Out now- Dancing with Venus by Roscoe James

I have it on good word that this book might be interesting. I haven't read it, but am getting it today or tomorrow depending on if I feel like going through the buying process today or not. Yes, sometimes I'm just too lazy to do the whole process.

It just came out this week.

Dancing with Venus

by Roscoe James




Blues is Jessica Butler’s life. No performer romances the audience better. Unfortunately the audience is the only thing twenty-eight-year-old Jessie is romancing these days. Her life is an endless string of club dates with the occasional male groupie thrown in to stave off complete isolation. Careful to never surrender more than her body, matters of her heart remain a mystery, even to her.

On the outs with her family, she’s been running from gig to gig for over a year. When her little sister’s wedding invitation finds her in Chicago Jessie realizes it’s time to stop running. Unwittingly she starts a pilgrimage that turns the ever elusive matters of her heart into a train wreck.

Marcella Dionysius keeps company with the dead Europeans. Instead of bars and clubs, Marci’s venues are concert halls and recording studios. She’s a world-class cello player, a woman that loves women, and the only daughter of a very powerful man who wants just one thing before he dies. An heir.

Marci is an exotic Greek goddess next to Jessie’s pale, lanky, Midwestern form, and Jessie hates her sister’s best friend immediately. She hates her even more after their first kiss. Because this time running isn’t an option.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Female/female sexual practices.

What's really sad is that since I haven't done it in a while, I went scouring around the other epubs for some new f/f to put up and promo, but found nothing.

LVLM, I'm really looking forward to your thoughts in this book when you read it. I considered it yesterday. After reading the excerpt, I'm on the fence about it.
