    ~4.5~ It Takes Two to Tumble is a delightful historical romance, not particularly angsty (which is a plus for me) but terribly romantic, brimming with Ben's good nature and easy smiles and Phillip's grumpy ways that mask a lonely heart. The story ends with a HEA (realistic for the t...

    "This is all very interesting," Alton Sedgwick said, stroking his beard. "Very interesting indeed." "No it isn't, Father," Ben said firmly. "Commonplace domestic drama, absolutely not something I'm going to find in one of your poems next year." "Do you read my poetry?" the older m...

    3.5 stars I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Phillip has spent most of his life at sea, as the Captain, he knows his place and is effective in managing his people. When his ship ...

    This was sweet and engaging. Ben is a clergyman whose flock includes the orphaned children of sea captain Phillip Dacre at the local manor. The children are running wild after their mother's death, having successfully driven off several tutors. Ben is cajoled by the locals into moving ...

    Ohhhh swoon ! Loved this book and I have decided I?m a Cat fan - I have enjoyed all of her books so far and have found a new joy for historical romance. This was sweet, beautifully written and had me totally hooked. Ben, the local vicar, found himself the guardian of three unruly chi...

    I'll make this short and sweet, since my last two reviews were a little long-winded. Well, Ill try. It Takes Two to Tumble is the story of sea captain, Philip Dacre, and the vicar, Benedict Sedgwick, who grudgingly agree to work together to stop Philip's three children from running ...

    He was used to commanding dozens of men in clockwork precision. Surely he could make a couple of children -- his own children, at that -- fall in line. You know it was a great read when it takes you almost ten swipes to get to the top of your list of notes in order to compile quotes...

    I can never review these books properly because all I want to do is bounce up and down and say: OMG READ THIS! REEEEEEEEEAD THIS! Cause a happy gay vicar. A grumpy sea captain. Kids that are rounded characters and not plot devices! DUCKLINGS ON BEN'S HEAD. It's such a ha...

    Real Rating: 4.25* of five What a pleasure to escape into a late Regency world where two men grab their happiness instead of allowing the world to order them around. I think this happened, then as now, more often than They thought/think it does. Several things got under my saddle...

    Fun read with a sexy vicar! I liked it. I enjoyed it. There was some nice UST. Great writing by Cat Sebastian. It made me want to eat gooseberry pie. But it wasn?t my favorite work of hers. She?s still a pre-order author for me. And I think she?s a great stepping stone into...

    Many reviews have noted The Sound of Music parallels in It Takes Two to Tumble. For me, that was a very good thing. Because I realize now (as opposed to when I first saw the movie as a six-year old) that Captain Von Trapp could GET it. And while I ordinarily wouldn?t assoc...

    I am basically trash for this author now. I have pre-ordered her m/f Regency romance that is out in April, so hopefully she's just as good on that as she is with m/m. Fair warning, the next book in this series isn't out until July and that is 1,000 years away. Also, this cover isn'...

    "This is all very interesting," Alton Sedgwick said, stroking his beard. "Very interesting indeed." "No it isn't, Father," Ben said firmly. "Commonplace domestic drama, absolutely not something I'm going to find in one of your poems next year." "Do you read my poetry?" the older m...

    Ohhhh swoon ! Loved this book and I have decided I?m a Cat fan - I have enjoyed all of her books so far and have found a new joy for historical romance. This was sweet, beautifully written and had me totally hooked. Ben, the local vicar, found himself the guardian of three unruly chi...

    I'll make this short and sweet, since my last two reviews were a little long-winded. Well, Ill try. It Takes Two to Tumble is the story of sea captain, Philip Dacre, and the vicar, Benedict Sedgwick, who grudgingly agree to work together to stop Philip's three children from running ...

    He was used to commanding dozens of men in clockwork precision. Surely he could make a couple of children -- his own children, at that -- fall in line. You know it was a great read when it takes you almost ten swipes to get to the top of your list of notes in order to compile quotes...

    Real Rating: 4.25* of five What a pleasure to escape into a late Regency world where two men grab their happiness instead of allowing the world to order them around. I think this happened, then as now, more often than They thought/think it does. Several things got under my saddle...

    Fun read with a sexy vicar! I liked it. I enjoyed it. There was some nice UST. Great writing by Cat Sebastian. It made me want to eat gooseberry pie. But it wasn?t my favorite work of hers. She?s still a pre-order author for me. And I think she?s a great stepping stone into...

    *3.5 stars** What a lovely historical love romance between Philipp, a naval captain spending most of his time at sea and Ben, a young and unusual but enthusiastic vicar. Cat?s writing style and the characters she brings to life work very well for me : I cannot help but feel for t...

    Many reviews have noted The Sound of Music parallels in It Takes Two to Tumble. For me, that was a very good thing. Because I realize now (as opposed to when I first saw the movie as a six-year old) that Captain Von Trapp could GET it. And while I ordinarily wouldn?t assoc...

    "This is all very interesting," Alton Sedgwick said, stroking his beard. "Very interesting indeed." "No it isn't, Father," Ben said firmly. "Commonplace domestic drama, absolutely not something I'm going to find in one of your poems next year." "Do you read my poetry?" the older m...

    This was sweet and engaging. Ben is a clergyman whose flock includes the orphaned children of sea captain Phillip Dacre at the local manor. The children are running wild after their mother's death, having successfully driven off several tutors. Ben is cajoled by the locals into moving ...

    Ohhhh swoon ! Loved this book and I have decided I?m a Cat fan - I have enjoyed all of her books so far and have found a new joy for historical romance. This was sweet, beautifully written and had me totally hooked. Ben, the local vicar, found himself the guardian of three unruly chi...

    I've given this a B+ at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars It Takes Two to Tumbleis the first book in a new series from Cat Sebastian entitled Seducing the Sedgwicks , which features a group of siblings who had a most unconventional, bohemian upbringing in a household comprising their fat...

    I'll make this short and sweet, since my last two reviews were a little long-winded. Well, Ill try. It Takes Two to Tumble is the story of sea captain, Philip Dacre, and the vicar, Benedict Sedgwick, who grudgingly agree to work together to stop Philip's three children from running ...

    He was used to commanding dozens of men in clockwork precision. Surely he could make a couple of children -- his own children, at that -- fall in line. You know it was a great read when it takes you almost ten swipes to get to the top of your list of notes in order to compile quotes...

    Real Rating: 4.25* of five What a pleasure to escape into a late Regency world where two men grab their happiness instead of allowing the world to order them around. I think this happened, then as now, more often than They thought/think it does. Several things got under my saddle...

    Fun read with a sexy vicar! I liked it. I enjoyed it. There was some nice UST. Great writing by Cat Sebastian. It made me want to eat gooseberry pie. But it wasn?t my favorite work of hers. She?s still a pre-order author for me. And I think she?s a great stepping stone into...

    I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 5 Stars It Takes Two to Tumble is the first installment in the Seducing the Sedgwicks series. The novel was a wonderfully paced, forbidden, historical romance on several levels, between a ship captain and a vic...

    *3.5 stars** What a lovely historical love romance between Philipp, a naval captain spending most of his time at sea and Ben, a young and unusual but enthusiastic vicar. Cat?s writing style and the characters she brings to life work very well for me : I cannot help but feel for t...

    Many reviews have noted The Sound of Music parallels in It Takes Two to Tumble. For me, that was a very good thing. Because I realize now (as opposed to when I first saw the movie as a six-year old) that Captain Von Trapp could GET it. And while I ordinarily wouldn?t assoc...

    Sebastian's Jack book The Soldier's Scoundrel remains the measuring stick by which I judge Sebastian. So this one is compared to that. We see again her ability to pick up ordinary situations, common tropes and giving them her people feel. Because Sebastian is able to write people, to u...

    "This is all new to me. I'm in a new world without a map or a chart, but you're my compass, Ben, and I know we'll find a way." After a desperate letter from his sister, informing him that his children have become unmanageable and are pretty much terrorizing the village, Cpt. Philip ...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 stars It Takes Two to Tumble is the first book in Cat Sebastian?s new Seducing the Sedgewicks series and I absolutely loved it. I fell in love with Sebastian?s writing from her first book, The Soldier?s Scoundrel, and adored that whole series. I...

    Another enjoyable Cat Sebastian read. :-) ...

    I am basically trash for this author now. I have pre-ordered her m/f Regency romance that is out in April, so hopefully she's just as good on that as she is with m/m. Fair warning, the next book in this series isn't out until July and that is 1,000 years away. Also, this cover isn'...

    4.5 stars! ??Loved this fabulous book. ?I like historicals and have absolutely loved all of Cat Sebastian's previous books in the MM genre.. this was no exception. The MCs were clearly etched out; Philip, a sea captain and reluctant father to three children has a tough exterio...

    I enjoyed this. Ben and Philip were both really enjoyable characters, as well as the secondary characters - honestly, no character pissed me off in this, even the guy who was supposed to be the asshole, I ended up feeling sympathy for him too - and I loved Philip's children, they were ...

    This book features: - plotmoppets - the plotmoppets' father, a grizzled, Captain von Trapp-esque sea captain - the plotmoppets' nanny, a badly suited novice nun badly suited country vicar* This book does not feature: - goat marionettes - gr8 songs - the Alps - much depth of...

    4.5 stars Another lovely historical from Ms. Sebastian. I particularly loved Ben. ...

    The free-spirited sensitive caretaker + anchored, stuffy sailor. Charmed. Delighted. Lovely. I have only one CS left! ...

    4.5 stars This just became my favorite book by this author. So flipping good. Full review to come. ...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 stars It Takes Two to Tumble is the first book in Cat Sebastian?s new Seducing the Sedgewicks series and I absolutely loved it. I fell in love with Sebastian?s writing from her first book, The Soldier?s Scoundrel, and adored that whole series. I...

    I am basically trash for this author now. I have pre-ordered her m/f Regency romance that is out in April, so hopefully she's just as good on that as she is with m/m. Fair warning, the next book in this series isn't out until July and that is 1,000 years away. Also, this cover isn'...

    4.5 stars! ??Loved this fabulous book. ?I like historicals and have absolutely loved all of Cat Sebastian's previous books in the MM genre.. this was no exception. The MCs were clearly etched out; Philip, a sea captain and reluctant father to three children has a tough exterio...

    I enjoyed this. Ben and Philip were both really enjoyable characters, as well as the secondary characters - honestly, no character pissed me off in this, even the guy who was supposed to be the asshole, I ended up feeling sympathy for him too - and I loved Philip's children, they were ...

    This book features: - plotmoppets - the plotmoppets' father, a grizzled, Captain von Trapp-esque sea captain - the plotmoppets' nanny, a badly suited novice nun badly suited country vicar* This book does not feature: - goat marionettes - gr8 songs - the Alps - much depth of...

    ~4.5~ It Takes Two to Tumble is a delightful historical romance, not particularly angsty (which is a plus for me) but terribly romantic, brimming with Ben's good nature and easy smiles and Phillip's grumpy ways that mask a lonely heart. The story ends with a HEA (realistic for the t...

    "This is all very interesting," Alton Sedgwick said, stroking his beard. "Very interesting indeed." "No it isn't, Father," Ben said firmly. "Commonplace domestic drama, absolutely not something I'm going to find in one of your poems next year." "Do you read my poetry?" the older m...

    3.5 stars I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Phillip has spent most of his life at sea, as the Captain, he knows his place and is effective in managing his people. When his ship ...

    This was sweet and engaging. Ben is a clergyman whose flock includes the orphaned children of sea captain Phillip Dacre at the local manor. The children are running wild after their mother's death, having successfully driven off several tutors. Ben is cajoled by the locals into moving ...

    Ohhhh swoon ! Loved this book and I have decided I?m a Cat fan - I have enjoyed all of her books so far and have found a new joy for historical romance. This was sweet, beautifully written and had me totally hooked. Ben, the local vicar, found himself the guardian of three unruly chi...

    I'll make this short and sweet, since my last two reviews were a little long-winded. Well, Ill try. It Takes Two to Tumble is the story of sea captain, Philip Dacre, and the vicar, Benedict Sedgwick, who grudgingly agree to work together to stop Philip's three children from running ...

    He was used to commanding dozens of men in clockwork precision. Surely he could make a couple of children -- his own children, at that -- fall in line. You know it was a great read when it takes you almost ten swipes to get to the top of your list of notes in order to compile quotes...

    Real Rating: 4.25* of five What a pleasure to escape into a late Regency world where two men grab their happiness instead of allowing the world to order them around. I think this happened, then as now, more often than They thought/think it does. Several things got under my saddle...

    Fun read with a sexy vicar! I liked it. I enjoyed it. There was some nice UST. Great writing by Cat Sebastian. It made me want to eat gooseberry pie. But it wasn?t my favorite work of hers. She?s still a pre-order author for me. And I think she?s a great stepping stone into...

    Many reviews have noted The Sound of Music parallels in It Takes Two to Tumble. For me, that was a very good thing. Because I realize now (as opposed to when I first saw the movie as a six-year old) that Captain Von Trapp could GET it. And while I ordinarily wouldn?t assoc...
