This book really is superb. It’s my third time reading it (though it’s been 8 or more years since the last time), but it still doesn’t get old.This is the Bridgerton book with the famous Pall Mall (aka Croquet) scene. It really is HILARIOUS! I could not stop laughing and I even knew what was coming!This book is an excellent example of how the enemies to lovers trope should be written. It’s enemies-to-friends-to-lovers, the absolute best kind of trope! I hate it when a couple is enemies, but are overwhelmed by their sexual attraction, until the last ten pages. The relationship between Kate and Anthony perfectly progresses, the story giving each character reasons to hate each other as well as start to respect and like each other. By 50%, they have decided they both respect and like each other and have a whole conversation coming to an understanding. Then they fall in love 😍 it’s flawless.There are some very funny and entertaining scenes in this book that made me laugh out loud! Ms. Quinn wrote two characters who aren’t perfect, but are perfect for each other. They really understand one another and it’s beautiful.There’s two love scenes, wedding night and then a few months later. Plus a bit a heavy petting and kissing scenes.
After watching Bridgertons on Netflix I went ahead and read this book to continue the fun. And yes it was fun! Predictable in many ways, silly, and very fun. I devoured it in about 2 days.I only gave it 3 stars because I have one big concern about a scene in the book. I very much hope they soften this issue if they adapt it for netflix. Anthony and Kate have a very “Jack and Diane from cheers/Jess and Nick from new girl” sort of energy. Which is fun overall and totally fine. However, towards the beginning of the book there is a scene in the office that would fit the definition of sexual assault in my opinion. Especially given the huge power differentials between men and women at the time, age, experience, wealth. She is scared of him in this scene. It isn’t cute or funny. Not romantic, actually extreamly upsetting and not ok. If Netflix doesn’t fix this for the show there will definitely be upset fans.
My favorite! Anthony and Kate argue, they bicker, they banter, they get compromised, honestly what else do you want out of a romance novel? Oh duh, love and they have that too! Anthony is convinced he is going to marry this season because he cannot outlive his father and he is sure of who he will marry, the diamond of the season Kate’s sister Edwina and the only problem standing in his way is Kate herself! Edwina declared to everyone at a public event that she could only marry if her older sister Kate approved which is very much not normal in London Society but Anthony decides to take up the challenge and woo both women one to marry, one to gain approval from. The only issue is he is falling in love with the wrong sister. Kate and Anthony are a delight! They bicker and banter so much and the emotional roller coasters they both go through to find their love story make it my favorite book! I love Kate with all my heart and spotting her and Anthony in later books is so much fun! I want more epilogues of just them two, I want stories of their children, I want more Kate! Go pick this one up, I might even suggest just skipping the first in the series and jumping right in here, it would be worth it really!
I enjoyed Bridgerton on Netflix and decided to read Book 2. I usually do not read romance novels and have since come to learn that they are formulaic. If you enjoy the romance genre, you may like this book. However, I found it entirely too similar to book 1, which was portrayed in the Netflix series. Seriously…it was almost the same storyline; however, Anthony wants to avoid falling in love because of his experience with his father in book 2 and in book 1 (the Netflix Bridgerton Season 1) Simon wants to avoid having children because of his experience with his father. Of course, neither man can resist the female heroine/child bride he originally hated and must ravish her and her heaving bosom after seeing a half inch of her wrist. They must marry. Insert love scene. They fight. They have sex. Repeat. They fall in love, have children, play croquet. That’s Book 1 and Book 2 in a nutshell. Will I watch, Bridgerton season 2? Yes. For the costumes, of course. Will I read Book 3? Nope.
I can’t imagine having such a certainty that your gonna die at a particular age. Poor Anthony actually thinking he could control whether or not he falls in love, because that would make dying so much harder. It’s definitely a crazy notion to get in ur head, especially considering that accidents happen all the time and you can die at anytime. There are no guarantees of how long anybody will live. And I’m glad Anthony was able to learn this in the end; to live each day as if is his last and to make the most of it, to love Kate and live life to the fullest. It just goes to show that if we let our fears control us we keep ourselves from living our best lives.
Lord Bridgerton has decided that it is time to marry. He is therefore looking for a suitable wife, but definitely does not want to fall in love with the selected candidate. The only problem is the sister of his preferred choice. Kate does not deem Anthony a suitable husband for her sister, Edwina, as she suspects that he does not love her sister and he is a really aggravating person who annoys Kate no end. A fun, romantic read with some great moments of comedy and lovely characters.
Having just read “The Duke and I”, and more or less enjoyed it, I ordered and read this one straight away. It’s nothing I haven’t read before.The plot is un-imaginative and at times ludicrous. The lead characters spend half of the book threatening bodily harm on eachother and on many occaissions carrying out those threats. It’s supposed to be funny but it’s childish nonsense (some might say abuse).Anthony was a fairly good character in the first book, but all of that is ripped from him and he becomes a horny teenager who doesn’t know how to keep it in his breeches. Kate could have been a good heroine if I was shown that she was different to all the other ladies and not told so once or twice a page.As with the first book, the dialogue is clunky, there are a few americanisms and a lot of rubbish. But as with the first it is readable, i whizzed through this in an afternoon, time wasting, brain resting drivel.If you are looking for high literature, unforgettable characters and the New Darcy, this is not for you, if you are looking to be vaguely entertained … read on.
I didn’t read the first book because I watched the Netflix series. So bought this one to check if the writer could actually write a good story, and she can but with a particular formula. I have now read number 3 and tired of the formula, so not going to bother with the others because they will probably follow the same pattern which is predictable. I also know that Colin marrys Penelope beause it is is at the end of the second book if you are concentrating!! No competition with Jane Austen because all of her books are very different and the tantalising sexual tension in Austen’s books are probably preferable to many readers than the overt sex scenes in these books.
Oh how I adore a reformed rake and there’s no one more delicious in my book than Anthony Bridgerton, who turned up in the first Bridgerton book defending his sister Daphne and has made a decision at the beginning of this book to marry Kate Sheffield’s sweet and biddable younger sister… The only thing standing in this very eligible bachelor’s way – thanks to his previously well reported wicked ways – is Claudia’s older sister who is not nearly so biddable and is determined to save her sister from the likes of Anthony. Clearly inspired by the Taming of the Shrew this is a wild, witty and also passionate tale of two strong-willed people finding love and a lot more besides. I adored this book and after having hoovered up the whole Bridgerton series, I think this is probably my favourite (although that was a tough choice I can tell you!). I loved the dynamics between these two alpha personalities. And there is an absolutely hilarious game of Pall Mall as the two of them try to cheat each other to a win while the rest of the clan look on. Quite simply unputdownable.
I was hooked from the very beginning! I loved the way this author writes and how she develop the story. What a nice touch the “gossip” society papers gave to this book. It was hilarious. On top of that I loved Kate and Anthony chemistry, romance and cute banter. Love love love ! This book has it all plus a heroine & hero with a witty mind and funny moments that had me laughing out loud. I stayed till earlier hours reading without stopping. So is really good this book and a must read for all fans of a historical romance. ❤️
I didn’t think it could get any better than book 1 but I was so wrong. This is an amazing story, more enthralling than the first book. And now that I have read all of the 8 books, I can say that this is my absolute favourite of the series. Followed by book 3 (Benedict). This is wonderfully romantic, sensual and passionate. I fell in love with Anthony in the first book. He’s such a caring and loving brother but also a wicked rake. And I so love a reformed rake who finds his soulmate and love of his life.Anthony has a fear of bees after his father died of an allergic reaction to a bee sting. Anthony believes the same fate awaits him and he will die young. Therefore he doesn’t want to marry for love. He’s chosen his ideal bride Edwina, a woman he is sure he will never love. However, Edwina’s sister Kate is adamant to prevent this union. Kate and Anthony spend a lot of time together at a house party and play the famous Bridgerton Pall Mall match. They realise that they actually like each other and Kate is falling in love with Anthony but she is willing to step aside for her sister. But a compromising situation forces their hands. Anthony is reluctant to accept his love for Kate and almost loses her. Kate helps him overcome his fear and they find their happiness in the end. It’s beautifully written with witty dialogues, charming characters, a naughty dog and a lot of sensuality, passion and romance. You won’t be able to put the book down. It’s a must read. I just hope that Netflix will do justice to Anthony’s wonderful story.
