Publisher's Summary

After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie's hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn't about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome neighbor, who seems to think she's incapable of doing anything on her own.

Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn't afraid to show him that he doesn't. It's about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.

Cute PG-13 romance

This is a cute story. For Jane Austen fans, just be aware that this does not in any way mimic the Pride and Prejudice storyline. It deals with the idea of pride and misconceptions, but this is not Darcy and Elizabeth. Moving beyond that though, I did enjoy the story and these were relatively unique characters as romances go. The "love" scenes, don't go beyond making out. I'm letting people know that just as a gauge for personal preference.

A sweet and fun romance!

I enjoy a good romantic story! This was spot on sweet and fun. As I listened, I would find myself smiling and sometimes laughing out loud at the fun flirting between Kevin and Emma. It was so refreshing to have a clean, romance in a modern Austen way!

just didn't have the patience to listen to this

The story set up okay but the pity party came on just a bit too hard and strong. Lost patience with the story development and the narrator is not a fit for this material which flattens the story even more. Needed some feeling of chemistry sooner some sparks.

Sweet Romance Between Neighbors

This was a sweet romance between neighbors, who at first glance did not like what they saw. Emma moved in with her nieces and beat up old car "Sunshine". Kevin hoped they were there to fix up the house and put out a For Sale sign.
Emma is stubborn and her pride keeps her from accepting help. At first, Kevin tries to help Emma with groceries, she isn't very receptive. She insists on paying him back. The way they go back and forth is cute.
The little girls help bring Emma and Kevin together, first out of need, then friendship that turns into romance.
I enjoyed reading/listening to this book. It was a quick, fun, clean, romance.

7hrs58m& 57s of my life that I will never get back

I decided to give this book a chance because it seemed a little out of the norm. After listening to this book, I know two things it will never be touched again but is wasn't horrible enough to ask for my money back. The heroine is not likeable. She is prideful to a point of stupidity and irritation. For example: You have gone to the supermarket with your coupons and have forgotten to check if you have the correct card (credit vs debit). The man behind you offers to pay for your groceries and you refuse. You demand that the cashier set aside your food so you can return with your almost maxed out credit card to pay for it or return it all while your nieces are screaming about how hungry they are and you don't have any food in the house you walk away from free groceries. Then when the man realizes that it's his neighbor buys the food for her and she still refuses to take it citing that she has gone back to the store to buy the groceries herself. That is not logical pride or not kids gotta eat. Her pride is apparently sexist. She will allow the female neighbor to do things for her but she won't allow the male neighbor to do. All through the book she does these irrational prideful things. For the male characters part he keeps trying to help her because she obviously needs it and she keep throwing it back in his face. Maybe the narrator didn't use the correct tone for the male character in the beginning of the book when he was being judgmental because he sounded reasonable throughout the book. There is pride and there is cutting off your nose to spite your face and if your that prideful how can anyone be around long enough to see through the foolishness. I just wanted to shake her, I made it through the book.

The narrator doesn't show much emotion. I secretly think that she thought that the heroine was ridiculous as well and didn't put her all into this book. There is slight discernment between the male and female voices. The bottom line is that if you want to your listening audience to feel the prejudice or the pride you have to emote and that's what good narrators do make you feel the words. The male character really didn't have any emotions that were felt until the author told you later what he felt and by then it's too late.

This book will go on my short list of never listen to again because it's just to painful. Not worth the credit or the money period.

My Musings

What a heartwarming story! I loved all the characters. The plot felt so genuine and not contrived at all, very natural. I’m so glad I found this book through the romance package on Audible. Happy reading/listening!

Did not finish. Not for me.

I got to the 1 hour 37 minute mark and could not go on. This couple doesn’t get along from the moment they meet and perhaps that’s supposed to kickstart an enemies to lovers vibe, but to me their stand-off became tedious instead.

The heroine has too much pride and insults the hero when he’s trying to show compassion, and he is a bit dense when he doesn’t listen to the heroine when she asks him not to behave a certain way.

But when he frustratedly asked a question I found offensive, I knew I’d had enough.

Perhaps the novel improves and both protagonists’ characters develop? I hope so. But I could not finish this book.
