    A decent Pride Prejudice spin Mr Bennett dies shortly after Darcy s disastrous proposal where Elizabeth rejected him He offers for her again 6 months later when her family is on the brink of having to move from Longborn He makes a contract with Lizzy and will take care of her entire family if she ll marry him and put on a good public face Darcy also promises not to demand his conjugal marital rights, that relations would only ever occur if Elizabeth came to him on her own She s thinking, A decent Pride Prejudice spin Mr Bennett dies shortly after Darcy s disastrous proposal where Elizabeth rejected him He offers for her again 6 months later when her family is on the brink of having to move from Longborn He makes a contract with Lizzy and will take care of her entire family if she ll marry him and put on a good public face Darcy also promises not to demand his conjugal marital rights, that relations would only ever occur if Elizabeth came to him on her own She s thinking, When pigs fly So, she agrees to a sham marriage A few things were just too contrived, like the sleepwalking Still, it was nice to see her fall for Darcy and discover that he s a good man A gentleman too, he never takes liberties Clean romance They eventually consummate the marriage, but nothing detailed Fade to black bedroom shenanigans, which was nice, because reading dirty Darcy Elizabeth feels so wrong I didn t have to clutch my pearls or anything

    Where do you draw the line when playing with Austen s classic For me, unless you are talking about free fanfiction which this is NOT, you can play with the events and play with the timeline Just don t ever turn Elizabeth Bennett into a petulant fishwife I think I could have dealt with turning Darcy into the cliched, sardonic, historical romance nobleman altho I wasn t happy about that either.DNF.

    Like father like sonPerhaps on of the best variations of the a marriage of convenience genre What makes this story so very good is that Elizabeth doesn t rule Darcy so completely and force him to be her lapdog Darcy is maturing to muchlike his father and not a metrosexual we see in so many variations He is grumpy and changes only so much But Elizabeth also changes and learns to not get her back up so often I found this portrayal quite refreshing.

    Edit 3 8 16 Considering I ve read this bookthan once this year and also skimmed the good bits a few times in between , I decided to up my rating from 4 stars to 5 stars I especially love the first Harvest Festival scenewith the pile of hayso good Really, really good I usually like stories where Elizabeth and Darcy marry before they understand one another, but it was nice that this one was for reasons other than them being compromised Elizabeth definitely did not come to lov Edit 3 8 16 Considering I ve read this bookthan once this year and also skimmed the good bits a few times in between , I decided to up my rating from 4 stars to 5 stars I especially love the first Harvest Festival scenewith the pile of hayso good Really, really good I usually like stories where Elizabeth and Darcy marry before they understand one another, but it was nice that this one was for reasons other than them being compromised Elizabeth definitely did not come to love him quickly, and Darcy held tight to his pride for far longer than in most variations, which was also refreshing I love seeing the two of them in love, of course, but in this story I felt they d really earned it once they got there Also, I have a weak spot for stories where Georgiana view spoiler and Colonel Fitzwilliam end up together Not sure why, given that a modern day story where first cousins got married would weird me out, but if I can accept it in Mansfield Park, then I figure I can live with it here hide spoiler Enjoyable read, and really the only disappointment is that all of the Wickham Lydia drama happens off screen, so the conflict lost from it has to be replaced with Darcy being obstinate It skirted the edge of being annoying sometimes, but managed to just avoid it

    I read the first chapter of this book and was immidiately hooked The atmosphere paved out suited the title and the writting was good Unfortunately, after about 6 7 chapters, I found there was not nearly enough happening and the story got dragged out and ended up in an event for them to be apart for a time I doubt I would mind any of that very much if there waspassion between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy in place, I would have been happy with just angst Ms Hahn paid attention to other chara I read the first chapter of this book and was immidiately hooked The atmosphere paved out suited the title and the writting was good Unfortunately, after about 6 7 chapters, I found there was not nearly enough happening and the story got dragged out and ended up in an event for them to be apart for a time I doubt I would mind any of that very much if there waspassion between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy in place, I would have been happy with just angst Ms Hahn paid attention to other characters throughout the book and it could be a good or a bad thing depends on everyone s interest I guess But for me I didn t particularly find this to be satisfying which is strange considering I m quite fond of Colonel Fitzwilliam Maybe because I find his storyline to be too obvious For some reason I didn t enjoy his constant presence as I often do in other variations.Eventhough it was a decent read, my expectation was pretty high after the first chapter so it ended up on the disappointing end for me.I would give it 4 stars for the first 1 3 part 2.5 stars for the rest
