1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better...

--Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814

But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry--he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield--the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams...

Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes to not make the best husbands--and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate's determined to protect her sister--but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...

Liked book 1 and the TV show, so I was excited to start book 2! Plus I want Anthony to be happy. I adore that rake. 

The story follows Kate Sheffield and Anthony Bridgerton. Anthony feels like he is running out of time so he has to find a wife ASAP. He needs someone perfect and he found her. The only issue is the intended's older sister, Kate who is the most meddlesome and stubborn woman in all of London. Kate does not want her lovely sister to marry a rake...even a reformed rake...and that is what Anthony is. 

Awwwww I felt so bad for Anthony and Kate. The both had some trauma to deal with and they both lost a parent/parents so they had a lot of things to deal with. I really liked how they realized they needed each other so much and how perfect they were for each other. So cute!!

My only issue was their wedding and how it came to be (don't wanna spoil anything). I was hoping for something....different. I think Kate deserved more and Anthony needed to do more.  

I just adore the Bridgertons!!! They are such a great family! I love how competitive they are. The scenes with them playing that game made me laugh. Too cute!!!!

The narrator is fantastic. Her voices are awesome and she really brings this time period to life. Love her!

This was good. I can't wait to read book 3 and I can't wait for season 2 of the show to come out ;) I'll give this 3 stars.
