Description:

From the USA Today bestselling author of Boyfriend Material comes a riotous Regency romp full of art, expensive hats, and a love that is nothing short of spectacular.

Peggy Delancey’s not at all ready to move on from her former flame, Arabella Tarleton. But Belle has her own plans for a love match, and she needs Peggy’s help to make those plans a reality. Still hung up on her feelings and unable to deny Belle what she wants, Peggy reluctantly agrees to help her woo the famous and flamboyant opera singer Orfeo.

She certainly doesn’t expect to find common ground with a celebrated soprano, but when Peggy and Orfeo meet, a whole new flame is ignited that she can’t ignore. Peggy finds an immediate kinship with Orfeo, who’s just as nonconforming as she is—and just as affected by their instant connection.

They’ve never been able to find their place in the world, but as the pair walks the line between friendship, flirtation, and something more, they may just find their place with each other.

Review:

This is a tough review to write because I’m still not sure of my feelings on this book. On one hand, the gender and queer rep is fantastic and important. On the other, I almost DNFed it multiple times and really only got into the book in the final third of the story. I think this will be a great book if you adore Alexis Hall and their writing style and a bit of a chore if you don’t. I’m squarely in the middle. I’ve read some Alexis Hall books that gripped me from the start and others that I had to force myself to finish. Both Peggy and Orfeo were great characters and the plot of this book was very interesting. It just took me a long while to connect with the story.
