Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out.At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas.Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University.Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job.After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.The vast difference between the two women's social statuses, however, may be an obstacle not easily overcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful book! This book was a near perfect read: great chemistry between the main characters; entertaining and often hilarious supporting characters; sweet and sensual romance; plenty of warm and fuzzy moments between various characters; and light on the drama. My guess is that this matches the formula for beach reading or total escapist reading and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for that kind of story to lose yourself in for a few hours. Or if you simply want a good romance between women that you have yet to see on the large or small screen, give this one a read for its evocative dialogue and action. I know that this story began as a fan fiction story online and while I did not read it in that incarnation, I am familiar with the fandom it was written for (the so called SwanQueen pairing in the ‘Once Upon a Time’ universe), the characters these were inspired by. The author did a fantastic job translating the characters and other details so they remained both familiar to fanfic readers and relatable to those meeting the characters for the first time in the novel. One exception to that is the character of Elena who is 27 years old, 5 years older than Allison, and who speaks like a much older person or one who has learned very precise English as a second language. Elena comes across as stiff and stilted and although frequent references are made to her needing to relax or loosen up, her speech (with few exceptions) remains formal whether she is in work meetings or with family and friends even when her actions are more relaxed and she does let loose. I found this a bit frustrating, but knowing the show character she is based on (who is much older and of a wholly different and otherworldly kind of upbringing than the character Allison is based on) helped me to overlook her lack of contractions, slang and other forms of informal speech that would have helped her to sound less robotic. Perhaps this was done to distinguish her voice in the novel from the other characters’ voices, but for someone unfamiliar with the show character who inspired Elena’s character they may find her off putting or standoffish in some scenes of the story. Clearly a skilled writer with a rich imagination, I look forward to reading more of KL Hughes works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Popcorn Love I really liked this story, it was nicely paced. Great slow burn romance. Loved the characters, very relatable. There are some really great laugh out loud moments throughout the story too.
