Overview

After being cheated on yet again, full-figured Alice O'Brien decides that she will leave behind her dreams of Prince Charming. From now on she will be a "love ‘em and leave' em" kind of girl. However, when she—literally—tumbles down a rabbit hole, she discovers that she has left the familiar chaos of San Francisco behind and stepped into something vastly different. And it is here that she meets the fierce, powerful shapeshifter named Jarronn, who is one of the four irresistible brothers who rule this strange and fascinating land. Jarronn quickly seizes Alice for himself and threatens to introduce her to untold pleasure and to steal her furiously pounding heart. However, Alice soon learns that Jarronn deliberately lured her into his kingdom in order to make her his mate in hopes of averting a dark danger that threatens his people. But can their bond of passion save them?

Loved it. Given the past books I've read about bsdm I was leery when that was the overall theme. However, this author did it without me feeling uncomfortable. Well done Milady!

This is the first time I have read a book about dominate and submissive sex. I really did not know what to expect. I enjoyed the book very much. However, this would not be the lifestyle for me....not in this extreme. I can still see how it benefits Alice. I very much enjoyed Alice as a character, she is overweight and insecure, but in the end she realizes that she is beautiful. She really is! I can not wait to read the rest of the series!

A Great Book Contemporary Fantasy Paranormal Romance Alice O’Brien has been cheated on yet again and no longer believes she’ll find a Prince Charming. She decides she is just going to enjoy men and not risk her heart again. Suddenly she leaves her familiar home in San Francisco when she literally falls down a rabbit hole. She lands in a world that is both strange and beautiful. She also meets shapeshifting brothers, that are all fierce and irresistible. Jarronn, though is that and also powerful and dominant. Jarronn has deliberately lured Alice to his realm because of the draw of a card foretelling his kingdom’s future. He hopes by doing so he will avert a danger that is threatening his people. His intention to save his kingdom is with his and Alice’s bond of passion. Nothing will stop him from making Alice his Queen of Hearts. This takes Alice in Wonderland and turns it on it head and inside out. It also makes for a book that is very hard to put down once readers start it. The world building is fun and full of wonder that makes for an amazing read. The characters are relatable and move the story along very well. Watching Alice start out in one place and ending up in another makes for an intriguing story. Readers will want to read the other books in the series just to see how everything turns out. This is also one book that having a glass of ice water nearby would be a very good idea.

If you enjoyed 50 Shades of Grey, you will enjoy this book. Read the whole series (4 so far and 1 to come). Super natural, sexy, explicit, fantastic!

I loved the additions done to this story. The original was great and I never thought that something was missing, but after reading this new version I can tell there was more to the story. I'm not sure about all of the social media references. The first two I thought it was a great way to bring the story up to date. But after the first few I thought it was a little much. I cannot wait until the next book is released.
