Can there be any greater challenge to London’s Ambitious Mamas than an unmarried duke Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers April 1813By all accounts Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend’s sister the lovely and almost on the shelf Daphne Bridgerton But the two of them know the truth it’s all an elabor. Okay here we go I read this because it's my friend's favorite and she wanted me to give it a go I think it's important to try new things because I've fallen in love with genres this way Unfortunately I really didn't like this and here's whyWhat I liked The build up for this romance was really well done The characters had great chemistry when they were falling in love My initial intro to the characters was great easy to latch on to them The male MC has a stutter My son has a stutter and seeing the Duke's struggle hit me in my mommy heartWhat I didn't like oh boy here we go Our female MC was really smart until she wasn't Then she was really really not Daf has four brothers We're reminded of this a lot She's really wise sassy and knows that the Duke is a Rake player with lots of experience which doesn't intimidate her Until the night before her wedding Suddenly the girl knows less than a houseplant view spoiler This intelligent intuitive woman who pays attention to her brothers and the people around her who is in her 20's has no idea how babies are made And is shocked when she learns you have to have sex Then she's shocked to learn sex can be just for fun This is not a product of her time I've read a lot of classics and while it was a very different time women were not left this in the dark The way the whole scene plays out is way over the top hide spoiler
