A hilarious and swashbuckling teen historical fiction novel, named one of summer’s 20 must-read books by Entertainment Weekly! A New York Timesbestseller!

A young bisexual British lord embarks on an unforgettable Grand Tour of Europe with his best friend/secret crush. An 18th-century romantic adventure for the modern age written by This Monstrous Thing author Mackenzi LeeSimon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets the 1700s.

Henry “Monty” Montague doesn’t care that his roguish passions are far from suitable for the gentleman he was born to be. But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quests for pleasure and vice are in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

So Monty vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Witty, dazzling, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is an irresistible romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.

My Thoughts:

This was such a fun read. I loved the main character so much. I really was captured from page one. I really loved the dynamics of the cast and also how it dealt with historical based issues like gay relations, female roles and race relations. It also was such a fun adventure story. It was such a quick pace read for being such a long novel. I really grew to love all the characters and I am so excited to see what she does in the sequel. This was book was a prefect mental break.

Later book lovers!
