Because of Miss Bridgerton
Because of Miss Bridgerton | Julia Quinn
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...

George Rokesby and Billie Bridgerton have known each other all their lives and can‘t stand each other. Naturally it must be love. I actually enjoyed this one quite a bit.

It was nice enough this morning that I could sit outside and read while waiting for my sister to come pick me up for my nieces orchestra contest. Ok, it was only 40 degrees but the sun was shining, which makes a huge difference.

A very fun read, this is the first book by Julia Quinn that I've read and I loved it. It was fun and sassy with plenty of adventure. I will most definitely be looking for more books by Ms. Quinn.

I‘ve not read this one but I‘ve read others by the author and have enjoyed them. Maybe someday I‘ll get to this one!

Ok so this is my first romance book on audio because I always thought it would be kind of weird. I‘m not a huge romance reader, but not because I have anything against them, I just haven‘t found anything to seriously hook me. However....I really am liking this on audiobook so far!!! I may have found just the thing to listen to to encourage me to work out at the gym more!

Sometimes, it‘s nice to sink into some #historicalromance 😍❤️ #lightreading #love #juliaquinn #rokesby

theresidentromantic I love her other series! I've never read the bridgertons, but she is such a sweet author, her books are so sincere. Enjoy!! 1y
Kallik93 @theresidentromantic thank you!!! Yeah this is the first in her Rokesby series which I think stems from the Bridgertons series which I haven‘t read yet. BUT! I went to a used bookstore this morning and snagged the first three, so soon they will be under my belt 😁😁😁👌🏻I think my favorite historical romance series is the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. 1y
theresidentromantic I couldn't get into Lisa Kleypas! I tried, but something about her writing just doesn't sit with me. I adore the McKenzies by Jennifer Ashley ❤ 1y

Heading out on the first work trip of the year. 😭 At least I‘ve got these beauties to keep me company on the flight to Paris. Two more packed and a stocked kindle app for the week.

I‘d rather be home reading with the littles nearby. But I‘ll get started on my #litsyclassics challenge at least with Agnes Grey.

A very enjoyable read. Witty and fun, and just the distraction I needed. Julia Quinn's proving to be a new favourite romance author. #romance #summerreads

Seven hours read for the #24in48 readathon. Most of those hours have been spent listening to the audiobook of "Because of Miss Bridgerton" by Julia Quinn. It's not my favorite of Quinn's books but it is still entertaining and an easy listen.

Same model?

mjdowens Hhmmm...possibly 2y
Jokila @mjdowens it's hard to tell on the Quinn cover (it's sparkly metallic and so not as crisp) but she looks a little like Jennifer Lawrence so I was like huh what are the odds TWO romance cover models look like J Law? 2y
mjdowens LOL. Now I see what you mean. It kind of does look like her. 2y
AshHisson Heck, it looks like the same photo shoot and they just changed the colour of the dress in one. 2y

No one does witty banter quite as well as @JuliaQuinn . It was a Bridgerton novel that first made me into a romance reader (Romancing Mister Bridgerton, if you're curious), and all these years later, they are still among my favorite characters to visit. I loved meeting George and Billie and watching their story unfold! #romantsy #romance

I have read a lot of unenthusiastic reviews of this one but I was delighted from page one. There was the perfect blend of Julia Quinn humor and a sweet romance where two people who known each other their entire lives finally truly see each other. Add in the mallet of death and you have a Saturday afternoon happily spent. #romantsy

nitalibrarian I liked this one too. Looking forward to The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband. 3y
Katerina I'll have to keep that in mind. I like the author. Sadly my library doesn't stock romance novels like that. I guess they think it's not high-quality enough? Who knows... 3y
Jas16 @Katerina if it helps the ebook is currently on sale for $2.99 3y
Katerina @Jas16 Ah, thanks for the heads up! I don't really have an ebook reader, but I can read it on my phone 😀 3y

I don't read a lot of historical romance anymore but when I do I tend to read Julia Quinn. I picked this one up since it was a Goodreads finalist (and I just voted for it!)

I love enemies-to-lovers and this was a sweet read but I could have used more sparks between the two. I'm totally good with slow burn but I wasn't quite sure what truly caused the change of feelings.

Julia Quinn's latest is on sale for $1.99 on Amazon, today only (June 25)! A new entry into the world of the Bridgertons, this prequel is a fun frenemies to lovers historical romance.

The characters were good, but everything just felt too easy. I like that there weren't the typical misunderstandings and unwarranted drama of many romances. However, there needed to be more resistance for them either from events of outside. I wanted the characters to be tested more.

This prequel/spinoff of Quinn‘s Bridgerton series is a compelling frenemies to lovers historical romance. It falls to 1st in Series Syndrome, so there are some plot threads left dangling, but the leads have great banter and the rest of the ensemble has me interested enough to pick up the next book.

3/5 ⭐️ Sweet love story about finding out someone you've known & hated your entire life is an entirely different person than you thought they were. I loved seeing Billie and George discover & fall in love w/each other although it was a little too slow of a burn for my tastes.

2/5⭐️ Disappointing! Neither of the main characters were very likable, and they seemed to be a poor match for each other. I was so excited to find out another Bridgerton book was in the works, but this didn't come close to measuring up to the original series. I hope the next one is much better.

A first read of one of Quinn's Bridgerton romances is always a joy (even if it IS a prequel)! I've reread most of the others and am thrilled to get my hands on the first in this related Rokesby series.
