They say that a smart person learns from her mistakes, but a truly smart person learns from other people’s mistakes.”Excerpt from:
An Offer From A Gentleman
by Julia Quinn
Synopsis From Goodreads
Ever since that magical night, a radiant vision in silver has blinded Benedict to the attractions of any other—except, perhaps this alluring and oddly familiar beauty dressed in housemaid’s garb whom he feels compelled to rescue from a most disagreeable situation. He has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, but this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. Yet, if he offers his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?
I couldn’t get enough of Bridgerton after finishing the second novel, so I chose to read the third. I suspected in my thoughts before reading it that it would be about Benedict, and I was correct; it was all about him and how he would meet his equal.
Benedict was virtually invisible to me throughout the first season of Bridgerton. I couldn’t understand his character, but in this book, I was correct since he felt the same way about himself. Nonetheless, I was relieved that this third novel was entirely about him.
I genuinely enjoy fairy tales, and the tale of Cinderella served as the basis for this one. In reality, there are many similarities between the two since the female character had two stepsisters as well as a wicked stepmother, who I found to be really annoying. After finishing the book, I looked for reviews and found several that were critical of it due to how much it resembled the aforementioned fairy tale. However, I thoroughly loved the book. I could sense their romance and the buildup of desire.
Previously, I didn’t like romance books, but lately, I’ve started to like them. It was wonderful to experience the reality of true love in the face of their differences and social standing. Without a doubt, I’ll read the book following this one. It was great fun for me.😊
