinted that she had a crush on one of the gentlemen in the series and it's been pretty obvious that it was Thomas Hood. It's a classic case of opposites attract and while Thomas and Arabella have their false starts, fights and of course lots of fun spanking activities; it's clear that these two are made for each other. Although, Arabella saw it much more clearly than Thomas.
And if anyone is sad that this is the final book of the Bridal Discipline series, Golden Angel does plant the seeds of another spin off and I am hooked! I am curious about Mary and that naughty marquis!
*I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.*
Thomas has a list with requirement and Arabelle does not fit that list.
I loved seeing both of them together. I had a few ‘no, you didn’t just do that’ moments, but Thomas had his own way of dealing with things. Arabelle made laugh a lot. Both weren’t perfect, they each had their mistakes, but that makes the characters more real.
And it wonderful to see how both of them flourished when they were together.
