Arielle’s Review Notes
Book Format & Source: I received a complimentary digital ARC. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. Any editing errors noticed are assumed corrected prior to the final published copy release.
Review & Thoughts:
- This wasn’t the first lgbtq+ book I’ve read but it certainly is the first non-binary romance. It was different than what I’ve read before and it was good. Super steamy warning! Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I’m a big fan of cooking reality shows and loved that aspect of the story. I enjoyed the dual perspective from London’s and Dahila’s characters.
- I enjoyed the author’s writing and I love reading books that offer perspective and representation. It’s so important for people to feel represented and to see part of themselves in the characters they read about or have access to read about. This story deeply touches on an important topic of being seen and accepting people for who they are as a person and how they want to be seen. It was so crazy to me that someone that has had the strength and confidence to tell their families that they are non-binary to have such pushback and disbelief in their identity. So incredibly sad.
- I liked that the book touches on the idea that social media is a wonderful resource despite it’s downsides. Social media is where London was able to discover their non-binary nature and gave them a community in which to be themselves.
- Great example of non-binary language being used properly.
- Topics: non-binary and queer representation, mental health, divorce
- Dahila Woodson might have been shit at marriage, but she could dice an onion like a goddamn professional.
Recommend for: fans of lgbtq+ non-binary, steamy romance, cooking shows
