Reviews When Katie Met Cassidy

  • Nikki (Saturday Nite Reader)
    3.5 stars rounded upLooking for a quick summer read, this may be your jam. I read this book in one day and loved the immediate connection between Katie and Cassidy. Katie Daniels is off the heels of a bad break-up with her fiancé, Paul Michael (or something like that, who cares he stinks) and crosses paths with Cassidy Price. Cassidy is immediately intrigued by Katie even knowing she isn't her "type." There is an immediate curiosity and connecti...

    Review on my blog • Twitter • Instagram Rep: f/f romance, lesbian mcI was sent an arc from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewMy feelings for this book are, complicated. I'm not sure where to begin.Katie has just gone through a breakup, and she has a new job at a law firm. She meets Cassidy, who is higher up in the company and kind of an office romance begins. Katie thinks she's straight, but she doesn't later say she's bisexual....

    If this book featured a heteronormative couple, it would get absolutely zero press (and would have a way lower rating). Because it is not a good book at all. The characters are superficially drawn and the relationship between them advances at an absurd pace; things that should pose significant barriers and obstacles to their relationship (e.g., conservative/disapproving family, first same-sex relationship for one character after decades of never ...

    I debated whether to give this 2 stars or 3 stars. I did binge read it in about 3 days but kept noticing aspects of the book throughout. I also would not reread. This book was meant to be an LGBTQ novel but the structure of the writing screamed erotica to me even though no erotic scenes occur. One thing I noticed throughout the book was the lack of character development and the lack of insight into the character's history. For example, though it ...

    I loved this book! And as the Katie in my own relationship, I didn’t know how much I needed this book until I was crying at the end. When Katie Met Cassidy is as funny, charming, and romantic as your favorite Nora Ephron movie. I fell in love with every single character, and I was rooting for the relationship from the moment they met until the very last page. Treat yourself to this smart, sexy, and sweet love story. It’s a delight.

    When Katie Met Cassidy is one of those special books about love that make you fall in love as you read them. I swear, butterflies in your stomach and all. Katie is a 28-year-old attorney originally from Kentucky whose fiancé just left her for her friend. On one especially messy day she meets Cassidy, the opposing counsel, a woman who doesn’t stop to fascinate her. The two get a drink, and Katie, the always perfect people pleasing girl that she...

    I loved the characters so much - it's a romance, so I know we're not going to get to see them fall in love again, but I would love to see these two have more adventures!
  • Kate Vocke
    I was excited when I found out I won an advanced copy of this book - I tend to read a lot of the same books and I try to step out of my bubble and read things I normally would not have heard of - and I find myself usually really glad that I did!I hadn't read The Assistants, by Camille Perri, but it's definitely on my TBR list. This one sounded interesting and it was definitely a great story. I do think it got a little boring in parts, and the cha...
  • Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
    *I received an ARC of this book from the publisher*When Katie Met Cassidy is a different romance, with a different ‘finding yourself’ angle completely. I loved how Katie defended herself to Cassidy’s friends by saying there was no label she felt comfortable with - she didn’t know if she liked girls, but she knew she liked Cassidy.Full review to come
  • Michelle Ruiz Andrews
    After a lifetime of straight love stories, how sweet it is to read a rom-com about two women falling for each other!!! Perks include: no tired bro bullshit; hot queer sexiness. Like Call Me By Your Name, which I also loved, WKMC is blissfully free of politics, death, violence and apart from some sideways glances and one character’s fear of judgement from outsiders, discrimination. Like most straight love stories, the romance between Katie and C...

    Try to wipe the smile off your face when you read this gem.
  • Erin
    I think there could be a lot to like here--there are a diverse group of people in the LGBTQ community that are portrayed here, and I honestly think that Perri based the bar and the people off of real life counterparts, which is great. But honestly? This fell so flat. There's very little character development, we don't really know what has these two attracted to each other, and the inevitable fight lasted about 5 pages and some of that was just re...
  • Anna
    Actual rating 2.5I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest reviewSo disappointed that I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. The premise of an LGBT Rom Com instantly drew me in as I have never read this genre of book, especially not with two women as the love interests. I was hoping for tears, laughter, romance and this book just fell short of that for me. When Katie Me Cassidy is an easy read and...

    I received a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway and it has not affected my review.This is a charming f/f romance, even if it's not being marketed as genre fiction. I loved the opposites-attract plot as Katie and Cassidy meet and each can't get the other out of her head, even if they come from completely different worlds.This is absolutely not my area of expertise, so I apologize if I use any inaccurate or hurtful vocabulary, but I'd like to cla...

    Katie is a 28 year old lawyer who just found out her fiancé, Paul Michael, cheated on her with her best friend. Cassidy Price is also a lawyer who enjoys plenty of one night stands with women and likes to wear men's clothing. The two of them meet as opposing counsel during negotiations for their respective clients. As they interact with one another, it's obvious there is a special connection between the two. But do they really have a shot at lov...

    I received an ARC of this book from Penguin's First to Read Program in exchange for a review.I'm not really sure how I feel about When Katie Met Cassidy. I did enjoy that it was a light read and there were many moments I loved. It's a novel that will make you feel good and I think the core of the story will resonate with a lot of people. But there's also zero depth here from the characters or the story. There are hints at it, but all the big mome...
  • Lily Chalkley
    I mean, I finished this book in a day so I definitely liked it - you definitely want them to fall in love, but you don’t really know how they do. Cassidy is a halfheartedly developed womanizer, and both Katie and Cassidy’s identities become too wrapped up in each other before you really know them. As for their relationship it’s more sex than anything else, which was great at first and then got to a point where it was just like “shouldn’...
  • Caitlin
    Received free from Penguin First to Read, my thoughts are my own.A coming into your own sort of romance, where Katie has a life of quiet disappointment, until everything falls apart... and then she meets Cassidy. Cassidy is nothing Katie expected, but sometimes challenging your expectations is a necessary step to a better life.Cassidy has some character traits I don't like, but overall she's good for Katie, especially after she undergoes some per...

    A Southern girl in the big city, Katie thinks she is living the New York dream life with her job as a high powered lawyer and a dashing fiance, until he dumps her for one of her friends. On a whim she decides to take a woman she meets at work up on her offer for a drink. I'm not generally a romance person partly because I find the issues keeping people apart to be fairly contrived, but in this case it made sense so it wasn't a bad read. It fit th...
  • Julia Spence
    3/5 stars... the characters were likable, but I felt like they could have used more development. We never learned about their lives before meeting each other, which I think could have added more to the story. I am happy to read about a female love story, something I've never read before. The story was told from the perspectives of both sides of the relationship (Katie and Cassidy) which definitely added to the story, as they had two different bac...

    I was so excited about this book since I loved The Assistants and no idea the author even had a new book out. I felt like this one, however, fell flat compared to the first one. I didn't like the characters and didn't get to know them, the plot and story didn't seem realistic or believable, and I didn't have much fun reading it or learning the story behind Katie and Cassidy.
  • Melissa
    This was a cute, light read. Too light, really. I never felt like I got to know these characters or understand why they felt the way they felt, did the things they did, etc. But I can't say I didn't enjoy it exactly, and it's an extremely fast read. I read it on my Kindle and was shocked to see it was 272 pages. Thank you to NetGalley and G.P. Putnam's Sons for the advanced copy.
  • Tracey
    I enjoyed reading this book. There were chapters that were dedicated to the thoughts of either Katie or Cassidy and how they each perceived the situations that arose. I found that each of them had some struggles to overcome with accepting their feelings for each other, and that seemed very realistic.It was a pretty quick read, but kept my attention.
  • Mackenzie
    I am giving this book 3.5 stars. The story is good. I haven’t read anything like it before. 😀

    The f/f rom-com I've been waiting for. Great side characters.
