    One thought on “LoveLife”

    1. To be totally honest, I did not think I would read a book about a life coach. Not a very exciting topic. But I love Rachel Spangler, and feel the need to give all of her books a shot. I am pleasantly surprised how much I connected to the book. I think it's a very personal connection, in fact some of this book hit way too close to home. And talk about making me emotional, I couldn't stop the water works thru most of this book.I don't know if this book will connect with everyone. Some might find i [...]

    2. A well done lesbian romance. There is a formula to all romance novels gay or straight and this is no exception. Shy boi Joey meets the girl of her dreams in the coffee shop she works at and with the help of her meddling best friend makes a connection. Of course it doesn't go as planned and there is a big obstacle they have to overcome to be together. The characters are fun, Joey is adorable and Elaine turns out to need some life coaching of her own but what therapist doesn't? Isn't there a sayin [...]

    3. This was a weird reading experience. I went from annoyed, to placated, to very annoyed, in between really liking parts of the story.What initially drew me to the novel was the description of the main character as a boi. That sounded like it at least hat the potential to break out of the lesfic mold. That hope didn't come true.The novel falls into several romace novel cliches that make it boring and predictable. A lot of my annoyance my reading was pre-emptive, knowing how certain things would tu [...]

    4. Left Wanting This book is well written; kept my interest for the most part, yet, I at the end I am left with a feeling of wanting.Wanting more passion (not necessarily sex), more interaction between the main characters that isn't of an analytical nature and more romance.Such a lackluster book would be better served by a different tittle.Three stars because of the quality of the writing.

    5. This was a slow starter for me, but I'm glad I kept reading! Before I knew it I was attached to the characters and rooting them on. And oh my gosh – Joey is absolutely adorable. I could gobble her up! The setting was also really nice. Very good description of the city and the weather. Made me long for snow. Good read!

    6. I was rather surprised when Bold Strokes Books invited me to read this title on Netgalley. I have reviewed one of their books before, Me@you, a contemporary LGBT young-adult novel. LoveLife is a contemporary lesbian romance novel, which seems a far stretch from my usual genres, but I decide to give it a try.When the beautiful Elaine comes walking into her coffee shop, Joey is immediately drawn to her but she's too insecure to ask her out. After some meddling by her best friend Lisa she gets an a [...]

    7. Penny's Rating: C-When I read the description for this book, I was super excited. My first lesbian book review for Net Galley? Bring it. I tackled it enthusiastically, and overall, I am very sorry to say that I was disappointed. I do however think that where I found the story lacking has more to do with my own personal viewpoint the story itself. It is a well written story, it’s just that the story embodies that whole Bridget Jones’s Diary-ish whiny non-proactive woman thing, and that crap d [...]

    8. I really struggled with reading LoveLife. I had a hard time understanding the motivation behind either main character's choices, and could not get excited about the "chemistry" between them. I did not find the coffee shop boi meets exec-turned life coach a very compelling set of circumstances. In particular the newly-dubbed life coaches rampant insecurities, and the coffee shop boi's seeming complete lack of personal drive. Others readers have been able to relate to these to women, so I chalk it [...]

    9. Excellent! I loved this book. I loved the story. So many life lessons. I loved the character of Joey. She's thoughtful, kind, smart and lacking in self confidence. I loved Elaine. Great story.

    10. Repeating the name Joey 1000+ times in 254 pages is not OK, Elaine is nearly as abused at 700+.The story was diverting and I would give the book another star without the problem mentioned above.

    11. Very sweet storyI liked the way this story developed. How Joey's character evolved throughout the story line was also sweet and encouraging . The two characters found their attraction building and acted responsibly to the conclusion of the end of the story. Well done!

    12. Good, quick, if not terribly deep. Set in Buffalo in the winter - about gay love and conquering insecurities.

    13. A nice diversionary tale. Both too long and too short all at the same time. One must suspend some serious disbelief, but that is after all, what good escapist lit is all about.
