Read full description of the books:
I must seem like a glutton for punishment. Complaining about lesfic and then diving right back in. But I still have a couple of books lying around and a couple more ordered and I will read them.
And you know what? I *liked* this one. It's different enough from the usual formula to not be boring, has interesting characters and interesting issues it deals with and actually *deals* with them. It is also well written, that usually helps ;)
I have to admit I was torn beforehand about the issue, identity in regard to femme/butch, but it worked well. The story starts with a bunch of friends, most of them femme and a butch partner of one of them (even though, and that kind of grated me, the partner seems de-butched by her partner in regard to appearance), go on a cruise along with a friend of the couple who is also butch. There are anti-butch comments by the fashionistas to set the scene, but for the most part the lovely butch counters them and is above such petty things. Even though I don't get the anti-butch attitude at all, it was portrayed in a way that made sense for the story and I guess that kind of attitude is out there. I had to think of a Gerri Hill novel in which a bunch of closeted power dykes rally against one of her own when she falls for a butch cop... there were no levels there, just black and white and I couldn't find my way into the story for lack of believability... in this one, the different attitudes are explored (within the scope of a romance novel, don't expect anything too heavy or something that will make you think, mind you), a bunch of other 'complications' are thrown in the mix.
Personally I liked that the eventual pairing (and yes, you know right from the start) is believable and that the ending does not seem rushed. So I was a happy camper today, still determined to find a lesfic world though that is not centered on romance. I've already gotten a few suggestions of where to look and a few names I hadn't come across yet. Always looking for more if you have them.
What I did want to add is that this book was produced with a shabby printing job. The print is smudgy, as if the page was moving up and down while it was printed on and a lot of lines on left pages are missing the last letter, sometimes making the word guesswork. Very annoying. It's not the first time I've complained about a Bella print job, and I've complained to them as well, but they seem to be happy with the results.
