    Did not like

    I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this book. Once again Ms. Dixon characterization of Elizabeth Bennet leaves much to be desired. She always comes off as arrogant, immature and a know it all. No maturity whatsoever. Also, there is no rich character development of the other characters either. Will not buy another book by this author.

    Younger Darcy, Older Elizabeth? YES! A Wonderful Tale!

    Dixon delivers yet another fascinating adaptation on much loved tale. Finding herself widowed after six months of marriage, Elizabeth moves in with her sister, Jane Bingley. Determined to enjoy life as a widow, Elizabeth makes the most of the Season, welcoming the steady stream of callers who grace the Bingleys’ sitting room. Yet, all may not be as it seems. Scarred by her past, Elizabeth does not trust easily. Realizing she harbors a secret, Darcy sets out to discover what Elizabeth is hiding, while at the same time, desiring to earn more than her trust. Dixon does a great job of incorporating the goings on of the ton into her story. Here, we catch a glimpse of what really goes on inside gentlemen clubs, such as White’s, and how widows keep their beds warm. Coincidentally, this is also where I became irritated with Elizabeth’s naiveté. Not only is she inexperienced, but at times she is also immature. The way Elizabeth openly flirts with callers, and doesn’t realize the import of her words or the consequences of such forward behavior, reminds me of Lydia and the regiment. A few times, it seemed as if I was reading a Regency romance with some drawing room drama taking place. Dixon slowly builds up the heat between Darcy and Elizabeth. While there is the hot, sensual passion, their needs run much deeper than just the physical. Welding together friendship and trust, the two come to have such a deep love for each other in all aspects. Even though my heart broke for the pain in Elizabeth’s past, Darcy was quick to put me at ease with his gentle solicitude. The way Darcy sets out to protect Elizabeth, regardless the cost, the trust each gains from the other, and the sense of oneness they achieve, solidify their relationship into being one that will overcome any obstacle. With a few scoundrels, a dynamic heroine, pain, passion, and abiding love, Still a Young Man is a winner and sure to please the Pride and Prejudice variation lover.

    Different but worth reading

    P.O. Dixon has fast become one of my favorite authors. I was a little surprised that in this book, Elizabeth Bennet is older than Darcy and the twist in this story - her unhappiness and lack of trust - is one I at first couldn't accept but by the end of the story, I was totally sold on the way it was told. It was sexy but loving and I will read it again.

    Relentless Love

    At the beginning of the story I was upset because this was not the Elizabeth I have grown to love. I am accustumed to Elizabeth being more thoughtful and demur. However, as the story progressed, I was encaptured, once again into the world of Darcy and Elizabeth. I loved his steadfastness to their relationship.
    I have read practically all of the "what if" books written about P and P and this will be one of my favorites. I have enjoyed reading most of the books written by this author.
