Book Summary:

Ever since Emma Pierce read Pride and Prejudice, she’s been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So when it turns out that what her boyfriend Blake wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, only to find her job threatened when her boss brings in a consultant to help her expand the business to the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake’s younger brother, Lucas.

Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate. But as perfect as Lucas seems, he clearly has his secrets. After all, there’s an angry woman demanding money from him and a little girl who Lucas feels responsible for.

Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must figure out the truth—and soon—if she wants any hope of writing her own “happily ever after” ending.

I’m a huge Jane Austen Fan and I love Julie Wright so was super excited when I learned that Julie Wright was writing this book!

This has a great start but then in all honestly the middle lags a little. About half way through I wasn’t feeling this one quite as much as I hoped for. Thankfully I kept reading and was rewarded with a fabulous ending that left me satisfied and happy with this how this played out. Great book for those who love Jane Austen.

Rating: 4.5 Stars – Great Book
