Summary

A prominent figure amongst New York City's fashion elite, Elena Vega is a successful businesswoman and single mother to an adorable three-year-old son, Lucas. Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out.

At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas.

Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University.

Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job.

After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

The vast difference between the two women's social statuses, however, may be an obstacle not easily overcome.

Perfection

Loved this author for years and read this book more times than I can count. Got SOOOO excited when I discovered it had been released as an audiobook and bought it immediately!
Such a prefect storyline and the characters are great. The reader even kinda sounds like Anna Kendrick which is a perk for listeners :P

Loved the Book and the Audio Made it Better

I loved this book with its quirks on dialogue and everything so when I saw the audiobook was made I had to get it. To me it made the book all the better. Kira Riley does a great job with voices (subtle differences in the characters voices). If you loved or even just liked the book, you will enjoy this narration of it!

Hot! Hot!! Hot!!!

It is a sweet sensual love story, with hot sexiness mixed in to make for one amazingly great book! That would make for an awesome movie! The whole book I couldn't help but picture Anna Kendrick as Allison.

Feel good read!

I love this book. It’s now at the top of my list of lesbian romance novels. The characters are witty and real and I found myself laughing constantly at the dialogue. I was expecting more of a climax toward the end but I feel that the progression was much more realistic than most other romance books.

Don’t pass on this one!

Great book, great narration.

I'm very accepting when it comes to mediocre narration but when it's done well, it stands out. Kira Riley's narration was great. It's a shame it looks like this is the only book she's done on here. But great book as well. I loved both of the books I've listened to of KLs.

She's done it again.

KL Hughes has done it again. Written sophistication, beauty, comedy, and heartfelt all in one book. The LGBT+ community is lucky to have this talented writer. And goodness, the narration?!!! Amazing. Lucas was my favorite!!

Positively special

It was very uplifting to listen to a story in this genre that the only drama involves everyday life and the background of the people we meet.
The characters are real and a true sense of equality ran through the story. Very refreshing to read a story in which there were no barriers between social status, gender, or race.
This was a poignant story and a fun story and a hopeful story. All the ingredients needed for the world today!
