Read full description of the books:
Sometimes it's just better to not revisit teenage book memories. That Best Romance Ever you read back in high school is probably utter shite. Most likely. Absolutely most definitely.
As hard as it is to experience this harsh waking-up to the fact that Bertrice Small, who I once touted as The Best Bodice-Ripper Author EVAH, is really actually quite mediocre, at least now I will no longer be rec'ing this book as the shining example of her work. I enjoyed Skye O'Malley during a recent re-read. Sure, Skye was ridiculous perfection, and the descriptions of clothes and food were overbearing at times, but it still felt somewhat fresh. And some shit actually happened.
This one...... is over 600 pages of (seriously) food porn, costume porn, and real porn separated by endless redundant dialogue filler as characters inform every other character of what occurred in the last book, and what happened just a few minutes ago in all its AYKB glory. The plot (threadbare thing that it is) spins its wheels throughout, but I was utterly gobsmacked that it took the first 20% of the book before anything actually started to happen.
The best part of the book was when events moved to Paris and the court of Catherine de Medici and Charles IX in the leadup to the St. Bartholomew's Massacre. The intrigues between all the actors was adeptly laid out and I wish there could have been more of that.
But no.... of course Skye, our giving-birth-8-times-heroine-with-the-magically-tight-vag finds herself in the sights of a lech and there's bondage and treacherous bodies and shit. Again. After a lengthy sex scene just a few pages before. Seriously, never have sex scenes been so tedious, simply due to their prolific number. Of course this is why her books are awesome to teenage girls. DUH.
The wheels came off this Buddy Read relatively early, with one totally quitting within the first couple of chapters, but was always on hand to dispense a snarky comment or 2, such as Skye's vag of iron -
"oh come on, it's like tossing a hot dog down a hallway at this point, realistically."
I will not be reading more Bertrice Small - the constant filler of costume porn, food porn, and constant sex scenes make for tedious reading. Not to mention the overbearing domesticity of Skye and her children which is a preview of Blaze Wyndham and her snowflake Nyssa.
I'll keep my remaining Bertrice Small memories, thanks. There must be a gem in there somewhere.
