This is an amazing set of books, each one 5 stars and I thoroughly enjoyed them all. Ms Alexander is a truly talented author and I absolutely adore her writing! The box set contains three books – Fisher of Men, The Catch and Siren Call.
Fisher of Men
I quickly became completely absorbed in Leah and Cap’s story, I think it’s definitely a story where you shouldn’t judge people’s lifestyles – everyone is entitled to live the life they see fit and whilst I personally may not want to live that lifestyle I admire the way the author has written about it. She went deeper into that lifestyle than what I thought about it and I really began to understand how that kind of relationship may work. I actually finished reading with a different view to when I started it.
I liked Leah and I could really understand her reticence, she has grown up being told one thing and it’s hard for her to accept that actually that may not be the way she wants to live her life. I loved her relationship with her friend and that they were there to support each other.
Cap was just HOT! I love a story with a more mature male lead, there’s just something a little sexier about all that experience and knowledge. He came across as a genuinely nice person and I could really feel the connection between him and Leah.
I admit when I first read the synopsis of this book I wasn’t 100% sure but I’m so glad that I gave it a chance and read it, I was totally hooked from the very start. I loved the main character Paisley. It was really refreshing to read about a character that’s not model think, but someone who is confident and sassy whatever her size! She definitely had no problems attracting the men! I haven’t read anything by this author previously but I will definitely be looking out for more of her books now. The character development over the story was good; it had a story line that was different and some great unexpected twists that made the story even more interesting. There were also some extremely saucy sex scenes – I was impressed with how well written these were. Another plus side to this book is the descriptive writing – I could imagine exactly what I was reading about, especially the layout of the club where the story is set.
I have been so fortunate to read a lot of books by this amazingly talented author now and whilst I’m not a huge fan of f/f books I knew I needed to read one written by her and I am so glad I did. I usually find that I’m not overly keen on f/f books because I fail to connect with the characters, I admit I love an alpha male however there was something about the characters in this story that made me love them straight away. There was every emotion I could think in this story and Phoebe Alexander has created such amazing, well developed characters in Jessie and Sirena. I loved the connection between the two and I really felt like I could feel it. Watching them navigate their pasts and begin to trust each other was a joy to read.
As always there were fantastic positive messages throughout the book – one of the things I love about this author! That along with great characters, storyline, pace and flow resulted in fantastic 5 star read for me!
