It Happened One Midnight ( Pennyroyal Series # 8) by Julie Anne Long





It had been some years since I last read a Pennyroyal Green book.
And I don't even know why.

I absolutely loved #5 in the series What I Did For a Duke. And so far the latest volumes _ unlike the first ones _ have not disappointed me.
This one _ due to unknown circumstances -_- _ has been sitting on my TBR pile for quite some time, and during the first time I picked it up, I couldn't seem to pass the first pages.

Now, after having gone through some YA reads that bored me to death, I was more than ready to start an historical romance with adult characters, who would hopefully behave as adults.
I am happy to report that they did! ;)

There's not much to say about this one: this is a story of friends to lovers romance.
When you look at Tommy _ Thomasina *poor girl*_ and Jonathan's situation, they don't seem to have anything in common. But at their hearts, they're passionate people that care deeply about justice being made. And I loved them for it.

I also had a few laughs at Jonathan's expense every time, children _ his future children _ were mentioned. 
 
"Jonathan shook his head to and fro. “They’re bloody exhausting. It’s always ‘don’t!’ and ‘stop that!’ and ‘be quiet!’ or ‘speak up!’ . . . they’re completely anarchic creatures. Animals make infinitely more sense.”
“Children?”
“What else!”

When to that one adds their friendship, the story was pretty much perfect. 
 
"Thank you, Jonathan."
"You're welcome, Burden."
 
See? :D


Buy it!
