I absolutely loved this modern variation of Pride and Prejudice!
Fast paced, romantic, intriguing characters, captivating and hilarious, well written banter.
A must read.
Mr Bingley had coerced Mr Darcy into hiring his sister-in-law Elizabeth as an attorney. Darcy thought that finding Mr Hurts replacement could have waited and was very vocal in expressing it.
Unfortunately, Elizabeth overheard him and her dislike was instant.
Darcy, on the other hand, took a week or two to realise his mistake.
The annual, corporate secret Santa tradition, seemed like a good plot to rectify her poor first impression or could buying her gifts be as efficient as poetry in driving away love?
You'll have to read it, to find out...
Heartily recommend this book!
This was a delightful modern variation or re-imagining of Austen’s P&P story. There was so much going on with this story. We had the basic points of conflict from canon that translated beautifully to this modern setting. The initial insult that sets the story in motion was well done and the reader knew it was on between the two main characters. I did get a little irritated at Elizabeth’s attitude toward her boss, Mr. Darcy. She held on to her grudge like a dog with a bone and was not about to let him off the hook. This took way too much time. I wanted to shake her until her teeth rattled. Her attitude took on monumental proportions. I thought they would never get together. And isn’t that why we read JAFF [Jane Austen Fan Fiction], the page-time between ODC [our dear couple]?
Characters: We had so many P&P characters pop up throughout the text. Many were a surprise and it was such a delight to come across them. It was like a scavenger hunt where the reader tries to find as many Austen names as possible. There were many characters missing from the page although they were referenced. It was amazing how the author could insert conflict and drama from a character who wasn’t even present. I’m glad they were absent. For one thing, I wasn’t interested in them and our stage would have been very crowded if our author had tried to insert them. Their presence was not needed and actually, were not missed one bit. It was a good call to keep the list of characters to a minimum.
One name in particular impressed and surprised me. Mr. Hurst, I loved him. Charles and Jane were even cuter than canon. Is that possible? The relationships between the main characters were amazing. It made me want to be part of that social group. The working/friend relationship between Charlotte and Elizabeth was even stronger in this story. I loved Ana [Darcy’s sister], she was so cute. I even loved the support staff, Reynolds, Hill and the new staff members. And, let us not forget Grunt the famous black cat that had to stick his paw into Lizzy’s love life. He was a hoot. And I love that cover. It was amazing.
I highly recommend this for a quick minimal angst love story that will just warm your heart. The season of giving during Advent made me lean in closer to my reader as Lizzy opened each new gift from her Secret Santa. That is the sign of a good story. Well done.
The synopsis does a good job of telling us what to expect. Elizabeth is rather stubborn to the extreme when it comes to her attraction for her hot boss. And blind to the extreme to his attraction for her. Or denial? Read and see. It’s really frustrating for the reader and you want to shake her much like Charlotte and Jane want to, especially Charlotte.
One thing I loved is Darcy’s character. Sounds rather simplistic because really Darcy is who I love in 95% of the stories I’ve read. But I love the way this author doesn’t make him a wimp nor an “ogre.” He has a perfect balance of vulnerability and masculinity that makes it easy to fall in love with him. His physical good looks are icing on the cake.
While maaaayyybe perhaps their “good times” together and the evolution of their romance was a bit quick and angst-free once it happened, I found myself enjoying it regardless. There are scenes for adult readers here, but they’re not explicit. They’re certainly spicy and sexy. But they’re quick and not drawn out. I’m okay with either scenario so I certainly enjoyed all the teases leading up to them finally coming together.
One final note: while I’m always and forever a dog lover, Grunt the cat was a lovable character in his own right in this story. Pure diva and pure troublemaker. But like Elizabeth, it was hard to stay mad at him. Perhaps my favorite Grunt-ism was his “sphinxlike” appearance on Darcy’s chest. I could totally picture it.
Loved this story and I can’t wait to read it again and again like her other stories!

But I loved the cat! I have always thought cats enslaved their supposed owners - and this one certainly did.
A nice modern P&P variation, romantic, the characters are well described.
