I was very excited to read the latest installment in the Seducing the Sedgwicks series, Two Rogues Make a Right, by the popular Cat Sebastian, and I'm pleased to announce that it didn't disappoint.

First of all, I highly recommend that you read at least the first book in the series as I don't think this book works particularly well as a stand-alone. It really helps to get some background knowledge about the Sedgwick family before starting this story.

I'm waffling a bit about whether I'll round up on this because while it definitely wasn't my favourite of the series (not that anything could live up to book one, I mean, really), I think I liked it more than book two. Which I also rated 3.5. Whatever, what even is a rating.

What you do need to know about this book, though, is that it is pretty damn pure. Not quite fluffy but.. tender. Though a slow build or even a slow burn would be fairly apt descriptors, more than that, it's all just.. gentlen

I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up

The third Sedgwick brother, Will, has his story told in Two Rogues Make a Right (and look at that lovely cover!), the latest instalment in Cat Sebastian’s Seducing the Sedgwicks series.  It’s a charming, funny, friends-to-lovers romance that had me sighing happily, melting inwardly and thinking ‘awwww’ on several occasions as I read, one of those books that’s like a warm hug you just can’t help sinking into.   It’s not essential to

Today started great - I woke up, put some Chuck Berry on, danced a bit, and before even reading the news, found out Edelweiss had approved my request for an ARC of Two Rogues Make a Right, the latest Cat Sebastian novel. I screamed. I had begged the universe for something good to happen today, anything that could make me forget the world for just a blissful few hours. Hell, I'd even have settled for a few minutes.

I'd give this a thousand stars if I could. It was perfect.
“You’re allowed to be greedy and grasping. You’re allowed to be cross with him. That’s sometimes what love is. It’s not all sweetness and light.”
Initially, I thought I'd borrow it, but it wasn't long until I got sick of waiting and bought it and I couldn't be more glad I did. I knew I'd love it. I read the whole series just to get to it. And in the end, yes, my instincts were once again correct. It literally couldn't fit my preference

This is the third book in the series Seducing the Sedgwicks. It about Will and Martin. Martin in the previous book appeared a bit of a villain.

We start off this book with Martin waking up in the cottage after a Will has kinda of kidnapped him from London to look after him. As they lived together their friendship slowly develops into something more.

Both Martin and Will have both had hardships in their lives in this book.

They are both so sweet together and I loved even when they weren’t together

This was so sweet and not in a make you puke so sickly sweet sort of way. Review a little later - if I can find a working brain cell.

Probably a 4 - 4 1/2 because they did have a little trouble with sharing their feelin's and communicating but they're men so there's that, lol.

wow i hated everything about this
This was so cozy and comforting and lovely.

If you're looking for a plot- or angst- or action-heavy romance, this won't satisfy you, but if you're looking for something slow and sweet, where two lifelong friends slowly come together while one nurses the other back to health, than this is your book. Martin and Will have been best friends since childhood. Will grew up slightly neglected in a rather bohemian household that was falling into ruin. Martin's father was a first class asshole, who also t
3.5 stars

This is a sweet hurt/comfort friends-to-lovers story. Martin has his illness, Will has his PTSD and previous opium addiction. At the same time, both Martin and Will are already in love with each other, thus, that the book doesn't really have big "tension/conflict", you know? At times it feels rather mundane and repetitive.

Basically, Martin assume that he will be a big burden to Will -- while Will thinks that Martin needs the comfort of being a baronet rather than 'shacking up' with an

Two Rogues Make a Right is an sweet and adorable best-friends-to-lovers romance between two flawed, but selfless characters who really needed to learn how to better communicate.

This isn't a tense or plot-heavy book; rather, it is quiet and meandering, taking place mostly in a small cottage in the countryside with piglets who "were very slippery and wished for nothing so much as anarchy. Whenever presented with a dull moment, they began devising new and horrible ways to get out of their pen." I'

After months of searching for his best friend, Will found Martin hiding in his brother's attic on the verge of death. In hopes of saving his life, Will kidnaps Martin to the countryside in hopes of helping him recover. When Martin wakes up, he finds himself in a small country house, being cared for by his best friend, and the man he's been in love with his entire life.

I really cannot believe this is happening. I have to give two stars to a book by one of my new favorite authors. Okay, 2.5, but goodreads won't let me, and I did give 3 stars to book 2 in the series, and I enjoyed it more than this one...

Anyway. I seem to have read a different book than most of my friends, who really loved it.

Martin and Will are precious idiots and I love them whole heartedly. Needless to say, if you enjoyed either of the earlier books in this series, you’ll want to run not walk to read this one: Will Sedgwick is just as compelling as his siblings, Ben and Hartley, and he is equally as deserving of his HEA. Full review to come.

Two Rogues Make a Right is the third book in Cat Sebastian’s wonderful Seducing the Sedgewicks series. While the story does spin pretty directly from A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (my favorite of the three), the essential information is all incorporated here. Those of you who read the previous book may remember Martin as the son of Hartley’s abuser. When Martin’s father died, he left Hartley with a home and Martin with nothing, causing a conflict between them tha

I didn't like this, but it's a testament to Cat Sebastian's writing talent that I even finished it--she really is excellent, so I want to be clear that this was a mismatch between me and the story, not a bad book and you might well love it (though I would definitely recommend reading the first two books in the series first.) This was just a lot of tropes I don't care for...not a big fan of friends-to-lovers and hurt/comfort is not my jam. Can occasionally enjoy a book with no plot, but I have to ...more

This is a great hurt/comfort, grumpy one falls for the sunshine one (though the sunshine one has his cloudy days as well) friends to lovers romance. Cat Sebastian has a tendency to write these kind of sleepy, comfy, pastoral low-angst romances. Will is struggling with PTSD and Martin is dying of consumption and this book STILL manages to be relatively low angst. There's not a lot of external plot going on, and normally I'd be okay with that (I ADORED It Takes Two to Tumble which

This book is honestly a treasure. I felt only the deepest joy in reading it; even when I was sad, even when I was frustrated with the main characters, I couldn’t help but feel the love in every last word and phrase. This is everything I could want from a romance—stupid misunderstandings that are resolved with honest communication, pining, careful attention to consent and comfort, and so much love. Have I mentioned the love yet? Because, oh my god, there’s so much of it.

Sir Martin Easterbrook has either been the "villain" or the bad guy causing issues for the first two Sedgwick brothers so when I started this book, I wondered how the author was going to make me want to read about him for the duration of an entire book.Wonder of all wonders, I actually enjoyed every step of the way.

While not particularly falling in love with Martin, I at least came to understand his motivations and rooted for him to get his HEA. This was of course due to the wonderful writing p

I received a free copy of the book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

My immediate takeaway on reading this book is that I am going to gallop off and read everything else she has ever written.

First: the title is stupid and misleading. The main characters are not rogues. The slightly jaunty title does not match the tone of the book either. This is what happens when you have mainstream publishers coming up with stupid titles for historical romances. Can you tell that this is a bugbe

Rating: 3 stars - it was good

Overall I think this was a case of "it's me, not you" because I just wasn't engaged with TWO ROGUES MAKE A RIGHT. However, I think regular readers of Cat Sebastian will really enjoy this one. I did like both Martin and Will and they were the softest heroes ever, which is something I enjoy. This is a very gentle read mostly focused on these two caring for each other and finding their way after some bad past experiences.

Two Rogues Make a Right is gently addictive, sweet, and gorgeously written-- a full-on powerful antidepressant of a romance novel.

Childhood friends to lovers is both one of my favorite tropes and one I think can be hard to pull off in a substantive way. It's easy to rely on past history rather than showing how two characters forge a bond in the present. But Cat Sebastian excels at this. I love how these Will and Martin love and take care of each other. And that is about the best thing I can say

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

Two Rogues Make a Right is a tender, emotionally honest romance. Cat Sebastian doesn’t deliver sweeping drama, but rather quiet moments that have a hefty emotional impact.

Friends-to-lovers is a trope I adore when done well and Ms. Sebastian does it exceptionally well. Will and Martin are lifelong best friends and neither will hesitate to drop everything to come to the other’s aid. At the beginning of this story it’s Martin, who suffers from chronic illness made wo

This was a lovely tender romance that tugged constantly at the heart-strings. Martin is a bit of grump, but it's paper thin, something Will (and me as the reader) found endearing. Will is struggling with his love (platonic at first) for his friend and a recent addiction to opium. Martin is struggling with consumption, which was ubiquitous in 19th century literature, and nearly absent in modern Regency romances. Cat Sebastian does an exemplary job of showing the character's selfless devotion to e ...more

Cat writes steamy, upbeat historical romances. They usually take place in the Regency, generally have at least one LGBTQ+ main character, and always have happy endings.

Before writing, Cat was a lawyer and a teacher. She enjoys crossword puzzles, geeking out over birds, gardening badly, and–of course–reading. In high school, her parents went away for a week, and instead of throwing raucous parties,

“He wouldn’t ever describe himself as a flirt, but he supposed most flirts wouldn’t. He knew how to make people feel that they were the center of the universe, that was all. There was something worth liking in nearly everybody, and it was no hardship to figure out what it was. The trick was to do so while also hinting, in the vaguest of ways, that it might be nice if they were able to continue this charming conversation in the nearest bed.” 0 likes
