Currently reading Chasing Cassandra (contains fatphobia where the leading lady is directly harped on about her weight, and sexual assault) It’s the sixth one in the Ravenels books by Lisa Kleypas.
Without giving too much away, one thing I kind of appreciated about some of the books is that it was established in the first book that the Ravenel men have a temper and they’re not good at controlling it (aka they’re privileged enough that there’s a bunch of hand wavey “boys will be boys” attitudes in their pasts so no one ever called them on their bullshit) so that was a way to directly lean into the “the male lead is kind of a jackass with anger issues” trope. But then there’s several female Ravenel relations who are paired with men with Some Dark Thing in His Past so Also as the books go on the Ravenel leading men from the previous books are like “Yeah that whole ‘I can’t control my temper’ thing is self-centered nonsense”.
Anyway, it amused me greatly that the word “adoption” was said in the book within pages after I made my post above. Male lead “No, I couldn’t possibly!” so obviously this is a thing that will happen now.
