The Shape of You – Georgia Beers (Review)

41XA634kv9L

Spencer doesn’t make decisions anymore. It’s easier and safer for her to let other people choose things for her. So she’s reluctant but compliant when her fiancée signs up for a “Be Your Best Bride” class at the gym.

Rebecca doesn’t want to lead the class; she cares about real fitness, not coaxing vapid image-obsessed women to go down a dress size. An additional irritant is the disturbingly passive Spencer, who seems to have no backbone at all.

Spencer’s scared of Rebecca, and Rebecca has little sympathy for Spencer. They meet only in a place that neither of them wants to be. It’s not the ideal start to romance, but feelings blossom nonetheless.  Continue reading “The Shape of You – Georgia Beers (Review)”

Beauty and the Boss – Ali Vali (Review)

beauty-and-the-bossCharlotte has a precocious daughter, a deadbeat ex, and a dream of working in the fashion industry. Ellis has a reputation for womanising,  a high-fashion company, and several enemies.

Her Hometown Girl – Lorelie Brown (Review)

hometown_girlTansy is supposed to be getting married. Instead, after discovering her ex-fiancée having sex with one of the wedding caterers, she’s getting a tattoo. The tattoo she’s always wanted and her controlling partner has always stopped her getting.

Cai doesn’t do commitment. She’s happy on her own, independent and invulnerable. But when an adorable, impertinent, and deeply damaged Tansy appears in the tattoo parlour where she works,  she’s tempted to reconsider.

Her Hometown Girl is a love story that’s also about rebuilding identities and recovering from abusive relationships. In case it wasn’t clear from the set-up above, both of the main characters are women.  Continue reading “Her Hometown Girl – Lorelie Brown (Review)”

Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space (Review)

Cover-1“Trust me – it’s not porn.”

That’s a line – the most memorable line – from a review request I received. It’s not a common line in review requests; off-hand, I can’t think of anything I’ve reviewed, or even read, that the author felt needed the same disclaimer. Given the title, and the cover, and the concept, and the characters though, I do understand.

After a glowing green meteor crashes down into the woods outside of town, lesbian zombies start seducing women and devouring men. I know that sounds ridiculous. It’s up to a lesbian-obsessed loser and a practical lesbian (not a zombie one) to save the day. I know that sounds ridiculous as well.
