This Story Is Flirty

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!

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.

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!

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.

Sweet, clean, contemporary romance

This was a sweet story. Emily is very stubborn and independent, and her own worst enemy, but she has a good heart. So does her neighbor, Kevin. I liked the story and the narration!
