Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star
Darcy's as hot as he is talented...
Fast music, powerful beats, and wild reputations-on and off stage-have made virtuoso guitarist Fitzwilliam Darcy's band into rock's newest bad boys. But they've lost their latest opening act, and their red-hot summer tour is on the fast track to disaster. Now Darcy and bandmates Charles Bingley and Richard Fitzwilliam are about to meet...more

However, I’ve seen multiple versions of the movie and have loved (most of) them. My favorite being the 2005 version starring Keira Knightly and Matthew ...more
Between the poor editing, the constant character point of view head hopping and the purple prose, I seriously wanted to stick a drumstick in my eye. I'm not a fan of fanfiction, nor authors riding the coattails of the classics but I liked the cover on this (yeah...I'm that superficial) and it was a little intriguing: Darcy as a rock star? Leather pants? Okay. Sign me up.
I felt like the personality characteristi ...more
Let me say I grew up in the era of fanfiction, and this reads very much like one, it probably was before it was published given the author takes the time to note who the characers are compared to their celebrity equivalents beforehand.
It was pretty much reading a bad fanfiction (my band of choice was Hanson back in the day and with the three guys and a female love interest for each it was very familiar) and the characte ...more

As soon I started reading Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star I truly believed that I had in my hands the best fan fiction I have ever read and a really good contemporary romance title. I'm sad to say that by the time I had read the first 1/3 of the book, my opinion started to change rapidly, only to leave me by the end exhausted and feeling that I have read one of the worst contemporary titles ever. I mean this book literally sucked the life force out of me...

The author mentioned that this wasn't supposed to be published. It's her first book and Heather Lynn Rigaud is an author with an awesome talent for transferring the basic problems of the original into this modern version and adding some more spice into it. Well, not just some. She wrote from every character's POV, and even Darcy's which, in my o ...more

A premissa do livro é muito legal, mas a escrita, o excesso de cenas de sexo e a estupidez dos diálogos me fez perceber o quanto eu avancei na minha leitura e análise de narrativa nos últimos anos. Não acredito que eu achei legal alguns anos atrás.
It is so sad that I broke my "no new ebooks until I've finished the ones I've already paid for" rule for this and not any of the books on my wishlist that will not embarrass me.
I guess either you will understand the irrestible attraction of a Pride & Prejudice rock star AU or you won't.
Thank god at last I am free of this atrocity.
But yes still very different. Darcy is a rockstar with his own band Slurry. Wickham used to play there too but was thrown out, later we learn why. But now there is Bingley who is as sweet as ever, and Richard who is the person that has changed the most. Poor Richard has a few addictions. Lady Cathe ...more
So of course, we're not talking about high literature or sweeping drama. This is a modern Pride and Prejudice with rock stars. Only, the rock stars and their "legendary" hijinks are pretty much nowhere to be found. The cover says "Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n Roll" bu ...more
Unfortunately, that giggly feeling didn't stick around. I got to 63% and finally just had to put it down. At that point, I had been skimming for easily 20%.
The POV hops between characters with dizzying frequency, and even if it hadn't, all of the perspectives other than Eli ...more

"It IS like a fairy tale. I read the news reports and even I can't believe it. ...(removed for spoiler reasons)... That just sounds so hokey. If you tried to sell our story to a movie studio, they would just laugh."

"three members of a girl group [with] three members of a rock band. That just sounds so hokey. If you tried to sell our story to a movie studio, they'd just laugh..."
News flash, they did sell the story and made the movie. It was was Alvin and the Chipmunks the Squeakquel. Unfortunately "Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star" as a book is just as unbelievable as singing chipmunks.
While "Rock Star Romance" is one of my favorite sub-genres I just couldn't get into this one, every ...more

I gave my trust to you.
I came to you open-hearted,
Hoping it was true.
Now I've gotten smart.
Now I've learned some things.
Now I know that what once was a start,
Is just an ending.
The longest good-bye
I ever knew,
The longest good-bye
Was the day
I said hello to you.”
"I hear that he is so big," she lifted her eyebrows to indicate what she meant, "that he put a girl in the hospital and she is suing him, because she can never have babies because of him."
"Ewwwwwwwwwww!!!!" the sisters chorused.
"Could a guy really do that?" Lydia asked.
Elizabeth shrugged. "I guess, but he would have to be the size of a friggin' oak tree.”
