    275 3 Stars He was the most astonishing extraordinary human being All his imperfections his scars his need to control his lies were somehow assembled in such a way to me that made imperfect sense He was a logical disaster I have to admit I really struggled with my rating on this book While there were parts of it I really liked there were also uite a few parts that didn't really work for me But this is a personal taste issue and not necessarily something that was wrong with the book per say I think most readers would really enjoy this book Unfortunately I tend to be extremely picky when it comes to heroines and I also tend to nitpick So if there's something that bothers me from the start it will only get worse for me as I continue but I'll explain that further in the review After her mother dies Charlie Sykes leaves her entire life behind and moves to Australia Although she has a near perfect I she struggles to find a job But that all changes when she walks into the office of Jace Knight a renowned playboy and international hotelier that's looking for an assistant Although Jace is arrestingly gorgeous it will have no effect on Charlie at all After all he's not exactly Stick It material But the they work together the the attraction between them begins to show too much for Charlie to ignore Oh and there's also the small part of Jace possibly being a criminal that still continues to run in the underground network of mafia bosses and kingpinsCharlie Sykes may be gorgeous and with a near perfect I but she's what I would call socially retarded Honest to gawd if ever there was a fictional female version of Sheldon Cooper out there this girl is it She actually uses the term coitus for fuck's sake At times it was like listening to a robot attempting to understand human emotions She's reasonable to a fault I have never read about a heroine that has almost zero emotion to her and sounds everything out like a damn encyclopedia Bikinis are only for sunbathing I do no sunbathe And frankly it is one of the most irrational activities humans do Consider for a moment what aliens landing on Earth might make of a species that strips off clothing rubs itself in oil and places itself directly under exposure of harmful UV rays thus increasing risk of skin cancer threefold?

    Definitely not for meI rarely read books with stories set in Australia because as much as I like that place beach and hot men I can't really get into the lingo and cultureThe heroine also talks weirdly Not in a robotic and logical way that characters with social issues usually does but in a totally archaic way I'm sorry to inform you I cannot accompany you as I do not know how to swimIncorrect on all countsI informed him I have never had any of those But I do not believe my sexual history or lack of it is pertinent to the job interviewI appreciate your candor I heard myself sayReally Why on earth would a Yankee talk like a Victorian maiden? There's also a matter of fact that the hero talks funny during and after sex What's with the hoowza thing?Is that an Aussie lingo? I should probably ask my Aussie friends about itThe ridiculous plot also makes me DNF this thing I was confused as to what was happening The first part is good because Charlie is still amusing but the Secret Service thing came in and hell broke loose There's this gangsta part but there isn't The heroine is also indecisive and often contradicts herself a lot of times I'm itching to slap her I'm okay with not being able to choose immediately as long as the heroine do it in a reasonable way There's nothing reasonable with this heroineOver all not satisfactory You can see the two star to prove it

    Charlie Sykes is what others would call an odd duck to her it logically doesn't make sense as she has no feathers Charlie takes everything literally she analyzes and spends a lot of time in her head making a well thought out decision When she is hired by hotelier Jace Knight she is well aware of his reputation with his employees As Charlie does with every aspect of her life she lays it out why she is certain they would not work well together For the first time in his life Jace is completely intrigued by a woman and the he gets to know her the bewitched he isHowever not everything is going as it seems Charlie finds herself involved in a game of deception Jace is asking for her trust but Charlie is torn in several directions and is struggling to do what is rightHoly moly this was an intense and very seductive read You are pulled in by Charlie immediately at first I was not certain I would like the story as it is very descriptive in the beginning with Charlie's thoughts but it works She can make you feel awkward in her thoughts and has a few cringe worthy moments but you love her as a character Jace is a hard but fascinating character High praise can't wait to read from this author

    I love it when I read a book and am totally surprised by what I discover in between the pages I absolutely loved the first book in this series which has totally unrelated characters and can be read on its own so you know I was really excited to read this book My excitement and eagerness was totally justifiedI devoured the book That's the only explanation I have for how fast I read it It was like the only speed I had for reading this book was supersonic The story was that compelling and so where the characters I absolutely loved Charlie Charlie is someone one who is a straight shooter The nuances of life and people totally escape her She takes everything at face value until she sees otherwise or someone tells her of course That's not to say she's oblivious but she's just not hard wired the way the majority of the population is I liked Jace too He was a little hard to read especially initially regarding his intentions towards Charlie However he seemed to be on the straight and narrow and even when I learned my opinion of him didn't change much I liked how protective he was of Charlie There is some violence in the book but it wasn't too graphic It enhanced the story as opposed to being gratuitous and superfluous Of course it's a given with a book featuring organized crime Speaking of violence one thing I really didn't like was how Jace and Charlie had sex for the first time I felt like it wasn't fitting with Jace because he knew Charlie was different and uniue but he treated her badly While I know being extremely sexually frustrated can mess with your brain it didn't seem like Jace would've acted the way he did even being that worked up One doesn't become the Boss when she can't keep control over all urges Of course I didn't even know they were working their way to having sex I liked how I was kept guessing about Charlie and Jace being romantically interested and involved Their interactions never gave much away even though they always left Charlie hot and botheredLesley Young has done a fantastic job at giving readers a story with a new twist and that would be Charlie I've mentioned previously Charlie is a straight shooter and so very literal This is the first time I've read of a main female protagonist having anything like Asperger syndrome Now it's not said directly she has this austism spectrum disorder but I have medical knowledge and the signs she showed were definitely related to this disorder That totally blew my mind in a good way It made me love this book even I can't wait to see how I'm blown away by the next book in this series It'll be sometime before it's available but the waiting will be worth it

    #Omigah I want this sooo HARDCharlie Sykes relies on her high I to navigate the bafflements of life including people’s incessant irrational behavior—just barely When her mother passes she moves to Sydney Australia where she intends to pursue the conventional rites of passage every young American girl deserves namely landing a fulfilling job finding a home to call one’s own and partnering with a caring life mateMr Jace Knight international hotelier and reputed playboy has never met anyone like the absurdly blunt relentlessly literal and obliviously sexy brunette who applies for his personal assistant position It doesn’t take him long to realize how much he likes her uirky charms and her vulnerabilityThe trouble is Jace isn’t the only one fixed on her Seems his history—as the head of Australia’s leading criminal organization—may not be behind him Charlie soon finds herself immersed in a world of international espionage—from the hip city of Sydney to the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef to the wild Aussie outback—while a dangerous trap’s being set But how on earth can Charlie sort out a matter of betrayal when she can’t even account for the strange way Mr Knight makes her feel?READER WARNING This novel contains explicit sex

    I think is not a secret that I am a huge fan of Lesley Young I love her books her writing and herself as she is an amazing person I had the amazing privilege of reading The Frenchman a while ago and I was utterly thrilled with the new direction she took as an author I thought she couldn´t surpass her previous books but I was wrong because she did it again I was completely knock out when I started reading The Australian I was hooked from the very beginningThe Australian is a book full of secrets and mysteries where nothing is what is seems I literally couldn´t put the book down You will need a whole night to read it because I can assure you that you won´t be able to put it down At first what caught my attention was the growing romance but I have to say in the end I needed to know what the secrets behind the plot were I was biting my nails and reading as fast as I could to discover it Lesley Young created such a twisted plot in a very good way that you won´t see it coming This story consumed me since I started it I finished it in one day I have always wanted to go to Australia it has so many places to visit and is so far away from Spain that has that exotic appeal Plus Australia is the home of some seriously hot male specimens aka the Hemsworth brothers I mean Thor is from down there It is utterly clear that Young has made an intense research about the country and its language I have spent an amazing time reading a story that has also taught me useful wordsI loved how the author managed to create a multi faceted story It has romance mystery sexiness struggle suspense danger hope and happiness all woven together to create a tale that will grip your heart and mind in a delirious embrace The Australian is an ardent sexy and suspenseful page turner with unforgettable characters Jace Knight sight just the name is sexy is a wealthy businessman with a shady past who is trying to get the future he always wanted At least that´s what he thought till Charlie came into his life with her logic and all of his plans took a completely new direction I really loved Charlie I think she has become one of my favorite female characters of all times She is just so special with all of her logic I loved being in her mind and getting to know her Her interactions with Jace were just hilarious I loved every word in them She was so socially awkward that I sometimes felt identified with her because life would be much easier if everybody really said things directly Truth is a powerful weapon and I wasn´t totally convinced of it till I read The Australian I really liked Jace he was powerful without being utterly dominant and Charlie was just perfect for him she was strong and brave and knew how to face himI loved that we kind of get to know members of the Crime Royalty series I still hope there will be a Spaniard in their gang one can always hope right? If you hate those books were you already know from the very beginning how things are going to go then The Australian in for you because you won´t see anything coming It is full of twists mysteries secrets and of course scorching hot scenes A wickedly absorbing must read Can´t wait to read The American

    GENRE RomanceTHEME Erotica ContemporaryRECEIVED AuthorBLOG After reading The Frenchman I couldn’t wait to dig into the next installment Lesley Young has a way of creating intense bad alpha males and making the readers fall for the guy Yes they are normally overbearing and secretive but they are sexy as hell and have a soft spot for sweet girls This bad boy is even intense than the first and in all the right ways The Australian follows uirky Charlie Sykes a young woman who is looking to start over in Australia after the death of her mother Socially awkward and truthful Charlie stands out among the other interviewees for Jace Knight He is charmed by how literal she is and knows she can be of great value to him But Charlie isnt prepared for stepping into Jaces’ world his past is known to have many criminal connection and it seems Charlie is now apart of itCharlie is cringe worthy awkward sometimes but I found it hilarious how literal she was about every darn thing She was a tough one to understand sometimes and I did get frustrated with her because she just didn’t understand a lot of normal conversations But her literal sense made for some funny moments with Jace because he was shocked half the time with her comments Charlie is super innocent she grew up in a tough environment and her social life has never been great except for her one friend back in the states I adored her devotion to not allowing to be given things as gifts and wanting to earn her way She starts to mature threw the story learning from Jace wanting to understand his way of thinking and learning about their connection In the end she grew on me and her trust in Jaces’ innocents even though she was being told he was the enemy had me liking her and Jace has uite the reputation being a criminal and ladies man makes it hard for him to trust people When he meets the very unusual Charlie there is something about her that sparks something in him He wants to trust her and can see she is running from something He’s living a life with criminal connections but wants to put that in the past and move forward with his company Unfortunately his past isn’t easy to get rid of and he has “allies” and the government who are after him Charlie is innocent in all of this but he needs her for many reasons I loved how sweet he was with her even in the craziest of situations Charlie is put in a tough spot and he needs to see where her trust lies and hes hoping its with himOverall this was an intense rollercoaster of espionage and romance I loved the steaminess of the couple but also the secrets that were all revealed slowly throughout I wasn’t sure how it was all going to unfold and I hoped that Charlie would make the right decision in the end The story was fast paced through and though never a moment of dullness but all humor smoking hot romance and surprising twist and turns I cant wait to see what young comes up with next in this addicting series

    5 stars 3 flamesI don't give many 5 star reviews only 5 out of 125 books to date this year So you know when I do give a 5 star I really enjoyed the book And I really really enjoyed this book mainly due to our uirky female lead character Charlie Sykes She is my favorite female character of the year so far Charlie suffers from Pervasive Development Disorder which seems a bit like Asperger's to me She has trouble with social clues and deciphering emotions This makes Charlie a very literal logical and straight forward person I loved the way her mind worked and I think we would get along very well I felt very protective of her throughout the whole book so I was absolutely livid at these law enforcement officers who were putting her through the ringer I wanted to throttle them And since I work in the same field that is saying something Charlie was obviously not euipped to deal with the situations they were putting her in and they knew it She is such a different sort of lead character than we usually see in contemporary romance it was refreshing to have someone so uniue and endearingI do not believe it is appropriate or professional to engage in coitus with one's employerArousal was not a mental disorderJace Knight great name is our anti hero a rich bad boy trying to go straight and doing that the best way he knew how You can tell that Jace has never met anyone like Charlie and he is captivated by her from their first meeting He was also very protective of her and I loved him for that even though he did trick her a couple times I could not fault anything with their relationship the pacing worked well with the story and Jace seemed to honestly care about Charlie The villains in the story are who we usually think of as good guys intelligence agents and international law enforcement Working in this field I cringed at the actions these people were taking I can only hope people in my agency would never conduct themselves in this fashionOverall The Australian was a breath of fresh air I recommend it to fans of contemporary romance who are in a reading slump or are looking for something different than the standard often annoying new adult heroines pervading the genre at the momentSee full review at
