#REVIEW – Mister Manhattan by Alexandria Sure

My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.

When she slipped back out with a snappy goodbye, I never thought I’d see her again.

Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.

At first, I didn’t recognize her—she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me.

When she gave the worst pitch I’ve ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door—except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.

I didn’t anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy.

But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.

And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about her.

So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn’t supposed to look.

I also knew I wasn’t supposed to cancel her date for later that evening.

And I definitely knew I wasn’t supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I’d done.

But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence.

When the date is over, I want more. I need more.

We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.

What could possibly go wrong?

This book. Ugh, I loved it so much! It’s sweet, funny and definitely what I needed. With everything going on in the world, this book took me out of the craziness of life, even if it was just for a couple of hours.
Jurnee (I love this name by the way) was in way over her head when she decided to move from Michigan to New York to set up a café. I totally understood her fear. New York is a whole other world compared to most cities. I loved how she wasn’t into pop culture or didn’t google people first. She was down to earth and definitely someone I could be friends with. She was real.
Anderson is definitely a hero you could fall in love with. He was patient with Jurnee and fell for her fast.
While they had an unexpected encounter originally after Jurnee thought he was someone else, feelings surfaced neither of them expected to have.
Although I haven’t read the rest of the books in this world or even if the originals, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. Alexandria wrote it in such a way, that it made me want to go back and read the others so I could see how Graham and Soraya met. I also like Anderson’s friends and would love to see them get their own stories as well.
This is by far Alexandria’s best work to date and I’m honoured she let me read an early copy!

#REVIEW #WOTRAUTHOR – In The Pursuit Of Charity by Alexandria Sure

He expected her to recognize him.
He expected her to be seduced by his charms.
He expected her to fall for him.
Expectations are a funny thing …

When his parents named him Herbert Lincoln James, they already had expectations that Linc would attend an ivy league university and go into politics. Linc didn’t. As captain of his swim team, he was expected to win the big relay to carry his swim team to the state championship for the first time in decades. Linc didn’t. Society expected him to walk past her. He couldn’t.

She expected him to see through her.
She expected him to make her into a joke.
She expected him to be cruel.
Expectations are a funny thing …

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Let me start by saying that reading the sweeter and less dirty books sometimes, is a nice change.

Now for my review. So…Linc is a professional swimmer. Athletic, good looking, has all the friends and gets all the girls. Oh and he comes from money too. Alexis on the other hand is none of those things. She plus-sized and closed off. Especially when Linc starts to show interest in her. I mean, after years of being talked down, made fun of and so on, who wouldn’t shut down and put up walls to protect their heart?

Man, did I ever feel for Alexis. Linc…at times I wanted to slap him but at the same time, I got it. These feelings were new for him. What I loved most about him was that he didn’t care about Alexis’s size. He could have stood up for her a little better – he even noticed that he made some mistakes in that department – with his mother who I loathe by the way and with his friends. Harrison. That boy drove me nuts and I wanted to punch him in the face. And his mother??? These people not being supportive of Linc and his feelings for Alexis, drove me crazy. Good job on that part, Alexandria!

As I was nearing the end of the book, I was on the edge of my seat. I was hoping and chomping at the bit for their happily ever after. Do they get it? I guess you’ll have to one-click to find out!
