You're lucky if you find a soulmate and to find it twice is a blessing. I enjoyed the story and now I have my eyes on more Jodie Griffin books. Thanks for the good read
I enjoyed this story. Both Talia and Eve know what loss is like and have to make conscious decisions about whether to let their hearts be involved again. Their attraction to each other isn't easy to put aside, and they share some sexy scenes together as they sort through their feelings. The relationships they have with their children are very realistic and there are timely conversations about the every day realities women face, from Eve's job as a gay black woman in her high position in the police department to Talia's daughter who recently caught her boyfriend cheating on her. There's a small element of suspense with a threat to female officers weaved through the story that culminates in some drama and intensity in the second half. Fortunately Eve and Talia find a way to get through it all and there is a lovely happy ending for the new couple.
Talia is a bisexual Jewish woman who was married to a man and has grown children. She never explored her bisexuality before but has always been attracted to both men and woman. Eve was also married to a man but has spent many years involved with women. She has a grown son. Sparks fly between Talia and Eve immediately but Talia, new to the world of loving women, and rusty at flirting with anyone, is unsure if she's reading Eve's cues correctly, and there's the issue that Eve is her boss. Eve is a black gay woman, and conscious of the fact that she's Talia's boss. Despite the fact that they talk a lot about that problem, they don't ever really sit down and consider their options, and neither seems aware of the power imbalance between them.
The romance is sweet and fun. They are good together, have fun together, and are patient with each other. Eve is patient with Talia as she explores her first relationship and romance with a woman. Both of them showed a lot of respect for each and didn't play games. If one of them messed up, it wasn't drawn out. They talked with each other and they apologized to each other. It was, mostly, a relationship between equals. I say mostly because Eve was Talia's boss which can't help but create a power imbalance which was ignored. To Eve's credit, she treated Talia like another employee at work and both of them worked hard at keeping their behavior purely professional when at work.
I had mixed feelings about how well Talia's kids handled finding out she was bi. On the one hand, it was refreshing to have a lack of angst and fuss but at the same time, her daughters were casual in their acceptance. I suspect that says more about me than it does about the characters.
I think my favorite thing about the story were the relationships. Eve and Talia, Eve and her son, Talia and her daughters, Talia and Eve's son, etc. They were vibrant, strong, and sweet and drove the story. The story is low on angst and high on texture and depth and made me feel good.
I received a copy from the publisher for review.
Okay, to add a little more nuance: This might be the first lesfic novel I've read with two protagonists so old. I'm kind of young myself so I sort of felt like I was reading about people my mom's age BUT I still absolutely could relate to the MCs and it was GREAT to read about a lesbian relationship with older characters, at a different stage in their life. Also I am ALWAYS here for a Jewish bisexual MC (bc I am a bisexual myself, and half Jewish) and that combined with a black MC for an interracial relationship made for some nice diversity!!! Also, I just thought the main characters were very good together? They quarreled sometimes but after years of being married (to other people) they knew how to compromise and didn't make everything melodramatic. The crises in their lives were important but they stayed level headed. They feel...stable.
Feel good and sweet and beautiful and just SO GOOD.
