No Strings Attached (Pink Bean Series Book 1) - Harper Bliss
I really thought this was interesting. I don't read a ton of Lesbian fiction. I just don't come across a lot of it, but I really enjoyed this one. We have a non-transitional heroine in the fact that the she's 44, recently divorced with two kids, and just realizing (or should I say acknowledging) that she's attracted to women.
She meets a woman who, despite a less than stellar first impression, is someone she's attracted to. This woman, Robin, tells our heroine, Micky, that she's looking for a no strings attached affair and Micky is willing to go along with that. But things get more complicated that either one of them bargained for.
Even though we have a lot of differences, I found Micky to be really relatable. I was rooting for her. It could not have been easy to come out at her age and tell her family that she had partly been living a lie. Robin's character grew on me. I didn't much like her in the beginning but by then end, I thought that she was the perfect partner for Micky.
The book centers on a coffee shop called the Pink Bean, and I loved those secondary characters that came along with it: Amber, Micky's best friend; Josephine, the young barista; and Cheryl and Kristin the couple who owns the Pink Bean. They along with Micky's family really helped round out the story.
Overall, I like the book. It was sweet, hot, and memorable. I definitely will continue on with the series. I was able to get this one on audio through my library and the phenomenal Angela Dawe was narrating so that was an extra special treat.
