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.

This is such an adorable story! Of courser, I’m a P&P 2005 fan, but even those who haven’t watched the movie will like to read this.
Sounds like a fun book by an awesome author! Definitely on my wish list now!
What a cute, fun story! I loved all the Pride & Prejudice references (makes me want to see the 2005 movie again) — including the gorgeous cover! My biggest complaint is that I got frustrated with the heroine’s reasoning and how she couldn’t let go of her mostly silly obsession.
I LOVED the passion in this book!
Not only the passion for a young girl holding on to her dream-love.
But also the passion of a woman struggling to make her dream-job become a reality.
So well written!
Couldn’t put it down!
Made me fall in love with being in love all over again!
We as girls have our dream guy in our heads.
We think of him~
We plan for him~
We seek after him~
Elizabeth is no different…
You will feel young and carefree
as you read about falling in love with
“my own Mr. Darcy.”
