Lady Serena Wynter is a member of a progressive ladies club. Serena is passionate and independent, sometimes landing in trouble. Charles Townshend is the ultimate gentleman that fights his attraction to Serena due to a disastrous family secret.
I loved the first book in this series; however, I felt this book fell flat. The story was too long; there was not enough content to justify the book’s length. Many ideas and situations would occur but disappear, leaving the reader with a sense of confusion. The push and pull between the couple were not exciting. I liked Serena and especially Charles, yet I didn’t feel the passionate connection I wanted.
I do not read a lot of friends-to-lovers tropes, and I felt it worked; I liked that aspect of the story. I did enjoy the foundation of the plot, and the premise was interesting. Kate Pembroke is a talented author. Say You’ll Be My Lady is the second book in the Unconventional Ladies Of Mayfair series. I like the spunky characters and intelligent dialogue. Unfortunately, this one did not meet my expectations after reading the first book. I will read more of this series because I genuinely like the author and the intrepid ladies of this series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
