Nikki St. James knows kidnapping Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is probably a little extreme, but her fiance barely seems to notice her existence any more, and she needs Alex to help her get his attention. Besides, she's probably doing the college professor a favor - he's so uptight a little R & R at a lakeside cabin is just what he needs. Not that she cares what he needs, or has noticed how handsome he is....
Alex needs a break from his quest to achieve tenure at warp speed - but being kidnapped is not his idea of a good time; especially not by his college buddy's crazy fiancee! He's not one to judge, but if what he's heard is true that she's perfectly happy with an "open relationship" why bother to get married at all?
Alex quickly realizes he's been mislead about Nikki. Worse yet, he's beginning to fall for her. Can he make her see the truth about her impending marriage without ruining his chances for a happy ending?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I'm sure others would enjoy it. Those who enjoy books with absolutely no basis in reality.
Has Borrowing Alex turned you off from other books in this genre?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I could not decide if the narrator actually brought more to the story or detracted from it.
What character would you cut from Borrowing Alex?
The female lead character.
Any additional comments?
I typically enjoy light hearted romances. This took the stupid, naive female lead character to a new level. The nicest thing I can say is - bad, very bad.

Boring and Annoying
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This could have been a better story if the heroine wasn't so obnoxious and naive. The male lead came off as weak and a push over and saw the female lead's obnoxious behavior as cute...it was not cute.
Would you ever listen to anything by Cindy Procter-King again?
How could the performance have been better?
I like a narrator who can make a man sound and act like a man - both the man and the woman in this book came off as feminine and a bit on the numb side.
You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I kept listening thinking it might at least have a good ending...I was dissapointed.
Any additional comments?
I prefer authors like Susan E. Phillips, Rachel Gibson, Lori Foster, and Susan Andersen - all authors who portray strong women and strong men. The absolute best narrator I have ever had the pleasure to listen to was Anna Fields, who sadly passed away...but she was AMAZING.
