Bridgerton

From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix.

In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable.

Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen.

Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar.

The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty: love ignores every rule...

This novel includes the 2nd epilogue, a peek at the story after the story.

Enjoyable4 star

So I had no idea this was a book series. All my friends were going crazy for the Netflix series, so I decided to watch it. And then found out about the books after I’d finished it. I hate that the show spoiled some things for me. (Obviously I will not mention the spoilers). However that being said I did enjoy this book immensely. I smiled frequently and sometimes laughed through a fair amount of it. It was an easy ready, and written quite nicely. The few steamy scenes were not as detailed as I am used to in other novels and honestly it was refreshing. I can’t wait to read the next. The reason I only gave it 4 stars was for the scene with the consent issue. I knew it was coming, I was unhappy with it in the show and I was unhappy with it in the book. At the end of the day consent is not something to make light of, and it can be given or taken by all genders. It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth. I’m going to read the next book and hopefully find that the author redeems themselves. 45

Clever, Exciting, & Can’t Put Down!4 star

I wanted to start this reading because of how trending the Netflix show was getting, and I am SO glad I decided to read this first. The story is so easy to follow along, the writing is clever and the dynamics between the characters is interesting. There are a few -steamy/romantic- scenes and SEVERAL beautifully written expressions of love. It’s somewhat like Jane Austen meets 50SoG (less detailed). For this to be a regency era novel type, I was pleased for it to be an easy-read and understand the events. Can’t wait to read the rest! My only “critique” would be that I didn’t prefer a few intense scenes, but understand why they were there for the plot. I’d give 4.5/5 rating if I could! 45

It’s been 4-5 years since I stopped reading because I couldn’t find a book that would trap me like this one did I love it! I look forward to read all of them. My favorite book ever! 55
