Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson

After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie’s hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn’t about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome new neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.

Fun, compelling, and romantic, Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all

figured out and a girl who isn't afraid to show him that he doesn't. It’s about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them.


My Thoughts:

Prejudice Meets Pride is the kind of romance novel I love. Clean romance where the woman falls in love with a true gentleman. Emma Mackie has worked hard all her life to make ends meet. She’s tired of taking handouts and feeling like those that give it are looking down on her. She’s determined to do things on her own.  Meanwhile next-door-neighbour Kevin Grantham has led the life of one of the wealthy upper class. His dad is a senator and his mother wants him to marry someone with the right background and connections.

I love it when the books we read for pleasure also remind us of important life lessons. Prejudice Meets Pride does just that. Every relationship requires give and take. Everyone has to be a taker once in a while because no one is totally self-sufficient. That’s what Emma was trying to be. What she learned was that she needed to be a graceful taker so that others could have the pleasure of being a giver.

Kevin on the other hand was like those of us who desperately vow that we will never do the things our parents did. But he found himself being just like his mother, judging people by their appearance. Fortunately for him, he recognized this trait in himself and did something about it. His situation reminds me of a saying I once heard. “Don’t ASSUME anything. It makes an ASS out of U and ME.”

I liked each of the characters in this novel. If anything, other than the receptionist at the dental office, they were almost too perfect. You couldn’t ask for better neighbours than Becky and Sam. Kevin is the neighbour “to die-for” who is always there to lend a hand and seems to have all the right connections. Though we don’t see much of Noah, it’s obvious he is an amazing father to Kajsa and Adelynn. These two little girls are very sweet, though I did at times feel they were a wee bit spoiled since they needed to be bribed to do what they were told more often than I thought they should have been.

I thoroughly enjoyed Prejudice Meets Pride. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good clean romance novel. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Thank you to the publishers who provided a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
