First up, this is not a book about a lesbian heroine. Neither is it about waving the flag of feminism. What it’s about is a near-40 year old woman who is incredibly disillusioned with love and relationships. She doesn’t need a man to support her but neither is she naive about her role as the office eye candy.
Her solution for her romantic woes is to turn into a lesbian. Never mind that her BFF, who really is a lesbian, is forever telling her it’s not a switch to be turned on and off, Giselle is forging ahead. Her foray into dating other women I found to be very funny and dotted with more than the odd moment of crassness thrown in. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments for me.
Giselle meets Collier when she arrives for a date with his sister. Collier is utterly confused to find himself attracted to Giselle. She’s the first woman to interest him in some time yet what can come of it?
For me, this book is split into two parts: Giselle dates lesbians and then Giselle and Collier embark on a fairly traditional romance. Both parts work well and I really enjoyed reading about Giselle and Collier as a couple. They really are suited. The standout part however, was Giselle’s same sex dating adventures. They were fun a lot of fun to read.
About the audio: I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. Julia Duvall does a great job of bringing Giselle and all her crazy to life. Her highs, lows, frustrations and successes are brought to life
There are multiple female characters and they each had a distinct voice. The male voices were also well done.
