Emma, our destitute heroine and a talented artist, gives up everything in her life to take care of her two adorable nieces for a year, but because of her pride is beyond rude to Kevin, the cute pediatric dentist next door who's just trying to help out his new neighbor. That part never worked for me--I understood why the book said her financial pride and independence were so important to her, but deep down I just wasn't really buying it. To thicken the plot, Kevin gives Emma a job in his office, [...]
Love, Love, Love!! Rachael did it again! This book is so fun.I'm a huge Rachael Anderson fan. The first blog tour I ever set up was one I offered to do for her book The Reluctant Bachelorette which has been my favorite book she wrote. I loved it and wanted other people to love it too so I took a leap and set up a tour for her book. Prejudice Meets Pride may have bumped The Reluctant Bachelorette off that pedestal as my favorite book by Rachael.Take one prideful girl and cross her with one [...]
The only likable characters in this book are the two little girls. Everyone else is ridiculous and all need to be punched in the face.
I am a huge Rachael Anderson fan, I seriously love her books. So, when I got Prejudice Meets Pride I told myself to take my time and maybe spread it out for the weekend. Nope, once I started reading I got sucked into the story like I always do and I couldn’t put it down. I guess I’ll just have to re-read it.Emma is a really likable heroine. She really steps-up when she needs to and would do anything for those she cares about. She has a big heart, lots of talent and she can be a bit stubborn. [...]
Just hint about Pride and Prejudice and you got me. Honestly, I am that easy. :)But if you pull my nose and lead me to expect something and then not deliver So I am going with dislikes first:- This is not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. The story is not the least bit similar. The heroine has too much pride and hero makes his opinion of her based on prejudice, but that's it. So, the title (although it matches the story) is misleading.- The writing was very shallow. Like something from categor [...]
It was short and sweet. I think I had expected a modern day pride and prejudice story that was closely based off the original, and this wasn't it.but it was still a cute read.
Aww que libro tan bonito, me mantuvo sonriendo como tonta a lo largo de toda la lectura. A pesar de que Emma me pareció un personaje bastante molesto. Por así decirlo.Kevin es un amor, aunque en comparación con Emma a este personaje le faltó más profundidad. Aun así lo adoro, en especial por lo ultimo que hace por ella. Lo mejor del libro son esas niñas. Un amor las criaturitas.Y también como que me gustó que sea una historia "inocente" sin páginas saturadas de sexo o lenguaje soez.
Rachael's best work. Sympathetic, yet human characters, wonderful banter, and some fireworks-inducing kissing scenes, mix with Rachael's trademark humor and observational skills to create a truly winning book.
Fue muy lindo, pero lastimosamente no se merece un cuatro o un cinco. Aunque me encantó, ciertamente, al personaje masculino le faltó mucho así como profundidad a las situaciones. Las niñas son adorables y te saca muchas sonrisas a través del libro.El primer pensamiento de Kevin al ver aparcado en la casa de su vecina un feo carro amarillo es que le traería problemas a su tranquila y perfecta vida. El primer pensamiento de Emma al verlo es que es condenadamente guapo y perfecto, hasta que [...]
I thought this was a very fun book. In a way, I could relate to Emma quite well. She is taking care of these two darling little girls and bad luck seems to follow her. She hates feeling like a charity case more than anything. She hates having to ask for help or for a loan or forwell.hing. I get that. I hate having to rely on other people and to have to ask for help. I'm not good at delegating because of that pride. Sometimes pride gets in the way of letting people help a person out. In Emma's ca [...]
Prejudice Meets Pride is a delightful, heartwarming romance. I read another of Rachael Anderson’s novels and liked it very much, so I readily agreed when the opportunity to review her newest release came up.Emma Mackey is a stubborn woman with a heart of gold. She gives up her dream job in order to take care of her brother’s two young girls after his wife is tragically killed. An aunt bequeathed a house to Emma, and she moves there with the girls. It’s rundown and needs work. Funds are low [...]
This was a cute romance, except for a few things that bugged me, and it's probably me being picky. But, the heroine's pride was a bit over the top, especially when you find out what it is based on. And no, she wasn't forced to take handouts from snide relatives. Also, the writer had a tendency to over explain things. Just say she tried to fix the mower or the sprinkler don't quote the repair manual. Even the descriptions of her art classes seemed like a how-to.As for the hero, he went back and f [...]
It seems that every time Rachael Anderson writes a romance, her stories become more stellar than the last one. And this is entirely true with this amazing book! First of all, there is nothing inappropriate in this book--you always know exactly what you are getting with one of her romances. What I did not expect was the spell-binding romance that had me quivering from the inside out and the laugh-out-loud humor (I indeed struggled during one of the latter moments in the book because I was in a cl [...]

Muy onda y fueron felices y comieron perdicesPeeeroooo.el resto de mi descargo, pueden leerlo en un espacio que gentilmente unas amigas me [...]
Rachael Anderson is a fairly new author to me but I've really liked the couple of books that I've read and have several more in my TBR pile.If you can't tell from the title, this is a modern take of Pride and Prejudice, but with a different storyline and characters. Emma has just moved to Colorado Springs with her two young nieces to help out their recently widowed father (her brother). Her car is 30 yrs old, she's out of money and getting by on her credit card, and needs a job but none of the s [...]
I loved the storyline for this book. Emma is just amazing! A little prideful at times but absolutely amazing. Her life story is slowly revealed and once it is, wow! Definitely explains why the pride and why it is hard for her to accept help. It didn't stop me though from wanting to tell her to wake up and just accept it already for heaven's sake! I love that she would drop everything because of her love for her brother and his family. She shows up in a new town in Colorado in her clunker car, mo [...]
Emma Mackie is a young woman who has recently graduated from a prestigious university and whose dream is to teach art. Soon after she gets her first job, one that could be exactly her dream job, she is forced to leave and take care of her brother’s daughters because something terrible happened to his family. Emma has no idea how to be a mother to those little girls but she is willing to do anything to protect and help them. The only thing she really cannot stand is accepting her handsome neigh [...]
This was not going to get 5 starsbut let me explain. I'm reading along, smiling, thinking of how I was going to state that it was an enjoyable ROM-COM and a quick read when I got to about 80% on my kindle, tears began blurring my vision and by 90% I was full out sobbing and blowing my nose - 5 tissues rating! That is what my daughters will explain about their mom - she rates in tissues.You have to understand about Emma: her parents are ones who work for charitable organizations so everything Emm [...]
This is a fun, entertaining read! I was pulled in from the beginning with Emma rolling into Colorado Springs in a thirty-year-old Datsun and parking in front of an unkempt home. Emma is helping her brother by taking care of his two daughters, Kajsa, 6, and Adelynn, 5. Emma's great aunt Maude is now deceased and they'll be living in her home. Emma calls her brother, Noah, to tell him they got in town and we start to get more of the story but it's a while before we get a full understanding of what [...]
When you first see the title, the first thing that comes to mind is Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice". While there are some similarities to the classic, this book has it's own character and story.Emma is taking care of her two nieces for her recently widowed brother. She has moved to a strange town, into a strange home, with strange neighbors. Fortunately all of the strange new things in her life work well. Her neighbors are wonderful, particularly her neighbor across the street, Becky [...]
I've enjoyed the other books by Rachael Anderson that I've read, but WOW this was unexpectedly terrific. Prejudice Meets Pride is Rachael's very best work (so far). I love books that ooze chemistry, and this one's got it. And the banter, the laughs, the kissesgh. I stayed up way too late reading this one. It's the perfect mix of sweet, silly, and swoony to get you out of a reading slump.I can't wait for the next book in the series. I can already predict which two characters it will be about, and [...]
Super fun clean romance. (Which I LOVE.) Can't wait to dive into book 2!
This book was adorable! Fun, sweet fluff at its best.(Thanks, Camille!)
Really Sweet StoryVery well written, sweet romance. I really connected with Emma, as someone who often feels indebted to others, and I understood her need for independence. I enjoyed her sense of humor, too. Great book for a leisurely read!
I've liked Rachael's books in the past, but I loved this one. I had to stand at my stove to stir my dinner so it wouldn't burn, with my Kindle in my hand because I absolutely COULD NOT put it down and needed to see how it ended. It was that good. I would even say it's Ms. Anderson's best work to date.Our heroine is Emma Makie, a woman who has just taken temporary custody of her two young nieces after their mother passes away. Her old Aunt Maude left her a house that was in need of a lot of work, [...]

Oh my THAT is a perfect description!! This is the first Rachael Anderson book I have read. Apparently I need to read more of hers. I LOVED this book. It was so sweet an [...]
Blurb about the book: When tragedy strikes, Emma makes 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. The only thing she has is her pride. When her neighbor Kevin repeatedly bruises her pride, sparks fly.I was expecting a Pride and Prejudice remake (which I really love) but didn't have my hopes set too high. There are so many spin offs and re-tellings of P & P that a [...]
This is my first novel by Rachael Anderson, and I loved it. She does a marvelous job on creating likeable, realistic characters and a plot that holds together. There's chemistry with the two main characters, but they're not into "insta love or sex" within hours of that first meeting. What to me is more believable is that they annoy each other, and that would be normal given their personalities artist and a pediatric dentist. I was not familiar with this series by Ms Anderson-- "Meet Your Match"- [...]
I absolutely adored this book. It is very well written and I will definitely look for more from this author. This book is not the fairytale – love at first sight book. It is about two people who irritate each other, but fit together beautifully. Sometimes no matter who you have in mind for your perfect companion, it doesn’t always turn out that way. Love is the pull that brings opposites together. This book made me laugh, cry, and pulled at my heart strings. When life hands you lemons, somet [...]
I've been anticipating the release of this book for so long. Now it's finally here and I'm already done with the storyNow what. Rachael's books really need no reviews, they speak for themselves. Every single one of her books I have absolutely loved. I know when I pick up a Rachael Anderson book I will get a wonderful story, lovable characters, exciting drama, and an adorably clean romance. I find myself always wanting to step into the scenarios Anderson creates and live out the characters lives. [...]
