Bestselling author Staci Hart is back with the Pride and Prejudice retelling you've been waiting for. We're back at Wasted Words, the book bar of our dreams, for the epic finale of the Austen series, where we'll follow Laney Bennet and Liam Darcy down the bumpy road to their happy ending.
Hate is a strong word.
Depending on the company, loathe is a good substitute. Abhor might be a little fancy, but it gets the job done. But the word that really sums up how I feel about Liam Darcy is, without question, hate.
He doesn’t seem to think much of me either. The second he lays his fault-seeking eyes on me, he sets out to oppose me. Everything about him is imposing, as if he consumes the nearby air to power the rise and fall of his broad chest, and it’s clear he resents my presence on his advertising team. Every idea I have is shot down. Every olive branch I offer is set on fire by nothing more than the blistering coals he calls eyes.
In return, I light him up with my words.
It’s not as if he can dismiss me, since I work for his client, Wasted Words. Instead, he’s forced to tolerate me, which seems the closest we’ll ever be to friends. Fine by me.
I can be civil and still hate Liam Darcy.
But if there’s more to him than his exterior shows, I won’t be able to hate him at all.
I might stumble over that line between love and hate and fall right into his arms.

A MUST READ!!
I don’t think I can formulate words with how much this book blew me away. Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favourite books and Staci Hart knocked her spin on it out of the park, like way way wayyyy gone. I loved everything, every single word written. Laney and Liam were the perfect Lizzy and Darcy incarnate. The way the intensity builds, it smoulders, leaving your heart to hold on hope knowing that everything will turn out ok. The chemistry cracks and sparks every encounter they have together. All the characters in this book are fantastic, it’s just perfection. I don’t think she could have written it any better. She incorporated all the best parts of the original flawlessly. It was one of those books that you couldn’t put down and never wanted it to end.
Well done Staci!
It’s no easy feat to attempt a modern reworking of a beloved classic. To attempt and succeed in the task is truely glorious. The characters are strong, loyal to the originals, with the scenes of angst and romance that you know are coming and do not disappoint.
