Hi! You seem to know a lot about lesbian books so I wanted to ask if you have a suggestion. The books I've read,even though they weren't advertised as such,included a lot of erotic scenes and that's not what I'm looking for. I just want a book with a happy ending that doesn't include men or cheating, and is about the relationship not sex.(Like I know sex is included in relationships and I don't mind like one sex scene but I'm demi so I don't want sex scenes without a strong relationship first):)

For sure! So you still wanted a romance book, but without the sex scenes, or did you want any lesbian books regardless of genre? 

YA might be helpful for this! From what I remember, these don’t have sex scenes in them, but I could be misremembering: 

Does anyone else have more recommendations?

Starting From Here by Lisa Jenn Bigelow

Sixteen-year-old Colby Bingham’s heart has been broken too many times. Her mother has been dead for almost two years, her truck driver father is always away, her almost girlfriend just dumped her for a guy, and now she’s failing chemistry.

When a stray dog lands literally at her feet, bleeding and broken on a busy road, it seems like the Universe has it in for Colby. But the incident also knocks a chink in the walls she’s built around her heart. Against her better judgment, she decides to care for the dog. But new connections mean new opportunities for heartbreak.

Terrified of another loss, Colby bolts at the first sign of trouble, managing to alienate her best friend, her father, the cute girl pursing her, and even her dog’s vet, who’s taken Colby under her wing. Colby can’t start over, but can she learn how to move on?
