Stuck Landing by Lauren Gallagher


For months, acclaimed Wolf’s Landing director/producer Anna Maxwell has been nursing a crush on Natalya Izmaylova, a former Russian gymnast and current Wolf’s Landing stunt coordinator. When Anna witnesses Natalya’s very public breakup with her boyfriend, she can’t resist inviting her over for drinks to commiserate about love and all that nonsense. Commiseration doesn’t last long, and soon Anna’s in bed with the hottest woman she’s ever touched, living out fantasies she didn’t even know she had.

Despite the amazing sex, Anna wants to proceed with caution. They’re both newly single. They’re colleagues. And there’s the not-so-small matter of Anna’s biphobia.

Natalya won’t commit to someone who clings to ridiculous stereotypes, but they can’t avoid each other at work, and there’s no ignoring their chemistry. Anna’s defenses are slowly eroding, and Natalya is willing to give her another chance. But Natalya only has so much patience, and even scorching hot sex won’t keep her coming back forever. If Anna doesn’t come to her senses soon and let go of her prejudices — not to mention her insecurities — she’s going to lose the woman of her dreams.


Anna has just split with her ex of a long time relationship – the relationship’s been dead a long time, too. Natalya just dropped her boyfriend of the last year as well. They decide to go commiserate with some drinks when Natalya lets Anna know that she’s bisexual and very interested in Anna.

At first everything is great. They share a lot of common interests and a super hot chemistry. But Anna has been burned by a bi-sexual woman in the past and this clouds her ability to see Natalya.

Natalya feels judged by the straight and gay people of the world for being bi-sexual. She doesn’t feel safe in either world and that’s not acceptable with a lover.

Eventually Anna pulls her head out with some help from Levi and Carter and the two embark on a relationship.


I haven’t read a romance between two women before so I found this fascinating. I loved the dynamics of the gay v bi-sexual arguments as well as the different emotions the women showed.

I thought the smexy times were hot – which I was surprised about! – and thought the writing was excellent.

I loved seeing Levi and Carter get married as well – so sweet!

I recommend this to fans of the series and to f/f romance lovers.

4.0 of 5 stars
