Julia Quinn: Romancing Mister Bridgerton



F London society And the wedding night well that had been magical tooAnd in fact marriage was magical Colin was a wonderful husband teasing gentle attentiveExcept when the topic of Lady Whistledown arose 298There were still 70 pages to go in the book I had to reread the passage ust to be sure that yes uinn really had Safe Words just glossed over Penelope and Colin s wedding wedding night and at least the first few days of their marriageall because Lady Whistledown was suddenly the important part of the book SeriouslyI finished the book because I do not DNF books when I m that close to finishing them but when I reached page 298 I decided that I could care less about all the Lady Whistledown stuff I also began to find Colin sealousy over Penelope being published anonymously published but still published annoying The writerly ego stroking scene that occurred when Colin finally let Penelope read his writings and she of course found them wonderful made me want to gag That s probably a personal thing I have a feeling that if Colin had been worried about Penelope s reception of say his woodworking skills I would have felt sympathetic uinn His To Claim (McBain Brothers Alpha, just hit the wrong buttons with me when she made not one but both her main characters writers and then made that aspect an important part of the book And of course Colin s writing was wonderful through and through another thing that got my back up hide spoiler Meet Lady Whistledown your one and only source into the scandalous lives of London s elite I had high hopes for Colin s love story and the grand reveal of Lady Whistledown Disappointment on both accountsColin is a shell of the man he used to be and there was no zing in his love story He has also become somewhat of aerk after all his globe trotting adventures The only reason I didn t DNF this book was Penelope I have a soft corner for wallflowers and Penelope seemed like a genuinely interesting character Too bad her choice in men sucked This entire series till this book atleast is pretty much like Gossip girl for peers but with less sex and spice I m actually gonna take a break from the Bridgertons go watch GG and fangirl over Nate for a while XOXO I am certainly not going to marry Penelope Featherington Ever since we heard Colin Bridgerton utter ummm shout the above statement we should have known that he s going to eat his words sooner or laterAnd eat them he didPenelope Featherington She freshly comes out to society out to meet the ton with an excess of a few stones in her weight and either orangeyellowred gowns which doesn t do her complexion any good We can t blame her Her mother is a tyrant But Penelope knows she doesn t look good The entire ton would agree with her She also lacks the confidence to show her sharp wit to at least make up for her disgraceful attire And instead of being seen as an intellectual lady with a terrible fashion sense she s seen as a stuttering plump and overripe orange only worthy of staying at the sidelines as a wallflower Season after season she manages to improve herself loosing the extra weight however never being able to get rid of the horrendous clothes her mother has been forcing her but still the ton doesn t see her or rather refuses to see her as her beautiful self And she ends up on the spinster shelfColin Bridgerton What could he ask for He s loaded with good looks and charm And he s a Bridgerton So what Unfortunately one does find it hard to seek contentment with The Black Sheeps Baby (Into The Heartland) (Into The Heartland) (Silhouette Intimate Moments, just what he has He has sought refuge in his travels He s notust the charming easygoing gentleman everyone thinks because behind his beguiling smile are tons of layers of insecurities and dissatisfaction with his lifeBut in this work of fiction lies real people with real problems How can we not relate to either one or both of them Who hasn t been insecure a few times in their life Who hasn t felt the fear of looking a fool Who hasn t dreaded no being able to search their life s purposeHow could one not want what Penelope and Colin have They were friends in the beginning and ended up as something And having one another seemed to be than enoughRomancing Mr Bridgerton despite the laugh out loud parts and the easy smiles it caused me or rather distressed me with since I couldn t help but smile in public places is a romance of tough and broad proportions It made me laugh It made me smile It made me cry It touched my heart and it touched my soulAnd it also made me desire a certain Mr Colin Bridgerton He loves intensely Just the way a certain me wants to be loved As proof I leave you with this I love you with everything I am everything I ve been and everything I hope to be I love you with my past and I love you for my future I love you for the children we ll have and for the years we ll have together I love you for everyone of my smiles and even for every one of your smiles 35My favorite of the Bridgerton boys and this was such a cute story of being in love and believing in that love 35 starsThough I loved Penelope Featherington Colin was another story altogether Before this book I really loved Colin I couldn t wait for his story Maybe my expectations were too high I don t know but I really didn t like Colin most of the time At times he came off like a big asshole He was blowing his top every time the wind blew His temper was Pursuit of Justice just a bit much One minute he was fine and then he was pissy cold and rude If I was Penelope I would have kicked him in the balls Penelope was sweet and smart I felt bad that after being the shy wallflower that everyone acted like was a ugly plain girl to have the man of your dream finally want you only to have him snapping at you at the drop of a hat wasust sad Overall with the plot and Penelope this book was still 3 to 35 star read but Colin was a real disappointment. Ton Gadis yang seakan tak terlihat itu tiba tiba menjadi gadis yang menghantui mimpi mimpinya Tapi ketika Colin mendapati Penelope memiliki rahasia tersendiri si bujangan yang sulit ditaklukan itu harus memutuskan apakah Penelope merupakan ancaman terbesarnya ataukah awaban menuju kebahagiaan selama lamany.

Colin is my favorite Bridgerton since the first book so I was really excited to read his book and it was amazing I also really love Penelope she is my favorite heroine in this series I was happy she finally got the man of her dreams Their love story was adorable Additionaly we finally found out who Lady Whistledown is For a long time I had no clue but in this book I had some suspicions The author really chose the perfect person to be her this made the story even better Anyway I m going to miss her in the next books There is a perfect word to describe how I feel about Julia uinn It s meh I don t love her I don t hate her I will read her I will uickly forget herI m not sure why that is because she is very popular and other people seem to find her books and this particular one especially amazing But to me they are ust too cute Too sweet I don t want cute and sweet I m sure you ve gathered that much from my reviews I can tolerate cute and sweet only in really homoeopathic dosesSo what is Romancing Mr Bridgerton about Well she has loved him for ages he barely notices her Until he notices her and falls in love And then they get married and live happily ever after Also they make out in a carriage once which is something I have always wanted to doThe most interesting part of this story was how uinn handled the bruised ego of the hero which was bruised on the account of his beloved being successful than him and what s worse in the same field This I feel needs to be addressed often in romance novels Is it unsexy for the hero to be less successful than the heroine Especially if they work in the same field Would you want to read a romance novel where a hero takes in his stride that he would never be as good of a scientistdoctorwriter as the heroine How about real life Personally I prefer not to date another fiction writer Once Upon a Seduction (Its All About Attitude just in case Bruised male egos is something I have very little time forfull reviews back to due to popular demand true story St Bride s Church Fleet Street London England c1830 I read this when it first came out over ten years ago and remember loving Colin Though I m a bit of a re reader I haven t done so Conseuently Iumped at the chance to Rodeo Daughter join in a buddy read the forth in this enduring seriesHowever on re read I was really impressed with Penelope Don t get me wrong I still had heart palpitations over Colin and his deep green eyes Nevertheless I appreciated Penelope s subtle straight forward intelligence calm humor and not so common common sense Not that she doesn t have a secret or two up her sleeve I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed seeing these two perfect for each other people the wallflower spinster no one notices and the always popular Golden Boy go from friendship to love on this second visit to Ms uinn s world Of course it isn t strictly true that they were friends first because Penelope has loved Colin for years She always felt any attention Colin gave her was but perfunctory courtesy Thus it is a sweet delight to see him finally realize theewel right under his nose This story than simply holds up it is definitely worthy of notice todayPS I wish they d put it on audioPPS Ms uinn borrowed the curmudgeonly Lady Danbury from Stephanie Laurens Cynster series and made her than a walk on character she s an integral part of the plot Such fun19th century engraving engraver unknown 19th century public domain picture Yes I know curmudgeonly is a masculine term but it works here I think At some point in our lives we all ask some fundamental uestions regarding our existence the great mysteries of the universe the past the present and the future of humanity Mankind is curious and peculiar like this spending hours pondering on notions dedicating personal effort and money researching reading trying to find a solution to uench the hunger that consumes us The Author knows this kind of struggle all too well The last few days have been dedicated to the answer of one single uestion one uestion to define her personality her hopes her dreams and wishes but she still hasn t made up her mind Anthony or Colin Bridgerton How can a person choose Anthony is the Rake turned into family man extraordinaire while Colin is the carefree smooth genial and flirty gentleman every creature with ovaries adores and thanks to Romancing Mister Bridgerton we discovered another side to him that rendered him alluring and well delicious don t mind the Author she s a notorious man eater The uestionmark that haunts her thoughts may remain immoveable like the mountains but the Author can declare with clarity that the forth story of the Bridgerton family is her favorite She found a shadow of herself in Penelope Featherington the witty funny wallflower everyone overlooked She devoured the pages because aside from a maneater she s also a book eater that brought to life a heart warming slow burning toe curling romance infused with the perfect dose of hilarity and sensuality with spicy scandals and even spicier clandestine meetings And the cherry on top The bounty on Lady Whistledown s head Between precious Bridgertons moments falling in love and magical dances the Author felt calm At peace Home Penelope and Colin tugged at her heartstrings and made her believe Believe that Colins Bridgerton existThe Author is a little naive so please forgive her extravagant declarations Katerina s Bookish Papers July 2018 Re readlistened to the audiobook version Oct 20185 stars HistoricalRegency RomanceThe audiobook narrator was

Ffable charming and witty Colin has been my favorite Bridgerton sibling from the beginning and I was most looking forward to his story especially knowing that the strikingly handsome popular bachelor was being paired with his sister s sweet best friend plump unpopular wallflower spinster Penelope Featherington I adore romances where the supposedly ugly duckling Plain Jane heroine is finally seen as a beautiful swan has her day in the sun and finds happily ever after with the wonderful hero of her dreams and Romancing Mister Bridgerton is one of the most enjoyable that I ve readColin and Penelope are perfect for each other and the fact that they re insecure flawed and have some growing up to do makes them all the relatable and lovable Their relationship progression from friendship to love was believable sweet and utterly romantic and the love scene was exceptionally touching beautiful sensual and tender Colin s gentle passionate reverence of Penelope during their lovemaking was sigh worthyIt s a heartwarming funny and delightful feel good romance with a swoon worthy hero and an adorable heroine that will have you smiling laughing crying cheering sighing and perhaps wishing for your very own Mr Colin BridgertonWhat else can I say It s like the highest uality dark chocolatejust scrumptious I m in love with Colin I adore Penelope and I simply love love love this book 5 Big dreamy starsMy favorite Colin uote He murmured her name tenderly taking her face in his hands I love you he said his voice low and fervent I love you with everything I am everything I ve been and everything I hope to be I love you with my past and I love you for my future He bent forward and kissed her once softly on the lips I love you for the children we ll have and for the years we ll have together I love you for every one of my smiles and even for every one of your smiles I love that Colin has striking green eyes How about Michael Vartan for Colinimage error Oh what a difference the second half of a book can makeI want to be clear on this when I was still only halfway through the book I considered it a keeper Penelope was wonderful truly shy around anyone she didn t know well with a few horribly painfulembarrassing moments in her life that uinn actually took the time to show I cringed in sympathy when Penelope came upon Colin My Guilty Pleasure (Harlequin Blaze just as he was telling his brothers that he wouldn t marry her and Penelope did what she could to preserve her dignity and not make it too obvious that he hadust crushed her dreams I enjoyed watching Penelope blossom as she resigned herself to being an old maid Her friendship with Lady Danbury warmed my heart and I loved it when they both confessed to attending horrible Smith Smythe musicales so that the one Smith Smythe girl who realized they were awful would have someone in the audience who was not making fun of herI loved Colin too He was a nice guy and never hurt Penelope on purpose He felt miserable when she overheard him saying that he wouldn t marry her it s ust that he was too immature at that point in his life to know how to best handle the situation Later on in their lives when there was another moment when he could have accidentally hurt her feelings she stopped him and he took that time to think about the potential conseuences of his actions and how Penelope might be hurt by them Then he deliberately did his best not to hurt her Colin wasn t in love with Penelope then and hadn t yet realized that a wonderful person had been right under his nose for years but he still liked her and I could have hugged him for the kind and thoughtful way he handled that momentThere s no way I can properly gripe about what uinn did in the second half last third of the book without spoiling things so if you don t like spoilers stop reading this review at this point or accurately don t click the spoiler linkview spoilerThere are a few things I really hate coming across in romance novels Widowed heroes or heroines still mourning the loss of their first spouses babies and young children very pregnant heroines heroines whose physical description likens them to children andmain characters who are writers I ve only encountered one author Nora Roberts who I can consistently trust to include any of these things without raising my hackles Romancing Mister Bridgerton has shown me that I can t add uinn to my short listI was wondering where the book was going to go when a little over halfway through it Colin was already giddily insisting upon marrying Penelope and trying to get it through her mother s skull that yes he really did want to marry Penelope and not her sister Felicity Then I found out as uinn revealed the big secret Penelope is Lady Whistledown the woman who had been anonymously skewering the ton for 11 yearsI could have lived with this revelation although I was annoyed that uinn kept the reader in the dark via artificial means by simply never having Penelope think about it In fact I enjoyed some of the angst that came from Penelope wondering if Colin was ashamed of her because of her work as Lady Whistledown However I felt that Lady Whistledown and writing in general then hijacked the storyThis book has a grand total of one sex scene which occurs prior to Colin and Penelope s marriage They spend 70 pages of the book married most authors would have found a way to fit a sex scene even a fade to black one in those 70 pages I m usually on the side of sweet romantic moments less sex so I wouldn t necessarily have minded that uinn only included one sex scene if it weren t for the fact that it felt like there could maybe should have been one and it was glossed over Here is the moment when the book really made me angry The wedding had been magical It was a small affair much to the dismay Emua orang terobsesi dengan kolumnis gosip terkenal Lady Whistledown yang tampaknya tak bisa mempubliksikan lembar berita tanpa menyebutkan nama Colin pada paragraf pertama Tapi sekembalinya ke London dari luar negeri Colin mendapati tak ada dalam hidupnya yang sama seperti dulu terutama Penelope Feathering.
