    I should rate this book a 4 or 5 because the writing is so good. Julia Quinn writes great dialogue that is smart and funny every time. And, the book was enjoyable enough that I didn't want to put it down.BUT..I just couldn't get over the fact that he kidnapped her in the first place. He really didn't have to, even though he continually acts like he was forced to do it. He's a spy, and can't let her go when she discovers his secret "pirate cove" b...

    This series by Julia Quinn has been my favorite from her. The books have been absolutely stealing my heart. There wasn't any doubt in my mind that I would be picking up The Other Miss Bridgerton. Like with the previous books, this was a feel-good story with a lovely couple.Poppy Bridgerton was undeniably the star of this book. She was sweet and charming and so kind. While visiting a friend in Dorset, she stumbles upon a cave where she discovers p...

    I pick up each new Julia Quinn expecting to feel the magic that I did when I first read her books more than a decade ago. Instead, she has become increasingly formulaic to the point where I can predict "this is where the first kiss happens" and "this is where they fool around" and "oops, I have X pages left, so they must have sex about ... yup here we are" and "we're at an epilogue, which means BABIES. NOTHING BUT BABIES."I feel like my tastes ar...

    After loving the first in this series, then feeling rather meh about the second, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the third. But the blurb - high seas! Pirate-y adventure! Bridgerton heroine! - I was pretty excited to give it a try. I'm so glad I did.JQ is back in full Bridgerton glory. Her trademark witty banter and complex characters seem fresh - a new set of characters within the same family we've all loved for years. I loved how Poppy ...

    december 18: it was delightful, surprising, compelling, delightful AND SO ROMANTIC. oh yes, i love it! from book one, andrew looked like the perfect romance hero and he delivered just that, simple and utter perfection. and poppy was a splendid heroine and a great match for andrew. the banter scenes were so well written, the adventure storyline was good (surprisingly interesting to follow and really good for a romance) and the two characters were ...

    Archetypical JQ book - sweet and funny and not terribly angsty. It was just a matter of time before the inquisitive and indomitable Poppy Bridgerton's curiosity got her into trouble. While exploring caves near her friend's home after expertly ditching her assigned maid/chaperone, she finds far more than she intended and consequently gets napped by pirate smugglers keen to protect their secrets. Only these pirates are unlike any other pirates she ...

    4.25 stars!(Tropes: Pirates(ish), Love-hate Relationship, Mistaken/Hidden identity, Forced Proximity)I read this book in one sitting. ONE SITTING. I had nearly forgotten how much I ADORE JQ’s books. And after a woeful string of mostly terrible historical romances, coming back to the Bridgertons was a DELIGHT! It’s easy, breezy, romantic, funny, and mostly angst free.*****“Captain Andrew James, at your service. Welcome aboard the Infinity....

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Julia Quinn is the master of light hearted and fun historical romances and she once again proves this in the latest installment of the Rokesby series. Who else could make being chloroformed, kidnapped by pirates, kept captive on a ship and then kidnapped again on foreign soil a fun and romantic rom...

    4.5 starsI had read and enjoyed the previous book in this series and loved this synopsis, so I was pretty eager to start it. I absolutely adored Poppy and Andrew. She’s sassy and curious and is outspoken. He’s just as sassy and charming and and wants people to think he’s a bit of a scoundrel, but is quite a marshmallow. Together they have delicious banter and button pushing and fantastic conversation. Plot wise, it was good. Of course, ther...

    Oh Poppy! I absolutely adored her! She was witty and smart and gave Andrew a run for his money. I loved watching them fall in love despite the circumstances that they met in. I don't want to say too much because I want you all to read this...and you know you can't go wrong with Julia Quinn :)

    How sweet and adventurous!As always with Julia Quinn's books, I loved the couples' banter. I appreciated how the male mc wasn't some brutish non communicative douche, but rather very engaging and personable and clever. There were also no blurred lines in terms of consent and I genuinely felt that the couple was good together, bringing out the best in one another. Their conversations started out a little stiff/ pedantic for me but they improved ma...

    The Other Miss Bridgerton started off great with Poppy being abducted by two pirates and taken to Captain Andrew Rokesby ship and there held captive. The rational part of me does think this whole kidnapping thing is crazy. And, yes Andrew is now a real pirate, and he's a gentleman. Still, it's still kidnapping. Then again, I do read more crime and thriller novels than romance, so kidnapping for me is seldom a good thing when it comes to books. An...

    Lovely story totally focused on the MC’s relationshipWhat I loved the most about this book is that they are stranded in a ship and therefore the whole book is about them and their relationship and how they get to know and love each other.I usually don’t like pirate plots, but this was a lovely read.

    Poppy Bridgerton is dragging her heels on the marriage mart. She isn’t about to settle for just any man who asks her – only someone who can match her quick wit and will treat her as an equal could catch her interest and none of her suitors have even elicited the slightest glimmer of attraction from her. Taking a break from London, she goes to the Dorset to visit a friend. While exploring the coast, Poppy discovers a smugglers cave…which wou...

    I just loved this story. After what I felt like was a fail for Julia Quinn's previous book in the Rokesby series, she has come back with a truly delightful historical that hit all the right notes for me. I loved the hero and heroine in this story. Poppy is intelligent and adventurous, the perfect heroine to find herself kidnapped and stowed away on a privateer's ship, heading for foreign lands. Andrew is also intelligent and valiant and a gentlem...

    This was fun! I enjoyed Poppy and Andrew a lot, and generally found myself more into this one than any of the previous books in the series. The ending was a little underwhelming/didn’t work as well as the rest of the book, but otherwise, this was an enjoyable read.

    Coffee Dates with The Other Miss BridgertonFirst Date: From the start I adored Poppy Bridgerton. It is quickly clear that she is sharp, feisty and looking for a partner who is her equal intellectually. Poppy is exploring the coastal shore while visiting a family friend in Dorset. Of course she has left her maid to drink tea and stumbles into trouble while exploring a cave. All of which result in her being kidnapped and taken aboard a ship. It...

    "It won't be just a kiss, Poppy. It could never be just a kiss between us." Galley provided by publisher(Almost) no one writes slowburn historical romances like Julia Quinn does. Not to mention she does it with some of my favourite characters ever, and The Other Miss Bridgerton is no different in this respect.The Other Miss Bridgerton is Andrew Rokesby's book.

    I can’t believe I’m about to type this, because I’ve loved Julia Quinn’s books for years, but… I found this one boring. I’m not the biggest fan of romantic pirates at the best of times, but since Andrew isn’t even close to being a pirate (or a privateer really, since he’s more of a merchant-smuggler) I thought I’d risk it anyway. Which would have been fine, except that over half the book takes place in a single cabin on board a ...

    The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is book Three in the Rokesbys series. This is the story of Poppy Bridgerton and Andrew James Rokesby. I have read the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Poppy is visiting a friend but when she had gotten some down time her curious nature kicks in and she takes a walk where she finds some caves. But she is caught by what she thinks are smugglers who take her t...

    Here are some of my thoughts:• A lot of bantering in this one. I like seeing Poppy and Andrew interact with one another and get to know one another. This definitely seems more dialogue-oriented than plot-oriented for a romance. I feel like most books are the latter, so it’s good to see a solid foundation here of two character simply talking and connecting.• I love Poppy’s interaction with Billy (he’s adorable), Green, and Brown. However...
