Publisher's Summary

Sir Phillip knew that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he'd proposed, figuring that she'd be homely and unassuming, and more than a little desperate for an offer of marriage. Except...she wasn't. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quiet, and when she stopped talking long enough to close her mouth, all he wanted to do was kiss her... and more. Did he think she was mad?

Eloise Bridgerton couldn't marry a man she had never met! But then she started thinking...and wondering...and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match. Except...he wasn't. Her perfect husband wouldn't be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was a large brute of a man, rough and rugged, and totally unlike the London gentlemen vying for her hand. But when he smiled...and when he kissed her...the rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn't help but wonder...could this imperfect man be perfect for her?

An Entertaining Listen

This is a fine addition to the Bridgerton series. I completely enjoyed myself. Rosalyn Landon is good, as always.

It's fine. I guess.

Rosalyn Landors does the voice of every hero and heroine the same way in each book so every Bridgerton novel raally runs together. Her male voices are deeply affected and far below her register. if you thinm its bad at the beginning of the book.. wait for the love scenes. Eeee. as for the book itself, not my favourite. Phillip is very unlikable and there are just too many children in it.

Very Enjoyable! Listened in 1 day

If you could sum up To Sir Phillip, with Love in three words, what would they be?

Him: Tall, hunky, handsome -- Her: fiesty, beautiful, understanding

What did you like best about this story?

Synopsis: Sir Phillip Crane, 30 years old, has recently lost his wife of 8 years to severe, chronic depression. In those days they called it melancholy. His wife attempts suicide by drowning in a near frozen lake and dies several days later. The Crane's have disrespectful and undisciplined 7 year old twins who have been left to the care of numerous nannies and nurses. Mrs. Crane's never married cousin Eloise, age 28, starts a kind letter conversation with Sir Phillip for 1 year following the mourning of his wife, whom he did not love.

Eloise shows up at his doorstep one evening, the children playing terrible pranks on her, Phillip yelling at them. The next day the only way Phillip can stop her mouth from talking incessantly is to kiss her! And the romance begins! Eloise a force to be reckoned with and just what Phillip and the children have needed so badly.

This story had me chuckling at Eloise and Phillip's banter numerous times, and laughing out loud while they were having an argument in the greenhouse when "her mouth was moving and no words came out." There are 2 scenes of sex and they were pretty hot!

It ends happy and satisfying, albeit a bit quick, I wanted the story to go on.

Any additional comments?

This is a good Austen Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett type story.

Another good in the collection but...💜

...the narration! My gosh, I swear. Rosalyn Landor could read the ingredients on a bag of dog food and keep people fully engaged!

This book was fast and sweet. No real major undying conflict, just the tell tale of how Eloise and Phillip ended up together. Nice, lightweight story. There were some funny moments and even some tear jerkers. The story did touch on what is now known as clinical depression, compounded with post partum depression, and the unpleasant ending that those can evoke. It wasn’t heavy in the stotyline, but it was present.

Rosalyn, as I mentioned above, is a phenomenal narrator, and one who many adore. She did a great job in this, and I actually forgot on occasion, that it was one person reading!

I think this was part of a 2 for 1 sale, and definitely worth it for that, but as much as I enjoyed the story, I’m not sure it would be worth an entire credit. It was a super fast story and it caught me off guard that it was over when it ended. Lol

(Edited to note, there is a slight difference in this with the Netflix version of Brigertons in that Marina, Sir Phillips first wife, is a Brigerton cousin, not a Featherington cousin.)

No second epilogue

Story was good but I have to say I missed the second epilogue I even researched to see if there was an epilogue for this book in Quinn’s Happily Ever After book and there was so kinda confused it wasn’t included like all the others.

Good Book, Not complete

I enjoyed this story as much as the rest of the books in this series . The writing and performance were as expected. However, the second epilogue was not included in this book.

Best of the first five in the series

I have a close friend who struggles with abusive impulses that she learned from her father’s abuse of her. My family also struggles with depression. Those aspects of this story really hit me hard. This love story made me cry.

Much thanks to Ms. Quinn for her writing and Ms. Landor for her usual amazing performance.

Just ok

This is probably my least favorite story. It never felt like the couple fell in love with each other let alone desired each other. The tension that a great story was lacking in the end it felt like rhe heroine just settled.

Disappointing

Eloise is one of my favorite characters in the Bridgerton series and she deserved a better story and husband! Phillip was a self-absorbed jerk.

Rosalyn Landor did an amazing job!
