Prejudice meets Pride by Rachael Anderson is about a woman, Emma, who dropped her life to help out her brother by taking care of her two nieces while he has to work. She moves into her run down great Aunt’s house. She is a very prideful woman who doesn’t like to accept anything from anyone and works hard to take care of herself. She does not like handouts. Her next door neighbor, Kevin, is a successful wealthy dentist isn’t too excited to be having Emma move in next door. He judges her quickly and isn’t used to her laid back care-free ways. But he keeps on finding himself drawn to her and her nieces and keeps on wanting to spend time with them and help them out. Emma on the other hand doesn’t appreciate his help.
I have read some other books by Rachael Anderson and I have to say I liked the other books better than this one. Some things just didn’t completely make sense. Why did Emma leave her job to move herself and her nieces across the country with no job prospects into a rundown old house? Why was she so extremely against anyone doing anything nice for her? Even after you find out more about her past I still felt like it was extreme and didn’t make sense. I liked Kevin, he seemed like a great guy. When Emma wasn’t being dumb I enjoyed their relationship. I liked that despite the way he grew up he became a better person. I felt like there was growth and change with Kevin and not so much with Emma.
So because of a few annoying things from this book I can’t say that I loved it. So I would have to give it a 4 out of stars. A quick clean romance.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
