Alex by Zoya Tessi – Review by Layna

ALEX: Perfect Opposite Book One (Extended edition)
Zoya Tessi
Publication date: January 23rd 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Their wishes were simple and modest. Fate had other things in store though, and she can be a real bitch sometimes.

All he wanted was to get the job done and somehow to endure those long months playing nanny to a spoiled little rich girl. Without strangling her with his bare hands in the process. Well, it is going to be much easier said than done.

All she wanted was to escape the past and live like any other girl. Her plan definitely didn’t include the arrogant, tattooed savage, with his awful mohawk and lack of social graces, whose only mission was to stick real close and mess up her life.

But, people aren’t always what they seem to be, are they?

I read the author’s note and I saw that Alex: Perfect Opposite was a re-publish, originally just called Perfect Opposite. It originally included only Sasha’s POV. I’m glad that Zoya decided to re-publish to include more story and Alex’s POV. I thought this was a wonderful blend of the two character’s POV and I think it would have seemed incomplete without it. I loved the banter between Alex and Sasha. They go on pretending to hate each other but eventually their attraction to one another wins out.

They both try desperately not to give in to their growing emotions, although they end up caring deeply for one another. This story takes such an unexpected turn in the middle of the story. I was speechless and couldn’t believe what I just read, so I had to go back and reread that section. Of course, I read it correctly the first time. After my initial shock passed, I continued reading, loving this completely unexpected twist.

This is going to be a part of the Perfect Opposite series, each is going to be able to be read as a stand alone. I believe this is a series that I could see myself getting into, enjoying each story individually. Alex was an enjoyable read, keeping me entertained the entire time.


Author Bio:

Zoya spent years doing volunteering work all across Europe, from cleaning school basements in Northern Russia to excavating Stone Age artifacts in Euskadi (the Basque country) and renovating castles from the middle ages in Southern France. She always dreamed of working with ‘Doctors without borders’ somewhere out in Africa, but ended up doing an ‘ordinary job’ in one of the smaller European countries.

Her greatest passion is devouring each and every book that comes within her reach.
