Borrowing Alex by Cindy Procter-King

Hey y’all. I know, I know. I haven’t been around lately.  We decided to do a bathroom remodel in our house this summer and you know how it goes…what can go wrong will go wrong.  A project that we hoped would only take a week to 2 weeks max took over a month.  Ugh.  Anyway…


I received Borrowing Alex by Cindy Procter-King from Netgalley and Blue Orchard Books.  I loved Ms. Procter-King’s Love and other Calamities series, so I was excited to see this book was going to be revamped and re-released. I didn’t have the opportunity to read the book when it was first released, so it was a new read for me. I’ve been stalking her website like a fiend waiting to see if any announcements would be made about Borrowing Alex’s release. You can imagine my excitement when I saw it was available on Netgalley!

So…Borrowing Alex…  I liked it, but I felt like something was missing.  Alex was a good character, believable and realistic.  Nikki, on the other hand, not so much. When she wasn’t being obsessive, immature, and naive, I enjoyed her. I just couldn’t combine the brainy vet assistant with the airhead bride-to-be.  I understand heartache and all, but my gosh!! Her entire plan just doesn’t fit with the girl who secretly got a degree in biology.Overall, Borrowing Alex was a decent read. It was silly and had it’s charming moments. I give it 3 1/4 stars and would recommend it to friends, with a warning about the ditziness.


Thanks Netgalley and Blue Orchard Books!!
