The Good Girls by Teresa Mummert Book Review


Buy link:



My life was meticulously planned and I refused to deviate from that path. While my peers were partying, I prepared for the future. Then a tragic event destroyed everything and I learned that while I was looking ahead, I forgot to live in the moment.

Starting over seemed impossible until I met Cara McCarthy, who lived every day like it was her last. She opened my eyes to a world of chaos and disorder. I loved every minute of it. She was also dating Tristan Adams, one of the most gorgeous men I’d ever seen.

The three of us became inseparable. Our parents were oblivious and soon lines became blurred, feelings began to grow, and someone’s heart was going to get broken. I hoped it wasn’t mine.

Full-length stand alone novel

Melanie’s 4-Star Review:

The Good Girls by Teresa Mummert is a wonderfully written story of self discovery and acceptance while finding true love amidst the harsh judgements and criticism of not only society but loved ones as well.

I thought that the author did a fantastic job exploring Cara and El’s story giving her readers a fair look at what each of their struggles were but also combining their lives into one beautiful and heartbreaking love story. What I appreciated most about this book was that it gives readers like me who is a “newbie” into the LGBT theme a perfect introduction. It showed great depth and insight into their struggles simply because of the person whom they chose to be with. The author took a great approach in setting Cara and El’s story a part from the expected, girl on girl action– Though for the most part, Teresa stayed true to the emotional aspect choosing to give us the nitty gritty of what a same sex relationship must undergo when acceptance is nowhere to be found, she also gives us a look into the sensual and quite frankly, sexy aspects of their relationship too. A nice balance to keep a reader’s interest peaked and eventually, sated.
I really enjoyed this book, reading it from the first to the last page just within hours. A perfect introduction to the F/F world, Teresa Mummert will definitely further spark your interest into exploring this genre much more.
