Quick Review: When Harry Met Molly by Kieran Kramer

When Harry Met Molly (Impossible Bachelors, #1)When Harry Met Molly by Kieran Kramer

My rating:  
Pretty good book, but it lacked something to make it great. 

Dashing Lord Harry Traemore is perfectly content to live out his days in the pursuit of pleasure. But when he’s named by the Prince Regent as one of society’s “Impossible Bachelors,” Harry is drafted into a ribald romantic wager. The rules of engagement are scandalously simple: The bachelor whose mistress wins the title of “Most Delectable Companion” gets to remain unmarried. Harry is utterly unconcerned about his status...until his latest lightskirt abandons him.

Enter Lady Molly Fairbanks. Harry’s childhood friend— actually, “foe” is more like it—is the most unlikely companion of all. She’s attractive but hot-headed, and in no mood for games. Besides, what could the self-indulgent Harry possibly know about what makes a woman delectable? It’s time for Molly to teach him a lesson once and for all...but will it lead to “happily ever after”?

When Harry Met Molly is the first installment in the Impossible Bachelors series by Kieran Kramer. This is also the first novel I've read by her.
I can honestly say, I really enjoyed her writing style. The characters were well written and fun to read along with. The humor was witty and charming. The banter between Harry and Molly is refreshing.
The only thing I can say that stopped me from giving this four stars was the way the woman were treated. Yes, I know it was supposed to be that way, but that doesn't mean I had to like it. I particularly didn't like the sac race scene. I don't hold it against the writer, it was bold and different, I just get annoyed with men in those periods sometimes. *laughs*

That being said, it was still worth the read. After reading this I immediately went on to the next in the series. It was a fun, light read, with mystery and lots of romance. I recommend it to anyone wanting a humorous historical romance.
