Note: I would recommend that disabled readers be cautious in approaching this story (see review for details), and highly recommend that readers who are trauma survivors look at the content warnings. 

This is a riveting, intense novel that goes right for the throat. It is definitely not an easy read, and while it has a central romantic storyline and a fairly hopeful ending, and therefore is technically a romance, it didn't feel like a genre romance to me. Instead, it felt more like tran

I finished this book a little after 10pm the day after a 13 hour work day, after our weekly queer potluck and I have never ever felt more seen by a piece of literature. Reading a story written by a trans woman about two trans women falling in love is an experience I've never had before and every single aspect felt so true and real in the ways I've never been able to put into words, especially to cis people.

The complexities of coming out as trans within a long-term relationship were wonderfully explored, that struggle between still loving your wife—and her still loving you, to a degree—but sexuality getting in the way. - Matt

i loved this book. a lot of it felt honest to life. it deals with various forms of loss and grief. enveloping all that is a story of eros and agape. old bonds forming into something new. new love being born over tacos and nintendo and shared life experience.

this is a wonderful book. read it. ♡

I needed this after some very frustrating books in a row. Review coming soon IY"H; the book wasn't perfect, but it was refreshing, and I especially enjoyed the voice and the character interactions. Also that it was very much a trans novel, for a trans audience.

Content notice for a lot of violence, including murder, and attempted rape.

Source of the book: This is a bit convoluted... The author sent me an e-ARC, but I didn't manage to get around to reading it before release, so I just ordered
