At twenty-four, Mallory Grant is still struggling with adulthood. She can’t seem to make it in to work on time and deals better with her Tumblr friend on the other side of the world than a face-to-face with a real live human. But when her boss threatens to fire her as a rental agent, Mallory has to buckle down with her new client or end up jobless.

I have an atrocious track record with F/F romance, but I keep trying to find winners. Who knew that the key to my lesfic heart was a generous dose of humor?

Push Me Pull Me is the first book from newbie Amanda Rhodes, but I already know I'll read anything that she writes. Any author that can start off this strong and make me not want to stop reading is an author I have to watch.

I enjoyed mostly everything about this story, but I'm not sure all readers will. It's really funny in a way that I pers
Okay, after finishing Push Me Pull Me I have to make a bow to author Amanda Rhodes. Not only did she have me thoroughly entertained, she was also able to forge a strong connection between her 2 main characters and the reader… and all of that under 60 pages.

I think it’s safe to say you will become Mallory and you will share the fascination she has for Corinne. Corinne who basically is a lesbian’s wet dream, the ultimate package of drop-dead gorgeous, mysterious, with a sexy French accent, well of
This is a great humorous, erotic short that has more character depth than I expected it to. Mallory is young woman who works as a letting agent and doesn’t really love her job but doesn’t necessarily hate it either. She’s shy, prefers her online friends to the people around her and struggles with her self-esteem. Then she meets Corrine, a sophisticated woman in her thirties who wants to see one of her company’s listed properties.

Written in first person, Mallory’s thoughts and actions are often

Mallory Grant is struggling with her life. Her job as a leasing agent for a condo company pays the bills but doesn't make her happy and her social life is nonexistent.

If only she could gather the courage to take things to the next level...

Very good

This is a short and fun read about a rather insecure butch, Mallory, working in a real estate firm, who meets a client, Corinne, that goes from busines to flirt to Mallory's amazement, since Corinne is a gorgeous woman and apparently out of Mallory's league. It's an erotic short, because Corinne offers Mallory to fulfill some fantasies to allow her to overcome her insecurities. But the story maybe losts the point while extending in exces about the inner debating of Mallory, it's a short, there i ...more

This was a good novella and a good first release by Amanda Rhodes. In this erotic short, Malory, a leasing agent with self esteem issues, meets Corinne when they go to view a condo that Corinne is interested in purchasing. Sparks fly and naughty things happen.

For such a short read, Rhodes did a great job of giving Malory some depth. As this is written in first person from her perspective, we get the pleasure of her internal thoughts pertaining to her self esteem issues. This shouldn’t be fun, bu
This was a fascinating short story told from the hilarious POV of Mallory, a rental agent who meets Corinne, her stunning new client and quickly becomes enamored with her.

Even though the story is often times funny, it felt very real because both main characters consider themselves flawed. Mallory struggles with low self esteem, body image issues and overall general awkwardness. Corinne on the other hand is very direct and forward which she knows can cause others, like Mallory, to becomes uncomfo

It’s easy to fall in love with dorky Mallory and sexy Corinne in this short story, but the length ultimately hurts it in the end. These characters are great, so I wish we got an actual story with them!

Mallory is a likable main character because she’s…well, she’s us. She’s not your typical roma

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

I don’t read much F/F, but this one definitely caught my interest. And Rhodes has a poetic, smooth style that really kept the story flowing. I enjoyed both characters so much, and this erotic short story definitely has sweet undertones.

Mallory is the kind of character I love to read, and in Rhodes’ hands, she came off as quirky and endearing. Yes, she was also kind of a hot mess. But she was fully aware of her own insecurities. Didn’t mean she knew how to get past

This is a fun, short, erotic story. I can’t say it’s the best I’ve ever read but it’s fun, amusing and has few very witty, humorous moments. It’s a wonderful read for an afternoon, with a cup of tea and biscuits.

Mallory is not the best at life. She’s frequently late to work and struggles with face-to-face interaction, preferring to spend her time online. These are significant problems for a rental agent.

With her boss running out of patience, Mallory has to do everything she can to impress her latest client – the beautiful, sophisticated Corinne. As she summons previously-untouched reserves of professionalism, Mallory begins to suspect that a beautiful rental property is not the only thing Corinne has he
Lisa The Novel Approach
At 20,000 words this isn’t a bad novelette to pick up but having an awareness of what it is and isn’t can help prevent you from getting angry or disappointed. At 20,000 words there’s limited character and plot development; there’s some time spent on getting to know Mallory—she’s not the world’s best employee and has elements of daydreaming. Oh! Almost forgot, she has a Tumblr. She’s twenty-four, but that doesn’t provide enough of an excuse to dampen my own middle-aged person rage at a character’ ...more

A short, sensual and fun book.

When I started reading the book I could not remember the synopsis and at first, I was a little confused about Mallory. I did not know if I she was a woman or a man because the name seemed unisex too me. I also do not know if it was for lack of attention in some reference to the fact that she is a woman, but I only know that I loved not knowing the gender of the main character at first. Seriously, it seemed that it elevated the book to a level where they are "people

DNF @ 30%

With a romance novel this short, I thought I would have no problems reading it through. The problems started practically from the beginning. The main character annoys me -- honestly this is kryponite. It felt like the author was trying to make her seem relateable, but there is no way I would be 45 minutes late to work and still waiting in a drive-thru to get my coffee. I lost all respec

An honest review thanks to NetGalley. I connected with Mallory right from the start. It was refreshing to see an insecure, socially awkward, and bodily conscious main character. I was instantly hooked into the book after the first couple of pages with Mallory. This could have easily been given five, but it was too short! I felt as if I was given a teaser of an amazing book and then it was over. I didn't realize when I started that it was a novella so I was shocked when I got to the end. The fact ...more

This was amazing! I have no idea how the author managed to pack so much in so few pages but this book had me laughing, smiling, blushing, and I think I felt my body temperature go up a few times. I hate how this was so short!!! I want to know what happens after that... very intense last scene!!!!

Nice, short read for in-between but I couldn't connect with either of the MC's. (Then again it's only 20k long, which means there is not a lot of time to introduce the characters or develope a connection between them.)

A very good book, well written, humorous at times, hot, I would have liked more and especially know the after. The author of whom she is the first undoubtedly knew, express the links between the two characters. Everything is great. I am now waiting for another book ...
3.5 stars. Enjoyable novella with a quirky heroine - I could so relate to Mallory editing her own inner monologue. Good dialogue and had a nice balance of depth and humor.

This was a fun little erotica. The main character is an insecure real estate agent who meets her beautiful new client. It was a fun read and i really liked the story. I would have liked this to be longer but it is a concise snap shot story.

No substantive spoilers.

Honestly, I don't think that I have ever been let down by a book as bad as this one. I have read FanFiction written by under-21 year olds that was better. Even as a smut book, this author leaves MUCH to be desired. I don't know what this author thinks a plot is or how to develop one, but I would highly recommend going back to secondary school to re-learn grammar.

Has this author spent any time in the queer community? Did she simply decide to make a Tumblr caricature into
