Overview

Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas

Love has designs of its own.…

To all of London society, Lord and Lady Tremaine had the ideal arrangement: a marriage based on civility, courteousness, and freedom—by all accounts, a perfect marriage. The reason? For the last ten years, husband and wife have resided on separate continents.

But once upon a time, things were quite different for the Tremaines….When Gigi Rowland first laid eyes on Camden Saybrook, the attraction was immediate and overwhelming. But what began in a spark of passion ended in betrayal the morning after their wedding—and now Gigi wants to be free to marry again. When Camden returns from America with an outrageous demand in exchange for her freedom, Gigi’s decision will have consequences she never imagined, as secrets are exposed, desire is rekindled—and one of London’s most admired couples must either fall in love all over again…or let each other go forever.

About the Author

Sherry Thomas burst onto the romance scene with Private Arrangements, one of the most anticipated debut historical romances in recent history and a Publishers Weekly Best of the Year book. Lisa Kleypas calls her “the most powerfully original historical romance author working today.” Her books have received stellar reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Chicago Tribune, and Romantic Times, along with enthusiastic praises from many of the most highly trafficked romance review websites and blogs.

Her story is all the more interesting given that English is Sherry's second language—she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's Sweet Savage Love with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys creating stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession, plays computer games with her sons, and reads as many fabulous books as she can find.

Not a typical romance where the stubborn but virginal beauty wins the jaded rake. Gigi and Camden fall in love quickly but they are both too young and selfish for a lasting relationship. They are far from perfect and the author gives us flashbacks to tell their story while they struggle ten years later through a divorce. The best books leave you frustrated and wondering what-if. That is what made this book impossible to put down. I also love the flashbacks in her books. It is great to see characters have changed as they find their way back to each other-something Rhett and Scarlett did not have. The 1893 setting was wonderful as well.

I hated how the book shifted from the present then the next chapter there past ...again and again...also how her mother had her story in there to....instead of focusing on one romance it felt like to...also gigi was not a character I even cared for...she was a cold hearted b*tch, who plotted to get what she wanted a titl and says she only wanted a marriage of convenience, then falls in love...I wont spoil it, but this book was surly lacking..I love books with cheating , scandal and rogues..and romance . Makes for an interesting read..this fell flatt.

I am surprised by all of the great reviews for this book. I actually read Thomas's Not Quite a Husband before this one and loved it. I thought I would give Private Arrangements a try because it was her debut and had such great reviews. I also like darker romances and edgy plot lines. This book failed completely in keeping me engaged in the characters. Despite more emotional stories, the characters still need to have redeeming qualities and the writing still needs to keep the story going. Camden has to be one of my top 5 WORST romantic lead characters. There is almost nothing redeeming about his character. I also dislike Gigi but Camden definitely has to take the lead in more disgusting character in this story. And why she goes after him at the end is beyond me. While I don't mind some flashbacks the constant back and forth in this story was pretty disjointed for me and didn't really help the flow of the story. Of course, I didn't like where the story flowed so that could have been a problem for me throughout the book.
