G Benson Knows how to write a book let me tell you! She writes about real emotion, real life problems and real life Romance and love!
Frazer, head midwife at a hospital in Perth, Australia, is trying to make her corner of the world a little better by starting up a programme for at-risk parents. Not everyone is excited about her ideas. Surrounded by red tape, she finally has to team up with Cora, a social worker who is married to Frazer’s boss.
Cora is starting to think her marriage is beyond saving, even if she wants to. Feeling smothered by a domineering spouse, she grabs hold of the programme and the distraction Frazer offers with both hands. Soon the two women get a little too close and find themselves in a situation they never dreamed themselves capable of: an affair.
As the two fall deeper, both are torn between their taboo romance and their morals. But walking away from each other may not be as simple as they thought.
I loved this book and hated it at the same time! I wanted Cora to stand up to her arrogant and antagonistic husband… Leave him… Follow her heart!
And then Frazer and her inability to just say how she feels…. Especially when it comes to Cora she just gives her what she wants and doesn’t rock the boat!
I say these things but I realise now that I have finished the book that these things are what kept me reading and hoping for the HEA these characters really deserved!
The subplot about Jack the Pregnant Transgender Teen was fantastic. Handled well with lots of emotion and understanding!
I hope the author does another novelette like she did after her last novel to give us a little more!
4 stars because as much as I was frustrated with certain aspects it was those aspects that kept me intrigued and continued to read on to find the lovely and warm parts that I do love from this author.
