#BlogTour~~Dating Down by Diane Louise
Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the life of her dreams.
Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well, almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.
Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.
Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her highbrow friends.
As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she knows about true happiness.
Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is sometimes a huge leap forward?
Sandy’s 3.5 Blush Review
Alexis Is a society maven, charity organizer extraordinaire and trophy wife surrounded by a group of wealthy vapid friends. They pity her behind her back and make catty remarks to her face because her husband has traded her in for a newer model. Her life has exploded in apocalyptic fashion and unbeknownst to her “friends” she is completely destitute.
To add insult to injury, her wacky sister, Candy, shows up on her doorstep dead drunk and owing the cabbie a small fortune. Not being able to pay, Alexis agrees to go out with him instead. She didn’t expect to have a good time and actually like the bloke. ?
Truth be told, at first, I didn’t like Alexis very much: She was snooty and looked down her nose at her sister and Bob. Though not deliberately mean, little by little she changes. Her heart defrost and she starts to see things through Bob’s eyes. He’s humble, kind, thoughtful and patient.
Dating Down turned turned out to be an enjoyable romcom. It was a funny, smart, sexy, quick read -a perfect pick me up. I did have to google some of the slang terms which I’m guessing are used by our friends across the pond. Turns out money only bought Alexis heartache. Everything she needed was right in front of her all along.
