Lesbian Debut Book Review of ‘The Song of the Sea’ by Jenn Alexander
4.50 Stars. This was an excellent lesbian debut book for Alexander. Alexander won this year’s Sandra Moran scholarship from GCLS’ Writing Academy. Anna Burke won this scholarship last year and with her highly rated and successful books Compass Rose and Thorn, I had high expectations that Alexander would continue in a similar vein. I’m happy to say that I was really impressed by this drama-romance. Not only can Alexander write, but she knows how to make a reader feel. Alexander now has my attention and I will be keeping my eye out for her future books.

Lesbian Romance Book Review of ‘Beautiful Dreamer’ by Melissa Brayden.
Philadelphia real state broker Devyn Winters left her small hometown of Dreamers Bay a few years ago. She likes the fast pace of a big city and works hard in her successful career. When she comes back to Dreamers Bay due to a family emergency, she meets again with former high school classmate Elizabeth Draper. Unlike Devyn, Elizabeth likes the slow pace and small-town dynamics. They couldn’t be more different from one another, but their attraction is undeniable. They both know that any relationship will be temporary. How are they going to avoid heartbreak?
This is a return to hometown lesbian romance book between two former high school classmates who didn’t share the same social circles in the past and seem to have opposite personalities. Elizabeth lives in Dreamers Bay and is the sole owner of a small company that does odd jobs, she’s sociable, perky and cute. Devyn is a go-getter, successful real state broker who only socialises for work purposes and has no friends. Do opposites attract?
Even though ‘Beautiful Dreamer’ started with a bit of a fast-moving mystery, quite unusual for this author, it felt as if the book dragged a bit in the first half and I couldn’t feel that sizzling chemistry and tension between the mains that Ms. Brayden is so well known for. However, in the second half, the book picked up the pace and the romance developed beautifully.Read More »
Lesbian Fantasy Book Review of ‘Raven, Storm and Shadow’ by Nita Round
4.25 Stars. I just love this series! This is the third installment of Round’s Touch of Truth series and another really good read. This series has been extremely consistent with all the books being well written and entertaining reads. Round has an incredible imagination that makes this steampunk-fantasy series really special. There is nothing out there in lesfic like this series and I just love authors that can be so completely different.
This is a series so each book picks up where the last one ended. This series really needs to be read in order, but since all the books are good, it’s no hardship. Round recently decided to try self-publishing so this third book is less expensive than the first two. Currently at only 4.99, in my opinion, this book is a steal. And while it is self-published, I didn’t notice any issues sometimes common in self-publishing. This book was as well written as Round’s books always are.
Lesbian Book Review of ‘This Foreign Affair’ by Harper Bliss
Zoey Das is a journalist with her own television show in Australia. She is still finding her footing even six months after her partner of 16 years broke off the relationship. A serendipitous event puts Camille Rousseau, a scientist, in her path and the connection is immediate. The only problem is Camille is a week away from returning home, all the way in Paris, France. The holiday fling that feels like so much more may just be what Zoey needs to start a new chapter in her life.
This was a very good story. The mains are likable, very mature characters as should be at close to 50 years old. The book is told in first person from Zoey’s POV. Have I mentioned I love first person POV? Because I do!Read More »
