The Bottom Feeder

The Bottom Feeder is an eccentric read that leaves the reader feeling bewildered and intrigued. It’s an easy, enjoyable, and yet peculiar read. It’s full of colorful characters who are intertwined through acts of deception, violence, and greed. 

As confused as I was by the confusing plot, I have to say that I really loved the main character, Eddie Brennan. Eddie is a lawyer and a big tall Irishman from Sandusky, Ohio. When Hollywood comes to Sandusky, a major movie star gets injured and sustains memory loss; Brennan is called in to oversee her care and ensure her interests are protected. Jennifer Henniston is so obviously modeled after real-life star Jennifer Anniston that it makes me think Alexander meant for this to be known. Brennan can’t help but fall in love with the actress, and they are soon engaged. 

As the story unfolds, more and more of Brennan’s personality is revealed as if layers of an onion are being peeled back. His relationships with his business partner, Freddy, his brother, Donnie, and a few interesting women help paint the picture of a man who lets everyone walk all over him, and they love him for it. Brennan eventually sees the truth about Jennifer. He helps her get out of her studio contract, and as they part ways, he encourages her to be true to herself. 

I would’ve preferred that the author created a character rather than take the story out of someone’s real-life circumstances, but I still enjoyed the story overall. The book was entertaining, and I hope there is a sequel.

The Bottom Feeder: How to Love ’em and Lose ’em in 30 Days by Lexi Alexander is an intricate mix of relationship humor, and legal thriller as the characters develop through the story. This fast-paced novel is the perfect weekend read and will be impossible to put down once you start, as the drama hits hard and fast, and the laughter keeps you turning the pages.
