Blue Connected With My Emotions
4.5 out of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure going into this one what I was getting into, but I love Cat Gould’s narrations and honestly – I had a good feeling just based on the cover. I didn’t even read much of the book description or the synopsis – I dove in head first. Like a rookie contractor unsure of what I was getting myself into.
Thankfully, my dive paid off. This book was golden. Blue was able to write a book that made me smile throughout and a few times brought tears to my eyes. And at one point (no spoilers) LOTS of tears. The Number 94 Project was full of beautiful characters that jumped off of the pages. Blue wrote these deep and thoughtful people and had them doing and helping in all sorts of different ways. Each character brought something new and unique and each one felt perfectly picked to be both in this story and on Gaylord Street.
And speaking of deep characters and deep back stories – the addiction/addict mother one… wow, Blue nailed it but it was intense at times. There were a few times when they were talking through the “darker” times that really had me choked up. But also had me angry and frustrated like she would have been. Blue could connect with me and my emotions on this one.
Overall, I thought that The Number 94 Project was enjoyable from beginning to end. The writing was excellent and the character creation was easily the best part of the plethora of tools in Blue’s tool-belt.
Renovation takes a sexy turn when a cute country girl rocks up with a tool belt and plans that throw the whole gay neighborhood into disarray in this light-hearted lesbian romance.
When handywoman Jorgie’s uncle leaves her an old house in Melbourne, it’s a dream come true. Sure, 94 Gaylord Street is falling apart, and she has to deal with her uncle Bruce’s eccentric friends thanks to his unusual will.
But that’s okay. She’ll fire up her power tools and turn the dilapidated terrace house into a desirable inner-city pad. Then she’ll sell up and head home to the country.
Jorgie hasn’t counted on falling for cute neighbor Marta, who’s found her heart-home among the tight queer-community of Gaylord Street. Between mugs of too-strong tea and Jorgie’s lack of a working shower, the two forge a surprising connection.
But what happens when the renovation’s complete? Can Jorgie really just toss aside her tool belt and saunter away?The Number 94 Project by Cheyenne Blue
