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 genuinely strive to

I’M CRYING IN A CORNER BECAUSE THEY ARE SO CUTE.
C.G. Drews
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.

WE HATE RICHARD PEELE!

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 didn’t already know, I fucking adore Monty and Percy. I love them and The Gentleman’s Guide so much that I’m still, after six months and reading it three times, unable to write a review because I don’t think I can write down just how much I love everything about these characters and these books and how important I think they are. I could

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 can’t wait to read Felicity’s book.

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.

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

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

"We are tough and stupid together and we are going to be tough and stupid together for the rest of our lives" Los amo, bye.


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 Gentleman’s 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 didn’t 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 I’ll not get to mad about that.

Now I’m ready to read the next one!

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.

I usually rate all Mackenzi Lee's books with 5 but not this one. I mean, it was nice to see Percy and Monty on their first time, but I felt it was given more importance it should have had (which is the idea of the e-novella) and in the effort to show it doesn't need to be perfect they really are put in far fetched situations, although I did laugh with the last one hehe ...more

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.

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
