Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson Book Cover 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 Review: I thought this was a very fun book. In a way, I could relate to Emma quite well. She is taking care of these two darling little girls and bad luck seems to follow her. She hates feeling like a charity case more than anything. She hates having to ask for help or for a loan or for...well...anything. I get that. I hate having to rely on other people and to have to ask for help. I'm not good at delegating because of that pride. Sometimes pride gets in the way of letting people help a person out. In Emma's case, she sometimes took things too far, but I thought it came off across as almost funny, especially when she started realizing that. Things all become clear later on in the book. I loved the way she came off across as being very right brained--creative and artistic. My heart melted at the way she handled the girls, especially the neighbor girl, Sam. 

Kevin. Could two people be more opposite? Possibly, but I loved the way he was so straight-laced and...almost boring, living his life almost exactly the way he was expected to. His left brain definitely loosened up and responded to Emma's way of life and he just couldn't help finding himself in the middle of trying to be her white knight. I loved the sparks of attraction. Both of them tried so desperately to avoid them, yet, like a moth to the flame, it was nearly impossible to do.

I love a good, clean, fun, funny romance and this one was perfect for my mood!
