Nicky is a talented draughtsman, with a teenage son and a very complicated and scary past. Lauren is a successful architect, new to the firm and absolutely gorgeous. The women are really attracted to each other and after some initial flirting they have some very hot dates together that end with some great sex. Lauren is not out though and the main problems they encounter are related to that. I found that aspect of the book very interesting as it seemed strange that she felt she couldn’t come out to her mom or at work in this day and age. She had good reasons though and her struggles were well written and made for a fascinating read. I really wanted her to find the strength to be open as her relationship with Nicky was so dependant on it. They made a great couple and the love and tenderness between them was evident. The love scenes were beautifully constructed and felt very real and true.
The other part of the story, regarding Nicky’s ex boyfriend, Michael, was scary and horrible and the threat was there throughout. The tension was well done and Jan Gayle knows how to crank it up a notch when required. Nicky was such a great character – strong, intelligent, feisty and very sexy. She had been through so much for her age but had managed to make so much with her life. I wanted her to be happy at last with a woman who really loved her. I really enjoyed this book and would love to find out what happens next……
