Sara Walker’s life is going nowhere fast: she has a job she enjoys but doesn’t love, friends who are too busy to hang out with her, and no boyfriend in sight. Then a phone call on a lonely Friday night changes everything, and suddenly she’s spending her weekends with Laura. Newly single and openly bisexual, Laura makes Sara think decidedly not-straight thoughts.
Laura Murphy, with her red hair, freckles, and killer curves, is any guy’s wet dream. But Laura’s done with guys for now, and it’s Sara who can’t stop dreaming about her. When Sara finally gives in to the curiosity, Laura blows her mind and pushes her further than she’s ever gone before.
But Laura makes it very clear that this is only a rebound fling, and she’s still planning to move to California. She’s more than happy to tie Sara up, but she’s not ready to be tied down. If Sara wants to keep her, she’s going to have to work hard to convince Laura that New York is worth staying for . . . and so is she.
So… most of you know that F/F romances aren’t my go-to genre. But, if you’ve been following closely, you also know that I’m committed to the Seasons of Love series and didn’t want to take a chance on missing anything that happens between Whiteout and Changing Colors. 😉 I also have a confession. I’ve kinda had a love/hate relationship with Sara since the beginning of the Seasons of Love series. Honestly, it wasn’t her fault. She was just looking out for her best friend and eventually she did come around. It still took her a little bit of time to win me over.
From the beginning Sara and Laura were on the same page… until they weren’t. Sara wasn’t a lesbian or even bi, she was just curious. Laura wasn’t looking for anything but a rebound, especially since she wasn’t planning on sticking around. Sara began to see more though. More to Laura and more to the non-relationship that was developing between them.
There were a couple of fun little twists in Heat Wave and a couple of cameos from previous characters. I’m really loving this series and the more layers that are added, the more fun it becomes. This was a nice little segues to Changing Colors, the next and final book in the Seasons of Love series. I’ve gotta admit, I’ve been looking forward to Tony’s book since the series started. Some of the events in Heat Wave only reinforced my need to see him find his HEA.
