I’m Matt Hadder.
I’ve been called ruthless, savage—even brutal—by the men and women who work for me. And I’ve earned my reputation.
Wonderland Inc., a party planning organization for every major player in the world, is Oz, and I’m its Wizard. I can make anything—drugs, prostitutes, deals—appear for a night and disappear just as quickly.
This doesn’t make me good or bad—it makes me essential.

This book actually turned out to have a dark twist and I really enjoyed it. The overall story was pretty sweet and light though. Both characters were likable and together they were enjoyable to read about. I liked the chemistry that was between them and it kept the book interesting for me. Definitely one I would recommend.

#ManMonroeTwistedFairytales are my new favorite thing.

So I love #MaxMonroeRomComs. I also really love the their stuff that makes me think (as well as laugh) - Sex Says - and I now find that they can write anything apparently because their dark minds might just be my favorite yet with Alex in Wonderland. This had some laughs, definately dark undertones and was seriously sexy. The build up to the actual event was some of the best non-sex sexytimes I've read in a l

15 years ago Matt inherited a huge empire from his dad.
Some might say it's a bit mafia-ish. Some might say it's downright criminal.
But Matt says it's all just on this side of legal. Especially with all the people they're paying and blackmailing to look the other way.
Officially, Wonderland, Inc. is a party planning business. But unofficially it's so much more.

What intrigued me in this book, is that it's promoted as Dark Romantic Comedy. How is it even possible? As it turned out, it is.

Delicious hero, funny heroine and different storyline. And how hot it was! Matt's dirty mouth is something else. Really sizzling and smoking hot. The humor was great. The dark moments give me chills. But it wasn't too dark. Really good balance between the two. You must know that The Max and Monroe have a very specific sense of humor. You just enjoy it or not so much.

I'm COMPLETELY OBSESSED with this book...with these characters...with EVERYTHING that Max Monroe has to offer! ALEX IN WONDERLAND was a PHENOMENAL and SEXY twist to a fairytale we all know and love. This dynamic duo has taken us in a VERY different direction to what we are used to with them, and all I have to say is...I NEED MORE! Even though this is a different style of writing for Max Monroe, they still grace us with unforgettable characters, witty and comedic banter, and epic storylines. Now, ...more

This book was so much fun! I think I finished it in one sitting. Loved the writing, the wit, the humor and all the references to one of my favorite fairy tales, Alice in Wonderland. Love how quirky Alex was and Matt's possessiveness made for some sizzling, off the chart chemistry between the two of them! Then, of course, there is that age-gap (15 years!!!) that I love so much. Oh and did I already say Matt was HAWT?? ;)

Another odd review for me, and it probably won't be one of my better received ones. I'll be posting and hiding, lol!

Everyone knows I'm a fan of the dark side, I love snarky humor...I loved Max Monroe's Bad Boy Billionaires books, but... I didnt connect as well with this one. Odd plot points and holes and characters that I struggled to connect with. Alex ... as Alice, was almost to my TSTL limit and I kinda wanted to banish her to Wonderland, never to be seen again, if you know what I mean. Matt

I'm certifiably crazy now. Nuts, deranged, wacko, insane....because this book just went berserk on my thoughts and emotions!

Alex in Wonderland...there are literally not enough words I could use to describe how utterly fantastic this book is! The literary wonder that is Max Monroe has given us yet another brand-new taste of what transpires in their minds. If you've read their previous books, I can tell you right now that you will be blown away with this book, as well. It is NOTHING like what you'

I think you have to be in the right mood to read this book... that is, don't expect too much from it. You need to be in the mood for some brainless fun otherwise you'll definitely nit-pick the heck out of the holes in the story. (And boy, there are many!)

I found myself finishing it rather quickly because it's a pretty fast paced book. The plot is not deep. You don't get too far into the thoughts or backgrounds or emotions of the MC's either. It's all very shallow and light... zero angst. Sweet V

Well, this was quite different than any other Max Monroe book, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Matt Hadder owns Wonderland, Inc., officially a party planning business. Under the surface though, it's so much more. The business is Matt's whole world, until he meets Alex. The fate of her life is in his hands when he fears she may have over heard something she shouldn't have. Now it's a waiting game since he can't really come out and ask.

Matt has done some very questionable things in his life. Busin

Alex in Wonderland by Max Monroe
4 stars!!!

“Hell, maybe we’re all mad here.”

Alex in Wonderland is Max Monroe’s up to date interpretation of our dear Alice, who found the ultimate fairy tale after following her rabbit. I chased my own rabbit from the first to last page of this read as Max Monroe kept me captivated from first to last page. Gone are the Mad Hatters and tea parties, in are a mafia type corporation, orgies and lots of drugs. Some might argue that Alice could have been high, but ou

A dark retelling of Alice In Wonderland - sure, why not!

Alex In Wonderland is a step away from the fun, flirty and sexy tales we have had from the dynamic duo that is Max Monroe to date, but change is a good thing!

Alex Little really does fall down the rabbit hole when she meets Matt Hadder - and she took me all the way with her!

Matt is all kinds of adorable - for a criminal/gangter/mob guy (not really quite sure how to describe Wonderland Inc). Yet he is swee

Oh my goodness there's seriously not enough stars in the world for this intensively captivating tale. Growing up Alice in Wonderland was hands down one of my all-time favorite fairytales so when I discovered that Alex in Wonderland was a modern and darker twist of this classic tale I jumped at the opportunity to read it.

ARC kindly received from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

I'm honestly not really sure about how I feel about this book. I haven't finished the Billionaire Bad Boys series yet, but I have read their other books and really enjoyed them. This one I was intrigued with, but not as much as the others. I don't think I particularly like Matt.

I liked it, but I wasn't keen on it. Not really 100% sure what to say.

When Max Monroe announced this book is a dark romance and would be different from all of their previous books, they weren't kidding. I went into this book not sure if I would like it.

The male protagonist, Matt Hadder is not an upstanding model of the community, but he is necessary to many people with questionable morals. He's a problem solver. He gets things done. He has no qualms about what he does or how he does it. Despite this, you'll have a hard time not falling for him anyway.

Max Monroe’s carefully construction Wonderland, Inc. is definitely not Alice’s, but this darker and decadent version of the fairy tale world has Alex Little falling down a rabbit's hole and involved with a Mad Hatter of a more dangerous and deadly variety. It’s an environment where anything goes…where there’s no such thing as only good or only bad when it comes to the members of this organization…where its surface depicts one idea and then hidden beneath the veil is something entirely different. ...more

Wonderland was the title and you fall into it, accept it. I enjoyed the plot, the dominance but I still find it lacking maybe it was the romance part that didn't move me that much. Still, it was a good read, she wasn't greedy just play for it and bargain. As for the male character, he wasn't that much interesting to me, he showed testoste

I absolutely adore this twisted Fairy-tale retelling from Max Monroe. This romance had all the signature signs of one of their stories, unique humor and steamy chemistry, but it also took on a darker element in the form of Matt Hadder and Wonderland Inc, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This hero and his business are whre the darker aspect of this story are integrated. He is dangerous and mysterious, fulfilling the needs of the most elite. Hi

Wealth. Extravagance.
Drugs. Alcohol. Pleasure.
Dirty deeds. Owed favors. Greed.

Alex in Wonderland is a unique take on the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. While I'm used to laugh out loud reads from this duo, I have to say this dark read was a welcome change!

Matt Hadder had an upbringing few ever experience. After the death of his parents, John Hadder raised him. He was the owner of Wonderland. An event planning company on the ou

Mauvaise pioche que ce roman, sans grand intérêt pour moi, qui surfe de façon assez maladroite sur l’image du milliardaire dominateur. Le résumé semblait original et bien fait. Au final, c’est un roman assez insipide que j’ai mis beaucoup de temps à terminer.

L’idée était bonne. Wonderland est une société que dirige le héros, Matt. Il s’agit en réalité d’une compagnie chargée de réaliser tous les désirs de riches clients, légaux ou non. Cela peut être trouver des femmes pour une soirée à effacer
