    Reading this novella is all fun and games until it makes you achingly aware of the lack of cuddling you're experiencing in your life. So without further ado, here's a list of iconic and memorable moments in this book! • First of all, nothing will ever come close to touching the humor and perfect execution of the question “do you mean to tell me that you have not actually fornicated yet?” being met with the incredulous and slightly indignant response “dear God, Felicity” • I genuinely strive to Reading this novella is all fun and games until it makes you achingly aware of the lack of cuddling you're experiencing in your life. So without further ado, here's a list of iconic and memorable moments in this book! • First of all, nothing will ever come close to touching the humor and perfect execution of the question “do you mean to tell me that you have not actually fornicated yet?” being met with the incredulous and slightly indignant response “dear God, Felicity” • I genuinely strive to cultivate the same holy union of eternal chill and unsubtle snark of Felicity Montague • she radiates such mom energy I want her to embarrass me and make me breakfast • “I stepped on a cockroach this morning when I got out of bed; did I tell you that?” “I know, I heard you scream” • To be fair to Monty, anyone who says they’re not even moderately afraid of cockroaches is either lying or naïve • Speaking of which, let’s have a discussion about Monty • I love him. That’s it. That’s the discussion. • Look, I didn’t ask to be a fan of Monty. I didn’t ask to have my life disrupted by a tiny meatball of a man who’s half 18th-century-version of a frat boy and half sensitive artist. Why this? Why me? I didn’t ask for this • Monty telling Felicity Jesus would be mad at her for stealing his day when her birthday fell on Easter one year • Percy: *mentions how tiny Monty is* Monty: (ง •̀_•́)ง • Monty solemnly stating that the only reason Odysseus resisted the sirens was because none of them had an ass as fantastic as Percy’s • Monty: *takes a deep breath* Monty: Percy— Anyone who has spent five seconds around Monty: yes, Percy has a nice ass, we know, you love Percy’s ass. You could write a goddamn opera in honor of his ass WE KNOW WE GET IT YOU LOVE PERCY’S ASS • Monty, lamenting the lack of whoopee in his life: “I’m a bit concerned my virginity is starting to grow back.” • [puts both hands on Monty’s shoulders and gazes intently into his eyes] Monty, you fucking moron, that’s not how it works • Monty unsubtly flexing while cuddling with Percy to impress him with his meaty arms I guess • Monty factually maintaining that he would be “sporting a semi” if Percy so much as sneezes…. or breathes…or generally exists • in Monty’s defense, no man will ever be as attractive as Percy emerging from the ocean shirtless, water dripping on his chest and a wide grin on his face, inviting Monty for a swim. That’s just a fact • So I'm sure you've caught on that this novella is pretty much just about Monty making commendable (if doomed) efforts to get laid • I wish I put as much effort into my college assignments as Monty did for such a noble cause • Also, I can’t overstate my appreciation for how committed Felicity was to assisting Monty in finally smashing Percy • Not only did she come up with an ingenuously elaborate plan to get rid of the sailors aboard the ship, she also tidied up the room and lit candles and arranged for food on the table • Are there……. are there real siblings like Felicity Montague…….? do they…..exist? • What I should have been worried about: how I am going to pay for college What I'd been worried about: how Monty & Percy will get it on without ruining their relationship • Seriously. This novella should just be called “Two times Monty didn’t get laid and the one time he di—what’s that? That didn’t work either? Well…” • I'm actually slightly concerned about Monty, he was literally half-dead of blue balls by the end • “In my defense, we were left unsupervised” • I mean, look, that’s relatable • Plus being the gay human disaster of the family is hard work but someone (Monty) has to do it • Also apparently, Percy Newton, the human manifestation of a condensed sunshine, reads erotic leaflets in his past-time • I don’t know what to do with this piece of information. Percy’s my son. I’ve never thought about him like that and I never will. In fact, I already forgot about it. goodbye • Jokes aside, I binge read this book and it was the best therapy session I’ve ever had • Percy and Monty love each other so much which prompted a very awkward moment in which I realized the actual physical ache in my chest is because of the romance between two fictional characters • I love them so much I don’t really want to use words, just flail my arms and shriek in different pitches to express my feelings • and I'm warm with the satisfaction of knowing that Monty and Percy will forever be okay because they’ve learned the most indispensable Relationship 101 lesson: • you know what’s ultimately so fucking hot? an open and healthy communication and feeling validated and understood and appreciated. Fuck yeah!! • also, not gonna lie, I almost cried at Scipio fiercely apologizing to Monty for ever feeling like he had to hide who he is from him, and apologizing that the world makes him feel as though he has to • a fictional pirate is literally a better father figure than most dads in the world “I wish I could travel backward in time and tell Monty of two years ago, lying on the lawn of his father’s house with a bruised rib cage, realizing he was falling in love with the only person who gave him a reason to live, that he'd be here someday.” BLOG | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM | TUMBLR

    This was entirely adorable and so utterly awkward it was hilarious! I actually could read an infinitely long series about Percy and Monty, juuuust saying in case the bookish gods want to grant that request. It is pretty much 50pgs of Monty and Percy trying to have sex and everything of ever going wrong. It made me laugh out loud though. I love their banter and Monty's panic meltdowns and the fact that the worst thing in the world that's ever happened to him is getting his hair wet in the ocean.

Anyway, aww, this is the cutest and I am so excited for Felicity's book. Because the list of things I am capable of has been thoroughly exhausted in the last month: sunbathing and sleeping late and looking handsome while eating grapes. "You're my reward." "Shit reward I am." "Why do you think everyone needs some sort of recompense for being around you?" he says, his voice so gentle I almost start to cry. MONTY WHO PANICS WHEN ASKED TO TALK ABOUT HIS FEELINGS 😭💛

    4.5 stars. The Gentleman's Guide to Getting Lucky is a sweet, sexy, short romp about love and sex and planning a future together. I absolutely LOVED Mackenzi Lee’s Montague Siblings Series, particularly The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue . It was so unique, so fun, so romantic, and so poignant. Monty and Percy are easily one of my favorite literary couples in recent years. This novella is an amuse-bouche of sorts, coming in at slightly over 100 pages.

I absolutely LOVED Mackenzi Lee’s Montague Siblings Series, particularly The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue . It was so unique, so fun, so romantic, and so poignant. Monty and Percy are easily one of my favorite literary couples in recent years. This novella is an amuse-bouche of sorts, coming in at slightly over 100 pages. Here Monty, Percy, Felicity, and the crew of the Eleftheria are enjoying some R&R on the island of Santorini, and all are plotting their next move. While Monty and Percy’s feelings about one another are now out in the open, Monty finds himself nervous for the first time about the next steps in their relationship. Why does the idea of intimacy with Percy scare him when he’s always been a bit of a rogue? Why is he so frightened of Percy's wanting to plan a future together? "I have never in all my born days been this clumsy about getting tangled up with someone. Perhaps it’s because it’s Percy, the first person with whom I’ve ever made it this far that mattered. Or perhaps it's because in the shadowy corners of my heart, I know I'm the sort of person you romp with for one wild night and then you climb out the window before I wake. The sort of person no one wants to be around unless there's some kind of reward involved, preferably of a sexual nature. Not the sort you bet all your chips on a life with. How long before he realizes that? And how much longer before he regrets wasting his first time on me?" This is such a sweet, sexy story, complete with the ribald silliness that is a hallmark of these books. The craziness goes on a tiny bit too long, but ultimately, it’s just too darned short!! It’s certainly whetted my appetite for Lee’s next book in the series, which is due out in August 2020. If you’re a fan of these characters and this terrifically fun, creative series, make sure you get your fix with this book! See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com.

    WE HATE RICHARD PEELE! Ugh, this was ridiculously cute and hilarious and I can die happy now. My heart is so full and my stomach hurts from laughing. If you didn’t already know, I fucking adore Monty and Percy. I love them and The Gentleman’s Guide so much that I’m still, after six months and reading it three times, unable to write a review because I don’t think I can write down just how much I love everything about these characters and these books and how important I think they are. I could WE HATE RICHARD PEELE! Ugh, this was ridiculously cute and hilarious and I can die happy now. My heart is so full and my stomach hurts from laughing. If you didn’t already know, I fucking adore Monty and Percy. I love them and The Gentleman’s Guide so much that I’m still, after six months and reading it three times, unable to write a review because I don’t think I can write down just how much I love everything about these characters and these books and how important I think they are. I could seriously pick it up right this moment, like I want to, and delight in it just as much as I did the first time. I LURVE it. Anyways, the novella. Really it’s more of a short story because it’s really very short, 50 pages, but omg it was sooo fucking cute and such a perfect morsel of love, happiness and humor and I’m just SO HAPPY ABOUT IT. I love the small references that Mackenzi made back to Gent’s Guide, it made me feel like I was sharing an inside joke with friends. There was a lot of talking going on between Monty and Percy, which I was so happy about because they are extremely bad at talking about their feelings, and I loved seeing them starting to create the foundation for a strong, honest, and communicative relationship. Monty and Percy were so sweet and in love, and I couldn't stop swooning and laughing at the situations they were putting themselves in. There were multiple times when I whispered aloud "oh dear God Monty!". This is YA, and although I had a small hope, I knew I wasn’t going to get the detailed scenes that I do in my adult MM but that being said.. This was pretty freaking good, and I just want to applaud Mackenzi for not only bringing such an amazing couple to YA, but also being like “Yep, I’m going to write a whole novella about them trying to have sex with each other, for teens to read, and it’s going to be sweet and full of funny moments and loving words, and there *mostly* won’t be any fade to black because THIS IS OKAY!!”. This review is getting long for a 50 page novella so short answer I FUCKING LOVED THIS! Monty, Percy, Felicity and their pirate companions are hilarious and I love hanging out with them. I want a million more stories about them because I would seriously read about them watching paint dry. While we’re on the topic of Felicity I will say that I was mostly excited for her book to get more glimpses of Monty and Percy, hopefully making out in the background and sticking their hands down each other’s trousers, but this made me love her so much more than I did in the first book, where she was very much a secondary character, and I’m really excited for her book and the shenanigans her and her girl gang get into! "You don't owe me sex. You don't owe me anything. I'm with you because I want to be. And if we're together, it'll be because we want to be. And we are going to London together because we want to. And it's going to be a disaster. But that's all right, because we'll have each other. We'll be disastrous together."

    not enough sex i feel PLAYED. ok not really, i knew that i couldn't possibly expect a torrid love scene in a historical fiction YA. but sometimes a girl just wants to dream. this was really sweet & just reinforced everything we already know. percy is a sweet cinnamon roll & monty has feelings that he is bad at letting out. this didn't add much in the way of character development or story but it was cute. and they're cute. the end.

    Omg it was so fluffy and wonderful and I nearly laughed many times while I was supposed to be paying attention to my professors in class. I adored it. I sincerely hope that this series is more than a duology, or that there's going to be something separate to follow Felicity's adventures. Wonderful.

    OMG this was SO funny! I wasn't expecting it. Being honest, I've always had a conflicting relationship with Monty, but I still love the couple with Percy. I think they're adorable together and this little novel was all I needed from these two 4/5 Stars You can find more of my reviews on my blog A Book. A Thought. For a moment I thought Monty would be the same old Monty again, but it wasn't like that and I liked seeing him more open about his feelings and thoughts, and as for Percy, I just love him OMG this was SO funny!

Plus: to all who love this couple, there are a lot of that in her here and I loved it. I highly recommend you to check this novel out!! Besides I love the author's writing style, I almost died with those sex scenes, so good lol

    4,5 stars I reach out before I can stop myself and push his hair behind his ears, then lean down for a kiss. When our lips meet, I swear I feel my ribs strain from how full I am with loving him. This was everything that I hoped that it would be. I love how awkward Percy and Monty were in this and how precious and adorable they are together. Reading about them brought out a huge grin to my face and it made me realize how much I had missed my babies. It was short and sweet. ↠ 4,5 stars I reach out before I can stop myself and push his hair behind his ears, then lean down for a kiss.

    I usually rate all Mackenzi Lee's books with 5 but not this one. I mean, it was nice to see Percy and Monty on their first time, but I felt it was given more importance it should have had (which is the idea of the e-novella) and in the effort to show it doesn't need to be perfect they really are put in far fetched situations, although I did laugh with the last one hehe I usually rate all Mackenzi Lee's books with 5★ but not this one.

    — 4 Stars! Thoughts while reading: Page 10: I forgot how much I loved Monty and Felicity’s banter. In general I forgot how much I loved these characters. It overall makes me more excited to read The Lady’s Guide and the Nobleman’s Guide books. Page 20: I know a lot of people don’t like Monty but I don’t think I could ever grow tired of him. Page 34: Percy is just adorable! I really hope he gets the night of his dreams. Page 50: Excuse Me?!? I didn’t expect to be slightly nervous about the future ★★★★ — 4 Stars!

Even when people sometimes mess up he doesn’t hold it against them. Page 88: One trait Monty and I have in common is our fear of the ocean. Page 111: Hit me right in the feels with that Scipio and Monty moment. Overall Thoughts: It was a really cute novella. If you like Monty and Percy then it is a must read. But unlike some novellas in other series this is not necessary to read as you continue on with the series. But I recommend it.
