I went into this story with mixed reservations. I am an avid Pride and Prejudice fan. Comparing this book to my favorite all time literature is like comparing boxed wine to fine wine. Non-the-less this story is a good one. I would call it more Young Adult than contemporary. Declan and Elizabeth are characters that you can believe in. There are some "minor" characters in the background that also make the book interesting and at times amusing.
This story does address some very vile and real issues (including date rape), but does not detract from the overall story and only makes the heroine believable, admirable and strong as she struggles to put her life back together. The book shows this is a slow process.
The love story between Declan and Elizabeth is swoon worthy.
In the end, this book is credit worthy and most definitely sale worthy.
Narration: Summer Morton's performance is okay ... .not stellar but I found John Harleys female voice performance extremely lacking, which is why I knocked down the rating.

What a Yummy book! This book has love, strength, drama, violence and sex. The perfect mixture for me. I loved the characters! Elizabeth is a damaged girl with amazing strength but a misguided idea of how to deal with her past. Declan is an underground fighter with a great heart, a protective side and British accent! I love how they deal with their issued and find what they need. The love story is sweet, the sex is hot, the drama not extreme and the ending was perfect. I knew the minute they talked about Pride & Prejudice that I would love this book <3 I very much enjoyed the authors writing style and I know the book would have been great in print but I am so glad I waited for audio, I think the narrators were a perfect fit.
I would definitely recommended this book to Contemporary Romance Readers!
