Can’t stand it anymore!
It is very rare that I gave up on a book but I took an immediate dislike to the heroine and the more the story unfolded, the more I hated her.
First she decides at first sight, the hero is a vile rake to never be trusted, and when she discovers he plays matchmaker, she sees it as a way to overpower some plain shy girls not as a mean to help them find love when their shyness lock them on one place.
And later, they share their deepest secrets and when they kiss and engage to m

Too much and not enough.

Rosalind was too vicious and mean throughout to make this pairing with Tristan believable. Downright abusive. In the end I was screaming “don’t do it” to him. The so-called love was utterly facile and unbelievable. The HEA seemed a lie told to readers. While the elements are there in theory, there was nothing trustworthy about the coupling. Even the epilogue falsely praises Rosalind for her forbearance when she instead was delivering yet another abusive cut direct. Not re

This entertaining historical romance, the third in the series, takes a different bent on “shy” from the previous two novels. In this case, instead of a “shy” lady trying to find a match, Sir Tristan, a perceived rogue, plays matchmaker surreptitiously to help shy ladies find a husband. Ironically, Tristan ends up in a relationship with a feisty lady who has been forced to work as a companion for a shy lady after her family’s reversal of fortune. Miss Rosalind Merriweather does not trust the acti ...more

As a few of the other reviews have noted... Rosalind is not a nice person...I really didn't like her. And while Tristan was super likable, it was sad that the good guy falls for the pretty but hateful girl. It was also a little hard to believe the quick change of heart she was also disappointing that after finding out the core of Rosalind's issues, and Tristan reading and knowing people so well, doesn't honor that understanding or his own personal values. Sorry if that's confusing, but ...more

Not my favorite book in this series. I enjoyed the last third better than the first two-thirds. The first part of the book seemed to hit one note, repeatedly. I enjoyed it much more once we saw the interaction between the three friends introduced in the first two books of the series. Would that the author could have found a way to bring the other characters back sooner. But as this was a quick read with a predictable and satisfying ending, I liked it well enough.

I thought the heroine was a little strident and judgmental, but she grows in the book and has many other qualities. The hero also has some growing to do, but I liked him better since he looked below the surface of people. The banter is enjoyable and I would certainly read more in the series. Maybe we'll get the hero's sister's story... ...more
The last book in the Twice Shy series took a little different approach to the theme of a “shy heroine”.

Rosalind is definitely an outlier; not particularly reserved or timid, she is a strong minded – to the point of being bullheaded – and rather quick to pass judgement. I wouldn’t go as far as saying Rosalind is cruel or underserving of the hero, Tristan, as both of them were pretty stubborn when it came to their feelings, but I admit she did jump to the worst conclusions alarmingly quickly.

I’ll get straight to the review. First, Ms. Britton is an excellent writer. Her prose is impeccable. Very impressive. The words flowed smoothly on the page. There was a lot of internal narrative coming from both main characters that could have been edited out, which made the story longer, but it was still an enjoyable read.

Both characters had believable backstories that created conflict between them. Rosalind lost her sister to a rake, and she blames this man for her sister’s ruin and death. Whi

I loved this book....... I don't know what is wrong with some of the other people reviewing this book but I at least know a good book when I read it! Also, Thumper said "if you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all......" and I go by that advice. Any readers out must read this is a keeper.

Took me a while to finish this one. It was fine, but it didn’t hold my interest as much as its predecessors did. Felt like there were too many disconnected subplots going on. But still enjoyable enough.

Not feeling this book to be honest. I don’t see the chemistry between Rosalind and Tristan. Dropping at chapter 5. Disappointed.

It was a slow start but very emotional by the end and worth the wait I guess.
