    One thought on “My Pride, His Prejudice”

    1. Fun clean Pride and Prejudice retelling set in Utah. The story starts with a marriage proposal. I honestly felt a little lost for the first few pages but as I kept reading I saw why the author started the book that way. We were as in the dark about the proposal as Eliza was. How could the man she considers to be her enemy be proposing to her? I enjoyed reading this one and watching how the characters relationship develops as they came to understand each other better. You need not be a Pride and [...]

    2. When Trifecta Books asked me to revamp modern Jane Austen again, this time for their Sweet & Clean Romance Collection, I couldn't say no. Welcome to Book 1, of AUSTEN IN LOVE. The challenge was telling such an incredible Jane Austen story in the allotted short 40K words I was given for the Sweet & Clean Romance Collection. It was challenge but what a crazy, fun journey this was to write! I'm completely in love with Will Darcy and the adorable Eliza Bennet--and her mother! Ahhh! I hope yo [...]

    3. I have never read "Pride and Prejudice". Shocking I know. But I'm the "Sherlock" type of girl so I have never been a fan of simpering ladies.This book started when Will Darcy was proposing to Eliza. On her doorstep. In the middle of the morning. This is taking the word "surprise" to a whole new level. Of course she said no seeing that Will is a jerk to her even though he is her boss. I think that this story is more like a 2nd book. It would have been better if I get to see Will's dark side. I wa [...]

    4. Maybe it's my mood but I just didn't love this book. First off I didn't like that the names were the same as in Pride and Prejudice. What was the point of not letting her read the email?! That was weird. And the way Darcy talked was sooo weird. A rich 30 something year old man doesn't talk like a teenager. It was weird to me.

    5. Confession I have never read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I know I know there are some of you that are probably yelling at me right now. But I have tried several times in fact. But each time I did I would fall asleep. I just couldn't get through it! But that doesn't mean I am not a Pride and Prejudice fan. I fell in love with it the first time my aunt made me watch the BBC version with Colin Firth and Elizabeth Ehle. I swore up and down that I did NOT want to watch it and I was only doing [...]

    6. This was a cute read and fun modern adaptation of Pride & Prejudice. I've become a fan of Austen reimaging's and thought this one was really well done. It managed to stick with the original version, yet be unique and fresh. I think anyone would enjoy this chick lit even if they've never read the original.I liked Eliza and Will (at times they sometimes came across younger than they were), they had fun banter and good chemistry. This is a novella and was a fun escape. I'd recommend it to anyon [...]

    7. DNF at 55%. This was a huge let down as I like her YA books. This book felt liked the first few chapters were cut from it. It starts at the proposal so there's no story development, you're just dropped into the middle of the story. It's only at 20% that you realise Bingley and Jane are in it, and they've already broken up. I didn't like either Eliza or Will. Both felt like they had multiple personalities, especially Eliza. One minute she would be hating on him and threatening to murder and LITER [...]

    8. This was a cute, clean, quick read that I finished in a couple of hours. I liked the story but… the Darcy figure was so OOC [out of character] that I had trouble identifying with him. He was a bit immature and his behavior just seemed off. We had Georgia as his sister, who was dealing with very modern issues. Darcy needed Eliza’s help with his sister. This brought them together so they could work on their differences and issues. Mrs. Bennet was a hoot. I liked it.

    9. Will Darcy is Salt Lakes hottest and wealthiest bachelor, but that doesn't mean Eliza Bennett wants to marry him - and so when he asks, she refuses. But when he needs her help after his young sister, Georgia, runs off with George Wickham, she can't refuse him. This is a fun, modern-day re-telling of Pride and Prejudice!Content: Very cleanSource: amazon

    10. I have such mixed feelings about this book. Anyway here it goes.Cons: Eliza. She didn't change. She was such a hypocrite! She's all complaining about how Collin emotionally abused her and said nothing nice yet the WHOLE book she is being rude to will even AFTER he turns all nice. Ugh. It just didn't feel like a healthy relationship. Also it felt backwards. They were kissing before they had feelings. WHAT??? She's still not sure if she even likes him as a person and she KISSES him??? Maybe it's j [...]

    11. A Refreshing Take on Pride and PrejudiceI've loved Jenni James' Austen retellings for teenagers, and was really excited about this new series. It did not disappoint! Eliza Bennett works for Will Darcy as a consultant, improving the productivity and management of his company. What was really different about this retelling was it's starting point. We come into the story at Darcy's proposal, and get a little of the back story along the way.I loved Eliza and Will together. I loved the banter, the fl [...]

    12. This was cute and fun! It started off feeling a little rushed (or maybe I felt like I was missing something), but that's just because it started off in the middle of their story. I also thought Eliza and Will sometimes seemed younger than they actually were, but they were still enjoyable characters!All in all, I enjoyed this oned if you enjoy light, fun romantic comedies, you most likely will as well!

    13. Recency RemakeHere's another entry for those of us who just can't get enough of "Pride and Prejudice." I can't say I LOVED this re-imagining, but if you're a die hard, it's worth a read.

    14. I picked this up for a reading challengeI needed a book set in Utah. As a book it just didn't do anything great for me. I did like the modern take on Pride and Prejudice the concept was great but the execution was not my cup of tea. It is very possible it will be yours.

    15. This was a cute, fluffy, fun take on P & P. It's a shorter book and I kind of wish it were longer (full length) but what I got was a fun distraction.

    16. Horrible!!! Señora, no cree que es hora de probar ideas propias y dejar el constante homenaje a Jane Austen?, porque lo único que hace es hundir clásicos de la literatura que todas amamos.

    17. I've wanted to read a P&P spin-off for a long, long time now, but haven't pretty much because I had a feeling they would be really cheesy and eye-roll worthy. Then I was sick and I decided to get Kindle Unlimited and go on a reading spree while recovering. This book was cheesy, but it was also funny and interesting. It's kinda like a fairytale retelling, you know what's going to happen cause you know the story, but it keeps you reading anyway, so you can discover HOW it happens. The reason f [...]

    18. I like how the author put her own spin on the classic to bring it into the present, but I missed the connection between "Lizzie" and "Mr. Darcy". I don't know if it was because of the narration or how the story was told, but I didn't really connect with the characters or story.

    19. Perfectly Sappy. Loved it! Clean wholesome romance. Ms. James’ imagery is amazing. Feels like I’m in the book with the characters. Fast read. Loved the characters’ thinking bubbles. So funny. Laughed out loud several times. Cheesy which is why I really like it.

    20. So this book is odd. This is a modern P&P set in Utah. While it is never stated that the characters are Mormon none drink alcohol or coffee. Just lots of herbal tea, water and hot cocoa. Will Darcy is a multimillionaire businessman who one night completely out of the blue proposes to his company's Efficiency Expert Eliza Bennet. Who of course turns him down because she hates him. You see they fight constantly. She insults him and his way of doing business and he insults her clothes and abili [...]

    21. For what it is worth, I loved this retelling. I liked how it instantly started at the proposal. If you know the original story then it is refreshing to simply jump right to this point. Especially considering how James has already written this story in teenage form. I liked how she decided to show Wickham as still the villain, but we got to see Darcy save his sister instead of it being a past memory. I also liked the twist she did with Collin too. I just love it all.

    22. I love the original Pride & Prejudice, but always struggled with some of the most obnoxious characters like Elizabeth's mother and Lydia. Jenni did an amazing job of making the story her own, twisting things up to make it appropriately modern and delightful, not to mention ironing out the awkward characters. Truly a delight to read.

    23. I am a fan of clean romances and thoroughly enjoy the works of Jenni James. This story opens where most romances end – Will Darcy proposes to Eliza Bennet. As I read the first few pages my first thoughts were that this was totally outside the realm of reality, but as the plot thickened I discovered this was totally in keeping with the clueless Will Darcy character at this point in time. I could see the parallels with Jane Austen’s masterpiece, but I think the story works better if you ignore [...]

    24. This book is great! I loved it from the very moment I started reading and I didn't want to put it down, even after I read the last word. I love how this book starts with the proposal, Eliza has no idea why Will would be proposing to her, and she has no qualms about telling him so. I loved the spunky Eliza, and I love the way that she changes throughout the book. I love that she's able to continue working with Will and even help him when his world gets crazy and he needs to find his sister. I lik [...]

    25. The price is right for a quick, novella-length, modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. ($2.99) The author has a fun take on our classic story but there were moments when it wasn't executed well, due mostly to the rapid plot progression - we begin the story at Darcy's proposal instead of having any build up beforehand. Some of the conversation was odd - you had two grown adults using words and language patterns that would be more common of two thirteen year olds. The plot was predictable, despi [...]

    26. I LOVE JENNI JAMES' BOOKS! Everything she writes is FANTASTIC!This is a DARLING story! A PERFECT twist on the Jane Austen book!While you still get the story of a family with unwed daughters and you read of Jane and Elizabeth and of course there is Mr. Bingley and Mr. DarcyThis story is set in modern times.But love is love no matter what and sometimes people do marry for greed of someone else's money.And sometimes girls and boys (and men and women) just don't understand what is really going on in [...]
