Because of Miss Bridgerton

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...
This is not one of those times.
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbours for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband...someday.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humour...

When Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, sparks begin to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can't abide is the one person they can't live without... - excerpt from book

Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is the latest book related to the Bridgerton series. The timeline of the book is set before The Duke and I and if I'm not wrong it's the aunty of the Bridgerton siblings. I really loved this book because it was funny and also heart warming at the same time. The characters really shine in this book. I love both the main characters very very much.Their interactions with each other is truly entertaining. The side characters for the book which is brother to the main  male was hilarious too. So much personality in all the characters which makes the storyline come alive. 

Speaking of the plot, it's unexpected where I couldn't make any guesses. It was fun reading a romance where I can't predict but I know that the main characters will end up with each other. Throughout the book, the twists that came was really good. I couldn't stop reading because I wanted more interactions between Billie and George. I flew through the book so quickly I somehow wanted more and I felt that the ending was a bit too rushed for me. It would be fun if it stretched more. I liked that the plot is now in a different timeline which makes thing very interesting for me. So much of the history is different for the timeline in the book. Even the fashion is different which intrigues me. 

If you're looking for a fun historical romance then I think this book really hits the spot. The feeling I got from the book was just like when I read the first book in the series. Throughout the Bridgerton series, after the third book it was just okay for me. It's been a long time since I got excited for the Bridgerton family although in this case it was a different member. A very quick read because you can't stop turning the pages and before you know it, the book finished. I highly recommend this for those who already love the author's books. If you're new to historical romance, this book won't spoil you on the sequel series.
