REVIEW: Bombshell

“In the last two weeks, I have drugged an earl, broken the nose of a thug thrice, and robbed a viscount…”


Ok, y’all know that I’m not a heavy romance reader; when I got chosen for Booksparks Fall Reading Challenge there were a few in the track I was assigned to. And if you send me a book, I’m going to read it!
So, I think if this book were sold with a different cover and were labeled historical fiction and not romance, I would actually choose it. The cover and category allude to the fact that there are some hard eye roll gooshy love moments and some overly spicy naked moments, but to be honest there was a real story with some bada** action to keep me interested.

Sesily is an anti-hero – to polite society she is a proper woman who refuses to be caught marriage, but secretly she and her friends are a ring of female vigilantes trying to take down the rich men who abuse those “below” them. Enter Caleb, her sister’s business partner and a man with a past to hide. Cue the butterflies and porn music. These two fight, they chase and catch and release one another in a never ending cycle until the truth of Caleb’s backstory is revealed.

There are some obvious tropes here but there’s good banter and it was a quick read. I liked the story infinitely more that it was based on a real group of women. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Thanks to Booksparks for a copy. All opinions above are my own.
