SUMMARY
What if Alice didn't fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, traveled through Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:
New York City.

Alice Leighton may have stopped chasing rabbits a long time ago, but that doesn't mean she's not up for some grown up adventures. What's not part of her Alice 2.0 plan: losing her head – and heart – to the rugged and enigmatic Dare Grangeworth. Women go mad over him, but not Alice.
No way. She may be curious, but she's not stupid.

Now the man used to being pursued is the one doing the chasing. He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, everything between them feels larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, but is it enough to keep Alice by his side in Wonderland?

5 stars falling down the rabbit hole for THE WONDER OF YOU!

When Alice moves to New York City, it's a whole other Wonderland she's encountering. Alice Leighton is working on her PhD in sexual studies at NYU, but she's in a bit of a pickle. The intense immersion class she's taking requires her to have sex with a partner for 4 months and document her experiences. When she meets infamous NYC artist Dare Grangeworth, she's intrigued, he's too arrogant and hot for his own good, something she has no interest in further exploring…again. But in addition to his cockiness, he's also persistent, and damn it, those qualities are exactly what she likes in a man. Dare agrees to be her co-Guinea pig, and very soon the two know they've happily fallen into the rabbit hole together. But when push comes to shove, will Alice be able to cut it in Dare's world?

THE WONDER OF YOU, the first book in A Different Kind of Wonderland series, has some of my favorite things: artsy fartsiness, sex sex sex and Alice in Wonderland. It's really an unfair advantage that Ms. Kincaid has me by the first 10 pages. I did want to smack Dare in the beginning, when they first met. NYC or no, rando street misogyny shouldn't be rewarded with hot elevator sex. Ok, now that the scolding is out of the way, the rest of the read was oh, so enjoyable! I dug Alice and her posse, I wish I could pinpoint the one I loved the most, but honestly, I can't wait to read each of their stories! I loved their tight relationship and fabulous differences. And I totally fell for Dare and his raunchy sweetness, too. Waiting impatiently for the next in the series to come out!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; mixed condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
