Holy fucking hearts.
Did you just read that?!
If you did, I need your advice.
I met fallen angel princes; I met a Savage Duke; I met a Cheshire Cat.
And remember—how could you possibly forget—I’m the fabled Alice from the prophecy.
Just a twisted, dark version of the girl in Lewis Carroll’s old books.
Except in those books, there was a happy ending.
In those books, Alice wasn’t dating nine very different, very beautiful men.
But now that I’ve met the King of Hearts and the Mad Hatter, I’m not sure who the real bad guys are.
I’m the only one who can turn Underland back into Wonderland again.
But if I have a chance to escape the blood, the death, and the intrigue in this place, should I take it?
I’m Allison Liddell, and I’ve got a choice to make: stay here and fight the darkness, defeat the Anti-Alice, and survive the Torrid Tea Party … or run.
Tweedledee says I can change the world.
So if you’re reading this, will you help me decide what I should do?
I want to go home, but I can’t leave this place as broken as I found it, now can I?
ALLISON AND THE TORRID TEA PARTY (Book 2 of 3 in the “Harem of Hearts” series) — is a full-length reverse harem/new adult/dark romance novel, a gritty retelling of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Don’t expect a children’s tale; these characters are nothing like their more innocent counterparts. This book contains: drugs, cursing, violence, sex … and love found in the darkest shadows.
Curiouser and fucking curiouser.
Well this book would have been a five star if it wasn’t for the excessive use of fuck in all it’s forms. Fucker and motherfucker were used but not enough to count.
Allison has an annoying habit of being in denial of being the Alice. We do find out who all nine of her guys are going to be even if she is in denial of who they are too.
I liked this one so much more than the first book. I still like Allison except for the denial part.
Sometimes, our greatest fears are not our most obvious. Sometimes, our darkest terrors hide in plain sight.
Allison struggles throughout the book on whether she wants to go back home or not.
More plot reveal is given in this book on who the bad guys are and who the good guys are.
The Knave of hearts turns out to be a woman and she is a rightful bitch. I hate her. She can choke on tarts for all I care.
I am going into the final book today. This left on a cliffhanger just like the first book and I need to know how this ends.
