This book definately has its problems. Although the author tries to be inclusive and write about lesbian relationships, she reveals her ignorance and gives the impression that she is only writing to straight women who might want to know more about lesbians, rather than actual lesbian readers.

Aside from that, I feel this terrain is always a bit rocky. It explores romance addiction, sex addiction, and codependancy. Important themes for sure, but they always skirt the edges of victim blamming when it comes to abusive relationships. Still, this book takes a frank look at the problems that result when a society places it's emphasis on only one type of relationship- romantic partnership.
