Review of A Gentleman's Agreement
J. Roman's A Gentleman's Agreement is one of the most romantic, historical, M/M books I've read in a long time! I loved the premise of a man's brother hatching a plan to set him up with one of his brother's best friends--from the grave! The holiday atmosphere is initially very somber since Thomas' former lover (who married his sister!) and he have to spend it together after the death of his brother, Edmund. Edmund's plan to have his friend Henry court his brother, though, and the courtship is actually that--heated glances, stolen kisses, holding hands in the winter weather...They don't rush into their physical relationship, and they truly get to know one another. I love the unexpected plot twist at the end as well as the personality of Henry's sister. I highly recommend this sweet holiday romance!
