Summary

Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with? Alice Di Santo has it all - everyone says so. Perfect boyfriend, great job, settled home life. But when she meets Rachel Cramer, all that changes. Because Rachel is everything Alice has never considered - and now cannot stop thinking about. 

This charming tale of coming out in your 30s sees Alice risk everything to go after what she wants, soon discovering she’s deserving of love - and especially this love, which takes her breath away. 

The fourth book in the London Romance Series features favourite characters from the previous three novels, and proves that falling in love is never scripted.

you feel every moment with the lead character

Another enjoyable read from Clare Lydon. Great narration and a feel good coming out story. I felt every moment with the characters and their angst.

Nice easy listen, but not my favourite

I found this a nice easy story to listen to that didn't require too much focus, perfect whilst in the office working.

I did however feel it was lacking slightly in the story line. I was really enjoying the beginning, but it then became a little predictable. I would still give another book from this author a try though!

As for the narration, I have listened to books by Lucy Price-Lewis before and LOVED her, this was one of the reasons why I chose to listen to this book, however this performance wasn't my favourite of hers either unfortunately. It was by no means bad, but I didn't find myself as invested as I usually am.

Cracking listen

Well written book by someone who has obviously been in love. I fell into the story and couldn't put it down.
An important factor for me is a good reader, easy to listen to and keeps the story alive.
I will be looking for more by the same author and narrator.

Excellent!

This is the best book by Lydon. Bringing Meg into the story is great. Her new books should link all the characters into the books. I preferred the voice over in this book compared to the others.

Really well narrated romance

A stand alone story well written and well narrated but I highly recommend listening to the other three books in this series. I’ve both read and listened to all in this series and listening does give a different perspective. If you’re looking for a good romance book to listen to while relaxin on holiday, then this and the other three are a definite. Excellent.

Tired

I wasn't all that impressed; the storyline was mediocre, and neither of the lead characters was particularly interesting or likable. Rachel was rather one dimensional, and Alice was weak, whiny, vacillating and spent far too much time wanting something or someone but lacking the will to actually do something about it. Tanya Grant is back in a supporting role and makes a better best friend than a lead character. This is likely the weakest of the five books in this series.

LOVED IT!!

Not your typical coming out story. It had everything you want in a story and more: emotional, sexy, comedic, and so much fun. I’m still smiling from the end of the book. The characters jumped off the page. Soo good!! The story and narration were on point. Highly recommend!

Fantastic

This has everything you expect from a Clare Lydon novel. It's emotional, funny, sweet, and hot all in wrapped in one nice bow. It's nice to read about the London series characters and find out what they're up to now.

A Public Outing

Alice De Santo has it all, wonderful family & friends, great job and perfect boyfriend. Then she meets Chef Rachel Cramer and her world turns on it’s axis. Her best friend had been telling her she was gay but Alice had never considered that it was true. A coming out in your thirties romance. Great performance. Recommend.

Excellent read!

The characters all have full depth and realistic interaction. Alice is lovable and slightly irritating at the same time. Rachel is truly desirable, from her looks to her cooking. This is a marvelous addition to the series. The reading performance by Lucy Price-Lewis brought this novel to life.

This series just keeps getting better

Lucy Price-Lewis does an outstanding job of bringing the characters in this fourth book of Clare Lydon's London series to life. Having listened to the previous books in this series the relationship that grows through this novel surprised me a bit and it is refreshing. The concept of open, honest and timely communication is examined in such a context that it is subtle but there none the less. The highly emotional, incredibly sensuous and sometimes humorous style that it is written in is engaging and fun. I would recommend that anybody who enjoys a good lesbian romance take the time for this entire series. This can be done as a standalone but it will be much more enjoyable with the building blocks of the three previous novels.

Fantastic series. My first LYDON experience

Highly recommend this series. Hilarious. Sweet. Best series I’ve listened to since French Kissing. Not as sexy but def heart warming. Rachael was my favorite character 😍.
