    Great read! A great opposites attract romance about a rich girl from a big city and a farm girl from a small town. Both women have left everything behind to start over in a new city. A business proposal causes a lot of frustrations but also has a lot of advances. The story is well put together, the characters are likable and the pace is a little bit slow but as the story progressed, it became better. Overall I really enjoyed it.

    2.8 stars This was an okay read. I bought this book because I liked the blurb and the story that was outlined there. The story itself was nice but I think the writing would benefit from better editing and should be tighter. Because of the expansive writing the beginning of this story dragged. I don’t think readers need to be told again and again how Christine’s family life was when she was young and how that impacted her life or how Taylor longs for a partner and family for instance. You’re told 2.8 stars This was an okay read. I bought this book because I liked the blurb and the story that was outlined there.

I don’t think readers need to be told again and again how Christine’s family life was when she was young and how that impacted her life or how Taylor longs for a partner and family for instance. You’re told about that several times at the beginning of the book but it comes back later on again. It’s as if the writer was stuck in the book but gets the story going again this way. That made the writing too repetitive. Where sometimes too many words were used about the same thing, at other times the jumps in the narrative were a little too abrupt or big and could have used a bit more text. What bothered me also is that Christine is supposed to be a professional working for a big company, but the description of Christine’s work and her company and what happens there is simplistic and doesn’t fit with the image of such professionals or venture companies. Take Michele, the VP of the company, she really comes over very amateurish. There were other parts though of the book that I enjoyed. The main characters were very nice and I liked how they communicated when it became clear to them that they were attracted to each other. I also liked Chloe and Taylor’s parents seemed great. Though I think that a little bit more attention to them would have added to the depth of the book and made it more attractive. So 2.8 stars which rounds up to 3 for Goodreads.

    A good competent story that kept me entertained but never pushed my emotional buttons into a 5* book. Nothing wrong with it, just shrug, fine.

    This was a good story. Taylor is down on her luck and trying to start a new life for her and her daughter. Christina is a high powered business woman. When Taylor brings a business proposal to Christina, Christina is not impressed. She is blunt and direct. When things eventually come to a place where the two women work together, they eventually warm up to each other and develop a slow friendship and relationship. I liked the pacing of this story. The ladies were opposites, and it was nice seeing This was a good story. Taylor is down on her luck and trying to start a new life for her and her daughter.

After Taylor presses Christine about the change of heart, she finds out the company is pushing her plans through because of a scandal that can bring the company down. As this story unravels, it leads to two people who have a connection and want to explore it but slowly. This winds up being a very sweet and comforting story with a great happy ever after ending.

    Our heroines come at things from completely different directions and this causes the expected clash. What follows is completely unexpected. This is a romance of the F/F sort.

Along the way we get a bit of steam and a very nice HEA. Overall, a highly enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more from this author. Highly recommended.

    This was a really good story. I have to say I don't read a lot of F/F romance but I definitely enjoyed it a lot. There was a bit of an enemies-to-lovers vibe, and the relationship progressed believably. Both women were interesting and fully developed characters, and they had a lot of chemistry.The romance was very sweet and the sex was hot. The story was interesting, the writing was very good and I will definitely check out more books by this author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksp This was a really good story.

    Sweet Story I really enjoyed this story! Both Christina and Taylor have big hearts and both deserve to find their HEA . One of the things I really liked is the way the author handled the intimate scenes. Just the right amount of descriptive sex. Great job!

Bumpy incidents aside Taylor's idea of a Pet Therapy business starts to become a reality and there's bonding between Christina and Chloe (Taylor's 6 yr old daughter) due to chicken-pox and arts and crafts. A visit to the farm, starry skies and peaceful nature plus an enormous workload at work leads Christina to question her career goals. Can these two women have a HEA coming from such different backgrounds? I had to find out and read from beginning to end without stopping.
