The Lesbian Review says of Romancing the Inventor:
“Genevieve Lefoux is one of my favorite characters of all time, and I loved watching her navigate obliviously toward happiness. The sexual tension is delicious, and the payoff is sweet and wonderful, while not being terribly graphic. Fans of Carriger’s work will love this dive into a secondary character’s life, while first-time readers may very well find themselves picking up Carriger’s novels.”
