    Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book, hands down. Usually, I am a "don't fix what isn't broken" type of person, but on a whim, I bought this book. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The AJ Michaels masterfully brought the story into the modern day, without losing any of my favorite character quirks, or messing with the delicate intricacies of the relationships. I liked how Charlotte and Georgianna were fleshed out, but still loyal to their bases, and Mr. and Mrs. Bennett still had the funny marital tension in the background. Jaime and Charlie were charming, and Liam and Darcy had me laughing from the get-go. It is one story that I ended up buying both in Kindle form, and as an Audible listen, and could read (and have read to me) over and over again.

    Confessions time! Pride and Prejudice is one of my all-time favorite romances and I think I have the glory that is the 1990’s BBC miniseries memorized, so when I saw the description for a modern update of P&P, but this time with a m/m romance twist, I was quite intrigued. (And happy to say that this P&P fan came away pleased.)This time, the story is set in a college town outside of Philadelphia (but don’t worry, anglophiles! There is a trip to England and a visit to the gorgeous Pemberly estate.) Here, we have young Liam entering college, a little snarky and very much wanting to get away from his family and live on his own (with best buddy Charlotte), but he finds his life getting a little more complicated as he is dragged to a high-end party with favorite brother (and all-around sweetie) Jamie. There he comes face to face with the rich, handsome, awkward, and standoffish William Darcy. First impressions leave their mark, and Liam can’t wait to never see Darcy again, but when Jamie starts dating Darcy’s best friend Charlie Bingley, the two of them find they can’t stop meeting up, and even as Darcy irritates him to no end, Liam starts to have the first stirrings of feelings for someone else, and he doesn’t quite know what to do with this realization and what this means.Toss in a rascal of a musician, a skeezy cousin bent on marriage, financial woes and some broken hearts, and you have a fun romp that stays very true to its origins while adding in a few twists and surprises. (If you’ve read or seen Pride and Prejudice, you’ll follow along the trajectory of the story very easily, but for me, who is very familiar with P&P, it was still very fun to read and see how the author would take things.)And props for the author even getting in the scene of Liam stumbling upon the vision of a dripping wet Darcy! I whole-heartedly agree that a dripping wet Darcy needed inclusion!One note for ye olde Sexy Romance fans—this is a very sweetly romantic read, and although there is a little more action this round with Liam and Darcy than in the very “respectable” original novel, any intimate relations is fade to black and not described, so you’ll have to make up the hotness in your heads.I think the author did a really nice job—in some ways because it did stay very true to P&P’s overall plotline, there wasn’t too many surprises, and I wouldn’t have minded a little more Liam/Darcy time (‘cause I’m greedy), but this was very enjoyable, and would be a great read for someone looking for something light, fun, and romantic.I also wouldn’t mind a return to this modern P&P universe—it would be interesting to see how you take Austin’s set-up and then take it further. (What’s next for them??)Recommended, especially if you need something breezy and fun for the beach. (Not a bad place to be reading about a dripping Darcy!

    Yes, this book is using the character gallery and outline of Jane Austen's book, so some would call it a plagiate, but this author has managed to make it into a story of its own.The reader follows Liam Bennet on his journey through studies and everyday struggles, his friendship with Charlotte and his worry for his older brother Jamie. Through Jamie he gets to meet Mr. Darcy. Just as Elizabeth does with her Mr. Darcy, he is quick to judge his, coloured of course by malicious gossip of Mr. Wickham.But in this story is added the tension of Liam discovering that he might be gay, after kissing (or getting kissed by) the same Mr. Darcy he had declared he hated. Liam has not had any relationship we hear about, but he had obviously thought himself a regular guy who just had yet not met a girl he could fall in love with.There are other differences, too. The author lets Liam befriend Georgiana on his own, as Ann who came over for a semester because she followed her boyfriend. There is a quirky will of Liam's grandfather, who has obviously had some peculiar views on who was worthy getting his money. The conditions of this last will are a part of the reason why Darcy talked Mr. Bingley out of his budding relationship with Jamie, telling him that Jamie just used him.Having read and seen Jane Austen's story multiple times, I found myself wondering how will this author angle this or solve that, and I was not disappointed by her way to do it.Like Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner travelling to be able to give first hand experiences to the readers of their magazine and thus be able to visit Pemberley and meet the siblings Darcy.This is a modern love story, nothing more and nothing less, seen from Liam's POV.

    I've never missed a P&P sequel so I bought this to, as they say, "complete the set."I wasn't disappointed. It breaks the mold in that it honors modern life while somehow preserving that which evokes the feeling of the setting and mores of Austen's P&P. The names attempt to be recognizable though they are not the same. It's awkward, sometimes, but it seems - uncomfortably - right. After all, P&P original and copycats all made me uncomfortable here and there too. Other P&P versions seem to have left an impression on the author as well, so its legacy encompasses more than one would expect.If you have been driven to read and watch most sequels of the original I wouldn't miss this one, though I respectfully suggest one politely "have the headache" when encountering the version with the Zombies!
