The Austen Playbook Reviews

  • *The Angry Reader*
    Apr 14, 2019

    Though Pretty Face has been my favorite of Parker's books, the central romance in The Austen Playbook comes awfully close, if not surpassing it. I have a few minor reservations about other elements of this novel, but the romance between Freddy & Griff is swoon-worthy and just quite...

    The man looked like an assassin in a war film, and would be temperamentally suited to the part. He probably even orgasmed with a frosty stare into the middle distance. I finished THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK with happy tears in my eyes. This book gave me all the feels. And all the lols, too....

    Favorite Quotes: He was all injured gentlemanly charm. It would be more successful if she hadn?t witnessed him getting absolutely rat-arsed at a wrap party, whipping his trousers off, and drawing a smiley-face on his willy. Once you?d seen a bloke doodling on his dick with perma...

    I've given this an A at AAR. The Austen Playbook, the fourth in Lucy Parker?s London Celebrities series, is one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases of 2019 ? and I?m here to tell you your patience will most definitely be rewarded when it comes out. It?s got all...

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Coming from a legacy of actors, Freddy is only twenty-three and has been acting for thirteen years. After her father's career ended in a way that ...

    This is fourth in a series, but they are barely related at all so reading out of order works just fine, I think. Probably. I fell for Freddy and Griff hard. I love it when the main couple are just so right for each other and when each needs something the other gives them. I particul...

    The Austen Playbook was my most anticipated spring read. I love Lucy Parker and her books - I re-read them ALL the time. The Austen Playbook also happens to feature her perky heroine and a grumpy hero, so I knew this one was going to be spectacular. Lucy Parker never disappoints and ...

    This review can be found on A Take from Two Cities blog here. Delightful and witty with a great story to keep the reader fully engaged, THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK continued the series with the same quality of writing and development of characters that I have come to expect from Lucy Parker...

    4.5 Stars in a top-notch addition to a lovely series. The only reason I am not rounding up is I felt less sold on the chemistry between the two leads. I really liked them together. I thought they made sense and complimented each other in a supportive and necessary ways, but they didn?...

    4.5 stars -- I don't think I have the right words to sufficiently communicate how DELIGHTFUL this is. Ugh. These humans are impossibly adorable together, there's a "we're putting on a show trope" at an English country estate with a Jane Austen murder mystery play, and a past mystery th...

    4.5 stars This may be my favorite of the series thus far! If there's one thing I love about this series it's how original it is. I can't think of any other romance series or book that centers on London theatre, celebrities and the world of drama they live in. Each book in th...

    I would like to pull stars from the sky to add. This book is AWESOME! Some writers excel at writing romances, and that would be Lucy Parker! If you love a good story with strong characters don?t skip this author! Our heroine is an actress with a well established stage career. (Do...

    THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK, forth book in London Celebrities series, can be read as standalone and out of reading order when you, if this is your first Lucy Parker's book, decide to read more of her previous books. This is a feelgood romance novel about stage actress Frederica "Freddy" ...

    This is freakishly cute. I have been reading this all day and it just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Here are some of my thoughts: ? I love Freddy and how optimistic, bubbly, friendly, and bold she is. She is the one of those people you just can?t hate. I think she also ha...

    ***ARC received for an honest review*** I like Lucy Parker. I can depend on her for solid contemporary romance. And let?s be honest - I can?t say that about many authors. I like her funny, feminine, struggling heroines and broody-yet-terribly romantic heroes. She?s created an ...

    This is just - so sweet. Fits its setting well, too, in an intimate country-ish small-scale way. Parker repeats some elements from previous books (TV interview bombshells, a cast together in an out-of-the-way place) but I think they?re well integrated here. There?s also a similar f...

    3.5 stars. I liked the sweet love story in this book. H and h were well-suited and the development of their relationship was handled well by the writer IMO. I also liked the concept of 'the Austen Playbook' - both the app and the live performance. Unfortunately for me there were to...

    Lucy Parker?s books are always a delight to read, I?ve had a lot of fun with the characters that I?ve come across in the London Celebrities series, (there?s a few that you want to smack upside the head), but other than that Parker knows how to bring the swoon! And she didn?t ...

    Disclaimer! I got an ARC from NetGalley. This has in no way influenced my review. I had already pre-ordered my copy of the book months ago, long before the ARCs became available. Also, because I am terribly late in reviewing it, the book is available on sale from the e-book vendor of y...

    This was almost a five star read for me. I've been trying to catch up on my enormous backlog of reviews, and when I picked this up to give myself a refresher (it's been almost three months since I finished it), I ended up sort of revisiting it for a couple of hours. You know, not a ful...

    Though Pretty Face has been my favorite of Parker's books, the central romance in The Austen Playbook comes awfully close, if not surpassing it. I have a few minor reservations about other elements of this novel, but the romance between Freddy & Griff is swoon-worthy and just quite...

    The man looked like an assassin in a war film, and would be temperamentally suited to the part. He probably even orgasmed with a frosty stare into the middle distance. I finished THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK with happy tears in my eyes. This book gave me all the feels. And all the lols, too....

    Favorite Quotes: He was all injured gentlemanly charm. It would be more successful if she hadn?t witnessed him getting absolutely rat-arsed at a wrap party, whipping his trousers off, and drawing a smiley-face on his willy. Once you?d seen a bloke doodling on his dick with perma...

    I've given this an A at AAR. The Austen Playbook, the fourth in Lucy Parker?s London Celebrities series, is one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases of 2019 ? and I?m here to tell you your patience will most definitely be rewarded when it comes out. It?s got all...

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Coming from a legacy of actors, Freddy is only twenty-three and has been acting for thirteen years. After her father's career ended in a way that ...

    This is fourth in a series, but they are barely related at all so reading out of order works just fine, I think. Probably. I fell for Freddy and Griff hard. I love it when the main couple are just so right for each other and when each needs something the other gives them. I particul...

    The Austen Playbook was my most anticipated spring read. I love Lucy Parker and her books - I re-read them ALL the time. The Austen Playbook also happens to feature her perky heroine and a grumpy hero, so I knew this one was going to be spectacular. Lucy Parker never disappoints and ...

    This review can be found on A Take from Two Cities blog here. Delightful and witty with a great story to keep the reader fully engaged, THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK continued the series with the same quality of writing and development of characters that I have come to expect from Lucy Parker...

    4.5 Stars in a top-notch addition to a lovely series. The only reason I am not rounding up is I felt less sold on the chemistry between the two leads. I really liked them together. I thought they made sense and complimented each other in a supportive and necessary ways, but they didn?...

    Delightful. I might come back for more, but loved this one. ...

    4.5 stars -- I don't think I have the right words to sufficiently communicate how DELIGHTFUL this is. Ugh. These humans are impossibly adorable together, there's a "we're putting on a show trope" at an English country estate with a Jane Austen murder mystery play, and a past mystery th...

    ***#earc thanks to #netgalley for a fair review*** Hello, James Ford-Griffin, you sexy, sessy Richard Armitage-like beast of wonderment. You, my fictional friend, do not exist in real life. Nope, they don?t make ?em like you! That was really all I took away from this Austen ...

    4.5 stars This may be my favorite of the series thus far! If there's one thing I love about this series it's how original it is. I can't think of any other romance series or book that centers on London theatre, celebrities and the world of drama they live in. Each book in th...

    I would like to pull stars from the sky to add. This book is AWESOME! Some writers excel at writing romances, and that would be Lucy Parker! If you love a good story with strong characters don?t skip this author! Our heroine is an actress with a well established stage career. (Do...

    This book is like a long sexy hug and I very much enjoyed reading it. ...

    THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK, forth book in London Celebrities series, can be read as standalone and out of reading order when you, if this is your first Lucy Parker's book, decide to read more of her previous books. This is a feelgood romance novel about stage actress Frederica "Freddy" ...

    This is freakishly cute. I have been reading this all day and it just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Here are some of my thoughts: ? I love Freddy and how optimistic, bubbly, friendly, and bold she is. She is the one of those people you just can?t hate. I think she also ha...

    ***ARC received for an honest review*** I like Lucy Parker. I can depend on her for solid contemporary romance. And let?s be honest - I can?t say that about many authors. I like her funny, feminine, struggling heroines and broody-yet-terribly romantic heroes. She?s created an ...

    I just love this series. They are cute and fun and just so very lovely. ...

    This is just - so sweet. Fits its setting well, too, in an intimate country-ish small-scale way. Parker repeats some elements from previous books (TV interview bombshells, a cast together in an out-of-the-way place) but I think they?re well integrated here. There?s also a similar f...

    3.5 stars. I liked the sweet love story in this book. H and h were well-suited and the development of their relationship was handled well by the writer IMO. I also liked the concept of 'the Austen Playbook' - both the app and the live performance. Unfortunately for me there were to...

    I have loved all of Lucy Parker's London Celebrities books, and this is up there very close to PRETTY FACE with being my favorite. Freddy was such a happy, great heroine, and I sympathized so much with her as she feels completely stuck between the actress she wants to be and family exp...

    Lucy Parker?s books are always a delight to read, I?ve had a lot of fun with the characters that I?ve come across in the London Celebrities series, (there?s a few that you want to smack upside the head), but other than that Parker knows how to bring the swoon! And she didn?t ...

    Disclaimer! I got an ARC from NetGalley. This has in no way influenced my review. I had already pre-ordered my copy of the book months ago, long before the ARCs became available. Also, because I am terribly late in reviewing it, the book is available on sale from the e-book vendor of y...

    THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK, forth book in London Celebrities series, can be read as standalone and out of reading order when you, if this is your first Lucy Parker's book, decide to read more of her previous books. This is a feelgood romance novel about stage actress Frederica "Freddy" ...

    This is freakishly cute. I have been reading this all day and it just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Here are some of my thoughts: ? I love Freddy and how optimistic, bubbly, friendly, and bold she is. She is the one of those people you just can?t hate. I think she also ha...

    ***ARC received for an honest review*** I like Lucy Parker. I can depend on her for solid contemporary romance. And let?s be honest - I can?t say that about many authors. I like her funny, feminine, struggling heroines and broody-yet-terribly romantic heroes. She?s created an ...

    I just love this series. They are cute and fun and just so very lovely. ...

    This is just - so sweet. Fits its setting well, too, in an intimate country-ish small-scale way. Parker repeats some elements from previous books (TV interview bombshells, a cast together in an out-of-the-way place) but I think they?re well integrated here. There?s also a similar f...

    3.5 stars. I liked the sweet love story in this book. H and h were well-suited and the development of their relationship was handled well by the writer IMO. I also liked the concept of 'the Austen Playbook' - both the app and the live performance. Unfortunately for me there were to...

    Originally posted as a bookstagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BuG06Z1H37t/ Lucy Parker is one of my all-time favorite contemporary romance authors and she's an auto-buy/read author for me. Her upcoming book, The Austen Playbook, is a good example of why I love her writing so much....

    I have loved all of Lucy Parker's London Celebrities books, and this is up there very close to PRETTY FACE with being my favorite. Freddy was such a happy, great heroine, and I sympathized so much with her as she feels completely stuck between the actress she wants to be and family exp...

    Lucy Parker?s books are always a delight to read, I?ve had a lot of fun with the characters that I?ve come across in the London Celebrities series, (there?s a few that you want to smack upside the head), but other than that Parker knows how to bring the swoon! And she didn?t ...

    Disclaimer! I got an ARC from NetGalley. This has in no way influenced my review. I had already pre-ordered my copy of the book months ago, long before the ARCs became available. Also, because I am terribly late in reviewing it, the book is available on sale from the e-book vendor of y...

    This was almost a five star read for me. I've been trying to catch up on my enormous backlog of reviews, and when I picked this up to give myself a refresher (it's been almost three months since I finished it), I ended up sort of revisiting it for a couple of hours. You know, not a ful...

    3.5 stars rounding up to 4 because I really liked Freddy and Griff. I'll come and out and say it - my problem with this book was all the secondary characters in the background. If it had solely been about Freddy and Griff and their romance + the grandparent's plot line, it would hav...

    Though Pretty Face has been my favorite of Parker's books, the central romance in The Austen Playbook comes awfully close, if not surpassing it. I have a few minor reservations about other elements of this novel, but the romance between Freddy & Griff is swoon-worthy and just quite...

    The man looked like an assassin in a war film, and would be temperamentally suited to the part. He probably even orgasmed with a frosty stare into the middle distance. I finished THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK with happy tears in my eyes. This book gave me all the feels. And all the lols, too....

    Favorite Quotes: He was all injured gentlemanly charm. It would be more successful if she hadn?t witnessed him getting absolutely rat-arsed at a wrap party, whipping his trousers off, and drawing a smiley-face on his willy. Once you?d seen a bloke doodling on his dick with perma...

    I've given this an A at AAR. The Austen Playbook, the fourth in Lucy Parker?s London Celebrities series, is one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases of 2019 ? and I?m here to tell you your patience will most definitely be rewarded when it comes out. It?s got all...

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Coming from a legacy of actors, Freddy is only twenty-three and has been acting for thirteen years. After her father's career ended in a way that ...

    This is fourth in a series, but they are barely related at all so reading out of order works just fine, I think. Probably. I fell for Freddy and Griff hard. I love it when the main couple are just so right for each other and when each needs something the other gives them. I particul...

    The Austen Playbook was my most anticipated spring read. I love Lucy Parker and her books - I re-read them ALL the time. The Austen Playbook also happens to feature her perky heroine and a grumpy hero, so I knew this one was going to be spectacular. Lucy Parker never disappoints and ...

    4.5 stars This may be my favorite of the series thus far! If there's one thing I love about this series it's how original it is. I can't think of any other romance series or book that centers on London theatre, celebrities and the world of drama they live in. Each book in th...

    I would like to pull stars from the sky to add. This book is AWESOME! Some writers excel at writing romances, and that would be Lucy Parker! If you love a good story with strong characters don?t skip this author! Our heroine is an actress with a well established stage career. (Do...

    This book is like a long sexy hug and I very much enjoyed reading it. ...

    THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK, forth book in London Celebrities series, can be read as standalone and out of reading order when you, if this is your first Lucy Parker's book, decide to read more of her previous books. This is a feelgood romance novel about stage actress Frederica "Freddy" ...

    This is freakishly cute. I have been reading this all day and it just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Here are some of my thoughts: ? I love Freddy and how optimistic, bubbly, friendly, and bold she is. She is the one of those people you just can?t hate. I think she also ha...

    ***ARC received for an honest review*** I like Lucy Parker. I can depend on her for solid contemporary romance. And let?s be honest - I can?t say that about many authors. I like her funny, feminine, struggling heroines and broody-yet-terribly romantic heroes. She?s created an ...

    I just love this series. They are cute and fun and just so very lovely. ...

    Though Pretty Face has been my favorite of Parker's books, the central romance in The Austen Playbook comes awfully close, if not surpassing it. I have a few minor reservations about other elements of this novel, but the romance between Freddy & Griff is swoon-worthy and just quite...

    The man looked like an assassin in a war film, and would be temperamentally suited to the part. He probably even orgasmed with a frosty stare into the middle distance. I finished THE AUSTEN PLAYBOOK with happy tears in my eyes. This book gave me all the feels. And all the lols, too....

    Favorite Quotes: He was all injured gentlemanly charm. It would be more successful if she hadn?t witnessed him getting absolutely rat-arsed at a wrap party, whipping his trousers off, and drawing a smiley-face on his willy. Once you?d seen a bloke doodling on his dick with perma...

    I've given this an A at AAR. The Austen Playbook, the fourth in Lucy Parker?s London Celebrities series, is one of the most eagerly anticipated new releases of 2019 ? and I?m here to tell you your patience will most definitely be rewarded when it comes out. It?s got all...

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Coming from a legacy of actors, Freddy is only twenty-three and has been acting for thirteen years. After her father's career ended in a way that ...

    This is fourth in a series, but they are barely related at all so reading out of order works just fine, I think. Probably. I fell for Freddy and Griff hard. I love it when the main couple are just so right for each other and when each needs something the other gives them. I particul...

    The Austen Playbook was my most anticipated spring read. I love Lucy Parker and her books - I re-read them ALL the time. The Austen Playbook also happens to feature her perky heroine and a grumpy hero, so I knew this one was going to be spectacular. Lucy Parker never disappoints and ...

    4.5 Stars in a top-notch addition to a lovely series. The only reason I am not rounding up is I felt less sold on the chemistry between the two leads. I really liked them together. I thought they made sense and complimented each other in a supportive and necessary ways, but they didn?...

    This is just - so sweet. Fits its setting well, too, in an intimate country-ish small-scale way. Parker repeats some elements from previous books (TV interview bombshells, a cast together in an out-of-the-way place) but I think they?re well integrated here. There?s also a similar f...

    3.5 stars. I liked the sweet love story in this book. H and h were well-suited and the development of their relationship was handled well by the writer IMO. I also liked the concept of 'the Austen Playbook' - both the app and the live performance. Unfortunately for me there were to...
