5 stars Historical Regency RomanceI ll be honest, this is the book that attracted me to Julia Quinn s Bridgertons to begin with and the story that I was most looking forward to reading in the series I mean, with a title like When He Was Wicked Well, I knew I simply couldn t pass it up Although I really liked this, surprisingly, it s not my favorite of the series That honor is still tied between the breathtaking, fairy tale romance An Offer From a Gentleman and the sweet, whimsical Romancing Mist [...]
My Review This, the 6th installment of the Bridgerton series, is so different from the rest of the stories that it took me by surprise a pleasant surprise Having read and found the previous books lighter, funnier reads, I hadn t expected to find this one much different If there was ever any question as to Ms Quinn s ability to write a intense, deeper story, When He Was Wicked has answered it with a resounding yes When He Was Wicked is the story of Michael Stirling, Rake Extraordinaire, who has [...]
This book recounts the age old tale of falling in love with your best friend s girlbut what happens when you get your chance at her hand, albeit at the loss of your best friend through his untimely death This is a beautiful Regency romance on grief, loss, and moving on I ve read and mostly loved all the books featuring the Bridgerton family, and this is the book I return to time after time because I think it is the best in the series It is written in your typical inestimable Julia Quinn style, s [...]
4.5 STARSI loved this I haven t read this series in order, I think I ve read Sophie s story, but that s it I ve been told that the Bridgertons are entwined throughout the series so it s best read in order But I gotta tell you, I loved this anyways and never felt I was lost or not privy to previous developments I do plan on reading the rest of the series and only wish they re as good as this one.So, Michael Stirling The man had my attention from the first page His forbidden love and acutely despe [...]

Ahh Julia Quinn, the best comfort read out there Not only is this an excellent comfort read but it s comfort with a surprising twist I had to check than once that I was reading a Juia Quinn and not Lisa Kleypas whose steam scenes can be a whole lot steamier than Quinn s This book was fantastic Filled with emotion that starts out simmering and ends up ready to firecracker high in the sky, here s the story of Francesca Bridgerton and Michael Stirling friends cousins through Francesca s husband It [...]
This is definitely the most intense of the Bridgerton series that I ve read so far Francesca Bridgerton is Michael s ultimate Jessie s Girl He has been completely in love with her since the first time he met her She is his cousin s who is like a brother to him wife He never tries to win her, or even wish for her, but has resigned himself to bitter acceptance and self hatred for secretly wanting his cousin s wife He tamps all his feelings down and is ashamed of himself.Well, the cousin dies in th [...]
Muy bonito, aunque el final quiz s algo precipitado, y me hubiera gustado un ep logo de ellos dos y que ella reaccionara antes.
This one is one of the very best in the series, surpassed only by Colin and Penelope s story in my opinion.Francesca has always been strangely absent in this series It s been four years since I read the first books but if I m not mistaken she s only been mentioned but is never actually there until her own book I see now that there is a reason for that Francesca doesn t really fit in with the rest of the Bridgertons Her personality is different, I would say she s serious or at least reserved th [...]
3.5 stars I really loved the first part of the book and I absolutely adored the hero, Michael I did like Francensca in the beginning as well it was the last pages that changed my opinion of hers Phrases like I don t know what I want , I don t want to think about it , I don t want to decide on that now were her train of thought for much longer than I was willing to accept and forgive Like an ostrich, she hid her head in the ground and willfully refused to see or think about the truth I can accept [...]

Fanning myself Goodness This book should get two stars from me, but here s an interesting fact Michael Stirling rates an entire star on his own I found myself frustrated with Francesca s behavior It s not that I couldn t understand it, just that it dragged on for far too long I ve noticed that a propensity to draw out a story is one of the weaknesses in Quinn s writing This isn t the only book of hers I ve read that had me heaving a sigh, rolling my eyes, and uttering But if you can get past the [...]
One of if not THE best of the Bridgerton series, this is a bit darker in tone than most of the others I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Simon Prebble, who does an absolutely wonderful job I don t have time to write a full review at the moment, but perhaps one day
2.5 starsThis bookwas slow.I didn t really find it as exciting as the rest of the Bridgerton series n i ve read them all Even though it did have the family s trilling flavour, the book lacked JQ s usual sarcastic humour and chemistryough I guess the treasure hunting was supposed to make up for it.All in all an OK READ.
This is the ninth Quinn I ve read, and always after finishing one of her books I ve thought, well, that was quite nice and clever and well written There have been some books of hers I ve rated two stars There were quite a few I thought were good, solid three star reads, and then there wasRomancing Mister Bridgerton, which had many elements I loved I consider it a favorite but not a five star read All in all, while I ve liked and enjoyed Julia Quinn s books, I never really got the hype until toda [...]
hmmmm I m very torn on the rating.This is my first JQ novel and not sure if it was the novel I picked or JQ that is not my style.Don t get me wrong I m not saying she s a bad writer She has legions of fans I m just not quite sure she s for me Perhaps I should try one of her humorous novels before giving up.The setup here was quite realistic in many ways and I was drawn into the first half The loss of the heroine s first husband and hero s best friend cousin was dealt with well The first husband [...]
This book Absolutely amazing My fave Julia Quinn.
A ver c mo me explico Estaba entre tres y cuatro estrellas Desde luego, no parece de la serie Bridgerton porque apenas hay toques de humor, salvo cuando aparece Colinalsdkjf alskjdga sldkfas o la madre Pero el tema me ha parecido interesante Yo, que soy m s rancia que las protagonistas de estas novelas y no me dejar a comer el tetamen as de buenas a primeras, me he puesto muy en la piel de Francesca Puede cansar su actitud, es cierto, sobre todo SPOILER una vez que hay tema y qu tema, qu calores [...]
3.5 Francesca eres una Bridgerton Stars Mi libro favorito de esta serie sigue siendo el de Daphne y Simon y mi pareja favorita la de Colin y Pen lope y mi amor de la vida Colin.Reconozco que es un libro diferente a los dem s es m s emocional a la pobre Francesca le pas de todo perdi a su marido a los dos a os de estar casada y tambi n su embarazo, pero no s porque no pude conectar con ella, tal vez ser porque casi no sali en los anteriores libros por ser tan diferente a su familia no s pero simp [...]
He disfrutado mucho de esta relectura creo que m s incluso que la primera vez que le la novela, que fue hace tanto que guardaba un recuerdo un poco difuso ni siquiera ten a claro qui n era Francesca m s all de ser la Bridgerton menos Bridgerton Pero ahora me he reencontrado con ella y con Michael y su preciosa y original historia y me ha encantado hacerlo
This was by far my favorite book of this series, and it s not even close Honestly, when I started these books, I was looking forward to this one so muchjust based on the title Yep Because oh I do love the wicked ones But, confession, I have yet to truly love and connect to any book in this series There is something about the writing the over use of certain words and the pacing that has made these books ones I can set down for days before getting back to And I can t read them back to back So it w [...]
El nico comentario que voy a hacer es Michel es escoc s, y los protagonistas escoceses no decepcionan A Francesca un sacudon le daba yo para que se avive un poco En fin, poca conexi n con esta Bridgerton, pero todo mi cari o para el se or Stirling.
I had two primary concerns going into When He Was Wicked 1 I was curious to see what Quinn would do with a heroine who GASP isn t a virgin 1 and 2 I was pretty sure she d never given than like five minutes thought to Francesca until it was time to write this book.Francesca was prior to this book and following it, honestly the Invisible Bridgerton I m fairly certain that she s only ever present in a scene once in the previous five books, and that s a scene wherein Simon Bassett can t tell her an [...]
You have to say it, he said If you feel it, then you have to say it I m a greedy bastard and I want it all She looked up at him, her eyes bright I love you Michael touched her cheek I have no idea what I did to deserve you, he said You didn t have to do anything, she whispered You just had to be whimpers Sorry My heart needs a moment to deal with the sudden onslaught of feels.When He Was Wicked was without a doubt the most emotionally draining of the Bridgerton books, but that wasn t a bad thing [...]
LOVED IT This one definitely had a different feel than the previous books in the series It s a bit darker, deals with the lovely Francesca Bridgerton and her newly wed husband, John KilMartin of only 2 years, when he complains of a headache, goes to take a sleep, and never wakes upThe surprising thing about this story was that Francesca and John are happily passionately in love with each other, when tradegy strikes, so your heart really breaks for her Shockingly, your heart breaks for Micheal al [...]
Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Cousins Wife.Straight away with this chapter of the Bridgerton series you notice how different it is from the prior Firstly there is the very noticble lack of Bridgerton family presence Also, there has never been any real mention of Francesca in the past books I dont even remember her being married but apparently that happened also Thinking back over the Brigerton Series to write these reviews I realised this was one of my favourites.Francesca Frannue is happily married [...]
Tristemente esta serie esta decayendo, aqu le m s del 70% en diagonal, ya para el final es que se pone un poquito m s interesante, me faltan las historias de dos hermanos, no estoy muy animada para leerlas.
This is a beautiful and touching book Michael and Francesca s story was not as lighthearted as the other Bridgerton sibling s books While I did get frustrated with Francesca at times, overall, I was so engaged in both characters that any frustration was overshadowed by the delight of seeing their relationship develop This is how lovers should begin, by building on a friendship, and letting the rest come naturally Although this was a heartbreaking story at times, I do want to mention that the lov [...]
me ha encantado Michael y Francesca me han encantado y, como no, la aparici n de Colin es LOVE He tenido unos ratos de risa view spoiler cuando Colin habla con Michael en el club, me mor a de risa Y el momento en la biblioteca con Francesca me part a de risa con los dos hide spoiler Los Bridgerton son encantadores
