After his father died in a robbery, Adam Verlain used his love of books to hide from the world, something his job as a rare book cataloguer for a small university in London was perfect for. But when that university acquired a newly discovered 1865 edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and wanted him to fly to Los Angeles and pick it up, Adam refused. He hates even the thought of leaving his careful, cloistered world and only agreed to go when pressured...and told the book will be brought to him at the airport so he could return home on the very next flight.
However, when he finally met the amazingly beautiful Casey Blanchard, the movie star who inherited the book, she refused to let him have it unless he accompanied her to a premier of her latest film for reasons that seemed...well...quite odd.
Adam was forced to go along because if he did not get the book, he'd lose a job he loved. But that brought his careful, cloistered world crashing into a chaotic mix of a too-cool henna artist, her demon toddler, her fan-boy husband, a protective mother, a drill-sergeant stylist, very questionable edibles, two mistaken identities, hysterical fans, Hollywood royalty, their courtiers and minions, maniacal LA drivers, an outlandish party, a drowning pool in the middle of Beverly Hills, a love-struck black panther on a homemade veldt, 50 cans of salmon, a bubble bath...and the terrifying realization he’s fallen in love with a woman every man in the world desires, but whom he knows he cannot trust...and could never love him back.
Or could she?
