Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Series: Bridgerton #9 / Rokesby #1

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This book was exactly what I thought it would be! Funny, charming, passionate, sweet and an all round fantastic read! I loved Billie and George together, their snippy bickering becoming playful once they start to really notice the other person. They have wonderful chemistry that you can feel building, and once they get together.. look out!

When I realized this book takes place before all the other Bridgerton books, it added a nice little surprise of learning how the mallet if death got its name! Or at least I like to think it was how (I haven't read the other Bridgerton stories in a while so perhaps the next generation called it that for a different reason instead of the name being handed down so-to-speak.) Regardless, it's fun to read about the generation that came before the Bridgertons that I love.

The secondary characters were great! I hope all the Rokesby boys get their own story. As always with Julia Quinn, I look forward to her next release!


The Blurb:

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...
This is not one of those times.
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.
Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...
Or not.
There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either.
But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...
Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without...
