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?

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.)

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!

Disjointed, Frustrating and Stupid.

I had real problems finishing, I never workout the real characters of the people involved.
The demon children, who were evil periodical and beaten.
The hero who has run away from all responsibility, but angst over his childhood beatings. Is selfish, throws temper tantrums; then worries about his lack of control.
Then the heroine; well she is the worst of them all. Apparently she is 29 and has taken control of her life, yet she can't make a decision and stick to it. Brags about her experience with her brothers, but it bested by a couple of kids. She is the most immature, and despite all her posturing , allows herself to be forced into marriage. The characters jump from one position to another that it is hard to keep up. Goodness knows how it all resolved itself; I had retired and left the story to run out.

Light Romantic erotic novel

The plot doesn't have much going for it, it's an easy thing to listen to on a walk or while falling asleep. The erotic pasaagea are good and the narrator does a good job with having different voices for the different characters. I was especially interested in this book because of Eloise, however after having seen the series and not read Daphne's book I am a bit confused about the whole relation between her and Philip at the start and she doesn't have the same strong character as in the series.

Not one of her bests

I like the story, looove Eloise, but Philip is so rude and egocentric, it's hard to like him. Also the author puts so much description between dialogues that a 2 min talk becomes slow and somehow forced into a 2 hour talk with unnecessary glances, hand movements and grunts.
Also, if you don't like annoying bratty kids that cry for everything, this book won't be of your liking.

Fantastic as usual.

Another Julia Quinn audible read by Rosalyn Landon and I certainly was not disappointed. I love all Julia Quinn’s books, call me a romantic, yes I am, but her books give more than justice, they have an interesting story as well.

Wonderful

This is Eloise Bridgerton's story. She finds herself contemplating marriage to Sir Philip, a man that was previously married to her cousin but is widowed now and in search of a mother for his two children. After a year of corresponding to Eloise after she wrote to offer her condolences to him, Philip decides that she seems suitable enough to ask her to marry him. He expects her to jump at the offer but when they finally meet in person to see if they suit he is surprised that she doesn't immediately accept his proposal. Their story revolves around their time together finding out about each other and indeed finding if they would suit as a couple.
The children in this story are fabulous, their antics made me laugh so much especially with the way that the narrator, Rosalyn Landor portrays them. She had me laughing out loud often and I am sure I would look like a madwoman if anybody were to see me.
Another part of the book that I loved was when the Bridgerton brothers turned up to take Eloise home, I won't go into detail, suffice to say it is very memorable.
This book and its narration are perfect. I will definitely listen to it again, I will listen to all of the books again!

Ended up skipping the sex scenes

After reading the last few, the sex scenes are all sounding the same. I prefer the stories behind the sex stuff. Getting annoying.
