BACK COVER BLURB:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife . . . in bed. Unfortunately, we've never been able to see Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam in flagrante delicto—until now.
In this deliciously naughty updating of the beloved classic, you can peek behind the closed doors of Pemberley's sexiest master bedroom—and revel in the sexual delights of your favorite couple.
From first kiss to orgasmic finish, this book is every Austen fan's dream come true—the story you love, with the heat turned up to high. It will come as no surprise that the dashing Mr. Darcy is as passionate and intense with his knickers off as he is with them on. And admit it, we've all wanted to see him sans knickers!
I actually like the cover. That and the premise is what enticed me to actually buy this book.
As you can see I am very passionate about this subject.
Anyhoo. When Robin was on Twitter posting her books covers, she posted this one. I immediately saved her tweet and when this book was released I downloaded it to the Kindle and started reading.
I should have paid more attention to the Amazon reviews first. Really, I should have. I could not finish this book no matter how anxious I was to read it. I simply could not.
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: THE WILD AND WANTON EDITION basically takes Jane Austen's version and adds a paragraph of two of some heated thoughts and behaviors. However, those heated thoughts and behaviors (which is mostly of Darcy jacking off and Lydia humping anything that moves) does not fit in with Jane Austen's style and instead of being a pleasure are a big distraction that pulled me out of the story.
As you know, I am not a prude in my reading and my favorite Pride and Prejudice adaptations includes smexing, but I just could not get into this novel. I just could not. It did flow right, it seemed out of place, it just didn't do a thing for me.
I just didn't like it. I've been trying to finish reading this since I bought in January 14th and finally decided to stop. I made it up to where Mr. Collins arrives.
I actually bought this book with my own money on the day it was released. SIGH! However, if this intrigues you, Amazon has just offered it as a free read. You can look on Amazon and get this title for free until they take it down.
What? I surprised you? Oh don't let me stop you, finish undressing!
