Dueling Review: Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas (2016)

If Erin were to review this book, she would call it a Recommended Read. If Holly were to review this book, she would write a Rant. Clearly, we needed to review this book together.

Welcome to Dueling Reviews.

Moderated by Ingrid, the Voice of Reason.

Holly’s Take 

Heat Factor: If you’re into the whole dynamic where a shy virgin teaches a sexually experienced hero how to “make love” with her magical vagina, then it’s pretty sexy

Character Chemistry: Please ignore Helen’s personality transplant

Plot: High melodrama thanks to a ridiculous and honestly unnecessary plot device

Overall: SO DISAPPOINTING. This is the book that made me give up on Lisa Kleypas

Erin’s Take

Heat Factor: There are a couple of sex scenes, but it’s mostly angsty pining

Character Chemistry: They don’t spend a great deal of time together, but somehow I still felt they had great chemistry

Plot: Angsty unworthiness and unsolicited advice all around!

Overall: LOVED IT. Kleypas heroes are basically my kryptonite, and Winterborne was no exception.
