However Micah holds back a lot of herself and can appear to be aloof. Also she avoids drama whenever she can. Growing up she was abused and still carries the old pains, which she does her best to bury. Her bike is her friend and she feels freedom when she rides, alone.
On the outside I found Micah to be lovable despite her tough act. Inside is a heart of gold waiting to emerge. The feelings she had for her lover Olivia's daughter, Regina were genuine and the motherly love was definitely there. It was beautiful how the two bonded over similar interests.
Micah is one hell of a woman and one who she can be proud of. I admired her bravery when she realized she needed to confront her fears head on. Her strength was as though she was a big tree in a strong windstorm. The vibration felt was that of power and courage. Her actions gave me encouragement.
Olivia is a sophisticated workaholic attorney, who is almost the opposite of Micah. Where Micah is rough around the edges, Olivia is feminine and self assured. At the same time, she is a strong and daring woman. She burns with passion and knows how to get want she wants.
The initial impression I had of Olivia was that she was cold hearted and official; at times, controlling and covert. The way Olivia was described made the character believable. The authors did an excellent job on how they slowly revealed her.
The authors portrayal of the sensuality between the lovers is magical and romantic. It is well written and defiantly for mature audiences.
What can I say? I just adore both women. I want to thank the authors for creating such two very special characters. I loved reading how the love relationship between Olivia and Micah evolves. Both women have experienced a lot in their lives and compliment each other.
Never have I been so attracted to the characters of a book as I was with both Micah and Olivia. I found myself thinking about them even when I wasn't reading. If you want to experience this mind opening journey, pick this one up right away.
Switching Gears is not a quick read but trust me, it is definitely worth your time. This story is extraordinary! "Switching Gears" has forever changed me.
The chemistry between Olivia and Micah felt visceral, true, and absolutely reasonable. The exploration of the tension that most experience upon first recognizing desire and then trying to figure out how to act, captivated memory. More than the mere recognition of desire, but the insecurities at play when pursuing someone outside of assumed class/profession/circle, seemed spot on. Wonderfully developed through the internal dialogue of Olivia and Micah, the interplay between main characters and others within their varied circles, made me laugh, wistfully, remembering my own journeys. In order for a book to achieve such resonance in me, the plot had to be well crafted, enough that it seemed as though my own tale was being told. Wonderful book. I highly recommend it.
I enjoyed this book very much and I think anyone who reads it will enjoy it as well. I look forward to more books by this author.
