Sometimes we don’t know what we want or what we like unless we allow ourselves to open our minds and voice our desires. I have to say that the driving force of the story was not only the location it was set in, but the depth of the connection of the character's. Getting a glimpse in each characters history allowed to me to gather an understanding of why they were as they were.
Out of a bad relationship and fresh out of college, Natalie Ross takes a job as an assistant to the editor of the fashion blog Stitch. She wants to be a journalist and hopes this job will open doors for her. Scarlett is a powerful woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. She happens to be going through some personal issues and somehow the two women start an interesting affair. But, what happens when things in their separate lives start to wreak havoc, can they figure out how to control the situation?
I completely loved this story and can’t wait to read it again. I loved the carnal energy between the two women. I enjoyed how Natalie came to into her own, when she realized what she liked and wanted. The part of the story that I loved the most was how Natalie found her voice and learned to take control of her life and decisions. I found the blossoming of the relationship they were building quit loving. The sex scenes were a bit different from other books I read. It was a different kind of intimacy and sensuality. But they were done tastefully. I also felt that the personal issues that each woman was facing did bring depth to each of their characters. There are some serious issues in this book that happen in some of our lives. The way these serious issues are brought up in the story are done with such a delicateness and importance. I will definitely be reading more from this wonderful author. I will always encourage others to read stories written by Magnolia Robbins.
I have received the book for free as an ARC member in exchange for an honest review.
I did, admittedly, find myself struggling with the content a bit in the beginning, but that quickly subsided, as the story moved along. Ultimately, the book not only explores the (obviously) huge difference between consensual submission and an abusive relationship, but it also does this in a way that really - sometimes subtly, yet definitively - illustrates the contrast on an emotional level.
Having said all that, I really enjoyed the characters and the character development. Natalia and Scarlett both struggle with some of the “aftershocks” of their respective previous relationships, which feature prominently into the story, and simultaneously allow insights (both big and small) into their personalities.
And although I’m saying this very badly, it was the subtlety of their interactions (though some were far from subtle! Ha!) and the unforced development of the relationship that really drew me into the book. The author didn’t rely on over-the-top gestures to show the progress between the two protagonists. Instead, the relationship really grew almost organically, and that made the characters and story all the more relatable, believable, and enjoyable to me.
To make a long story short: In spite of some initial misgivings, I thought the book was really fun, at times sweet, well written, and struck the right balance in regards to story, characters, conflict and an element of mystery.
I debated the 5 star vs a 4 star rating, and would’ve gone for 4 1/2 if it were an option. But since it wasn’t, I ultimately decided that, since I really enjoyed most of the book, 5 stars was fair.
This is not your run of the mill lesbian romance, not by a long shot. The two women fall in love with each other without the high drama. Now this is not to say it's boring, each woman has problems they must overcome and they do by helping each other. The sex scenes were tame but not boring. You could almost feel the love each has for one another.
I am generally not one that likes where a story goes for two or three sequels but in this case I would like to see more of these fascinating women.
Again great story, thank you Maggie.
