READ Hazard By Jo Beverley ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Gry at the single most reckless most irresponsible most irresistible man she's ever known. The first chapter chapters The evening Race and Anne meet is probably the sexiest thing ever written and the rest of the book doesn t really hold up Still when you talk about a Jo Beverley book not holding up it s in comparison to the rest of her books which are so magical as to be nigh indescribableBoth characters are likable enough to be forgiven for being occasionally dumb or petty everyone is sometimes I think the problem is that they re trying so hard to stay away from each other sensibly I d think if their world were the real world that their characters don t develop as a cohesive couple very well Like we know that Race loves working with archives and we know that Anne loves working with archives so we know as readers they ll be a great match but they don t discuss it between themselves until nearly the end of the book after they ve already committed to each other It s not that it seems nonsensical their chemistry is uite clear but it seems like Jo Beverly missed some opportunities that could have taken this book to the next levelIn the author s note for one of the previous books Beverley describes the Company of Rogue books as marriage books which sounds a bit odd in the phrasing but is an apt and rather interesting description ie they marry right near the beginning of the book so the hero and heroine can actually form a real relationship and have real conversations throughout the book and encounter and solve real problems rather than being forced by society to diddle around hemming and hawing and sighing over each others shapely wrists and sneaking off into the gardens before they can speak two normal sentences to each other She also classified the old books as historical romances deliberately separating them from her standard Regency romancesAnd that s what Hazard is missing In the ensuing decade between the first Rogues book published in 1991 and this book 2002 I think I wonder if the expectations for the genre became so set in stone that Beverly was forced and into the standard Regency niche If I remember correctly most of the Rogue books from here on out are courtship romances rather than marriage romances It ll be interesting to see if the overarching story issues continue to follow that trend as well Sideways in Neverland Life in the Santa Ynez Valley California up Still when you talk about a Jo Beverley book not holding Pandora up it s in comparison to the rest of her books which are so magical as to be nigh indescribableBoth characters are likable enough to be forgiven for being occasionally dumb or petty everyone is sometimes I think the problem is that they re trying so hard to stay away from each other sensibly I d think if their world were the real world that their characters don t develop as a cohesive couple very well Like we know that Race loves working with archives and we know that Anne loves working with archives so we know as readers they ll be a great match but they don t discuss it between themselves Anayurt Oteli until nearly the end of the book after they ve already committed to each other It s not that it seems nonsensical their chemistry is
