    ~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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Probably my favorite book of 2017. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this book. Excellent characterization, delicious tension, perfect narrative pacing. I kept covering my face and cooing like a pigeon while I was reading it, and I sobbed big fat tears of joy at the end. ...

    *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...

    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'...

    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. ...

    I was utterly beguiled and charmed by this romance. Cat Sebastian can write, people! :D Hands down one of the best I've read all year. ...

    I NEED THIS NOW. POSTHASTE. QUICK MARCH. GIMME. ...

    "He was handsome, Ben supposed, if you liked angry men, which Ben wouldn't have thought he did." This is Regency Age-of-Sail romance that takes place in a village instead of on board a ship. I read it on the plane the day after touring a replica of Captain Cook's ship at the maritime m...

    3,5 Good but not great. I'm sure a less nitpicky reader will enjoy this book more than I did. ...

    I loved this, great read and I look forward to more in the series. Ben and Philip are lovely together. This story is set in 1817 England. I am not fond of Regency Romance, I dislike reading about petty goings on of the aristocracy. This however, while set during the Regency, is ...

    [Adult romance] I love the pure sweetness in so many of Cat Sebastian's books, and this was a comfort read from page 1 onwards. I stayed up FAR too late finishing it, because it was too delicious to stop! I love that her romances are so genuinely *romantic*, the characters are adora...

    3.5 stars I really liked it but I didn't love it as much as I did Sebastian's previous books. For a story that has reminiscence of Sound of Music (but with less kids and no songs) the children are strangely a bit absent. So the transition between Phillip the stern estranged father t...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Probably my favorite book of 2017. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this book. Excellent characterization, delicious tension, perfect narrative pacing. I kept covering my face and cooing like a pigeon while I was reading it, and I sobbed big fat tears of joy at the end. ...

    *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...

    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'...

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

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

    I was utterly beguiled and charmed by this romance. Cat Sebastian can write, people! :D Hands down one of the best I've read all year. ...

    ~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...

    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...

    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...

    Probably my favorite book of 2017. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this book. Excellent characterization, delicious tension, perfect narrative pacing. I kept covering my face and cooing like a pigeon while I was reading it, and I sobbed big fat tears of joy at the end. ...

    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...

    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'...

    "He was handsome, Ben supposed, if you liked angry men, which Ben wouldn't have thought he did." This is Regency Age-of-Sail romance that takes place in a village instead of on board a ship. I read it on the plane the day after touring a replica of Captain Cook's ship at the maritime m...
