I really, really, really wanted to give Funding Me a better rating, more like 4 stars, mostly because of its heroine, Blaze LeDoux James. She's feisty, fearless and fundamentally lesbian. She claims as much throughout the entire book, but at the novel's close, I was left with an ending that didn't compute. I won't give it away, but I was heartbroken and confused by Blaze. What was I supposed to ultimately believe about Blaze and her lover, Miss Felicity, after all? For those reasons, I had to give Finding Me a rating of 3.5. With all that said, there needs to be a sequel.
