Lesbian Romance Book Review of ‘Learning to swim’ by K.J.
What do you do when you’re in love with your best friend? Tell her? Keep it to yourself? What if she feels the same? What if she doesn’t? The sexual tension between these two women is obvious (at least to one of them), from the outset.
I am a big fan of lesbian romance books and so I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the two protagonists, Andrea and Lauren and the story is told from the POV of these two main characters which work well in this context. As characters, Andrea and Lauren are both well portrayed, developed and believable. Both women are very likable, strong independent women. The two women first meet at a fundraising event and although they are from very different professional backgrounds (one is a vet; the other an accountant), they hit it off as friends, at least at first.
The story was well crafted and rattles along at a decent pace. It is indeed a ripping yarn – in other words, it is a really good story, well told. The secondary characters, Hanna and Jo, are well developed and help to give the story both breadth and depth.
