The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee review

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Wow! 😮 This was so fun! I am a huge history geek so when i saw this was set in the 1700s I got excited. But I got even more excited when I learned more about the author. She’s a history geek too, with a degree! So I knew the historical accuracy would be on spot. Mackenzi did not disappoint.

I enjoyed all the characters. Specially Felicity. She’s a bookworm and does not want to do the normal things ladies in that era were suppose to do. Monty and Percy. Awww I just adore them. They were fun. Their relationship was well written.

I was excited when “pirates” popped up. I do love me some pirates. I am so looking forward to the next book and seeing more of Felicity and hopefully more Monty and Percy!!!!

I cannot recommend this book enough. Don’t be surprised to see it end up in my 2018 favorite reads list.
