💛 Q: do you have any sisters? I have two: one biological & one adopted.
Well I’ve been waiting on this romance for a while. The unapologetically sexy & confident Sesily Talbot—nicknamed Sexily by scandalized Londoners—& the sexy (how many times can I use that word in this review 🤔) self-made American Caleb Calhoun.
Whew, what a ride it was, replete with sexual tension & so much emotion & yearning.
It’s been two years since Sesily confessed her feelings for Caleb & he returned to America. At 30, Sesily is living her calling; scandalizing the aristocracy & using her wits & physical prowess to help bring down the worst men amongst her circle.
But one night—after Caleb has returned to London—he spies Sesily in the midst of a mission & he has questions about the woman most people have discounted, underestimated, &/or completely misread.
As they spend more time together he sees her & she sees him but there’s a reason Caleb hasn’t pursued her…a reason why he thinks he can never act on his feelings.
Bombshell generated a plethora of feelings within me, chief of all a longing for these two to reveal all & accept that they’re meant to be. The yearning, the longing, the desire is strong between Sesily & Caleb 🥵.
So are the emotional nuances in this book. I consider myself to have been punched in the gut with emotion at least once during my reading 😆. Sesily’s complicated feelings for her sisters & her assertion that she’s “tired of wanting” him are particularly powerful.
If angsty reads are your jam, if you love MCs who fiercely want but one of them keeps denying them a path forward, if you crave steam + devotion, Sarah MacLean’s Bombshell is a great bet.
4.5 ⭐️. Release date: 08/24.
