We first meet our Southern Belle, Alice, bent over in a cab gathering her belongings getting ready to move in to her sisters apartment. She is basically heckled by the next customer in line for the cab. When she gives him as much crap as he gives her, still bent over gathering things from said cab, she is surprised, once she backs out and bumps into him, to find him not only tall and muscled, but absolutely gorgeous.
Dare has never had anyone put him in his place quite as well as the mystery cab lady does. Her parting words sit badly with him though. He doesn't like thinking that what she said about him may just be the absolute truth. Ready to try and put it out of his mind he discovers she left behind a treasure trove of secrets for him to discover by way of her handbag, filled to the brim with textbooks, notebooks, and a vibrator???
Told in dual POV, these unlikely characters literally sizzled on the page. Dare is a famous New York artist and Alice is a grad student studying Clinical Psychology and Human Sexuality. Well written and well paced I really just devoured this story. The Chapter headers with well-placed quotes from Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland were great! Enjoy!
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!!
Alice and Dare felt too stereotypical to me, which made it hard for me to connect to them. Everything about their stereotypes was played up. Likewise, I couldn't form a connection to the supporting cast of characters.
The story did have a bit of an interesting premise, which raised the rating for me. It also felt like a cohesive story, despite the brevity of the book, so it also got marked up for that. One question I had though was why Alice wasn't using her professor's assignment as part of her defense at the inquiry. That omission made no sense to me, and would have been a valid way for her to defend herself, and possibly expose the unsavory professor.
I'm not sure I would continue the series, but it was a mostly engaging read!

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
