I started this book with such high expectations, but I struggled to connect with the characters or embrace the story. I found it all too familiar on more than one occasion, but without the fleshed out plot to go with it. For example the chauffeur, the sleeping pils, 'say you're mine', etc
Determined to finish this book, I admit to skimming the 'steamy scenes' finding them repetitive and boring. The play on Miss Bennett / Mr Blackstone, had me smirking waiting for a Mr Darcy to materialise, neither coming close to Ms Austen's charming characters.
