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 cul

WAIT!
What!? O_o
Hold a second!

When did this become a thing and why the freaking hell didn't I know about it?!

I need more Monty and Percy in my life!!
I'm soo going to savour this!!
Well, as soon as I get my own copy of course! ;-P

Mackenzi you make me very happy! XD
I hope you know that. *lol*

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

4.5 stars.

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 Lee’s Montague Siblings Series, particularly The Gentleman’s 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 t

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 seri

I LOVED this, it was so darn sweet and sexy. This is a short YA novella in the saga of the Felicity and Monty Montague siblings - an inbetweener coming after A Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and before The Ladies Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (the titles are just soooo cool, who could resist them?). I’ve only read this inbetweener but I’m definitely going to read the AGGVV and TLGPP. A new book in the series is due out next year – I’ve already tried begging at the doors of NG and EW, but ...more

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, ever

How does one express their love for Monty and Percy in a short little review? They don't.

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.

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."

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.

Umm excuse me how did I not hear about this and why can't I get it on Amazon???!!!! Someone help I need this in my life!!!

Update 10/18/18

Well now I'm a little irked that I found out only people who pre-ordered TLGTPAP and sent an email to Lee got a copy of this ebook. So I guess all of us who had no idea just miss out?! Great...

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.

Oh Monty, you have to love Monty for his good intentions and bumbling ways. This was a cute, short novella that I was glad to read as a sort of epilogue for book one and bridge between the main novels in the series. I’m always happy for more Monty, Felicity and Percy.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

Well, there's 17 hours of my life I’m never getting back.

All right, it was probably only 30 minutes. It just felt longer.

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!
