Laura Enfield was supposed to be in Portland for only a few days-just long enough to oversee a simple business deal before joining her conservative father on his political campaign. But when the closeted Laura romances an employee of the coffee shop her company is shutting down, things get suddenly complicated. Now, the lies she's told for years are beginning to unravel, and her biggest secret is about to be exposed. Laura can't stop thinking about the barista with the soulful eyes, but after a lifetime of deception, can she finally embrace something true?
I was given a copy a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I've been looking for more f/f stories to read, so I jumped on the opportunity to read and review this when it was offered to me.
All and all, it was a good story. Except it was much like many other contemporary romances I've read, but with lesbians. It isn't the type of book that will stand out, but it is nice for a quick feel good story.
My biggest problem with this story was how sexist it was against straight men. It got to be a little too much for me. At one point I wanted to shake one of the characters and tell her the reason things were going to crap was because she was a bad business owner, not because of the patriarchy.
I will say this though, I am actually interested in going to Portland after reading this book. It sounds like a place I'd enjoy.
I give this 3.5 out of 5 platypires.
