"Undressing Mr. Darcy" (A Disappointed Ashley Review)

Good Afternoon fellow readers,

  So, I hate to start the blog week off on a bad note, but I have to. "Undressing Mr. Darcy" by Karen Doornebos, started off good, but when I got to the kicker, I was highly disappointed. I was so excited to read this book, because I love Mr. Darcy and thought it would be a very good read. Yes it had a happy ending, but I had to skip after I found the kicker to the end just to see how it ended.





 Here is the summary taken straight from Goodreads....

  "Taking it off in the name of history…
Thirty-five-year-old American social media master Vanessa Roberts lives her thoroughly modern life with aplomb. So when her elderly Jane Austen�centric aunt needs her to take on the public relations for Julian Chancellor, a very private man from England who’s written a book called My Year as Mr. Darcy, Vanessa agrees. But she’s not �excessively diverted,” as Jane Austen would say.

Hardbound books, teacups, and quill pens fly in the face of her e-reader, coffee, and smartphone…

…Until she sees Julian take his tight breeches off for his Undressing Mr. Darcy show, an educational striptease” down to his drawers to promote his book and help save his crumbling estate. The public relations expert suddenly realizes things have gotten…personal. But can this old-fashioned man claim her heart without so much as a GPS? It will take three festivals filled with Austen fans, a trip to England, an old frenemy, and a flirtatious pirate re-enactor to find out…."

This was a good likeable book and I am happy with the person Vanessa ends up with, but I can't get over the kicker and how it all went down. It was a great concept and I only liked it to a point, but I couldn't stand when the main character became so obsessed with a guy and ignoring an awesome guy right in front of her face. What I don't understand is how can an author start with a strong character and then turn that strong character into someone you just loose all respect for and want to slap.

That is all I can say about this book......and I hate saying that I really do.

Until Next Time,

Ashley
