    1. 3.5 Pleasurable Stars Eliza is an heiress in her sixth season She has money, manages her own finances and affairs, and has never been denied anything She has happily decided not to marry, but to live out the rest of her days quietly reading and spending time in the country Marriage would only cost her her freedom to do as she pleases, and would allow her husband to take over her finances And that is just unacceptable Eliza has no concept of carnal lust until she lays eyes on Jasper.Jasper is a t [...]


    2. After studying the writing craft for over a decade now, I d have to honestly say, I ve been ruined at least as an objective reader I can no longer slide blithely through redundant description, dawdling action or blah characterization I find myself constantly searching for , silently challenging the author to give me a reason to keep the book open, to ignore the push of real life and remain lost in their fictional world.And while charming, shocking, seducing or even scaring a reader into maintain [...]


    3. I did like this book but the story was lacking I must say if I was rating this book on the sex scenes it would have been a 5 star rating, lol I also did like the Hh a lot I just wished Sylvia would have spent as much effort on the story line as she did in the bed chamber.


    4. Read one of her other books This was not goodVIEWER S OPINION I felt like I was reading a boring textbook My mind kept wandering It was hard to concentrate and pay attention I did not want to keep reading, but I forced myself in order to give a complete review There was too much description about uninteresting things Many conversations felt like filler Too many events were told and not shown See Spoilers below for examples Some parts of the story weren t developed enough.The personalities were g [...]


    5. This was the first book I had read from the highly acclaimed erotic romance author, Sylvia Day Pride and Pleasure offers a nice romance with a historical setting There is the combination of lust and passion every erotic romance has, and sexy characters that made me anticipated for what was going to happen next The writing was great, and redeemed some of the aspects the novel was lacking I didn t find the plot original, as it s been used in so many books woman needs man to protect him, pays him, [...]


    6. Pride and Pleasure was given to me as an Arc from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review Jasper Bond and Eliza Martin have me all a flutter What a wonderfully, surprisingly, fantastic regency romance I have been on the outs with my regency romances lately, but this one was perfect A pure pleasure to read Eliza Martin is smack bang in the middle of her sixth and final season She is surrounded by suitors most of them fortune hunters who seek to better themselves with her very comfortable dowry. [...]


    7. Main characters Eliza MartinJasper BondWhat I Liked The story was very good and a little unusual Eliza is in her 6th season and doesn t want to marry, and if this wasn t unseen in the romance world, just think that she was a woman of business, she managed her inheritance and loved working with numbers We wouldn t have this book if something unseemly wasn t happening, so here comes the intrigue she hires Mr Bond to play at being her suitor and find the person who arranges some mishaps to happen t [...]


    8. Quite a few things in this book too me by surprise There were several things I predicted were going to happen that didn t Eliza, for example She was leery about marriage thanks to growing up with a mother who prized passion and love than anything else She s learned to be distrustful of men and their motives and really has no desire to be attached to one So I thought she d have a fit when she realized Jasper wasn t everything he d claimed to be, but Day really took things in an unexpected and we [...]


    9. There was nothing spectacular about this book The hero and heroine were dull to me It seemed like all they did was lust off of each other from the moment they met, but yet there was still no chemistry between them The story line was boring and I just couldn t bring myself to finish it I was expecting so much from this author.


    10. I m the typical reader when I have a book I want to devour in hand it doesn t take long to get it read, and then I m disappointed because it s over and now I have to wait for the author s next book So this time with a Sylvia Day book, I made myself slow down Savor Anticipate Hunger Need.It s not easy putting a great book down, but it s definitely worth it to make it last longer when reading someone like Sylvia Day.Eliza is a vintage Day character Intelligent, independent, self sufficient, strong [...]


    11. Well What can I say about this one My mother always said, If you can t say anything nice, don t say anything at all If I made it a habit to listen to all of my mother s advice, I wouldn t have anything to say about bad books With that being said, this one was rotten I was highly disappointed It wasn t a book, it was a novella and a poorly developed one at that It took too long to get to the point of the book which I still am unclear of That s not entirely true I do know the point, but it took 58 [...]


    12. 3.5Hay muchos momentos memorables sin embargo, al final no me termin de matar como la mayoria de las veces Al acercarse a la parte central de la sala, Jasper afloj el paso hasta casi detenerse Eliza lo mir , sorprendida al verlo totalmente absorto en una de las pinturas Ten a la cabeza tan echada hacia atr s que el ala del sombrero le rozaba la espalda.Ella mir a su alrededor y vio que la persona m s cercana estaba a unos metros de distancia De modo que, acerc ndose a Jasper, susurr su nombre Hu [...]



    13. PRIDE AND PLEASURE is one of those books that stay with you, not necessarily because of the story, but because of the writing This is less of a mystery than it is a simple yet wonderful character study, and that is my favorite kind of read.Eliza Martin is a closed, efficient woman who is in her sixth, and final, season for capturing a suitor, something she d rather not be bothered with She is independent and wealthy, and she is so determined to be the opposite of her mother, that she d rather re [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this book A historycal romance with a very unusual heroine I loved Eliza She s refreshing and fun She knows what she wants and what she has to do to obtain it There s no stupidity in her She s straitforward and outspoken I loved Jasper too He s also very intelligent and cunning They re very good together Their relationship is sparkling Excelent book Very recommanded


    15. This book was on sale and I could not help myself but read it, needless to say I did not enjoy myself The entire book read formulaic and I never felt any liking towards any of the characters The dialogue read stiff and most of the time I was just yawning and speeding through it so I could get to the end.

    19. It took me a while to really get started on loving this book, but I ve pretty much read it in one day if that tells you anything and it s not because it s a short book easy read There are so many things I like about this book Sylvia Day s writing, for one There is a perfect mix of dialogue and action, and not too much internal dialogue repetition The characters are just wow Eliza is such a starchy, smart, smartass, independent British blueblood that you can t help but like her Jasper is so perfe [...]


    20. A Charming, Unique HeroineThe heroine, Eliza, was such a breath of fresh air in Pride and Pleasure by Sylvia Day in fact, she was why I kept reading the book Eliza is a bit of a hermit and is a genius, yet she is unschooled in the matters of infatuation and desire She is so logical that the matter of passionate feelings is foreign to her She has been raised by her reclusive uncle who is a bit scatter brained due to his experiments he is a genius himself Eliza is a wealthy woman and someone is po [...]


    21. DNFI think up to date, this is my second DNF ed ARC.I tried my best to keep on reading it, but the characters were banal.The heroine is a very cool and composed virgin, the only one who gets her ruffled is the hero.The hero is a bad boy rakeAnd the rest is historyI recommend it to people who are in love with rakes and virgin historical romances I urge you to give this book a tryC Courtesy of NetGalley and Penguin Books Australia.


    22. I haven t read a Sylvia Day book since her Bared to You series which I still haven t finished reading all the books a few years back I forgot how good she was at writing the sexy times scenes Whew, I need a fan for those scenes they were smokin Oh, and the storyline was pretty good, too.

Opini o do blogue Chaise Longue girlinchaiselongueFoi preciso Pecado, para Sylvia Day se redimir aos meus olhos mas, a quest o mantinha se pazes feitas ou golpe de sorte Orgulho e Prazer era por isso, uma leitura em que depositava expectativas e algum receio, uma leitura que tanto podia ser maravilhosa como revelar se pouco tentadora A verdade que escusava de me ter preocupado Mais uma vez, a autora entrega nos uma hist ria de paix es e lux ria, que nos cativa tanto pela crueza das suas palavras [...]


    24. My daughter is a huge fan of Sylvia Day, I still enjoy historical sagas romances Nineteenth and twentieth century period peices.I understood that this era was a change of pace for Ms Day and I wondered if she would really bring it the way I ve heard.Pride and Pleasure was a very worthy effort.I considered Jasper Bond a complete gem.A straight forward, broken but determined man who recognized WHO he needed.In any era Bond would be a hard cookie for any woman to shake loose.Reading how this partic [...]

    26. No le doy menos nota porque no se puede Menuda birria de libro O mejor dicho, que mal escribe Sylvia Day Pero mal, mal, mal No entiendo porqu le dan tantos premios a sus novelas Parece que vomita palabras y hechos as al azar y le sale un libro Nada tiene sentido Los giros de la trama no son tal, es simplemente que se saca las cosas de la manga as porque s El protagonista masculino es el t pico prototipo de t o machito que le ense a a la t a lo que es el sexo y ella cae rendida a sus encantos y l [...]
