What happens when Jane Austen’s immortal characters are thrust into 21st century Pennsylvania, with an all-male twist?
Liam Bennet has always been a good judge of character, but when William Darcy is thrown into his social circle, everything spins out of control. Darcy is proud, cold, arrogant—and strangely captivating. When Liam’s brother and Darcy’s business partner start seeing each other, Liam cannot avoid this enigmatic businessman. But does he want to?
As Liam struggles to find his identity in college and acknowledge his feelings, he must deal with the fortunes of his four brothers, his gossiping mother, and the possibility of a large inheritance that could save his family from financial ruin. Emotions come to a boil when George Wickham, a world-weary musician, stumbles into town and ignites a feud with Darcy. He threatens to expose a long-hidden past, and Liam must decide for himself who William Darcy really is and what he really wants.
This book has been sitting on my sample list ever since it was released. Just never got around to hitting that buy button.
The audiobook was just perfect, and now I’m glad I waited.
If you’ve read/watched Jane Austen’s original, you will get the tie in right away, and they are brilliantly done. If you haven’t, really?! It’s okay, you can still enjoy this very much.
This is a complete fade book, totally PG, with light petting. It also has more female roles than I normal care for in my MM books but all the charaters are so wonderfully written I just loved all of them. Liam’s best friend, Darcy’s sister. All perfect. George is just slimy enough, Darcy is just standoffish enough. The younger kids are just bratty enough.
Without giving away the plot,each character and their modern equivalent to were they stand in the story. It’s a perfect mix.
And before I knew it I was done listening to this 7 1/2 book.
The narrator, Rusty Topsfield, did a fabulous job with all the voices, men, women, British and American. job well done.
