Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of my personal favorite combinations of romance tropes is the English lord in a contemporary tale with a Jane Austen twist, and The Austen Playbook by Lucy Parker delivers.” — NPR

“Charming and honestly just plain fun, The Austen Playbook should be an immediate hit with Austen fans and theatre geeks.” - BookPage

"Lucy Parker’s latest offering is a divinely delectable delight that is the apotheosis of why the romance genre exists — to provide an escape that hits you right in the feels." - Entertainment Weekly on THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK

"The London Celebrities series—some of the wittiest, smartest dialogue to come down the romance pike in years.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Funny, sexy, poignant, warm, intelligent— it’s the perfect summer read.”—All About Romance on Making Up

“To say I loved this book is an understatement – I adored it. The romance is beautifully written and developed and the chemistry between Luc and Lily is explosive.” —All About Romance on Pretty Face>

“This romance set in the London theater scene is everything you'd expect and more.”—Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date as featured on Oprahmag.com on Act Like It

About the Author

Lucy Parker lives in the gorgeous Central Otago region of New Zealand, where she feels lucky every day to look out at mountains, lakes and vineyards. She has a degree in Art History, loves museums and galleries, and doodles unrecognisable flowers when she has writer's block.

Her interest in romantic fiction began with a pre-teen viewing of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (Firth-style), which prompted her to read the book as well, and the rest was history. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars!
By Anna on April 23, 2019
This may be my favorite of the series thus far!

If there's one thing I love about this series it's how original it is. I can't think of any other romance series or book that centers on London theatre, celebrities and the world of drama they live in. Each book in this series has brought it's own story and trope and I love that even though the author relies on tropes for the romance, she always has her own original twist to it.

In this book, we focus on two character who could not be more opposite. Freddy is optimistic, always smiling and tries to never lets anything get to her. Griff on the other hand probably hasn't smiled since before he left the womb, is snarky, sarcastic and just a plain "gloomy cloud" of a guy. He's also said some not so nice things about Freddy and her acting in his critic reviews and Freddy not being affected by them only seems to make him more sardonic than usual. The author refers to them multiple times as the slyther-puff duo and it really does explain them well.

This book is a mixture of drama, swoon romance and great friendships (and relationships in general) that are not perfect but complicated in a way that we can all relate to. I am a little miffed that some characters that I do NOT like don't get the karma I think they deserve but hopefully we'll see them get in in a different book. My main reasoning for 4.5 (leaning more towards 4) star rating was that:

1. I felt like we were thrown into their relationship and there really wasn't much buildup. Yes I think they are adorable together but it was like one minute they were acquaintances who knew barely knew each other and the next they're into each other? It kind of threw me through a loop a bit. I just need a bit more tension, a few more scenes of them talking and just interacting togethers, showcasing their underlying chemistry before the feelings emerged.

2. Around 70% I started to lose a bit interest. There was just so much happening but my main focus was on the romance and perhaps it was because the angst and drama was stressing me out because I needed to know how things would work out, but I found myself wanting to skim just to get to the end so I could know how things turned out.

Overall, this was a winner in my book and I cannot wait to see who the next book will be about! I have a feeling Sabrina and Nick could make a great book and even though I feel iffy about how things ended for Maya, I wouldn't mind seeing her get a book as well. If you're a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed. And if you haven't started this series yet, well, what are you waiting for?! Jump in!
