The synopsis does a decent job of explaining the story. Basically rumors abound thanks to Mr. Collins (and I guess Lady Catherine though she's mostly guilty of being...Lady Catherine) and these rumors threaten Lizzy and Darcy's reputations.
In this story Lizzy and Darcy are pretty quick to like each other. But of course there are obstacles in their path to true happiness. That being said, the obstacles themselves did have me somewhat bored. To the point I was rather confused by the story going in circles....
But it's the story's humor and wit that really made this story for me. From the crazy and pervy Fitzwilliams (the men apparently have a thing for breasts and Anne is more wanton than we imagined haha) to Richard's moustache to the interactions between Lizzy and Darcy, there were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in this story. A lot of it came from the reactions of Richard and Darcy to something related to Anne and her...ahem...proclivities.
I also loved how amusing their thoughts were. In one particular instance Darcy inadvertently says something out loud and curses himself for doing so.
So basically this story is saved by how funny and cheeky it is. But I gave it 4 stars because it really did go around in circles a lot and unnecessarily.
I'll probably read it again just to laugh.
And there is a LOT of innuendo and a bit of foreplay but nothing explicit.
Looking forward to more from this author.
Edit: another thing I forgot to mention is I love what this author did with Kitty and Lydia. Though I held little hope for Kitty, I found I enjoyed them both in this story. In essentials they're the same but they're a bit more clever and well rounded.
