After landing on such a find (I cannot praise that book enough!!!), I was adamant to go search for another yuri book to quench my thirst for more girl x girl romance. Actually, to call these books yuri are a severe understatement. I’m looking for books about full fledged relationships between women. Cool huh?! ^_^
What happens when you fall in love with your best friend? Will you ever move on?
It’s an interesting centre piece and it definitely made it stand out from the rest. The main protagonist is Austy – an attractive, petite prosecutor who with her appearance and brains, should very well be attached to another woman. However, she’s hung up on her best friend, Willa, and it’s not because she’s straight, but because she is already partnered up with another good friend of hers. Austy is a wonderful person and would never hurt either of them so she decides to move away from Charlottesville, Virginia to Seattle. She needs to start a new life and stay away from her best friend – at least for most days of the month. Conveniently, Willa has an office in Seattle and is there like once a week (something like that). Austy is desperately trying move ahead with her life and it doesn’t get better when a wonderful distraction like Elise enters into her life. Elise is a FBI agent and became acquainted with Austy after she was her expert witness in a few cases. Can Austy forget about her best friend and find new love?
The book picks on an interesting enough idea, but I felt that we did not see enough internal struggle within Austy. I felt that was one of the key weaknesses of the book. The chemistry between the characters is definitely not as strong although the “intimate” scenes are definitely in a lot more detail!!! *gets a fan* Compared to “And Playing the Role of Herself“, the writing also pales a little. Call me nit picky but I’m sure there were a few errors that the editing should have picked up. I did kind of like the colourful bunch of friends that was in the backdrop of the story. Some I wouldn’t mind knowing more about.
On the whole it was an enjoyable read. I’d give it a 7 out of 10. I’m checking out the other books of this author as I know she has written books on some of the friends in this book. Now THAT I am quite interested in!!
