As always, Alice never fails to disappoint with the laugh factor. But what I was not expecting from her...was the fact that she made me cry. YES, I SAID CRY! And it had nothing to do with the love story, it had to do with Chloe's job. I'm an animal lover and this subject matter was just too much for me to be able to hold back the tears. Damn you Alice! It also warmed my heart and I can see a phone call to my local humane society in the very near future to help out. So not only does this lovely book that Alice wrote provide entertainment, it also promotes thoughts and actions of goodness towards animals in need of love.
Ok, so we have Chloe, leaver of fiancée on wedding day/ex-beauty queen, and Lucas, hot veterinarian/all together do-gooder. When Chloe learns of what Lucas recently went through with with his ex-fiancée she decides to keep her mouth shut about one VERY important fact about her. Big mistake, Chloe! Of course it would later come back to bite her in the ass, big time! Although, if she had fessed up to her "crime" these two may never have had a chance to even happen at all. Bravo, Chloe! Always make them fall in love first then fix the confessions later once they can't possible think of living with you. By the way, Chloe's failed attempt to get Lucas back...best failed attempt EVER! I almost believed it would work and when it actually didn't work, damn, grrrr, ah crap! Can't say she didn't try hard. Thankfully, Lucas is a smart man and came to his senses (after being away for far too long). Reunions of the heart sure can be as sweet as hell!
I always think that if I include all the best quotes in my review, it might ruin it for a new reader. Well you know what, fuck it...It's my review and I'm going to add it anyway.
"What if I told you that when I said 'keep bouncing on my dick,' it was really code for 'I love you?'"
"If that's the case, then you're gonna love what 'let me sit on your face' is really code for."
Bawhahaha God I love these two!
So, to sum things up, this book is not only funny with great characters, and not just as in well written characters (although that too is true), but good-people ones that change the lives of helpless animals. How could anyone not possible love all of that?!
Alice Clayton is a novelist with an unholy love for her KitchenAid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!
After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.
Alice has penned three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace.
Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at notyourmotherspodcast.com or over on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.
Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.
Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince Mr. Alice that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person…
