When He Was Wicked: Review

When He Was Wicked
(Bridgerton Series #6)
by Julia Quinn


In every life there is a turning point.
A moment so tremendous, so sharp and breathtaking, that one knows one's life will never be the same. For Michael Stirling, London's most infamous rake, that moment came the first time he laid eyes on Francesca Bridgerton.

After a lifetime of chasing women, of smiling slyly as they chased him, of allowing himself to be caught but never permitting his heart to become engaged, he took one look at Francesca Bridgerton and fell so fast and hard into love it was a wonder he managed to remain standing. Unfortunately for Michael, however, Francesca's surname was to remain Bridgerton for only a mere thirty-six hours longer — the occasion of their meeting was, lamentably, a supper celebrating her imminent wedding to his cousin.

But that was then . . . Now Michael is the earl and Francesca is free, but still she thinks of him as nothing other than her dear friend and confidant. Michael dares not speak to her of his love . . . until one dangerous night, when she steps innocently into his arms, and passion proves stronger than even the most wicked of secrets . . .

First Line: In every life there is a turning point.

Favorite Line(s): n/a

My Review: These two I felt had the most chemisty out of all the characters I have read in this series. It was raw... it was real... it was believable!! I found myself having feelings for them as individuals as well as them together as a couple. They played off each other perfectly and I loved how they would provoke each other in play in their daily talk. As for the love scenes, do yourself a favor and make sure you have a glass of wine or margarita near by! Wit woo!
