Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers....the place to be when your need to read is so strong, nothing and I mean NOTHING will satiate it EXCEPT for a few moments of pure bookish indulgence. If this description fills a bit familiar...welcome, you are among friends. ^_^
Today, we're exploring a Young Adult/Women's Fiction title befitting a wider audience than perhaps first intended and with surprising results. Don't be fooled by the title....though Austen-ites will clamor for this reading indulgence, it's perfectly wonderful for those that don't have a framed picture of their favorite representation of Mr. D himself (...and no, I'm not in the latter category, though there's nothing wrong with that).
So, ready to meet today's tour guest? Via I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, may I please introduce you to today's ebook of choice...
My Own Mr. Darcy
After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough. Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

Oh, but it is!
It starts with a trip to the movies with dear old Mom for a viewing Elizabeth and Janessa are less than happy to attend...yep, you guessed it, the equally loved and loathed Pride and Prejudice...continues with a search for a modern day Mr. Darcy, and finishes with...well, I can't exactly say as that would be ruining the surprise, but let's just sum it up as a journey worth the taking with a BIG reminder that dreams and fantasies are nice, but if the reality doesn't stack up, those blinders will fall of one day soon, hopefully not leaving you high and dry. You feel for our leading ladies , are grateful that a chance was given to both romantic options, and finally see the hearts of many for the truths they naturally hide.
