My Recommendation

I would like to extend my gratitude to the author  #CheriRitz, publisher #BellaBooks and NetGalley for sending me this advanced reader’s copy in return for a fair, frank, and honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and how they were developed through the story. When the girls were in the Café meeting for lunch it took me back to the days of The L Word. The story was predictable, but I loved it. Many lesbian storylines are predominantly about sex, and graphic sex at that but this one was not which was refreshing. There was more to each character than just that. 

The story begins with Mara and Victoria meeting whilst Mara is in the hospital with her friend. Mara and Victoria both were attracted to each other straight away but there were still many things thrown at them. Victoria had heard that Mara had a sketchy past sleeping with loads of women so despite wanting her initially she keeps her cards close to her chest a little. Conversely, Mara is captivated by Victoria as soon as she meets her and tries herself to change from the person she used to be. I am not going to say anything else about the storyline as I do not want it to ruin anyone else’s experience of reading this book.

Safe to say I will definitely be reading more of this author’s books and hopefully be approved to read more of their lesbian fiction. As a lesbian myself it was great to read about normal everyday women and there be an actual genuine storyline.
