One of the best i ever read ! Great ! - Ysgann - Jan-30-2008

I'm a librarian - I read a lot. So believe me when I say this is a book that you can read over and over again. It pulls at your heart, it'll make you laugh out loud, and the chemistry between these characters is out of control. - Kim - Feb-06-2008

Amazing story she is amazing. I feel like these characters are real. I really love the dialougue and inner any story that reminds me of Olivia Benson and Abbie Carmichael is a winner - J - Feb-07-2008

Hands down one of the most readable and re-readable stories out there!! I'd love to see more from this author. - Balmain - Feb-07-2008

Gah! This was one of the best things I've read online. The charaterization was AMAZING. Sometimes once the two main characters figure out what is going on between them the story gets dull. But not this. I was on the edge of my seat until the end...and then it did end :(!!! I request a sequel!! Please do yourself a favor and read this amazing story! - Amanda - Feb-23-2008

The best!! - jojo - Jan-29-2010

Wow! I'm finding it hard to figure out what to say. This is not the kind of work I usually read but I found it riveting - it was self-aware but not self-conscious, and didn't fall into the sort of clichés that seem so common in lesbian fiction. A lot of thought went into this, and it shows. Brilliant portrait of a complicated set of relationships. - Asterix - Feb-14-2010

Wow! By far the best story I've read on fan fiction so far. Bravo!!!!! - Anonymous - Mar-14-2010

I like this book. Reread it many time. thank you dabkey. - deverax - Mar-21-2010

It's one of my favorite stories. When I first read it, I kept coming back to it over and over cause I loved Caidence! Awkward but beautiful. Smart choice on the part of the author. All the characters have their own charm but the two main characters really draw you in. - Anonymous - Mar-21-2010

I have read this story at least twice a year since it came out. I'm just starting to read it again and can't keep my mouth shut about how awesome it is. Read it! - Wizard Dill - May-01-2011

Wow. I never expected to like a story that involved actors. This is one of the best stories I've read so far! The characters are rich, colorful and real, and the story is very complete-there are no unanswered questions like many of the stories here. And, like someone previously mentioned, you won't tire of the story after the couple gets together. This could easily be turned into a series of stories if the author so desires. - TKD Vixen - May-26-2011

I fell in love with Caid and Robyn's story. I miss them now that I'm done reading. This could be the makings of a great film. If I could I would do it! - Romantic fool - May-31-2011

I really loved this story. Awesome job - sassy123 - Jun-20-2011

It read just as wonderfully the second time as it did the first. The characters stay true and the story's twists and turns make for one amazing ride. Thanks dabkey. - Anonymous - Aug-08-2011

near perfect story... i has held up for repeated rereading and few stories do - Anonymous - Aug-14-2011

This was exceptionally well written, with good character development and nice pacing. I read it and returned to it a few years later and enjoyed reading it as much the second time as the first time. - xenalives - Aug-29-2011

MAKE IT A MOVIE!!!!!! Brilliant!!! :-) - Leilani - Aug-31-2011

I love this story! It is my go to book when I need a good romance, and I have read it repeatedly over the past few years. I was so excited when I found the published book and now I have added it to my collection! I love the characters and dialogue, especially Caid's inner thoughts. Thank you, dabkey, for a heartwarming as well as humorous story. - drake - Aug-31-2011

I have read this 3 times now and I still find nothing to fault. It is simply a wonderful story and very well written. - Peacetat - Oct-10-2011

READ IT and you won't be disappointed. OH and i laughed so much at Liz's antics...LOVED IT...10 ... - braniac - Jan-06-2012

What an incredibly good tale. I can see why so many people recommended it. Great plot and characters that kept you wanting to keep reading more. - uber goober - Jan-31-2012

one of the best ive ever read .. it has topped among my 3 favourites... ijust love robyn - walzee - Apr-22-2012

The best lesbian romance novel ever! I loved reading it. - stonewalldog - May-11-2012

Very good story I find myself going back to read it over and over. - Anonymous - Jun-29-2012

This was a remarkable story. There was real climax, perfect romance and feelings. A story that makes you want to go back and read it all over again. I know I read some of the scenes more than a few times. - AW - Jul-17-2012

Loved It!! A must read.. - Anonymous - Aug-15-2012

one of the best ever.. this and denial by omega13.. the best of them all - Anonymous - Sep-01-2012

Going through the recent 2011 top list; I have decided to recommend this story a second time. This story is on top 5 of my list of all the stories I've read in my 19 years of life. Not to mention this novel seems to be only one or two to have been on the top list of xena-fiction forever as well, since 2005. When you have friendship, Anger, longings, passion, all locked up in one same jar called love, it is bound to be a great story. Just simply amazing. But sometimes I do wish I could read it from Robyn's point of view as well (as in both of em) - Anonymous - Sep-12-2012

A wonderful story that I've read about ten times already. The characters are three dimensional and the plot is really interesting. There is also a book available which has only minor changes but to support the author of this great story I can only encourage everyone to buy it. Unfortunately the author hasn't published anything else. I'd buy it right away.

I don't know how many times I've read that amazing beautiful story since I found it here years ago. Thank you very much for sharing it with us! - Ayla - Oct-05-2012

Still one of my all time ever favorites. I even bought the e-book. Wishing for a sequel... - Peg - Oct-07-2012

love this story. just wish it was a bit longer. could have read another 300 pages of Caid's thoughts. - Anonymous - Feb-11-2013

One of my all time favorite stories I've ever read. This story has it all - fun, romance, great lovemaking scenes and incredibly likable characters. This is definitely in my top 5 for favorite original story. - happykt - Mar-02-2013

This book is my favorite of all time!!! I have read it 5 times and it still makes me feel giddy with just a few simple phrases. It's got everything a girl could want. Action, Romance, Humor. I just can't say enough. This author is amazing and I am very much looking forward to a sequel. SO PLEASE PLEASE MAKE ONE!! PLEASE I"M BEGGING YOU - katie of ohio - Apr-10-2013

I love this story. So much so that I bought the book. It's got emotion and all the fears and joys that come with loving someone unexpectedly. - Yankees1951 - Jun-04-2013

this was one of the first longer stories i read here.. i have reread it twice now.. i loved the friendly banter between liz (whom i suspect of being an uber dite) and caid.. i adored the banter between caid and robyn.. the only thing i would change about the story is the ending.. there are so many things left unexplored.. maybe the other will some day grace us with a sequel.. because this story is screaming for one.. or is it just me?? - xtra dog - Jun-08-2013

oops.. sometimes i type too fast.. i meant to say: maybe some day the author will grace as with a sequel.. *blushes* - xtra dog - Jun-08-2013

Phenomenal job with the story. Absolutely loved the characters and the writing, best I've read in a long time. I couldn't stop laughing at certain parts and lines. Just so well done! - Anonymous - Dec-14-2013

Loved it! The back and forth of "does she like me?", "is she into women?", "did I say too much?" was titillating. The drama and plot buildup were spot on. Enjoyed the characters and the believability of the story line. - Anonymous - Mar-19-2014

This is such amazing story!!! Over the years i've read this and everytime i'm moved at the deep characters and plot..

I LOVED IT! Very sweet and the characters had HUGE chemistry, not a lame moment while reading this. I really do hope we will see more of Robyn and Caid soon. And seriously, GIVE IT A TRY! I bet you´ll be hooked at chapter 1 ;) - DaniDalt - Jan-15-2015

Ummm I haven't read a great story like this in a looooong time!!! Wow!! Great writing,more at storyline, great characters, amazing job. I was sad when the story ended!! Wish there was more of these characters!! - Nic - Jan-25-2015

Love the characterization and realism. - michCLiz15 - Apr-08-2015

I loved this book! The progression of the characters and their changing relationships was well written. The story itself was well conceived with a slightly out of the ordinary plot. Thank you for sharing your tale. - Kelly Aten - Jul-14-2016

The first time I saw this story, I ignored it. I'm so glad I went back to read it. It was so awesome! - Anonymous - Sep-04-2017
