This is a very entertaining slow-burn romance. It’s the story of two women falling in love, as simple as that, with no big dramas or angst. I have to admit that I didn’t expect this story judging from the book’s title and cover but, as the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover…
This is Fiona Riley’s first book but it doesn’t really show as it is very well written and fabulously edited by Bold Strokes Books. The characters are multifacetic and their chemistry works great. The book is full of hot sex scenes (maybe a bit too much for a romance novel) but overall it works well as it shows the typical passionate stage of early relationships. But the author doesn’t stop in this “young love” representation, as she describes the personalities and conflicts of the main characters with an unusual deepness for this genre.
The secondary characters and subplots add interest to the story which has a coherence and credibility from start to finish. I particularly enjoyed the story twist in the last chapters which added an element of surprise.
Overall, 4 stars. An enjoyable and entertaining read. Will definitely read the authors’ next book.
I’ve received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
