I think when you *really* like a book, it's difficult to write a review about the book without gushing.
For example, I'd sound really silly saying, "OMG, Mina! She's soooo cool. She, like, is made of pure nerve! And when she

or when she

How fangirl would I sound if I said this, "I seriously do have a girl crush on Yasmeen. I want to go buy cigarillos and smoke and find some flight goggles and even though she

], even then, she makes me squee!".
The Iron Duke was so great though. There were many times that I wanted to read aloud and I bored my husband to tears recaping about every thing that lit me up. It's a great mix of adventure, political intrigue and mystery with a side of steamy romance.
