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.
