When Katie Met Cassidy
When Katie Met Cassidy | Camille Perri
From the acclaimed author of THE ASSISTANTS comes another gutsy book about the importance of women taking the reins--except this time, when it comes to finding sexuality, pleasure and love sometimes where you least expect it. Katie Daniels is a perfection-seeking 28-year-old lawyer living the New York dream. She's engaged to charming art curator Paul Michael, has successfully made her way up the ladder at a multinational law firm, and has a hold on apartments in Soho and the West Village. Suffice it to say, she has come a long way from her Kentucky upbringing. But the rug is swept from under Katie when she is suddenly dumped by her fiance, Paul Michael, leaving her devastated and completely lost. On a whim, she agrees to have a drink with Cassidy Price-a self-assured, sexually promiscuous woman she meets at work. The two form a newfound friendship, which soon brings into question everything Katie thought she knew about sex--and love. WHEN KATIE MET CASSIDY is a romantic comedy that explores how, as a culture, while we may have come a long way in terms of gender equality, a woman's capacity for and entitlement to sexual pleasure still remain entirely taboo. This novel tackles the question: Why, when it comes to female sexuality, are so few women figuring out what they want and then going out and doing it?

Katie‘s fiancé just left her, for her best friend. Enter Cassidy, a fellow lawyer & Katie‘s opposite, as a confident, mens-suit-wearing lesbian. Katie & Cassidy are immediately drawn to each other but Cassidy‘s out of the ordinary desire for more than a one night stand & Katie‘s out of the ordinary infatuation with a woman, can‘t actually work out bc Katie is straight. isn‘t she?
honestly Katie starts out kind of insufferable but she gets better

Cute little rom-com that was an easy read. Parts didn't make sense, like when the author wrote that Cassidy found it charming when Katie frequently said things like "dear lord" or "bless her heart". Katie never once had that in her lines. Katie kind of annoyed me, but I loved Cassidy's character.

So other than mailing dad's gift to him, that finishes my goals for #JoysOfJune. I want to read 2 more books before the readathon is over.

Fun, quick read! Tennessee raised, turned NY lawyer Katie gets dumped by her tool fiancée (who she was never really emotionally connected with anyway) and then coincidentally meets Cassidy, the cool, confident lesbian lawyer working across the table from her one day. Fast forward - Katie realizes she might like girls and Cassidy realizes she might be interested in Katie in a deeper way than her normal one night stands...

Cassidy is a strong, confident, suit wearing lesbian who enjoys a series of one night stands. Katie is recovering from being dumped by her perfect on paper fiancee, who left her for the one friend she thought she had.
Both are instantly intrigued by one another, but Katie's straight. Or not?
Continued below in comments

MidnightBookGirl I loved how this was story of two people meeting and clicking. Katie learns a lot about herself through the relationship, and Cassidy has to make herself vulnerable in a real relationship- and with the fact that Katie is new to dating a woman.

I found myself rooting for this couple (and very worried that Katie would break Cassidy's heart).

Another quick morning walk with my audiobook and a cup of tea. It was so windy out, that I barley hit 4,000 steps. Hopefully it‘ll warm up later, and I can head out for another walk. Otherwise I‘m thinking it‘s going to be a lazy day for the #BookFitnessChallenge

I was excited to read a lesbian romance. This was not the book I wanted it to be, the straight girl trope is far from a favorite and I thought the whole story was flat. At least it was only two hours of my life wasted. 👍🏼👍🏼

Recommend your favorite adult F/F HEA/HFN romance! (female/female, happily ever after/happily for now)
* No YA/NA (young/new adult)
* Must be romance, not just a romantic side plot
* Queer main characters
* Limited/no trauma
Ideally queer authors
Representation of trans, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, Black, POC, disabled, neurodiverse, and other underrepresented voices to the front! #queerbooks #ownvoices

Verity I‘m glad I‘m here early because I haven‘t read a lot of f/f so I know my choices won‘t be that original! I loved the new Courtney Milan novella if you want a historical. 3y
Verity Or if you want a contemporary, Likotsi‘s story is fab. With the added bonus that if you‘ve read Princess in Theory you‘ve seen part of it sort of unfolding without knowing. 3y
Verity Can‘t wait to see everyone else‘s reccs add add them to my tbr! 3y

The lyrics for #ringofkeys made me think of this book. The swagger that the singer talks about just brought to mind Cassidy, in her power suits, with her devil may care attitude. I loved her character so much that I fell for this story book, line, and sinker. #musicalnewyear

This didn‘t review well and I kinda actually loved it and am not ashamed to stand by that. I personally found it to be super refreshing in a world of Fifty Shades. This was edgy and fun and I love that it had two super strong women as the leads. The ending was awesome and I want a part 2.

This was neither as bad as I had heard but not as great as I had also heard. I found it a standard romance with unremarkable characters and not a great story. It's disappointing Kate never considers that being bi is an option, yes. But I don't think the book at all reinforces negative stereotypes about lesbians as some reviews have said; I suspect people think any representation of masculine and/or promiscuous lesbians is "bad press"? #QueerBooks

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian This actually reminded me of Jasmine Guillory's books, with the promise but lackluster characterization and plot--like, a romance where the two people are dating and things are apparently going very well (even though there are many things that should be given one person has emotional intimacy issues and the other is just realizing she's queer) for most of the book is ... boring. #Romantsy 4y

TBH, I'm starting this book kind of against my better judgement? A few people whose opinions I trust have said it was terrible, but also other people I also trust have loved it? I'm so confused! I also want to see if the #bisexual erasure is as bad as I have heard. I did find the first few pages compulsively readable so it has that going for it so far? #QueerBooks

I loved Perri's first book, The Assistants, so I was excited to try this book. It didn't disappoint! When Katie Met Cassidy is less of an edge of your seat scandal, but it's a cute Lesbian romance. I loved watching the characters change as they tried to figure out their new identities in a situation neither had ever been in before. There's not a lot of substance and the audiobook is less than 6.5 hours, but it's light and enjoyable!

I was hoping for so much more out of a f/f romance that went the literary version of viral. If these characters were heterosexual, this novel would not have gained any press because without the f/f aspect to sell it, this book would be boring. I was disappointed but it was a fast read with enough intrigue to not be a pan.

This was a quick and easy read... and while I don't typically go for romance, this one drew me in when I saw it on #BotM.

All in all I enjoyed this book - although there were a few moments of cliches and stereotyping that surprised me coming from an author who is part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Even if the book wasn't perfect, it's still a strong contribution to a largely underrepresented group - and for that, it's a "Pick".

This book can indeed be considered light and fluffy.... but it also comes off as superficial both with characterization and queer issues in general. There's a lot of problematic stereotypes thrown in with the light and fluffy. This is a fine gateway book into queer romance, but not a great book overall.

2BR02B Yes, I agree with you. I found the stereotypes very irksome. 4y

I had high hopes, and then the book sort of fizzled. The book was well written, but I feel that both Katie and Cassidy had some flaws that needed to be addressed, but were just good over. It bother me that Katie was such a weak character, as in she was a doormat. I do like their initial meeting, as in when they first met, not their accidental meeting that evening. It was suck a meet-cute

Aaaugh! I wanted something light, fun, and breezy for my heatwave tofu brain. Started off great, cute meet, and the million butterflies in your tummy feeling when you‘re not sure you‘re in love or lust nicely done. But the hints at conflict that never materialize, and the rushed wrap it all up fluff ending made me want to throw something. Katherine V. Forrest‘s Curious Wine way hotter romance for first affair. Back to noir!
