Falling for Mr. Bingley

What do you do when you’re a contestant on a reality TV dating show and you find yourself falling for the presenter—not the bachelor?

Welcome to my world. I’m Phoebe Wilson, ultimate hopeless romantic. I mean, I’ve devoured Pride and Prejudice so many times that even Jane Austen would give me a high-five. Seriously, Elizabeth Bennet’s got nothing on me when it comes to dreaming about my own prince charming.

So, naturally, when the chance to be on the reality TV show “Dating Mr. Darcy” popped up, I was in faster than a squirrel in a caffeinated frenzy. It’s Mr. Darcy, people! The embodiment of romantic perfection.

The only hitch? My heart has taken a detour to the guy standing in the wings—not the one in the spotlight. That’s right, I’m falling for Mr. Darcy’s best friend, Mr. Bingley, aka Johnathan Bentley, the show’s presenter.

Talk about a plot twist. And here’s the kicker. I’m breaking all the rules and sneaking off for covert moments with Johnathan. Just me, him, and a whole lot of rule-breaking shenanigans. But as luck would have it, our secret escapades get busted and suddenly, we’re knee-deep in a drama cocktail mixed with secrets, lies, and a sprinkle of blackmail.

Will our crazy, against-the-odds romance survive this reality show rollercoaster?
