After I finished this novel I thought to myself, “how on earth am I going to review it and not give anything away?”
Book blurb from Amazon:
“I’d never believed in love at first sight. I mean, it had never happened to me, so I guess I just didn’t think about it. But then…
Darcy. Beautiful, kind, intelligent Darcy, who showed me a whole new meaning to the word love, and how to live when I thought there was nothing to live for.
While teaching me how to play the guitar a deep friendship developed between us, but it only made me want what I couldn’t have…or could I? Faced with difficult times and hard choices, Darcy becomes a crucial element in my life.
I’m hiding something from her though. Something big that could destroy all the trust we’ve built.
Was it love at first sight? No.
It was so much more.”
Lesbian fiction author, Angela Peach, has done it again! ‘Playing My Love’ captivated me and I honestly felt for these characters from page one. I felt their happiness, their sorrow, their uplifting spirits, their love, as well as their journeys. This book is categorized as a romantic comedy, but I think it was much more. Deeper really.
“How did she do that? I stared at her in amazement. Without even talking to me, she’d completely altered my mood from depressed and suicidal to hopeful and uplifted.”
It’s true in other reviews stating that this book plays your heartstrings. As a hopeless romantic myself and one who loves stories where love is challenged, fought for, and hoping to be won in the end – this is definitely a book that hooked me. Now, with saying that and not giving it all away, Angela has given 2 alternate endings – one of which you may choose for yourself. To be honest though, I felt it was a bit confusing to have to read one ending and then fall into another. But hey, way to switch it up! My favorite was #2 – you’ll just have to find out exactly what that is when you read it ;)
“No matter where I was, if I wasn’t with Alison, I would always be thinking about her. My feelings for her weren’t ever going to go away.”
Have you ever been in love but couldn’t act upon it? Everyone has their reasons why and Angela really takes you through their individual journeys. I definitely recommend this book. It’s a great easy read that has light-hearted moments, comedic banter, and deeper meanings.
