Author: L.T. Smith


A battered woman has to learn to believe in love again to date the perfect woman in this heartwarming lesbian romance.

Beth Chambers’s life is no fairytale, even if she feels like a damsel in distress.

After four years in a destructive relationship, Beth has decided enough is enough and leaves her girlfriend, taking with her only her dog Dudley, her broken spirit, and a shattered view of life.

At her lowest point, she meets Amy Fletcher, a woman who has it all—and whom she believes would never want more than friendship.

But what Beth fails to realise is that there are definitely two sides to every story.  Could Amy Fletcher be Beth’s Princess Charming? Could her story end with a happily ever after?

    Very sweet and lovely
    This is the story of Beth as she learns to stand on her own two feet after leaving an emotionally abusive relationship. She and her little man Dudley, the terrier, meet Amy one chilly fall day. As their friendship continues to grow Beth relaxes about the old relationship with Sue and begins to have feelings for Amy. Would Amy hurt her by leaving or controlling Beth? Will Dudley finally get to bite Sue and is Amy even a lesbian??? Sound good? It is!

    I loved this drama! It was so funny (even the chapters were funny and sweet too) and real and gosh darn it, emotional too. The story is told by Beth. Its as if I was sitting by the fireside with her and she as she regaled me with her tale. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and develop into strong women as their relationship/not relationship continued all the while precious Dudley was in tow.

    I was privy to Beth’s musings and emotions as she bared her soul. I saw her insecurities, her courage, determination and her soft but strong side. I can so relate to her self doubts and reactions and how she was able to move forward. Turns out Amy was hiding a little something of her own…

    This tale touched on so many levels but all of them were handled with grace and courage. This is defiantly on my must read list. Thank you Ms. Smith.

    Once by L.T. Smith is about two women, Beth Chambers and Amy Fletcher. Beth is still recovering from an abusive relationship that she recently ended when she meets Amy with the help of her small dog Dudley. This meeting is the beginning of a sweet romance.

    The story is told in the first person narrative through the eyes of the main character Beth, and I have to admit the author did this in a very unique and different way. The story is written almost as though you are sitting down and having a conversation with Beth. She is telling you her story and also talking about how she is writing the tale. That was rather disconcerting to begin with. I wasn’t sure I liked it, but I kept reading, and I’m glad I did. I eventually got used to the conversational tone, and by the end of the book, I liked the style. It kind of made the whole tale more real in a sense. The only problem I had with the story is that it dragged a bit in the middle. There were quite a few times I wanted to grab Beth by the shoulders and shake some sense into her, but that actually is an example of me being involved in the story which is a good thing. I liked the story. Once is a sweet romance with well-developed characters, just the right amount of angst, and a unique style. And it also has Dudley, who would tell you that he is the cutest and the smartest character in the whole book. If Beth and Amy had only listened to him in the first place, they would have been much happier much sooner.

    Get the story. Once is cute. It is sweet and different in a good way.
    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
