Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones-one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy's never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else's drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family. Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He's a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it's just another one night stand. But why can't she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?

This was a nice, light read. Funny and romantic and I really enjoyed the gender swapping re telling on the classic by Jane Austen. A bit slow paced in some areas but overall not that bad.

This book was such a let down for me. I didn't care much for how the characters were written. I still am not sure on this name swap thing that the author had going.... I didn't like it at all. I also very quickly got annoyed with just about every decision the main character made. And I don't know if it was just me but I felt like I was reading a book full of advertisements. Everything had a name drop. North face, Tiffany's. Champagne brands, apple products. I don't know if this was done to prove how much money they had or what but I detested it entirely. Overall not my favorite book and didn't do anything for me.

Many reviews weren't very favorable for this "Pride and Prejudice"-based novel, but I rather enjoyed it. It was light, funny and totally had me in the Christmas spirit.

Pride and Prejudice is my favorite classic story. I've read and watched almost all of the different renditions of this story - from the YouTube drama to the one with the zombies. I loved it all.

Except for this.

And I liked the concept initially. I've always wanted to see the story from Darcy's point of view and I always enjoy the gender switch as much as the next person.

But man was the execution terrible. Everything was just ridiculous. It felt so... flat and fake and terribly lazy writing. But my biggest problem was with Bingley.

It's like he was written as a girl and then switched his pronouns because he was gay. It was so toxic and lazy.

It felt like it was written by a teenager, or someone trying to meet the deadline for NanoWrimo.

There was a whole thing about the 12 days of Christmas and why Darcy didn't believe in Santa. Like... what. It was so out of place.

I'm sorry but I am just upset at how this book came out because I was so excited to read this

Excellent Christmas read! Melissa De La Cruz does it again with a Christmas romance loosely based on Pride and Prejudice.
