About Us

LezReviewBooks.com is a website dedicated to reviewing Sapphic books and audiobooks. We are a team of 10 reviewers each specializing in different subgenres such as romance, erotica, mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, etc. We have published more than 1400 reviews throughout  6 years of work.

What's in our name?

When we created LezReviewBooks back in 2016, we liked the tongue in cheek expression Lez/let’s obviously alluding to the word lesbian. Fast forward six years later, we understand that what used to be called “lesbian fiction” has evolved to be more inclusive and open to the nuances of gender identity and sexual expression.  While we agree that “Sapphic fiction” would be a more suitable term to reflect the type of literature we review and love, we are also fond of our original name, which is an important part of our site identity. Though nothing is written in stone and LezReviewBooks is always evolving and changing, we decided to keep our name as it is for the time being. But let’s be clear that despite the name, all types of Sapphic fiction are welcome on our website: lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, trans, non-binary, queer, and anything in between. There’s no space for exclusion and everyone is welcome here.

Tere was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She moved to the United States to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian and now practices in the northeastern region, where she lives with her wife, two daughters and a few other creatures. Her free time is spent corralling the kids, collecting Harry Potter items, usually unsuccessfully trying to sit by a campfire and reading lesfic. She loves medical and first responder stories but above all, a good romance with a great ending.

Lex Kent (Contributor)

Lex Kent was born and raised in Vermont where she still lives to this day. She currently works for the small town she lives in but itches to get out of the office. She is currently single, living with a dog that looks like a sausage. Around fifteen years ago she picked up a book by Radclyffe and has been in love with lesfic ever since. If she is not busy reading lesfic she is probably watching the Red Sox at Fenway Park or on TV. While Lex’s favorite lesfic books are fantasy, paranormal/urban fantasy, sci-fi and mysteries, she prefers them to have a great romance.

Her favorite genres are romance, crime, thriller, mystery or suspense, about cops and docs, first responders or sportswomen. After saving enough money she will be traveling, especially to South Africa, where she’s hunting all kinds of animals with her camera.

Joc (Contributor)

Joc was born in South Africa where she currently resides with her family. She is a pewter artist and also loves drawing and painting. She's been reading lesfic for a few years and she enjoys mainly lesbian romance. When she's not busy with her art or reading a book, you'll find her hiking with her daughters and dogs.


Jules GP (Contributor)

Jules was born in Mexico City but raised in Chicago where she still lives, sharing her home with two knucklehead dogs, a Westie and a Wheaten Terrier. For 30 years, she’s worked in hospital administration. A perfect day is a morning trek down park trails, an afternoon at a Red Stars or Cubs game, and then a late night at a music club. SciFi/SpecFic will always be her first love but she’s softened up a bit to appreciate gritty thrillers and angsty romance. NonFiction books are also plentiful on her shelves.

Carrie Kaler

Carrie Kaler (Contributor)

Carrie was born and raised in California. She played trombone, wrote terrible poetry, acted in some school plays, and went through a weird 'country' phase (which is probably a rite of passage for people from Yuba City). Always thinking she would become an actress, she is surprised as anyone to find herself working as a Tech consultant doing testing for retail systems. There was a brief seven year period when she went out of her mind and moved to Kansas for a first girlfriend. Now she lives in New Jersey where she loves the quaint-old-historic atmosphere and the ability to experience four seasons. She is married to an endearingly quirky woman who shares parenting responsibility for three spoiled fur children. She loves to read lesbian romance whenever she can. You can find her reviews at lezreviewbooks.com, goodreads.com, and her blog bookvark.com.
