Invisible by Lindsay Woodward
ABOUT THE BOOK
Alice Bloom has shut herself away from the world for years. But all that changes when three men come into her life. Firstly there’s the rather disgusting Karl, who has the key to her problems but turns her stomach. Then there’s smooth and sexy Ethan, whom Alice falls head over heels for, but she just can’t seem to get time alone with him. And finally there’s her lovely, supportive friend Dan, if only they could ever actually get to meet. Because the biggest problem of all is: Alice is invisible.
The complications become more and more hilarious as Alice tries to steer her way through her conflicting emotions and find her way to happiness. Will she succeed or will life always get the better of her?
Alice is heiress to a successful security company and has an unusual affliction. She’s invisible. Her depression from losing her parents five years ago and prevented her from facing her fears which I believe instigates the whole invisible thing. However, when Alice decides to step foot outside her comfort zone and tackle work and her personal life, she can only be seen by a strange and unlikely group of characters. As her confidence grows, her body starts to appear again; however, the less than stellar decisions she makes just may result in losing the man of her dreams and losing herself again.
Alice and Dan are a best friends to lovers couple. They get each other. They play online chess together. They love the same movies. But Alice is excited about being seen again and it goes to her head resulting in reckless and bad choices. My favorite character is Dan who is a charismatic and kind individual who has always had Alice’s best interests at heart, and he has been desperately and hopelessly in love with a woman he had never met in person until recently. In addition to the love story, there is a interesting mystery thrown in about how Dan’s sales competition is closing his deals. Will Alice be able to see past her insecurities and become the confident and brave woman Dan thinks she is? Or will her selfish treatment of others come back to bite her? You will find yourself rooting for Dan and wanting to bash Alice over the head for being so dim.
Overall, this is an intriguing and imaginative look at confronting your fears and standing up for what you love.
Thank you to Ms. Woodward for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
