Book two in The Scissor Link Series

Author: Georgette Kaplan

Description

In college, Elizabeth Smile shared a magical tryst with her roommate, Michelle Harlow. She had no idea the night would leave Elizabeth pining after her for the next ten years. Now Michelle is back with a strange offer: Will she pretend to be Michelle’s lesbian lover to beat Michelle’s cheating husband?

Of course, it’s a terrible idea. And it would mean leaving the New York nightlife behind and spending Christmas with Michelle’s family in Ohio – an overly accepting father, a pill-popping brother, and a suspicious sister who seems to have her own agenda with Elizabeth. Worst of all, it’ll mean facing up to some old feelings she’d rather not revisit. But, really, she can handle all that. How hard can it be?

A twisty lesbian romance about getting more than we bargain for.

    *I was given a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair review

    I dropped my rating from five to a four after thinking about my lack of enjoyment of the middle of the book (visit to Michelle’s family) and the character of Michelle herself. The quality of much of the early conversation (and much later) stayed with me and impressed.

    I knew a girl once for whom I would have done anything and when I was with her I never knew I could be so happy. Then it ended like it was nothing – much like Elizabeth’s affair with Michelle in College. I could easily empathize with Elizabeth’s feelings, and to her holding on to this idolized memory of a girl, Michelle and being overwhelmed even ten years later when Michelle turns up and proposes a deal for them to be in a sham relationship for financial reasons. It wouldn’t be about the money offered for Elizabeth to take part in this chicanery but more a second chance in her mind.

    I found this book to be very well written with a lot of clever dialogue and inner thoughts. For a while, it seemed every sentence had been gone over and polished – quick, imaginative sentences. I must be the correct age to understand all of the cultural references with Elizabeth and her friends and found their conversations humorous. The story proceeds to the meeting of the bogus couple with Michelle’s family. Here the story falters as Michelle mostly disappears, there are too many other bizarre characters, tangents, and the week’s visit feels like a month. Michelle is quite unlikeable henceforth and Elizabeth must confront this “one that got away” with new light and understanding. To say more about this visit would invite spoilers so… enough said.

    ***free ARC
    ok, maybe I‘m too old or it‘s just that I‘m not american, but I just couldn‘t get alot of the meanings of the dialogues. Therefore I found it a little bit strange. The story of Michelle and Elizabeth is becoming a little bit weird while they‘re with Michelles family.
