Review: How to Lose a Lord in Ten Days or Less by Elizabeth Michels

HOW TO LOSE A LORD IN 10 DAYS OR LESS is the first book by Elizabeth Michels that I read. 

This book is the third of the series but can read as a standalone.  I initially picked up this book because I had read a couple of books with the same title (or very, very similar) last month and I loved it!  I thought that this book would be the same.  The story focuses on a stuffy aristocrat, Andrew Clifton, Lord Amberstall and country girl recluse, Katie Moore.  Both have been a little estranged in society and found each other, quite by accident on a country road when Andrew fell off his horse.  Once the two meet, sparks fly and they fall in love.

HOW TO LOSE had a lot of promise.  I love the stuffy-stickler-for-propriety aristocrat and an eccentric girl trope, unfortunately, I had a hard time finishing this book.  I honestly did not like both Katie and Andrew at all!  I felt that Katie was too much for Andrew.  Andrew, on the other hand, was too much of a stickler that I didn't warm up to him at all.  And although sparks were flying between the two, I wasn't into their paring.  It would have been a different story if there were more tender moments between them.  Unfortunately, this was not the case.  

The plot was ok, nothing really special, and a little bit unbelievable at certain parts.  I think it was when I found out why Andrew left society, that I find unbelievable.  Certainly it was a reason to be absent from society but it felt a little too weak, too cowardly.

HOW TO LOSE is an okay lighthearted read.  And although the book was a hard read for me, I am still glad that Andrew and Katie got their HEA.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
