BARNES & NOBLE
After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie’s hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn’t about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome new neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.
Fun, compelling, and romantic, Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn't afraid to show him that he doesn't. It’s about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.
My Book Review:
My Book Review:
In Prejudice Meets Pride, author Rachael Anderson creates a fresh retelling of the classic Jane Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice.
Emma Makie puts her dream job as an art teacher on hold when her brother Noah's wife dies and he is struggling to take care of his two young daughters. Driving cross country to Colorado Springs, Emma takes temporary custody of her two nieces and moves into her grandmother's ramshackle house. With no job, no money and only a thirty year old rundown car to her name, Emma is determined to be independent and make it on her own.
Kevin Grantham is a successful pediatric dentist who likes to live an orderly and well maintained life. When a new neighbor with children moves into the rundown house next door with an eyesore of an old car, he makes a snap snobby judgement about Emma's abilities and tries to help her out but is thwarted every time.
Can two opposites attract, can they overcome their pride and prejudice, learn to trust, and let love in the door?
Prejudice Meets Pride is a wonderful contemporary take on the classic Jane Austen novel. This is a clean romantic tale that has a great mixture of romance, humor, family dynamics, and life lessons. The author easily draws the reader into Emma and Kevin's story, you can't help but embrace them and enjoy the development of their relationship: from their awkward meeting, to gradually forming a friendship and overcoming their differences, to discovering that there is something more growing between them. It was fun to watch how they learned to overcome their pride (Emma) and prejudice (Kevin), and discover that their differences actually make them so perfect together. There is a nice mixture of humor and sweetness that will simply make you smile. I also enjoyed the author's thoughtful message within the story about the life lessons that Emma and Kevin learned: the importance of family values, accepting the differences in people and not being judgmental, and learning to accept help and not run away from your problems. I look forward to reading the next two books in the series.
If you are looking for a fun, flirty, and lighthearted romantic story, then look no further, Prejudice Meets Pride is the book for you.
Prejudice Meets Pride is the first book in the Meet Your Match Series.
