Review: It Takes Two to Tumble (Seducing the Sedgwicks #1) by Cat Sebastian

It Takes Two to TumbleThis was a fantastic look at how two people who might otherwise have nothing in common develop a natural and loving relationship. At times, Ben came across as a little too perfect. Luckily, Phillip balanced this out by becoming a sympathetic character without losing any of the thorny character traits that intrigued me. 

As a bonus, the children were also well-developed characters who were allowed to shine in a genre where children are generally shuffled out of the way in the care of background tutors and nannies. At times, they were a little TOO precocious, but a certain link between Phillip and one of his sons ended up being a great turning point for many of the plot threads in this book.

This novel also included an interesting exploration of the many ways a person can be religious, along with where homosexuality might fit in biblical interpretation. This is not an inspirational romance. Ben, the vicar character, reconciles his faith with his future in a way that is never preachy or attempts to beat the reader over the head with discussions of Christianity.

I look forward to reading more about the intriguing Sedgwick family, especially due to the tantalizing hints dropped about Ben’s brothers throughout this book. I hope Ben and Phillip continue to be visible secondary characters because their journey is far from over. I also hope that the publicity department gets their hands off of the book titles of this series, because the ridiculousness of this title does not match the quality of this romance.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
