There’s only so long you can hide who you are.
Flick Lindenwood, fresh from college, has returned home to the suburban haven of Green Valley, back to society…and the source of her heartbreak. Four years ago Elodie Hamilton savagely broke her heart, and Flick has no intention of letting her pretty ex get back under her skin. As far as she’s concerned, she and Elodie never happened.
But Elodie has other ideas.
Afraid to come out, Elodie chose to destroy her relationship with Flick rather than let her family know who she was. But now she wants to right the wrong she did—if she can only find the nerve, and if she can convince Flick to see past the pain she caused.

About the Author
I have been writing for ten years and first got into erotic romance through the Romantic Novelists' Association New Writer's Scheme; they critiqued my debut novel "The Hand He Dealt", which was published in June 2011 and was nominated for the Joan Hessayon Award.
I live in Yorkshire with my husband and two extremely bratty tuxedo cats. When I'm not writing I spend my time watching horror movies, listening to rock music, travelling to new places and trying out new restaurants.

The door of the Dodge Charger slammed behind her as Flick Lindenwood walked up the driveway to the house, dragging her wheeled suitcase after her.
It was exactly as she remembered. Pansies and tulips bloomed in the borders of the front garden, edging an elegantly mown lawn. In front of her stood the house, two stories rising behind a large veranda, a curtain twitching in one of the windows.
Before she reached the front door, it opened to reveal her mother. Flick let the handle of the case go and stepped forward to meet her in a hug.
“Felicity, darling! We’ve been waiting all morning.”
“Sorry, Mom. Traffic.”
Her mother stepped back, smiling, and looked her up and down. Flick bore the scrutiny patiently. She had a new haircut and outfit which had yet to receive maternal approval.
Apparently they did. Her mother pulled her back in for another hug. “You look lovely, darling. Oh, it’s so good to see you. I’ve got so many things to tell you—I’ve been organizing your graduation party, and then there’s the Saulters’ barbecue tomorrow, and—”
“All right, all right!” Flick broke in, laughing. “Let me get in first!”
She followed her mother into the entrance hall, noticing that the lounge door was open on her left. Through the doorway she could see her graduation photograph taking pride of place on the marble mantelpiece, blocking off part of the gold-edged mirror.
“Don’t be long,” Mrs. Lindenwood added airily as Flick made her way toward the staircase. “I want to hear everything. Have you met any nice girls?”
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a very short, quick story. Flick returns from college back to her home town .. she is happy to be back apart from the possibility of bumping into Elodie, the girl who had broken her heart four yeas previously. Flick is ‘out and proud’ as a lesbian but for unknown reasons Elodie wasn’t comfortable opening herself up to society and broke up with Flick in a cruel text. A lot of the story eludes to what that text could be and when we finally find out it all becomes clear why Flick was devastated. It materialises that Elodie’s sister is also gay so you’d think it would make it a little easier for her to admit her sexuality. Plenty of erotic f/f content but it also begs the question why there is so much inner turmoil at being who you are. I never felt the dilemma was dealt with really. Even though there is obviously a chemistry between the two girls I found it a bit frustrating that it all felt a little negative. I liked Flick, she is confident in herself and in reality I think she would be able to instil that same confidence in Elodie. Anyway, it’s an enjoyable read if you like this genre .. strictly over 18!
