I felt like I was walking the streets of New York with the characters, and it was brilliant to see how Lucas-- our Professor Higgins-- learns more from his students as the story moves along. There is also an underlying theme straight out of the movie about confidence being more about WHO we are than how we LOOK that I adored.
Mrs. Higgins: How ever did you learn good manners with my son around?
Eliza Doolittle: It was very difficult. I should never have known how ladies and gentlemen really behaved, if it hadn't been for Colonel Pickering. He always showed what he thought and felt about me as if I were something better than a common flower girl. You see, Mrs. Higgins, apart from the things one can pick up, the difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.
Luke’s stock-in-trade is to peel off that outside layer and fortify the innards, molding his graduates into confidence personified. Uncringeable self-worth. Unshakable self-awareness. Comfortable in the eye of a crowd.
But as Luke soon learns, Batman’s cape and mask aren’t just there for a disguise. Sometimes, they’re a hiding place, too.
‘Con Man’ is an engaging, oftentimes funny-sometimes serious, read told from Luke’s mostly-not-insecure snarky point-of-view. Definitely recommended if you like to crawl inside a guy’s brain and poke around.
I almost stopped reading at about 25-30% because Luke seemed so superficial despite his proclamations to the contrary. I like the direction the book took as it progressed. However the overall story wasn't super cohesive between the romance and Lucas dealing with his past. It seemed disjointed and far from organic. Also, not that I need tons of smut in my stories, but the 18+ warning at the beginning seemed a little over the top. Sure, it's not a book for teenagers but it wasn't nearly as steamy as the warning implied.
Overall, I enjoyed getting to know Luke, and it was an interesting premise. However, the execution was shaky at best.
