Over the Moon

I am just over the moon with the review of my first book!


Christine: Courtship by Aleson Alexander (transgender romance)
Aleson Alexander is a fresh new voice on the romance and erotica scene, an author with a passion for characters and a flair for relationships who I am excited to read more of!


Christine: Courtship is just an altogether lovely story, the very definition of a slow-burn, friends-to-lovers romance. It is, as the title suggests, a prolonged courtship that begins with weeks of simple conversations, occasionally over dinner (Dutch, not a date), but mostly over the phone. If that sounds too tame or too boring for you, trust me it is not. That dialogue is funny and witty and heartfelt and engaging, and it reveals so much about Christine and Alex.


As their story progresses, we do get a few actual dates, with the pivotal moment coming once she finally accepts an invitation back to Alex’s place for a movie and some wine. We already know Christine has secrets, and we already can sense she has been hurt before, but the depth of her fear and loneliness . . . well, it is as shocking as it is heartbreaking.


I cannot remember the last time I felt for a character like I did for Christine, but the way in which Alex coaxes her back from a breakdown, and the ways in which they begin to reconnect after bearing all, is beautiful. Since the fact of a sequel, Christine: Love, already promises that breakdown is not an end, I will allow myself to say this – the glee, the joy, the happiness, and the love of the final scenes still have me smiling a day after.
