Lesbian Romance Book Review of ‘A heart this big’ by Cheyenne Blue
Australian farm owner Nina Pellegrini runs a programme for city kids to experience rural life. When a lawsuit threatens to ruin her small business, Nina seeks help from Leigh Willoughby, a big city high-powered lawyer with no interest in country life. But somehow, big-hearted Nina and her challenging daughter manage to convince Leigh to help them. As the lawyer gets the defense prepared, she discovers that farms can be fun and that Nina is as beautiful as kind-hearted.
This is an opposites-attract, slow-burn lesbian romance with a setting in the rural outskirts of Sidney. The story is set in both countryside and city areas and the author manages well to describe the contrasts of both places as well as the women who work and live there. Nina, the country girl, is kind-hearted (hence the book title), nature-loving and always tries to see the good side in people. Leigh, the city girl, is a bit of a workaholic, lives in a high rise building and, as a good lawyer, is more realistic. Do opposites attract? Oh, yes…Read More »
Lesbian Book Review of ‘You matter’ by Jazzy Mitchell.
Chrissy Kramer is used to rejection. When she got pregnant as a teenager, her parents kicked her out and she was left alone with her baby. Now, fifteen years later, she works as a paralegal for Reggie Esposito, a senior law partner at a big Boston law firm and her son Ben is becoming a wonderful young man. When a disgruntled former client attempts to kill her boss, Chrissy saves her life but gets hurt in the process. As Chrissy and Ben stay at Reggie’s house to help with her recovery, both women decide to embark in a relationship in which they’ll both have to decide what really matters.
This novel has the uplifting premise that every person matters despite their own beliefs that they might not make a difference. Chrissy is a character with very low self-esteem, justified by how her parents rejected her when she got pregnant as a teenager. It’s natural that she feels insecure about relationships, and the book explores her fears and hesitancy towards a romantic entanglement. She sees Reggie as everything she feels she cannot be, elegant, classy and successful. Reggie, on the other hand, sees Chrissy for who she is, a dedicated mother, a hard worker, and a beautiful woman.Read More »
