Book Blurb: He hates everything about her.
She despises him even more.
So why is his heart so determined to belong to her?

Once trapped by marriage to a woman he loathed, Fitzwilliam Darcy is finally free again. Resentful, bewildered, and angry, he is eager to begin his life over—preferably with a woman who is the exact opposite of his wife.

He never imagined a short stay in Hertfordshire would bring him face to face with his worst nightmare; a woman similar in face, form, and name. He certainly never expected her to be so impossible to ignore.

Torn between what he believes he wants and what his heart cannot live without, his dignity begins to unravel. Will his desperation to escape his past drive a wedge into his closest friendship and destroy any hope of a future?

Will Miss Elizabeth Bennet prove to be as nefarious as his wife? Or, will the last woman in the world be his only chance at happiness?

My Review: I really didn't know what to expect going into this book and wow that prologue... The Darcy in this book is a major dick and he took out his moods on everybody especially Lizzy since she sort of looks like his ex-wife and has a very similar name. Darcy is an asshole through about I would say maybe halfway through and then he starts becoming an actual human being again. He is still an asshole to those who wrong him and this gets him into a spot of trouble towards the end of the book which I really should have seen coming. That destroyed me when that happened but things do work out for the best.

I have to say normally I've not a fan of first-person narration but this book just seems perfect for it. This is the book for you if you enjoy a lot of angst in your Pride and Prejudice variations.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
