About the book: When Will Darcy proposes out of the blue, Eliza Bennet's world comes crashing down. Of course she tells him no, but why would he ask her in the first place? Haven’t they always been enemies? For the past year, Eliza has worked for Will's company, Revolutionary Innovations, as an efficiency expert. Her whole goal has been to raise profits, finish her contract, and then get out. She assumed Will wanted the same, but now she's not so sure. And more importantly, she has begun to wonder if she made a mistake in telling him no.
Jenni James, author of The Jane Austen Diaries series for teens, does it again! Now she's creating a whole new series just for adults, Austen in Love. Book #1 is a delightful adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that has all the components of Jane Austen's amazing love story, sticking true to the original theme, while taking modern liberties to give this a fresh, new twist for the clean romance genre.
My review: 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 liked Will too, I liked that he was a gentleman, and the way he cared for his sister was phenomenal. Eliza's mom was a really fun character in this book, she is kind of pushy, I wanted to not like her, because of Lizzy's mom in Pride and Prejudice, but she just seemed quirky, not annoying.
I love how this book parallels Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice while still remaining true to itself and really being a whole new story.
I LOVED this great book!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
