ARC Review: The Infamous Heir by Elizabeth Michels

Title: The Infamous Heir

Author: Elizabeth Michels

Synopsis:

The Spare Heirs Society Cordially Invites You to Meet Ethan Moore: The Scoundrel

Lady Roselyn Grey’s debut has finally arrived, and of course, she has every flounce and flutter planned. She’ll wear the perfect gowns and marry the perfect gentleman…that is, if the formerly disinherited brother of the man she intends to marry doesn’t ruin everything first.

Ethan Moore is a prize-fighting second son and proud founding member of the Spare Heirs Society—and that’s all he ever should have been. But, in an instant, his brother’s noble title is his, the eyes of the ton are upon him, and the lady he’s loved for years would rather meet him in the boxing ring than the ballroom.

He’s faced worse. With the help of his Spare Heirs brotherhood, Ethan’s certain he can get to the bottom of his brother’s unexpected demise and win the impossible lady who has haunted his dreams for as long as he can remember…

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

I read this book on a whim because I was in the mood for another historical romance and therefore it was a really pleasant surprise when this book ended up being as amazing as it was. I really loved this story.

First off, I just really loved Ethan. If someone was to ask me for an example of the ultimate historical romance hero and why I love this genre so much I would definitely tell them about Ethan Moore. He's not a perfect character by any means. He has a lot of faults and makes a lot of mistakes but at the end of the day he's a good man and you can't help but love him. I also really liked Roselyn although she did try my patience a bit with the way she was so quick to jump to conclusions without any evidence. But at the same time she wasn't unreasonable and would admit she was wrong when it came down to it.

The romance in this book was great. The way the author executed everything in regards to Ethan and Roselyn's relationship was perfect and I really enjoyed it from the beginning to the satisfying HEA. But romance aside I just really loved the overall story. It was a bit predictable, but the way the author went about it kept everything interesting and exciting compelling me to continue turning the pages.

Overall, this was a really superb historical romance. It was a great start to this new series and I can't wait to read more about the Spare Heirs Society in the future.
