Side Order Of Love is certainly okay and has likable enough characters, yet I can't quite give it four stars. There's something missing I can't put my finger on at this exact moment.

Still, there are some nice passages that jump out at me and have gone into my Kindle Highlights, more for the message than the writing:

-She couldn’t undo anything in her past now, but she could still make her own future. Or remake it into something different from the path she was on. (This attitude especially applies

A romance with high doses of drama and angst that lacked of passion, love and intensity (at least mutual).

It’s been a while since a read a romance that felt so unbalanced. It was almost painful to get thru this “love story” that for the most part of the book seemed to portray an unrequited love with characters that didn’t have many likable features.

The best moment they had was their first interaction which was interesting and engaging but after that, the development of their relationship along

I skipped pages with this one to me it just dragged on and I couldn't wait for it to end. I did like parts of the story but I really like was Aunt Connie reminds me of one of my relative.
This book was entertaining. Reading about all the food was probably the best part! The writing was not very good...
Fairly traditional romance but I really lost interest part of the way through when Torrie said that Grace wasn't worth fighting for. What kind of romance has such a statement. I had no real interest in seeing them together after that, which was a shame because I liked the character of Grace. And the epilogue was ridiculous.
Simply written, simple story line. Not sure what fictional world the author lives in where everyone is gay...

The whole plot felt predictable, like the author really wanted to stick to the Chick Lit format but with lesbians. Especially that ending, I just wanted to cringe. The story had no real depth.
I really liked "The Candidate" and some other of Tracey Richardson's novels but this, I'm sorry to say, was SO BORING from the beginning to the end!

I'm the author of several lesbian romance novels published by Bella Books, including the Lambda Literary Award finalists "Last Salute" and "No Rules of Engagement". I'm a voracious reader, even more so now that I've retired from a 27-year career as a daily newspaper journalist.
