Book Review: Society Girl by Alys Murray [85/100 * 2019]

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

“Finding love in this world was so hard. If he could write it into a song and give it back to people…maybe they would remember him. Maybe he would mean something.”

📚 Series: Maybe?
📚 Genre: Romance.
📚 POV: Third person.
📚 Cliffhanger: No.

⚠ Content Warnings: Misogynistic pigs! Ugh. I hate them. Public Humiliation. Prejudice.
⚠ Read if: you love stories about English nobility, but in a modern setting.

Society Girl tells the story of half-American Samantha/Sam Dubarry that only wants to be loved and accepted by her newfound father who is part of an all-male secret society, Animos. Though her halfbrother Thomas hates what she is doing, she insists on going through hell just to get that stamp of approval.

In her journey, she experiences an instant attraction with their mechanic, Daniel. But she is someone jaded and does not believe in love, and Daniel is a hopeless romantic. Plus, love can hinder her goal to be the first female member of the Animos Society.

Aaaaah. This was such a great quick romance read. A cynic and a romantic plus throw in the British noble life in the mix!

I enjoyed the healing, self-love, and acceptance that Sam goes through. I love Daniel and all the musical references scattered throughout this book. This was a very satisfying read that was so hard to put down!

I think that this would turn into a series, but I am a bit unsure. If it would, though, I hope it would be the story of Thomas and his Mud Duck, Iris.

What an amazing romance! Congratulations to the author!
