Umm, I usually love Pride and Prejudice adapations that have Darcy and Elizabeth getting there groove on, but this one even I was like WTF, put some clothes on and do something else. LOL. Too much sex and too little plot.

The had a premise/variation that seemed really interesting and had great promise but it just ended up falling flat with lack of development. At the Netherfield ball Elizabeth storms off after their dance, but Darcy follows her. They end up in the Netherfield library where they c

Such a sweet story

I've had this book on my TBR list for awhile, so while I started a reading challenge this year I was determined to finally read it. I have to say I loved this book: Darcy's determination and passion, Elizabeth's desire and confidence, Mr Bennet's light-hearted social manner, Mrs Bennet's inner thoughts and attitude. I thought the story was well thought out and developed, though there were some grammatical errors but nothing too distracting. This book just flows and is so easy t

Out of all the Pride & Prejudice variants, this one made me laugh, blush and want to keep turning each page. Oh what can be wrought from telling little white lies? I'll tell you what can, this fun and enjoyable romp the way Jane Austen never intended. But then sexy wasn't a word way back when.

This story is funny, a bit naughty and really enjoyable.

White Lies and Other Half Truths

This was a very different variation of Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Tom Bennet was best friends with George Darcy and Edward Fitzwilliam. The three were at Eton and Cambridge together and were inseparable. The secret that Tom Bennet, Fanny Bennet, and Anne Darcy shared would haunt their lives forever. When Tom left Pemberley, George Darcy was sad that he had lost his old friend that he considered a brother. He wasn't sure why he left, but both he and Edward felt

This book is written very much in the same vein as Enid Wilson's P&P adaptations. Those who are familiar with those works know exactly what to expect with this offering from Cole. I read the synopsis in advance, so I wasn't surprised at the out-of-character (propriety) behaviour. I thought the storyline was well handled with all the diversions interlaced within it. It's not for purists but was entertaining to read.

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Darcy and Elizabeth have been found kissing in the Netherfield Library by her Father and need to marry quickly.
I would have quite enjoyed the story if it wasn't for the 'mature content" as Darcy begins instructing Elizabeth in preparation for their wedding night.
