“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”
The title play on “Alice in Wonderland” is what got my attention. That was where any comparison should stop.
Alice’s Wonderland is a high-end sex shoppe in Sydney, Australia. Alice works hard to run her business and find very exclusive lingerie and toys to stock her shoppe. She takes pride in her work and is suitably peeved when some blogger bad mouths her and her customers.
Flynn is a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” kind of guy. Commitment phobic as well as anti-anything being brought into the bedroom, especially toys.
But I love how Alice tries to get Flynn to see things from her point of view…there wasn’t a lot of talking involved! Hey, I’m all about “walking the walk, and talking the talk”. Flynn to his credit is open-minded to a point, and that’s where the conflict comes in.
Overall the story was cute. Not a lot of sex but there was a lot of heat! It was a quick, one-sitting read for a cold night by the fire.
