Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Author: Julia Quinn
Publisher: Avon
Date of publication: March 2016

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...

Or not.

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...

I was really happy to pick up another amusing and sweet historical romance.  Because of Miss Bridgerton is a very sweet friends to lovers story.  It's kind of a prequel to to the Bridgerton series as it takes place years before that series.  Focusing mainly on the Rokesby family. this is "Billie" and George's story.  

I had a lot of fun reading this one. The banter between George and Billie was so good and easy.  I loved them together and enjoyed watching them slowly realize their feelings for each other.  One of the  funniest scenes was the croquet scene.  It had several laugh out loud moments. The other characters in the book rounded out the story nicely. I love how the two families were so close to each other.   If you are in the mood for a story about two people who don't seem to fit finding home in each other, this is the story for you.  I definitely recommend it.
