Avoiding Amy Jackson (The Infamous Series #2)
Meet Amy Jackson. An outspoken, raunchy, in-your-face, loudly inappropriate ER Nurse who makes a career out of indulging.
One-night stands have always been her thing.
Commitment and relationships are two words that are not in her vocabulary.
Amy doesn't have dreams of soul mates and white picket fences. She adamantly refuses to even consider the idea of getting married and starting a family. She’s also obstinate in allowing a certain physician to get on her good side…
James Williams. A cocky, smug, too-damn-good-looking orthopedic surgeon who has his sights set on the very feisty Amy Jackson. He is more than intrigued and ready to do whatever it takes…
“I want this woman. I’m the type of guy who will fight for what he wants until he gets it. I will take my time with Amy. I won’t rush her. I will continue to slowly slide myself into her life until she realizes that I belong there. And then…I won’t let her go.”
This is Book Two in The Infamous Series
Dear Mrs. Alcorn,
Can we be best friends??
The Book Trollop
This is the second book in the Infamous Series by N.A. Alcorn and, so far, it's my favorite.
Avoiding Amy was AHHHH-MAY-ZING!! I was laughing until I was crying, getting irritated with Amy, LOVING James, and I even got a little teary eyed with certain parts... It was all around amazing and the damn thing is covered in highlights from the very beginning to the very end.
While reading, I kept saying "OMG this is my favorite line....ever" then I would read some more and I would say "OMG NO this is the best line EVER.." It continued on until I realized there were a lot of favorite moments, insults, internal monologues that had me laughing until I wanted to puke.
Amy is a very stubborn, vulgar, don't take any shit from anyone, type person but she hides a lot of her deeper feelings behind her sarcastic, vulgar, slutty mask. But in this book we see her change from her slutty ways, to someone who wants to find a deeper connection.
Enter James, he is everything she wants in a man (meaning he is male with a soup can cock). But when he rejects her more than obvious need to fuck his brains out the first night, she turns that lust into angered-filled HATE. This of course, is her mechanism for deflecting her true feelings. She doesn't want to admit, she admires him for turning her twat down when she was less than coherent but it is better to push him away than admit anything, hence the title...
Of course she never counted on James being the master, skilled on patience and time, to get what he wants.
Their eventual friendship is endearing and hilarious, I REALLY LOVED that N.A made them friends first, before anything. But even with their friendship, Amy is still running from him and it is up to James to catch her but even he eventually gets tired of the chase.
I loved that there was more Ellen and Lizzie in this book and it was fun to see the continuing of Dr. Thrust ME and Ellen's relationship. This book is definitely not a standalone, you must read The Infamous Ellen James first, before embarking on the craziness that is Amy...
There really wasn't anything that I did not like in this book, it had every emotion known to man and it made me FEEL it. That is MY definition of a great book, making me FEEL the emotions, even when I want to cunt punt and twat throttle every character in the book, at least aggravation is a feeling that I am sure N.A wanted to elicit.
Plus, the big bonus, is the one handed reading that ensued...
Thanks N.A., my vagina was quite pleased ;)
I give this book a 5/5 and if you have not read this or The Infamous Ellen James then I would get on that, like RIGHT NOW!!!
Below are some teasers and an excerpt to give you a glimpse inside the amazing Avoiding Amy
“So is it true what I’ve heard about marines?” I ask nonchalantly.
He cocks his eyebrow inquisitively. “What exactly have you heard about marines?”
“Once a marine, always a marine. I hear you guys even yell out, ‘Oorah!’ during sex.” I try like hell to keep my face devoid of any emotion, especially amusement.
James’s fist slams down onto the table as he lets out a deep laugh. Our coffee cups vibrate from the motion and tiny droplets slide down the side of my cup onto the small, red table. “Uh. No,” he answers through his laughter.
“Never? C’mon. You mean to tell me you’ve never yelled that out during sex? Even when you come?” I wipe the spilled coffee off the table with a beige napkin that proudly displays the shop’s logo.
James’s tickled expression makes me grin.
“God, you’re outrageous, but to answer your question, no. Never. I’m saving it for when I meet the woman of my dreams.” His face beams with hilarity. James unleashes his most impressive megawatt smile and I instantly feel needy for his attention.
A self-deprecating laugh escapes my throat as I try to brush off the unnerving feeling that is occurring inside of me. “You’re good. Really good. I bet you have women throwing themselves at you all the time.” My face immediately flushes red when a particular embarrassing memory comes to mind.
“I don’t turn on the charm for just anyone, Amy,” he states with a determined stare, his eyes piercing into mine.
“That doesn’t seem like a response someone would give to their friend.” He may need sunglasses for the glare I’m giving him.
“Sometimes, with you, I just can’t help myself, but I promise I’ll try to be better.” He holds his hand to his chest, asking for forgiveness.
“I guess I’ll let that one slide, but if it happens again, I can’t make any promises what my reaction will be,” I warn before I finish the rest of my coffee.
