If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em…that is Alexa Harris’s’ motto. When challenges to join the all male team of lad mag, Banter, Alexa decides to the play the games the boys are already playing. She soon begins to question if she has gone against her own morals and if there will be a price to play.
When I started It’s a Man’s World I was unsure of what to expect. I believed this book to be a man vs. woman story. A story about a woman trying to make it in a man’s world. There was so much more to this story. It’s a story of Alexa making her mark in a man’s world. Alexa quickly became the woman I could cheer for and hope to succeed. Alexa puts up with a lot of sexist gags and jokes by her male staff at Banter. I found myself wonder if my skin would be tough enough to handle the situation with the same toughness Alexa does. Fortunately, Alexa has great support in her friends, Leonie and Kate. They tell her how it is, but offer her a shoulder to lean on through her nine months time at the lad magazine.
There were parts of this book that had my total attention and I could not stop reading. There were also parts of the book that seemed to go very slow. But over-all It’s a Man’s World was very entertaining. It is not a typical chic-lit book.
