One thought on “A Lady Of Expectations

  1. Rachel (BAVR)

    Is it too harsh to say that A Lady of Expectations is a waste of paper It isn t even a flaming pile of poo that would give it too much personality It s nothing It s a blank maw of cliches It s the color beige without the convenient color template options A Lady of Expectations is likely the most boring book I ve ever been obligated to finish Fuck this book My time is worth SO MUCH MORE than what this Jane Austen Fanwank Tribute Piece gave me Moving onE STORY Jack Lester of the unfortunate surnam [...]

    godawfulorter book My fairest damsel, although we have met only five minutes ago, you possess blonde hair and blue eyes and know how to maintain a house therefore we are in love Let us marry Oh my rougish darling, we cannot For you are fake poor and I am fake poor and at least ONE of us needs to be super rich for this relationship to work out And you you are landed gentry You need to repair the roof on your castle and feed your bloodhounds and whatnot Fear not, gentle maiden I have been hiding m [...]

  3. Laura

    This book is the vanilla ice cream of regencies it s perfectly plain But compared to the outlandish freakshows that pass as regency fiction these days, it was actually pretty nice to read.

  4. Jody

    This book did not seem to be up to my usual standards for Laurens I loved the Cynster series This was Ok but just not great Man, recently wealthy, must find a wife without letting on he is rich He meets the lady he wants and then she keeps saying at least to herself that there is no hope for them because he must marry money.Cousin who is having her come out at the same time and her country beau comes up to convince her to come back and marry him Lester takes him under his wing to get the lady to [...]

  5. Rebecca

    This was a nice enough book but the whole I cant marry him because he needs a wife with money just went on FOREVER driving me mad I understand if someone had told Sophie earlier the main drama in the story would have been lost, but it was very frustrating.And really, would my grandmother who gave me the book approve of the shenanigans going on after she finally accepts the proposal D

  6. Elke

    Even in her early days of writing Stephanie Laurens dragged me into her wonderful world of romance and rouges, Of Debutantes and Dowagers I cry and I laugh I want to slap the chits with hair than wit Then tumble in bed with the hot and steamy men that catch my heart and warm my dreams I highly recommend any and all books by Stephanie Laurens.

  7. Julie

    Great story line, absolutely loved it As Linda Howard puts it on the cover of the book All I need is her name on the cover for me to buy the book so true in this case also.

  8. Lori Yvette Fernandez Lopez

    This is a sweet, funny read I love Stephanie Lauren s writing style It is lofty and closer to a regency style composition than most other romances out there.

  9. Plum-crazy

    So so romance, nothing exceptional but amusing enough to pass a couple of hours It reminded me of Amanda Quick but not quite as engrossing in my humble opinion Having said that, I would read further books by this author as next time I d know not to expect anything too deep the style s perfect for those times when you just want a bit of light romantic escapism.

    Unbelievably I found a book by Stephanie Laurens that is part of a series that I haven t read This happens to be the second in the Lester Family Saga series Jack Lester is a very wealthy man, unbeknownst to the rest of society and something he prefers to stay that way due to the money hungry mother s who are looking to make successful catches for their daughters Jack however knows that if he going to ever gain the requisite heir and the spare he is going to have to find himself a wife This isn t [...]

  13. Natasha

    I loved this book The story is so compelling Its set wonderfully and that whimsical romantic in me it ticked all the boxes I recently found this author through my local library and am now wanting to read of her titles Looking for romanticism this book will not disappoint A great read.

  14. Kirsten

    This was one of the interesting Laurens novels, probably due to the plot The developing relationship between Sophie Winterton and Jack Lester is at the core of the book Lester knows what he wants Sophie and Sophie is under the misapprehension that Jack needs to marry well to secure his position in society and so they begin their courtship dance A dance that continues right through until the end of the novel There is some intrigue but not as much as she usually puts into her books This didn t de [...]

  15. Helene Harrison

    Review I preferred Jack Lester as a hero to Jason Montgomery He was willing to accept love and to fight for it, which is a human reaction The characters were deep and interesting to read about than in the previous book If it s possible I think I preferred A Lady of Expectations to the last one in the Lester series, The Reasons for Marriage I felt that the description was also complete I think the constraints of the time were conducive to a traditional courtship, but I like how the character [...]

  16. Lita Bouquard

    Jack was a great character in the previous book in the series He and his brother Harry were a bit wild, raucous and fun In this book he decides to marry and becomes dull Previously the Lester family was known to lack funds Due to speculation, they now had a lot of money but the matrons of society don t know that yet To avoid match making mama s Jack decides to marry for love before their wealth becomes common knowledge He sees the perfect girl, Sophie and proceeds to woo her The plot is weak she [...]

    3 e 1 2 E io vi posso assicurare che non desidero, n ho mai desiderato una moglie ricca Voglio solo voi, mia bellissima, adorabile Sophie Per tutta la vita Poi con un bacio le tolse il fiato.Anche questo secondo capitolo della serie si mantiene sulla riga molto classica e un po superficiale del primo Certo qui l autrice si impegnata un po di pi , la sensualit leggermente meno soft ma niente a che vedere con i romance moderni XD , c l abbozzo di una seconda storia d a parallela e il contorno dell [...]

  18. Roshni Agarwal

    I have read most of Stephanie Laurens Cynster I really liked it So when I came across this book I was excited But once I started reading it, I found it a major disappointment and it was a task to finish it.The main characters were not developed enough Jack Lester was an over confident hero with no layers in his character and Sophie Winterton came as simply dumb and not a strong leading lady as I have seen in previous books The sub characters were annoying.Overall I will never recommend this book [...]

  19. Maura

    Well this was a rather unexciting book Let s follow this guy as he courts this girl who thinks he s not really courting her because he needs to marry someone rich and she s not Only he really is courting her and he s going nuts with jealousy because she s being courted by everyone else And so they go through their boring day to day business with very little passion IMHO and any and all excitement happens in the last 2 chapters of the book Oh and the steaminess factor of this one is easily a nega [...]

  20. Amy

    I agree with most of the other reviewers that the story lacks depth e.g it s one I love him but point is repeated a lot However, I enjoyed this because it was decidedly lacking in a lot of the contrivances I ve come across with historical romance with the stereotypical stubborn woman who does something reckless Instead, this is a leisurely romp in the garden with a well behaved lady A nice change For that, I appreciate the subtly of the storyline.

  21. Tami Greaney

    I didn t realize until I pulled this up on that is was part of a series but I wouldn t have guessed I really enjoyed it A light Regency romance I expected this to be Jane Austen y, but it a nice read anyhow I ll have to check out the rest of the saga If my library copy would have had this cover I don t think I would have given it a second glance.

  22. Felicia Glaser

    I did not really finish this book I only kept listening to the audiobook as there was nothing else around at the time I thought it might be something like Pride and Prejudice, however, it was a very poor imitation, moved slowly, and its characters were not notable in the least Sorry to say, it was a notch below the typical 3.00 romance novel.

  23. Morgan Pugh

    Jack Lester if London society discovers his hidden wealth, he ll never find the right wife.Jack s heart races when he first lays eyes on Sophie She is everything he desires and , but he is caught in his own trap Believing that Jack needs to marry into wealth, Sophie rejects all his advances, certain he would never marry a poor girl like her.

  24. Mum

    The ending was so weak that it detracted from the strength of the story Otherwise, I would have given it four stars I enjoyed the characters, and the weaving of the subplots It was nice to have a bigger vocabulary than most romances That was a plus for me It s worth reading if you don t want a big bang at the point of resolution on the story.

  25. Tabetha Waite

    This book is the epitome of a simple, Regency romance as depicted by a proper, by the book, courtship The characters and scenes were all rather bland and neither one ever veered from their prim countenance Once or twice I got excited, thinking that Jack would snap and pull Sophie into his arms and kiss her senseless, but alas, he always kept himself in check Quite disappointing.

  26. The Book Junkie Reads . . .

    Sometimes, sometimes a lady s expectation can be wrong But there is still time when they are right Ms Sophie Winterton believes that Jake needs to have a wealthy wife to wed She tries all there is to avert his attentions Jack knows what he wants and when he walks into the ball he see her and is on a campaign to win the love of all love.

  27. Melissa

    I was pretty confused for the first half of this book She likes him, he likes her the challenge to their relationship comes too late to justify why there s a problem However, Stephanie Laurens is one of the best writers of feelings, so I still enjoyed this book for the emotions the characters go through.

  28. Marina

    Ms L is a wonder.Every time I read a book by her I laugh and sigh Her character development and chemistry are perfect to my mind I had fun reading this book.This is a series to READ if you love all things Regency

  29. Angela Smith

    Not as thrilling as the plots of some of her books, but perfect lazy sunny day reading if you need a bit of froth Perfect for me as some of my latest reading had been rather heavy and I needed something a bit lighter.
