Length: 85,000 words approx.
Quick-tempered Bennet Rourke dislikes Darius Lanniker on sight. Darius may be a hotshot city lawyer, but that doesn’t give him the right to sneer at Bennet, his friends, and their college. It doesn’t help that Bennet’s restaurant job has him waiting at Darius’s table. So when his tutor recommends him for an internship at Darius’s Pemberley estate, Bennet isn’t sure he wants it. He’s also not sure he can afford to turn it down.
Darius is a fish out of water in the small college town of Meriton, but something keeps pulling him back there. He’s helping out a friend with business advice, nothing more. If he’s interested in Bennet, it’s not serious. Sure, Bennet challenges him in a way no other man has. But they have nothing in common. Right?
Wrong. Their best friends are falling in love, and Bennet and Darius can’t seem to escape each other. Soon they’re sharing climbing ropes and birthday cake, and there’s a spark between them that won’t be denied.
But betrayal is around the corner. Darius must swallow his pride and Bennet must drop his prejudices to see the rainbow shining through the storm clouds.
A standalone novel—a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Note: contains mention of past abuse.
Just that one opening line had me! Kinda like that saying 'You had me at hello.' Megan Reddaway is definitely a new author to me, but after reading this phenomenal story, I cant wait to read what other books she has in store.
I could relate to Bennet Rourke's character. A struggling school student, who works, is a bit estranged from his family and would do anything for his friends because to them they are his family. So when his mate meets the one and his friend happens to be some big rich snob Bennet sucks it up and tries his hardest to deal being surrounded by him.
Darius has learned long ago that people tend to see dollar signs instead of the person behind the money. He has his jaded past to thank for that and the only thing that matters is for him to make sure that his best friend isn't taken for a ride just for his money. However, he has met his match in Bennet. He manages to annoy him and turn him on at the same time.
Through their journey Megan was able to brilliantly show the prejudices that both the rich and the less fortunate face daily. The assumptions that are made and how easily it can ruin not only lives but friendships as well as relationships.
This is definitely one intriguing story that I would recommend to all fellow friends and readers.
