Reading this novella is all fun and games until it makes you achingly aware of the lack of cuddling you're experiencing in your life.

So without further ado, here's a list of iconic and memorable moments in this book!

First of all, nothing will ever come close to touching the humor and perfect execution of the question do you mean to tell me that you have not actually fornicated yet? being met with the incredulous and slightly indignant response dear God, Felicity

I'm soo going to savour this!!
Well, as soon as I get my own copy of course! ;-P

This was entirely adorable and so utterly awkward it was hilarious! I actually could read an infinitely long series about Percy and Monty, juuuust saying in case the bookish gods want to grant that request. It is pretty much 50pgs of Monty and Percy trying to have sex and everything of ever going wrong. 😂It made me laugh out loud though. I love their banter and Monty's panic meltdowns and the fact that the worst thing in the world that's ever happened to him is getting his hair wet in the ocean. ...more

The Gentleman's Guide to Getting Lucky is a sweet, sexy, short romp about love and sex and planning a future together.

I absolutely LOVED Mackenzi Lees Montague Siblings Series, particularly The Gentlemans Guide to Vice and Virtue . It was so unique, so fun, so romantic, and so poignant. Monty and Percy are easily one of my favorite literary couples in recent years.

This novella is an amuse-bouche of sorts, coming in at slightly over 100 pages. Here Monty, Percy, Felicity, and the

Ugh, this was ridiculously cute and hilarious and I can die happy now. My heart is so full and my stomach hurts from laughing.

If you didnt already know, I fucking adore Monty and Percy. I love them and The Gentlemans Guide so much that Im still, after six months and reading it three times, unable to write a review because I dont think I can write down just how much I love everything about these characters and these books and how important I think they are.

not enough sex

i feel PLAYED. ok not really, i knew that i couldn't possibly expect a torrid love scene in a historical fiction YA. but sometimes a girl just wants to dream.

this was really sweet & just reinforced everything we already know. percy is a sweet cinnamon roll & monty has feelings that he is bad at letting out. this didn't add much in the way of character development or story but it was cute. and they're cute.

the end.

I fell in love with Monty & Percy all over again, smiled so much that my cheeks are still a bit sore, and basically, this is the perfect novella, and I cant wait to read Felicitys book.

I would teach my body to regrow my heart each time I gave it to him, over and over and over again. Heart after heart after heartevery one of them his.

The gang is back in this short, but sweet novella. It's abso-bloody-lutely FANTASTIC! Fans of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue will not be disappointed. Mackenzi had me laughing, shrieking, and as usual sighing "Oh, Monty."

Also, if you've listened to the audio book and fell in love with Christian Coulson's voice like I have, he might sneak in narrating as you read.

Sum of feels in a gif

Don't sleep on this people! Go pre-order your copy of The Lady's Guide to Vice and Virtue today wherever

Omg it was so fluffy and wonderful and I nearly laughed many times while I was supposed to be paying attention to my professors in class. I adored it. I sincerely hope that this series is more than a duology, or that there's going to be something separate to follow Felicity's adventures. Wonderful.

I raise my head, and he turns to me. "I love you," I say quietly. "You know that?"
"And I you, my darling boy."

Update: no dejo de sonreír como boba desde que terminé esto. Monty tiene esa capacidad de hacerme hiper feliz con su estupidez y profundidad no intencionada (:P) que me puede.

The Gentlemans Guide to Vice and Virtue - ★★★★

This reminded me how much fun I had reading TGGTVAV.
This was funny, and although this is about this marvelous couple getting some, they didnt in fact got some it this short story but out of it.

In some ways I feel betrayed but it was still a great read so Ill not get to mad about that.

Now Im ready to read the next one!

This book was everything I didn't know I needed. Monty is a disaster in the most entertaining yet heartbreaking way possible. Percy is, of course, the sweetest most wonderful person to ever grace the earth. Felicity, though, is the real MVP for trying to hook them up.

This is a story where everything that could go wrong does in fact, go wrong. But, of course, things don't just go wrong, because no, that would be far too boring. Too mundane and commonplace for one such as Monty. In this book,
I mean, "funny and frothy novella" pretty much says it all!

OMG this was SO funny! I wasn't expecting it. Being honest, I've always had a conflicting relationship with Monty, but I still love the couple with Percy. I think they're adorable together and this little novel was all I needed from these two


4/5 Stars

For a moment I thought Monty would be the same old Monty again, but it wasn't like that and I liked seeing him more open about his feelings and thoughts, and as for Percy, I just love him

I reach out before I can stop myself and push his hair behind his ears, then lean down for a kiss. When our lips meet, I swear I feel my ribs strain from how full I am with loving him.

This was everything that I hoped that it would be. I love how awkward Percy and Monty were in this and how precious and adorable they are together. Reading about them brought out a huge grin to my face and it made me realize how much I had missed my babies. It was short and sweet.
