Binding Arbitration Book Review




This book used a lot of big words. I don't mean to make it sound trite as it was one of the very things that drew me to it. I adore vocabulary and all too often I find things are "dumbed" down so it was refreshing to read something that was verbose in the very way I like it. However, there seemed to be a fair amount of editing issues as well as the fact I didn't get the point of having an ump occasionally being a voice in Aidan's head. I think the story was good enough on its own and would possibly have been better without.

I also had issues with how the relationship went back and forth from hot to cold and back again so easily. I suppose though that it is possible but it just seemed to be to extremes.

I liked this book but I didn't love it. The story was intriguing and kept me interested but there seemed to be some holes in the plot that distracted me from enjoying it more.


Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing.

Elizabeth grew up in Illinois and has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she’s not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who’ve spelled everyone into believing they’re really dogs.

Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there’s no town like Chi-Town.
