From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Max Monroe comes a new, sexy, and exciting twist on fairytales.
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.
Wonderland Inc. was my life, until a beautiful contradiction of innocence and impurity, obedience and rebelliousness named Alex Little stepped in and turned both of our worlds upside down.
Welcome to Wonderland, Alex.
A place where everything appears normal.
But we’re all mad.

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.
The setting for Alex in Wonderland is not for children, not even the one that serves as the cover for a lot of the party hosts and guests’ nefarious acts. Nevertheless, it is the one that Alex finds herself in when her job in a rabbit costume puts her in the path of Matt Hadder – the man at the helm of Wonderland, Inc. A man whose calm and controlled exterior conceals his ruthlessness and savagery. Matt rules with an iron fist and isn’t afraid to use fear, bribery, and blackmail to protect his clients, his employees, and even himself.
Alex Little is a curious person by nature, so when she’s invited into Matt’s world and is introduced to its sexy and sinister ways, she has to decide if she can be part of an environment that blurs the lines of right/wrong, good/bad, and legal/illegal, and interestingly enough, this innocent and moral beauty understands why an organization like Wonderland exists and excels because it’s human nature to push boundaries, to live life on one’s own terms, and to revel in a level of debauchery than can only exist if there are willing participants, and what Alex realizes is that this alternate universe that Matt has built and molded can only thrive with the backing of powerful and wealthy people, proving without a doubt, that people are only a little mad!
The path of Alex and Matt’s relationship doesn’t follow a straight line, which makes sense because, at first, they live in completely different worlds, but when a set of circumstances brings them together, what starts out as a potential liability becomes a connection that neither Alex nor Matt are willing to give up, despite her fear and his need to not show weakness as the head of a company that is ripe with deceit and has people looking to get ahead by any means necessary.
Alex in Wonderland is strikingly different than what Max Monroe readers have come to expect from the sassy and hilarious writing duo, but the new world they introduce us to in their first twisted fairytale is just as enticing and dynamic as any of their other stories; in fact, there’s a depth to Alex and Matt’s story with its explanation of human nature and the gray area concerning the deeds of men that isn’t necessarily a component of their other series because the settings and feel of the books are completely different than the mysteriously dark world that Max Monroe creates in this latest release.
And, with the titles of Max Monroe’s other twisted fairytales, I can’t wait to see what alternate universes they send readers to and how amazing it will be to explore these warped, adult versions of children’s classics.
