Her Hometown Girl By Lorelie Brown

 
⭐⭐⭐⭐


From the back cover synopsis:

I had doubts before the Big Day—doesn’t everyone?—but I didn’t expect to find my fiancée banging the caterer’s assistant right before the ceremony. Especially because he’s a guy. And we’re lesbians. The proper sort of Southern Californian lesbians who invest in hedge funds and wear bedazzled wedding dresses and wouldn’t be caught dead in a Subaru.


But then I became a runaway bride, headed straight for Belladonna Ink to get the kind of tattoo I always wanted and my ex always called trashy. She didn’t approve of a lot of things I did. I think maybe she didn’t approve of who I am.

The “I” here is Tansy.

In Tansy, Brown has created one of the most achingly vulnerable and movingly courageous characters ever. She is damaged and broken in so many ways because of the wholly abusive relationship with the cheating ex with whom she had been from the time she was a freshman. Yet she is brave enough to set out to reclaim herself and tentatively start a relationship with Cai, her tattoo artist. Tansy is a character that touches you and brings out a fierce sense of protectiveness.

In Cai, the author has created an appropriate counterpoint to Tansy. Someone who is protective but unsure of what she wants in a relationship. Someone who wants to be there and is slightly out of her depth. Someone who rises to Tansy’s needs and insecurities despite her own uncertainties.

Though completely a romance, it is the characters, especially Tansy, that capture you and stay with you. A book that will get you totally emotionally invested and remain with you.


⭐⭐⭐⭐

Note that this one has role play and light BDSM.
