Besides, even if Hugh did grow to enjoy her company, it wouldn't matter. a reckless duel has left this brilliant mathematician with a ruined leg, and now, unable to run, ride, or even waltz, he could never court a woman like Sarah, much less dream of marrying her.… (más)

The banter was fabulous ( )
  simplybookdrunk | Jun 20, 2019 |
Ugh I so excited for this series and am trying to desperately like it but all the books are turning out to be boring. This one was no different.

Regency, someone walked with a limp, old duel issues, daddy issues, and I hate you! BUT wait, you're starting to turn me on. Fin.

Will I read the next book in the series? Yes. I am I happy about it? No.

Julia Quinn is really resting on her laurels with me. ( )

3.5, really. I did like the characters, especially Hugh. Good, but not excellent. However, I am enjoying the series as a whole. ( )

The Sum of All Kisses
4.5 Stars

After the disappointment of A Night Like This, the possibility that Hugh and Sarah’s book would fall flat had me worried but The Sum of All Kisses is Julia Quinn at her best.

Love/hate relationships are a particular favorite of mine, and Sarah and Hugh’s initial antagonism ranks up there with Anthony and Kate in The Viscount Who Loved Me. They complement each other so well and their banter is witty and charming. Moreover, the slow build up of their romance is particularly enjoyable as they learn to love and accept each other - flaws and all.

Physically and emotionally scarred, Hugh is the epitome of the tortured hero who feels himself unworthy and undeserving of love until he meets his match in Sarah, a spirited and engaging heroine although selfish at times. The two bring out the worst and the best in each other as Hugh learns to accept that it is not shameful to accept the help given by a loved one and Sarah learns give of herself selflessly.

The conflict is minor and revolves around Hugh’s diabolical father and his nefarious machinations, which are a little on the farcical side but make sense within the context of the storyline. It is very entertaining to see Sarah get the upper hand with him although he does deserve a more significant comeuppance.

The Smythe-Smith family dynamics are another highlight and I look forward to reading the next book in the series although I’m not sure who the heroine will be - perhaps Iris. ( )

This book had me chuckling from the first page or two. I love Julia Quinn's characters. It was a wonderful book. Only took half a star away cause I felt slowed down by the bit with his father but other than that great book!!!

Dec 24, 2015 Updated review for Audio Edition:
Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
(Smythe-Smith Quartet #3)

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This was a good story and as always with Julia Quinn I found myself chuckling out loud every so often. This is the tortured/wounded hero plot (not a total favourite of mine) but Quinn writes it well. Hugh was a good guy and even though the two leads start off disliking one another (which is a favourite plot point for me) they find commonalities and start to enjoy one another's company.

Sarah is a stubborn, woman who is trying to be less selfish. I enjoy their banter, wit and of course a few of my favourite characters make an appearances - Francis and Lady Danbury. I wasn't keen on “the contract” and thought it kinda put a damper on the story.. which, I know was the point in the first place.. but still..

The narrator did a wonderful job. She did a Fantastic Lady Danbury! I would gladly listen to her again.
