Lists with This Book. Aug 05, Tara rated it really liked it Shelves: I’ve been reading so many books written in the last 10 years that this felt very different.
There aren’t many coming out stories being published at this point, so this was a good reminder of kallmakfr different things are now. Oct 21, Jay Odon rated it really liked it Shelves: Faith Fitzgerald is engaged to Eric Van Allen and she hopes that this relationship will bring to a close the sins of her past. Sydney Van Allen, Eric’s sister, is a high profile attorney with a past of her own.
When the two women meet there is instant attraction which neither of them are willing “The Sixth is Serendipity” What do you get when you combine a high profile attorney on the political track and a future sister-in-law who has a secret past that she dare not let anyone know?
When the two women meet there is instant attraction which neither of them are willing to acknowledge. While Sydney kallmaksr on the political track kallmamer her sins have already been laid bare, Faith is a professor that still live in her ultra-conservative christian family. Faith has had a little experience in the love department but none of it has been with a man, not until Eric, who respects her upbringing and is willing to wait til they are married.
As Faith and Sydney get closer, they start to realize that they share a kallmakre, one for Eric and one for each other. Trying to assert herself, Faith decides it is time for her family to know the real her, so she tells them that she loves women, one in particular, and she doesn’t want to keep living a lie. As suspected her father goes into rage mode and the only thing in his way is Faith’s brother who stands up for her.
After that scene she decides to move out, and live her life, all the while trying to ignore her feelings for Sydney. Sydney realizes the attraction between them and tries to stay away but true love cannot be bottled up. Faith breaks up with Eric who is way more understanding that she thought possible and he remains a great friend as their relationship changes and Sydney becomes more to her than just a friend. This is a great coming of age tale, although it is late in life, just letting us know that whatever happens if you are true to yourself nothing can stand in your way.
Sep 26, Evan rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People who like books based on funny premises and those who like algoo romances. It’s set in the mid 90’s in Chicago.
On Sydney’s side, there’s a supportive, incredible, sweet, slightly older, very successful brother, nice parents, and very celebrated and successful in their own right extended family. Sydney’s family is ridiculously rich but her and her brother work hard at their chosen professions.
They are not the idle rich which they could easily be. Besides the obstacle of Eric and their developing feelings for each other, Sydney is weary of dating because she doesn’t want her sexuality to be the center of her campaign.
Will these two crazy kids work it out and live happily ever after? Read it and find out! This book is a simply written, enjoyable page turner. I have to say that I was surprised to find that this is my new favorite Karin Kallmaker book. I always expect to love her books but this one took me by surprise. Upon finishing the book I wanted to immediately re-read it. I loved it that much. The book is told from both main characters points of views and I found myself completely tied to both characters.
There were scenes and lines that had me holding my breath. Like when she says- “For every thought of him, I think of you a hundred times,” I f I have to say that I was surprised to find that this is my new favorite Karin Kallmaker book. Like when she says- “For every thought of him, I think of you a hundred times,” I found myself highlighting line after line with my ereader. Just a great read. KK at her best!
Feb 28, Leavethesky rated it really liked it Shelves: A well-written, interesting romance with well-drawn characters and an interesting storyline. I would have liked to see more tension in Sydney’s story and the potential impact of her attraction to Faith on her political career, but was satisfied overall with this one and it doesn’t bill itself as a political thriller. Overall, the depiction of Faith, a devout Catholic and an academic and Sydney, a super-rich, lesbian, politician, rang true and the author didn’t rely on the usual artificial obstac A well-written, interesting romance with well-drawn characters and an interesting storyline.
Overall, the depiction of Faith, a devout Catholic and an academic and Sydney, a super-rich, lesbian, politician, rang true and the author didn’t rely on the usual artificial obstacles and painful misunderstandings to further the plot. Mar 17, Agirlcandream rated it it was amazing. My how times have changed.
My longish review got erased somehow last night but what I had tried to say was how impressed I was with Ms Kallmaker’s efforts to educate all who read this book. I had to check the publication date to aprreciate just how far acceptance of same sex relationships have come in the past almost twenty years. A must read for everyone in this mostly post DOMA era we live in.
Jan 11, Corvida rated it liked it. The description above is incorrect. Here’s a quick synopsis: Sydney Van Allen is a rising star on the political horizon. Faith Fitzgerald is a dedicated scholar and award-winning author. Thrown together by fate, these strong, independent women find themselves impassioned by a dangerous longing that compels them to surrender- body and soul! Dec 25, Ty rated it liked it. The first half of this was better than the second, in my opinion.
I had been reading, thinking that this didn’t feel like a 20 year old novel, but as the two women got closer to getting together, that changed. It began to show its age a bit. Still, this is well written and engaging. Jan 23, Ulla rated it it was amazing Shelves: I completely agree with the previous reviewer!
I love this story I love all of Karin’s stories, of course but this one is extra interesting with the historical content! Have the first Naiad edition and the pages are starting to fall – as it’s a book I read appr. May 16, C. Reid rated it really liked it. A pure and simple classic. May 29, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked the aspect of this book that dealt with religion and coming out. Well written and introspective. Aug 28, M rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent, really enjoyable read.
I just wish there had been more, you cover an awful lot of ground in quite a short space of time. Jun 21, R. Samuel rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of my favorite lesfic books. Loved the interaction between Faith and Sidney. Wild Things was wicked fun This was my first Kallmaker and I will definitely be reading more of her stuff. The intrigue was high and the predicament Faith finds herself in is quite the puzzle. I enjoyed going on this journey with her and I loved the history that got interwoven into the story.
Note that there is some domestic abuse father on daughter violence portrayed and if that is triggering for you, give this one a pass. Oct 03, andrea rated it really liked it Shelves: The characters were pretty good, and the plot was well put together.
