Review: You're My Kind by Clare Lydon

Would you give your first love a second chance?  

Justine Thomas and Maddie Kind met at university and were the couple most likely. Everybody said so. That is, until Maddie left without saying goodbye.
Ten years later the pair are reunited at a friend’s funeral, and now Justine can’t shake Maddie from her life. But why is she back? Why did she disappear? And more importantly, is she interested in the whole cake, or just one last slice of Justine?
Strap in for a novel that deals with life’s big topics: love, death & cake. Clare Lydon is the queen of British romantic comedy, and this stellar lesbian romance is guaranteed to give you all the feels.

Review: Oh this book was so much fun. In case you can’t tell by the big cake on the cover this book does centre around a baking business so it comes with a warning to have some sweet treats to hand as you’re reading because you will be craving cake from the outset. 
This book begins with a group of friends in a similar way to four weddings and a funeral they are all attending an occasion and haven’t all caught up as one in a while, and there begins the similarities that this book has with real life. I loved how real this was. I am so fed up of reading romance novels with zero representation in them, this book literally has every kind of body and every kind of couple and I loved it. 

Justine was a very easy character to get along with because she was easy to identify with. She has been hurt in the past and so her guard is up but she is still craving that romantic connection at the same time as business success-hurrah! Maddie is a prickly character and we’re not sure whether we should trust her or not but she really really wants to do the right thing and be there for her friends.

I loved all the business building in this book but I loved the sex and romance more. Honestly this book got me so hot under the collar, it has been far too long since I have read sex scenes this good at the same time as having a strong storyline the carry me through. 

I really enjoyed this novel and I will definitely be reading more from Claire Lydon!
