Bridgerton: An Offer From A Gentleman (Bridgertons Book 3): Inspiration for the Netflix Original Series Bridgerton (Bridgerton Family) Paperback – 4 February 2021
From the Back Cover
The third of Julia Quinn's bestselling and beloved Bridgerton novels, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. This is Benedict Bridgerton's story . . .
This year's most sought-after invitation must surely be that of the Bridgerton masquerade ball, to be held Monday next. Will some fortunate young lady use the mystery of a masquerade night to snare one of the eligible bachelors? - Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, May 1815
Sophie Beckett never dreamt she would sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ball - or that 'Prince Charming' would be waiting there for her! Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie had been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But that night, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she felt like royalty. Yet she knows all enchantments must end.
But Sophie has reckoned without Benedict's determined heart: he has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, for he knows this is his only chance for a fairy tale love . . .

I'd read it because it's Julia Quinn and the Bridgertons.

The story is however much more interesting and is a good change from the previous two books, the take on Cinderella is fun but merely transposes the fairy tale to the Bridgerton series without adding or taking anything away from the original. Sophie is a nice change but despite all the differences between her and Kate and Daphne she somehow falls into the same thought patterns.
As always with this series, the writing is clunky, the vocabulary american and the dialogue dreadfull.
All in all it is very readable and once again I read this in a few hours, but maybe an hour after finishing it, I have allready forgotten everything about it.
Sophie Beckett is the illegitimate child of an Earl, who has never openly acknowledged her but allowed her to live in his house as his ward. He passes away, leaving her in the care of her stepmother and two stepsisters, who have no interest in housing her, but suffer her presence, as they get a good allowance to keep her in the house.
In a Cinderella-esque twist to the story, Sophie is given the opportunity to attend one of the Season events, at Bridgerton House, during a Masquerade ball, with the housekeeper and staff being her collective Fairy Godmothers.
There she meets Benedict Bridgerton, and their two hour evening leaves them wanting more, but unable to have it.
The second part of the story follows their journey to meet once more. Will Benedict realise she is the woman in the silver gown who stole his heart, two years ago?
It's Cinderella, of course, he will, but not before plenty of other twists present themselves in the tale.
An easy read, but definitely not my favourite of the Briderton books, so far.
