The romance with the most feels

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Oh god did this book ever give me the feels. Up and down, up and down! This book was stressful on my feels in a REALLY good way. I could really empathise with Monty throughout the entire story. I think that's why anytime he put his foot in his mouth or dug his hole a little deeper, especially with Percy, that I would get sent on an emotional roller coaster ride and have to put the book down for a few minutes. And Monty spends a LOT of time in this book either putting his foot in his mouth or digging himself a hole.So this is definitely a book of many feels, happy, sad, concerned, thrilled, annoyed, angry and anxious. I enjoyed every minute of it.
