Assumptions and misunderstandings drive the romantic entanglements in this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. London masterfully updates plot elements and characters. Even on the page, Henry Knightly brings just as much smolder to the story as Colin Firth. Sadly, Spring Honeycutt is no Elizabeth Bennett. She lacks the intellectual wit and her version of feminism means refusing to listen to male musicians and calling her friend a “hoe-bag".

When Spring Honeycutt’s advisor sees her thesis proposal on sustainability, he says she could publish it — if she talks to an econ or business major to get the other side of the story. What she finds is the impossibly hot guy across the street — a law student whose name is on the building she spent last year protesting — is exactly who she needs to talk to. Knightly is everything she despises, so why can he get under her skin so easily? (ENTANGLED PUBLISHING, dl., $3.99, ISBN: 9781622661831, E, 17 & Up)
