No superheroes nor anything supernatural (thus far, at least.) Expect merely ordinary people - you and me, as it were - caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Plots are character-driven, and the characters themselves are complex and often contradictory.
I aim to appeal to the reader who has an ample sense of humor and an appreciation for irony. You can expect adventure and romance, but graphic violence and sex are at a minimum - think PG or PG-13 at most - and suitable for mature youths as well as adults.

SUPERB, Definitely not like any romance i've ever read before, you'll never guess what will happen next, you'll laugh out loud -a lot- and you'll relate to at least one of the characters in this book, and last but not least, the author managed to write a convincing romantic plot without the "i love you" cliche . Can't remember the last time I laughed so hard reading a contemporary romance book, really enjoyable read, highly recommended and I'm so reading this again."

If I hadn't known differently, I'd have said Dai Alanye was a woman. He must have a deep understanding of women from the way he describes their clothes and their attitude to them. A had plenty of vicarious shopping trips while reading ''Not That I..'' and enjoyed every one.
And all the descriptions of delicious meals - they make the book both cosy and real. Not idealised, though - there's almost as much class-consciousness as in Jane Austen which might surprise non-American readers.
Believable characters and dialogue, humour (wait for the reference to The Mill on the Floss) and a satisfying, realistic ending make this a grown-up romance.
