How far would you go to hide who you really are inside? And what do you do when you find the one person from whom hiding your true self isn't an option?
Glamorous movie star Dara Thomas has it all - an Oscar nomination, dozens of magazine covers proclaiming her the sexiest woman alive, and people of both sexes clamoring for her attention. She also has a carefully guarded secret life.
As Constance Darrow, Dara writes Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction, an outlet that allows her to be so much more than just a pretty face. Rebecca Minton is a professor of American Literature in love with the work of the mysterious, reclusive author Constance Darrow, with whom she strikes up a correspondence. A chance phrase in a letter leads her to a startling conclusion about the author. What happens next will change the course of both of their lives forever.

The wisdom is reaching far beyond what we see. Delight in the journey
It's really good. There are many of the same old lame romance, lesbian, and lesbian romance stand-byes here; fortunately they're is also a great deal of inspired writing and two pretty damn good lead characters. I liked the unique manner the author used to get the characters together, I liked the redemption of Dara's mother and Rene Maupin, and the lack of a "heavy" in the narrative. Dara's friend Carolyn is another well written character; in fact this genre seems to run to excellent characters and weak, overly contrived plots with occasionally ridiculous plot twists.
Oftentimes this is done in service to a story that contains too much conflict for people who are presented just swimming with positive traits. If you're able to ignore the more ridiculous aspects pf plot and human reaction, this is an excellent read.
i really enjoyed the book overall . it just seem a little bit rushed in the end. it could have been drawn out a little long to give Tara's revelations more depth and an epilogue who have been great part to put Jessica giving Tara the ring.
Rebecca made me want to slap her from the beginning . oh the crying and sniveling , good lord. Teribbly tired and cliche writing, trite. Made me roll my eyes, MADE me!!
I have enjoyed listening to this book several times. Thank you for a book about women who are smart and successful but still can be insecure, vulnerable and cry. This feels real. Emily please record many books about lesbians. I love the way you can move from comical to crying so seamlessly. Cheers.
It is another story about two gorgeous, talented, monied, implausible women doing what they do. It is a lesbian Harlequin Romance, and if that is what you are looking for - you got it here, but literature it ain't.
Tell us about yourself!
This was an enjoyable story about learning to trust another after being hurt in past relationships. There is a part of the story that was a little awkward regarding being a medium... Overall a good romance story.
the writing... too bland and simple, sometimes just plain childish.
something with substance
not so sure about that
it would take more that editing one scene, maybe an entire re-write
"No betrayal required"
The characters are well rounded and we get insight into their - sometimes - parallel thought processes.
It's so good to see the decisions some of us face written about in a calm and practical manner no melodrama about coming out just the gradual acceptance of our real selves.
I will be looking for more books by Lynn Ames
"Totally improbable,very predictable,but enjoyable"
Just as a good book can be ruined by poor narration, a poor story can be saved by a good one-Emily Beresford does just that. Narrated well.
An orginsl story. This isn't the best audio book, but it's not the worst. (Not had as awful as Radclyffe who should retire! and let the better authors rise) Its original. Don't expect much from this book and you won't be disappointed, It's a lightweight book you'll easily get through it and enjoy it.
Trashy fiction at its clichèd worst! Don't torment yourself with starting this book and thinking it will get better. I battled through it whilst on holiday - and it didn't.
Not sure if this is typical lesbian fiction, but the storyline is minimal, the characters are less than developed and the absurd 'happily ever after just one date' was always on the cards. Dreadful. (Although the narrator gave it a good shot!)
