I really do love a grumpy guy and the woman who brings a new light to his life story. Set historically, in a series I’ve adored, in a forced proximity setting, by an author who I love reading and I happily grabbed at the chance to read an advance copy of Impossible.
Max is home from war and suffering. He lost two family members while he was fighting, and he’s haunted by things he saw, did, and survived. Ada is sent to his estate to assess and figure out how it can best be managed to the betterment of his tenants and himself. Max isn’t company ready and is growly but Ada sticks around and charms him against his will.
I’m a long time fan of Darcy Burke’s and I really feel like she’s writing better than ever. Her tales are always wonderfully enjoyable and Ada and Max’s story is wonderful. Also, as a reader, I’m really enjoying the hotter direction she’s taking in writing love scenes ❤️ The character growth here is terrific and you’re so really rooting for this couple by the end.
I’m looking forward to all the titles that follow in the Phoneix Club series, and I’m especially looking forward to reading Lucien and Evelyn’s story in the future 😍

Welcome to the Phoenix Club, where London’s most audacious, disreputable, and intriguing ladies and gentlemen find scandal, redemption, and second chances.
Ada Treadway has been in love before, and it brought nothing but heartache. Still, she retains her cheerful optimism and is fiercely protective of the independence and respect she’s earned as bookkeeper of the Phoenix Club. When the owner enlists her help to organize his friend’s estate ledgers, she’s eager to prove her expertise and her worth. But his friend turns out to be a disagreeable, unpleasant beast, and Ada works to find the warm-hearted gentleman she’s sure lurks beneath.
Maximillian Hunt, Marquess of Warfield doesn’t care if he lives to see tomorrow, and he certainly doesn’t want to recall yesterday. The arrival of the meddlesome and effusively positive woman who will put his accounts in order not only reminds him of the past he’s desperate to forget, she sparks something within him he thought dead. Tempted by a future he never imagined, he must do the impossible: convince her that he’s worth risking her heart a second time.
