Lovestruck: A good light read for someone curious about f/f romance.

by KT Grant

CEO hotel mogul Barbara Jennings has three months to decide whether to close her Manhattan hotel or cut costs by firing some of her employees. She meets her much-younger employee, Jennifer Caffey and is instantly smitten. Now Barbara has another mission, and that is to seduce the innocent Jenny.

Jenny is also attracted to the powerful and beautiful Barbara, but has never really had a steamy love affair with another woman. Unwittingly, she allows herself to be swept away by her passion for this older woman who may ruin her life.
My review guidelines can be found HERE.

  • Looks a little paranormal, but love can feel that way.

  • F/F

  • If you lurk around my blog much at all, you might have noticed a distinct male on male trend. Not to say I don't like groups, or BDSM, or sweet vanilla. But this is my first girl on girl romance.

  • Light, fast and skimming just the surface.

  • Sexual tension felt forced and underdeveloped.

  • May/December Cougar story, and this cougar is bossy and arrogant. A turn off for me.

  • Barbara rubs me the wrong way and Jenny seems to be a bit of a pushover.

  • Secondary characters give a sampling of sexualities; separated hetero woman, gay male room mate.

  • "Grinded" showed up at least twice and stopped me cold in the middle of reading. Please note, I do NOT claim any grammatical superiority.

  • This story just didn't click for me, emotional transitions were disjointed and the language lacked a smooth flow.

  • While debating on DNF status, Mike got a little secretive and sucked me in for the rest of the ride. But that never followed through. I did finish, but reluctantly.

I received this book through a contest on Carolyn Craine's Website.
I like her. Go visit her. Please!

Sweet daydreams...


I found Barabara a bit much too. I wondered if it's that innate prejudice against women who act like men in the boardroom. But then I don't care much for male characters like that either. It was my first f/f story as well, while not terrible, it didn't convert me from m/m. ;-)

I'm thinking I'll stick with the sweet m/m koolaid. :)

Chris makes me giggle!!!!!!

But I promise I have something for your taste, lol! **evil winks**
Hugs honey! Hope you had a great night!

Mmmmm, grape koolaid.

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
