    This is a

    love story.

That same day after work hours, Cassidy bumps into Katie at a wine bar and asks her out for a drink. Katie accepts unenthusiastically but soon the views and feelings will change for both.

    is narrated from alternating points of view and takes place in NYC which is one of my favorite settings for books. I liked the story but felt it was a bit breezy, not much depth but

    Overall, I enjoyed it and recommend it to readers of romance and contemporary fiction.

    Between all the stereotypes, the lackluster characters, and the fade-to-black sex scenes, this was a real dud. I’m hella bummed. Where are all the great F/F romances hiding?! 😭

    If this book featured a heteronormative couple, it would get absolutely zero press (and would have a way lower rating). Because it is not a good book at all. The characters are superficially drawn and the relationship between them advances at an absurd pace; things that should pose significant barriers and obstacles to their relationship (e.g., conservative/disapproving family, first same-sex relationship for one character after decades of never having questioned her sexuality) either don't rock

    If this book featured a heteronormative couple, it would get absolutely zero press (and would have a way lower rating). Because it is not a good book at all. The characters are superficially drawn and the relationship between them advances at an absurd pace; things that should pose significant barriers and obstacles to their relationship (e.g., conservative/disapproving family, first same-sex relationship for one character after decades of never having questioned her sexuality) either don't rock the boat at all or are tidily addressed so quickly as to strain the reader's credulity past what is reasonable. You might expect that a book in which one of the main characters grapples with her sexuality would be thought-provoking and deeply introspective, except there is no grappling to be done (outside of the bedroom, that is) and Katie's transition from recently-enganged-to-a-man heterosexual female to unconcerned lesbian (or, at the very least, bisexual... maybe pansexual?) is so fast and relatively stress-free it is laughable. It's frustrating that this author apparently thought so little about these issues and couldn't be bothered to flesh out a real story, one in which she wasn't afraid to dive into the points of conflict and let things get messy and complicated (you know, like how life actually is) rather than hurriedly sweeping things under the rug all for the sake of a HEA. I finished this book feeling supremely unsatisfied with how the material was handled, and was also offended that such a mediocre, bland piece of pap will inevitably be heralded as "groundbreaking" and "brave"—solely because it features a same sex couple—when it is actually anything but. It's filled with stereotypes and caricatures, as if Perri binged her way through the tv show The L Word but has never met an actual real human woman in her life.

    Conventional & safe, ironically this dross undermines how important it is for the publishing industry to celebrate inclusiveness and diversity and offer up titles that are an accurate reflection of its readers. Please, some other author, tell this story the way it deserved to be told. I resent that readers are feeling they should grade this thing on a curve & that I initially felt I should throw it some extra stars just because it had the guts to depict a "nontraditional" couple. Surely in 2018 readers should have more options than this if they're looking for a modern-day lesbian love story/rom com? Surely LGQBT readers shouldn't be further marginalized by being made to feel that even though this is a shitty, hollow depiction of a non-hetero couple that at least it was depicted & published at all, so take what you can get? FUCK THAT NOISE. All book lovers—regardless of sexuality—deserve better than this.

    This is a cute, fun, fast read, and I'm always thrilled when a major publisher does f/f romance and I know people are gonna actually be able to find queer reads on bookshelves. That said, this book would've been half the length if anyone had ever acknowledged the existence of bisexuality, which is a good reminder of why I prefer queer traditionally published YA f/f to queer adult traditionally published f/f by an exponent of a billion. (Literally, the "straight" MC has a conversation with hersel

(Literally, the "straight" MC has a conversation with herself that's just "am I gay now? Does that mean I never loved my fiance? I guess!" *punches self in face*) But - lesbian romance on bookshelves! With a cute, professional couple that goes from work adversaries to friends to lovers on (realistic) hyperspeed! That I read in a single night! More of this, please!

    Why I Love It

    As a woman who used to have a boyfriend but now has a wife I have to say that there aren’t a lot of romantic comedies out there aiming for my very specific demographic. So I was pleasantly surprised to encounter this breezy story about a woman who discovers she has a few things to learn about love.

    Katie, a blonde corporate lawyer with an affinity for chic Dior footwear, has just been dumped by her vegan boyfriend. She’s spending her days sulking over barbecue and Wild Turkey in her wrecked Manhattan apartment (she’s a transplant from the South). Cassidy, her intimidating opposing counsel on a high-stakes closing, couldn’t be more different. She’s fond of $300 haircuts, well-tailored men’s suits, and the family she’s made at a divey lesbian bar called “Cheers,” where she spends most nights trolling for new romantic conquests. They meet, and an adorably awkward game of will-they-or-won’t-they cat and mouse ensues.

    This book is like popcorn! It’s the kind of bubbly romcom you can’t stop reading despite getting sunburned on your lawn chair because you haven’t realized how much time has gone by.

    is like

    updated for the age of Instagram and Taylor Swift, a flirty and fun story of two girls trying to figure out where they fit in the world, and if they fit together. It’s the sweetest, sunniest beach read. Don’t forget your sunscreen.
