Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams, a history major, an expert at the three Rs of Texas (readin', ridin', and ropin'), and she's not a girly girl. So when her Southern belle mother secretly enters her as a debutante for the year's deb season in their hometown of Dallas, she's furious-and has no idea what she's in for.

Megan's attitude gets her on probation with the mother hen of the debs, and she has only a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she'll get the boot and disgrace her family. The perk of being a debutante, of course, is going to parties, and it's at one of these lavish affairs where Megan gets swept off her feet by the debonair and down-to-earth Hank Waterhouse. If only she didn't have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her handsome but surly billionaire boyfriend.

Will Megan be able to juggle her soccer dreams and Texas society? Because the season has just begun, and the drama is just getting started.

Definitely for older teens because it talked about protagonist indecision on buying what kind of condoms & having to -ahem!- trim down there first time for Hank.
Read like what on CW under 30 series & Dallas the TV show on the fashion, angst, over the top incidents & the land deal fallout with a brawl. Predictable ,but fun read with the Perry Mason tactic to get out of slimy deal with oil company

A fun retelling of Pride and Prejudice told through the lens of wealthy Texans and their rigorous debut season. A bit frothy but had more depth than I thought. Fun to see how all the elements of P&P worked together to make this. Recommend for older teens as the main characters are in/just graduated from college.

The book felt like a poorly written Pride and Prejudice fan fiction at times along with an odd flow to the writing. Though I was excited for the ending after a slow beginning that barely drew me in; the more I read I felt like I just had to finish this book. It's a story about a soccer player, Megan McKnight whose mother has entered her as a debutante. While she’s against it she goes along with it as she can't stand for her pride to be hurt by quitting. She's not a proper Texas lady so you are on a ride with her through her failures and successes. What I enjoyed is the fairy tale atmosphere the authors were able to conjure with the lavish parties and perfect guys with flaws that enhance their character. The detail they've put in is a plus, at the same time a con as the excess detail about the appearance of a gun as an example ruins the flow created. There were many clichés in the story that I've grown tired of reading I loved how unordinary Megan was at times especially with her black eye. Definitely a humourous book with how she handles her problems. Very little foreshadowing, and if you've never read Pride and Prejudice you would have not caught how Hank was scheming against like how Wickham was in Pride and Prejudice. I would not recommend this book but perhaps a 13+ romantic maybe enjoy this story more than I did.
