Walker gave a sweet wave of encouragement. It would have been so amazingly fu I feel like I've been eating too many oysters aka Geogia Beers book and this one is tipping me over. It is written in first person, a style I often have problems with, but it really worked for this main character, Avery. I could relate to Avery's introverted, not liking or relating to children ways and she made for a unique protagonist. But life can be full of surprises. Plus the teasing was back. But her novels are never formulaic.
A demanding executive and stickler for punctuality, Kade throws herself into work to avoid hurting anyone, convinced she only causes pain to those she loves. I'm not sure how she does it, but she always makes up characters I really find myself caring about. How people have to be smart in receiving any information nowadays? Avery doubts Elena plays for her team and has no particular designs on her. Plenty of character-driven plot, with a nice bit of tension between three characters that isn't overdone though it is somewhat predictable. On the one hand there is Gretchen, tough sales manager in a new job and awarded for her successes of the past, and on the other hand there is Kylie, long-time employee of Gretchen's new company and her personal assistant.

A big thank you to one of my friend on goodreads for recommending it. Or maybe she just doesn't want to like them. We'll see how my mood swings. The story is told through Avery's point of view and, Beers includes so much of her thoughts down to the minor details, it felt like it was in my own inner stream of consciousness which is a style that's unusual to capture and still be interesting. Beers' style is distinct in the lesfic world, and I'm already looking forward to her next one. She's real and honest and unaffected.
Doch dann wird ihr Bruder im Hinterhof eines Londoner Pubs von einem Unbekannten enthauptet. Once I accepted that just because the narration was different than I was used to, it didn't mean it was bad. Lindsay has tons of ideas that she's been dying to put into action, and this is her big chance to increase the success of the business and prove she's more than ready to run things solo. Dreamy Autumn Primm was never supposed to be part of that bargain. The memories of her baking and the smells throughout the house. This book was mainly a light read without villains or any real antagonists.
I feel green and that's not an ecological reference. Beers is a good writer, with developed characters, good description, strong erotic scenes. I just could not get interested in them'at all. In many ways I can relate to Avery. But it's a fun ride all the same. They do make me curious about what the heck went on behind the scenes. Avery has never wanted children and used that as an excuse to split with her ex-girlfriend.
Depending on how long they she has been around the ex is a parent figure for better or worse. And, to be honest, I expect some heat from the sex scenes. A good friend of Avery's has knee surgery and asks her to take over as coach for a kids' baseball team. This was not a first novel of Beers and I felt it was almost the same thing with different names and location. I re-read books quite a l 28 Feb 2011 Avery King is a thirty-something graphic designer, happily single, with a strong crush on Elena Walker, manager of her bank branch.
The person behind you in line at the bank? Things I look forward to: baking goodies and then sharing them; spending time with my grandmother; reading anything I can get my hands on; enjoying dinner with my friends; a quiet evening and a glass of wine; hiking new trails and exploring nature with Steve. I only mention this to go into the source of my true ire. Hat er mit Junkfood seine Gesundheit ruiniert? No coming out stories necessary. If Georgia ever wants to write really compelling literary fiction, I've no doubt she could pull it off. Although I enjoyed the romance, I skimmed the sex scenes. Beers' love + adoration towards the furry canines and incorporates it into her stories. This book was one of the books I had on my list a long time ago when I first started looking for books with queer characters, and for whatever reason, it never made it to the list of books I actually ended up reading.
Thus, I find the characters to be two-dimensional and character development is nearly non-existent. I requested this title from my local library and it's been several weeks since I returned it, so I'll do my best to get the details right. While trying to decide what to do with her life next and at the urging of her uncle, Melanie heads to Rochester, New York, to stay temporarily with her cousin Samantha. It was wrong of her to turn the lights off and kiss Mick, pretending she was somebody else. I picked up the book just wanting a lesbain story and I really feel like I got a basic non original story. Fortunately, I never worry about that with a Beers novel.
Therefor my 3 star rating is only temporarily. The main storyline is fairly good but this book spent too much time on the side stories that are irrelevant to the romance and too little time on the build up to the relationship. The thought that these people could inhabit the same world isn't a strange one - the setting and the circumstances make sense. We're shown Mick's perspective later on and she doesn't mention guilt, remorse, or horror about harassing her friend. When Jennifer Spencer meets an incognito Kade at a conference, sparks fly. And it certainly was entertaining and an interesting story. I'm a 34-year-old single lesbian and my heart belongs to my Starting From Scratch - Kindle edition by Georgia Beers.
