Overview


In the City of Angels, K9 police officer Chris Bergstrom keeps herself safe by following her instincts. Across town, Sarah Pullman also lives by her instincts since that horrible day when her life was almost snuffed out. When they meet, their attraction is stronger than anything they’ve ever experienced. But Chris’s black-and-white world view clashes with Sarah’s all gray world of identity confusion and distrust. They’ll need more than their gut feelings to navigate the fragile relationship they so intensely desire. Set against the turbulent backdrop of Los Angeles during fire season, Chris and Sarah struggle with the realities of their pasts and the necessity of defying their long-standing beliefs. In order to overcome their conflicts, they will have to step out of their self-imposed cocoons, take a real look at themselves, and find the strength to walk through the fire.

Girolami (Cut to the Chase) pairs uptight K-9 police officer Chris Bergstrom with directionless trust fund baby Sarah Pullman in this undemanding romance, which is set in contemporary Los Angeles amid raging wildfires. A meet-cute over blackberries at Whole Foods leads to quality banter and swift physical intimacy between the two women. They bond over Sarah’s volunteer work at a wild animal refuge and their mutual failure to meet familial expectations, but the family issues are one-dimensional and inadequately addressed. The couple’s strong attraction only highlights the dullness of their quickly resolved series of conflicts between Chris’s rigid moral code and Sarah’s past minor infractions of the law, though the K-9 details add welcome interest. The detailed sex scenes are hot but the romance is sadly less fiery, marred by easy solutions to their problems that narrate rather than demonstrating character growth. (Mar.)
