I am ready to read this book again.

I'm not one to read steamy books like romance novels so maybe that is why I didn't care so much for the sex scenes and found myself skimming through.
S. Christman
Fun and great how it has a modern story line.

I thought I would provide the back-cover blurb and a little more detail than the description above.

A thoroughly modern adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy re-paints our favorite characters in twenty-first century colors.

Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy has had enough. A transplanted Englishman roped into being a San Francisco judge at a young age, Will Darcy is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy judge. She's just trying to survive her first year as a trial lawyer.

Played out in Judge Darcy's courtroom, tempers and sparks fly as the two battle wits and chemistry, and the inevitable occurs: judge meets attorney, judge snubs attorney, judge falls for attorney.

When the two are unexpectedly thrown together, passions flare. But when the ethical considerations forbid their romance, can Will convince Elizabeth that their love is worth fighting for?

A sexy, bold, and oftentimes hilarious story with a fresh and vibrant cast of characters, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy will pull you in from the first page and won't let go until the last!

Many modern adaptations of Pride and Prejudice fall short because the author tries to "rewrite" the story but forgets to develop the characters. I found some of the "connections" to P&P to be a bit of a stretch (i.e., Meryton is a suburb of San Francisco and this F. Darcy is the great, great, great, great, great grandson of the character we Austen fans all love), but the characterization between Darcy and Elizabeth is still there, just like in the original. They are very passionate, a characteristic I always assumed the original couple had, even though Regency England required them to be hidden passions. I could do without the use of the "F" word, but it would not keep me from rereading this book.
Darcy is everything a woman could want - tall, handsome, rich, and sensitive. Elizabeth is an independent woman. I, especially, loved the scene after the bachelor auction when she slapped the wholly crap out of him in the parking lot. You go girl!!!!
Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who loves P&P as I do.

... and the most swoonable Darcy as well (and if swoonable doesn't YET exist in the dictionaries, I'll plead my non-English speaking... :-) )

But I have to say that Sara Angelini managed to show us what we all suspected and Miss Austen didn't dare to (but mentioned it all the same!) by the time she wrote the wonderful story of Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet: the strong attraction which subsisted between the two of them from the beginning! Yes, she did speak of - or rather made Darcy speak of - those utmost forces of passion...
Yes, we do sense them in this modern narration of the most beloved novel (Pride & Prejudice).
Wonderful story, one of those you would keep on your bed stand for repeated bed time reading...

Format: Paperback
I was really looking forward to reading this and was supremely disappointed. If you love the idea of P&P don't expect any of it from this book other than the similarity of the names. It is a semi-entertaining story if you like quick reads with no substance and lots of sex, but don't expect any resemblance to the characters of Jane Austen's. It pretty much is a glorified bodice-ripper and I didn't care anything about the characters, primarily because there was very little character development. If you took out all the sex you'd probably be left with MAYBE 100 pages in a 338-page book. After Darcy and Elizabeth meet in the beginning of the book their contact together in the courtroom spans all of 5 pages and is mostly described passively, with no real dialogue. This is supposed to support how Darcy is falling for Elizabeth but without real conversation it's difficult to believe any of it. I couldn't believe anything but the lust between the two characters, and if Darcy has so much integrity (which was mentioned by Elizabeth over and over) then how come he sleeps with his best friends' sister on and off for years, and the two of them engage in an affair even though they both know it's unethical and against the rules? Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with graphic sex scenes, but I like it much better when I feel like the attraction is about the characters first, and the sex second. This felt completely contrived. The only similarities to P&P were the names of some of the characters, and the fact that Darcy wrote Elizabeth a letter. None of the other characters meant anything and were completely glossed over as unimportant.

A quick, fun beach read, nothing more.

Format: Paperback
Wow, excessive use of the f-bomb, and I'm personally not shy about the word. The sex starts on page 102 (foreplay, a bit earlier), and then rest of the book is either graphically described sex or Elizabeth being really immature. Anyone looking for an Austen fix isn't looking for either of those things. When I saw "a modern P&P" on the cover, I expected some character growth along the lines of the original. There is none of that here - Elizabeth just needs to differentiate between professional Darcy and personal Darcy and that's pretty much all you've got for the characters coming to know themselves. There's no Wickham to drive the plot along in the various very important ways he does in the original. Truthfully, I don't see how this book has anything to do with P&P other than naming all the characters the same name. But did I mention there was a lot of graphically described sex? Frankly, that's not plot, and it's just boring, I had to start skimming. All of that being said, there are worse Austen fan fiction books out there, so I can't quite give it one star.
