Slow Dancing: A Novel by Elizabeth Benedict

Finalist for the National Book Award: A sassy, cynical professional woman’s notions of love—and its apparent impossibility—are thrown into question by a man who challenges everything she thought she knew
Though a talented young immigration lawyer, Lexi Steiner is in trouble. The legal organization where she works in Los Angeles may soon go under. Her habit of engaging in daring flings with charming—and sometimes not-so-charming—men is losing its luster. And her most intimate relationship of all, the one with her college best friend, Nell, is about to be threatened by two men: Nell’s serious new lover, and Lexi’s: a divorced investigative reporter who does the unthinkable and falls in love with her.
A fast-paced, sexy, and very serious novel about love and ambition, about bicoastal best friends and enduring lovers, Slow Dancing is a captivating look at lives and hearts in transition, moving forward one tentative step at a time.
