Publisher's Summary

Ria Martinez has found a decent job within a lingerie store called Lilacs and Vanilla. The hours are great, the customers aren't a pain, her coworkers are fun, and the atmosphere is nice. She also has her eyes on her boss, Susannah Halprin. She's intrigued by Susannah's mysterious behavior and wants to know her. However, Susannah keeps her distance which makes Ria more and more interested.

Susannah, in the meantime, is still reeling over a break up that made her lose faith in love. She knows Ria is noticing her. She feels something as well. However, she can't really express how she feels in return. Can Ria reach out to her and make her feel loved again? It seems like a difficult task, but never underestimate the power of love.

Fluffly, sexy f/f with WOC leads

If you could sum up Lilacs and Vanilla in three words, what would they be?

a brown skinned latinx lesbian pinning for her African-American boss

Any additional comments?

I overall liked the rep of the book.

Everything moved way too fast

I received this book for free to give an unbiased review.
The pace went way too fast. To have all of those emotions and concerns for someone with little to no actions explaining why you feel so strongly makes no sense. No flirting or intense conversations but somehow you're in love?? Not lust but love?? I know people move fast nowadays but the way all of these things happened was unbelievable.

The narrator was okay but not a good fit for this story.
