Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of The Assistants comes another gutsy book about the importance of women taking the reins - this time, when it comes to love, sex, and self-acceptance.

"As timeless, warm, and funny as When Harry Met Sally." (Elisabeth Egan, Glamour)

"Perri's book is a real gift - tender, sexy as hell and laugh out loud funny." (Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney)

When it comes to Cassidy, Katie can't think straight. 

Katie Daniels, a 28-year-old Kentucky transplant with a strong set of traditional values, has just been dumped by her fiancé when she finds herself seated across a negotiating table from native New Yorker Cassidy Price, a sexy, self-assured woman wearing a man's suit. At first neither of them knows what to make of the other, but soon their undeniable connection will bring into question everything each of them thought they knew about sex and love.  

When Katie Met Cassidy is a romantic comedy about gender and sexuality, and the importance of figuring out who we are in order to go after what we truly want. It's also a portrait of a high-drama subculture where barrooms may as well be bedrooms, and loyal friends fill in the spaces absent families leave behind. Katie's glimpse into this wild yet fiercely tight-knit community begins to alter not only how she sees the larger world, but also where exactly she fits in.

Not too original

The story was fairly predictable except with two women and for two woman it was even more predictable. Not many surprises. I suppose if one were straight and never been with a woman it probably was more interesting. But in terms of a compelling story not really there. The narrator was poor and didn't really differentiate the voices of the different characters very well. They really needed a second voice to make the performance more interesting.

Narrator

The book was really good. Highly recommend it. The Narrator was horrible though. They definitely need a new one.

Not as great as I heard it was

Kind of left me with a "meh" feeling, not as great of a love story as they hyped it up

Cliched “lesbian” romance

Hot dyke, lonely recently dumped straight girl. Mix together and what do you get, this half assed story. Very disappointed with the book, the ending sucked. There was no exposition about what happens once straight girl comes out of the closet to her religious family. Nothing happened I’m left to guess. Then the couple talks of doing something at the end of the book, which up to this point, neither one of them mentions ever wanting to do. There are no sex scenes. I am assuming the writer is straight and had no experience to draw upon in that department. Bad, bad, bad.

Expected.

It was a cute cheesy, predictable love story of the classic gay girl straight girl. Nice simple story but the narration has no inflection; boring.

ok story

Story was a little dry but overall was a decent listen to. I wish the narrator could have done a little more with this book but oh well.
