More About the Author

Alix Bekins lives and writes atop a treacherous hillside in the Santa Cruz mountains. Her days start with a cup of proper British tea, and end with crocheting ridiculous socks while watching TV. Alix is a sex-positive, kinky, belly dancing bisexual pagan. (The only reason "goth" isn't on that list is because she prefers purple or pink hair to black, and thinks absinthe is a terrible joke.) Her muses often wear the faces of her favorite celebrities and porn stars, but are nowhere nearly as cooperative.

Alix is pretty sure she's the only person in the world who wears a plastic Viking helmet as a thinking cap when she battles writer's block. She always wins.

Wonderful... if:

- You don't want romance straight away (it is slow to come)
- You don't mind reading about Hero 1 having dates and sex with other people. But RELAX, NO CHEATING. It was BEFORE he got romantically involved with Hero 2.
- You don't mind little sex as long as the sex is hot and cute.

AND if:

- You like varied and uncommon characters. You'll have a BLAST!
- You like them nerdy-smarty-grouchy and witty-funny. That's Bailey for you.
- You like when the 2 heroes bicker to death! I absolutely LOVE that in my romance and Bailey and John are the best at it. (By the way, good, excellent bickering can also be found in Megan Derr's "Prisoner" between Dieter and Berhat).
- You like when it is not syrupy.
- You like when it makes sense all the way. You won't have any WTF moment due to inconsistency.

Well written, funny, sarcastic, romantic read.

This was my first book by Ms. Bekins and I must say I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I'm always skeptical reading new authors (although that never stops me) but this story drew me in right from the start with its wit, sarcasm and fun plot.

The blurb does a pretty good job of highlighting the main points of what the story is about. The 'experiment' Bailey plays out is quite a big part of the story, actually, and not only is it hysterical what Bailey gets himself into but his wallowing in self-pity over having to write an accursed astrology column is absolutely hilarious. I very much enjoyed it.

Part of the fun of this story is the characters. Bailey is, essentially, the mad scientist but without a lab. He's a fact checker for John's magazine and never holds back how low he's stooped since he's such a 'genius' physicists. John is ex-air force and, more often than not, amused by Bailey's suffering. They are quite the pair, bickering and bantering, throwing barbs and insults. Honestly, I had so much fun with this story I wanted it to last forever. It also helps these two are friends for most of the story so it's a slow, sweet coupling.

While I liked the story, the run-on sentences in Bailey's POV grew a tad annoying. Not to mention the fact this physicists likes to 'think' and 'say' big words. I got confused a lot because of it :( Also, by the end of the story I was wondering what in the world happened to John's POV? He's there in the beginning (which I really, really loved) then just disappears. I would have liked to get his POV during a few of the scenes.

Overall, definitely a great story. If you're looking for something cute and funny with obnoxious but witty characters and something easy to read, PICK THIS ONE UP because it's all the above and more. :)

I enjoyed this story more than I expected to. It was consistently funny and enjoyable, and easily maintained my interest without being filled with serious drama or angst.

I especially loved Bailey, the main character. He is a complete mess, a neurotic genius who can never quite seem to contain the pressure of his thoughts -- which are constantly flying off in all directions at once. The author did a great job of making him both obnoxious and sympathetic at the same time, while constantly poking fondly at his soft underbelly. I wasn't so clear about John, Bailey's boss and eventual love interest, who was more of a mystery. Nonetheless, it's clear from the subtext that John has cared a lot about Bailey for a long time, and has been quietly helping Bailey all along without drawing attention to himself -- so he endeared himself to me as well.

All in all, this is a satisfying read. Don't expect any towering drama here, just get ready for lots of chuckles and a few satisfied "awwww"s.

Format: Paperback
After being blamed for a horrible screw-up at his last job, Bailey McMillan is in disgrace. As a result, he ends up working for his friend John's magazine, writing scathing reviews of his former peers' work. In order to get that gig, John forces Bailey to write an astrology column as well. Bailey is horrified, especially when people start claiming his columns are accurate.

Determined to prove astrology is not real, Bailey agrees to an experiment. He'll go on a date with a guy from each astrological sign to find out if he's more compatible with the signs astrologists claim he would be. After each date, he has to give a report to John. Unfortunately, Bailey can't seem to shake his crush on John, making their debriefing sessions difficult at best. Can Bailey prove his point without losing his mind?

I wanted to love Written in the Stars. Bailey is the kind of sarcastic, abrasive character I tend to like, and Bailey's experiment sounded like a good opportunity for humorous situations. Unfortunately, I found Bailey a little too abrasive. He's extremely intelligent, and he knows it. Not only that, but he has a tendency to want to lord it over everyone else. That made it difficult to like Bailey, or sympathize with his dating difficulties. It didn't help that despite his feelings for John, he has no problem having meaningless encounters with his dates whenever he gets the chance. Yeah, he's a guy, but it kind of killed the romance angle of the story, especially since his interactions with John were so short. I'd classify Written in the Stars more as a comedy than a romance, seeing as how there's not much screen time devoted to the main couple. Written in the Stars was an interesting read, but not quite what I was hoping for.
