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....

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.

Good for a giggle or two

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

Surprising end, enjoyable

Wasn't sure about the heroin at first, but I stuck with it and wound up loving it in the end.

Unbelievable characters

All of the characters are have super exaggerated personalities. The main female character is over dramatic and get into situations that normal people just would never get into. The main male character is rigid to the extreme. I get that the author was trying to make it seem like opposites attract but this is just super unbelievable and painful to listen to. I have loved all of Katie's books, however this one I just do not want to finish.

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.

I laughed out loud with my head phones on and people giving me odd looks. she was juts and made me uncomfortable with her crazy adventures. only one complaint the ending needed more. more what I do not know.
