Review

The Sport of Baronets was entertaining, but even though I enjoyed it there just wasn’t enough character build-up, which I like reading. BUT..this is a novella so I won’t hold it against the author! It just means that I will certainly be reading more from Theresa and I will probably fall in love with her full length novels!

This reminded me very much of Romeo and Juliet, but I still thought it was a very sweet love story. I absolutely LOVE the banter between Hannah and Bart, it helped form a very awesome relationship. Such a great couple!

Very easy read and very enjoyable! The short snippet of the next book wasn’t enough for me though and I can’t wait to read it!!

*I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
