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

MAKE MY QUEER HEART HAPPY AND GO READ IT

Amazing!!!

I absolutely loved this book, and I have put it in my top three in my collection, and I have listened/read a lot of lesbian books. From the first chapter to the last; I could not stop listening to it; it had everything you want in a great book.

It had chemistry between all the characters, they were all brilliant. It was lovely to listen to a romantic, book with plenty of humour, this book had so many things happen that it had me on the edge of my seat and it played with all my emotions which makes it a fantastic listen. They start as a business relationship as Alison is hired to babysit Elena’s son Lucas while Elena goes out on dates, but you can feel the chemistry right from the start, that turns into friendship then love. The way Alison’s relationship with Elena and Elena’s son Lucas progressed through the book was super cute. I can really feel the love they share.

I will 100% be listening to this book again, and will be looking into buying more books by this author.

The narration is done by Kira Riley, I haven’t listened to her before and I just found out why this is as this is the only book on audible that she has narrated. She is an amazing talented narrator which made this book come to life, she is excellent at the different voices, and I hope if she reads this that you keep narrating lesbian audio books as I look forward to listening to more from you, and if any author of lesbian books read this you should contact her do the narration.

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.

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!

Overall a good listen, a few cringeworthy moments

Good narrative style and a fun approach. Well executed in the beginning but goes off the rails a tad in the last quarter or so. One cringeworthy scene that challenged my respect for all four characters involved. Narrator overall did a good job. Her Allison voice was spot on, but she didn't have great emotional depth in the voice she chose for Elena. Some of that was understandable, the character had a very formal speech style as written, but in some ways that made it call for more from the narrator in terms of tone. It didn't prevent me from enjoying the narration. There were a lot of fun moments in the story but it's not very tightly plotted.

okay

Narrator is super fast and the story wraps up kind of fast. Like the author just wanted to be done with the story.

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!

Ugh.

I was excited for this story because at least one of the women in the narrative is a woc but you literally only know she's Latina because the author tells and doesn't show. The author says the character is fluent in Spanish but doesn't show it. Feels as if the detail was added just so the other main character could say her speaking Spanish was "hot" and that made my skin crawl.

One of the characters is supposed to be a stiff, type A, mid to late 20 something year old but is written as if she's in her mid 40s and doesn't have a personality. There are plenty career driven, type A, stiff 20 something year olds in the world and I can safely bet none of them call other ppl "dear" as much as one of the main characters does.

The obsession with one of the character's abs, which was brought up over and over again, was laughable and made the character seem like nothing more than a tight bod at some points during the narrative.

On top of all this, the story is boring. I know a lot are saying it's a slow burn but there's difference between the aforementioned and filling the pages of the book with details and occurrences that don't move the story forward.

This story is obviously not for me.

Light

A light and little cheesy romance. Not much turmoil just a nice story. I wish the author didn’t dwell as much in the ‘foster child’ upbringing frequently mentioned throughout the story. A few hot sex scenes.

It was worth a credit to listen to a nice, non dramatic romance between have and have not.
