This book was a severe disappointment, especially since J. Quinn is one of my favorite authors. The whole problem for me stems from the 'hero'. Basically, he treats the heroine like dirt for 90% of the story. After 2 other books, I feel well-acquainted with the Bridgerton family, and I think it is fair to say that Quinn intends to present them as "good" people. I find it hard to believe that a person with even a modicum of goodness would treat anyone (even a servant) with the appalling lack of respect that Benedict shows Sophie. I would recommend that any reader skip this one (especially if you like the other Bridgertons) and move on to Colin's book.

This book left me completely cold. I didn't care for the way the "gentleman" treated poor Sophie and I thought there was entirely no chemistry between them, very unusual for one of my favorite authors. When will these heroes learn that when a woman says no, she means no!
I was so disappointed, in fact, that I returned the book after I finished reading it, something that I never do!
Of course, I am greatly looking forward to Julia Quinn's next book in the series and I sincerely doubt she will let me down again.

This is the absolute worst novel by Julia Quinn. I have always loved her books, but after reading this one I was leery of continuing to read anything by her. Happily, her next few redeemed her. I would not recommend this one at all, unless you would like to despise the "hero" and feel ashamed of the "heroine". This was definitely a disappointing novel and has made me much more cautious about reading Julia Quinn, whose storytelling I always adored. The only gentlemen I found in this book were secondary characters, not Benedict - though his name seems quite appropriate. I don't even include this book with my Julia Quinn collection, that is how much I dislike it.
