But I really really enjoyed reading it! It is such a lovely story about two people who are both misunderstood by the world they live in.
I now have a far greater understanding of asexuality. I've come from a place of complete ignorance to a place I where I can be far more supportive of a community than I have previously been.
(*It’s one way to portray it and not an universal portrayal.)
This book was just…it made me happy and I adore it!
I read this when I wasn’t feeling so good about being ace. There had been some BS on twitter that really dragged me down (though I should know better by now than to look – also when is there no BS regarding asexuals and ace-erasure?), so I decided to read this instead of another book I had planned to read. And this story definitely came at the right time for me – the dedication already made me tear up. Seeing a positive representation of an ace character – one with friends who are accepting without restrictions – and one who is content with being ace, really helped me. I really can’t put into words how much I love it when I see a protagonist who is like me – or at least very similar.
Gabrielle and Abigail come from different worlds. Gabrielle is used to not worrying about how she’ll pay the next rent, or if she’ll lose her job. Her life isn’t perfect, but in some ways she has it easier than Abigail who is worrying about possibly losing her job and potentially not being able to afford rent anymore.
I loved how both got to know each other, fell in love and also learned that their differences don’t necessarily have to keep them apart if they make compromises.
Elyse Springer did a fantastic job of portraying each characters worries without it being too much. Thaw was still mostly a light read.
Gabrielle’s transformation from “ice queen” to “Brie” left me with warm fuzzy feelings. I really enjoyed the opposites attract-aspect of this story. In some ways Gabby and Abigail couldn’t be more different but at the same time there’s a lot that they can relate to with each other. So seeing them slowly fall in love was just beautiful.
More than once I found myself wanting to be in New York to see the things they saw. The scenery just came alive on page and I couldn’t get enough.
I also loved how they found a middle-ground on the sexual aspect of their relationship without Abigail having to bend and twist just so she could be with Gabrielle. I want more stories like that!
I didn’t want this story to end. This story is special and beautiful, the pacing is great and I just have so much <3 for it. Now I’m really looking forward to the next story in the series! If you haven’t read them yet, I strongly urge you to do that.
I really loved how relatable Abby's struggle is in making people understand her perspective, not wanting sex, facing the typical assumptions and the too familiar reactions. Being ace myself, I wanted to slam my head against the wall or something just reading it.
Her fear of her and Bries relationship ending because of something she doesn't want and can't give is a struggle that's incredibly real. Having this written by an ace author is really amazing. Plus, the depiction of Gabrielle's predicament and the library setting was definitely a bonus.
This book is worth a recommendation not only to aces finding themselves between these pages but also to everyone else as to enjoy a well written story and understand a part of ace experience on the way.
