Overview

Out, Proud, and Prejudiced by Megan Reddaway

One's proud, one's prejudiced, and they can't stand each other.

Quick-tempered Bennet Rourke dislikes Darius Lanniker on sight. Darius may be a hotshot city lawyer, but that doesn't give him the right to sneer at Bennet, his friends, and their college. It doesn't help that Bennet's restaurant job has him waiting at Darius's table. So when his tutor recommends him for an internship at Darius's Pemberley estate, Bennet isn't sure he wants it. He's also not sure he can afford to turn it down.

Darius is a fish out of water in the small college town of Meriton, but something keeps pulling him back there. He's helping out a friend with business advice, nothing more. If he's interested in Bennet, it's not serious. Sure, Bennet challenges him in a way no other man has. But they have nothing in common. Right?

Wrong. Their best friends are falling in love, and Bennet and Darius can't seem to escape each other. Soon they're sharing climbing ropes and birthday cake, and there's a spark between them that won't be denied.

But betrayal is around the corner. Darius must swallow his pride and Bennet must drop his prejudices to see the rainbow shining through the storm clouds.

A standalone novel—a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

A good story. Out, Proud and Prejudiced is a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and believe it or not, I never read that classic so I had no idea what to expect from this story. I enjoyed reading this book, my first by Ms. Reddaway. It rambled on a bit in spots but it mostly kept me interested and I wanted to find out how it ended. Bennet is a college student trying to make ends meet. His friend Jamie meets and falls for a new man in town, Tim, who has bought an art gallery. Tim's friend Darius is a jerk. He doesn't think Jamie is good enough for Tim and he looks down his nose at Bennet, too. The story had a lot of back and forth to it. The romance between Jamie and Tim is almost as important as the one between Bennet and Darius. Darius seems to run hot and cold when it comes to Bennet but when they get together the chemistry and sex is HOT! This isn't one of my better written reviews. I read the book while on vacation and didn't have an easy way to jot down a review at that time so I'm writing this a few weeks after the fact. I hate it when that happens because no matter how much I enjoy a book, once I've moved on to the next one it's hard for me to remember everything I would normally like to say in a review. Now that I've rambled on I'll conclude by saying I enjoyed Out, Proud and Prejudiced and would definitely read more of this author's work. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. *insert sigh* I'm really not sure how I feel about this book! It started off well, and I was mostly enjoying it, but somewhere along the way, I stopped enjoying it. This was well past half way, and I wanted to see if it would perk up, so I DID finish it. Only Bennet has a say. I wanted, no I NEEDED to hear from Darius and I don't. I think maybe I might have enjoyed the whole book, had Darius had a say too. I got lost with the hate into love thing. They start off hating each other, after Darius makes a comment. But somewhere along the way, Bennet flips his emotions to the opposite end of the spectrum. And that's what it seemed like, he flipped from hatred to love. There was no build up, I felt. One minute Bennet hated Darius, and the next, he loved him. HOWEVER! What is here, is reasonably well written, and I saw no spelling or editing errors. I did like that, once Bennet listened to Darius, he believed him, and that there was some justice for Darius' brother. But mostly, it just really did not work well for me. And I'm sorry for that! It's billed as a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, but I haven't read that, so I cannot comment on how similar it is. This is the first of this author I've read. Will I read more? Possibly. Blurbs would have to grab, but I would check whether it's single point of view first. Lots of people will love this, unfortunately I didn't. But I did finish it so for that reason, 3 stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
