Entertaining, important perspective...

but a little cookie cutter. It was written well, easy to listen to, I would have preferred less reflection during the sex scenes and a little more imagination. The narrator did well switching back and forth in her accents!

Excellent.

This was a great book and it deals a little with domestic violence within the lesbian home. Very important

Different

I found this different and maybe a little unexpected for Harper Bliss. The story was unique. I’m not sure if the narration put me off a little or what...can’t put my finger on what I didn’t like. Over all good, though.
