Katie Daniels has just been dumped by her fiancé when she finds herself seated across a negotiating table from Cassidy Price, a sexy, self-assured woman wearing a man's suit. When Katie Met Cassidy is a romantic comedy about gender and sexuality, and the importance of figuring out who we are in order to go after what we truly want.
That said, When Katie Met Cassidy is not only a pitch-perfect nod to Nora Ephron’s classic. Perri also achieves two distinct and impressive feats in this book. First, she offers readers a romance that has both feminine and masculine traits, but without any of the toxic masculinity we have come to tolerate and begrudgingly accept ... Second, Perri graciously allows readers who perhaps have never encountered people like Cassidy a glimpse inside her head ... I feel as though I cannot rave about this book enough ... Both a lighthearted romance and a deeply nuanced exploration of identity, When Katie Met Cassidy truly has it all.
...get ready to laugh, cry, and rediscover your faith in romance ... When Katie Met Cassidy follows standard rom-com tropes and standard gay-girl-meets-straight-girl tropes, but Perri’s clean writing style and superb wit carry the book beyond the usual and into something laugh-out-loud funny, sincere, and fresh ... Beyond its likeable protagonists, When Katie Met Cassidy draws a rich portrait of the lesbian community.
I was totally charmed from the first page of When Katie Met Cassidy by Camille Perri and utterly hooked by the end of the first chapter. Perri's lively and funny voice brings a fresh perspective to that familiar and beloved story of a single girl finding love in the big city.
