Publisher's Summary

After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie's hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn't about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome neighbor, who seems to think she's incapable of doing anything on her own.

Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn't afraid to show him that he doesn't. It's about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.

Cute PG-13 romance

This is a cute story. For Jane Austen fans, just be aware that this does not in any way mimic the Pride and Prejudice storyline. It deals with the idea of pride and misconceptions, but this is not Darcy and Elizabeth. Moving beyond that though, I did enjoy the story and these were relatively unique characters as romances go. The "love" scenes, don't go beyond making out. I'm letting people know that just as a gauge for personal preference.

A sweet and fun romance!

I enjoy a good romantic story! This was spot on sweet and fun. As I listened, I would find myself smiling and sometimes laughing out loud at the fun flirting between Kevin and Emma. It was so refreshing to have a clean, romance in a modern Austen way!

Sweet Romance Between Neighbors

This was a sweet romance between neighbors, who at first glance did not like what they saw. Emma moved in with her nieces and beat up old car "Sunshine". Kevin hoped they were there to fix up the house and put out a For Sale sign.
Emma is stubborn and her pride keeps her from accepting help. At first, Kevin tries to help Emma with groceries, she isn't very receptive. She insists on paying him back. The way they go back and forth is cute.
The little girls help bring Emma and Kevin together, first out of need, then friendship that turns into romance.
I enjoyed reading/listening to this book. It was a quick, fun, clean, romance.

My Musings

What a heartwarming story! I loved all the characters. The plot felt so genuine and not contrived at all, very natural. I’m so glad I found this book through the romance package on Audible. Happy reading/listening!

just didn't have the patience to listen to this

The story set up okay but the pity party came on just a bit too hard and strong. Lost patience with the story development and the narrator is not a fit for this material which flattens the story even more. Needed some feeling of chemistry sooner some sparks.

Did not finish. Not for me.

I got to the 1 hour 37 minute mark and could not go on. This couple doesn’t get along from the moment they meet and perhaps that’s supposed to kickstart an enemies to lovers vibe, but to me their stand-off became tedious instead.

The heroine has too much pride and insults the hero when he’s trying to show compassion, and he is a bit dense when he doesn’t listen to the heroine when she asks him not to behave a certain way.

But when he frustratedly asked a question I found offensive, I knew I’d had enough.

Perhaps the novel improves and both protagonists’ characters develop? I hope so. But I could not finish this book.

The narrator was good!

A random pick up and find.

The story follows Emma and Kevin. Emma has worked hard all her life and has a pride to match the state of Texas. When tragedy strikes she moves to Colorado Springs with her nieces to raise them until their dad can come home. She has no job and has no idea how to raise these girls. Then struts in Kevin who thinks she is dumb and can't manage anything. Yes, he wants to help her, but his prejudice may keep her at arm's length. Can these two look past the pride and prejudice?

So I like that this has small nods to the classic. It isn't really at all a PP variation. The only things that are similar is the pride and prejudice theme and that Kevin is from a rich family while Emma is not. This is more like a PP nod. Which I liked. I do looooove PP variations, don't get me wrong, but this worked well for our characters and story to be a simple nod.

I wanted to shake Emma and Kevin. GAAAAAAH! Can't you see you are perfect for each other?????? Sure different pay grades and different lifestyles. But you are perfect! *shakes fist*.

The kids were cute and fun. I felt for them. But I did find it odd they didn't horribly miss their mom. The author explains it away saying that the mom was never home so the girls didn't have much connection to her. Mmm. Okay. Not sure I agree with that. I remember being a kid and having zero memory of my dad and I missed him and questioned all the time. They are 6 and 4...I feel like at least the 6-year-old would be more question-y. BUT what do I know? I am no expert, so maybe that is legit.

I did want more for the ending!!! I felt like there was more to their story. Still some stuff to work out.

The narrator was good. The kid voices were meh, but I adored her guy voice. It sounded legit and it worked well.

Overall, this was pretty good. Much better than I thought it was going to be. I questioned a couple of things, but I enjoyed the ride. Cute but with heart. 3 stars.
