    "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."

    "Fairly erotic for men to read, but outside of the lesbian fantasy, its a great story. Well told and hard to put down. Very realistic as well."

    "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."

    "Denial by Kennedy is one of the better books with a lesbian Mom character. Kennedy writes her characters to life with realism and honesty. The story is well-paced and it is an entertaining read."

    "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."

    "Never date someone who shares your first name! That said as far as Lesbian books go, you could do worse...and better. Add it to your shelf for the LGBT cred, but that's about it."

    "I honestly was skeptical about reading this book since I don't usually enjoy romance. However, it was interesting to read anyway. The book brought up situations I never would have thought of on my own."

    "A good story to be sure, not sure about the hopeless romantic story though. I don't think any romantic is truly hopeless."

    "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."

    "The book says its about love but to me it runs more along the lines of obsession. The story arc is written very well and brings the reader into its unique world to experience it."

    "This book was erotic and very interesting about two women who were obsessed with each other but the epic love is doomed to the end and this kept me glued to the book since it was very entertaining.I loved it a great deal."

    "I bought Denial on a friend's recommendation and am sure glad I did. The best romance novel I've read this year. I especially like that the protagonists are a lesbian couple."
