Review: Cancelled by Elizabeth Ann West

What do you think of a Male POV Chick Lit book?  I was not so sure before I started.  On a normal basis I am not fond of books from a male POV unless mixed with a main female POV.

Johnathan Michaels has been in love with Alex since college.  When Alex was single Johnathan was dating someone and vice versa.  Johnathon wakes one morning with a girl he barely remembers from the night before in his bed, Kellie.  He drops Kellie at home and tells her have a nice life more or less even though she wants to "hang out" again.  Just a one night stand for Johnathan.

Johnathan goes to visit his stepmother in Paris for the holidays.  He gets called back to help with an emergency at his and Alex's and their friend Eric's company.  Johnathan and Alex discover they've both had feelings for the other for years and never discovered.  After they start a relationship Kellie pops back up to inform Johnathan he's going to be a father.

In the background Johnathan's bio mom stole from his sisters trust fund by forging his name.  He calls his stepmother, Anna, and tells her about it.  Anna asks him to let her handle the situation and not to call the authorities.  She's hiding something but what?

What will happen with Alex and Kelly? 

How Distracted Did I Get?

I loved this book. To be honest, in the beginning, as Kellie popped back up preggers I wasn't sure I wanted to go on.  I pressed through and I was unable to put the book down!  Johnathan is a sweet, sexy and smart man but he can be a typical man.  Alex and Kellie are extremely different in personalities.  If you are like me in getting attached to characters you will be pulled all different directions.

As for the male POV I loved it!  Rare but I did get to see his emotions throughout the book was fun.  Every once in a while you will see a few other character's POV's also.

This is a definite must read!

I gave Cancelled 4 Baskets! 

It's more like 4 1/2 but I have no graphic for 4 1/2

  2. Hey Tobi, I'd love to see a cover shot of the book up top w/the description somewhere along with your reviews. I'm older and easily distracted, so it makes it easier for me. You might have a reason for not doing it, but I just thought I'd throw it out there as a suggestion. What do you think? ;)

    1. Thanks! I'll try to grab one from Amazon! :D

    2. I like to grab from Goodreads because the description is always right there. :) This looks great!

  3. I quite like the idea of a surprise pack :) I also like the idea of male POV in books so Cancelled is going on my to be read pile.
