Review: Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: True Tales of Love, Lust, and Friendship Between Straight Women and Gay Men

Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: True Tales of Love, Lust, and Friendship Between Straight Women and Gay Men
Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: True Tales of Love, Lust, and Friendship Between Straight Women and Gay Men by Melissa de la Cruz
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When I picked up this book I thought it might strike some kindred chord, since I am a straight woman who has friendships with gay men. It did not. Only two of the essays I could relate to and they had better outcomes than my personal experiences.
It was interesting to read the essays from the gay man’s point of view rather than the straight woman’s. Still the book seemed to be missing something. I wasn’t looking for juicy details but I think I was looking for more of a -why- straight women have friendships with gay men or -why- they seek out friendships with gay men. Only a couple essays addressed this, most were tellings of actual events that brought a straight woman and gay man together or their lifelong friendship.
