#LGBTApril, Review: A Kiss in the Dark

Laura Plus Books

When Alex meets Kate the attraction is instant.

Alex is funny, good-looking, and a little shy – everything that Kate wants in a boyfriend.

Alex can’t help falling for Kate, who is pretty, charming and maybe just a little naive…

But one of them is hiding a secret, and as their love blossoms, it threatens to ruin not just their relationship, but their lives.

-Spoiler Warning-  I did write this at first with no spoilers, and it had little impact on what I really wanted to say. So, it was impossible to write about this in a way that wouldn't spoil anything, though I'm not spoiling everything and besides, you get to know the truth within the first couple of chapters. I also wanted this to be more of a discussion review than an actual one because it's a serious issue.
This one was a hard one to get through, not because of the subject but because of the reality of it. It's relative, and that's what's fucking scary, because it shouldn't be. You know? It shouldn't be such a big ordeal, and I both hate and pity Alex for what she pretended to be because she wasn't secure in herself, and you know why that is?
