It's All Greek to Me

Iakovoos knew his sister hired her f

Thank god, Katie followed her formula of writing; actually, I don't think she took one step off the path of the formula she uses. If you are a fan of Katie MacAlister as I had been, then I think you will know what I mean.
The formula? A heroine who is strong, smart and incredibly understanding yet runs off at the mouth inappropriately has sex somewhat too soon, declares her love a bit too soon and is totally irreverent to the ones she loves. A book filled wi ...more
Quick & Dirty: Steamy goodness and hilarious fun.
Opening Sentence: The man in front of her was crazy.
Fate does indeed smile upon those who are willing to be kind to their fellow man. When Harry agrees to fill in as manager of a teen-pop band headed for a gig in Greece as a favor for a sick friend, the planets align and serve up her destiny on a rather large silver platter. A gorgeous, loveable, and rather hot silver platter.
Iakovos is a gorgeous ...more
Should have been 1 Star. But the names of the characters are so funny so I gave it another 0.5. :D
The first chapter is so confusing I don't get anything at all. And the names made it worse.
Who would name her female character as "Harry" anyway? (Yeah, MacAlister would.) To think that her real name is Eglantine? (Another weird name)
The strong-willed, girl-from-amazon and most-sought-after-bachelor-in-the-entire-universe is an over used plot. Nothing new. Nothing extraordinary. Pretty predicta ...more
Iakovos Papaioannou is a real-estate billionaire and he owns the island that the band are performing on, and it's his sisters birthday that they are playing at.
Harry is amusing, she has an awesome habit of answering her internal monologue's out loud; she can't pronounce Papaioannou (who could?) but she really care either, which leads to being escorted out of his building because she claims that she's Iakovos' girlfri ...more
The basic premise is that a wealthy Greek businessman, Iakovos, has hired the American teen pop band his younger sister loves for her 18th birthday party. He flew them out, all expenses paid. Their manager had a bad case of appendicitis ...more
I have to admit, this book was by far one of the worst I've read by her. And while I'm usually one to read a book and easily be able to at least say, "it was okay", I was very close to rating this book a one star. The plot was nonexistent, the writing was repetitive, and the romance was overly unrealistic. The entire premise of the two main characters, Harry and Iakovos, meeting was ...more

I've always enjoyed Katie's books when I'm in the mood for something funny with little drama, and this book fit the bill. The dialogue, name mispronounciations, and situations Harry sometimes found herself in were hilarious. I loved both the main characters. Iakovos was endearingly sweet and caring and I loved how he appreciated Harry's fiery nature. Harry was independent, quirky, loyal, so much fun to read. The secondary characters were harder to love, Theo and Patricia especially. I didn't re ...more

I've never laughed while reading as much as I did through this book.
Harry is spontaneous, crazy and says instantly and exactly what crosses her mind.
It would have been perfect if the hero was a little more a "macho" as the title may make you think but otherwise it was a very very enjoyable read.
As for "Papamiaowmiaow" It was really the final touch!!!
This book had a lot of laugh out loud moments for me. I couldn't put the book down. I read the whole thing in a day. I just had to see what was going to happen.
Harry’s is love, but she can’t pronounce his name. You can’t really blame her; Iakovos Okeanos Papaioannou isn't the easiest Greek name to learn to pronounce correctly.
MacAlister has created another female lead that doesn't fit the romance novel mold. Eglantine “Harry” Knight monologues in her head, rather than tossing out her thoughts. Who hasn't done that? She has a wicked right cross and a naughty sense of humor. Ia ...more
Huh, Katie has usually done such an awesome job of writing books that demand I finish them right away even if I have to stay up all night. Still one of my favorite authors, but this book is ...more

“You bet your incredibly attractive and probably hard enough to bounce a quarter off ass I am!” she snapped back.
An indescribable look flitted across his face. “You are the most irreverent woman I’ve ever met.”
“And you’re the handsomest man I’ve ever seen in my life, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to lick you!” she yelled.”
