Thanks to the publisher for the complimentary finished copy. All opinions provided are my own.
Is this the most eccentric romance I have ever read? I think so.
Maybe it’s because the hero was once dead & the heroine Angelika Frankenstein-ed him, making him from a couple of different available corpses & bringing him back to life in hopes he would be in love with her (& also in hopes of having a huge accomplishment to mark down in her brother’s feud with another scientist- rival).
Maybe it’s because the most romantic moments and even the lesser give full Morticia & Gomez from Addams Family vibes, a comparison made by others & which had me excited to pick this one up.
Maybe it’s just all of the little small details. And there are many 🤣. Angelika’s attraction to thighs. Victor eating his apples. The pig.
But Sally Thorne’s Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match is absurd and stuffed with quirkiness (it cannot be contained) & also with goodwill. Because no matter what the Frankensteins do or how many natural laws they break, it’s made very clear that they do have big hearts as well.
Just your conventional type of romance 😆 .
It was hard for me to pin down my feelings on so much of this book including a love triangle-ish situation. On one hand the love triangle often leads to more absurdity so it fits the theme but on the other it goes too far for me.
But this book has some truly romantic moments, a general sense of exuberant & romance-loving IDGAFs, the leads have a real & true appreciation for the other, & there’s a Frankenstein story that had me saying “what?!,” “oh,” “that’s really sweet,” & probably “what” again 😆.
It’s a romance that breaks a lot of the rules & part of me was like “no! Don’t do that” & the other part was like “this is fun” 🤣 .
4⭐️. Out 09/06.
CWs: Angelika looks at the other MC’s genitalia when he’s dead while she is designing the resuscitated body to come. Angelika really wants a baby & they question whether Will will be able to impregnate her. Violence. Reference to death of parents. Theft.
Give me that HEA, please.
