All I Want for Christmas by Clare Lydon
All I Want - Book One
Just not for me. I liked the premise, woman wants a girlfriend for Christmas and goes about seeking one out, with commentary from her best friend and roommate. She has misadventures, says clever things, does a lot of moaning and groaning about her lot in romantic life and can't see what's in front of her face.
It reads too much like chick lit for me to enjoy, really. New Adult chick lit. *sigh*
Now, don't get me wrong, the author does a wonderful job in her chosen genre/voice. I just didn't like it much.
I like my romances to have obstacles and hurdles for the couple to overcome, on their own and together. I haven't found many f/f romances that manage to do that. They all seem either tortured or bland. I shall continue to hunt, but I am getting a bit discouraged.
