Book Description

If there’s one universal truth, it’s this: You’re always wearing your worst underwear when you land in trouble.

Lola’s parents told her that everyone can make a difference. And she believed them. She’s been fighting the good fights since she was eleven years old. But at 23, Lola falls hard for an Australian stockbroker who thinks Doctors Without Borders is a porno and Joni Mitchell sounds like a harp seal being battered to death. She cuts him loose, but over the next fifteen years, through protests, misunderstandings, humiliating predicaments, and a number of poor underwear choices, their lives and paths continue to converge.

Along the way, Lola learns a few important life lessons: Never wear a red lace thong to a strip search. Make sure you take motion sickness pills if you’re going to the Southern Ocean to save the whales. And sometimes, Mr Right can be all wrong, and Mr Wrong just needs time to find the right path.

Funny, touching, emotional and political, Lingerie for Felons is Bridget Jones meets An Inconvenient Truth, about doing the right thing, finding the right person, and always thinking through your underwear choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another slam dunk from Ros Baxter March 1, 2014

This book reminded me so much of my twenties and thirties - funny, nostalgic, sad, thought-provoking. I didn't want to put it down. The hero and heroine have such great chemistry, I really enjoyed watching them come together and following their lives in between. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic comedy with a social conscience March 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lingerie for Felons is a funny, engaging romantic comedy with a social conscience by Australian author, Ros Baxter.

Lola’s parents have always told her she can make a difference and she is determined to do just that, whether she is wearing a red lacy thong or superman emblazoned undies. She can’t let the blazing chemistry she shares with Australian hottie, fund manager Wayne, who thinks Doctors Without Borders is a porno and Joni Mitchell sounds like a harp seal being battered to death, distract her and Lola is confident that breaking up with him is the right thing to do. But letting go is more difficult than she ever imagined.

I liked Lola a lot, she delights in bucking the stereotype of math geek, is passionate about important issues and loyal to her family and friends. But with her heart and her mind in constant conflict with one another she is never quite sure about exactly what she wants or needs. This is particularly evident in her relationships with Wayne and Clark, who both offer her very different things. Lola is an ‘all or nothing’ kind of girl and fiercely independent, unsure how to compromise without sacrifice.
It is fair to say though that Lola always means well, her ’causes’ often lead her into trouble (wearing unsuitable underwear), having never quite thought things through. She winds up in some odd situations, including jail three times, though luckily always with the support of her quirky, opinionated family.

The time shifts of the narrative are a little disorientating to begin with though eventually I settled into the rhythm. The prose is spiked with witty banter, the dialogue natural and the story is well paced.

Combining romance, humour, drama and politico-social commentary, Lingerie for Felons is an enjoyable read with hugely appealing characters and a happy ending that will leave you smiling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review for Lingerie for Felons March 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lola is a strong headed girl who is ruled by her passion of changing the world rather than her logic, and as a result, she often finds herself in awkward situations, and of course, wearing the wrong underwear for the occasion!
Regardless, she is quite likable and I was able to relate to her in terms of her poor decisions regarding her love life.
Wayne, on the other hand, sounds super hot, especially with the purposely added sexy Aussie accent.
At times I felt very frustrated with Lola and her inability to figure out what she wanted in her life, but I guess we all go through that at one point or another, the answer just always seems more obvious when its somebody else's life were following.
Ros Baxter's writing was brilliant as usual. The scenes going on in Lola's head were quite funny, as were the ones outside her head of course!
The only thing that I didn't like was all the jumping back and forth to different time periods. It made it a little difficult to keep track and I found it rather annoying, however, it all tied together well in the end so that definitely makes up for it.
I am definitely looking forward to reading more of Ros Baxter's work!

Rating: 4.5

I received a free e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars funny stuff March 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lingerie for Felons had a lot of funny stuff in it. I seriously LOL’ed several times while reading. Lola is a neurotic chick that wants too much to have her life contribute to making the world a better place. Unfortunately she makes her own life a hot mess while trying.

I felt a deep sympathy for Wayne. He was so sweet and she continued to be so mean throughout the book. . I really wanted to smack Lola when she would run from Wayne. I am stunned he kept holding on to hope for Lola to come around. I really wanted to hug Wayne at several points.

I had a hard time getting into the book for the several chapters, the funny parts were the only thing holding my interest. At about 40% the story itself started to take hold of my attention. There was a little too much politics involved for my personal liking.

Overall, I liked this FUNNY book and I would recommend it.
