I loved Olivia So much She is brilliant and thoughtful and determined to forge her path as a chemist She is wonderful Thorn, however, is a jerk One little kiss goes awry and he becomes this cynical, bitter man who hides his own genius along with refusing to acknowledge Olivia s Can he overcome his stubbornness to realize she is everything he wants in a partner I read this book in one fell swoop and then was disappointed that it was over so quicklyI think I need to go read it again Sabrina Jeffries writes wonderfully immersive stories especially about large somewhat infamous families I love the irreverence of her characters and their quirkiness Both Thorn and Olivia definitely fall in that category Thorn is a Duke who writes plays in his spare time very successful ones and Olivia is a chemist a very unusual occupation even now Thorn and Olivia were caught kissing by Olivia s mother nine years ago The situation did not end well Olivia s mother blackmailed Thorn Sabrina Jeffries

category Thorn is a Duke who writes plays in his spare time very successful ones and Olivia is a chemist a very unusual occupation even now Thorn and Olivia were caught kissing by Olivia s mother nine years ago The situation did not end well Olivia s mother blackmailed Thorn into proposing to Olivia by threatening to release sensitive information about his family The encounter between them is explosive and changes both of their lives for the next few years Now Thorn s family needs Olivia s expertise to help find outinformation about the mysterious deaths in their family But Thorn is bound and determined to challenge Olivia at every turn They are fiercely attracted to each other but completely at odds It was fascinating to watch them together and see them overcome their differences and personal prejudices against each other I also appreciated that after Thorn came to terms with Olivia as a person of science, he never sought to change her or stop her from doing that type of work Just to take sensible precautions This family is seriously complicated and the family tree at the beginning should probably show up at the start of every chapter But it is worth it I enjoyed it immensely I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley, but these opinions are all my own 3 stars, the backstory for this series is super fun you have three heirs to dukedoms with the same mother who married three times along with their various siblings, half siblings, and relatives this book focused on thorn and olivia who meet at a ball when he d recently come back to england from prussia he spills a

this time because she s helping his half brother olivia was a very likeable character because she clearly loved chemistry but was willing to make compromises instead of being stubborn and irrational about her career her relationship with her stepmother was the sweetest part of the book in my opinion, you could tell they really cared about each other and olivia was the best thing in her stepmother s life thorn was less memorable than olivia but i liked that he was a playwright their chemistry was really strong in the start of the book and i wish the flashback scenes had been extended because their dynamic really got to me in those parts This book was fun and a really quick read I particularly liked how passionate both Olivia and Thorn were about chemistry and theater, respectively, and the way that played into their banter It was clear that they got one another, which can sometimes be glossed over in relationships I was worried at first that Thorn was just going to be an ass, but while he had his issues stubbornness about some things, he also showed a surprising ability to change his mind as he learned things got to know p This book was fun and a really quick read I
