Publisher's Summary

American Alexandra Freemar isn't about to put up with any flak from the uptight - albeit gorgeous - Scotland Yard inspector who accuses her of breaking and entering. She doesn't have time. She has two months in London to write the perfect romance novel - two months to prove that she can succeed as an author. Luckily, reserved Englishmen are not her cup of tea. Yet....

Good for a giggle or two

Not bad, the main character is a bit over the top drama queen but otherwise a cute story.

hard to like the main girl

insecurity overload with a man who puts up with more than is believable. they had awesome chemistry, but not sure that equals love. overall a stressful listen.

Fun

Katie Mac is never a disappointment.
I read Improper English years ago and must admit it was as nice as I remembered.

Hate, Hate, Hate the lead female character

This is the first review I’ve ever written. I couldn’t help myself. I wanted so badly for her to get better, for the rest of the book to make up for her nauseating personality... close, but ultimately no luck. Her awful annoyingness overshadowed the other charming characters.

I’d hoped for better

I’m not sure I’ve ever rolled my eyes so much at a lead. She is terribly immature, self centered and over dramatic. I tried to find humor in it, but it didn’t help. I simply couldn’t get myself to like her, and I couldn’t find a reason the love interest put up with her.

Couldn't finish. 2 chapters to go and I give up.

I can not describe the level of irritation and even a bit of disgust at the sniveling, childish, idiotic female that apparently everyone thinks is so smart and deserving of chance after chance. I get the point of the flaws is to watch the character grow once she feels she is deserving of love but man, I just want to see her get run over repeatedly.

Not a fan

I have enjoyed all of Katie MacAlister's books up until this point. The main character was awful. I found myself upset with how stupid and selfish she was for the entire book. Even the steps she took to better herself were selfish. if I had listened to this book 1st, I would not have listened to anymore by this author.

Not as good as I hoped

This book is very silly. It starts off ok, but the main character is needy and insecure and won’t trust her own judgement. I tried to push through, but about half way through her and the love interest get into an argument that is horribly immature and almost insulting to adults with important jobs and real relationships. I had to stop listening. I find this part utterly annoying and ridiculous. If any real life woman acted like that and blamed her lover for what this character does, her friends and family would be appalled by her stupidity and selfishness not babying her like in this book. I hate to be harsh because I know how hard it is to write a book, but honestly I was so turned off by that part that I will not be finishing.

Pretty Bad

I couldn’t get very far, it was very unrealistic & just plain bad for the hour or so that I listened.
I don’t enjoy being negative, but just thought I’d share my opinion & maybe save someone a credit.
