The Wrong Mr. Darcy by Evelyn Lozada
Romantic Comedy, Re-telling, Enemies to Lovers
Hara Isari has big ambitions and they won’t be sidetracked by her mother’s insisting that she settle down soon. She dreams of leaving her small-town newspaper behind, as well as her felon father, and building a career as a sports writer, so when she is chosen to exclusively interview a basketball superstar, she jumps at the chance. It’s time to show the bigwigs what she’s truly made of.
At the same time, she meets a rookie on the rise, Derek Darcy. Darcy is incredibly handsome, obnoxiously proud, and has a major chip on his shoulder. Hara can’t think of a man more arrogant and infuriating. However, fate keeps bringing them together―from locker rooms to elegant parties, to the storm of the century―and what begins as a clash might just be more complicated than Hara anticipated. When she begins to see Darcy in a new light, Hara is not quite sure if she should drop the ball or play the love game.Amazon

The Wrong Mr. Darcy, was a little Pride and Prejudice, and a lot of Basketball Wives. I didn’t know while I was reading it, but the author was on Basketball Wives, so that makes sense.
I felt like the plot was a little too drawn out. This book was full of drama, so if you are into that this is the book for you. For me, though, it was a bit much. Part of the reason was that I didn’t know what to expect from this book ahead of time, other than it was a Pride and Prejudice retelling.
I liked Hara, the female lead, but honestly not really anyone else. Even Darcy was just too aloof for my taste. This book was entertaining, and the overall plot was interesting, just a little too dramatic.
