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 neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.
Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...
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.
But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...
Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins 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...

I'm not sure I can even finish this book. 150 pages in and there is no storyline thus far, the writing is banal, and what constitutes as banter between the characters consists mostly of them telling each other to "shut up" (very 18th century). Contrary to the synopsis, there's nothing Downton Abbey-esque about this story.
Julia Quinn has proven herself to be a truly inspired and creative writer. This book was entertaining and downright fun to read! I love the Bridgerton family!
