Too Close to Touch By Georgia Beers


The best thing about this book? The two women are thirty-seven and forty-seven.

This is seriously an excellent thing. We’re a little fed-up by the fact that all lesbian romances, erotic romances and erotica are about women in their mid- to late- twenties, with a few early- to mid- thirties sometimes making an appearance. A notable exception in this age bias is Ab Kaāl’s Everything Has Changed. That book has the whole butterflies-in-stomach, Before Sunrise vibe and excitement of falling in love with a more mature couple – and it is just delicious. C’mon people, women of all ages are sexy.

Gretchen Kaiser is a successful sales manager, just joining a new company in New York. Kylie O'Brien is the EAA whom she inherits. Neither is in-your-face open, but they are not particularly closeted either. Gretchen starts off as a take-no-prisoners, tough-as-nails boss to the whole sales team under her. Kylie is the sweeter, kinder softie – who Gretchen viciously, verbally walks over.

Frankly, we don’t see Gretchen’s appeal to Kylie…but Kylie’s appeal to anyone is hard to miss or overlook. Now, when we don’t like one of the main leads, it is difficult to get drawn either into the book or the romance. But Kylie’s draw kept us going.  

This is an okay book. Read for Kylie…but you may just get frustrated (like us) by the fact Kylie like Gretchen. So actually, take it or leave it. Beers is a fairly good writer, so you can certainly count on a decent calibre of writing and plot development. She also has all the office tropes more or less down to a pat. But she really seems to favour this whole Miranda Priestly kind of boss…and those women are really off-putting.
