Andie M Long - The Alphabet Game A-E

I noticed all the chat about The Alphabet Game on FB so I downloaded it to see what all the hype was about and I am so glad I did.  For Andie M Long’s first book this was a funny, sexy read. I felt compelled to continue reading until the small hours of the morning.
Yes this book is funny and sexy and boy is it sexy but there is also a very good storyline which is compelling and keeps you wanting more, although it has a cliff hanger it didn’t make me feel less for the book, it made me want to get the next one ASAP. This book intrigued me; Stella’s story intrigued me so much that I can’t wait for part 2

Gabe and Stella’s story is so interesting that you want to keep reading, not skimming the contents of the book or skipping to the end to see if there is a HEA but actually read page for page to get right into the storyline and to let them get under your skin. There are lots of moments in this story where all I could do was to laugh so much I had tears running down my cheeks and the detail in which Andie has gone into is brilliant.

The intensity that Stella has with Gabe not only sexually but in the commitment of Stella’s goal is compelling but throughout this book there are twists and turns and you start to feel for Stella in as much as who can she really trust, who is on her side, there are so many secrets around that even she starts to wonder.  I don’t want to say too much to spoil this for others

I was not sure in the beginning of how many stars I would rate this book; however, because of the excellent writing and storyline, I was compelled to give this a 5.  For New Author Andie M Long, this is a brilliant first book and a must read in my eyes.

Andie is a British author, and writes in the British text and pronunciation and it is refreshing to read.

Andie M. Long is a bonkers mother of one, who spends most of her time when not working as a Research Administrator/Medical Secretary, reading; writing; on Facebook; drinking coffee; baking cakes; and letting her son wind her around his eleven year old finger. She has a long suffering partner.

Andie wrote two full length novels before Gabe and Stella entered her mind and so in her usual bonkers fashion decided to self-publish the first novella, having not even written the rest of the series. Something she has smacked herself in the face for since; that and saying she’d release one a month.

She has several published short stories and poems, including an upcoming release for Cracked Eye and as a freelance interviewer has interviewed authors such as Carrie Jones, Freya North, Jane Green, Jill Mansell, Sheila O’Flanagan and Matt Haig. Andie has a regular blog at, ‘The Emergence of the Invisible Writer.’
