5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful story that will make you smile 29 Nov 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What a wonderful book! I'm not sure I'll find the right words to express my feelings toward this wonderful novel. I have to say that I was in a sad need of lightness when I picked this book up. I had just finished a pretty depressing books (or it's just me being too sensitive lol). When Harry Met Molly was just exactly what I needed. This is the 1st book in the Impossible Bachelors series. If you're like me, after reading the blurb you'll be wondering...What the heck is this about?? Ok maybe I'm just too blond.

The prologue sets the mood for the whole book. Poor 13 years old Molly is infatuated with her sister's fiancé and decides to 'subtly' declare her love in a poem at a Christmas party. She also, at the same time, reveals that she saw her sister kiss her fiancé's brother, Harry. Sadly, this ends very badly for her and Harry. The consequences of that poem will completely change their lives. I really loved that Molly and Harry have been enemies for years. They make pranks on each other at each family reunion. This was very cute and made me smile a lot.

The Prince regent decides one drunken night, that Harry and 3 other Impossible bachelors should marry. He then comes up with a competition, where the winner will win the right to be FREE from matching mamas and families nagging him to marry for a year. The winner will be able to stay a bachelor. One of the looser will have to marry a woman chosen for him. As you can see, you can't take this story too seriously. This year's competition is simple. The man with the 'Most Delectable Companion', aka best mistress will win.

Molly ends up being Harry's false mistress for a week after his old mistress abandoned him on the way to the competition. I'm not telling you how it happened but it's very funny.

stupid actually. This is one of the worst romance books I have ever read. I don't even know where it is pitching itself, it's so bad, forced and unfunny.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic and original 16 May 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
one of the funniest, most original romances i have ever read. You fall in love with the characters and their chemistry. It was great they they already knew each other before they began to see each other differently - not another love at first sight book! A must read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well written but un-engaging romance 11 Feb 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady Molly Fairbanks and Lord Harry Traemore have known each other since they were children - and have been enemies for just as long.

When Harry finds himself part of a wager to find the most delectable companion he's sure to win. But when his current mistress runs off his only option is to get Molly to stand in as his false mistress. But with more at stake than the wager - who will win in this battle of the heart?

I picked this book in spite of its gimmicky title and I should have paid more attention to that because that cutesy, silliness is a key feature of this book. It's very light and has a very unbelievable plot. That's not a problem if you're happy to suspend belief but if you're looking for historical accuracy then you'll be disappointed by this book.

The characters went from displaying some depth of emotion to being ridiculously flighty within the space of a sentence which frustrated me no end. I'm all for both seriousness and fun in a novel but it bounced around too much for my liking. There was also the inconsistencies and fickleness of any emotions from the characters, especially Molly. In one breath she liked Harry, then she despised him, then she loved him, then she could never love a man like him etc etc. It grew tiring quite quickly and made me unmoved by her as a character and of her 'love' for Harry.

Harry was also a little bit all over the place. He was the second son of a duke but also a rake. Fair enough but surely his gentlemanly instincts wouldn't have let Molly get into many of the situations that presented themselves during the house party.

I finished the book and was interested in where the story would go but I was ultimately disappointed. It was readable and I enjoyed the writing but the story and characters weren't engaging and as a result I don't feel I can recommend the book. 2 stars.

This is the first book in the Impossible Bachelors series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harry and Molly 18 April 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's nice to read that romance can start early in ones life and still people can be blind to it. I wonder if this can happen in real life.
This Impossible Bachelor book is one of the best, but then again, so are the other 3.
