What the community says about Denial
- #4 of 104
in What are the best erotica books"What a surprise, a very complex surprise. I've only finished the book today and am left feeling ... bittersweet, maybe? This is an intricate, detailed story with one main arc but many secondary / tertiary characters, and they are nearly all very well drawn and feel thorough. No one is all-good, no one is all-bad: they all (even the most extra of extras) feel complete and real. Twenty-four year-old Amy, a Scotswoman, is engaged to twenty-nine year-old PhD student Josh; Josh is a Floridian (American) with French and Scottish parents, a younger sister (Sophie) and a twin sister named Celeste. Celeste, a great, statuesque beauty, is a physician, working in war-torn countries under the auspices of Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). Josh is a sweet, amiable man who clearly adores both his family and Amy; when Amy and Celeste initially meet, Celeste is a bit of a bitch -- tired from jet lag and short-tempered from both the airline misplacing her luggage and also carry-over from her harsh work experiences. Amy's not impressed. When they all meet up again a year later in preparation for the wedding, Amy and Celeste both realize there is a frisson between them and Amy is confused and angry (with herself for feeling that way). Celeste is also confused -- this is her brother's fiancee, after all! But she also knows that what she feels for Amy is powerful and real."
- "Hate cheating, it's so hurtful and having to read about it irritates me so I try to avoid the subject. However, I read this and cheating is in this, but it was a really good book. I cried, not going to lie, and I'm a guy. It's a gut wrenching story that's well worth the read. "
- "If you’re looking for a book with lesbian Mom characters, Denial is not it. Lesbian romance, yes. “Mom” characters, no. Even as lesbian romance, it wasn’t great. The love triangle is a little tropey. The prose is heavy. And there were sections of the book that really dragged on."
- "As a heterosexual male, lesbian novels have always had a certain attraction to me. I certainly wasn't disappointed in this one. And without going into too many details, it served it's intended purpose for me."
- "Want a bit of girl-on-girl action with a lot of twists, turns, and angst? Well Denial is for you. I admit I pulled it off the shelves for a bit of 'fun reading', but it really is good. Surprisingly good. It really dives into the complications of deep, forbidden romance especially when it's the sister of your fiancee. How awkward. Highly recommend and not just for the sex. Although, that is great too."
