Kyle Blake likes plans. So far, they’re pretty simple: Finish her senior year of high school, head off to a good college, find a cute boyfriend, graduate, get a good job, get married, the whole heterosexual shebang. Nothing is going to stand in the way of that plan. Not even Stella Lewis.

Stella Lewis also has a plan: Finish her senior year as cheer captain, go to college,

This is the cutest and fluffiest popular-girl-falls-in-love-with-nerd-girl thing I’ve ever read or ever will read.
➽Stella – a popular girl who puts on bitch act and my favorite character
➽Kyle – a glasses-wearing cute nerd who I also love

The thing that stood out to me about this book, in hindsight, was probably the lack of coming out angst. I feel like a lot of stories about queer girls like this might’ve been full-out angst over how to come out, and that can be really well done, don’t get me wro
There are so many elements wrong with this book that I just didn't enjoy it.

The basic premise is that two seniors in high school, a nerd and a cheerleader, fall for each other and that makes them really happy. One has known she's lesbian all along. For the other, it's a surprise.

On the positive, I will say that this is a happy, low drama, where everything goes right book. Also, Kyle, the nerd character, has a physical disability and the two best friends depicted have ethnic diversity. I'm glad

*3.5/5 stars

This is the kind of tooth-rotting lesbian fluff that I have been asking for. Sometimes it is a bit silly and over the top, but it was such an easy read and Kyle and Stella are so cute I frequently felt myself grinning while reading this one. (I'll probably write a longer review later but I just had to get out at least these feelings right now).
“I think I just assumed everyone looked at girls that way. Because girls are beautiful and pretty and why wouldn’t you want them? Took me a little while to realize that wasn’t the case.”

So so so so cute and my first finished #sapphicathon read!! This is a quick and super adorable romance between two high school seniors: a cocky cheerleader, Stella, and a nerdy girl, Kyle. While a bit cliché at times, I really enjoyed the way their rivalry developed slowly into friendship and a deeper emotion
Style is a contemporary f/f romance following two lesbians during their last year of high school. It's 100% gay fluff and full of clichés, but that was exactly what I was looking for, and it didn't feel like a story I had already read anyway. Not only because it's f/f and there aren't as many f/f books as there should be, but exactly because it's both gay and as fluffy as it can get - and we almost never have that.

Style is a coming out novel.
That's a genre I almost never reach for, it's always s

This book was so cute, nerdy and funny. I liked both Stella and Kyle and was rooting so bad for them from the very beginning. The story got too silly and a bit cringey at times but I honestly didn't mind cause I was up for some f/f fluff anyway. *heart eyes* I also loved their families and the dynamics between them - I live for that stuff. The only problem I had was that I sometimes had to go back to check whose POV I was reading because both Kyle and Stella had extremely similar voices but that

I'm torn because on the one hand I know I definitely would've given up on it if it weren't f/f, (for me, the writing was painfully simplistic and two dimensional) but on the other I'm glad such a light and happy lesbian romance exists. ...more

This is a story I’ve heard time and time again. In fact the troupe is pretty common, a nerd and someone popular fall for each other. Despite this fact, I still quite enjoyed Style for its simplicity. At its core it’s a coming of age story, but done right. No one is pushed to come out, many people are accepting, and the girls are discovering the wonders of being in love. It’s practically sickeningly sweet.

It reminded me of my own feelings towards my first crush. When you’re that young, ev

This is a very sweet and light YA contemporary novel about two lesbians falling in love. The mood of the story is light and optimistic, Style is a good choice for pick-me-up story.
The book has dual perspective so we get meet both Stella, lesbian-in-a-closet cheerleader and secretly-lovely-person, and Kyle, cute ow-wow-I-guess-I'm-lesbian nerd and she has a disability. They meet and then we get to enjoy classic high school tropes done right. (+ uncharacteristically for YA explicit sex scenes, pr

“Style” presents a high-school coming-of-age story as the thrilling, frightening, and ultimately fantastic love story everyone wishes they had, or could have. It’s just delightful, and is narrated wonderfully by Sophie Daniels.

MCs Stella and Klye are both incredibly likable characters, and I was glad that their story was sweet rather than an adventure in teenage angst. Both are 18yo seniors, and are thrown together in AP English (hence the book title, “Style”, I guess). Stella has a well-deserve

I enjoyed this book better than i expected it. There was no drama or angst or anything like that. And it didnt bore me at all. Kyle and Stella are a cute couple. Stella knew she was gay but didnt want to out herself until college. Kyle thought she was straight until she had to do her AP English assignment with Stella and got to know her. And things started from there.

I feel like the book is really positive regarding to gay people. Everyone that close to both main characters kind of already knew

and this makes it one hundred books in two thousand and seventeen i'd like to dedicate this to my six month long slump and all my haters who said i would never make it in this industry if i deleted all my goodreads friends and stopped reading books WHO'S THE LOSER NOW

also this book okay PROS:
•in love
•lesbians in love
•happy ending for lesbians in love
•best friends & family who support them through & through

•there's no buildup & the tension is kinda forced
•it's enemies to lovers

Cute little book, full of teenage angst but nothing too deep. The MCs are relatable. I liked that one of them is disabled, and the way it fits in the story, and how two of the characters (that we know of) are not white, and that while they’re not main characters, they’re still very important. It’s a pretty drama-free novel, which doesn’t mean it skirts around sensitive issues, but the author has chosen to handle them in a way that doesn’t take away from the mostly shiny feel of the book.

This is a sweet and compulsively readable YA romance. Kyle and Stella are seemingly complete opposites, and they barely know each other before they’re paired up in AP English class. Stella has a compelling backstory, one that I can’t reveal without it being a major spoiler, but as a cheerleader, she wears a mask that keeps people from knowing who she really is to protect herself. Everyone thinks she’s cold hearted and stuck up, and she wants to keep it that way. The only person who manages to br ...more

Full review originally posted on my blog: Word Wonders

CW: Emetophobia, masturbation, on-page sex, mentions of self-harm.

This book was exactly what I needed when I needed it. I’ve had the ebook for a couple months now I think -since I read the Violet Hills novellas- waiting for the right moment to pick it up. Last week (at the time I’m writing this review) I was going through a rough time and couldn’t deal with any heavy books, no fantasy, no tough topics, no book that needs too many
So that was cute. Hell yes.
Was it a good story ? I'd say I read better books with a f/f relationship, but they probably weren't as cute as this one.

I liked Stella the most, she's a really strong person who takes shit from no one, and she's not afraid nor ashamed of who she is. She's unapologetic.
Kyle is more unsure, she thought she was straight her whole life until she started hanging out with Stella and realized that everything she thought was true about her was in fact a lie.

I am torn. On one hand, this was cliche and cringey, the characters weren't fleshed out enough (I could barely distinguish between the two POVs), the writing was bland - but on the other hand, it was a f/f romance. The story itself was just okay but I really appreciated the lesbian representation. ...more

Ok guys, so, I went into this book with low expectiations because >contemporary< (I'm not a big fan of them. I like them from time to time, but.. fantasy all the way.)
Anyway, the point is how absolutely positive this book is. I breathed fresh air throughout the whole book, like fucking finally! This, however, doesn't mean that problems are not addressed to: it's a contemporary, fully immersed in our still problematic world, so of course the big issue of homophobia is f

This is a book for girls, about girls loving girls, written by a girl. And yet, the word 'bitch' is being thrown around every two sentences (I'm not exaggerating), said by girls to describe other girls, even by one of the MCs in reference to her future love interest. In which world is this considered okay?

Also, the writing is just plain bad. The premise is ridiculous (I'm starting to notice this girl bc she's so pretty even tho she's a BITCH, no reason for it other than my creator just felt lik

I was so disappointed. I was expecting more from this, the idea was nice and cute and had potential but it lack to deliver.
The writing was kind of flat and there were so many times were I had to check who was supposed to be narrating because both characters had the same voice and that annoyed me a little.
I hated how many times they said baby and babe and others things that made me roll my eyes so much. Plus, when they came out to their friends and family, all of them just happen to already know

It was pretty mediocre in terms of books. Super enjoyable. Adorable romance. But, nothing that stood out to me. It was similar to most contemporaries where I cringed at the dialogue and needed a few tweaks. I did love Kyle and Stella though, with their own individual developments throughout the book.

The message behind this book is important as well and the authors note at the end shows how important important representation is.

Full review to come possibly.

People were right when they said Stella was like ice. An iceberg was a little more accurate. There was something below the surface that no one had seen before. I didn’t know what made me want to figure her out, but I did. I wanted it a lot.
3.5 stars rounded up. Kyle and Stella are in their senior year of high school. They have seen each other over the years but never really talked or anything like that, in fact, Kyle (and pretty much everyone in their school) doesn't think very nicely of Ste

I'm torn on my rating. I was sure to give this a 4 but then changed it because I want to thank the author for writing this book. I'm familiar with her works, especially Taylor and Hunter (My favorite mistake). I'm really surprised when I saw you wrote an F/F book. (Review not on this GR account) =p

The story is pretty much light and easy read, no major drama. So, if you're looking for some coming out with angsty stories line this is not for you.
Everyone is very supportive of Kyle and Stella, esp

so i was here for the gay fluff. because that was truly wonderful.
besides that it was really more of a mediocre book.

it’s all very much based on cliches. the characters (the nerd/the jock dynamic, one character being an “ice-cold bitch” so that no one can hurt her feelings), the story. and i mean these tropes can be done well, sure, but here it just felt very boring and overdone.

the writing style, too, was just not it. i can best describe i

3.5 Stars - Enjoyable ff/YA first love romance

Started on Audible but didn't get it finished before they shut down Audible Escape on 11/1, grrrr. I bought the book so I could finish reading it. It was $4.99. It it had been $9.99 I probably would not have bothered.

This was an enjoyable high school romance. Both girls are 18 but act younger. There is basically zero angst once they acknowledge they have feelings. Everyone excepts them; their parents, their friends - its all good.
