First let me say, and I hate to have to even say this in this day and age, but if you are uncomfortable with Lesbian Romance for whatever reason, this is probably not a review for you. If you do not have a problem with a romance with a same sex couple, please read on.
This is the first time I have read a lesbian story, but I enjoyed reading it. The author did an amazing job as the book is very well written, and I easily related to the characters. Jordan, a physical therapist, and Kristen, a Human Resource Manger, Jordan is openly gay and Kristen is in a very unhappy marriage to her husband, John. Kristen and Jordan first formally through a mutual acquaintance.
I could sympathize with Kristen as she was married and didn’t think that she was a lesbian.Jordan having previously been deeply hurt by a past lover was against any relationship that went past one night. Any one that has been hurt in the past can relate to that. After Jordan and Kristen meet, they form a friendship and their relationship naturally progressed. Jordan’s romantic side was so sweet, and the way they truly loved each other and took care of each other really showed the depth of their love.
I was glad the author including sex scenes as it added to the couples authenticity and showed the passion they have for one another. It is tastefully and authentically written about sex between two women. Had the author left out sex scenes, it would have been a disservice to her readers. For those who think they would be uncomfortable reading about two women, remember 50 Shades of Gray, you can handle it.
I love romance novels, and as I am not gay which really shouldn’t matter, I read the book without any hesitation as every person should be able to love whomever they so chose regardless of sex.
I give it 4 out of 4 “Anam Cara”
My mother is a lesbian and she came out when I was about 17. I have always supported her and loved her no matter what. To me, it doesn’t matter who you love as long as they make you happy. So, mom, I dedicate this review to you. Happy birthday and I love you, your baby girl!!!
