I’d been anticipating getting to this book and it did not disappoint! I had a soft spot for Penelope in the earlier books of the series so I really wanted her to have a great HEA. I enjoyed how the story built up through Penelope and Colin’s friendship and history. Their banter was funny and cute and I loved how Colin treated her.
35 minutes into this I was already in tears. I wrote this review in my head several times as I was listening to the audiobook but now that I’ve finished I don’t really have the words I need. THUG is powerful and eye-opening and heartbreaking. The things these kids and this community go through is incredibly hard to face but it’s important to get a different perspective and to understand. Even if you think you know, you have no idea. Everyone needs to read this. I’ll even buy you a copy if I have to.
This is book 5 in the Bridgerton’s series. I’ve been reading them all the last month or two, catching up on the series since I hadn’t read it until now. This is Eloise’s book, which I’d been looking forward to. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it as much as I expected I would. There were certain things about Phillip that bugged me. I had to keep reminding myself that this is historical fiction. I am happy to see Eloise happy though. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes! I loved Cooper and Violet. They were funny, sexy, and adorable. Can’t wait to see more of these characters.
