Publisher's Summary

I'm Matt Hadder. I've been called ruthless, savage - even brutal - by the men and women who work for me. And I've earned my reputation. Wonderland Inc., a party planning organization for every major player in the world, is Oz, and I'm its Wizard. I can make anything - drugs, prostitutes, deals - appear for a night and disappear just as quickly. This doesn't make me good or bad - it makes me essential.

Wonderland Inc. was my life, until a beautiful contradiction of innocence and impurity, obedience and rebelliousness named Alex Little stepped in and turned both of our worlds upside down. Welcome to Wonderland, Alex. A place where everything appears normal. But we're all mad.

Down the rabbit hole and back again...

Max Monroe blew my freaking mind with this book. The dynamic duo never cease to amaze me with their witty literary brilliance.

fairy tale with a twist

Max Monroe has another hit. Alex and Matt will keep you on the edge of your seat, jeep you guessing, and melt your panties. Joe Arden has a voice that makes you puddle and Maxine Mitchell makes you become the character.

original

A very original story line...at least it was for me. But it was very good and the narration was great and made the characters seem so real!

Favorite So Far

Oh my!
Every Max Monroe book I’ve listened to/read so far and been awesome, but this?! This is my hands-down favorite!! Seriously. Favorite! Favorite! Favorite!

I loved dissecting the characters afterward and figuring out what character they were from “Alice in Wonderland”. So inventive. And then when I was able to figure out who was who, I mentally rolled my eyes at myself for not picking up on it earlier! 😂

I don’t know if the author or anyone from her team ever the reviews, but if so, I want you to know a few things:
1) Matt Hatter is the epitome of the sexy, alpha book boyfriend. I mean - dayummm!
2) Alex’s innocence was written beautifully. It wasn’t cheesy - it fit beautifully into the book and was a perfect counterpoint for Matt’s character.
3) Cal is a ROCKSTAR!
4) Eric was such a bad guy. Every time he was mentioned, the sense of foreboding came along for the ride.
5) This was a truly inventive retelling of a classic fairy tale
6) I seriously, seriously, seriously loved.it
7) I want a sequel! I don’t even know how it would be possible, but I sure would love it!

Ugh. Stupid characters. DNF!

I loved other Max Monroe books but this one was a huge disappointment.

I can’t stand books that showcase stupidity.

The book starts out defining the two main characters as smart and streetwise. But the majority of the book proves them both as complete morons.

Matt is so ruthless that he lets the people that are betraying him go free with no punishment? He claims she is his whole reason for living yet he leaves her knowing there were people that wanted to betray him? He claimed he was one step ahead yet allows them to kidnap her? And then he’s surprised??

The whole book was like this. I got more and more aggravated with the decisions these two idiots were making. I didn’t finish.

Interesting story

I liked the story. It kept you wondering what was going to happen next. It also made you wonder how the relationship between the two main characters would progress. Would she turn against him or join him.

Very Enjoyable listen

I very much enjoyed this audio book. From the clever character names to the dramatic storyline, the story sucked me in. A lot of retold fairytales are very cheesy and too close to the original, I liked that this book was very much NOT a cheesy parody of the original Alice in Wonderland. I do have to warn listener's of some crude language, but that didn't bother me too much. lol (wink)

Love Wonderland!

Truly love this book. I love how the alpha male, who is gruff to everyone but Alex. That is the way really love should be. The dynamics between Alex and Matt is super HOT!

We're All Mad Here!

I love twisted fairytales! This book was entertaining all on its own, but the one-liners that brought back memories of Alice in Wonderland made it so much more enjoyable. The characters were great, Matt was a hot alpha bad boy and Alex was an independent woman who just moved to LA and was down on her luck but rolled with everything life threw her way. Their banter back and forth was great from the beginning and some of Alex’s experiences made me laugh out loud (Marge on the Hollywood tour)!

As always, Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden are perfect together! Joe Arden does alpha bad boys like nobody’s business and Maxine Mitchell always makes the character seem so real! This bounced between a 3.5 and 4 star for me, the narration is what pushed it to the 4!
