Borrowing Alex | [Cindy Procter-King]

Borrowing Alex

Nikki St. James knows kidnapping Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is probably a little extreme, but her fiance barely seems to notice her existence any more, and she needs Alex to help her get his attention. Besides, she's probably doing the college professor a favor he's so uptight a little R & R at a lakeside cabin is just what he needs. Not that she cares what he needs, or has noticed how handsome he is....

Publisher's Summary

What's a girl to do when her fiance won't set a date for the wedding? Pretend to have an affair with the best man, of course.

Nikki St. James knows kidnapping Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is probably a little extreme, but her fiance barely seems to notice her existence any more, and she needs Alex to help her get his attention. Besides, she's probably doing the college professor a favor - he's so uptight a little R & R at a lakeside cabin is just what he needs. Not that she cares what he needs, or has noticed how handsome he is....

Alex needs a break from his quest to achieve tenure at warp speed - but being kidnapped is not his idea of a good time; especially not by his college buddy's crazy fiancee! He's not one to judge, but if what he's heard is true that she's perfectly happy with an "open relationship" why bother to get married at all?

Alex quickly realizes he's been mislead about Nikki. Worse yet, he's beginning to fall for her. Can he make her see the truth about her impending marriage without ruining his chances for a happy ending?

    "Very disappointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm sure others would enjoy it. Those who enjoy books with absolutely no basis in reality.


    Has Borrowing Alex turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I could not decide if the narrator actually brought more to the story or detracted from it.


    What character would you cut from Borrowing Alex?

    The female lead character.


    Any additional comments?

    I typically enjoy light hearted romances. This took the stupid, naive female lead character to a new level. The nicest thing I can say is - bad, very bad.

    Story
    "Boring and Annoying"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This could have been a better story if the heroine wasn't so obnoxious and naive. The male lead came off as weak and a push over and saw the female lead's obnoxious behavior as cute...it was not cute.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Cindy Procter-King again?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    I like a narrator who can make a man sound and act like a man - both the man and the woman in this book came off as feminine and a bit on the numb side.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I kept listening thinking it might at least have a good ending...I was dissapointed.


    Any additional comments?

    I prefer authors like Susan E. Phillips, Rachel Gibson, Lori Foster, and Susan Andersen - all authors who portray strong women and strong men. The absolute best narrator I have ever had the pleasure to listen to was Anna Fields, who sadly passed away...but she was AMAZING.

    "A good chic listen"
    Any additional comments?

    Nikki had the perfect plan. She would Kidnap, or borrow her fiancé's best man to convince the gun-shy groom that it is time to settle down. Nikki wants Roy to come dashing after them in a fit of jealous rage, but when days go by without even a peep she wonders if she can resist the tempting Alex anyway.

    Alex, the handsome history professor, figures that Nikki has lost it. Roy has been telling him for years about how ditzy his fiancée is. Now seeing her in action, Roy may be right. When Nikki's logic starts to make sense even to Alex, he knows that his friend is going to lose the beauty that has now stolen his heart.

    I really enjoyed Borrowing Alex, it was smart and funny without being overdone.  The characters do some pretty funny things in the name of love.   I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book I find by Cindy Procter-King.

    Story
    "Cliché"

    I didn't know it was possible to cram so many cliches into one relatively short story. Just under six hours, and I had to force myself to listen. I can be a sucker for sweet romance, but this was bad. I wanted lemonade and got stuck with sticky molasses.

    I got really frustrated, not only with the story but also the narration. There's only one word for it: slow. I don't recommend this story to anyone.

    "Cute..."
    Where does Borrowing Alex rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Borrowing Alex is a nice change of pace from the books that i usually read. I'm glad that I took a chance on an author whom I've never heard of.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Borrowing Alex?

    I really enjoyed the antics of the older couple who lived next door.


    Have you listened to any of R.E. Chambliss’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    not sure


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would not change the title if this book were adapted into a film
