Review Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson Blog Tour

  Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson Book CoverPrejudice 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 new neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.
Fun, compelling, and romantic, 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.


Tifferz Take~

Emma is helping out her brother Noah and taking care of her nieces! Emma is the girl who like to look on the bright side. It seems she is learning quickly about how to be a mother and is put in some awkward situations. Like how she meets her lovely neighbor Kevin. Wow. Talk about a unforgettable meeting. Kevin does a bit of assuming and thinks that the girls are Emma's daughters and not her nieces.  Emma so kind as she is does not offer up the info. But when Kevin does find out it is funny.

Kevin and Emma are both stubborn and feisty. They can't seem to grate on each other. But they have an underlying chemistry that sparkles like a sparkler! I love the fiery banter and that they just can't help them selves. I have to say my favorite part is when Emma leaves the girls with Kevin when his date he canceled to have dinner with Emma and the girls comes over and pretends that Kevin is her brother. It was priceless!
Emma does have to swallow her pride and accept help from Kevin.  Will things work with Kevin and Emma or will someone keep them apart? I loved this story. Emma is spunky and speaks her mind and Kevin is a sweet guy that never knows what he will get with Emma. So many layers to discover. A must read story that brings joy, happiness and the unexpected adventure. I am eager to get my hands on Noah's story! Excellent writing Ms. Anderson!!!

Just FYI- this story does not contain swearing or sex.

Jewelz Review~

I really enjoyed this sweet romance. Emma is pride personified. Having been raised by parents who worked for non-profit charitable organizations and relied on donations for their own survival, as an adult Emma refuses to accept any kind of handout - even if someone's just trying to be nice and lend a helping hand. Kevin is the personification of prejudiced. Like many people, he makes snap judgments on appearances before he gets to know Emma. However, the two can't help but cross each other's paths since Emma moved into the house next door to Kevin. With a little help from Emma's cute nieces and the friendly family across the street love begins to bloom between the two neighbors and once they start getting to know one another, they can't resist the attraction for long.

Rachel Anderson has written a fun contemporary romance that echos some of the themes from Austen's original novel of a similar name. In my opinion it's not your typical P&P retelling, it's a fun and enjoyable contemporary read that I was easily swept away in and can truly see it playing out in reality. I look forward to the rest of the series!

“This box is getting power, so it’s not a power issue.” Kevin was at the control box, checking it out. “Are you sure you programmed it right?”
“Yes,” Emma said crossly. Did she really not come across as someone with a brain? “I do know how to read instructions.”
A hint of a smile appeared on his face. “I’m sure you do.” He paused, as though trying to think of another reason her sprinklers weren’t working. “I’m assuming you turned on the stop and waste valve, right?”
Emma bit her lip. He’d assumed she’d done that, which meant any intelligent, logical person would understand what he was talking about. But Emma had no idea what a stop and waste valve was or why she’d need to turn it on. She’d never rented a house with a yard and didn’t know much about sprinklers. The house had water, why didn’t the yard? It didn’t make sense.
The corner of Kevin’s mouth pulled up, and he shook his head as though he couldn’t believe Emma was that clueless. He scanned the garage once more then strode forward and grabbed a rusted, metal T-shaped tool that hung between two nails. He carried it out into the front yard, squatted down, and pried off a green lid in the front corner of the grass. Then he plunged the end of the tool down, fiddled with it for a moment, and turned it slowly to the left.
Emma watched in fascination. So that was the stop and waste valve. Huh.
A spurting noise sounded, and little black tubes popped up all over the front yard, spraying a small amount of water only a foot or two in diameter. The girls squealed in delight, but Emma frowned. That wasn’t right.
“What the—” Kevin spluttered, jumping off the grass and onto the driveway. His hair and shirt were drenched, and no wonder. A tall fountain of water shot from the ground in the far corner, landing in the place where he’d just stood.
