She can score a goal, do sixty box jumps in a row, bench press a hundred and fifty pounds…but can she learn to curtsey?

Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams, but she’s not a girly girl. So when her Southern belle mother secretly enters her in the 2016 Dallas debutante season, she’s furious—and has no idea what she’s in for. When Megan’s attitude gets her on probation with the mother hen of the debs, she’s got 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, Megan thinks, being a deb might not be so bad after all. But that’s before she humiliates herself in front of a room full of ten-year-olds, becomes embroiled in a media-frenzy scandal, and gets punched in the face by another girl.

The season has officially begun…but the drama is just getting started.

Really I wasn't sure if I'd like this book I mean its about debutants and no. But I heard about it being a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice and I just had to see a couple chapters at least though. Those few chapters turned into the whole book and to say I devoured it is a good way to describe it. I loved the characters and I Megan's character, she was quirky, unique and interesting. She pretty much has a hard time holding her tongue and would do anything for her family or at least her father which is why she ended up in this debutant situation. I loved that once she set her mind to something she went full force, without loosing her self. Meaning after all the parties and dresses that she had to go through she set lines and boundaries and learned to get through things her own way rather then letting the people ahead of everything fully change her. That just wasn't her style she made sure her true self was shown in every dress and action. I loved how kick butt she was and that she was gutsy. She truly is a great character and I enjoyed her. Overall if you know the point of Pride and Prejudice then you'll know what this book is mainly about with a few twists and overall I found myself really enjoying this book.
