Opposites attract in this playful and laugh-out-loud rom-com from Lambda Award finalist Karelia Stetz-Waters.
Cade Elgin has a life and career in New York City, and she's determined to get back to both as soon as possible after her aunt's funeral in Portland. However, when she unexpectedly inherits her aunt's sex toy store -- and has to save it from foreclosure -- Cade realizes she's not going anywhere. But making Share the Love profitable won't be as easy as Cade had hoped. Her new partner has an infuriating lack of business sense, and an infuriating ability to turn Cade on.
Selena Mathis knows that nothing is more important than saving Share the Love. Not her pride, not her inconvenient attraction toward her new business partner. Cade may be more buttoned-up than Selena usually goes for, but that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to turn the store around. But the more they work together, the harder it becomes for Selena to ignore her growing feelings for Cade. And she starts to wonder if there is something more important than saving Share the Love.

Y’alllllllll FINALLY. I’ve been on the hunt for sapphic rom nov for a friend who doesn’t read romance for a long time. I wanted it to be well-written, heartfelt, insightful, sexy and fun. That is so easy to find in FM and even MM romances, but so many FF romances I’ve read are often overshadowed by angst and doubt and coming out, all of which are important to explore in their own right, but they didn’t share joy and light as well.
But this isn’t that. Satisfaction Guaranteed is finally the sapphic rom nov the world deserves! Cade and Selena are well-crafted, delightful characters that I loved getting to know. Being thrown together to save a sex toy shop was funny and the perfect backdrop for their love story. There was light steam, a fun cast of characters, and a truly lovely falling in love journey. So excited for this to come out and recommend to all I know!
When I started this book, I thought it was going to be a goofy, funny, sexy read. And it was all of those things but it also was quite possibly the best romance novel I have ever read. Cade and Selena are two characters I rooted for individually and together. I felt their painful backstories and the way they kept them apart and pushed them together. I felt the emotional rollercoaster of this story so acutely that it made my hands tingle.
This is not a very eloquent review but I was quite simply bowled over by this book and haven't recovered yet.
