Can I give it 10 stars?… No?! Okay, here’s my review of Unconventional Lovers by Annette Mori.
This novel was outstanding! Better than I could have ever imagined.
There are two love stories running in parallel throughout this novel. The first one is between Bri and Siera who met unexpectedly and discover their likeness in every way from personality to appearance. Siera comes from a somewhat sheltered life where her mother thrives on using Siera to prove the world wrong. Bri has recently come to live with her Aunt Olivia and is working for her in the veterinary clinic where she proves that her abilities with animals go beyond any college qualification. These women find each other and begin to understand the true meaning of soul mates and one person completing the other.
While Bri and Siera embark on a life changing love, their aunts begin to spend time with each other finding their own version of love. Olivia adores her niece, Bri and knows the only way to broaden her horizons is to have her come live with her where she can hone in on Bri’s special abilities with animals thusly giving her the freedom she deserves but has never received at home. When Olivia meets Siera’s Aunt Deb the attraction is instant but she isn’t ready to move on after the death of her partner, Diane but that doesn’t mean they can’t be friends. Deb is attracted to Olivia from the moment she lays eyes on her. She wants more than friendship but with Olivia keeping her at arms length she’s willing to wait it out because what they could have is worth the wait.
Anette Mori has been able to bring down barriers not just in the Lesbian Fiction but also with the preconceived idea that not everyone gets to fall in love. Everyone should get the chance to experience the magic and you will understand the true meaning of love by the end of this novel.
The heroes of this story are definitely Bri and Siera who have quite literally left me stunned in the best possible way. I shed many tears reading this book most of which were from the moments these two graced the page together. I love that the internal thoughts of both Bri and Siera let the reader know that they are actually so much more switched on than anyone in the novel thinks they are.
Deb and Olivia are the kind of people I would be close friends with. These women would do anything for their nieces including being their biggest advocates and support their relationship from the beginning. Debs flirtatious and funny nature is much like mine so I had a few chuckles at her teasing of Olivia.
I have so much more to say but I really don’t want to spoil what’s is truly one of the best books I’ve ever read… and I’ve read a lot of books! This book is everything and if like me you like authors who think outside the box and push the boundaries then this book is definitely for you.
Go buy it now… seriously go!!! You can thank me later.
