The Luxe

Es to the debonair bachelor Henry Schoonmaker to the spiteful maid Lina Broud threatens Elizabeth's and Diana's golden future With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders Elizabeth must choose between family duty and true love But when her carriage overturns near the East River the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current As all of New York grieves some begin to w So I d be lying if I said I was oozing with excitement to read this book In fact I put off reading it for just about a year A really good friend of mine recommended me this book and told me I d absolutely love it but when I bought the book I let it gather dust in the corner of my bookshelf There are two reasons why I put off reading this for so long One because its a Historical Romance I cannot even begin to tell people how much I HATE okay hate is a strong word but seriously I don t like them Historical Romances I don t know what it is about Historical books but for whatever reason I can t get into them I tried reading Entwined and that was a bust I tried reading Soulless and that was a dnf Its mainly the time period the way of life and the characters that puts me off and no matter how hard I try I can t get sucked in The second reason is that this book is in the third person When I read books in third person I hardly ever give them five stars no matter how well written because as I ve said before I want to make a connection to the characters I understand that this is difficult to do especially when a writer wants to incorporate than one voice in the novel but at the same time I feel almost shut off from everyoneSo then finally one year later I picked this book up because the book I wanted to buy wasn t coming out until Saturday I didn t feel like reading anything else and I had only a minute to choose a book before I had to leaveAnd oh my god yeek I loved this book I don t know how to explain it but I did I fell in love with a historical romance third person book Who would have thunk it I can t even begin to describe how much I loved this bookAt first the beginning started off a little slow but then things began to pick up speed ergo the snowball effect My heart simply burst for Elizabeth I can completely relate to her when she thought about how trapped she felt in her life especially since her mother was forcing her into marriage but then when she admitted she was in love with Will her glorious sexy coachman I think I died Although Elizabeth would be characteristically described as fake I applaud her Because despite her wishes she wanted to do what was best for her family but in the end she decided to do what was best for herself And she really truly loved Will Even though we unfortunately didn t get to see much of him in this book their love was innocent and true something I have not seen in a long time Elizabeth Will 3Then there s Diana Elizabeth s feisty little sister God was she a beaut She s the girl that most teenagers become when they try to find themselves I really have nothing bad to say about her because she was so true and real to herself yet completely opposite of Elizabeth Usually when it comes to siblings I prefer one over the other but both girls were great to read about and I am glad that Diana did not resent her sister in the end Enter Henry playboybachelor extraordinare When I first read about him god I couldn t stand him He was arrogant annoying and frankly a man slut He was also macking it up with Penelope who didn t seem to mind in the least and in a way I m glad his father wanted him to straighten out although his father did it for selfish reasons instead of fatherly concern Then there was a change in Henry something gradual yet sudden small yet monumental and so so beautiful Watching him fall in love with view spoiler Diana was the greatest thing And I loved how she made him feel like crap at first She really showed him how much of an ass he was but he still loved her and she loved him Their circumstances however were completely unfair hide spoiler Red Tail (Travis Trilogy year A really good friend of mine recommended me this book and told me I d
