From first sentence to last Olivia Dade’s All the Feels is a prolonged attack on the softest, sweetest, & also screwball comedy-loving parts of me. I loved it from beginning to end—every note is perfect.
Alexander Woodroe, an actor on a Game of Thrones-type blockbuster show, has gotten into trouble again. The showrunner gives him a minder until the show airs, the man’s cousin, whose name is Lauren Clegg & who used to work as a therapist in an ER.
Their first meeting is not auspicious & the ones that follow don’t go as Alexander would like either.
Described by a coworker as a “delightful asshole,” Alexander runs his mouth like he’s training it for a marathon & Lauren has the patience of a saint. He wants her attention…& eventually her smiles, her laughs…& later, her touch.
& Lauren comes to see that beneath his cat & also orchid-like high maintenance traits 🤣 he’s a good person. A principled person. A deeply caring person.
I could list so many fantastic things about this book. How the heroine is quietly charismatic & & relatable & admirable & confident. Lauren’s strength of character, her figuring out how to set boundaries & take up for herself w/out allowing the bullies & harassers who make fun of her appearance to take too much of her life, & her Big Harpy Energy has me with mouth agape—I love her.
& Alexander, wow, what a hero. I adore him fiercely. As Lauren & others point out, he’s whiney & charming, his heart is so pure, & he sees Lauren as the remarkable person she is. His journey too is stellar—& his realizations about how he reacts to what happens to others—his impulsive protective instincts—are truly 👏🏻.
The humor, the heart, the steam: it’s a trifecta for me. I give this one 5 huge ⭐️; it lit up every part of my heart.
Release date: 10/26.
Give me that HEA, please.
