In The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky, Monty’s epic grand tour may be over, but now that he and Percy are finally a couple, he realizes there is something more nerve-wracking than being chased across Europe: getting together with the person you love. Will the romantic allure of Santorini make his first time with Percy magical, or will all the anticipation and build-up completely spoil the mood?

This little novella is utterly adorable and I am sick. I need a million Monty and Percy books because they are so precious and I love how their first time is so them. It wouldn’t be Monty and Percy if there wasn’t a mess of feelings, little arguments, blushing, and distractions getting in the way lol. The synopsis says it all so I won’t go into major details but this novella is all about getting down to the deed. Monty is not used to monogamy or first times being a big thing so he is at a loss on how to go about all of this. Never fear sister is here. And by sister I mean Felicity. She helps Mr. Montague come up with a place to woo and dazzle Mr. Newton. But, when the time comes things go a little left. But, never fear these two cuties figure their way out any situation.
Monty is still hilarious and clueless and Percy is still adorable and sweet. I missed everything about them and their interactions. We actually got a little character growth in this novella because it was right where Gentleman’s Guide left off. Which means poor Monty struggles a bit with his new found resolve to be a better person but, with Percy there to help him he finds his way.
As I have said, I love Lee’s writing a lot and enjoy her wit and character development. I love her way of writing romance and how innocent yet not way it feels. I loved this novella a lot and if you were able to get it run right now and read it because it is so enjoyable. If you have missed these two you will love this a lot.
“I look down at his hand and laugh without quite knowing why. “You deserve some sort of
reward for putting up with me.”
“You’re my reward.”
“Shit reward I am.”
“Why do you think everyone needs some sort of recompense for being around you?” he says,
his voice so gentle I almost start to cry.”
I raise my head, and he turns to me. “I love you,” I say quietly. “You know that?” “And I you, my darling boy.”
