Author: Lee Winter


This funny opposites-attract lesbian romance digs up the awkward truth about what really matters in life.


Ambitious ice queen and corporate lawyer Felicity Simmons has spent her life focused on one thing: scuttling up the career ladder. She’s achingly close to taking charge of a media empire for her boss when she’s sent to investigate a South Bronx charity that helps homeless people’s pets.

Has the charity made off with her boss’s generous donation? And who on earth is that gorgeous soft-butch veterinarian who looks as if she could toss a Shetland pony over one shoulder? Not that Felicity has any interest in some opinionated Amazon or her adorable fleabag of a dog.

Felicity is quite sure she will not be distracted, thank you very much. She has a minor mystery to solve, a mentor to impress, and her life’s dream to fulfil. Even if a distraction might be exactly what she needs.


The Awkward Truth takes place during the last half of Lee Winter’s The Brutal Truth but can easily be read as a standalone story.

    Felicity is very smart, beautiful, soon to be boss of Bartell Corp and awkward. When she has to go and investigate the dissapearing of a donation from her boss to a charity, she thought that should be easy, right? But she didn‘t count on a very dedicated vet, a cute dog and her betraying feelings. This is a funny book, sometimes I wanted to slap some sence into Felicity, but all good comes in the end. If you liked The Brutal Truth you‘ll sure like this one, too.

    Love the book. As usual Lee Winter didn’t disappoint with her new book. I was surprised by this lovely story because it was not what I was expecting. I thought it would be something more about though business world so it was a wonderful surprise. She makes us aware of a very difficult world but without an overly dramatic approach.
    I highly recommend this book. Probably the best one so far of this author. Great job! Looking forward for the next one!

    I do love a good ice queen on the precipice of shattering! Lee Winter is the ultimate author of the ice queen trope and I love reading her books. Once again she has put together a fantastic book, great characters immersed in an interesting storyline that kept me turning the pages. Can’t wait for the next book! Free arc for an honest review.

    The first book I ever read by Lee Winter was The Brutal Truth. I fell in love with her writing because of that novel. After that, I read every book and short story I could find of hers, and adored each & every tale. My favorites list is filled with her stories and now has a new addition with the latest novel by Ms. Winter, The Awkward Truth.

    This is a “sidequel” of sorts (a term coined by Shannon Luchies for the author) since the books are set in the same universe and the same time period. With The Awkward Truth, we get to read the story of Felicity Simmons. Felicity is driven to be the best at her job, and to make it to the top of her field. She went from being the Chief of Staff at Bartell Corp to deputy COO for the company. Now she is about to become acting COO…the very top and most powerful position she can achieve in the company. Then the owner, Elena Bartell sends her out to investigate a charity that helps homeless people’s pets. There she meets veterinarian Dr. Sandy Cooper. Cooper is the total opposite to Felicity. Cooper is a soft-butch Amazon-sized vet with a heart of gold and a love for all animals. Felicity is a prim-and-proper ice-queen businesswoman, laser focused on her career. They seem to have nothing in common…except that chemistry that seems to grow each time they meet.

    This is the perfect opposites attract, ice-queen romance with characters (both human and animal) you can’t help but love, discussions of serious real life issues, and a minor mystery that is well written into the story. The tale is heartwarming, heartbreaking, hilarious, sarcastic, and romantic. It has everything you expect from a Lee Winter novel, and more.

    You can read The Awkward Truth as a standalone novel if you wish, but I’m absolutely sure that once you do, you will want to read The Brutal Truth as well so you might as well get them both. They have my highest recommendation.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
