Her theory of attraction is about to get a new angle…
Spring Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her sustainable living thesis and to save the environment. Both seem hopelessly unobtainable until her college professor suggests that with a new angle, her paper could be published. Spring swears she’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that happens.
“Whatever it takes,” however, means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.
Henry is Spring’s only hope at publication, but he’s also the über-rich son of a land developer and cash-strapped Spring’s polar opposite. Too bad she can’t help being attracted to the way he pushes her buttons, both politically and physically. As they work on her thesis, Spring finds there’s more to Henry than his old money and argyle sweaters…but can she drop the loud-and-proud act long enough to let him in? Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and what she needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.
Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice that proves true love is worth risking a little pride.
I was trying to convince myself that you were the last woman in the world I should be in love with.” He ran a finger from my forehead to the tip of my nose. “Even though I already was madly in love with the most incredible woman in the world.”
Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is an enduring classic that has inspired a myriad of reinterpretations from the campy Bridget Jones’ Diary to the outlandish Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Definitely, Maybe in Love is a more than worthy variation of this beloved story.
Spring Honeycutt is an activist, she is living her life aspiring towards building a more sustainable environment. Henry Knightly the Third represents everything Spring despises an entitled, rich person who has no care for the planet. Or does he?
I adored Ophelia London’s ode to Pride and Prejudice, she completely reimagined the story, yet remained true to the core plot. I will say this though, Elizabeth Bennett didn’t have a patch on the prejudice that Spring Honeycutt bore towards Henry Knightly, so much so I began to despair that these two characters would be able to make a go of it. I was continually impressed at how skillfully Ms. London orchestrated the interactions between Spring and Henry realistically pitting them against one another yet maintaining the irresistible draw each had for the other.
If you are looking for a read worthy of the best of Jane Austen then Definitely, Maybe in Love is the book for you.
