Présentation de l'éditeur

"Loved the concept and laughed out loud at some of the situations he got into. More soon please. So funny." Pearl Tate

"Brilliant mix of heartache, romance, sex...I was hooked from the 1st page!....A truly refreshingly honest journey from a male viewpoint." LadyLush

"It was brill, one of those books you get all disappointed at cos you've finished it!" Vikki Richardson

"What a brilliant read which was both funny & sad in places. I love that it is written by a man - what a wonderful perspective that I hadn't considered." Suzie118

"...Nuts to being 'in touch with your feminine side', read this brilliant book and get back to being a guy. It's the first book I've ever read that truly reflects the screwed-up mess of emotions that is a man deceived finding his way back to love, via the many pitfalls and pratfalls that is modern internet 'dating'..." Thunderbutt


Book Description

It is said that the course of true love never runs smooth - even for us men. Yet it has never been easier to find love than in this modern digital era where the mighty computer has all but rendered Cupid redundant. Love is now to be found, quite literally, at your fingertips. Although love also seems to have changed with the times. This new love is deceitful and manipulative, cunning and untrustworthy. Love has gotten ugly. Thankfully, not all the answers to life’s mysteries are to be found in the computer and Cupid - battered and bruised as he may be - proves that he still has some game and a few tricks up his sleeve…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Greater than expected 11 août 2014
Par Andy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Greater Expectations tells the story of Z following his separation from his cheating wife, and his journey from being heartbroken to finding love again, with lots of dating disasters and sexual encounters along the way. This book is unusual as it is written from a male perspective and was thought provoking in how it is assumed all men want to be the player and are not looking for the perfect partner, I had never truly considered before how difficult it must be where men are expected show bravado at all times and hide their emotions.
This book is very well written with an eloquent style of writing with some real laugh out loud moments, you go through a journey of emotions along with the main character. My only criticism for me personally the book ended abruptly and I would have loved an epilogue ending or even better a follow up book. I would definitely recommend this book although it is an adult only book, I will be looking for more works from this author.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 you really do feel like you are getting the best of the male point ... 15 février 2015
Par Esperanza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Sometimes you need to hear it from the guy's point of view to really understand the male version of a breakup! In the fictional book Greater Expectations by the author Alexander McCabe, you really do feel like you are getting the best of the male point of view. This book opens your eyes to some of the problems and outright heart ache that men go through after a long term relationship and break up. I know it may be hard for some to follow along simply because us women are well, kind of spoiled, by always reading a woman's perspective. It does matter, especially during a break up episode.

McCabe at times throughout this book is brutally honest, especially when the main character states that men often times will let a relationship go, because they were too involved in their ego to allow themselves to apologize. Wow, I so needed to read that part! This is almost like a self help book, yet it is fiction and provides a woman with so many clues to solving life long puzzles with men that they may have loved over the years. I truly enjoyed this book and feel that McCabe did an awesome job on helping out the ladies with this book! Not to mention sharing a little insight for the guys too.

I rate this book 4 stars and recommend for all those dealing with an unwanted breakup, well, especially you gals that are needing the male insight!

This was a great read! Very funny and had some literal laugh out loud moments, along with deep thought provoking rants. It had some very adult and crude moments, so I would not recommend it for everyone, but I found it to be a very interesting take on dating and love from a man's perspective.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Full marks and a quiver full of arrows for a hapless cupid. 4 mars 2015
Par Beach Bum Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Z has been burned, his marriage going down in flames, and he’s not taking it well. This story, told from a guy's POV, is a primer on modern relationships/sexuality told by a fellow who cannot buy a clue. Z fancies himself a player, a modern man who knows and understands the rules, right up until the inexplicable happens and those rules change. And not in his favor.

When Z seeks solace in some “me time”, he’s saddled with a fellow traveler he can’t say no to, and finds an unexpected friendship with Penny, the Lady of the Manor. She’s an excellent listener, and better yet, she challenges Z to rethink everything he knows about love and the stereotypes he’d fallen into believing as true. She also encourages Z to take chances with online dating sites: no commitment, no pesky rules, an all-you-can-f— buffet of amazing choices.

And here is where Z and his “encounters” take a turn into laugh-out-loud, blush-worthy territory. Z isn’t a young buck, he’s got some age and mileage on him, but that doesn’t keep him from pursuing his ultimate goal of turning those new rules to his favor. To say it doesn’t go as planned is an understatement.

Greater Expectations is intelligent, witty and outrageous. At times it dives into a wee bit of preachiness amidst the musings on the nature of relationships and the Venus/Mars dichotomy, but overall it’s a refreshing look at male coping mechanisms from the perspective of someone who most times can’t see the forest for the trees.

I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard or enjoyed a book more. Full Marks and an extra quiver of arrows for a beleaguered Cupid.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Dating World Through A Guy's Eyes - Nice for a Change 18 février 2015
Par Paula L. Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I first saw this book, I had the title in my mind as Great Expectations which reminded me as a Classic novel , and I thought possibly it would be a rendition but it turned out to be something very different indeed. Greater Expectations is a romantic comedy book told through the view of a male called only as "Z". It starts off with a simple statistic about people divorcing over christmas and I was like hmmm, I liked that part as being a fan of random facts myself and then it moved to a neighbour telling a story and I was like - this is odd as to me it didn't really fit and I started to feel a bit confused. But, as the book moved on we read as "Z" started to hook back into the dating game and we read of all his up's and downs in the dating world. What was interesting as a reader is that this book is all told through the male perspective and we get a glimpse into the relationship basics of what it's like through the guy's eyes. I do admit being a female and reading this book in parts was quite difficult as the humor was definitely guy's humor and I was like hmmm, ok that's just cringeworthy and not worth talking about e.g jerking off etc. But overall, it was an eye-opener reading this book and glancing from the male's point of view and also written by a male as in the world of romance fiction, it is very rare to have a book with this content written by a male author.
So readers, if you are wanting the "LAD" point of view on relationships and wanting to catch a glimpse of what goes on in your guy's head , then check out Greater Expectations by Alexander McCabe and you will not be disappointed.
