Author ALAN FOX writes love stories, filled with a sense of awe and wonder, and set against a brutal world. “THE GIRL MADE OF COOL” is his vibrant new novel and the centerpiece of this collection. Here, Fox tells the story of a young man and woman who are falling in love with each other, but the young woman doesn’t know it. She believes that she’s falling in love with the man’s far more handsome, more perfect friend. … As the story unfolds and deepens, we see how these two highly talented young men must suffer, struggle, and wage battle to woo this young woman. This, as all the while, she grows into an ever greater beauty, a more charismatic personality, and an all-the-more alluring woman. … This, as all the while, this young lady grows to become an elegant woman made of shining love and elusive cool. — Also featured here in this collection, you will find: The Novel “HELL HAS BLUE SKIES” — A love story about intense relationships in an office, whose unusual line of business is to train people to become ‘world-class experts.’ And the short story “THE LOVELY LADY AT THE LOVE MUSEUM” — A colorful tale of romance and high-level maneuvering in the big city.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to read a movie script?  Well, in this book, the way the author set up the storytelling was like reading a script.  Each scene had a set up so you knew what to expect in your mind when trying to picture it.  That alone, I thought was pretty cool.  The characters didn’t seem to spark my interest though.  It could have been because I was so focused with setting up each scene in my mind, that I just didn’t give the characters a chance to click.  The way it was written, just didn’t seem to flow for me.  I love the idea of the book and the new spin on writing style for it though.  A great book with a triangle that is slightly different than the normal.  

  A Good Book and Read! Perfect For Rainy Days

    I read and reviewed this book also. I had a hard time with some portions of the book. I did like Ridley though but the other two.Not so much.
