Review First Comes Scandal

She was given two choicesGeorgiana Bridgerton isn’t against the idea of marriage She'd just thought she'd have some say in the matter But with her reputation hanging by a thread after she's abducted for her dowry Georgie is given two options live out her life as a spinster or marry the rogue who has ruined her lifeEnter option number threeAs the fourth son o. I am struggling a little with how to come at this review There were things I liked about this book But in many ways it also left me wantingI enjoy Julia uinn and absolutely adored the first book in this series This is another Bridgerton preuel and it centers on Georgina and Nicolas Rokesby These two were old family friends thrown together in marriage after Georgina was ruinedThings started out well enough I liked both characters In fact I continued to like them both throughout the book Nicholas is a relatively serious guy who really only wants to be a doctor and despite his shock at his father s reuest to marry Georgina he really takes it pretty well And did I mention he s a virgin Georgina meanwhile is looking to find her own place after a childhood plagued by illness and a well meaning family Her ruination was in no way her fault and though she doesn t want to marry out of pity she will never get a better offer than the one she got from NicholasAll of this is fine and they move into the marriage pretty easily I kept waiting for the conflict And waited some But there was none And maybe that is a plus for someone looking for a really low angst romance But for me it was kind of a letdown Everything just flowed so long and it all works out so easily No It s not that it works out There is nothing to work out It all just happensThat s not to say there were not a few cute diversions along the way I loved the carriage ride and the cats There s some good banter too But the ending felt terribly rushed Maybe because I felt it was missing the second act Missing something vital that never materialized At least it was missing something vital for meYour mileage may vary It s not a bad book not at all But it is not my favorite from this author ARC provided by publisher

First Comes Scandal

F an earl Nicholas Rokesby is prepared to chart his own course He has a life in Edinburgh where he's close to completing his medical studies and he has no time or interest to find a wife But when he discovers that Georgie Bridgerton his literal girl next door is facing ruin he knows what he must doA marriage of convenienceIt might not have been the most romant. 15 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewGeorgiana was kidnapped by a fortune hunter but even though she managed to save herself her reputation is in tatters Nicholas is called down from medical school in Edinburgh by his father who orders him to marry their neighbor and Nicholas childhood friend Georgiana It s a marriage of convenience but a close uarters carriage ride with a grumpy cat might turn it into a marriage of love There is only one thing to be done his father said You must marry her First Comes a Scandal is fourth in the Rokebys series but I think you could jump into the series here it would probably be even better to read the Bridgerton series before this Rokebys is a preuel to Briderstons and heroes from the first couple books in the Bridgerton series make an almost center stage showing in this As much as I enjoyed seeing the heroes as little kids it was too much Instead of focusing on the leads of this story the little Bridgertons got too much of the spotlight it started to feel like a cheap trick to get readers to like this book trading on the Bridgerton love If you haven t read the Bridgerton series you d probably be bored and think a good chunk of the first half was filler She doesn t need your time She needs your name I m a sucker for little sisterbig brother s friend trope but this was a little different with neither having a hidden or long standing crush on the other and we don t get much of Nicholas and Edmund Georigana s brother friendship Not getting much unfortunately was a problem I had for the majority of the story I had a problem with feeling Nicholas and Georgiana were strangers to me and to each other It wasn t until after the 50% mark that our two get married and then it is a carriage ride to Edinburgh However instead of scenes of these two bonding and dialogue to provide emotional and relationship building blocks we get pointless cat drama medical dramas needing Nicholas and the story just seemed to want to focus on everything but Nicholas and Georgiana He d been married a day and he d barely even kissed her He was going to have to do something about that The sentence structure had a tendency to veer to shorter and this made a good amount feel choppy but even though I didn t feel engaged with the story or characters the pace did ping pong through pretty uickly There was also a couple times where Nicholas or Georgiana expressed themselves a certain way that felt too casual of verbiage not creating the historical feel I tend to look for when reading this sub genre This was also set in the late 1700s and besides some talk of hoop skirts to visit the ueen it was indistinguishable from Regency set romances She liked being near him She liked his uiet strength his sense of purpose And when his hands had been on her hips even just to help her down from the saddle she d liked the way it had made her feel like she was his Georgiana and Nicholas felt like strangers to me and therefore I wasn t invested or felt any emotional attachment to the conclusion of their romance If you like some slapstick humor there were a couple scenes when they take their carriage ride that might help drawn you into the story than I There were couple moments where I felt a hint of the chemistry between Georgiana and Nicholas but they were so buried in the numerous insignificant scenes the author decided to add that it couldn t save the story for me I went into this anticipating of a focus on exploring their marriage of convenience and instead got a grumpy cat in a hammock I buddy read this for uotes and comments while I read First Comes Scandal buddy read

Ic of proposals but Nicholas never thought she'd say no Georgie doesn't want to be anyone's sacrifice; and besides they could never think of each other as anything than childhood friendsor could theyBut as they embark upon their unorthodox courtship they discover a new twist to the age old rhyme First comes scandal then comes marriage But after that comes love. I had read and loved some of the previous books so I was than eager to get to this one I liked Georgie and Nicholas They re both good loyal people with a passion for knowledge and they ve known each other for what seems like forever I enjoyed their family background and there s a scene with the two family butlers that was absolutely the best part of the book Plot wise it was fairly non existent The so called conflict was their arguing about the proposal and after that was solved I was nearly halfway through the book The entire book was a gentle meandering I did enjoy everyone s lack of experience but the chemistry was a bit lacking and the leap from friendship to lust to love was a bit telling instead of showing Overall it was a great set up with characters I did like however I wanted a lot from it Huge thanks to Avon for providing the arc free of charge

    Whether or not you like this book will be determined by 2 things is banter enough to get you through a 300 page romance with basically zero plot? It's good banter it's J's strong suit But when I say there is no plot this is a marriage of convenience story where they don't decide to get married until page 100 and then they do get

    DNF at 20%I was in the mood for a historical and thought I'd try an upcoming J release even though I haven't read anything new by her in years Well apparently there was a reason for that I have a ridiculous amount of nostalgia for J's backlist but the magic just isn't here any Either I've changed a lot as a reader or J has changed as an autho
