Well, I get books shoved in to my hands and told to read. And I have to admit I rarely dislike what is handed to me. But being it's a female doing the shoving, I a male sometimes see things a shade different. In this book, we are in total agreement.
This is one dynamite book. A celebrating of Brit quirkiness, for wow-pow instantaneous attraction, of interesting well-drawn characters. I fear, however, maybe the Yanks will miss the boat, as they often do on British humour. I am hoping I am wrong on that assumption. MacAlister captures the Brit reserve and all the steaminess beneath, she fleshes out so well the almost proud indulging in off-beat behaviour the Brits adore.
It's wickedly funny, I pulled a stitch in my side laughing. It's fresh and charming. Alix is a pain, but she is a pain I 'know' in real life, adore and love, so it was a howl to see someone else understand a writer crippled with insecurities, someone who jumps at feeble excuses to hide their pain and vulnerability.
I especially loved the purple prose, shame we could not have a WHOLE Alix book. And I KNOW Alex is my brother....he even has green eyes!
