A contemporary retelling of Pride & Prejudice by New York Times bestselling author H.M. Ward and L.G. Castillo.
Charming. Sexy. Rich. William Darcy is the triple threat that should make any woman twerk on sight. He’s everything a woman could want—a beautiful billionaire with sad eyes and a crooked smile. Woman try to lick him on sight, he’s that yummy. Well, unless that woman is Beth Bennet. Her panties don’t drop for anyone, unless there’s love, so a guy like Will Darcy doesn’t stand a chance.
Being shoved up the socialite ladder in New York City chafes so Beth goes to college as far away as possible, but when her father gets sick she finds herself right back where she started—stuck together with a bronzed god who hates her.
The prideful will fall to ruin.
Their prejudice will be their undoing.
And William Darcy will be the first to fall, Beth is certain of that.
Elizabeth "Beth" Bennet is working towards her graduate degree in Texas far from her mother's meddling ways. A frantic phone from her sister, Jane, sends Beth rushing home to New York to be by her father's side.
Beth offers to remain in New York to be close to her family only to have played right into her mother's hands. Beth doesn't like William Darcy, yet can't deny that she wants his kisses and touch.
William Darcy tries to keep everyone at arms length, but that doesn't seem to be working for him with Beth Bennet.
Colin Frey needs a bride and nominates his best friend Beth even though he's clearly gay.
Beth reluctantly agrees to Colin's plan even though it's making her completely miserable.
Beth's parents are hiding something from their daughters and Beth does some snooping to figure out what it is. Will Beth go through with the wedding to Colin? What are The Bennets hiding? Will Darcy admit his feelings for Beth? Your answers await you in Over You.
This is my first experience with H. M. Ward's writing style in collaboration with L. G. Castillo. The concept for the book is the modern day retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
I've got to admit that is clearly and wholly accurate description of this book from the story to the characters. I'll be honest I enjoyed this version over the classic mainly because it isn't in Old English which sometimes frustrates me to no end.
I'll definitely consider reading more from both of these author's in the future.
