Présentation de l'éditeur

Sydney Brisbane has worked hard all her young life. These days, she works hard to balance between being Dr. Brisbane, the psychologist, and Sydney, the girlfriend.

Zabe Abazi is Sydney’s fiery opposite - dark and wild to Sydney’s blonde optimism and serious nature. Separated by time and geographical distance, these former college roommates are ill-prepared for what happens when they unexpectedly reconnect.

Edit: February 1st, 2013.
As a number of the two- and three-star reviewers rightly observed, Date Night had a number of grammatical and stylistic errors. I have since done a thorough edit and have revised the bulk of mistakes that my beta reader and I missed the first time around.

Biographie de l'auteur

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I shook my head 30 janvier 2013
Par sayock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Let me put it this way--if this book were made into a movie, it'd be very similar to one of those soft porn movies that air on Cinemax at night, only pretty strictly with lesbian scenes. Now, if you're into reading stuff like that--and I wasn't particularly opposed to that, just didn't expect it--you might like this book. And if you're not looking for anything that's believable or well-written, you might be okay to buy this, too. Essentially, if you're into lesbian fluff or want to get into it, or want to read a bunch of lesbian sex scenes or semi-sex scenes, this is for you.

There are two main things that drove me crazy, though, and still have me shaking my head:

1) Grammar errors galore. I can't tell you how many times the author wrote "the Sydney" or "the Zabe," i.e. something like "Sydney took a step towards the Zabe..." What does your or my name need with "the" in front of it all the time? There were plenty of other errors, but this insertion of "the" every other time you read someone's name in the book was just annoying. I'm going to start running around calling myself "the Renee" all the time and calling my co-workers "the Thomas" and "the David." This book either wasn't edited or someone sucks as an editor.

2) Um. If the two main characters are going to have sex, talk sexually or flirt all the time, that's one thing. But don't try to convince me that's a love story. That's not. There was very little substance to the relationship between these two women. It was pretty much a sexual relationship. Even the scene they flashed back to of when the two were in college together was sexual. When/where exactly do they actually fall in love or build any basis for falling in love? I'm telling you, it's like one of those laughable story lines that show up in the pornos that actually bother with story lines. There was this scene in the mall towards the end that really had me dying. I'm sure it wasn't meant to make eyes roll, but it just did, what, with the way I guess it was supposed to demonstrate Zabe's love for Sydney. The sad thing is, except for that stuff in the mall (because it involved one woman "saving" another, not a man saving a woman), the story this book tells is something I'd expect a man to conjure up.

I'll give it two stars because it wasn't necessarily a bad book, and I could make it through. But I probably made it through because it was short enough for that, and I was definitely getting sick of the book towards the end when I could see nothing more than the sexual was going to be established between Sydney and Zabe. It's interesting that some of the other reviewers don't like Sydney; Zabe got on my nerves more, maybe because she seemed more so like the character who doesn't know how to have a relationship beyond a sexual one. I did start to view Sydney as a moron, though, more than halfway through the book for a couple of her decisions. If you read it, I guarantee you'll understand why I felt that way. I think I read another reviewer here write that they don't know how she got a Ph.D, and I see why the reviewer said that.

No, I don't really dislike the book, per se. I think it's ridiculous/hysterical. It makes me laugh and shake my head every time I think of it. I definitely wouldn't want to recommend it to a heterosexual who wanted a glimpse at how lesbian relationships go or the internal struggle of a lesbian who is coming out or anything like that. I'd worry about giving them some incorrect ideas. But for porn-like or soap opera-like fiction, it's fine.

Edit: Also, someone--maybe the author--is obviously trolling these book reviews marking any negative review as unhelpful. There were three new reviews put up since I wrote mine a few hours ago from this edit, including mine, and the negative ones all got an "unhelpful" in that short amount of time. Another review here mentioned/joked that some of the positive reviews are written by the author's colleagues, and I'm seriously starting to wonder about that. As a couple of other reviews mention here, at the very least the book was poorly written. Sorry if someone can't stand to see that the book was anything other than wonderful in some people's opinions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny, steamy and sweet 23 décembre 2012
Par Craig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book really has mix of a lot of things. Some really funny moments and situations, including some electrifying banter between Zabe and Sydney. Some of those lines had me snorting out loud, they were so funny.

The context of the book is also sweet, as both woman gravitate towards each other. Sydney doesn't really love her boyfriend, and sticks around more for the hope of something than being truly happy. Zabe doesn't appear to have had something really real since she was with Sydney back in college. Her life hasn't exactly gone anywhere either, but she doesn't sit around moping about it. Once they reconnect though, they start drawing each other in. The friendship is something Sydney needs, but it's never easy, due to the constant sexual tension and feelings the two have for each other. Syd needs the wildness of Zabe to help her let go of the control she keeps of her life; Zabe needs the stability Syd can bring.

More than anything, when they eventually get intimate their bodies can't deny the truth of what they feel for each other. The passion and steaminess is right up there with the best I've read, but it never becomes crass. Zabe's semi strip tease and lap dance for Syd will leave you panting it's so hot! You simply can't create that kind of steam between people who don't have that kind of deep feelings for each other. It's just a pity there isn't a few more scenes, but it's not the end of the world.

It takes the usual couple of tropes for the ladies to realise that they need each other though, which I won't spoil. The book ends on an open sort of note, though I don't know if it's meant for a sequel or just to let the imagination of the reader fill in the rest. Suffice to say, this is a well written book that abounds with humour, romance and erotica. Well worth the read!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the leads was totally unlikeable and mean 22 janvier 2013
Par happykat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I kept trying to get into this story but was stopped by how thoroughly unlikeable one of the leads character, Dr Sydney Brisbane, was written. Besides her looks, Sydney had nothing to offer Zabe, her incredibly sexy and lovable ex college roommate/lover, who she abandoned after she graduated college. I was frustrated why Zabe (one of the more interesting lesbian characters I have read in the last year) humiliated herself by continually chasing and trying to charm Sydney, who so didn't deserve her. Sydney was written as total bitch, who was incredibly mean and cruel to Zabe almost up to the very end of this story and for that reason I would not recommend this story. I only gave this story three instead of two stars because I adored Zabe.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoroughly Enjoyed It - All Except the Ending 1 avril 2013
Par Jenifer M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I really liked this book. It wasn't long, and it wasn't particularly deep. But it was just detailed and titillating enough to keep me interested all of the way through.

Two ex-college roommates reconnect later in their young lives. Sydney, a newly minted psychologist, is seemingly straight - and somewhat straight-laced, at that. Her best friend from college, Zabe, lives nearby and reconnects with Syd. Zabe is a more fiery spirit - with a very hot bod' - that is as entrancing to Syd as she would be to any man.

Spoiler Alert

As it turns out, Syd and Zabe once had a sexual experience - right before they graduated from college. The rekindling of that attraction is the foundation of this story. My interpretation of the characters is that Syd is primarily hetero - but like many of us females, she's also attracted to women - and has managed to fulfill this desire by hooking up with Zabe in college. Good for her.

Zabe's proclivities are a little more problematic. She's dated men in her life, but she's actually more lesbian. Her pursuit of Syd is what drives the second half of this book. Syd and Zabe have several intimate engagements throughout the story and I enjoyed every single one of `em. I liked how the two women - liked the same parts on each other - as men would. These interludes, unfortunately, prevented me from finishing the book in a single sitting. Wink, wink.

As a suggestion, their love scenes could've been a little longer, a little more detailed - and a little more reciprocated. (Only one woman is satisfied per encounter.) And their very last tryst - a lap dance given by Zabe to Syd - ended, not with more intimacy, but with both women going to sleep, which didn't make a lot of sense to me. I was hoping for -- their best sex ever - but it finishes instead with a whimper.

Overall, I agree with some of the other reviewers. The relationship between Syd and Zabe is primarily sexual. There aren't a lot of other elements binding them together except a more satisfying emotional experience that goes along with great sex.

Syd is about to get married. And the author tosses in way too many plot twists - to keep this from happening. Even Syd's younger sister, Amber, tries to dissuade her - which, for me, was the most improbable since her knowledge of the relationship was supposed to be nil. Syd's background and her life situation - along with an absence of deep seated emotional sustenance between her and Zabe - combined to make the story's conclusion seem highly implausible. But that's just based upon my own perspective.

As a straight woman - who's managed to enjoy several same-sex experiences in my life - I really appreciated how the couple's strong friendship made their shared sexual encounters very satisfying. As a motivation, I actually found this to be quite credible. And if the story had left it at that - I think it would've worked a lot better for me.

In short, I liked everything about this book -- except for the ending. But that's to be expected since I'm probably not the primary audience for this work. I do believe, however - that there is a large unmet need - for stories that enable straight women, like me, to fulfill our own same-sex fantasies. "Date Night" certainly comes pretty close.

If you're looking for something light-hearted with some very passionate sexual encounters, then this is a book I'd highly recommend. Enjoy.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Save your money, stay away. 22 février 2013

I had hoped for a good book because the summary was interesting. Guess what? The summary is the only thing that is good about this book. The characters are very one dimensional, the drama is totally unnecessary and just no. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
