This book is intended only for those 18 and older

*Disclaimer: I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Genre: Romance, LGBTQ


In The Open Window by Eve Francis, Morgan receives a sizeable inheritance that allows her to freely pursue her dream of writing and drawing comics. Her dream comic proposal and a chance encounter with a beautiful woman make Morgan feel on top of the world. When she finds out her new love interest is a rock star, Morgan is even happier. Val has left her past behind in order to fully live and follow her dreams of playing in a rock band. Her newfound relationship with Morgan is like a dream come true; Val has finally found someone who loves her for herself. But a tarot reading and a man from Val’s past spell betrayal. Can Morgan and Val’s relationship survive?


The Open Window by Eve Francis is a love story about learning to let the past go and learning that the future is what one makes of it. The characters are complex and face internal issues that many people can identify with. I did feel that the conflict between the characters was a bit forced; however, it didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the story, and the characters’ internal conflicts were realistic and engaging. I love that the characters are both creative types that have been brave enough to forge the path to their dreams. The romance is definitely hot and there are plenty of steamy scenes. The Open Window is a sweet romance, and I recommend reading it.
