As a turnaround specialist, Joslyn Simonini spends her days analyzing corporate profit margins and trying to keep her likeness from being turned into a voodoo doll by company employees. If she does her job well, they often lose theirs. So, it comes as a surprise when she finds herself being kissed one day at work. She's even more shocked to find out that the mysterious kissing bandit is a woman.

Not in the habit of kissing women, Joslyn tries to brush off the unintentional mistake. But before long, she's forced to examine the rush of emotions that accompanied the kiss, especially when she meets Raven Malvolio. At first, she needs Raven to complete her analysis, but she doesn't expect to need the friendship that Raven offers. When those friendly feelings escalate to something more, Joslyn's confusion and underdeveloped emotional range might ruin her chance at a relationship that could surpass even her dreams.

Uncommon Emotions takes a look at how someone can think she's happy with her life only to be surprised by the passion she's yet to feel.

Seriously. What is it with lesbians and their dogs? This one has five!

"She loves my dogs. Now that's sexy." LOL.

Okay, I'll stop, but seriously... what was a quick, entertaining read with lots of potential lost a couple of rating points in my book due to the dog and sports factor.... z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z....

There may be some slight spoilers ahead so this is the kind of review to read after you read for a better understanding of the book... or at least to address some of the characters and events that raise questions for me.

After flipping through 4-5 books gathering dust on my shelf for close to a year now to read over the Thanksgiving holiday, this one stood out with a voice that drew me in. That I did like. There is some real emotion here and the main characters have their moments of insight and development. At times I felt like I was reading the author's journal of her own coming out story. Some moments felt that real. And nice job making Joslyn's profession plausible.

But an Italian girlfriend who forgives a betrayal toward her family...?!?!?!? boy is this ever fiction. Family comes soooo first in that culture. So does religion, usually, but that's never brought up at all. Raven is more like a fantasy girlfriend... just doesn't get hotter than a smart and beautiful Italian lover. The utter perfection that sets in is a little cheesy... but hey, it's a lez romance novel... gotta suspend your disbelief in a major way and overlook the storyline flaws.... and just pretend bigtime that two lesbians with super duper healthy family relationships-- families who support their homosexuality to an astonishingly cheesy degree-- really do exist and they can even find each other... even in Italian culture.

I also found Joslyn rather confusing... not because she is supposed to be "straight" and coming out and that comes with its own confusion, but because she is never really physically described and is difficult to picture in your mind. Okay, so you find she is 5'4" and Italian. I just couldn't "see" her very well and I don't know if that was an intentional writing choice or if the author just struggled trying to make the main character straight and femme when she (Joslyn) is a complete dyke with some very masculine traits. I really got the feeling the author identified with Joslyn and couldn't really get beyond herself in that character. I just didn't buy into Raven's concern she is falling for a "straight" woman... a straight woman with 5 dogs, queer friends, a sports addiction, and one who is into cars and can even fix them. AND she runs her own business... successfully! How gay is all that?? LOL. Any real lesbian would look and see a full-fledged dyke there, no prob. If it was a conscious writing choice, it was a weak one. It didn't emphasize her detachment from her own body and sexuality for me... I just found her kind of void and hard to imagine.

I also found it implausible that Joslyn would still be questioning her sexuality when she clearly isn't really attracted to men. Obviously this is a woman way out touch with her own emotions and body and plenty of women arrive at 37 and much later in that fog... and I guess having a phd doesn't promise owning any real self awareness or common sense... but the distinction she experiences between men and women is so obvious that she would have to be a complete moron to not know she is a lesbian. And it's not just Raven... she is pretty wow'ed by that random kiss by Kelly, too. Trust me, she's gay!

And for the record... "lovely" can and will NEVER replace the sexiness of "baby." Joslyn sounds silly every time she says it. In fact, avoiding "baby" because Chase calls her that practically shows how much she really hates men. They do nothing for her at all. That whole Chase and Joslyn connection was just awkward and didn't feel so much like a straight transitioning to bisexual or lesbian... but more in the realm of heterophobia. Again, my sense is this writer writes too much from the heart and can't detach enough to know the mind of straight women very well. Nothing but dykes in this story. Probably just one.

It's not a bad read if you enjoy the cheesy romance stereotype where everything is so perfect in the end... what dyke wouldn't want to meet a girl like Raven...

This was my first book by this author and all I have to say is, it won't be my last! The characters are well written and developed and most of all, believable. I was laughing, crying and cheering for them to get together. I especially loved the personality of "Joslyn Simionini" I was impressed by her intelligent, witty, yet calm sarcastic comebacks to some really obnoxiously rude people and comments. Man, I wish I could think of things like that to say when I'm being verbally assaulted by some insensitive jerk. It's obvious the author is an amazingly intelligent individual who can pen a masterpiece with ease. I look forward to more of her enjoyable gems. I can't help myself, I'm a hopeless romantic and I Love a happy ending. I'm still searching for mine! But, With stories like these, I can live vicariously through the characters until MY princess comes along. Buy it, read it, you won't be sorry, I promise. And for the price? How can you not?

It's a bit of a stretch to call this story part of the 'VA' series, as it's linked to those characters through brief cameos by Elise and Austy. Still this is my favourite of the series so far. I loved both characters and their interactions. Raven's hesitation to enter into a relationship with a 'straight' girl rang true, as did the reasons why she went ahead anyway. Also loved the family interactions, though Jos's family was more fun. This story also features a forced drama at the end that was a bit overdone, and not really in keeping with what I expected of Raven's character but it was fairly brief and wasn't enough to take away from my enjoyment of the book.

I came across this book while randomly searching amazon.com for something to read. It popped up in my recommended items, for which I am extremely grateful. This is definitely one of the better romance novels I have read in quite some time. The characters are likeable, well thought out and have a three dimensional feel to them. I found that it was easy to identify with a number of the emotions that Joslyn has to come to grips with, but it was refreshing to witness the character moving through them without falling apart. Another major plus in my book is the fact that both women are strong, smart and successful in their own right.

I would highly recommend reading this story! In the meantime, I'll be looking for other Lynn Galli stories.

An amazing story that will definitely keep your attention. Well written with wonderful characters. Jos and Raven aware keepers, as well as both their families. This story is about trust and love.
