Book Blurb: Rich and arrogant movie star, William Darcy, was a Hollywood heartthrob until a scandalous incident derailed his career. Now he can only hope that Tom Bennet’s prestigious but low budget indie film will restore his reputation. However, on the first day of filming, he nearly hits Bennet’s daughter, Elizabeth, with his Ferrari, and life will never be the same. Okay, she’s a little sarcastic, but he’s certain she’s concealing a massive crush on him—and it’s growing harder to fight his own attraction….

Elizabeth Bennet has a lot on her plate. She’s applying to medical school and running the studio’s charity project—while hoping her family won’t embarrass her too much. Being Darcy’s on-set personal assistant is infuriating; he’s rude, proud, and difficult. If there’s one thing she dislikes, it’s people who only think about themselves. But then Elizabeth discovers Darcy has been doing a lot of thinking about her.

She might be willing to concede a mutual attraction, but events are conspiring against them and Darcy subject to constant public scrutiny. Can Darcy and Elizabeth have any hope for a happy ending to their Hollywood romance?

My Review: I went into this book knowing virtually nothing about it (it just shows you I will read anything by Victoria Kincaid). This book starts with Darcy almost running over poor Lizzy with his car (thank goodness for that lamppost) and is a total dick and doesn't apologize. Almost from the beginning of the book, you see how poorly she is treated by most of her family. Hell towards the end of the book they blame her for Lydia's accident but Lydia was also warned about a certain person but she didn't listen. The thing that takes the cake though is the despicable way that Wickham treats Darcy in this book. I'm glad he got what was coming to him.

This is one of the better modern Pride and Prejudice novels I have read in a while. I recommend reading it if you like a good modern Pride and Prejudice book.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5
