The Gentleman's Guide to Getting Lucky – Mackenzi Lee

The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky (Montague Siblings, #1.5)

The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky is a super short novella that bridges the time between the Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and the second book in the series, the Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy. Monty, Percy, and Felicity are stuck on an island, forced to read, swim, and sunbathe all day. The horror! While they wait for the boat repairs to be completed and decide what they’re going to do with their lives – Percy and Monty must discover who they are now that they’re together. Years of pining has actually turned into a relationship and both feel the pressure.

Monty has been a bit of a rake for years and must prove to Percy that he’s turning over a new leaf for him, willing to move at whatever pace Percy is ready for, and learn to experience his life without always turning to drinking so that he can truly experience everything (even those pesky emotions). Lee’s wit and humor always come across wonderfully in her books and this book is no exception. I really enjoyed reading this novella, even though it didn’t truly add anything earth-shattering to her world it helped to further the relationship between Percy and Monty and character development is always important.

It was super cute at times, usually witty or funny, and you will likely feel a lot of emotions or kinship throughout this book as each character struggles with a variety of choices and moments in their lives.
