about

In this rom-com, Wendy Cedar is an employee at Savin Aerospace with a massive crush on her boss, recent divorcee, Janet Lace. After Janet accidentally stumbles upon Wendy’s email about a sex dream she’s been having, she decides to see if the reality can live up to the fantasy. But when the relationship starts to be more than a kinky office romance, the two have to decide if they can make it as a couple or if they were better off as boss and employee.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars The aerospace industry storyline is a colourful depiction of office politics, turf wars, bids for contracts and beautiful feats of aerospace engineering. I found these parts of the book fascinating and was impressed how the mechanics of airplanes and helicopters could be used symbolically as well as literally in the story. Georgette Kaplan clearly knows how to write a thought provoking scene; she’s also adept at writing hilarious conversations between characters, some of which had me laughing hard at the topics, comebacks and quips batted between sisters Wendy and Regan when they are together in a scene, for example. Janet’s secretary Elizabeth deserves special mention for her sassy commentary aimed at many of the characters, including her straitlaced boss. The sex scenes between Janet and Wendy are steamy but devoid of any emotion beyond lust that was sometimes one-sided; they read as transactional more than intimate. I didn’t feel that there was any warmth or actual romance between these two women and questioned their relationship when it wasn’t solely rooted in business dealings. As work colleagues, they have a wonderful rapport, but I wasn’t keen for them to be anything more than that. It’s the first time I’ve felt that way in reading lesbian fiction of any genre and it took me by surprise to be against the notion of romance or a similar kind of relationship between characters. There are many pop culture references that may date the book for anyone reading it several years in the future (at least one repeated celebrity reference may be unwelcome to read for some even now). For me it’s a drawback to have to stop the flow of reading in order to look up a celebrity name or modern slang term that is not universally known or used; it leaves me with the sense the book is directed towards younger adults who use these terms and know these names as a matter of course, or people who around them enough to know the lingo, so to speak. I felt like this book was an attempted fusion of two different story ideas spliced together but with the stitches left visible rather than a seamless combination. The nature of the ‘romance’ did not fit well with the rest of the story and took from my enjoyment of the book as a whole. Also there were twists in the story that came out of left field, tossed out into the story as convenient to the plot rather than anything alluded to beforehand. As for the publisher’s synopsis calling this a rom-com, I disagree with that label for this book; there was comedy but not what I could consider romance. The juvenile and obsessive nature of Wendy’s character and other elements of the story do not, in my opinion, fit the term rom-com either. I’d like to read more of Georgette Kaplan’s stories to see if these elements are common in her other works or if it’s the stylistic choices in this particular book that do not appeal to me. Her talent as a writer is not in question at all; if it were I would have no interest in reading anything else by this author.
