As an independent filmmaker, Katie Cherry is used to difficult shoots—but a band’s music video in a tiny lesbian bar is proving worse than most. Stress-busting, expectation-free sex with Zay, the calm, gorgeous bartender, seems just the ticket. But then she and Zay discover the band’s lead singer beaten into a coma in the bar bathroom. They need an alibi, but playing girlf ...more

K.J. Charles
A New Adult f/f romance. I liked the core romance--when the characters started communicating, they worked well and the scenes with just the two of them, sex and otherwise, were very engaging. A lot of NA themes in the plot and conflict which didn't work for me because I don't like YA/NA (too old and grumpy, get off my lawn). Clearly I should pay more attention. Very well handled arguments, particularly the issue with people not realising they have very different argument styles and thresholds.

*I received this book from NetGalley, and Riptide Publishing in return for a fair review.*

Book stars Katie Cherry, the angry director from Finding Your Feet, as an angry film-maker and Zay Fayed-Smith, bartender who is also a law student. Both are somewhere in their mid twenties (an indication occurred that Zay might be slightly older than the 24 year old Katie).

Book opens with Katie working as a director/camera operator at a bar filming an all queer punk band, while Zay works as a bartender the

3/5 - I really wanted to like this book more than I did.

Okay, lets just get something out there. I mostly read M/M romance. To anyone who actually knows me (IRL, I mean), this is pretty freaking ironic since I'm a ladies lady myself, ya feel? So whenever people find out that I read M/M romance (and a lot of it) they kind of laugh about it. And maybe that's why it's so hard for me to read F/F romance, I dunno. This book was so... ugh. I mean, I love Cass Lennox and I have enjoyed every book in th

I honestly don't know if I did not enjoy this book because of the harsh copyright page warning or because the story itself who is weak.

Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Katie is pissed. All she wants is for this evening to finally be over, or to go home with the cute bartender, but for now, she is still stuck with the drunk - and getting drunker - band that she is supposed to film for a music video. But as bad as the evening might seem, the next day somehow actually manages to get worse, despite a great night in between. And in between a crime investigation, bothersome e

Filmmaker Katie is stressed out making a music video for an all-female band. Too much drama and drug-taking from the musicians makes this particular job a bit of a nightmare, until she meets gorgeous bartender Zay. They hook-up for an amazing night together but don't expect to become each others alibi when the lead singer of the band is found badly beaten and in a coma next morning. Pretending to friends and family that they are in a relationship wasn't part of the plan either. But that is exact ...more

I am totally the wrong person for this book. I read it as a Riptide Advance Read and didn't realise that it was SO New Adult. I was hoping for a good lesbian romance but that's not what I felt I got.

I did not like either of the main characters, I thought they were totally self-absorbed, arrogant, and completely clued out about how to go about having any kind of relationship. And the inner dialogue. It was constant. CONSTANT. And irritating. I wish I had a dollar for every time one or the other

First off, Zay, one of the characters in this novel is Libyan but other than one incidence of racism it's not a big deal (I'm actually reluctant to mention it but I think it's important to mention it!) She also has quite fabulous hair, which do be honest is more of a factor in the novel than her background.

Zay meets Katie in a the bar where she works when Katie's shooting a music video for a local punk band. There's an instant connection between the two women but the fact that one of the band m
The Wrong Woman is an enjoyable contemporary romance. I recommend this for anyone looking for a feel-good romance with some suspense.

Zay and Katie are great characters with personality and depth. Their relationship is a bit angsty for my taste, but there’s good romantic suspense and some very steamy scenes.

The mystery subplot is engaging, and the conflict offers opportunities for good character growth for Zay and Katie.

This book works well as a standalone story. There is some crossover with char

I don't know why this series doesn't get more love. These books are light, well written New Adult, set in Toronto, feature lgbt characters that are adorable as hell, and all center around some sort of mystery.

That being said, this one was fine, but not as strong as the other I've read in the series (can't remember which, but art theft features heavily) which I loved. I just kinda felt like not enough happened in this one to raise the stakes and really have me engaged. Maybe it's because most of

Great characters, very charismatic.
Also, I loved the appearances of beloved characters of previous books. A couple of them were a bit forced, but still.
I'm so very into this writing style. It maintains the good vive and lightness that the first books had.
That being said, I did not enjoy all the jealousy drama at all (and there was A LOT of it). The story is engaging, but very generic. I certainly wouldn't be as generous with those stars if it wasn't for the lesbians. I regret nothing, because l

I don't read very many lesbian romances (despite reading almost exclusively LGBT romance) so it was good for a change.

(view spoiler) Not that that's a deal breaker automatically.

I would have given more stars of my connection to the characters had been deeper (it was so-so).

I rec'd a copy of this book from NetGally/Riptide Publishing in exchange for an honest review. First book I'm reading by Ms. Lennox. Characters Katie and Zay are the leads in this romance that is angst and drama filled. I'm sorry but I really couldn't appreciate the storyline as too many things seemed to be happening and I couldn't get into the style of writing. However, I will give the author another try in the future. 2.5 stars

I really enjoyed reading this! It was cute and light and just what I wanted. I love Zay and Katie. I do think the plot lagged a little bit and then was kind of rushed at the end like the author got caught up in the romance and forgot about the investigation part. But I still fully enjoyed the rest.

Pretty much a masterclass in why it's important for couples to learn each other's fighting style.

There was a lot that I liked about this book but ultimately I found it to be too much angst and not enough happy connection between the two main characters. They don't really talk or clear up their misunderstandings until near the very end of the book so they don't really spend much time together; their relationship doesn't progress at all through the book. As individuals their stories are interesting, but as a romance, this book doesn't work for me.

Cass Lennox is a permanent expat who has lived in more countries than she cares to admit to and suffers from a chronic case of wanderlust as a result. She started writing stories at the tender age of eleven, but would be the first to say that the early years are best left forgotten and unread. A great believer in happy endings, she arrived at queer romance via fantasy, science fiction, literary fi ...more
