Publisher's Summary

In this funny and frothy novella that picks up where the New York Times best-selling The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue leaves off, freshly minted couple Monty and Percy fumble through their first time together.

Monty’s epic grand tour may be over, but now that he and Percy are finally a couple, he realizes there is something more nerve-wracking than being chased across Europe: getting together with the person you love.

Will the romantic allure of Santorini make his first time with Percy magical, or will all the anticipation and build-up completely spoil the mood?

Critic Reviews

"Anyone who loved Percy and Monty in The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue will want to hear this sweet, brief novella sequel. Christian Coulson returns to narrate as Percy, Monty, Felicity, and their friends enjoy an extended idyll on Santorini, recovering from their adventures and thinking about what comes next. Coulson slips easily back into the characterizations - Felicity is smart and sharp-tongued, Monty teeters between smug charm and self-deprecation, and Percy remains patient and empathetic....It's a funny and tender interlude for listeners who want to spend more time with these characters." (AudioFile Magazine)

Beautifully Written and Performed, BUT...

Beautifully Written and Performed, BUT... NO ONE GETS LUCKY!!! Ugh. Expected so much more than this, such as a sex scene or two!! Very disappointing, left me totally... unsatisfied.

Don’t bother

Thought this novella would bring closure to a Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue...it does not! Instead it presents mainly 2 scenarios, one
frustrating and the other nothing but slap stick. Don’t waste your money or credit.

Patience is a virtue…

Never has an email excited me quite as much as finding out that all my months of waiting for the next adventures (pray they never end) of these three was finally here! Albeit somewhat shorter to my liking, Christian Coulson has forever ruined audiobooks for me! Thankfully, these months were not in vain! and my thanks to Mackenzi Lee always.

Beautiful coda to book 1

This is such a heartfelt, nuanced, funny portrayal of the powerful, messy feelings that surround first loves and first times, and it’s lovely to spend more time with Monty and Percy for anyone who fell in love with them in the first book. Excellent voice performance as well!

Fabulous! The Narrator is Fantastic

So incredibly cute. If you loved The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (especially if you enjoyed the audio version performed by the wonderful Christian Coulson) then you'll want to listen to this one.

Great YA on understanding feelings

Loved it

I have missed this particular literary gang. Mainly, Monty and Percy, though Felicity’s dry sarcastic humor is always a plus. With this novella being as short as it is you really can’t say anything without well... giving away pretty much everything. So what can be said?

One: Christian Coulson is back to narrate (thank goodness).
Two: Monty is still an entire hilarious mess, and hijinks are always abound.
Three: Percy is still adorable, lovable, and to be protect at all cost.
Four: Felicity. The sarcastic queen! Nothing else needs to be said on that.

But truly the novella had a cohesive plot, and there were quite a few moments where serious topics were discussed 10/10.

We Definitely Got Lucky With This One!

What a wonderful (and adorable) novella! It was so fun getting to spend more time with Monty, Percy, Felicity, and the other colorful cast of characters from Lee’s swashbuckling series.

I love that Christian Coulson reprises his role as Monty to narrate this short. My only disappointment with this work was that it was far too short! Still very much enjoyed the listen. I hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of this universe!

These boys

I adore them so very much but the biggest thing I have to say about this beautiful short is Henry Montague and Percy Newton are utter idiots, Felicity is so strong for dealing with them 24/7 😂 do read this though it’s amazing

An excellent romp!

The most hilarious book I’ve read or listened to in years. Seriously by the end of it I was laughing so hard I was wheezing!

Even though it’s only a two hour novella I enjoyed it so much I completely think it was worth a credit.

The perfect little follow on from The gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue, the one problem with it being it just makes you want more Monty and Percy. I almost wish it was a collection of short stories from their life together, but we can live in eternal hope.

The audio performance is perfect and definitely enhances to the book.

Would recommend completely to anyone who has read the first book in the series and has developed a bit of a soft spot for Monty and Percy. Or anyone who has two empty hours on their hands and fancies laughing until they wet themselves.

meh

I have the same issues with this novella as I did for the original book. Monty makes stupid decision after stupid decision and there would literally be no plot if he just was a normal less annoying person.

This story was cute as times, but Monty is just so frustratingly annoying.
