    • Well, that was unfortunate. The story has potential, and I've liked Kate Noble's books in the past. Somehow, this was all squandered by what I can only assume was a total breakdown in the copy-editing room. Holy fucking shit. At moments, I felt like I was reading one of the self-pubbed new adults I love to loathe. This is not okay, Berkley Sensation. I spent $5.99 on this book. Edit your fucking books. Edit them correctly. Edit them NOW. I knew something funky was up when I noticed misplaced com [...]


    • I love Kate Noble but not this book. It just never grabbed me and sucked me in like her others. I found Sarah very off-putting and Jack's attraction to her was baffling. The sexual and romantic tension so well done in her other books was virtually non-existent in this book. Lots of characters from previous books were present, probably too much so. They overwhelmed the romance that I hoped to find. The suspense-spy-action scenes were hard to follow and not interesting. I found myself skimming muc [...]



    • I'm new to this author and didn't realize If I fall was the fourth book in a series. It was on offer on and I bought it. I wonder if reading the other three books would have meant I'd stick with this book. I'm not sure, as the plot seems self-contained. Maybe the affection for previous characters would have compelled me to keep going on.As it is, I couldn't stomach past 30%. Nothing in this story makes sense. I understand how she became a "viper" (she's not really, but she's a queen bee). I cou [...]


    • If I Fall is a regency romance with a bit of mystery and espionage thrown in! Written by Kate Noble, who also writes under the name Kate Rorick for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (If you haven't watch these, you need to!)Humiliated, Sarah Forrester tries to face the Ton with as much dignity as she can, but it’s just too much. She knows what the gossips are saying. Since Jason, The Duke of Rayne, broke off their engagement she's been known as “The Girl Who Lost the Duke”. But as quickly as they [...]


    • I'm not sure how this book ended up on my holds shelf at the library, but it did, so here I am reading it.Turns out this is #4 in a series. I'm thinking it would have been better to start with #1. And, seeing as how I'm finding myself completely charmed by this book, I do believe I'm going to go find #1!Sarah and Jack are childhood friends who have lost touch for the past six (or was it nine? doesn't matter) years - (he's been on board ship as Lieutenant for the Navy during the Napoleonic war) a [...]


    • My time ran out and the book was zapped back to digital library land last night. Boring, boring boring, but I really was lost when the hero had to face a bunch of men waiting around the heroine's front door and they were referred to as the the peanut gallery.Life's too short, moving on.


    • Despite some excellent writing, the characters felt very one-dimensional. There was a lot of potential for emotional depth that was never realized. I just wish I had liked this more, since I enjoyed many of her previous books.


    • Probably my least favorite of this Blue Raven series- but still such a damn good read that even it being the last still makes it better than a lot of other romances out there. Sarah was just a little too boring for me, her sisters were always so much more interesting. But her romance with a childhood friend turned Naval hero is my kind of catnip and I made sure to lap this story straight up!The entire series is full of wit and humor. Our heroines are sensual and powerful- smart, no-nonsense wome [...]


    • I wish I had read these in order! After reading of Sarah's heartbreak and misery (leading to her reinventing herself as The Golden Lady), I don't want to read about Jason's HEA (since he is the one who broke her heart).Maybe someday, I'll want to read his story, if only to make sure he isn't quite the blackguard I make him out to be.Besides, I have a thing about finishing series and I want to read Philippa's, Byrne's, and Bridget's stories, too.


    • Good but not amazing. While I'm happy they followed the story of Sarah. I also really liked that they had a lot more interaction with the previous sets of couples and characters in this as well. The romance was a little less enthralling than some of the others but still the story was pretty good.


    • I was sure that I read this, but I couldn't remember a thing about it. So I pucked it up and was about 20% of the way in before I could be sure that I did read it a few years ago. I still don't remember what happened, but I figure if it wasn't worth remembering it's not worth rereading. On the flip side, I don't remember hating it I'm leaning towards slight sneer "meh?"


    • To begin this review we must first set the scene and take a step back to the final chapters of the previous book Follow My Lead. At the close of that story, the hero Jason finally understands his true feelings for the heroine Winifred, running off from a ball to declare his love. Sadly, the ball he abruptly left is his own engagement ball, and at the same time that Jason and Winifred are about to start their lives together there is one person that was left with her own heart breaking: Sarah Forr [...]


    • On the evening of her betrothal party, the duke Miss Sarah Forrester is set to marry, confesses that he is in love with another. Sarah is instantly named "the girl who lost a Duke" in society and prepares to become a complete social outcast. However, one of the leading ladies in society advises her to reinvent herself, and soon Sarah is known as "The Golden Lady", the glittering, carefree toast of the town. Not everyone is as happy about her drastic changes, though.Sarah's childhood friend Lieut [...]


    • A sweet friends-to-lovers story mixed with a bit of espionage adventure. Noble does a great job, as always, with building nuances into her character's feelings and actions, her espionage plot is above average (if still not too complicated nor too difficult to guess the secrets and mysteries) and embedded into Real! Life! History!, and she makes smart decisions in writing a masked caper: namely, the character trying to pull off an assumed identity knows it's ridiculous and he's doing it for the w [...]


    • Imagine if Sally met Harry when he was 13. And they were friends. And then there was some time apart. And then they re-met as adults. This is pretty much the plot of If I Fall. What I loved most about this book is how both Sarah and Jack learned, challenged, fought against and negotiated their beliefs about change and expectation. Both had certain expectations from the other based on their childhood friendship and much of the conflict was centered around how people change to a certain extent. T [...]


    • Well, not every Kate Noble book can be a gem. After the sparkling excellence of Follow My Lead, If I Fall was a disappointment. While the two leads, Sarah Forrester and Jackson Fletcher, admittedly struggle to discover who they are, Noble didn't seem to know who they were either. Sarah in particular is a cypher, and there's very little I can find to say about her other than that she was nice (mostly?). Winn from Follow My Lead makes her look more like a straw doll than a Golden Lady. Jackson's f [...]


    • Regency Historical romance (set in 1823, so slightly outside the Regency time period). I found a romance novel that I actually enjoyed. The historical romances I had read in the past have very little historical detail (the history is the frosting on the cake so to speak) and this was an exception. There is enough happening in the story so it is not just about the heroine and hero. After her engagement to a Duke ends, Lady Sarah Forrester, remakes herself into society's Golden Lady--beautiful, wi [...]


    • This is the 4th book but yes it could also be read as a stand alone. The first 2 takes place a few years before book 3 and this one, and book 3, well in that one we see Jason fall in love and that is how this book starts. Jason leaves Sarah on their engagement party. If I had not read book 3 I am sure I would have been very unhappy with him, but he was in love, and Sarah, wanted stability only.The Sarah that used to be is transformed after The Event into the darling of the Ton, cos else she is j [...]

    • 3.5 stars edging toward 4 starsAfter a few days, I am striking off the 4 stars and awarded 3 stars for this book.My first read by the author, Kate Noble. I usually stay away from historical romance with thriller/spy twist, but this one was quite enjoyable.Didn't know that it is actually part of a series of The Blue Raven which actually refers to a spy named 'Blue Raven'.Anyway, this is one of the reason I love this book. The hero and heroine is actually best friends since childhood, and to watch [...]


    • A lot of historical romances favor the loving side of the English ton. Where these heroines are receiving gifts and courtships. You can hear the music playing at the ball and crowd that is there in her admiration.Kate Noble shows us the dramatic effect that it can have to be on the wrong side of the English ton. The scandalous side. The unforgiving gossips. And not because of the damage done by physical love but an Event that envelops a family and damages other sisters' efforts in entering their [...]


    • This is really a 2 and 1/2 stars book, but I'm feeling generous today. I rather enjoyed Noble's first Blue Raven book, Revealed, but the second and third were just too tedious for words (I actually didn't make it through the third). So, my expectations for this one were low.Which, I guess, is a good thing, since this one was slightly better than its predecessor. The story of the Blue Raven "returning" was the best part of the whole thing. The character of Jack was interesting, but I didn't think [...]


    • Well, this is a first for me. I was enjoying this book, with a good bit of eye-rolling, when Real Life intervened. I had to stop reading this book for almost a week. Alas!! that break was FATAL for my enjoyment of the story. As Real Life Stuff receded, I tried getting back into the book, and JustCouldn'tDo It. The story and tone that had so enchanted me at the beginning now seemed silly and forced.So, the prose is good, the plot is silly, the characters are a bit cardboard (or they are soooo you [...]


    • Another enchanting tale in the Blue Raven series. Sarah Forrester, the jilted fiance of the hero from Follow My Lead, has transformed herself into the Golden Lady. Now much sought after and quite the life of the party, Sarah is determined not to be pitied. Jackson Fletcher, Lieutenant Jackson Fletcher, that is, is a sailor without a ship and the Forresters have happily invited him to stay until new orders come in for him. Sort of a friends to lovers theme. They knew each other when Jackson spent [...]


    • I picked up this book in the mood for the literary like, heavily romantic style of story which I've come to enjoy from Kate Noble. I was disappointed. Sadly, though I really like Sarah in the previous book, I really did not enjoy her in this one. I understand the need to re-write Sarah to make her character fit with the story, but she was so different, it didn't work for me at all. Also, Jack's connection to her was very flimsy from my point of view and I never felt anything akin to love between [...]


    • It kind of felt like I was reading 2 different novels smushed into one. Book 1 is the historical romance between newly-reunited childhood friends, which takes a running leap towards pure ridiculousness when the male protagonist essentially starts dressing up as whatever counts as a superhero in those times and ends up fighting crime by accident. Book 2 is the lesbian spy thriller. (Guess which one I was more into.) On the other hand, I dove into this without realizing that it's actually part of [...]


    • This was alright. While I didn't feel myself particularly endeared to either hero or heroine, they were serviceable characters. It's hard to do bitter and brittle characters well. Sarah Forrester was pretty cool as a character in Follow My Lead, but she didn't do much for me here. What was with all the "looked him/her dead in the eye" business? I swear within 3-4 pgs I saw that expression used multiple times. Even more annoying was the villain's monologue-ing. I mean, they even goes so far as to [...]


    • I haven't read any of the previous both. So I left some of the background that I might have. But I still found the book. Triple. It took the plot a good 25% of the way through the book to really get rolling. But I did enjoy it very much. I found the characters very relatable and interesting. I really liked sera much better after she met the Blu-ray that. I guess that is what Jackson was looking for. Regardless, I thought the book was very well written and I also enjoyed the plot. I have to admit [...]


    • Kate Noble was recommended to me by a friend on Twitter. The library gave me a choice between Compromised and If I Fall. Normally, I like to read things in order, but, I must admit, I didn't think I was going to like Noble's books so I just picked the plot I thought I'd like better. I still don't care for 'spy' plots, but my personal preference aside, I thought it was a decent read. I don't think I fully understand at what point the hero & heroine fell in love, but I wasn't really in a 'thin [...]
