Staff Reviews


In her debut novel, Morgan Rogers melts us away with this modern queer love story. We are proposed with an almost anti-uhaul lesbian premise: married after one drunken night together in Vegas and live on opposite ends of the country. Our protagonist Grace Porter must face the consequences while battling her own post-grad identity crisis. Honey Girl tenderly shows us queer love through its romance, found families, and the act to love oneself.

— Andrea

"HONEY GIRL is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved every moment of it."
-- Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal


When becoming an adult means learning to love yourself first.

With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, twenty-eight-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls' trip to Vegas to celebrate. She's a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn't know...until she does exactly that.

This one moment of departure from her stern ex-military father's plans for her life has Grace wondering why she doesn't feel more fulfilled from completing her degree. Staggering under the weight of her parent's expectations, a struggling job market and feelings of burnout, Grace flees her home in Portland for a summer in New York with the wife she barely knows.

In New York, she's able to ignore all the constant questions about her future plans and falls hard for her creative and beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she's been running from all along--the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adulthood.
