Jo Goodman (Author), Virginia Leishman (Narrator). This is the second time reading Let me Be the One it is even better the second time around.

Jo Goodman (Author), Virginia Leishman (Narrator). Book 1 of 4 in the Compass Club Series. A well written intelligent HR with well developed characters and a well plotted story. This story is not rushed (some may say it's a bit boring) but I loved reading every word.

Written by Jo Goodman. Narrated by Virginia Leishman. USA Today best-selling author Jo Goodman begins a delightful new quartet of Regency romances with Let Me Be the One. The four gentlemen of the compass club-North, South, East and West-are all unwed. Now North has fallen for the charms of Libby Penrose, an intelligent beauty with a strong determination to remain unattached. When North awakens feelings deep within Libby, whirlwind events lead to their marriage. Yet a dark secret threatens to tear their newfound happiness apart.

Virginia Leishman (Narrator). Jo Goodman is still a great writer in my eyes and I usually love her characters. Elizabeth was too much of a tragedy queen for me to relate to her. This book is the first book in the series The Compass Club, featuring 4 men with titles conveniently fit into a small compass: East, West, North and South. The first book of the series has Lord Northam, aka North as the hero and Elizabeth Penrose as his love interest. I thought the idea of 4 noble men with such said titles befriending each other and liking each other too much of a This is the first Jo Goodman character that I disliked.

Jo Goodman is a great author and deserves to have all of her books on the shelf!This book is the first in a quartet about four boyhood friends known as the "Compass Club. It is set in England in 1818. In this tale, we learn about Northam, aka, North. com User, 17 years ago. Let Me Be The One is a wonderful, romantic, very steamy book, the first in a set of 4. Lord Northam is a very strong, virile leading man, and Elizabeth is smart, witty and strong woman. Together they make an unbeatable pair, as Lord and Lady Batteman find out. I can't wait for South, East and West's stories.

It's better than OK but you have to know my rating system; 5 is for Jane Austin. I have never given a 5 to anyone but her. Most of Georgette Heyer's books come close; as close as 4.75. So 4 is a high mark for an author other than those two. The two main characters were well-drawn; their interactions and dialogue were sharp and witty; the plot was interesting and evolved credibly without giving itself away; the sting at the end was great. I love revenge and I love stings. I liked it enough to buy the other 3 books in the series. I hope she can sustain this level of story telling.

Four young men form a school boy bond, calling themselves the Compass Club. Although a bit contrived each young man had a compass direction associated with their family name or title. The main plot takes place when they are in their early thirties and trying to avoid matrimony as long as possible. Lord Northam (North) meets an intriguing young woman (Lady Elizabeth) while working undercover for the British government, specifically under the direction of his former commanding officer. Someone infamously known as the "Gentleman Thief" continues to plague the ton over a number of years stealing jewelry and small heirlooms without leaving a clue as to modus operandi, and North is the latest of many charged with putting an end to it. The government's concern is not due to lost baubles no matter how precious, but rather with the owner's private papers containing sensitive political information, that are also missing, Most of the characters are finely drawn, very human, both heroes and villains, male and female, but there was an unlikely number of strong females counted among the cast of characters for the regency era. Multiple storylines are filled with suspenseful twists and turns that keep readers guessing along with North and his friends, and the novel is peppered with subtle humor and includes several graphic love scenes which may or may not be to your taste. I would not recommend it for younger readers or those who prefer "sweet" love stories. Some questionable word selections along with a few other writing errors suggest a need for more stringent editing. Although I am far from being a fan of graphic sexuality in literature, I must admit that the love scenes in this book, were well placed, supported the plot and formation of the relationship between the lead characters and shouldn't be overly offensive to mature readers.

The pace is languid, which nearly drove me to madness. There are far too many love scenes since the story is told in 3rd person so I watched them like a movie rather than becoming the character (either). But my complaints end there. The wording is absolutely luscious. The characters are deep and I enjoyed seeing each other from the other's perspective. It adds to the depth of growing love between the two heroes. I love how our heroine is thoroughly a woman and yet embraces all of her talents, demanding the Compass Club do the same. There is some mystery hidden here, but it lays there... ready to be uncovered layer by layer. Like all the clothes... I did mention there's plenty of adult scenes in detail, but they're not impossible to skip over for the self-editing reader. I won't be able to resist more in this series. I've met the other fellows and I have to know how their lives proceed! I want to hang out with these people. So, I'm in.

I read all 4 over the last week and today downloaded the Thorne Brothers Trilogy. Jo Goodman's writing is every bit as good as the reviews say. Witty, often laugh out loud dialog, great plotting, and in the cases of South and West's stories I thought unusual and a bit daring. I enjoyed them very much. And it's true, you can read them out of order because the stories happen simultaneously but there is a subtle order so start with book 1 and follow in order. Buy them as a bundle so you don't need to stop!

Which did I like best? Hard to say. Maybe West (book 4). But I would not have missed a any of them especially read as awhole. One of my favorite series, up there with Lisa Kleypas' Wall Flowers series and Elisa Braden's Rescued From Ruin series.

Lord Northam is not ready to marry and give his mother grandchildren. Lady Elizabeth, at 26, never plans to marry (and she has a limp!). Then they meet. Then what about the jewel thief and the blackmailer of the "ton" and estrangement from family and possible spies. All of this is loaded into a well written and suspenseful bit of detective novel set in the late 1700s England. Add in angst and romance and well-formed characters and have a fine time figuring it all out through to the end. My first Jo Goodman read -- and not my last.

Jo Goodman never ceases to amaze and entertain me with her writing! North(H-Earl) has a mother who wants grandchildren, however he has no desire to marry. He attends a house party with his friends East, South and West where he meets Elizabeth(h) and falls in love with her. It takes him time to realize it and her time to fall in love. Meantime she has many personal issues to deal with that will need his help to get her extrication. He also has a job to complete. Pacing is excellent, and all the intertwining threads of lying, stealing, and duplicity add layers of trouble that need dealt with. Really great book!

This is the second time reading Let me Be the One it is even better the second time around. A well written intelligent HR with well developed characters and a well plotted story. This story is not rushed (some may say it's a bit boring) but I loved reading every word. I agree with all the 5 star reviews this is a truly topnotch series. I have read all four in the Compass Club Series and I recommend them all .The last is a bit dark but still a superior read. If only a few HR's of this quality were written a year I would be a happy reader but for now I have to settle for rereads.
