Review: Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson

Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson

Blurb from Goodreads:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.

Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs; her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy, and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?
My Review:

As a huge Jane Austen fan, I've read countless Pride & Prejudice retellings.  Some are continuations of the story, some are modern retellings and still others presuppose what would have happened if certain plot points in P&P never actually happened.  However, I can easily say that I have never read in a modern retelling in which Mr. Darcy and Ms. Bennett are dog show participants.  Don't let this seemingly odd premise throw you, however, because the tension, pride and prejudice of Darcy and Elizabeth are truly perfection in Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson!  I loved learning more about dog shows and reading about Elizabeth and Darcy in this unique setting -- most of the book takes place in London and the descriptions were wonderful!  Definitely one of my favorite reads of the year.

I highly, highly recommend this to anyone that likes contemporary romances and, especially, to fans of Jane Austen.  This retelling is unique and absolutely lovely!
The mood spoiled by a heaping dose of reality, he withdrew his hand.  And as they waited for the check, they sat with their fingertips little more than a whisper apart, the air swirling with the fresh scent of ripe oranges and unwanted affection.                      
This book is scheduled to be released on January 1, 2014 and you can Pre-Order Here!*

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton
