Waiting on Wednesday: When Katie Met Cassidy
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature where I highlight a soon to be released title that I can't wait to read.
This week's pick: When Katie Met Cassidy by Camille Perri
Due out: June 19, 2018
Synopsis taken from Amazon:
From the acclaimed author of The Assistants comes another gutsy book about the importance of women taking the reins--this time, when it comes to love, sex, and self-acceptance.
"Katie and Cassidy are a joy to behold: two whip-smart women grappling with desire and questioning their deeply held notions of love and intimacy. Perri's book is a real gift -- tender, sexy as hell and laugh out loud funny." --Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
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 barrooms may as well be bedrooms, and loyal friends fill in the spaces absent families leave behind. Katie's glimpse into this wild yet fiercely tightknit community begins to alter not only how she sees the larger world, but also where exactly she fits in.
