Lesbian Book Review of ‘Fear of falling’ by Georgia Beers.
Sophie James has been an internationally renowned singer since she was a teenager. When her lifelong manager dies, she finds herself lost and missing him like a father. As a substitute manager, Sophie’s record company sends Dana Landon who is resourceful, hard-working and gorgeous. As their attraction develops, Sophie has ideas to change her career which clashes with the recording company’s plans. Will Sophie and Dana be able to avoid conflict and have their happily ever after?
Georgia Beers is a consummated lesbian author whose work rarely disappoints and ‘Fear of falling’ is no exception. This is an entertaining and romantic lesbian love story based on the always winning formula of the celebrity falling for the girl next door (or the other way around). Ms. Beers fans will be happy to see the marks of her style: well-written dialogues, sizzling chemistry, the right amount of angst and a little bit of humour. The novel deals with different issues such as bereavement, family, coming out and the price of fame.
My only criticism is that Dana’s ex subplot felt a bit dragged out and, in my opinion, weakened the main characters’ relationship. Additionally, the descriptions of the music recording business seemed a bit simplified and naive, but it’s not that relevant in the context of a lesbian romance. Both issues were minor and didn’t deter me from thoroughly enjoying the story.
Overall, an entertaining celebrity romance that won’t disappoint Georgia Beers’ fans. 4 stars.
