Review: Room Service

Room Service Room Service by Poppy Dunne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being inside of Alex's mind was a ridiculous ride of awesomeness. She was awkward, quirky, clever, witty, hysterical, and incredibly easy to like. Although her narrative ran rampant with self-mockery, she held a quiet sort of confidence. She not only accepted her flaws, she owned them. I couldn't help but admire her character.

Alex came from "old" money and grew up with its oppressive weight and expectations. After a failed relationship, she took off to the other side of the country, determined to make her own way in life. She began to work for the House of Jazz and now needed to find an amazing act to revive it. While doing so and staying in a hotel, she meets Ben, the man who delivered her room service order. After realizing that her ex will be at her brother's wedding, Alex offers Ben $300 to be her date. Let the high jinks and hilarity begin.

This book was sexy and sweet. It also showed Alex take a moment or two to reflect on her own thoughts, actions and expectations, which I appreciated because otherwise I would have been WTF-ing all over the place. This story was not only unique, but it was refreshing and even though this was my first read from Poppy Dunne, I predict that it won't be my last.
