The Duchess War by Courtney Milan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I won't lie.. I was so confused for the first half of this book. There was a lot of talk about parliament and handbills and there was a huge secret with Minnie and I didn't understand if she was an actual lady and I didn't understand her "games" she was playing with everyone. Honestly the only reason I kept reading was Robert. I am in love with him. He was smart, handsome and shy. He didn't wasn't to be a duke but instead of turning into a lazy rake, he was trying to do something with his title. So I respected him and his shyness was just adorable.
Now while I didn't understand what was happening with all the games Minnie was playing with Robert, I think that no one else would have suited Robert. Especially for someone who wasn't born into privilege or up to a dukes social level. She wasn't cowed by him. So I do think they worked well together.
I liked them together.. when they finally came together. I didn't understand anything they talked about at first and honestly I still don't understand a lot of it. But that's 100% my fault. As soon as I hear anything to do with the government in a historical book, I tune it out. I tried to understand at first but then I was like meh boring.
Will I read the next book in the series? Probably... eventually.
