Thank you to Avon Books for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 


When I started reading romance, I started with historical romance, and one of those was the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn.  So I was happy to read this, which is to be the last book in the Bridgerton series.  

This is a friends to lovers story and a prequel to the original Briderton series.  It was great seeing some of the original characters as children in this book. The trope in this one is typical for historical romance, a lady ruined and a friend or some other man stepping in to save her reputation.  I always find these stories to be a bit of a commentary on the fact that women had so little independence during that time period. What I did like was how Nicholas gave Georgie some independence and stood up for her. It was fun seeing these two fall in love, they were both extremely likable. 

This story was cute and light.  I enjoyed it and am sad to say goodbye to the Bridgertons.
