The Bedding Proposal: The Rakes of Cavendish Square

The Bedding Proposal: The Rakes of Cavendish Square - Tracy Anne Warren I received a print copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley.

The Bedding Proposal was a book I had to look past the cover to the flesh of the story to enjoy. Many times I like to picture our hero as the man on the cover while I'm reading historicals because typically they're smoking hot, but the model on the cover looks like he's twelve. I'm not sure if that's done on purpose because our h/h are such age opposites since Leo is the younger of the two or if its just coincidence I dunno. Either way Tracy is a great writer who creates female leads that know how to stand on their own without needing to lean on the male counterpart to carry the story through. Thalia is a little broken but strongly convinced that she isn't interested in seeking further relationships after her previous one was so devastating to her.
I didn't really feel much emotional connection between the two of them aside from the heavy passion play which Tracy does a great job giving us readers. I wish that some of the open plots and questions had been answered because it left me wanting but in no way did I feel unfulfilled by the end of the story because Leo as pig headed as he is strong armed Thalia into opening herself to him until even she longed for his touch.
It's that sort of angsty broken heart rebound type of relationship I don't see lasting forever (if it had been in real life anyhow since we always get our HEA) but it was fun to be a part of it during the journey.
Tracy's writing is fun, its witty and its emotional and keeps just the right balance to keep me with it until the end.
