This review was originally posted on Of Pens and PagesThe Muse one of the first ever modern PP stories I ve ever read paved the way for my obsession with modern PP retellings You don t have to read PP to appreciate this gem It works perfectly as a stand alone contemporary romanceA story of pride and prejudice in the world of ballet The Muse stars Elizabeth Bennet a corps de ballet dancer at the New York Ballet theater and William Darcy a blue blooded renowned ballet prodigy turned choreographer The theater is abuzz as William Darcy returns to the prestigious theater after being cast as the choreographer of the latest performance Elizabeth having only recently joined the company greatly admires Darcy and hopes to be part of his latest workAlthough Elizabeth gets cast albeit a minor role in Darcy s work she overhears him saying something unpleasant about her cementing her bad impression of the man He is aloof indifferent to the corps de ballet dancers and to make things worse for Elizabeth he seems to be picking on her than the othersWe meet Elizabeth and Darcy at a particularly trying moment of their careers Elizabeth struggling to rise to the ranks of ballet hierarchy and Darcy trying to get out of his uninspired funk This opportunity the ballet theater s latest project gives the two the opportunity to get over their funk Elizabeth gets cast in the project and Darcy finds a muse in ElizabethThe story screams grace and sensuality with the elegance of the dancers movements and the sizzling chemistry between the artist and his muse It stayed true to the important aspects of Pride and Prejudice the essential characters and their roles adapted in the modern setting the difference of classes seen in the ballet hierarchy the misunderstanding between Elizabeth and Darcy but still managed to be its own story Caroline Bingley was still catty Greg Wickham charming and deceitful and Jane and Bingley all that is good William s sister Georgiana is not as reticent as the one in Pride and Prejudice She s a charming young lady who moved on from a trying past Reynalda Mrs Reynolds and Pepe are very important to Will and Georgiana and they show Elizabeth Darcy s human and kind sideI agree with Erika that the book should have included an index for the ballet lingo I m not ballet literate so it would have been nice if the book had a glossary he talks about the basics of ballet on her blog though here and hereIt s one of the books I ve read than once and one I m going to read over and over again Due to implied sexual content I recommend this to mature readers

E's one step closer to realizing her dream until she meets himWilliam Darcy the former dance legend and ballet bad boy is a jaded perfectionist whom dancers both fear and admire Although touted as the next big thing in the ballet world he secretly batt. This review was first published on Babblings of a Bookworm seen wonderful reviews for this book I was really excited to read it It s an updated version of Pride Prejudice set in the world of ballet Here William Darcy is the former principal dancer of the New York Ballet Theater who has come back to the company as a choreographer He is talented of New York aristocracy rich gorgeous and breathtakingly arrogant Elizabeth Bennet is an insignificant member of the corps de ballet Her sister Jane is a established member of the corps Elizabeth has never been as good as Jane shorter curvier neither of which are good for ballet dancers less beautiful and less of a classic ballerina She overhears Darcy saying pretty much exactly that to Charles Bingley artistic director of the ballet company and the boyfriend of Jane Darcy s comments flicked on a deeply held feeling that she s not as good as Jane and Elizabeth is very hurt and angryDarcy however has no idea of Elizabeth s negative feelings towards him He notices the feeling she infuses into her dance the expression in her eyes and arm movements He feels inspired to choreograph by her dancing Rather than feel appreciation for working with such a talent Elizabeth feeds her resentment towards Darcy focusing on his arrogance and constant corrections of her movements She also resents him for the depth of passion she feels towards him The dark timbre in Darcy s voice sent her flesh tingling She hated herself for it She hated the way she reacted to him She hated that Darcy despicable man though he was made her uiver in fear fury and fervor I thought this was an extremely successful update One thing I thought worked really well was the depth of Darcy s arrogance which is uite often reduced significantly in modern updates to help build sympathy for his character here Elizabeth doesn t get to see just how arrogant he is but the reader does as we are privy to his thoughtsOne difference from canon was the change in Elizabeth s philosophical attitude It is something that resonated with me as I read Pride Prejudice because I am uite like that myself there are many things that make me angry but I deal with things by tucking them away or laughing myself out of it which is very much canon Lizzy s philosophy too This Elizabeth on the other hand is a pretty angry young woman and she nurses her bitter feelings in a way that canon Elizabeth has the sense to laugh off This makes her a tad less likeable than Pride Prejudice s heroine especially when she takes things out on Jane who is just as nice as canon Jane so being mean to her is akin to kicking a puppyHowever other things were very close to canon such as the strata of levels of importance in the ballet company mirroring the levels in society that existed in PP I loved some of the nods back to Austen s work too the Lady Catherine de Bourgh character is a patron of the arts which is how the character saw herself in PP and the Sir William Lucas character is the artistic director directing the dance as he did in PPThis is a very readable and engaging work Although William and Elizabeth are both very flawed individuals you are rooting for both of them from the first and can see what each of them inspires in the other They have wonderful passion whether it is used for loving or hating and they both spend a lot of effort improving themselves in the light of what they learn from their interactions There are sex scenes but they are in flashback and not very detailed though they retain their steaminess There is some swearing but it s not excessive I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I d really recommend it It s a five star read in my book

Les a bad case of artist's block until he meets Elizabeth BennetTempers ignite between Elizabeth and Darcy but he's irresistibly drawn to the stubborn and beautiful corps de ballet dancer Could she be the muse he needs to reignite his passion for balle. An exciting modern PPJessica Evans is a new author to me I had seen this being posted on a fanfiction site but never got to read it until now This is just another modern PP that keeps knocking away at my dislike of modern PPs Oh I still love my Regency PPs better though authors are writing tolerable moderns lately In The Muse Elizabeth is the newest corps de ballet dancer at Ballet Theater of New York She has idolized William Darcy since she was younger and has been cast in his latest work With excitement coursing through her during rehearsals she works hard to advance herself in the company Though as we know all good things come to a halt she overhears things she weren t meant for her ears thus turning her against Mr Darcy William Darcy is the dance legend turned choreographer because of an injury He is a perfectionist who is both feared and admired He has a particular method of working with his dancers to bring the best out of them only this method seems to bring on Elizabeth s resentment even all the while he is and intrigued by her He singles Elizabeth out to sort through his ideas of the pas de deux in his piece But when he singles her out in class the jealousies that run amok in the ballet world take a toll on Elizabeth and her dislike growsThe Muse takes us through the lives of dancers You do not have to be familiar with ballet terminology though it would be helpful My biggest negative for this book is that I believe Ms Evans should have included an index for the ballet lingo I gave up uickly googling what the terms meant because it was detracting from my enjoyment of reading the bookMs Evans wrote a wonderful story that captivated me and had smiling with the banter or yelling at the characters for being such fools I loved how the characters were well written and developed to see their growth as the book went on showing passage of time was flawless I enjoyed the secondary characters new and old though still hated Caroline and Wickham for their horrible antics at deception and separation of ODCOverall I really enjoyed The Muse and look forward to any new books from Ms Evans in the future I would recommend this to any PP enthusiast though you don t have to have read PP to enjoy it
