Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson
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.
Prejudice Meets Pride is an adorable read! I loved it!
Emma is prideful, Kevin is prejudice. What happens when you mix the two?! A fun filled, hilarious story about 2 people from opposite sides of the "social spectrum" finding love in just the right place.
I loved the chemistry between Emma and Kevin! Things didn't start out so great between the two of them... he thought he was "helping" and she didn't like being a "charity case". I couldn't figure out whether I wanted to laugh or grown in anger at these two! And Kajsa and Adelynn were adorable! These two little ones definitely kept them on their toes and helped a little in getting them together. ;)
While I absolutely loved the book I was a bit sad when it just ended! I understand that this is a series but I would have liked a little bit more "closure" for these two. Hence the reason for the .5 deduction on the rating.
As usual Ms. Anderson's books were amazing! Can't wait to read the next book in the series and just more by her in general! :)
