About the book: As the daughter of a well-known senator, Summer Knight is all too familiar with the nasty side of politics. She’s always stayed out of the drama, until an incident involving her fellow Mormons drives her out of her hometown—and out of the Church. What she needs is a change of scene, and sunny California seems like just the place. Enter Benson Hardy. He’s just her type—until she finds out who he is. Not only is Benson a nephew to her father’s political rival, he’s also a devout member of the Church. The last thing Summer wants is to be mixed up in politics—or religion. But Benson challenges her like no one else, asking the tough questions about her inactivity. Though their incompatibility is clear, their connection is undeniable, and soon Summer finds the embers of her faith reigniting. Just as it seems that the pair might be on the road to romance, a series of embarrassing misunderstandings—and the appearance of a handsome charmer determined to sweep Summer off her feet—knock the couple completely off course. As Summer finds herself at a crossroads, she must decide if she’s willing to set her pride aside for a shot at true love.
My review: Wow, I really loved this book! It's a modern day twist on Pride and Prejudice and I didn't want to put it down!
Summer Knight, I loved everything about her character. I loved how she was talking about taking a "break" from Church and felt like there was nothing at all wrong with that. But at the same time, she still allowed her visiting teacher to come see her and eventually, on her own terms went back to Church. I loved the way her parents pretty much guilt her into having her two sisters come and live with her and her roommate, Allie, in California, even though she really doesn't want to have to deal with babysitting them. I loved her voice, she's a great character and I loved seeing the whole story through her eyes.
And then there's Benson, the character that you love to hate in this book, even as you see Summer falling for him. I loved the way he was always true to himself and the way he was always looking out for and trying to help Summer, even when it seemed as though there would be no way for them ever to be together.
I loved the plot of this book! I loved looking for ways that it is like Pride and Prejudice, but I really loved the modern take on it as well. This is an amazingly well written book that I loved reading! Hoping for more from Brittany Larsen soon!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
