A deliciously disarming debut novel about a twenty-something Londoner who discovers that she may have been looking for love -- and pleasure -- in all the wrong places (i.e. from men). Julia has had enough. Enough of the sex noises her roommate makes. Enough of her dead-end government job. Enough of the one-night stand who accused her of breaking his penis. The only thing she hasn't had enough of is orgasms; she hasn't had proper sex in three years. So when Julia gets invited to a warehouse party in a part of town where trendy people who have lots of sex go on a Friday night, she readily accepts. And that night she meets someone: a conceptual artist, who also happens to be a woman. Julia's sexual awakening begins; her new lesbian life is exhilarating. She finds her tribe at queer swing dancing classes, and guided by her new lover Sam, she soon discovers London's gay bars and BDSM clubs . . .  and the complexities of polyamory. Soon it becomes clear that Sam needs to call the shots, and Julia's newfound liberation comes to bear a suspicious resemblance to entrapment . . .  In at the Deep End is an unforgettable and audacious odyssey through the pitfalls and seductions we encounter on the treacherous path to love and self. … (mer)

Julia has had enough.

The only thing she hasn’t had enough of is orgasms; she hasn’t had proper sex in three years.

So, when Julia gets invited to a warehouse party in a part of town where trendy people who have lots of sex go on a Friday night, she readily accepts. And that night she meets someone: a figurative artist, who also happens to be a woman.

She finds her tribe at queer swing dancing classes, and guided by her new lover Sam, she soon discovers London’s gay bars and BDSM clubs . . . and the complexities of polyamory.

Soon it becomes clear that Sam needs to call the shots, and Julia’s newfound liberation comes to bear a suspicious resemblance to entrapment . . .

Thank you Goodreads and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for a chance to read this book!!

This is the first LGBT book I have read. That I can remember at least. The beginning of the book was good funny and easy to get into. The middle was iffy and the ending was surprising. To me the book came off as a coming-of-age book. I think that is mostly because Julia is just starting to find out who she is. But it was an ok book. Happy reading everyone!! ( )

I was gifted the galley at the bookshop I work in, and I wanted to like this more than I did. I really, truly did. It was marketed to me in prepublication as a "fun queer sexy read" and it was only....sort of those things. Following a young woman who, in her adulthood, comes out as a lesbian, falls into a queer artsy crowd, and then endures an emotionally manipulative, abusive relationship, "In at the Deep End" doesn't seem to know which kind of book it wants to be when it grows up. The first act functions as a coming out narrative (which is important, even if it feels familiar), spurred on by the fact that our protagonist Julia has not had sex in literal years, has beyond mediocre sex with men, and then spends the night with a talented lesbian painter who serves as her "awakening" of sorts. She begins a community LGBT ballroom dancing class, and loves it, and I wish that this had been explored more; instead, the second act is about falling in love with a daring, devilish up-and-coming artist, Sam, who runs the relationship on her terms only. Some kinky sex, a lot of BDSM (which I suppose serves a narrative purpose but leaves a really, really terrible taste in my mouth, especially coupled with an abusive relationship) and a third act that doesn't commit to catastrophe or a happy ending but middles around somewhere between them, this book had the potential to be a lot of fun but doesn't really land well for me.

This is my first lesbian fiction. I literally, read everything and this was definitely a first. It's hilarious, raunchy, sad and a love story. Julia is a character that you really can care about and cheer on. She never has felt like she's had a successful love life. It really makes her feel depressed and anxious. One night, she decides to try something different. She goes home with Jane and discovers that being with the ladies is more her style. She meets Sam, who introduces her to polyamory, SM, underground sex parties and all sorts of things. I'm so glad my family didn't see what I was reading, it's very detailed. I thought the author did a wonderful job of really telling Julia and Sam's story even with all the intense sex. My copy said #NSFW and I would agree! ( )

This reminds me of the podcast “My Dad Wrote a Porno”

Hilarious, British, gay and really not that sexy.

It was bloody brilliant.
I laughed at so much in the book, and as someone who generally really mystery and fantasy I don’t usually laugh when reading - that’s for stand up and cat videos online.

I love that the relationships where not portrayed in some perfect light to make lgbt seem safe and comfy, that manipulative relationships are everywhere.
This felt read, raw and hilarious

A huge thank you to @hmhbooks for the reviewer copy

In at the Deep End centers on twenty something Julia who has been single and lonely for the past three years. She lives in the U.K. with her roommate Alice. Julia always wanted to be a dancer but after an injury she took a job as a civil servant. She thinks sex is overrated and wonders if she will ever find passion and true love. She also misses dancing since it is such a part of who she is.

After a disastrous date and sexual encounter with a guy she meets on a night out Julia decides to venture out and see if she enjoys dating women instead of men. She starts going to gay clubs and putting herself out there when she finally falls in love. However, her new love interest is polyamorous and wants an open relationship and she tells this to Julia pretty early on. Much of the storyline then revolves on Julia’s new relationship and the changes it brings into her life.

I was surprised at how quickly I read In at the Deep End considering my trade paperback copy is 320 pages long. The story is infused with humor throughout and I laughed out loud and sometimes I cringed but there was not a dull moment. This one is not for the faint of heart, the sex scenes are very graphic. Julia goes to a SM club at one point.

I loved how the author wrote the dialogue. The supporting cast of characters, Julia’s friends and family, all added to the story as they weaved in and out of it. There’s themes of love, family, friendship, obsession and manipulation in relationships and I wondered how it would all turn out. As the book came to an end I thought it could have been be done fifty pages or so sooner but it all wraps up nicely.

In at the Deep End was well written, funny, entertaining and at times raunchy and shocking and I really enjoyed it.

Sometimes I wished Julia would stop being so witty and let herself cast off into the world of raw desire.
