    • I'm quite happy that a random thought that floated through my brain this week did in fact float through my brain. For it lead me to this book here. Granted, I've had the thought before; I just acted on it this time. I'm being awfully vague, no? Not communicating directly? The two main stars in this book had that problem. Figured I'd include something like. But let's move on.The thought that had floated through my mind was the idea that I wanted to read more books with non-traditional characters [...]


    • I've had this story in my Kindle library foreverand finally got around to reading it. What a pleasant surprise. Most of the story is about this accomplished woman who views herself as the ugly duckling based on something she overheard when she was young. Perceptions like this can stay with someone for the rest of their life manifesting in lack of social confidence and positive relationships.It's not a surprise then Emie has much to offer and fortunately meets a woman, Gia, who's most determined [...]


    • I like these Matinee romances. They are short novels that aren't too deep.This is the first book in the Amigas y Amor Series series by Lea Santos, and it was just what i needed at the time. It's a pleasant story of the two women wanting to be seen for who they are and doubting the other's ability to do so. Not real deep, no plot other than that. Likable characters and maybe a 3 on the hot and steamy front. Just a pleasant light book with decent editing and a happy ending.


    • Ms Santos has an amazing way of drawing readers into her story with the very first chapter. Emie's insecurities are so truthfully depicted that I cannot help but empathize with her. This is my third book I read from the author, and I am continually wowed! Impressive work.


    • About a 3.75at's right we are using quarter stars people!!!I actually really enjoyed this book. Both characters were well written if a little oblivious to each other's real feelings. What kept this from a solid 4 star was it kinda just to put it delicatelywham, bam, thank you ma'am-ed at the end.Other than i really enjoyed it amd will likely pick up another book by this author.


    • This is both the first and second time I've read this book here. Complicated, eh?First time I've read a book with this title (Look of Love) and by this author (Lynda Sandoval), second time I've read the underlying story, though with a different title and author (Little White Lie by Lea Santos).First off (I need to stop starting sentences with first), that funny looking title? Look of Love/Miradas De Amor? This is actually a split book - the first part is Miradas de Amor, second part is Look of L [...]


    • **Just finished my first reread of this one and loved it. My review stands!**I was chatting with a friend who shares similar reading tastes and said something like "I'm looking for a well written, light, classic romance that's got some good humor. What can you recommend?" I've been having a tough few weeks and just needed something to lose myself in for a bit. I'm hard to please when it comes to grammar and stuff like that My friend thought for a few minutes and said, "Have you read Lea Santos? [...]


    • What I liked about this book:-the juxtaposition of friendship and lesbian love, which is always a plus with me (in other words, Lesbians -- or bi women -- With Friends, as opposed to this idea so common in fandom that the presence of f/f threatens representation of platonic friendship)-pretty much a story all about Latinas; it's a pretty white-irrelevant story. The cultural details made me feel at home even though it's not my culture because I also come from a culture of English-with-something-e [...]


    • Los últimos capítulos fueron los mejores, en estos se dejaron asomar finalmente los sentimientos de ambas protagonistas, la sensiblería que admito que me gusta leer y se dejó de lado todo ese "deseo" que hizo que me quejara por tanto tiempo. A decir verdad, el entorno en el que se desarrolló primero la historia me resultó poco creíble, pero siento que al final se logró equilibrar. Me gustaron mucho los personajes, Emie y su cambio de pensamiento sobre sí misma, esa confianza que ganó g [...]


    • I’ve read enough romance novels to anticipate the formula. However, this was a fun and enjoyable read. Something I would qualify as the perfect beach book. The characters are enjoyable and often I found myself chuckling at their bumbling as the each misinterpret the others intentions.I would have liked to see more character development, and some additional interaction with the two “best friends” regardless a very enjoyable book.


    • Endearing, sweet and emotionally touching, Little White Lie is definitely worth readingonce you get past how unlikely it would be for a highly intelligent research scientist to be so easily duped by a co-worker tricking her onto the set of a trashy tv talk show. Once you get into the heart of the story (and it definitely has heart) you may very well find yourself melting a bit at how deeply these two women feel for each other, even if they each can be a bit, well, dense at times. Miscommunicatio [...]



    • A quick fun read. Cute, original story and good start to the series. I really enjoyed the relationships, especially the friendships in this book and series.
