Hate is a strong word.

Depending on the company, loathe is a good substitute. Abhor might be a little fancy, but it gets the job done. But the word that really sums up how I feel about Liam Darcy is, without question, hate.

He doesn’t seem to think much of me either. The second he lays his fault-seeking eyes on me, he sets out to oppose me. Everything about him is imposing, as if he consumes the nearby air to power the rise and fall of his broad chest, and it’s clear he resents my presence on his advertising team. Every idea I have is shot down. Every olive branch I offer is set on fire by nothing more than the blistering coals he calls eyes.

In return, I light him up with my words.

It’s not as if he can dismiss me, since I work for his client, Wasted Words. Instead, he’s forced to tolerate me, which seems the closest we’ll ever be to friends. Fine by me.

I can be civil and still hate Liam Darcy.

But if there’s more to him than his exterior shows, I won’t be able to hate him at all. I might stumble over that line between love and hate and fall right into his arms.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

My Review…

This twenty-first century retelling of the classic Pride and Prejudice by Staci Hart is nothing short of spectacular!

Rather than rehash the storyline that any true Austen fan knows.  I want to fan-girl hard on the way that Ms. Hart has recrafted this tale with a fresh twist but staying true to the classic.

I was entranced by Liam Darcy, to be able to delve into his mind was amazing.  To see the inner struggle he had with his feelings and his sense of trust and loyalty made me love the character all the more. His brashness is a cover for how deeply he truly feels and it was beautiful to see how Laney was able to draw it out of him.

Laney Bennet is a firecracker! I have admired this character since the first book in this series.  I knew her story was going to be one for the ages and Ms. Hart didn’t disappoint. 

The chemistry between Liam and Laney was hotter than the hinges on Hades gate!  The sparks that flew between them could set the world on fire! It’s a thin line between love and hate indeed!

I also loved how Ms. Hart was able to spin in Jett’s story into the fabric and made it smooth like silk in the processes.  

This story is more than just a love story between two characters, it’s about family loyalties, it’s about how far is too far when it comes to your loved ones happiness and about finding your way back to where you belong, your home.
