This was probably one of the most original and endearing reads of the year! It caught me off guard and kept me guessing. The characters were amazingly developed, and I completely fell in love with them! I really, truly liked it! I especially enjoyed the change of locale, as the story takes place in Dublin. And what a sense of humor! I laughed out loud many times, then peeked around to make sure no one was looking! LOL
The heroine, Freda Wilson, is not soft or feminine. She makes offensive jokes and always speaks her mind. She was a hit with me from the beginning! And when her gorgeous new neighbor, Nicholas Turner, starts to pursue her she is at first taken aback and unsure. Nicholas is a steady force who does not shy away from Freda's brash nature. Rather, he is drawn to it, and wants to be near her. When he invites her to his show, he doesn't tell her exactly what he does. And so, when she discovers that he is a cabaret performer of sorts, she is completely shocked!
I won't give away any more, but let's just say it gets very interesting from there! Freda is swept away into a world filled with temptations she has never known before. A very unique love story, indeed. And I loved it!
