Review of A Most Unlikely Countess by V.L. Locey
A Most Unlikely Countess by V.L. Locey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
That was fabulous! I love, love, love Lizzie. She might be a shy and withdrawn introvert around most people, but she has a wit that is sharp and sarcastic and kept me laughing throughout the book. Her internal monologue was just as funny as her external dialogue. While she might allow some people to walk all over her, they better watch out when they are inappropriate toward those close to her because she defends them with vigor. That she is in lust with a six-foot-plus Viking god just makes her that much more relatable. Her shyness is painfully hilarious when faced with said Viking god aka hockey goalie Veikko Aho. Case in point, “My brain was screaming for someone in my cranial language department to make words. Obviously they were on a coffee break. Some weird gurgle happened in my throat.”
As for the Viking god, Veikko is HOT. As much as I liked the way he treated Lizzie, I loved the way he was with Lizzie’s mom. It spoke volumes about his character and made is so easy to fall for him … Lizzie never stood a chance. Of course there’s the icing on the cake … the sex was superb. Ms. Locey wrote some panty-melting scenes between Lizzie and Veikko. I’d like to order me up my own Viking god hockey player. While there was not a lot of external drama, what did occur made my heart hurt for Lizzie. Granted, after reading Pink Pucks & Power Plays I expected a happy ending so I wasn’t ready to fling myself off a roof along with Lizzie, but I still hurt for her.
A Most Unlikely Countess is a great sports romance that kept me laughing throughout the entire read. Ms. Locey’s writing flowed smoothly and I enjoyed spending time in Lizzie’s head – again, killer inner monologues. I liked the first book in the series, but I absolutely LOVED this book. While I think it’s going to be tough to out-do this one, I am looking forward to reading O Captain, My Captain – Maggie and Derrick’s story should be a blast too.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
