Review: Take Me Home by Lorelie Brown

Take Me Home (Belladonna Ink #2) by Lorelie Brown

Notes: ARC received via NetGalley.
Lesbian Romance, LGBT, Contemporary Romance
Digital (110 pages, RIPTIDE)
Thanksgiving arrives in one week and one day. Feeling hemmed in by parental expectations? Are they disappointed by your sapphic proclivities? I can help! The only pay I want is the holiday meal!
I didn’t know what I was looking for until I saw her Craigslist ad.
I love my family. I’m lucky to have them — well, most of them. But my aunt? I’m so tired of her giving my mom crap because I happen to be a lesbian. So one pink-haired tattoo artist pretending to be my girlfriend will annoy my Christian fundamentalist aunt right back and make my Thanksgiving perfect.
Only . . . Brooke turns out to be cuter and more complicated than I expected. And before you can say “yorkiepoo,” we kiss . . . and abduct a dog together. I want to keep them both — but Brooke isn’t the kind to be kept. Lucky for me, I’m the kind to chase what I want.

A triple-treat of sexy, sweet, and funny! (4 stars)

Who doesn't love the fake relationship trope? I've seen it done many ways but had yet to read one that was centered around a fake date for a holiday dinner with family. It's fun in movies so I figured it'd be even better as a book. I definitely got what I was looking for and then some.

Keighley and Brooke are such an enjoyable couple. They're very different from one another but in ways that make them a good match. I'm still fairly new to reading lesbian romances that have open-door love scenes but I feel confident saying that this physical side of the relationship was scorching. Outside of the sexual chemistry the pair have some awkward moments where I felt like the dialog was disjointed but I think a lot of it stems from the first-person, present-tense narrative style which I am notably not a fan of.

Overall, this was a wonderful mix of funny, sweet, and sexy that is perfect for reading around the holidays. I sat down and read it in one sitting and enjoyed it so much I immediately went and added the first Belldonna Ink book to my wishlist.
