MY OWN MR. DARCY by Karey White--Book Review

MY OWN MR. DARCY by Karey White. This romance is based on Pride and Predujice. It was a very cute read. The characters were fun and easy to like. The situation was very creative, and as a Jane Austin fan I was curious to see how this played out. It was interesting, and I enjoyed it. The growth of Lizzie was great to experience, but I wanted her to have stronger reasoning. I loved how it ended and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good, clean romance.

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.
