Genre: Sapphic Romance
Erin Stewart is heading to her parent's 40th-anniversary party but does not want to hear questions about her love life so she hires a fake date to play the role of her girlfriend. When she meets her date, Steph, she isn't expecting to fall for her or the way she would change her and her family's lives forever...in more than one way.
I was looking for a cute sapphic romance to get me out of my reading slump and this one sort of fit the bill. I liked the chemistry between Erin and Steph and instantly wanted them to be happy. Watching Steph put Erin first, which she had never experienced before. Steph is the epitome of "if she could, she would." I was all for this story until the surprise twist. The surprise was hokey and deflating. It was just too much to even think possible. I know romances are supposed to be love against all odds but this was a bit too much for me.
