Publisher's Summary

Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she's been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So, naturally, when Emma falls for Blake Hampton and he invites her home to meet his parents, she is positive an engagement is in her future. After all, Blake is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and thus must be in want of a wife.

But when it turns out that what Blake actually wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, the fastest growing gym franchise in the nation. She loves her work, and she's good at it, which is why she bristles when her boss brings in a consultant to help her spearhead the new facilities on the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake's younger brother, Lucas.

Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate.

What she can't understand is why Lucas continues to try to push her back into Blake's arms when he so clearly has fallen as hard for her as she has fallen for him. Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must find a way to let Blake know that it's time for him to let her go and to let Lucas know it's time for him to love her back.

😁

This is such a great story. I loved how the author related everything back to Jane Austen or characters in Jane Austen books. The story is quirky, maddening at times and tender in others.
I enjoyed the voice the narrator gave this story. Justine Eyre did such a wonderful job.

A Simple Plot With Jane Austen Quotes

The book was such a light fluffy story and it has it own share of issues, I really like anything that is Austen related but this one wasn't what I expected .. its nice in its own way and I guess you can read it if you are in the mood for something that does not take much of your brain to follow
the narration was very good and I liked it

Good Read for Jane Austen Fans

The narrator did not do the voices the way I would have pictured, but I could tell who was talking as she differentiated well. The story was good and thought provoking. I liked the quotes and references to Jane Austen books. I laughed out loud a couple of times. It seemed to take a really long time for the people to get together with only a little of them actually together at the end, but that is somewhat Jane Austenish too.
