In the Pursuit of Charity
He expected her to be seduced by his charms.
He expected her to fall for him.
Expectations are a funny thing …
When his parents named him Herbert Lincoln James, they already had expectations that Linc would attend an ivy league university and go into politics. Linc didn't. As captain of his swim team, he was expected to win the big relay to c ...more
I absolutely loved Linc and Alexis story. Both characters felt so read with real life topics that made this story into a well written relatable story for many. I was really rooting for Linc and Alexis.
This is a lovely romantic story. This is a truly lovely read. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
Linc is the captain of the swim team. There are rules to be followed. Social standards, social acceptances. What happens when those social rules are not followed?
Alexia hears all the jokes about her weight. Puts on a brave face. Smiles and carries on. Why is he talking to her? Is this another joke at her expense?
Whatever their feelings for each other, will the social cliques. The boundaries set ...more

With this being a new authors book there were some confusion between inner dialogue and conversations. I wasn't a huge fan of the book being written in the third person but then had italic sentences in first person for Linc, it was confusing at times.
Intrigued by the Blurb I choose to read an ARC of In the Pursuit of Charity by the new to me author Alexandria Sure. The book is a rather short one that I read in one session. Her writing style and character development is very different from what I usually read so it took me a little longer to get into the story and its characters. The plot flows at a slower but very steady pace which accentuates the characters very well I felt after I allowed myself to "get into" it.
And let me also inform you ...more
I really enjoyed In the Pursuit of Charity by Alexandria Sure. It was sweet romance story that was a little different from your average New Adult story. Swim team captain Lincoln has fallen for Alexis. Alexis likes Linc but can't why he would be interested in her, someone who she is sure looks different from his usual type.
The storyline told from Linc point of view was thought-provoking for sure, and I think the aut ...more
Arc provided by author for honest review. I was very skeptical to read this book. It just didn't sound like something I normally read or would enjoy. I am very happy to say I was dead wrong. I devoured this book. From the start to the finish! And now that I'm finished I want more and I need more. Ah sometimes hate cliffhangers lol. ...more

First off I want to say Bravo to this author..what a fantastic read! I don't even know where to begin with this review. I'll be honest I've read most of the reviews already posted and thought I knew which route to take with this but now I think I'm just going to write what comes to mind.
I normally don't like books that are only from the male character's POV, but in this case I'm thinking it was a brilliant move. ...more
Linc is the popular jock who is confident and almost a little cocky. He gets set up on a blind date by one of his friends and is bored out of his mind, that is until he starts listening to the c ...more
The one word that jumps out at me when thinking about this book is HONEST!!! The characters are relatable, loveable, and real. They are people that I can honestly see in the local coffee shop or anywhere else that I hang out in on a regular basis. I fell in love with both Linc & Alexis!! To me, they represent 2 sides of my self that I haven't se ...more
Ummm... I don't like cliffhangers! And I didn't know this was a prequel when I chose it! *sob*
However - it's a five star read for me. I know, crazy, right? But it's a FABULOUS story - the cadence of the writing style took me a little bit to get into, but the story pulled me right in. I felt connected to Linc right away, and loved the pacing of his getting to know Alexis. Even the missteps... But I want MORE NOW! *laug ...more
Includes a CLIFFHANGER!!! I personally like to know ahead of time if there is one so I am not left upset at the end. Some of what I say in my review might be construed as a spoiler but I dont think so but just to put that warning out there so I dont upset anyone.
I really enjoyed the book. Its not very often we get to read books about plus-sized women. There is a vast difference between a romance novel that features a curvy or bbw and this book. You'll ...more

In the Pursuit of Charity by Alexandria Sure is a refreshing change; it’s a romance story where the athlete doesn’t date a Barbie. It’s a very well written story that completely captivated me from the start, it’s definitely original. Alexis possessed strength that people dream of and I found her to be incredibly inspirational. This was definitely an eye-opening story for me.
Linc James is a student at Michigan State who has a life changing ...more

In The Pursuit of Charity is a beautiful, refreshing and different romance story that we all can relate to. In a world obsessed with perfection. Ms Sure writes on a insecurity that most woman deal with weight. In The Pursuit of Charity is the first book that I have read from this author. Alexandria Sure writing style is superb, warm and engaging.
