Summary First Comes Scandal.
This book might tie for first place as my favorite Julia inn novel It was an absolute delight to read Both main characters were immensely likable their conversation and banter flowed very well The tension and feelings between them felt natural and delicious There were cats In carriages I stayed Leaders Eat Last up way past my bedtime reading it and immediately wanted to turn around and start it again Juliainn knocks it out of the park again 15 stars rounded La muralla verde up because well Nostalgia It IS Juliainn after all But I am severely disappointed by this whole series I think my feelings about this book can easily summed p in one word lackluster I was mostly bored never invested and I don t think I even smiled Which makes me wonder have my tastes changed that dramatically or has J s writing changed Because I loved the first book in this series but then it just went downhill for me book by book Things that didn t work for me1 The structureBasically my biggest complaint is that everything interesting happened off page The book starts with Georgie Bridgerton already ruined and Nicholas Rokesby going home from Scotland after being summoned to Kent by his father Rokesby senior then informs him that he should marry Georgie who is after all his godchild and one of Nicholas oldest friends Nicholas and Georgie talk about this Get married off page Travel back to Scotland together Fast forward a few week and they re in love And that Was It Seriously There also too much time spent on things that didn t interest me and I didn t find funny cat humor hammock building please don t ask various medical emergencies that they just happen to stumble over to name a few There wasn t enough time spent on forging a connection and going from kind of friends to for me they basically didn t spent enough time together talking about real things for me to believe their love 2 Internal monologueBecause all the good things happen off page a lot of time was spent on the characters being in their own head going over things that happened analyzing things that happened off page and there was very little dialogue This let to me not being invested in the characters because I didn t feel like I ever knew them I didn t feel their connection and so I didn t believe they went from friends to I also

But A Close Uartersa close arters ride with a grumpy cat might turn it into a marriage of love There is only one thing to be done his father said You must marry her First Comes a Scandal I had read and loved some of the previous books so I was than eager to get to this one I liked Georgie and Nicholas They re both good loyal people with a passion for knowledge and they ve known each other for what seems like forever I enjoyed their family background and there s a scene with the two family butlers that was absolutely the best part of the book Plot wise it was fairly non existent The so called conflict was their arguing about the proposal and after that was solved I was nearly halfway through the book The entire book was a gentle meandering I did enjoy everyone s lack of experience but the chemistry was a bit lacking and the leap from friendship to lust to love was a bit telling instead of showing Overall it was a great set Children of the New World up with characters I did like however I wanted a lot from it Huge thanks to Avon for providing the arc free of charge Whether or not you like this book will be determined by 2 things is banter enough to get you through a 300 page romance with basically zero plot It s good banter it s J s strong suit But when I say there is no plot this is a marriage of convenience story where they don t decide to get marriedntil page 100 and then they do get married and then I swear to god it s like a 100 page carriage ride for them to get to Scotland I get that falling in love is the plot of any romance but it would be nice if having dinner with the family carriage ride to Scotland were not like 150 pages of the book For me banter is not enough to hide the fact that there was zero plot It just feels like the whole point was to delay them having sex ntil what felt like a
reasonable amount of time Whereas I d say the reasonable amountamount of time Whereas I d say the reasonable amount time is after they get married Is seeing a few of the Bridgerton kids as babiestoddlers enough to get you through a 300 page romance with basically zero plot Again YMMV on that Julia inn s Bridgerton series contains some of my all time favorite historical romances so when she started writing these preuel books I was completely on board First Comes Scandal is the fourth book in Rokesby series pairing Georgiana Bridgerton with Nicholas Rokesby Georgie s reputation is ruined from a foiled elopement and Nicholas is summoned from Edinburgh to deal with the situationThe good All the characters are very likable Nicholas is training for a career Georgie is so bright Everyone banters in a good intelligent manner 1010 on the banter front Do you like cameos of little Bridgertons We re p to C in this book so you get scenes with Anthony Benedict and ColinThe bad I felt like there were chunks missing from this book view spoilerNicholas is summoned home the Bridgertons invite the Rokesbys over to dinner He proposes and she turns him down Her former suitor falls out of a tree Nicholas treats him and that s the end of that subplot They get engaged We somehow skip entirely the scene of their second attempted kiss as well as their wedding and *jump right to travel We jump again to Georgie stuck in the hunting lodge for *right to travel We jump again to Georgie stuck in the hunting lodge for week the road trip took two weeks but we only see the first two days They rent a house Georgie has an asthma attack The epilogue then jumps to Nicholas being completely done with medical school hide spoiler Tropes Friends to Lovers Marriage of Convenience It s Julia inn what s not to like It s charming funny and easy to read I read it in less than a dayBuuuuuut that said while I enjoyed myself I wasn t blown away I found the characters young and incomplete so a bit dull at times While the banter entertained as always DNF at 20%I was in the mood for a historical and thought I d try an Quantum (Captain Chase upcoming J release even though I haven t read anything new by her in years Well apparently there was a reason for that I have a ridiculous amount of nostalgia for J s backlist but the magic just isn t here any Either I ve changed a lot as a reader or J has changed as an author I m not sure which is true but it doesn t really matter This wasninteresting for the first 20% and I have no intention of forcing myself to finish the bookDisclaimer I received a free e ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest revie.
