Falling in love with a Bennet is not an option.

My mother has summoned me home to take my place at Bower Bouquets, and as the heiress, I’m expected to do as I’m told. I’m expected to sit by her side as she does her best to decimate the Bennet family and their flower shop, Longbourne. I’m expected to play by her rules, or she’ll ruin me too.

But the day I crash into Marcus Bennet changes everything.

And the kiss seals the deal.

If my mother finds out, I’ll lose everything—my family, my life, my security. Worse, she’ll make sure the Bennets pay for my mistakes.

Falling in love with a Bennet is not an option.

But I might not have a choice.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every Staci Hart book leaves me with a glorious giddy feeling. Her take on Pride and Prejudice struck a chord with me and each of the books in the Bennet Brother series, her tribute to Jane Austen, have become instant favorites.

There was something about Marcus Anthony Bennet that completely stole my breath, and it started with a kiss. Yes, the meet-cute of all meet-cutes was achieved when Marcu collides with Maisie Bower. But what brings them together, the Bower-Bennet feud is the very thing that will push them apart.

Insta-love doesn’t always work, but this one, well, it might be a personal favorite of all time. It was magical and I truly felt their connection. That I know is attributed to Staci Hart’s wonderfully poetic and picturesque writing. The once stoic Marcus finds himself completely entranced with Maisie, and I loved, loved, loved it! I always get a very clear sense of her characters’ essence whether they are forefront of the story or not. In this case, Marcus’ heart is on his sleeve:

” I was not a man who lost control, but when it came to her, I was a runaway train. And the desire to know why was almost as deep as my desire to know her.”

He’s never experienced an all-consuming romantic passion in his life, and now he’s found it in spades. In fact, while their growing love might occur in the dark, their passion seeps off the page.

I loved how the story was developed and how the duplicitous nature of Evelyn Bower is exposed. Her bad disposition might be attributed to her genes, but her hate comes from somewhere else. Thankfully Massie had a positive influence from her father, but her view of “family” is tarnished by her mothers’ need to control her. In Marcus she finds her champion but in the Bennets, she’ll find a home and happy future.

While the Bower-Bennet feud is resolved, we haven’t heard the last of Bennet’s. I anticipate much drama as the worlds of the Bennets and the crew from the Austen series come together in Pride and Papercuts. 5 Stars and series recommendation!

About Staci Hart

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
