What if Alice didn’t fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, traveled through
Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:
New York City.
The best day of twenty-five year old Alice Leighton’s life was the day she got to put her nothing special, lil Southern town in her rear-view mirror. Good-bye to phony ‘bless your hearts’ and ‘I’ll pray for you’ crap, all while talking trash behind her back. She’s New York City’s latest addition and she’s going to work her ass off proving she earned her spot in the country’s top grad program.
Never again will she let some jerk derail her future and break her heart. Oh, and no more players. She’s D.O.N.E with the ‘cool guys’.
Getting caught up in Dare Grangeworth, the art world’s resident bad boy, was not part of her Alice 2.0 plan, even if he is just her type, with his beard, tats sleeves and intense green eyes. When he’s not dodging the press or his cultish fan base, Dare’s making art that makes a statement. Women seem to lose their heads around him – all the more reason why he finds Alice’s candor refreshing. He’s used to women giving in – not giving attitude.
He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, he becomes more than a simple outlier she can explain away. And for him everything starts to feel larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, all while desperately trying not to lose his heart.
Become lost and found in this re-imagined story of Alice and her cast of characters, in a world where Wonderland meets Sex-and-the-City.

Born in California and raised in South Florida, Harper Kincaid has moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on her head ever since. For years, she was a jill of all trades and a master of none, but is now tickled hot pink to pen stories that break and mend people's hearts for a living. Kincaid believes seduction occurs from the neck up, which is why her characters are smart, sexy, and slightly quirky - and definitely worthy to be your next hard-core book crush.
When not writing, she adores listening to indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl,  thetheater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds), and making those close to her laugh 'til they snort. She is a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but has now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia.

Meagan's Review:
Okay so let me start off by saying that I had no idea what this book was going to be about. I saw that it was a retelling of Alice in Wonderland and I was sold. Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite stories. I do want to say that while I loved every moment of this book and getting lost in the characters and the story line, I'm only rating this book a 3 out of 5 because for one I don't have a half system, but also because the ending, for me, came out of no where and ended very abruptly, that I wanted a little more if that was truly where the author was going to end it. It is honestly just a personal thing, but I got all excited for Alice and then we get one tiny piece and then the end. 
But outside of that little tid bit I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! OMG from the very first page to Alice and a man running into each other, her calling him City, him picking up on her southern accent and calling her Dixie and all sorts of other southern names, but really looking for her name. Alice pretty much on the side walk of New York City puts him in his place and he is so taken back by it, that he's immediately interested in her. She won't give up her name and they part ways. It isn't until he's in the cab that he finds her purse and decides back at his office that he is going to go through it. And my favorite line from this book came when he calls her to let her know he has her purse and even though she knows he's gone through it and has her name, it isn't until he actually says it that makes everything come together and ovaries explode. His line is simple and not noteworthy outside of text, but he says, "I think you know the answer to that Alice." And imagining him using her name for the first time is again the image of ovaries exploding. 
Alice is studying to become a sex therapist and even though this is the carer path she has chose, she doesn't have a ton of experience in that area. But her one professor gives her a task to complete for grad school and eventually she gives into her desires that she tries to play off as just a clinical experiment and begins a relationship/sexual relationship with City who is also known as Dare. I really like Dare's character and the fact that he knows who he is as a person, as a man, and as a man in a relationship. There's no I need to change my ways for her, or any of that I don't have my crap together. It's a nice change of pace. This book gives Alice and Dare plenty of ups and downs and curves and when something comes up that could not only threaten their relationship, but Alice's career will they survive? You'll have to fall down the rabbit hole and step into the world that Harper has created to find out. Truly is a good read.
