Although Tristan's Uncle Eldridge always told him it was just as easy to fall in love with a wealthy man as it was to fall in love with a gay man, Tristan was always more interested in falling love with the right man than he was in finding money or prestige. While growing up and observing his uncle's many gay friends in long-term relationships, Tristan's main goal in life ...more

No surprise that Ryan Field delivers another beautiful, sexy romance. Stock up on the kleenex cause the touching HEA will surely move you to tears. The story is funny, entertaining, and leaves you with a great feeling of hope.

So far, of all the remakes, I enjoyed this one the most. Mainly, because Ryan does such a good job of translating the pride and prejudices to the gay community.

Don't expect a scene by scene remake. This takes the aspects that are at the core of Jane Austen's book: the cutting observations about people and society and what people are proud and prejudiced about but putting them into a modern gay context. So, we're not getting dry 1800 social observations of character but 2010 characterisations fro

4.5 stars.
A B Gayle has the best review. I did not love it quite as much even though I identified with the MC. All I wanted from the age of 19 was to find the right man and get married. The man I found at 22 was willing to marry me but not until it was legal--which finally happened. 34 years and counting,
Lots of issues the book brought up were very important to me. Miller was a bit of a problem for me as he originally was a bad boy and he smoked (instant turn off) and he seemed to be just intere

An evenly paced romance between one MC who's out (and pretty fine with that) and another who doesn't know whether he's in the closet or whether he should even be thinking of stepping inside.

It's a nice, quiet sort of romance. No highs, no lows. Nothing bad, but nothing to to shout about either. I liked Tristan but Miller, I'm leery of. Probably because I'm not in the mood for closet gays at the moment.

I absolutely love Pride and Prejudice, which is why I avoided this for a long time. Nothing can ever come close to the original. And for part of it, I DID have an attitude about it, not liking it until I realized there was no way for it to compare with the original (besides the face that Jane Austen, wow), because it is set in a contemporary setting, not historical. It makes things different. Once I got past that, I actually liked the book, because I liked Tristan, one MC, a lot. Miller, another ...more

Sweet story of a quirky uncle determined to fit into high society and pushing the nephew he raised to 'marry' for fortune.

Tristan doesn't want to marry for money but for love and finds that the enigmatic Miller is just who he wants. Though Miller says he's not gay, he finds that Tristan is all he thinks of.

Entertaining, funny... and not so funny situations lead to embarassment and some heartache, but Miller finds himself and in the end finds what he truly needs... Tristan.

I really enjoyed this book and its contemporary spin on the story of Pride and Prejudice. Tristan was so sweet. All he wanted was to find the man of his dreams and settle down and get married. Miller was slightly less likeable for the majority of the book but as he passed through some pretty life-changing moments he began to appeal to me a bit more. Marriage equality is a very important part of this book and I enjoyed the way that facts and issues were inter-woven with the plot.
