Best Lesbian Contemporary Romance: From the Boots Up by Andi Marquette

Quick and fast, like a country two-step, From the Boots Up is the story of how down-to-earth Meg was swept away by city-girl Gina. This is not a coming out story, both Meg than Gina have already a well-developed personality, and from what I gathered, Meg is also out from a relationship gone sour. When she meets Gina, not knowing she is the reporter who is supposed to spend some weeks at Meg’s father’s dude ranch, she is immediately attracted, and it’s clear the attraction works both way. Gina doesn’t hide her interest in Meg, and she is also more bold than Meg in reaching out for what she wants. In this, the old motto that city is faster than country, in everything, is confirmed. But it also true that country makes deep roots in your heart, and once Gina is trapped, it will be difficult for her to leave Meg behind.

Nice novella, not a fully developed novel length, and for that reason the romance maybe is let behind in comparison to the meet&greet of the two main characters; but that could be also seen from a positive side, you can read, and plenty enjoying, the story in just one sit, from beginning to the end.
