Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice that proves true love is worth risking a little pride.
Spring Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her thesis and save the environment. Easy, right? Uh. No. When her professor suggests with a few changes the thesis could be published, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. Except––that means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.
He’s her polar opposite and pushes all her buttons. When she finds there's more to Henry than his old money and argyle sweaters…it’s hard not to like him––a lot. Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.
Review: Definitely, Maybe in Love
Definitely, Maybe in Love by Ophelia London is a very different retelling of the storyline of Pride and Prejudice. We have all heard thta no story is original, that everything gets it's pieces and parts from something else, but this had quite a few quirky differences that made it an endearing tale.
We meet highly independent, feminist, vegetarian and all-around savior of planet earth, Spring Honeycutt (AKA Spring Elizabeth Honeycutt McNamara Shakespeare-Barnes thanks to her flighty mother). She wears multiple braids in her blond hair and is trying to get her professors approval on her independent study project. She is overworked, has a heavy class load and now has to find a way to see her paper from the other side.
Enter Henry Knightly, a "Twenty-three-year-old student of jurisprudence". He lives across the street from Spring, he IS the other side of the argument for her paper, and he's hot. Too bad they can't stand each other from the first second they meet.
She's a hippy, he's a yuppy and the chemistry between the two simmers and boils throughout the tale.
This is a romance and is light on the dirty details but will still get you pitter-pattering with the descriptive kisses and embraces that occur throughout. Much more a story than a panty-sizzler.
