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.”
“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!
