If you like Fifty Shades of Grey and Lisa Marie Rice, you'll love Alice's Wonderland.Alice's Wonderland was a good story, but honestly, I don't feel as if I have a lot to say about it. I really enjoyed the fact that it takes place in Australia, with the mc the owner of a lucrative sex toy business.
When journalist and notorious womanizer Flynn O'Grady publicly mocks Alice Mitchell's erotic luxury goods website, the game is on. Determined to change his mind about sex toys and the people who use them, Alice decides to wrap her high-end silken blindfold over his eyes and teach him a thing or two. They soon find themselves locked in a game where Alice must step up the spice night after night as, one by one, Flynn's defenses crumble. To win, she must prove to Flynn that changing the routine, rather than the partner, can be the greatest adventure of all…
As far as the characters go, I really liked Alice. She was a strong, independent woman who is control and proud of her brazen sexuality. She doesn't allow anyone to make her feel ashamed or inferior about her business, even journalist Flynn O'Grady. Flynn was... okay. He started out strong and I was sure I would be all hot and heavy for him, he's a sexy Australian sufer, for crying out loud. But for some reason, maybe because he's wound so tightly, he just didn't hit the mark. That's okay, though. It takes all types to make the world go 'round.
Alice's Wonderland started out very, very naughty. That Alice, she has some wicked tricks up her sleeve, and I like that. The cat and mouse game she and Flynn play was so fun and so sexy. Sadly, the second half of the book dealt more with the affairs of the heart than sins of the flesh. However, that aspect is appealing to those looking for more emotional than physical substance in their books.
Looking for a fun, flirty escape? Alice's Wonderland could be the book for you.
"Still, while Alice didn't agree with the raunch culture that prevailed at Hi Ho Silver, she'd defend (with one of their cheap dildos raised high) the right of any woman to take on a Tickler, Rabbit, or Climax Gem in the privacy of their own home." (eARC, 2%)
