From The Cover 1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London s most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry And in all truth, why should he When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better Lady Whistledown s Society Papers, April 1814 My Review Well, wow What a great read I love it when an author can take me from hating the hero in the first chapter to adoring him by the last, and that is exactly what Julia Quinn did with Anthony, eldest of the Bridgerton children After his father s death at age 38, and his uncle s death which also came at an early age, Anthony is certain he too will die young For this reason he has lived his life, forming no attachments to anyone other than his siblings and his mother As he s nearing his 30th birthday, he decides he needs to take a bride and sire an heir But knowing or thinking he knows that he will die young, he has decided to choose a bride he is certain he will never fall in love with as he believes that would make his certain death too painful for himself to endure This is where he drove me nutty If you look up the word martyr in a thesaurus, Anthony Bridgerton would be listed as an alternative word There came a point when I was hoping he would go frolic in a bee infested field of heather Blushes I guess that was rather harsh, but by the end of the book I wanted to bring him home and love him all better.All in all, I enjoyed The Viscount Who Loved Me so much than Daphne s story in The Duke and I which felt one dimensional to me not nearly as deep a read Both the hero, Anthony, and the heroine, Kate Sheffield, were such wonderfully complex characters that I found myself wanting to truly understand why they were as they were to feel what they felt fear, anger, longing thankfully Julia Quinn developed them so fully that I was able to do just that, and connected with them both on a deep level, making me care for them and hoping for the their happily ever after. Another wonderfull story from Julia Quinn and the BridgertonsThis time was Antony s turn and it was equal interesting and pleasant as Daphne s Antony is the older of all the Bridgertons and he has the title of viscount.I will admit that in the first book, i didn t like him very much because he was making Simon and Daphne s life really hard, but i forgive him because he is her older brother and he was just worried about her well beingI m always at your service, my lovely Viscount So, Anthony is a notorious rake He liked to partying and to past his days with different women but the time has come for him to get married as his mother is insisting And this time he is about to agree with her but he had a condition for his future wife He doesn t want her to be lovable What i mean He doesn t have to fall in love with her because he has some fears that came from his father s death So, he is choosing Edwina to be his future wife and the courting is starting But there are some complications with this plan and they have the name of Kate Sheffield.Kate is Edwina s older sister and she despises rakes, and especially Antony Bridgerton She is determined to protect her sister from him, even though that Edwina was preparing all her life to get marry with a wealthy husband as Antony But Kate s plan is about to fail as she is starting to know the viscount and she is charmed by himAntony and Kate are so antagonized of each other at the beginning and that was because they were trying to fight that pull toward each other Kate is a woman that Antony could easily love and he doesn t want this to happen But everything are about to change because of a bee Bahahaha Yep, you heard right, but i cannot tell you about itWill Kate and Antony will manage to overcome their fears and to let themselves to love each other I enjoyed and this book of this wonderfull series and i want to learn about the rest of these family Antony wasn t anything like the society described him He was kind, sweet and caring He loved his family and that is something that i really liked about this book The Bridgertons are very tied family His only flaw was that he was having some unreasonable fears but that was quite charming, especially as he was fighting to resist to his wife and to not develop tender feelings for her But how could that be possible with a woman as Kate Kate was fiesty, generous and so loving She also loved her little family very much and she could do anything for her sister Even though she didn t like Antony from what she had heard about him, she couldn t resist to him when she got to know him I really liked the both of them as a couple They were so good for each otherWell, if you liked HR, the Bridgertons is a series that you should try This was a really great historical with a silly side It s been a long time since I ve read a Julia Quinn novel, but I was dying for a good regency romance and this one really hit the spot Some of the situations were just funny, which I wasn t expecting But it had some really great conflict that kept me invested The hero is determined to marry the Belle of the Ball But it s her annoying, meddling sister who is trying to keep them apart who he can t help be interested in A love hate dynamic The hero can be a bit of a douche in the beginning so that was good And some unexpected humor I d recommend to regency lovers Viscount Anthony Bridgerton feels he s running out of time, thinking he would die young like his father, decided to finally marry and sire an heir before his young death When he picks out the beauty of the season, he feels everything would go smoothly, he would have a agreeable marriage with no risk to his heart.that is until he meets his intended s older sister Kate Sheffield will not have a well known rake like Anthony anywhere near her sister Doing everything in her power to prevent a marriage between the two at any means possible As both fight a battle of wills they can t resist the attraction that flare between and the risk it does to their heartsIt took me a few chapters to really warm up to Anthony, I didn t care for attitude or the way he treated Kate with one part that made me mad when they bit and kicked one another Although no blood was shed or anyone really hurt much how children horseplay I just couldn t feel anything for Anthony until he started to really open up and show not the peer fa ade but, the man who lost his father at a tender age and became the head of his beloved family Growing up with a fear he may as well end up like his father This is the man that really drew me into the story, although sometimes fear can be irrational, I could really understand and feel for him, as it took a lot to face his demons Kate also helped Anthony face his fears, as he did for her, Kate never backed down from Anthony and didn t pull her punches, and while at times she did seem a little weak in the knees around him, she wasn t alone in that matter as the spark of desire flared hot between the two as they both ended up kissing one another or The couple started out at each other throats, but really grew to understand and fall in love with one another bringing out an inner strength in each other The steam and tension was always there, but the love scenes don t come until later and call me prudish or a romantic fangirl but I really love when the love scene is worked toward then the main leads just jumping into bed the first chapter or page There s always a classic or memorable scene in each of JQ s books and TVWLM wasn t an exception with the crazy Pall Mall game playing out with a mallet of death and everyone out to ruin the other s game Kate showing Anthony she can be just as evil and sly as he It had me laughing and re reading the game scene a few times over The Bridgerton family is still a riot as they lead a helpful and not so helpful hand to the wayward couple Benedict and Colin eating walnuts and smashing them on the desk while Anthony had a hangover was true family love As always the true scene stealer is the great Lady Whistledown and she always gives hints and acts sometimes as a commenter to the events unfolding with her gossip column Overall a truly delightful read, with a great message of learning to conquer any fears with a love and understanding Another amazing JQ read 3.5 StarsShort and quick, I liked The Viscount Who Loved Me okay, but I wasn t much impressed with Anthony I didn t like that he was going to sleep with his ex mistress, just to get Kate out of his mind It left a sour taste in my mouth I liked Kate and I liked her family, Anthony just wasn t the greatest heroes. Men are so fragile, it s unrealI don t enjoy being condescended to, Kate said stifly His eyes flashed And I don t like being denied my rights, he returned, his voice cold and his face a harsh rendition of aristocratic powershe asked him to wait a week to have sex Lmao, so the hero here is part of those men who try to convince women that they need sexTell me, he whispered, his lips pressing against her ear Tell me how to make it right For I don t think I can grant you your reprieve He molded his body against hers, his strong arms holding her close as he groaned, I can t wait a week, Kate I simply cannot do it Oh, well I simply cannot like you, dog.
