Arden St. Ives #1
About the Author
Alexis Hall was born in the early 1980s and still thinks the 21st century is the future. To this day, he feels cheated that he lived through a fin de siècle but inexplicably failed to drink a single glass of absinthe, dance with a single courtesan, or stay in a single garret. He did the Oxbridge thing sometime in the 2000s and failed to learn anything of substance. He has had many jobs, including ice cream maker, fortune teller, lab technician, and professional gambler. He was fired from most of them.

He can neither cook nor sing, but he can handle a 17th century smallsword, punts from the proper end, and knows how to hotwire a car.

He lives in southeast England, with no cats and no children, and fully intends to keep it that way.

Rules are made to be broken . . .

If England had yearbooks, I'd probably be "Arden St. Ives: Man Least Likely to Set the World on Fire." So far, I haven't. I've no idea what I'm doing at Oxford, no idea what I'm going to do next and, until a week ago, I had no idea who Caspian Hart was. Turns out, he's brilliant, beautiful . . . oh yeah, and a billionaire.

It's impossible not to be captivated by someone like that. But Caspian Hart makes his own rules. And he has a lot of them. About when I can be with him. What I can do with him. And when he'll be through with me.

I'm good at doing what I'm told in the bedroom. The rest of the time, not so much. And now that Caspian's shown me glimpses of the man behind the billionaire I know it's him I want. Not his wealth, not his status. Him. Except that might be the one thing he doesn't have the power to give me.

Intriguing awesomeness

5.0

5++ I don't know how to express this...this awesomeness 

From the first sentence I was totally in and addicted. These are the sentences I crave for....every one.... read: e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e was captivating as hell...every line I absorbed and consumed like it was the best chocolate on earth.
For me it was an instant memorable read....an experience. I'm not exaggerating, it really felt this way...it was written in the best way possible...
It was funny so fucking funny I laughed out loud, at the same time it was heartbreaking damn I cried (also loud...)
It was strong forwarding and it makes you think and wonder. 
The self reflections of Arden are funny, witty and with so many layers it made my heart squeeze.
The appearance of Caspian was innovative....you could think you know what this is all about....but don't make the mistake....because it so much more. He is one big contradiction and endearing as hell.

Damn....the whole package was just perfect it was all I wanted of a story. 
And what I'm gonna say will sound very strange.... is wasn't even the content that made this perfect, more the way it was put down, the way it was written. Of course the story was amazingly good and captivating but I think this author can make gold of every storyline.

So.....the storyline.....

The prologue is intriguing as hell....

Arden and Caspian...

Inferior was the feeling he had when he saw himself pertaining to Caspian....and Caspian....?....didn't had a clou....didn't understand Arden or his feelings...

They made a deal....Arden is there for Caspian at all times and Caspian will take care of Arden at all times.

Arden...... even when he felt at his worst....utterly wanted to give Caspian a way out...a chance to make it all good ...he saw the man....really saw him.
What Arden didn't realize, was the fact that he was the center of Caspian's world.
Their connection is strong, only not in the way Arden had in mind...Caspian is sort of alienated...
Arden has a breaking point and that point is close....very close

All my negative feelings about serial reading evaporated with this one.... I will patiently wait for #2 No cliff here.... *swipe forehead*
