This Alice is all manner of sass, who is starting anew in New York City, the absolute perfect backdrop for this story. While she might be new there, she has a strong cast of sisterhood, each of whom will have fascinating stories to tell. But I digress......on her own, Alice is herself a woman you want to know, she is beyond smart, but what has to learn, can teach us all so much. With each turn of the page I fell harder and harder for her.
This is a romance and the object of Alice’s affection is Dare Grangeworth, who can easily go toe to toe with our Alice when it comes to Level-Ten sass. For me, Dare went quickly from cocky jack-hole to a really good man. He has a level of decency that is stamped upon his DNA, which plays out in all of his interactions.
Together Alice and Dare are pure electricity, you feel their attraction the very minute they meet and it is absolutely glorious!!! Their verbal sparring is the hottest kind of foreplay, it snap, crackles and pops like breakfast cereal with a couple of packs of popping candy added just for fun.
But also this book has a lesson that never felt like “a very special episode of......” I won’t spoil it, but only say that Ms. Kincaid does such an amazing job of putting a true modern twist on this story that you will be raising your fist and cheering for Alice right out loud!!
Now that I’ve finished The Wonder of You, I can’t wait to read Rayna, Caroline & Lulu’s stories. Harper Kincaid has set the table for a wondrous tea party featuring each one of these bad@$$ women!! For now, though jump down the rabbit hole along with the wonderful Alice and enjoy every moment!!
I think this is the first book by Harper Kincaid I've ready, and it will most definitely NOT by my last! I really liked her writing style and the way she crafted and told the story. Her characters are fabulously done, and you really feel connected to them.
This book definitely falls into my Rom-Com love, and I really think you all will enjoy the heck out of it! There are hot bits and parts, but it isn't the only part to the chemistry or the book - which I loved! I'm getting over all the hot and heavy being so much in your face and so much everywhere in the stories I read. Don't get me wrong - I like it as part of the story, but only when it fits and makes sense. Some books it feels forced or like it's dragging so they have sex - explicit sex. NOT IN THIS BOOK! I loved this story - it really is told so well.
These characters, Alice & Dare, I honestly really enjoyed them. I love the description of Dare in this book and I loved Alice's reaction to him. You'll know what I mean when you read it... The opening scene is Ahhhh - maze - ing. It is honestly what made me fall in love with the characters and the story and author's writing!! Even all the supporting characters in this book are so interesting! I can't wait to see more from them in the future!!
Alice Leighton just moved to New York and is working on her doctorate in psychology and human sexuality; she lives with her sister- and has an eclectic group of friends surrounding her. While moving in she gets into a fight over a cab, with an attractive man, what she doesn’t know is that he is about to rock her world. Even though she wants to make her own way in NYC, you can’t help but fall into Dare’s spell
Dare Grangeworth is swoon-worthy and is really well known in NYC’s art world. He is trying to get past an incident- that was by no means his fault- and move back into the public eye. He meets Alice and is immediately intrigued by her bag of tricks, and wants to get to know her on a more personal level.
The sexy banter that goes on between these two had me constantly turning the pages to see what was going to happen- and I loved that about this book. They seemed to really mesh, and even when the unthinkable happened to put them both into hot water- they solved their problems together- and in the end I was really happy with how it all panned out. The best part was the easy way they fell into a relationship despite their relationship baggage.
I can’t wait for more in this series, and I am sure I won’t be disappointed. And I am really excited I found a new to me author! Awesome job Harper!!

I loved it. It’s kind of a slow burn, which was cool. Don’t get me wrong, the heat and sexual tension is there, but it built in a wonderful way!Read more
