Tempting Mr. Weatherstone by Vivienne Lorret Review @avonbooks @AvonImpulse @VivLorret

Tempting Mr. Weatherstone (Wallflower Weddings, #0.5)
Release date: November 25, 2014
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: Wallflower Weddings #0.5

USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret revisits her Wallflower Wedding series with a delightful tale of friends-to-lovers, just in time for Christmas.

Penelope Rutledge longs for passion, but only with the man of her dreams: the brilliant, dashing Ethan Weatherstone. If only her longtime neighbor would open his eyes and realize how much she loves him. If only they weren’t best friends with so much at stake. Penelope knows her future—and their friendship—is in her hands, but is she willing to take the biggest risk of all on the man she loves?

If it were up to Ethan, life and love would be as predictable as the figures in his ledgers—certainly nothing like the adventures Penelope longs for. Yet his childhood friend has grown into a beautiful, feisty woman blissfully unaware of the danger she causes when near. Ethan knows he must save Penelope and her reputation … but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips?

My Rating: 5 Roses

A delightfully sweet, absolutely adorable romance, Tempting Mr. Weatherstone was a wonderful historical romance novella. It was simply lovely and I really liked it.

Penelope and Ethan were both likable. They were both creatures of habit and that predictability made them both happy. For Penelope, though, the stasis that her relationship with Ethan had fallen into made her restless and encouraged her to be more assertive in what she wanted. Ethan was very sweet. He obviously cared about Penelope more than anything, but was terrified that, in trying to change their relationship, he would lose her. I thought both characters were great.

The romance was a delight. Penelope and Ethan clearly loved each other. It was just a matter of finding the courage to take the first step. I thought they were perfect together.

The plot moved quickly and kept me engaged all the way through. For such a little novella, there was a surprising depth to the characters and the emotion. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

Tempting Mr. Weatherstone was a fantastic historical romance novella that I truly loved. Romance lovers, if you want a quick and lovely read, this you'll definitely want to pick this book up.
