An Alisa Review: What It Seems by Sydney Blackburn


Rating:  4.25 stars out of 5

Michael’s straight and infatuated with a woman he worked with one day, over a year ago. But when he finally sees her again, he’s astounded that the woman of his dreams is a man in drag.

Darcy is ace and not interested in dating anyone, so he and Michael just hang out. A lot. When he needs to do an on-screen kissing scene, Michael is the best person to ask for help.

Michael soon discovers he isn’t as straight as he thought he was, and Darcy likes kissing him a little too much for someone certain he never would. Those are a lot of changes to accept, but they just might be worth it.

This was a wonderful story of self-discovery for both of the MCs.  Michael has spent so much time waiting to see Darcy again he almost loses his chance when they first actually talk.  Darcy likes making a new friend and they soon begin to date without noticing.

Michael and Darcy are both blind a bit to each other and their feelings a bit but grow a great friendship in that time.  I was able to see Michael spends his time coming to terms with his bisexuality and looking up any information he may need.  It was sweet to see Darcy find that he wasn’t as ace as he always thought but find the acceptance and answers he needed.  I loved watching both of these men slowly grow their relationship, even if they didn’t realize it at the time.

The cover art by Natasha Snow is great and I loved the visual of Darcy.
