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....

Worst female character ever!

I was excited to read this book when I read the synopsis but the main character is terrible! So awful I had to stop listening..if you want to read about a selfish, childish, self entitled 29yr old read this book. So awful!

Annoying Main Character

I found myself completely annoyed with Alix! So much so that I struggled to finish the audiobook!! She seemed reprehensibly shallow, silly, whiney and too dramatic. I would have loved for Alix to say to Alex(ander) that she apologized for being a selfish twat for not considering his feelings and disrespecting what was of importance of him (his profession in particular). Yes, she did apologize, but I didn’t feel as though this was fully conveyed. Her unfortunate friends all deserved an apology for her being so rude to all of them.

I really enjoyed the concept, storyline of the book, narration, book title and the character of Alex(ander). He was a complex, yet simple, man that was so sexy!

Good for a giggle or two

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

Ugh

Okay so I normally love Katie’s books soooo much but not this one. The main character is a selfish brat and I feel bad for her fella. The voice actor did well but she can only do so much to redeem it. I just hope you’re more prepared for the character than I was. Honestly I wish I hadn’t listened to the whole thing. At least we still have the guardian books which are fabulous!

The most obnoxious lead character!

I generally don’t write reviews but this book is disappointing. The lead female is so obnoxious, I wanted to throttle her & felt bad for the lead guy thinking he wants her.

Nope, couldn't finish this one.

Saskia is great. I love Katie MacAlister's writing style & other books. However I couldn't finish this one. The main character Alix made me want to scream out of frustration.

Too Melodramatic

It’s hard to believe someone would be as melodramatic in their late 20s as Alexandra. And it doesn’t make any sense that a mature guy in his mid 30s would put up with her immaturity.

not my cup of tea

The main character is immature, sexually manipulative and borderline emotionally abusive toward her love interest.

If i could give this zero stars i would

Characters are terrible. The story arch is terrible and drawn out. The female Alex is a selfish and miserable and acts like she is the only one to ever get hurt from life. Just a miserable book, don’t waste a credit!
