"A very very lovely, exciting and crying my eyes out kind of experience" - anonymous reader.
After outing herself to a homophobic manager, Yvonne feels unwelcome and out of place at her work's Christmas party... until she meets Phoebe, an aspiring cellist who happens to be the boss's daughter. Yvonne impulsively acts on her attraction to Phoebe, and that's when things get complicated.
Although Phoebe sees herself as straight, a tentative relationship develops between the two. But it's hard maintaining a closeted romance, and both of them are tested when tragedy touches Phoebe's family. Phoebe has to balance her feelings for Yvonne with her career, her conservative father and grandmother, and the mother who abandoned her as a child. Meanwhile, Yvonne has baggage of her own to deal with.
The consequences are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, often steamy, and always touching. Set in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
Please note: there are two versions of this book available. The "18+" version (purple cover) has a fair bit of sexually explicit content including occasional mild BDSM. The version you're looking at (blue cover) is a less-explicit version for those who prefer their romance that way, although it still involves some adult content. If you're not sure, I recommend checking the free previews before buying.
