The second book in the Bridgerton series follows oldest brother Anthony, who is willing to marry but has vowed never to fall in love. This proves difficult when he meets the unconventional Kate! Anthony seems to be a favourite Bridgerton amongst my peers but he’s not getting my vote. ( )

No excuses! I enjoyed reading (listening, really) about the Bridgertons. And I had no idea when I started that I was going to read about "the" Bridgertons. I did not connect that this was the source for the series that has become the big 'steamy regency' hit on the teev, because I am truly out of it in the television realm. Suggested to me by Audible, I guess because I love Heyer, I thought, oh why not? I can return it if I don't like it. But I did. The family of eight, despite the fact that all the men are tall and handsome with thick chestnut hair etcetera and the girls are unusual in not only good looks (albeit unfashionable chestnut hair) but are smart and funny, are engaging. I laughed a lot while listening. And the steamy bits are weirdly tasteful and often very funny and given the world we presently live in, rather sweet unless you are a hopeless prude. I will surely watch the program eventually but not until I have run through the series as books. Most emphatically entertaining, not lit! ***1/2 ( )

Anthony Bridgerton is determined never to fall in love. He's content to find a suitable wife and, as the first-born son, do his duty to carry on the family line, but love is out of the question. This decision has everything to do with the fact that he's convinced he'll die before he sees 40, since his dad died young. From a bee sting. Then there's Kate, who's the older and less beautiful (half-)sister in a not-wealthy family, and who's convinced she'll never marry because 1) she's not as interesting as her sister and so won't be courted by anyone, and 2) she's just not that interested. These two, of course, fall in love despite best efforts on both sides.

A good-enough romance, but I had a hard time keeping interested, to be honest. It seems a bit derivative after the first in the series. I may abandon reading the series and just try to watch the show at some point. ( )

I liked it. Anthony is a complete ass, but outside of that, the book was pretty good. Mary is my favorite character and what all step-parents should aspire to be. I don't understand why Kate doesn't call her mom. If any step-parent deserves that title, Mary does. I liked Kate too. She is strong and sassy and she doesn't back down even when scared. Anthony though had a few redeeming qualities but nowhere near enough to outweigh his bad ones. I just really didn't like him at all. ( )

This book was really good. I liked Kate and Anthony's story. It got me into historical fiction/romance. I liked the ending. This book was funny and emotional. ( )
