After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.
Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.
How do I start with this review? It was sooooo good!!! Really you should read it! It’s about this girl who falls in love with a fictional character (who of us doesn’t? My book crush: Acheron) Anyway to get back to the story. So this girl is so infatuated about Mr. Darcy that no man can measure up. Untill her roommate pressures her to give some guy a try for 10 dates. You just have to love BFF’s right?
Anyway, you know by now I don’t like giving any spoilers but the story was awesome, the characters were likeable and very well written. I am so team Chad right now! But the author managed to make me like the other guy! And that’s true right? Nobody is just good or just evil. So yeah loved loved loved it! But you also see growth in the main character, who was a little (a lot!) obsessive. Oh and one of my favorite parts? The opinion of Tom Cruise! The people who really know me will understand hihi. So awesome book, I would so recommend it!
I had no idea what to expect about this book and I have to admit I ended up loving it! The book had a great set of characters, even though I ended up hating Matthew, since he was just such an @ss in my opinion. On the other hand, there was so much to LOVE about Chad, he just seemed like the sweetest guy in the world and every woman’s daydream! As for Lizzie, well yeah, she definitely had her eyes set on her own Mr. Darcy, without seeing the great guy that was in front of her the entire time. This is great book for people of all ages and is a super sweet & fun love story. The book has certainly left me curious about Pride and Prejudice.
