TALLY - Book Review by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite

TALLY: A Polyamorous Romance


In Tally: A Polyamorous Romance by J.M. Northup, Tally Abram is a successful lawyer 
but when it comes to finding love, the cards seem stacked against her. She longs for 
a family of her own, but time is fast running out. She has just broken off with her married lover 
and decides to ask the closest people in her life, her married friends Lex and Ishkode Ackerman, 
to help father her child. Her proposal and the events that follow uncover cracks in a seemingly 
solid marriage between the two men, and also unresolved issues of jealousy and confused 
emotions. The three friends discover that love is sometimes not enough to become parents. T
he law is also against them. There is only one solution but it means heartbreaking sacrifices 
must be made, ones that threaten to tear the friendship apart.

This is a story that will touch every emotion inside you. Tally is a wonderfully 
strong protagonist; she is willing to put her own needs to one side for the sake of others. 
Lex is a charming, witty and loving character too and the relationship between Ishkode (Kode) 
is beautifully relayed to the reader. The dialogue is realistic to the personality of each 
character. I thought the story was going to be about surrogacy and the emotional 
complications attached to it, but the author has cleverly woven a subplot into the story, 
dealing with the legalities of the trio's situation and how it does not align with the changing 
dynamics of the modern family structure. There are many great conflicts throughout, making 
the story incredibly engaging. The rights of the LGBT community to raise a family, 
the misconceptions around polyamory, and the confusing emotions of jealousy are all covered 
with sensitivity. There are some adult scenes but I feel they were appropriate and necessary 
to drive the story forward.

Author Spotlight - Cecie Cenales

Not Taylor Made:

A little girl's story of abuse, madness, and chaos that couldn't consume her spirit.

This is the true story of ten-year-old Cecie Cenales who was tortured and abused by family members after her mother’s unexpected death. 
Cecie quickly learns that a mother’s unconditional love does not carry over with others responsible for her care. Cecie had to learn how to deal with her grandmother’s dementia that was riddled with paranoia and abuse, her father’s angry tirades and family friends who sexually abused her and being abused within the foster care system. 
With each adult she was passed off too, Cecie had to learn to live within the rules of her abusers or she was made out to be a liar. No one believed Cecie about the nightmare she was living, she had no one to turn to, but her tenacity to live and keeping her promise to her mother that she would succeed kept her alive—the idea that someday she would be loved unconditionally again.
