I picked up this novella because I loved the cover, and the description sounded very intriguing and promising. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to discover it has a lot of drama, romance, and hot scenes for such a short piece of writing. The author managed to balance everything very well, and I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it.
First of all, I loved the characters. I could totally relate to Rachel and understand how much she suffered after her boyfriend decided to leave her for another woman. I also liked the fact that she remained strong and positive, and chose to be his friend even though he had hurt her. This is not something that anyone can easily do. Rachel’s decision to avoid men and date women instead was understandable, and this made the character very believable, and her actions realistic.
Kathryn is also an interesting character, and I liked how she raised Rachel’s confidence and made her feel desired and appreciated. Meeting Kathryn was very important for Rachel even though things turned out a different way. I admit the twist took me by surprise. Sienna Wilder is such a good and clever writer, that it is impossible for the reader to predict what might happen next. It was one of the few moments when something happened in a story and I didn’t see it coming. This was one of the things that made me want to read more of the author’s writing, along with the complex plot, well-developed characters, and very hot erotic scenes.
Fans of the genre will absolutely love the sex scenes in this story. There is one that takes place in a doctor’s office, and even though I thought it was a bit unrealistic, it was very well written. I mean, I can’t imagine something like that happening in a doctor’s office, but it worked great for the story. And the chemistry between Rachel and Elizabeth is perfect. After that particular point in the story, I wished that something would happen and Rachel would end up with Elizabeth instead of Kathryn.
After reading “Turning Lesbian”, I feel like Sienna Wilder is going to become a popular name in LGBT literature.
