    1. I have been enjoying a lot of the lesfic novellas, from Less Than Three Press, that have been released recently. It's a nice way to get to know some, new to me, authors. Unfortunately, I can't help but wish most of the time they were full length books. This novella was an exception to that. I thought this novella did a good job at summing up the whole storyline. I thought this book had a beginning, middle and end. It also didn't have that rushed feeling you can get in a lot of novellas. I did ha [...]

    2. > *The copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.* This is a fun, sweet, short story. I love that it revolves around art, that it touches the problems of being a minority in a white, male dominating society. Even the "love" story between Adina and Ester is unconventional and uncommon.

    3. You'd think you can't go wrong with an intense romance of two women of color and audacious art forgery with some politics in the background. But this is just too short? There's potential for a big, powerful novel here, and it feels wasted on a shorter form - the emotions and subplots have no room to play out fully. Still, the idea is incredible.

    4. This story just missed the mark for me. Honestly I gave it 2 stars because both mains were women of color in unconventional careers and roles. But I had to really stretch to finish this one. It gets WAY bogged down in the beginning with a ton of art lingo. I felt like I needed an art history degree to understand half it! Or at least a really strong interest in Baroque art! There was some chemistry between the main charactersbut it was mostly just about sex romance going on there. Just really did [...]

    5. The premise of Ester and Artemisia is wonderful–Adina, a brilliant black art professor, must decide whether or not to authenticate a painting forged by her forger crush/nemesis, Ester–, but the prose leaves something to be desired and the commentary on racism is superficial.That said, the chemistry between the main characters and the unique scenario they found themselves in kept me reading this short and steamy romance (about 20,000 words or a little more than 50 pages). The sex is not gener [...]

    6. The plot and all the parts relating to art were awesome, especially the irony of someone successfully fooling the system specifically because the people on top don't see/won't accept someone like her as having the skill. I would actually have loved to see this expanded into a full-length novel, something that explored both Adina and Jo's connection to Artemisia Gentileschi, that delved deeper into the social context of her paintings.I'm not a fan of the 'kiss them without asking and after initia [...]

    7. So I took a little jaunt through the LGBTQ section of NetGalley and this book’s cover blew me away. I immediately requested it in exchange for an honest review. I didn’t really read the blurb or check to see the length of the book so I was surprised that this wasn’t a lesbian historical romance or a full novel. I was not disappointed, however!This is a novella about an art authenticator and an infamous art forger. They are enemies but also drawn to each other over their love of the art the [...]
