I fell in love with this story. I mean, older geek girls in a variety of careers and places in their life. Sign me up! Each girl is distinct with their own personality and issue to work through, but they all connect in that way busy friends do. I loved seeing their support of each other, their honesty, and each one of them figuring out their next move. The fact that they were older and had lived a little was refreshing. Sometimes I think older women get left out of fiction.
I'm dying to know what will happen next. Will Michelle continue to heal from her divorce and further investigate the world of BDSM. Is Christina ready to be out in the open with the woman she's dating, who happens to be pretty darn famous? Will Ati get over her nerves at her first major book event? WillRuby land the job she needs?
There were parts I found to be slow and info dumpy, but for the most part the pace was on point.
If you're a fan of conventions, POC finding representation in writing, and Geek Girls. Give this one a read
