Review: An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn


(Bridgerton #3)

Julia Quinn


Will she accept his offer before the clock strikes midnight?

Sophie Beckett never dreamed she’d be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton’s famed masquerade ball—or that “Prince Charming” would be waiting there for her! Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But now, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she feels like royalty. Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight.

Who was that extraordinary woman? 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?


A Cinderella retelling!

Cinderella, dressed in yellow
Went upstairs to kiss her fellow
Made a mistake
And kissed a snake
How many doctors
Did it take?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5…

Like this jump-rope rhyme from childhood, most readers know the Cinderella fairytale. I really loved this rendition of the fairytale. The story made me laugh, and at times it made me feel upset for the characters. Basically what I’m saying is I had the feels with this story.

I was here for this love story!!!

An Offer From a Gentleman is the 3rd book in the Bridgertons series. Benedict is the second oldest son of the Bridgerton children. There are 8 Bridgerton siblings, each one will get their own book to tell their love story. Lovers of historical romances and Cinderella retellings will find that this book hits the spot.
