Romancing Mister Bridgerton

June 8th, 2016
Author: Julia Quinn    Series: Bridgertons #4

Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend’s brother for… well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret… and fears she doesn’t know him at all.

Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of everyone’s preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can’t seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph.

But when Colin returns to London from a trip aboard, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same, especially Penelope Featherington, the girl haunting his dreams!

And when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide… is she his biggest threat, or his promise of a happy ending?

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

I loved Colin Bridgerton so far throughout this series, his charming witty personality with that devilish grin of his will forever be ingrained in my heart but sadly, this book wasn’t one of my favorites for me. Yes it had some witty banter, but I felt like it didn’t have that pizzazz like the others did. Other than revealing who Lady Whistledown was, nothing else major or exciting happened. To me something was missing, something exciting, thrilling, or jaw dropping. For me, it was one of those reads that you wanted to get over with so you can get to the next book.

It just saddens me that Colin’s story wasn’t anything special as he was very memorable in the others, always such a scene stealer. Also I found Penelope to be rather bland. I know she is made to be your average everyday woman of the time, but other than being a witty writer, having a kind heart, and being in love with the hero since she was a teen, nothing else stood out about her with me.

Unfortunately, I don’t think I would want to read this one again if one day I decided to re-read the series for a second time. I honestly think I would skip it as I know I probably would struggle to get through it again as I did the first time.
