Earls Just Want to Have Fun by Shana Galen is the first book in the Covent Garden Cubs series and I was blown away! This book has all the things I LOVE about historical romance! We have a street-smart heroine and a stickler-for-propriety Earl and what do we get? An explosive romance and a fun read!
What I liked:
- This story is sort of like Pygmalion – where the rich hero trains the uneducated heroine to be a lady. I thought this was going to be the usual Pygmalion story but I was wrong!
- This brings me to the next thing that I liked: THE HEROINE Marlowe. I loved her strength and her snarky attitude towards the Earl. I also liked how she was taken cared of by the other Covent Garden Cubs. Because – the slums, and the dangerous men out to get all the lovely young ladies in Seven Dials!
- I also liked Maxwell, Lord Dane. Despite him being the snooty lord, he turned out to be a sensitive hero, that showed that he really loved Marlowe. I was already dreading his attitude when he was presented to us in the first few chapters because of his snootiness.
What I did not like:
Possibly NOTHING! I really enjoyed this book and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!

It looks like quite a fun read, I'm adding it to my list, thanks ! The title had already caught my eye and filled my head with that Cyndi Lauper song, lol 😉
That was why I picked the book up! Love that Cyndi Lauper song!
I had mixed feelings about this, and about Marlowe. She wasn't so endearing to me. I've gotten picky with my HR heroes and heroines from reading so much from the genre!
