Publisher's Summary

Come forth with an open mind, for an unconventional tale of love....

Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn't have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbor, Nicholas, takes a shine to her. Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny, and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of color when she's around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn't know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night. She is gob-smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself immersed in a world of wigs, make up, and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her incredibly beautiful employer. In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.

Something a little different

I bought both the audible and kindle versions of this book because I hate not being able to continue a story just because pesky things like work try and get in the way. I just plug and go when I can't read. I loved the story of Freda and Nicholas both a little bit broken, their vulnerability was what drew me to the characters oh yeah and Nicholas is hot and looks good in a dress what more could a girl want. Freda is a girl, like a lot of us, that struggles with feelings of self worth and body image in a world that judges you often by the size dress you wear. She often uses her humour to gloss over this. Nicholas has his own demons and it is only by coming together can they truly move on. Not heaps of angst which is good but I felt the connection between the characters and overall I really liked this romance with a difference. I would like the narrator to perhaps slow down a little and be a little more animated I just didn't feel the passion when listening that I did when reading it myself. I would buy from this author again.

Didn't get on with the narrator

Appalling narration, mechanical and monotone, unusual for a female voice to be so. I struggled to finish because of this.
Story was very good.
