MM Book Rec - Society Of Gentlemen

SOCIETY OF GENTLEMEN SERIES - KJ CHARLES

So, after reading all of the Charm Of Magpie Series I basically fell in love with @kjcharleswriter (It’s alright, she knows.)  So naturally my next step was to devourer her other series Society Of Gentlemen, of which there are four books:

The Ruin Of Gabriel Ashleigh (Ash and Francis) (Short Story)

A Fashionable Indulgence (Harry and Julius)

A Seditious Affair (Dom and Silus)

A Gentleman’s Position (Richard and Cyprian)

This London based series centres around Richard and his like-minded friends in the early-ish 1800s, as they find love and face a number of social and political struggles along the way.  It is one continuous story, and each book focuses on each couple getting together.

They are exquisitely written, with fantastic attention paid to historical accuracy, especially in A Seditious Affair where several real-life events are incorporated into the narrative.  The characters are all so well developed and completely loveable (even Silas “FIGHT ME” Mason lol) that you don’t want to leave them behind when the books are done.  As with all KJ’s books, there is also a good representation of POC and even Trans characters as well, which I always appreciate. 

The plots are all very varied and keep you on your toes (and your heart in your mouth too!)  There are themes of PTSD, BDSM, as well as the ever present threat of the hangman’s noose if any of them get caught, but a lot of fluffy feels to keep you smiling as well.  Oh, and they all have that ever important HEA :)

These books are masterful and I promise you’ll love them, so get reading!!

(NB: The aesthetic is by me, though I own none of the images. Featuring Douglas Booth as Ash, Jonny Lee Miller as Francis, Dominic Cooper as Harry, Charlie Hunnum as Julius, Michael Fassbender as Dom, Rupert Graves as Silas, Rupert Penry-Jones as Richard and Simon Woods as Cyprian.
