This is a quick and mostly lighthearted read. Mary Contrary is based on the nursery rhyme and Lady Mary is truly contrary, especially with Blake. He may be deserving of it but I found Mary to sound petulant and whiny much of the time. Thus the contrary nickname. I really couldn't tell how old she was since much of the time she sounded like she was 13. I didn't know what to make of Blake. Had this been a full length novel I would have wished for more depth in his growth process but in a story this short there just isn't time. He does grow into himself over the course of the story.
The story is clean and a quick easy read that might lend itself to a quiet evening when you just want pure entertainment and nothing to interrupt the show.

Sex: some innuendo in rumors (proven false)
Language: no
Violence: no
*I received a complimentary ARC of this book and chose to review it voluntarily.
