An enjoyable regency based romance, I personally enjoyed the more diverse aspects of the show however it was still an easy read.

Netflix took an adorable, funny, angsty, and emotional marriage of inconvenience and made it into an annoying love triangle. Basically, I’m so happy I read the book!

Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the book as much as the Netflix show but it was still a good read! Just small disclaimer, the characters from the book are very different to the ones from the show, so please don't expect too much of the Kate and Anthony from the show! Didn't really like Anthonys character in the book since some of the things he said were quite problematic but understandable considering the time the book takes place in.

Lovely second book in the serious, and perfect for some summer fun reading. 

Sometimes I find the rampant sexism inherent in period romances a bit too much and it takes me out of the book for a minute, but I think I may have liked this one better than the first Bridgerton novel. 

Now to get my hands on the next! Should be no trouble to make my way through this series before more seasons of the show come out. Who doesn’t like a nice bit of fluff?
