Do you have a special love for Pride & Prejudice? Well, I do! After hearing Definitely, Maybe in Love was a modern day re-telling of this beloved story I was completely excited. Re-tellings can be tricky and often disappointing, but no worries, this stayed true to the story with way more kissing! Yes!

Spring Honeycutt is an environmentalist to the extreme, and a junior in college working on her thesis in Environmental Science. Her teacher tells her something is missing from her project: a cl

Review from Way Too Hot Books

I am big fan of Pride and Prejudice - my first introduction with it happened when I was around 10 years old, I watched that TV show with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. It was love at first sight. I read the book much later. When I saw that Definitely, Maybe in Love was modern retelling of story about my favorite brooding man - I just had to read it. So far I didn't have much luck with P&P retellings, but Ophelia London had me hooked from the first page.

This book was so sweet and adorable. If you are in a mood of a university pick it up and enjoy Spring and Henry!

Spring sounds so much like me as we are both living a research life. <3
Exactly what I would say to my mates too "I've got a research project I'm trying to wrap my brain around"

Spring is so into sustainable studies, she even went vegetarian!!

Ok, I have a secret to tell you, please don't judge me too harshly. I never read Pride & Prejudice, nor have I ever watched the movie versions....I know! I am a freak of nature and not fit to be considered an avid reader. Having said that, I feel a little guilty reviewing this modern take on the classic Jane Austin novel. I am going to give it a shot though.

Spring is a young woman who is struggling to find her place in the world. She is a cynic and a little rough around the edges. She is wor

I received an ARC copy of Definitely, Maybe in Love by Ophelia London and I loved reading it! There is something about the way London writes that I just adore. I love her witty, sarcastic voice. Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice and it was absolutely adorable. And even though you know how it’s going to end, I just Couldn’t. Put. This. Book. Down.

This is one FRACKIN AMAZING book...
OMG... 5 stars doesn't even begin to rate this book...
I am going to gather my thoughts before I review...
MAN... *sighs* just pure awesomeness..

I have to start by saying that I started this book and in two hours had of it read…I was immediately sucked in and the only reason I stopped was because I HAD TO GO TO BED….

Usually I wouldn’t go to sleep when a book is this AWESOME…but I do have a job that entails me being awake and attentive…LOL!!!

I really wasn't expecting this little gem to be so enjoyable... I just wanted to see how a modern re-telling of Pride and Prejudice would go.


I'm so glad I gave this a go. Ophelia London has done a great job of re-creating the magic of Pride and Prejudice and writing a totally entertaining, fun love story.

Great Pride and Prejudice inspired story. I think I am in love with Henry. I found myself not being able to put it down and loved watching as Springer and Henry fell in love. Now where is my Pride and Prejudice DVD (BBC Version of course).

What an absolutely BEAUTIFUL re-telling of my FAVORITE Jane Austen novel; Pride and Prejudice... (of course, the TV - BBC version with Colin Firth was the ULTIMATE in wet-panty inducement, if i do say so myself!!! LOL!!).

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

That was painful to read. Or maybe it's just because I already had a headache, but either way, I struggled to get through Definitely, Maybe in Love. I was beyond excited when Entangled launched their New Adult imprint, so I dove straight into this one. I was even more excited because the main character is an Environmental Science student. I honestly didn't care that it was also a Pride & Prejudice retelling, since all that means is that we know exactly how
I absolutely loved this. Not many "modernizations" of P+P pull it off, but this one was damn near perfection. I loved the way things got moved around, it kept me guessing.

Love love loved Henry. He's cocky and adorable and so so delicious. Spring was a bit irritating. She had the snark and wit that Elizabeth did, but I got tired of the feminist/environmentalist role pretty quickly. It's one thing to be passionate about something, but she was borderline obsessed.

However, the differences between

I love the cover of this book. It’s so romantic!

This was such a sweet read. The love story between Henry and Spring was a story I could actually see happening. Things weren’t lightning quick for them. Their connection wasn’t super intense from the get-go; there was a slow build to their relationship and their feelings for each other.

I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice (gasp,) so I can’t compare the story to that. What I c

This book took me by surprise. A modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. I haven't read the classic book but I've read a quite few retelling. But this one is my absolute favorite! I was immediately hooked! It was hard to put down. Though I know what might happen next, it doesnt lessen my excitement and enjoyment. I love Spring and I love Henry. They are an adorable pair and I loved every second they're together--talking, debating, arguing on almost everything. They are so cute t ...more

I went into this blind, not knowing that the story was based on Pride & Prejudice (I didn't read the blurb, so sue me), but, ahem, I
caught on pretty quickly. Fine, my lightbulb, feeling well-read, million dollar moment happened thanks to...a YouTube podcast that I recently watched titled The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I was disappointed at first that the plot wouldn't be original, but this Henry and Spring version might just be my favorite yet!

It was sweet and clean romance, based on Pride and Prejudice by Jane Usten that set in present day.

Even though you know how it’s going to end, I just couldn't put it down. What I liked most about the book was that I feel the emotions in it. Tension with the hero and heroine, their passion about their belief, loyalty towards their friends and family and the chemistry between them.

If you love Pride and Prejudice, I think you'll love, at least like this book too.

I don't usually read the New Adult genre because of the steam factor. This book blurb intrigued me because it's another re-hash of Pride & Prejudice. And I'm always up for a rehash. What a pleasant surprise. Great story. Excellent writing. And it was actually a clean read with plenty of great romantic tension. Will be checking out other books by Ophelia London.

A modern day Pride and Prejudice? Yes, please! I never get tired of the P&P redux.

Me gustó.

Por lo general no leo adaptaciones y menos de clásicos porque se siente un poco como leer fic y esa etapa la quemé hace muchísimos años, pero esta historia me gustó.

La autora respeta mucho de los aspectos importantes de la historia original, pero agregando nuevas situaciones, diálogos y unas personalidades completamente diferente a los personajes. Spring no me gustó mucho, tiene la personalidad prejuiciosa de Elizabeth multiplicada por mil y eso me frustraba porque la mujer no era capa

Favorite Quote(s):

“My hands were sweaty-cold again as my fists clenched in my pockets. ‘I think you are like Sir Percy,’ I said.
He looked up. ‘In what way?’
“How about by wearing a mask half of the time?’ I suggested. ‘Playing a deliberate and studied part?’ I could hear my voice becoming accusatory, remembering the past…how he’d disappeared from my life without a word, and exactly how much that hurt me. ‘Never, ever showing your true character until the final chapter.’

Four and a half stars, a beautiful new adult novel that grips your heart.

I absolutely loved and enjoyed Definitely, Maybe in Love. I did not realize when I picked up the book and read it that it's a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Shamefully I admit that I have never read the book, but it's on my kindle now, so like with most of the books on there I hope I will eventually get to it.

I’m on a NA kick so when I got an opportunity to read a new New Adult novel….

I love PaP, okay? I read the novel a couple of times, but I’m hooked on the BBC mini series with Colin Firth and I even enjoy watching the movie from 2005. MacFadyen as Darcy? *grabby hands*

This novel, as written in the synopsis, is a variation of PaP. The characters hold different familial and social circumstances, but the general storyline is quite the same. For this reason I wasn’t the least bit surprised at the var

This is my first book by Ophelia London, and I have to say I am a little bit in love with her writing style. It is just so engaging and conversational- in a good way. Definitely, Maybe in Love is such a great love story. I really enjoyed the way the story is spread out. It spans over a full year, and the book is split up into the seasons. So it feels very natural and realistic, no falling in love over the weekend.

Ever since I discovered Austenland and the whole wide world of Austen retellings and spinoffs, I've been obsessed with any I can get my hands on. There's been some duds, but Definitely, Maybe in Love is NOT one of those. In fact, it's one of the best I've discovered so far. Definitely, Maybe in Love is one that I will be picking up again for several re-reads, and I'll be picking up more of Ophelia London's novels as fast as she can produce them.

Spring is a lovable heroine, that is still flawed

For her independent study thesis, her advisor suggests that she might want to find the help of an Economics student to strenghten her thesis.

A delicious blend of sizzling character chemistry, pent up sexual tension, and plenty of do they or don't they love each other. Definitely, Maybe in Love is a fabulous new adult read. I enjoyed every moment I spent reading it.

I am a huge fan of well written retelling, and this book is definitely a well written modern day retelling of Pride & Prejudice all the way. Much like that beloved classic and the movie version staring our favorite Mr Darcy, Colin Firth, I found myself wanting
