I have a serious case of book amnesia with this one, and I only finished it yesterday. Despite that, I have to write a review because this was a Hope Tarr Buddy Read, and Sarah will KILL me if I "forget" to write one. Life is HARD sometimes, you guyzzzzz!

So ... some stuff definitely happened in this book. Seriously. There were words, and things happened. Was I particularly entertained or inspired by the things and stuff and words? Not really. The Tutor isn't awful or anything, just boring to my
2.5* Not bad, but not great. I'll admit up front I'm not a big fan of historical romance, so I'm probably biased from the get-go. The characters didn't seem true to the time period, although I'm no expert. And the main point of the story seemed to be the multiple sex scenes. Otherwise there really wasn't much of a plot.

Hope Tarr brings sensuality to a peek with her newest historical release, The Tutor. Following the conclusion of her “Men of Roxbury House“, Victorian trilogy, Hope Tarr decided to give secondary characters innocent Lady Beatrice Lindsey and rogue Ralph Sylvester, their own story.

Very disappointed. I was so excited to see that Blaze has a historical line, but it's not at all what I was looking for. A good choice for someone looking to feed their Shades of Grey cravings. I for one was expecting the characters to be more interesting, but really was just saddened that someone believes humiliation leads to a freeing of oneself or can be the base of a respectful, loving relationship.

Enjoying the story, though I rarely read historicals. Lovely writing!
Finished the book and the wonderful writing made me want to read more of Hope Tarr's books and more historicals. I wanted to give this book 4.5 stars, but that option isn't available.

This was a great read. Quick, sexy, and best of all, there was a believable story line as well. I enjoyed all the characters, was never bored, and this was the second read for me...just as much fun as the first time. A definite keeper!

What a lusty surprise! Good story, interesting time period and extremely steamy romance. I know Harlequin Blaze's are a little spicier than other Harlequin lines but this was really smokin'!

This books was one of the most amazing romance novels I have read. It was a great mixture of plot and of course those steamy scenes.

Loved this book. Loved Ralph Syvester. Loved Beatrice's inferiority complex towards her older, beautiful sister which she eventually overcame. Loved the steamy sex. Loved the Victorian time frame.
