This review was originally posted on unConventional Bookviews Lie Jane Austen Told Me kind of blew me away I didn t know what to expect when I started reading but whatever it was I got much Story Lies Jane Austen Told Me is Emma s story How she kept her rose colored glasses firmly in place looking for her happily ever after Possibly she looked for this in the wrong places though and suddenly she wanted to distance herself from everything and anything that had to do with her former heroine Especially after she showed up at her boyfriend s place to surprise him And found him having dinner with another womanOne of the themes in Lies Jane Austen Told Me is to find oneself But it s also about finding love daring to believe in it and grabbing hold of it with both hands and everything else we got After Emma left Blake she met Lucas Blake s brother and that made things very complicated for all of themLies Jane Austen Told Me was a complex contemporary romance that also dealt with other subjects as Emma was working hard to help the company she worked for succeed When Lucas showed up as a consultant she didn t know whether she should laugh or cry On the one hand she wanted to get to know him better On the other hand she was sure she could manage on her own Characters Emma appeared a bit flighty at first she really believed in love with a capital L but once she thought she was proven wrong she did a complete 180 turn At least for a whileBlake wasn t a player but he also wasn t the right person for Emma They were together because of habit than because they loved each other dearlyLucas was great Not only was he a knight in shining armor he was smart funny and fiercely loyal too Writing Style First person point of view from Emma s perspective past tense Feels I felt lightness and love while reading Lies Jane Austen Told Me There was humor friendship loyalty and courageJane never had the happily ever after she made us believe we can have Experience from my collegiate years taught me that it wa far better to take advice from people who had walked the walk instead of just talked the talkWe awkwardly stood at our doors our demeanors suddenly stiff and uncomfortable as we nodded and parted ways to our individual rooms It was probable that the discomfort existed only on my side so much of what we did felt like datingThen came the self admonition You can t be mad at someone for being mad at you It doesn t make sense But I was mad at him Sense be hanged

Lies Jane Austen Told Me Read  108 Free download Lies Jane Austen Told Me D she's good at it which is why she bristles when her boss brings in a consultant to help her spearhead the new facilities on the East Coast Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake's younger brother Lucas Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas but as she gets to know him she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate What she can't understand is why Lucas continues to try to push her back into Blake's arms when he so clearly has fallen as hard for her as she has fallen for him It isn't until Lucas. 299 on Kindle 5620httpsamznto2YIIO8aSuch a fun story I loved how Austen was brought into the contemporary world influencing Emma even after the renouncement and showing why her classics are so well loved and still relevant I m not generally a fan of love triangles but since I knew from the synopsis that Lucas and Emma are meant to be together I was able to view the rest as providing conflict and obstacles to their relationship I loved the friendship they shared and couldn t wait for them to figure things out and get together While there is plenty of fun banter and snarky thoughts there are also deeper themes that are explored and I finished the book with a happy sigh I received a complimentary copy of the book all opinions in this review are my own
