Read for the URR New Year 2018 Reading Challenge Animal Lovers Romance Well Okay not really But there s a fat corgi Newton and he s by far the best thing this book has to offerDo ou remember that scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton tells us how much fun Brad Pitt has inserting porn into cartoon movie reels I think something like this is happening with Julia uinn s Bridgertons series You think ou re reading a charmingly sweet witty and sexy historical romance then all of a sudden the hero deliberately steps on the heroine s hand and when she fights him off he kicks her in the stomach for good measure Now MY READING LIFE IS FILLED WITH reading life is filled with maimings and guttings I do love my fictional violence stepping on someone s hand Puh leaseOnly maybe not when I m reading a fluffy historical romance ou know Or at the very least I d expect the author to recognize the violent nature of the scene she just described Which really doesn t seem to be the case with Julia uinn who airily writes about wives taking advantage of their husbands drunk stupor to get pregnant despite the men s unwillingness to have kids in book 1 of the series and viscounts kicking The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action young women in their stomach Normally Anthony would die before striking a woman but this truly seemed to be an exceptional case Well sure Isn t there always a normally he d never BUT There s just no tonal change between such a scene and the rest of book which relies heavily on the cat and dog relationship of the two leads and on their banters and bickerings too bad all their suabbles aren t even particularly funny in my opinion because Anthony viscount and rake extraordinaire always has the upper hand with Kate the strong headed wallflower he s trying to win over so he can go ahead with his plan to marry her beautiful sister don t ask And Anthony being the usual brand of Alpha male who would be much at home in a Neanderthal romance than in a Victorian one doesn t really have to be particularly witty to shut Kate up as long as he invades her personal space and breathes close to her ear he wins whatever argument they were having by reducing her into a shivering mass of hormones But whatever that s beside the point the point being when I read about a male romantic lead kicking the heroine and stepping on her hand and especially if such behavior is never addressed explored or somehow explained but is treated as a funny interlude I just know that no matter what happens next I m not going to enjoy myself any What can I say Maybe I m just way prudish than I thought Maybe some Tyler Durden type is effectively sabotaging Julia uinn s books by adding jarring scenes to her otherwise funny stories Maybe uinn really believes this stuff is hilarious maybeou think so too To each its own right But as for me I m so outta here 35 StarsOverall Opinion This was a cute hate to love
