Spring Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her sustainable living thesis and to save the environment. Both seem hopelessly unobtainable until her college professor suggests that with a new angle, her paper could be published. Spring swears she’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that happens.

“Whatever it takes,” however, means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.

Henry is Spring’s only hope at publication, but he’s also the über-rich son of a land developer and cash-strapped Spring’s polar opposite. Too bad she can’t help being attracted to the way he pushes her buttons, both politically and physically. As they work on her thesis, Spring finds there’s more to Henry than his old money and argyle sweaters…but can she drop the loud-and-proud act long enough to let him in? Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and what she needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.

Review:

Okay, so the two things I love with Pride and Prejudice re-telling are finding the parallels and seeing how the author adds their own twist. Definitely, Maybe in Love is a super sweet and pretty adorable modern day adaption.

Spring and Henry are our Elizabeth and Darcy. I really liked them and their chemistry, as I liked the original couple. Spring is a bit of a tree hugger, and can be a tad annoying, but she’s also a bit sassy, and loves the environment and definitely doesn’t back down. She does have her little weaknesses that make her really relatable. Henry, oh Henry, he was basically perfect. Henry at first seems like the polar opposite of spring with her argyle sweater and study in law but as Spring finds out, there’s definitely more than meets the eye with Henry.  He gets over his pride pretty quickly and is such a totally sweetheart (and likes to sing in the shower). Also, the author put him in a cowboy hat at one point. It was amazing.  I basically loved all the moments they spent together.

I liked the college setting with the go green theme. Like I said, I love finding the parallels and  they were easy pretty easy to spot but at the same time, it had it’s own little flares. It was a fun, fresh take with some really sweet moments. There were bits and pieces that annoyed me a bit but overall it was a light and easy read, a cute retelling especially for the the Pride and Prejudice fan.
