Good friends to lovers story Thea and Rhys have known each other for a long time though they haven t seen each other in six years Thea is twenty two sees herself as rather plain and not particularly appealing to men She still has a fairly romantic view of life and feels hurt and betrayed when the man who had been courting her is revealed to be a fortune hunter Desperate to avoid a marriage arranged by her father she flees to her old friend Rhys hoping he ll escort her to her godmother in VeniceRhys had been stood up at the altar six years earlier Since then he has become something of a rake known for his mistresses and his avoidance of anything marriage related Now that the war is over he has decided to embark on the Grand Tour he didn t have when he was younger He admits to himself that it s another way of putting off the need to marry for a little longer A few hours before he s due to leave Thea shows up on his doorstep begging for his helpI loved the relationship between Rhys and Thea from the start Thea is practical honest about her views of herself and others She still believes in love despite her heartbreak and is determined not to marry unless she finds it She is confident in her own ability to manage life on her own until she does Though she hasn t seen him in six years she s confident enough in her friendship with Rhys to believe that he will help her I loved seeing the way she talked her way past his alcohol induced fuzziness to get him to agree to take her along with him I felt a little sorry for him because he was no match for her in his condition By the time they were on the road he was beginning to regret it but he stood by his promise and didn t send her homeThe threads of their friendship are still there and are just as strong But there is something else that is there also an attraction that neither wants to admit to Thea has been in love with Rhys for most of her life though she tries to convince herself that she has outgrown it She knows that Rhys s preference seems to be for beautiful blonds not plain brown haired women What she feels now is far different that what she felt before Rhys spends a fair amount of time trying to reconcile his memories of his friend Thea and the woman she is now He has a hard time understanding why he s attracted to her when she s so different than the women he usually pursuesAs the journey progresses their relationship progresses also I loved seeing Thea s independence and how she was ready to live life on her own terms It was great fun to see her stand up to Rhys when he tried to discourage her I loved the way that Rhys kept getting reminded of the fact that Thea is a grown woman His bouts of jealousy were pretty amusing especially in the way that they confused him It was great to see them finally admit their attraction to each other though they still denied that it was Their first attempt to be together didn t go uite as planned and was a pretty funny scene to read Thea realizes pretty uickly that her love for Rhys had never gone away just had been buried But she still doesn t believe that she has what it takes to keep Rhys s interest Meanwhile Rhys remains fixated on his vision of what he wants in a wife in spite of his reluctance to actually look for her When they reach their journey s end both will have to decide what they really want That doesn t come easy with each of them remembering what they had said at the start of their voyage and not wanting to risk their hearts again There s a surprise encounter with the past that livens up their first night in Venice and gives Rhys something to think about He runs but doesn t get too far before realizing what he s wanted all along I loved that Thea didn t sit around waiting for him but tried to make the best of her situation I liked Rhys s big moment at the endThe secondary characters of Thea s maid and Rhys s valet were really good I enjoyed seeing their views of the travels and their developing romance was a good counterpoint to Thea and Rhys s I also enjoyed the appearance of Giles Benton whom they rescued from the coach wreck I loved seeing the way that his friendship with Thea

This was a charming romance set in France and Italy with a strong heroine and some wonderful dialogue provided by the publisher through netgalleySo what did I like The heroine is spunky determined curious rather on the plain side and believably vulnerable She s not an idiot she understands what she s getting herself into and still takes the plunge Her joie de vivre is a blast of fresh air for everyone around her The setting in a kind of early 1800s road trip way really brings the story to life It s relatively subtle how as the story moves further from London the characters hold on less tightly to conventional norms The towns they travel through are brought to life but don t dominate the story Loved it The story works I m not a big fan of the friends to lovers trope in whatever century it s set but in this story it seems to work well enough for me to not be bothered by it anyway The hero and heroine balancing friendship with love is really nice and their first attempt at doin the dirty is pretty amusingWhat did I not like so much The hero remained too much of a mystery for me to really engage with The story is too much written with the heroine in mind and not balanced with the hero s story beyond the background He started out as tall dark and handsome who d been jilted and pretty much stayed that way whereas we learned an awful lot about the heroine s wants and needs The ending felt unsatisfying After spending most of the story sympathizing with the heroine s desire to be independent and to make her own life the ending left me feeling somewhat cut adriftSo 3 stars I liked it

Originally posted HEREI love Louise Allen s writing I love that her characters are both fun and also feel truly British I love pretty much everything about how she constructs her storiesWhich is why I picked up a review copy of this one even though I tend to despise the set up mentioned in the blurb the heroine who sneaks away in men s clothingFirstly that particular piece of storyline is dispensed with very fast Secondly the way it was written in Unlacing Lady Thea was just fineFriends to lovers plain Jane who has always loved the hero but been eclipsed by spectacular women there re some popular tropes used in this book but I think they were done well not just same old same old Tell me Thea You It was a whisper What did you say Don t mumble For a moment I thought you said it was me I loved that Rhys forgot that in their six year separation Thea had grown up and that he kept mistaking her for the girl she was in the past It was funny to see him forget time and time again that she was already out already thinking of marriage Because he kept her as a girl in his head it took him a while to see her as anything different You aren t a child any longer Was she She looked about seventeen if he was generous This book takes us on a wonderful journey through France and Italy and anybody who has visited any of these places is going to love hearing about people of the past living and loving in them The author s note at the front of the book says that Allen worked her own travel experiences into the story and you can tell It feels so authentic Impossible How can I sleep like this Count dolphins jumping over rocks Rhys murmured in her ear Sheep would get too wet Idiot she murmured I just really liked this story I loved the way the relationship developed and I liked the secondary characters who were servants There was even a little secondary romance going on in the background I loved that it managed to be fun a lot of the time even with the drama and hurt feelings of the characters Call him out For pity s sake Rhys on what pretext I ll find one I am certain I can take an offence at his hat or his face or the way he laughs I also loved that the hero s black haired blue eyed looks are put down to his Welsh heritage that there was a reason for them I definitely tire of that stereotypical look being used in every historical romance set in England considering it is not the standard look of the average EnglishmanI was starting to worry about my beloved HarleuinMills and Boon Historical line with recent reads including a male prostitute and a romance based on a rape Unlacing Lady Thea has well and truly restored my faith Review copy provided by NetGalley
