Review: Almost a Scandal by Elizabeth Essex

Hi everyone!! How are you doing? I'm doing okay, except I'm in a dreaded reading slump T_T I haven't read anything so far this week and it just sucks!! I guess it's the combination of the New Bride with White Hair and curling that got me revved up. I've been so excited for the TV series that it took up all my energy and then, when I finally calmed down, curling took my time. Speaking of curling, I'll have a post with pictures up this week-end :) In the meantime though, I don't know what to read, nothing appeals to me. I'm hoping next week with the new releases, I'll get back into a rhythm. Sigh.

Luckily, I'm behind in my reviews LOL. So I can at least still write them! Hopefully, I'll start reading more before I catch up, because reading slump and blogging blues, that'd be hell! Anyway, today is a buddy review over at Breezing Through. Ames and I are discussing Almost a Scandal by Elizabeth Essex, a book that we discovered while looking for new releases :) You can find out how much we enjoyed it here.


Almost a Scandal by Elizabeth Essex
published by St. Martin's in July 2012
Bold, brazen, and beautiful, the Reckless Brides refuse to play by society’s rules of courtship. But—come hell or high water—they always get their man..

For generations, the Kents have served proudly with the British Royal Navy. So when her younger brother refuses to report for duty, Sally Kent slips into a uniform and takes his place—at least until he comes to his senses. Boldly climbing aboard the Audacious, Sally is as able-bodied as any sailor there. But one man is making her feel tantalizingly aware of the full-bodied woman beneath her navy blues...

Dedicated to his ship, sworn to his duty—and distractingly gorgeous—Lieutenant David Colyear sees through Sally’s charade, and he’s furious. But he must admit she’s the best midshipman on board—and a woman who tempts him like no other. With his own secrets to hide and his career at stake, Col agrees to keep her on. But can the passion they hide survive the perils of a battle at sea? Soon, their love and devotion will be put to the test...
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: The Reckless Brides, Book #1
