Rate this:
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors 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 and 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, either. Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly.

I am so glad Julia Quinn returned to her Bridgertons--she writes them with such love and care that they feel real. Loved the banter between the hero and heroine. Can't wait for the next one in the series!

I had trouble getting through this one. Mostly just a lot of banter between the two main characters and it was almost page 200 before anything substantive happened. Simply not one of her better book.

An easy read, but nothing much happens in the book, it left me feeling that you didn't really get to know the characters. Not one of her best, by enjoyable none the less.

Light, sweet, and frothy.

Perhaps a bit too frothy - I really just wanted more from this. More character development, more depth to both Billie and George, just more. I think a longer time frame for the novel would have helped the story, but even with all that JQ books always manage to make me smile. This was ostensibly set in the Georgian era, but with the exception of referring to wigs and powdered hair a few times, was rather a-historical for a historical romance.

Still, I always enjoy Julia Quinn novels, and this was no exception. Those who like the Bridgerton series will love this!

Julia Quinn's Bridgerton Family is one we all want to join. She brings us great characters and a simple plot line to follow. Only flaw is I wish it had been longer!

Everyone's favorite family is baaaaaack! It's an earlier generation of Bridgertons (and their neighbors, the Rokesbys) who take center stage in this series-opener, and while nothing can quite match the total magic of Quinn's original Bridgertons series, there's a lot to love about this funny, charming book, and there are enough intriguing secondary characters to ensure that I'll be eager to read the later installments. Look, I think Julia Quinn is the best regency romance author currently writing, period, so even a book like this that, while delightful, isn't actually the absolute BEST of her work, is still fun and funny and a wonderful read for both old and new fans of the genre.

"Because of Miss Bridgerton" is charming tale of two neighbors who despise each other only to be stuck together for hours in a foiled feline rescue effort. Lively, tomboy Billie Bridgerton and neighbor George Rokesby have grown up together. A few years her senior, George has no time for sassy Miss Bridgerton. But when they're thrown together for a few awkward hours, they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other.
This is the kind of witty, classy romance I can tolerate so hooray for this series!
