"Ten Things I Love About You" [The Bevelstoke Series, Book 3] by Julia Quinn

My Book Summary : Annabel is a country girl through and through. However, when money starts getting tight after her father passes away and being the oldest girl out of eight children, it's her duty to provide for her family. This is why she’s now living in London with her grandparents trying to find a rich and titled husband, if possible, to marry her and help support her family. Yet, to her dismay, the only rich and titled man who seems to really want to marry her is her grandparent's friend, Lord Newbury. Who is also fat, old, and smelly, he wants her only for her body (especially her childbearing hips) but his main goal is to get Annabel to produce an heir for him (as his only son and previous heir has already died) since he doesn't want his title and wealth to go to his nephew, Sebastian Grey. Nevertheless, is Annabel willing to sacrifice herself and her wants out of life for her family?? Or will something happen or someone help her out to make everything all better for her?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Fun, eccentric, and infectious infatuation is just some of the words I would use to describe this delightful novel! It has so many twists it made my head spin at times but I still could not get enough! Annabel and Sebastian were a joy to read about, especially in their scenes together, along with Sebastian's creative views when it comes to his writing!

I hope at some point that the author will write a book for Lady Louisa McCann (Annabel's cousin) as she was a great secondary character who sounded like she could use some romance in her life!

I recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys comedic contemporary romances!!

She glanced in the direction of the house. She ought to go. She really ought.
"I don't bite," he assured her. "Or anything else you'd need to worry over." He sat up and patted the blanket beside him. "Have a seat."
"I'll stand," she said. Because she hadn't completely lost her sense. At least she hoped not.
"Are you certain?" He gave her a winning smile. "It's much more comfortable down here."
Said the spider to the fly. Annabel only barely managed to avoid letting out a squeak of nervous laughter. ~ within Chapter 4
"I came in third for Winslow Most Likely to Outrun a Turkey."
He did not laugh this time, but this appeared to require a valiant effort on his part. "You are a country girl," he said.
She nodded.
"Is it so very difficult to outrun a turkey?"
"Not for me."
"Go on," he urged. "I find this fascinating."
"That's right," she said. "You have no siblings."
"A lack for which I have never been so bereft as tonight. Just think of the titles I might have won."
"Grey Most Likely to Join a Pirate Ship?" she suggested, with a nod toward his patch.
"Privateer, if you please. I'm much too refined for piracy."
She rolled her eyes a bit, then offered: "Grey Most Likely to Get Lost on a Heath?"
"You are a cruel woman. I knew where I was the entire time. I was thinking Grey Most Likely to Win a Fortune at Darts." ~ within Chapter 15
