When Katie Met Cassidy

When Katie Met Cassidy

‘Sexy, entertaining and subversive’ Curtis Sittenfeld – Best Books of the Summer 2018 (The Guardian)

‘The lesbian romance novel we’ve been waiting forBuzzfeed

When it comes to Cassidy, Katie can’t think straight.

Katie Daniels, a twenty-eight-year-old Kentucky transplant with a strong set of traditional values, has just been dumped by her fiancé when she finds herself seated across a negotiating table from native New Yorker Cassidy Price, a sexy, self-assured woman wearing a man’s suit. At first neither of them knows what to make of the other, but soon their undeniable connection will bring into question everything each of them thought they knew about sex and love.

When Katie Met Cassidy is a romantic comedy about gender and sexuality, and the importance of figuring out who we are in order to go after what we truly want. It’s also a portrait of a high-drama subculture where bar rooms may as well be bedrooms, and loyal friends fill in the spaces absent families leave behind. Katie’s glimpse into this wild yet fiercely tight-knit community begins to alter not only how she sees the larger world, but also where exactly she fits in.

‘Tender, sexy as hell and laugh out loud funny’ Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, bestselling author of The Nest

It's part coming-of-age novel, part tantalising glimpse into the New York queer community . . . an enjoyable and moving story that's as much about community and friendship as it is about romantic love

Fun and fulfilling . . . [with] honest conversations about female identity and sexuality included throughout. A romance with a big heart and refreshing perspective
