For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.

But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.

Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old school punk rocker. …

Sapphic paranormal romance with some important messages

5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. It's a love story, but it's also a story about friendship, the LGBTQ+ rights movement, self-worth, breaking toxic patterns, and so on.

Every chapter is packed with information. There are lots of side plots along with the main one and there's no filler at all. This can be a little overwhelming since there are not many scenes to just breathe, so I'm glad that I took ten days to read this.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in LGBTQ fiction, you can tell there's a lot of heart in this, and it's hard because LGBTQ history is, but it's worth reading and it's necessary.

Sympathische, cheesy, spannende lesBische Butch/Femme Romanze

4 stars

Es lohnt sich, das Hörbuch (Berliner Bibs haben es) zu hören ohne vorher auch nur ein Wort über den Inhalt zu lesen um Spoiler zu vermeiden.

War das 1. Hörbuch das ich freiwillig gehört habe, da die Sprecherin nicht nervig oder monoton war, sondern wirklich angenehm. Die Story ist angenehm und inspirierend, wenn natürlich auch cheesy hoch drölf und voller Plotholes. Trotzdem eine sympathische, lesBIsche Butch/Femme Romanze mit vielen queeren Charas, Community und Detektiv_innen-Aspekt. Allein die ausführlichen Sexszenen hätte es für mich nicht gebraucht, auch wenn diese tatsächlich erfrischend wenig cringy waren.

Goofy paranormal queer romance that mostly works

3 stars

I somehow missed that this was going to have a paranormal element—the protagonist’s love interest really is stuck on the Q—and I didn’t love that element. But I liked the characters and the sex scenes were good and I would definitely date a 1970s punk dyke

Review of 'One Last Stop' on 'Storygraph'

5 stars

This was extremely sweet and spicy and the time travel elements had the feeling of an 80s action movie plot, I really enjoyed it.
