Walking Boots by Harper

I thought this story started out with a lot of promise. Blair walks into the room she shares with Jo and discovers her roommate in bed, naked and having sex, with fellow Gamma Gamma and snob extraordinaire Bootsie. This encounter leads to some major changes in Jo and Blair’s relationship. Changes that Jo believes come from Blair’s homophobia. The truth is that Blair is jealous.

The plot itself was fine, as was the writing; however the characters just didn’t seem to have the chemistry they should have had. There were a few minor grammatical issues but nothing really distracting. I became annoyed with the constant use of “girl” instead of “woman” when referring to the main characters. They were in college, not grade school. But, to be honest, that’s one of my personal pet peeves so not everyone will share my view on that. There were a few other things that stood out to me as not right but they were very small and I think I may have been in a more critical mood than usual while reading this one. For example, the author states a couple of times that they’ve known each other most of their lives but they only met in high school and the story takes place during college. Not major issues but things that stood out to me in my crappy mood. I’ve been sick the past week or so and it makes me cranky.
