Kat, a bartender at Artemis, is a free spirit. She likes hooking up with random hot girls whenever she wants. Getting serious is the last thing on her mind. But her best friend thinks it’s time for Kat to grow up and settle down, like her.

Lil, a local restaurateur, is new to the scene and becomes smitten. Lil’s stubborn, but Kat's skittish. And, like a cat, the more she’s chased, the faster she runs away. Kat’s got too many plans to settle down now—like that hot butch or the stripper who comes in with her friends… But Lil’s stubborn: Stubborn as a bull.

“Strong, like Russian bull. Right. More like bullshit. Or more like ‘stubborn like a bull.’ Shit… I mean, really, what is it with her? I just don’t get it.” I lifted the hose out of the caddy and added more Diet Coke to Carla’s glass. It was the middle of the day—too late for lunch but too early for happy hour.

Carla took a drink and gave me a piercing look. “What are you talking about? Or should I say who are you talking about?”

“It’s that dyke, Lily, or Lil. Whatever. She’s always coming in here, bugging the crap out of me. Like just before you got here. She snuck up to the bar while I was changing out one of the kegs and said something like, ‘Hey little lady, want me to help you with that?’ I practically cracked my skull open on the top of the beer cooler. And then she grins and says that ‘Strong, like Russian bull’ thing and makes a muscle. She makes me crazy.”

“I don’t know who you’re talking about. What does she look like?”

“Yeah, you know her. She’s got short brown hair. Not boy-short, just short and kind of wavy. She’s maybe in her late thirties, but she looks like she’s in good shape—like she works out or maybe plays some kind of sport. She wears jeans and T-shirts, mostly. You know who I mean. Lil.”

“Kat, you just described half the women who come into this place. So, what else does she do to annoy you?”

I grabbed a glass of water and told Carla all about it. The way Lil always seemed to be there when I looked up, but how she never bought a drink. And the way she bullied customers at the bar when they started getting the least bit rowdy. She was costing me tips.

“And there was that time last week when this cute butch was hitting on me, and Lil shoved her way in front of the woman and asked something inane, like if I knew what time it was, or something. The girl just backed out of the way and decided to go hit on someone else, I guess…and she was cute, too. I don’t know, Carla, the bitch is out to get me, but I didn’t do anything to her. I swear. Hell, I don’t even know her.”

Carla started to grin.


“Geez Louise! Can’t you tell when someone’s flirting with you? Or has it really been that long?”

“Flirting? Well, she’s not my type,” I said. I gave Carla a wilting look and went back to doing the prep work for the evening. Flirting? Is that possible? If it was, it was like the way boys used to flirt with girls in third grade. I was seriously waiting for her to punch me in the arm—and then I’d have to smack the crap out of her.

I wiped down the bar after restocking, and then I began preparing the drink garnishes and gave Carla another refill.

“You know, Kat, I’ve known you for seven years now, and I still don’t know what your type is. Just who are you looking for?”

She put a ten on the bar, and I leaned over and gave her a kiss. “Maybe I’m not looking for anyone. Do I have to be?”

“I don’t know what I’m gonna do with you.” Carla shook her head on her way out. She opened the front door to bright, glaring sunlight and waved as she stepped outside. The door shut behind her, wrapping the place in twilight shadow again, the way a bar should be.

    For the most part, this story is told in first person and from Kat’s point-of-view. However, there are parts of the story told in third person, those being from Kat’s bestie, Cathy, and Lil’s point-of-view. It’s not a writing style I am familiar with but D.L made it work extremely well! It allowed me to get to know three very likeable characters, firsthand.

    Kat is a lady who knows what she likes, and that’s a smorgasbord of women to choose from, and none who want to tie her down – figuratively and literally. Kat identifies as an alpha female and this made for a yummy hook-up complete with a jolly good spanking, yum! This story has more than one explicit scene, which is a delicious treat for those who enjoy a spicy read.

    Kat’s best friend Cathy tries to convince her it’s time to settle down. Kat’s not ready to hear it and because of that she can’t see what’s right under her nose. Until her friend interjects. Everyone needs a bestie like Cathy.

    Due to the professions of our leading ladies there’s a lot of bar and restaurant talk, which will appeal to readers who enjoy reading about food and beverages. I love discovering how titles come about and, while I thought this one was self-explanatory, it’s not quite so black and white.

    This is a short story with plenty of spank bank material and a feel good happy-ever-after. If you’re looking for a spicy book that’ll make you hot and make you smile, you can’t go far wrong by picking up a copy of Stubborn as a Bull.
