My Persuasion

About the book: When Caroline Bingley broke off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth seven years ago, she realized she’d made the biggest mistake of her life. When he shows up again, she knows she doesn’t deserve him, but it doesn’t stop her from wishing things were different. 

The last thing Rick wants is to get caught up in Caroline drama again—one broken heart was enough. To prove he’s over her, he starts to date her sister, Louisa. Unfortunately, the plan backfires as he finds himself closer to Caroline than ever before, and he has to admit, he’s never really gotten over her. 

This modern, tangled retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion is a fun, clean romance with witty dialogue and forgiving hearts.

My review: You really can't go wrong with a Jenni James romance. I love the way that she writes these. The characters are always great and the plots are always compelling. This one was no different.

I really liked Caroline. I was really amazed at her strength of character. She was always working herself to death for her super ungrateful family, including paying all of the bills for everything with her very own money. I was amazed by not only how ungrateful her family was, but how rude, inconsiderate and selfish to Caroline and really everyone around them.

I loved Caroline's reaction, when instead of the employee she was expecting to come help in the clothing shop she runs, in walks her ex-fiance. The one her family made her dump even though she was completely in love with him. Worst. Day. Ever. She is amazing though, she does her best to keep doing her work. And deal with him at the same time. And to top things off, Frederick - that's the ex-fiance - decides to date her terrible, selfish sister Louisa. Right in front of Caroline.

I loved the way that even though Rick was dating Louisa, he is really always watching out for Caroline. Little things like getting her medicine and soup at the store when she's sick, making her lunch and dinners, and making sure she gets a much needed vacation. 

This is a cute, fun, quick read that I enjoyed reading. I'm always looking for another book/novella by this author!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
