Release Blitz: Out, Proud, and Prejudiced by Megan Reddaway (Review + Giveaway)

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 85,000 words approx.


One’s proud, one’s prejudiced, and they can’t stand each other.

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.

Kristina's Review

4 Stars

I really enjoyed this book and while I’ve never read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (I’m not really a Classics kinda Gal), I had fun following Bennet and Darius’s story.

I loved Bennet’s dedication to his schooling and friends. How responsible he was for a twenty-year-old was refreshing. While he still made a little time for fun, his mind was always on what he needed to do to succeed in life.

Darius was a little harder to like (which, I guess, was the point) but he did have his moments. His dedication to his loved one was commendable, but that didn’t excuse his attitude.

I wasn’t attached to Bennet’s friends or his family. I did enjoy the town and the visual that Megan created as she told this story, though.

The pacing was spot on and made it so easy to flow from chapter to chapter. There was no excess of extra descriptions like some authors are known to do. I hope to enjoy more of Megan’s work in the future. Her work has made a very good impact on me and I sincerely hope others will enjoy it as well.
