    One thought on “Compromised!: A Pride & Prejudice Variation”

    1. Yes, as stated in another review on , the author would have been justified in adding an "s" to the end of her title. This book is delightful in giving us that situation in seriousness, in chance and in humor as we read of more than one couple's coming together"when you plan a trick on someone to get them alone" (as explained by a certain aunt to her niece).The characters of Darcy and Elizabeth are written with such poignancy in the very first instance of our reading, setting the stage for their [...]

    2. Compromised! - A Pride and Prejudice VariationWhat an enjoyable story about unintentional compromise of Elizabeth Bennet by Fitzwilliam Darcy. Sobbing over a letter he received from Georgiana, even though she dislike him going into that part of the garden, giving him comfort and trying to find a way to help him, she walked out realizing she judge him wrong. Preparing to leave the garden one of Bingley's newly hired footman catches them before Elizabeth can leave. Both realized, he without his co [...]

    3. This is a wonderful, witty variation that goes in some new and different directions. It starts with Darcy and Elizabeth needing become engaged because they are compromised and it's wonderful to see their love for each other grow. But there are various obstacles in their path, and they aren't the only ones compromised. :) The storyline with Bingley and Jane was particularly suspenseful and I couldn't wait to see how it would turn out. There were also some very fitting and humorous scenes, one inv [...]

    4. Compromised is full of compromises and was a lot of fun. Short and light with extreme characters. The Bingley in this book may be my least favorite Bingley of all time.

    5. It's a lovely D&E relationship story, that starts with Elizabeth compassion which ends up with a compromise. ODC resolve their problems pretty quickly, most of their usual misunderstandings are absent. Caroline and Wickham are vile and ruthless, but they got what they deserve. The Earl and Lady Catherine are self-centered schemers with no thought for other people. There are multiple compromises, some are quite funny. And more than one HEA, with some of my favorite pairings.

    6. Note: I really liked this book as I read it but it the light of day and reflection I find myself liking it less.Do you like angst with your Pride and Prejudice? Really like angst, think Jane Austen was way too generous with her characters? This is a mad cap, angst mix up. The only trope missing is that Lizzy never sprains her ankle nor is she successfully kidnapped.The story opens while Lizzy and Jane are staying at Netherfield. Whilst walking Lizzy encounters an anguished Mr. Darcy and offers h [...]

    7. Head hoping gets annoying fast.Might be nice idea gets tiring when you realize that each person will deliver their own dialogue from their own POV. POV changes are too frequent. Vernacular is inappropriate for era. The personality changes are grafted on in a clumsy manner. Mrs. Bennett knows she is silly and foolish, thinks Mrs. Bennett but she sensibly will do nothing to interfere with her daughter's courtship. Really? So self-aware? So intelligent? And then so clever? No. At 86% read it occurr [...]

    8. Being Compromised Is All The Rage in Meryton! After coming across a distraught Mr. Darcy in agonizing distress while walking in the glen near Netherfield Park, Elizabeth Bennet decides to approach the taciturn man and discover if she could be of any assistance. Even though she would rather leave him be. While offering Mr. Darcy compassion and comfort, Elizabeth and Darcy are discovered by a Netherfield servant. Alone. In the woods. Standing close together. Breaking all kinds of propriety…Both [...]

    9. One word "Compromised!!"J Dawn King does it again!!!! This book was excellently written, brilliantly captivating story of compromises and love!!! Miss King is a master at engaging you thoroughly to the point that you can't put the story down!!! I literally started reading this book this morning!!!This book shows various forms of what a compromise entailed to be in JA's era. The first of course is ODC!! This was the most innocent of the compromises. Elizabeth had a choice, to follow proprietary o [...]

    10. Quick read, but, as a result, our favorites characters were not given any depth. I felt their appreciation of each other a bit shallow. There was almost no witty reparte. I was also confused by the "love triangle." It just seemed that everyone fell in and out of love/ desire/ attraction too easily. The reader is left to question why some of the couples ended up together. The only thing noteworthy was the humor created when catching someone in a compromising position that people pointed and yelle [...]

    11. I think it was too much unbelievable.Imagine, Darcy receives a letter from his sister that she wants to go to Scotland, for a while (just to live in peace). He is so shocked and sad that when Elizabeth appears before him he hugs her. What?! As much as it sounds like a promise of a nice romance, it isn't Darcy!I tried to read it. But with every next page I was more convinced I don't want to waste my time with this story.It is for free now on , so you can try it for yourself. Perhaps you will like [...]

    12. It was a good read, but one that took me a long time. Perhaps I'm not a Pride and Prejudice fan as much as I thought I was.

    13. Hold your breath surprises, evil relations, jealous, conniving, husband hunterI almost didn’t buy this book. I read some of the reviews and didn’t think I could bear seeing a broken and vulnerable Darcy. Oh was I ever mistaken. I forgot that a phoenix rises from the ashes and boy did Darcy rise. J. Dawn King hooked me from the get go and I was on a speed ride for the rest of the book. There were moments of laughing out loud, holding my breath as a scene played out, squeals of glee, giggles, [...]

    14. I loved the love shared between D&E. I always enjoy when an author can give us a glimpse into the couples private moments. The secret words lovers share and such. There are plenty of moments where the pair whisper words of affection. I loved that the author let us experience their love. As always though I could always take a little more of those moments and even a deeper attachment and passion would have been pleasing to me but it is sweet as it is. Their are reviews which let you get a comp [...]

    15. 4.5 stars vs 5 only because it seemed like there was no end to the evil intent (practically excessive) to attempt to break Darcy and Elizabeth's engagement. In this P&P rebelling Elizabeth comes across Darcy on the Netherfield grounds in despair while she is staying there to nurse her sister back to health. Darcy has received a letter from Georgiana that shatters him and Elizabeth cannot help but pity the man crying before her. When she approaches him he wraps his arms around her for comfort [...]

    16. I enjoyed this tremendously. It is a different approach and I appreciated that. I thought it was a bit much by the last episode of compromise but nevertheless it was well executed. I enjoyed the explanations and had many questions answered within a few paragraphs of the question coming up. I loved how hard Darcy tried to comfort elizabeth and Georgiana. there are plot turns and twists galore. The relationships described have communication, caring and nurturing. Lord mat lock and lady c are repul [...]

    17. Compromised - A Pride and Prejudice VariationWell I just re-read Joy's story over again. It's one you like t go back to, now and then, because the love between Darcy and Lizzie is so sweet and pure in this version! Great Read!

    18. Okay, this is another one of those books I would have given a 4 instead of a 3 if there were not some mistakes that drew me out of the story line when I was reading. I will say that Ms. King does an excellent job with description and delineating characters. However, usage errors and errors that contradict what was said earlier in the story lowered my ranking. I would, in reality, give it a 3.4, but does not permit such distinctions. Point of view switches often between paragraphs. A closer look [...]

    19. Really enjoyed this variation that seemed to put a lot of focus on what could have happened if Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy were found together and forced to marry before the infamous proposal where she refused him (which didn't happen in this story).The whole idea of someone shouting 'compromised' and everyone freaking out and proposing did borderline on hilarious at times, but overall I liked how the author represented these characters. There were several new twists and turns that I haven't seen in [...]

    20. I enjoyed the first two-thirds of this book which, as the title indicates, explores Elizabeth's and Darcy's growing regard for each other following their being discovered in a compromising position at Netherfield. I really loved seeing Darcy and Elizabeth slowly find common ground and start building first a friendship, and then a romantic attachment. But the last third of the novel seemed to be nothing but compromise after compromise among other characters; it became almost ridiculous and nearly [...]

    21. It was actually a surprisingly Fun read. I also like that the author underlined Bingley's dithering wimp~like personality and did something about it. She also made Fitzwilliam and Charlotte very credible as well as Lady Matlock. She had made these characters more real. What I also like was that Mary Bennet and Anne De Bourgh were friends and that Kitty and Lydia though as silly as ever were not that offensive to Anne and Georgiana Darcy, instead all the young ladies had fun and amiable interacti [...]

    22. Adorable plot changes.While I adore Jane Austen in any form, I usually don't read the alternate story plot lines as they are perfect as written. However, I was curious about what the plot changes would be and if it was possible to enjoy the read. I can assure you that J. Dawn King brings the Pride and Prejudice to a new and fun conclusion. Enjoy.

    23. Things between our favorite couple seem to be resolved rather quickly, but than our villains and the rest of the family complicates life. The pace of trouble quickens as others discover their own parson's mousetraps. Fun.

    24. How many Pride and Prejudice variations can there be? Why do I read them? Never mind, this one at least captures some of the Austen flavour and gives us some satisfying comeuppances for all those villains and happier endings for the rest.

    25. Don't waste your time You know those times when you're reading a book with the hope that it will meet your expectations, but it's coming up short, yet you keep reading hoping it will get better. well, this one doesn't. It's a "tell" not a "show". Tedious, silly, thin.

    26. I have read several of Ms. King's "Pride and Prejudice" retellings and this was one of my favorites. I love how Ms. King stays true to the characters that Ms. Austen created while making a new and exciting adventure for the Bennets, Darcys, and Bingleys. This is a fun retelling and I highly recommend Ms. King's books to anyone who loves "Pride and Prejudice."
