The Corset Diaries


Formats & editions


“Reality TV has never been more entertaining than here as the wickedly funny MacAlister has her heroine record her hilarious experiences with a quirky cast of characters and her passionate encounters with Max in a laughter-laced diary that is a saucy, sexy delight.”—Booklist

Tessa and Max are funny, sexy and slightly poignant—a true match.”—RT Book Reviews   “An enjoyable contemporary romance...Fans will enjoy this entertaining anachronistic look at displacement as the modern crowd struggles with life just over a century ago.”—The Best Reviews”
