About the Author
From the Back 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
But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry— he's also chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield—the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams . . .
Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes do not make the best husbands— and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate is determined to protect her sister—but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself . . .--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

He flaunts his charms and walks all over our heroine, Kate Sheffield.
Kate isn't as pretty or as charming as her younger sister, and Mr. Bridgerton(or Julia Quinn), likes to remind us constantly of the vast difference between the sisters. Edwina is beautiful, Kate is average. Edwina's laugh is enchanting, Kate's is borderline witchy. Edwina is a goddess behold, Kate is her older sister.
With Mr. Bridgerton's sights set on marrying Edwina, there is one obstacle in his way, the sour older sister.
Kate is great in my opinion. She's independent (as much as the time period allowed), she's witty and funny and can give you a good retort. Anthony finds himself liking her in his pursuit to earn her favour. But can't BELIEVE he's attracted to her and not her AMAZING sister. Ew.
Blah blah blah...
He continues to disrespect, belittle and hurt her, and all the poor lass can do is take it with a strong facade. She, of course, is not immune to his manly charms, and can't resist his pull.
MIGHT I SAY HE EVEN PHSYCALLY HURTS HER AT ONE POINT.
Even though Julia Quinn tried to play it off as humour...this didn't sit well with a lot of readers.
The end was comfortable, which took it from one star to 2 in my opinion, but this is a book I'll never pick up again.
Although this book wasn't as shitty and vomit-worthy as the first, it's still not one of my best reads.
It is the story of two sisters. Edwina is so lovely men don't notice her sister Kate. However Kate has a fierce protective love for her sister. When renowned rake Anthony Bridgerton courts Edwina, Kate thinks he is not good enough. She tries to scare Anthony away.
The romance in this book is endearing as Kate and Anthony fight to overcome past traumas. However the real strength of this book is the love that binds the two main families, including competitive and very funny pall mall games.
“It means that love isn’t about being afraid that it will all be snatched away. Love’s about finding the one person who makes your heart complete, who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be.”
This will forever remain my favourite quote and definition of love.

The plot is un-imaginative and at times ludicrous. The lead characters spend half of the book threatening bodily harm on eachother and on many occaissions carrying out those threats. It's supposed to be funny but it's childish nonsense (some might say abuse).
Anthony was a fairly good character in the first book, but all of that is ripped from him and he becomes a horny teenager who doesn't know how to keep it in his breeches. Kate could have been a good heroine if I was shown that she was different to all the other ladies and not told so once or twice a page.
As with the first book, the dialogue is clunky, there are a few americanisms and a lot of rubbish. But as with the first it is readable, i whizzed through this in an afternoon, time wasting, brain resting drivel.
If you are looking for high literature, unforgettable characters and the New Darcy, this is not for you, if you are looking to be vaguely entertained ... read on.
This time, we hone in on the life of Bridgerton sibling #1, aka the Viscount, Anthony Bridgerton.
He's never been fussed about marriage, but this season, he decides, will be the one where he finds a suitable wife, and settle down.
Kate Sheffield is the elder sibling in her family, too. Stepping out into the London season a couple of years later than desired, she is in the shadow of her beautiful stepsister, Edwina. Her stepmother, Mary desires for both girls to find good matches, but the burden is on, to Edwina find the catch of the season.
And also a rake.
Who doesn't have the approval of the sister, Kate, but seems to affect her in all manner of inappropriate ways.
What ensues is a great enemies to lovers story, where we see both parties fight their attraction to each other, until they are not able to any more.
