This was such a fun read and starting off my year with it was a good idea!

The Duke and I follows the story of Daphne Bridgerton (and her many alphabetically named siblings) and Simon, the duke of Hastings, as they navigate their way through a London season with all of its balls, parties, eligible bachelors and ambitious mamas.

I really liked the aspect of fake courting the two main characters had going on, it's one of those tropes that I am aware is over-used but I truly enjoy it!
I also liked that the story didn't just end with a wedding and a 'they lived happily ever after' but rather half of the book was about their relationship as a married couple.

The writing style was one of this book's strong points, it was light and very fun to go through, I didn't even realize how much of the book I read until I reached the last page! It has been a while since I found myself lost in the pages of a book (not an audiobook) as such.

However, this book would've been a solid 4 or even 5 stars had it not been for one scene in particular that made me so uncomfortable I actually considered DNFing the book right then and there.

Before they get married, Simon tells Daphne that he can't have children, and she says she can bear that. However, Mr. Duke was simply pulling out because he didn't want children due to a vow he made to his late father, and since Daphne didn't know anything about the technicalities of the act of conceiving, she didn't think much of it. Until one day, realization hit her and they have this huge fight.
So far so good, but then Simon gets drunk and goes back home, they fight some more then fall asleep.
When Daphne wakes up, Simon is half drunk half asleep and she decides to seize the opportunity and try for a child without actual explicit consent from her husband.
That wasn't a romantic gesture, Daphne wasn't innocent, she simply took advantage of his weak state and in my book that qualifies as sexual assault.
The book tried to play it off by making Simon imply he gave her consent because he was turned on and such, but HE WAS NEITHER FULLY SOBER NOR AWAKE!!!!! He couldn't possibly give consent in his state, and had it been a female in that position no one would hesitate in screaming bloody murder and calling it rape!
I don't care that they're married, I don't care that he was turned on, I don't care whatever nonsense he said to her that may have been interpreted as encouragement, He was NOT sober, therefore he wasn't giving consent.
Not to mention forcing your spouse to have a child while they explicitly expressed that they don't want one is just fucked up.
I'm not saying Simon is an angel in this situation, since he lied to his goddamn spouse about his ability to have children and that's a huge no-no.
BUT that doesn't justify Daphne's actions.


Honorable mentions go to:
- Colin Bridgerton, an absolute Cinammon roll, I love him.
- Over-bearing, over-protective Anthony Bridgerton, as annoying as he can be, we adore a loving older brother.
- Violet Brudgerton, hands down the best Bridgerton of them all, she knows what's up.
- Lady Danbry, the sass that woman possesses is incredible.
- Penelope Featherington, an absolute cinnamon roll that needs to be protected at all costs.

Overall, this was a good book (minus that one scene) and I'm really looking forward to the stories of the other Bridgertons! ( )

I love Quinn's humour, her writing style and characterization. What didn't do it for me was Simon. He was such a pathological liar that he even lied to (and believed it) himself. I didn't believe he loved Daphne because he never did anything loving towards her only things he claimed were loving, but were truly entirely selfish. I do like that he changes in the end, but it is a complete 180 that happens super fast. Furthermore, he doesn't grovel, or even ask for forgiveness, let alone do anything to earn back Daphne's trust. That leaves me very unsatisfied and with a general feeling of dislike towards him. ( )

I have seen some of this series on Netflix. I enjoyed it as an audiobook, felt the narration was done very well. Especially like the two epilogues. Daphne is often quite entertaining. Does get a little graphic in sexual scenes (I prefer using my imagination to step by step descriptions - especially with an audiobook - hate to use headphones!)

Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town's marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn't as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry - though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon's heart beating a bit faster.

And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever! ( )

I'm in the rather large boat of people who were quite enjoying this until some sketchy events near the end. Characters in books often make huge mistakes, but there are some lines the heroes/heroines just shouldn't cross, and if they do, there should be significant consequences for those actions. And all of it should be conveyed in a way that makes it clear to readers that those actions were indeed very messed up. Here, it's largely missing the consequences, and I feel like that allows many readers to shrug off the actual manipulation/abuse of trust/selfishness/etc. displayed. It had some very enjoyable parts, but overall I'm disappointed in those choices (by the character and author). It's unfortunate that it's the one setting up the whole series. ( )

I'm going to be honest. I went into this book having only watched the first two episodes of the Netflix show. I also decided that I needed a cheesy romance novel in my life and thought this book would be a good fit. The first half of the book was just what I was expecting. It was cheesy and sweet and fun to listen to. Also, Rosalyn Landor does a great job with her narration of the audiobook. Then the second half of the book began and it took a twist I was not okay with. Honestly, I found myself finding this book less than okay starting after the dual was confirmed between Simon and Anthony. This is why I bumped this rating down to two stars. There is a situation between Simon and Daphne that was just not okay in the slightest, and it honestly was just pushed off to the side as if it weren't despicable. If you don't want spoilers, stop reading this review now! Daphne rapes Simon and tries to become pregnant with his child when he clearly is in the wrong state of mind (he is drunk during the scene) and cannot consent. This is something that I found rather disturbing as it just is brushed aside and blamed on her ignorance. She knew he didn't want kids. She knew he was drunk. She knew he couldn't say no in his state. She did it anyway. Overall, I was highly disappointed with this book. ( )
