and isn t out for Lizzy s best interests, Caroline Bingley is losing her grip on reality, and George Wickham does something really awful, he s not just a chancer in this, he is genuinely a bad person.The main problem I had with this book is that it doesn t really seem to have much plot, it just ambles on And there is so much repetition, masses of sex scenes, everybody saying how much they envy Elizabeth and Darcy s love match over and over again, lots of inappropriate touchy feely contact between them in this era that was dodgy behaviour and Darcy and Elizabeth hadclass than that I would say many people wouldn t be that touchy feely now, let alone then And Darcy cries at the drop of a hat which somehow didn t seem likely It s a shame, as I was hoping for better from this book What if Darcy never made it to Meryton and never had the chance to offend Elizabeth immediately What if instead her wit and cleverness warms him from day one and the two become inseparable What I loved about this variation Nearly everything I for some reason love when Mr Bennet is an antagonist He is very against Elizabeth being married altogether in this variation As much as I love

doubt I really think this version of their love story was beautiful I liked the new character Alex Carrington I enjoyed the evilness and the disturbed mind of Caroline Bingley What I didn t like this may seem like a long list for a book I am giving five stars I wavered and thought maybe it s only a four, but felt that I really did love this book so changed it to five This is definitely a MATURE AUDIENCE ONLY book With that being said, I don t at all mind the adult contenthowever towards the end it started to get to be sooooooo much that I was skipping it She describes their relationsVERY often I think my main complaint though is Richard Fitzwilliam Some variations like to really hone in on his attraction to Elizabeth, and this one is one of those He even claims to be in love with hereven after he himself marries That just made me uncomfortable and I could have done without it.Loved this book though and I ll read it again in the future ( E-PUB ) ☤ Chance Encounters ♝ Chance Encounters In Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice, Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives at Netherfield in a state of indignation and delivers an insult that nearly ended his future before it began What if he did not go to Meryton that autumn and instead met Elizabeth Bennet later in London during the winter What if their introduction was not an insult, but rather a challenge to smile, and how does the strength of an ex Full description I probably have problem with long stories But this story felt endless I had to take a break several times, because I was just so bored.

raised some strong feelings Some of the negatives were Mr Bennet s role, the number of technical errors, and the lack of development in Darcy s and Elizabeth s relationship prior to marriage Those, plus the fact that the book, Kama Sutra, mentioned as in the library at Pemberley , was not published during this time period, is another mistake pointed out in several reviews And with that some objected to the descriptions and or frequency of ODC s sexual relationship.I love the first chapter I love that in this story our favorite couple experienced love at first sight I have read and re read that chapter onthan one occasion For me it was so endearing So we don t have all the accusations of a totally improper family or of class differences before cupid strikes We are told of Darcy s father s directions to his brother in law as to what he wants for Darcy in marriage and just why We are told of an event in Darcy s youth when the father takes the son to a brothel for sexual initiation BUT then makes him promise never to plant his seed outside of marriage as this could leave disenfranchised children in the community And we also read why the father wants this for Darcy a very powerful reason And we learn that Darcy doesn t know this latter purpose in the relationship he had with his father and in the relationship his father had with Wickham.Then we are also told of Elizabeth s relationship with her father Yes, this book has the fathers playing roles in past and present circumstances We know the Mr Bennet of canon Many of us don t like that his indolence is a major contributing factor in the behaviors and personalities we witness in his daughters and even in his wife s silly actions and shrill exclamations In this tale Lizzy s father has reared heras he would have a son He considers her his companion due to her wit and her demeanor She gets his snide or humorous comments they share opinions through just a raised eyebrow or a smirk He DOES NOT expect her to marry and move away But he has not faced just how that desire plays out until someone in whom Lizzy is seriously interested asks to first court her and then for her hand in marriage This does not compute in his world And the outcome is disastrous If you like Mr Bennet, you may not want to read this book But one good effect to Mr B s observations about ODC is that he decides to change his treatment of his wife oh, no, she doesn t make a 180 change but she does put a lid on it.We learn that Mr Bennet has a past, one that no one has known about and one that now has a role in so many lives and relationships You may be surprised most of all by a certain Mr Carrington in this story.On the other hand, I did like Lady Catherine s change in character even though it didn t occur until there was a death in the family The Fitzwilliam family s role in accepting, supporting and then setting a standard for the ton s outlook on the marriage was a positive one Even within the family the older brother s marriage of convenience is affected by this marriage of love between Elizabeth and Darcy.I liked the development of Col Fitzwilliam s relationship with Darcy and with Darcy s love for Elizabeth, his and Darcy s acknowledgment of certain feelings and how he faced up to those, how he made a resolution to change and how he communicated the feelings, what they meant and how he changed He does get his happy ending.Darcy and Elizabeth begin a relationship which seems to be made in heaven BUT this tale gives themthan their share of trauma, of heartbreak, of learning how to communicate And it was gratifying to read that there were others in the family who observed the need to point out to one or the other how they needed to share even the ugly parts of their lives Darcy and Elizabeth grow and at times cling to each other against overwhelming events.There are other romances in this story Georgiana and, even Lydia, have love lives Caroline Bingley acts in a ghastly manner onthan one occasion Charles and Jane do not have the backbone to set boundaries with, again, horrendous results for ODC.The only negative, and this book does have 443 pages is that in the epilogue some facts are rather vague I had to wonder at offspring, gender, names, etc and other events referenced which kept our couple steadfast in their need for each other s support and love But all in all this was a long and satisfying book I would recommend it to all JAFF lovers Long boring sections.There is a story here separated by long sections that can be flipped over If you have the patience you can get through it After a while I began to Profile Mr Darcy and regard the obsessive behavior described as frightening I kept expecting the story to change with Elizabeth locked in an attic. This book was almost a one star and as I have great admiration for those who can create a story and bring it forth on the page, I have to almost loathe a book to not give credit where credit is due While the author s treatment of the Elizabeth Darcy love affair was handled anointly I feel the author made a huge error in making Mr Bennet a loathsome man, Wickham a kidnapping rapist, Caroline Bingley a maddened voyeur and Jane and Charles wretchedly selfish beings These character underpinnings This book was almost a one star and as I have great admiration for those who can create a story and bring it forth on the page, I have to almost loathe a book to not give credit where credit is due While the author s treatment of the Elizabeth Darcy love affair was handled anointly I feel the author made a huge error in making Mr Bennet a loathsome man, Wickham a kidnapping rapist, Caroline Bingley a maddened voyeur and Jane and Charles wretchedly selfish beings These character underpinnings greatly depreciated what could have been a great pp variation I will read anything by this author Loved it.
