REVIEW: Darcy Vs. Bennet by Victoria Kincaid

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb: Elizabeth Bennet is drawn to a handsome, mysterious man she meets at a masquerade ball. However, she gives up all hope for a future with him when she learns he is the son of George Darcy, the man who ruined her father’s life. Despite her father’s demand that she avoid the younger Darcy, when he appears in Hertfordshire Elizabeth cannot stop thinking about him, or seeking him out, or welcoming his kisses….

Fitzwilliam Darcy has struggled to carve out a life independent from his father’s vindictive temperament and domineering ways, although the elder Darcy still controls the purse strings. After meeting Elizabeth Bennet, Darcy cannot imagine marrying anyone else, even though his father despises her family. More than anything he wants to make her his wife, but doing so would mean sacrificing everything else….

My Review: In this book the elder Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bennet had several situations in which they formed a intense dislike for one another which just happens to affect the futures of our dear couple. I really loved how Lizzy and Darcy met during a masquerade ball (to which Lizzy was a uninvited party crasher) and they started to like one another. But however she finds out who he is and then runs away from the party and they don't meet again for two years.

I loved Fitzwilliam in this book. he is actually very kind but has to act standoffish because him and Lizzy have to act like they hate each other. But every time they meet in private sparks fly and he also gets really jealous and shows it. I loved the part where Mr. Collins was trying to propose marriage to Elizabeth. Oh man Darcy just made that scene. It was a little sad that Darcy's father and Mr. Bennet's hatred of each other colored his view of Fitzwilliam. He never even gave him a chance until the end of the book. And I grew to hate the elder Mr. Darcy with a passion.

I swear Victoria's books always make me feel better when I read them and she is one of my go to JAFF authors. Darcy Vs. Bennet is a definite must read and you don't want to miss it.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
