New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with the next Hell's Belles novel about a chaotic bluestocking and the buttoned-up detective enlisted to keep her out of trouble (spoiler: She is the trouble).

With her headful of wild curls and wilder ideas and an unabashed love of experiments and explosives, society has labeled Lady Imogen Loveless peculiar...and doesn't know she's one of the Hell's Belles??a group of vigilantes operating outside the notice of most of London.

Thomas Peck is not most of London. The brilliant detective fought his way off the streets and into a promising career through sheer force of will and a keen ability to see things others miss, like the fact that Imogen isn't peculiar...she's pandemonium. If you ask him, she requires a keeper. When her powerful family discovers her late-night activities, they couldn't agree more...and they know just the man for the task.

Thomas wants nothing to do with guarding Imogen. He is a grown man with a proper job and no time for the lady's incendiary chaos, no matter how lushly it is packaged. But some assignments are too explosive to pass up, and the gruff detective is soon caught up in Imogen's world, full of her bold smiles and burning secrets...and a fiery passion that threatens to consume them both.… (más)

I feel as though this is a major betrayal to Sarah MacLean (since I listen to her podcast every week and know she works hard on her writing), but I wasn’t really feeling this very much and now am completely reconsidering all my past reads and thoughts. Imogen and Tommy have been endgame since they met a few books ago (this definitely edges the line of actually reading as a standalone in this quartet), so I’m glad that they finally got together. It’s just I realized that it didn’t feel as though there was much character development here in all the action which doesn’t work for me anymore (especially after waiting a year between books).

I gorged on MacLean at the beginning of my romance reading renewal five years ago but have only now had them one by one annually; my reading tastes have changed with character development now as my jam way more than plot (although the plot here had a ton of filler in it without much momentum until the very end which was oddly wrapped up). Anyway I’m pretty bummed here and now am wondering if I want to ever reread any of her novels. I’m still going to finish this series out (I don’t think the Duchess reveal at the end was as shocking to me as it seemed to be to others), but honestly I have no problem waiting and am not feeling the must-read aspect anymore.

This is the third Hell's Belles book, which centers around Imogen, the scientist Belle who loves explosives. Her love interest is Detective Tommy Peck, who we've met in the previous books, so this is a slow-burn romance that is finally culminating as they investigate a series of explosions in the East End of London.
Imogen is an earl's sister and is considered on the shelf because of her scientific bent and the chaos she invokes with her experiments. She and Tommy are aware of each other from back in the first book, but he regards her as too far above him in class and an impediment to his investigations, even when she provides him with needed evidence. Imogen doesn't plan on marrying anyway, but she's fascinated with Tommy.
The plot is somewhat predictable with corruption in both Scotland Yard and the House of Lords, but it's a good read. However, I'm looking forward to the next book as I want to know what's going to happen with Duchess and her mysterious absent Duke. ( )
