    This is a wonderful collection, and I wish I could read it for the first time again. I was settling into a candlelit bubble bath late Saturday night when I got a notification from Apple Books that a book I had pre-ordered (and promptly forgotten about) was now available. I’d had a kind of meh day and was overjoyed at the good fortune of a sapphic surprise! I immediately dove into the first story and fell in love with Lyon’s writing.

I’d had a kind of meh day and was overjoyed at the good fortune of a sapphic surprise! I immediately dove into the first story and fell in love with Lyon’s writing. I finished The Waitress and the Werewolf with pruned toes, a craving for pancakes, and a full heart. I forced myself to pace my reading of the next two a little bit, and didn’t finish them all in one night, but I was sorely tempted. Each work invokes a different set of yearnings, all tied together with evocative language and sometimes painfully relatable characters. I will be seeking out Lyon’s previous works, and keeping an eye out for future ones for sure!

    I absolutely loved reading this collection - and will probably be seeking out the author's previously published collection soon. The first story was good, the second wonderful, and the third had me in tears. I enjoyed the characters and watching their relationships develop along unique paths. The writing itself was beautiful, and I think became increasingly powerful over the course of the collection. (I might also reread the first story, now that I have the rhythm of the author's writing, to see I absolutely loved reading this collection - and will probably be seeking out the author's previously published collection soon.

    *sighs romantically* A wonderful little collection of stories 💜 it was insane how perfectly tailored the waitress and the werewolf was, like the author had reached into my silly gay head and pulled out all of my werewolf/small town diner waitress fantasies and put them down on paper in a way that made sense. Seriously, such a fun collection, highly recommended. I’m definitely gonna check out the other works by this author.

    I was very excited to read this new collection by the same author who wrote The Soft Landing Collection, which I enjoyed reading last year. The stories in this collection are longer, which gives the author more room for plot and character development. I especially loved the very last story in this collection. Almost brought a tear to my eye. Great sophomore effort!
