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...

First Thought when Finished: OH MY how I swooned over Billie and George’s romance in Because of Miss Bridgerton!
Quick Thoughts: I flat out loved the start of the Rokesbys series! Billie is exactly the type of leading lady I love in historicals: quirky, different, smart, and strong but socially a bit awkward. George was the perfect match for her in every way! I really liked their slow burn romance but don’t worry there are lots of sparks along the way. If you like smart women and men who often say the wrong thing but mean well–then you will love this. Plus, you don’t have to read the Bridgertons in order to jump right in since this is a prequel. This is a great starting place!

I freaking loved Rosalyn’s narration of Because of Miss Bridgerton. She brought a lot of personality to all the characters! She made them stand out and I laughed more than once along with them. I highly recommend this on audio.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
