Not only can she use the extra money, but it means she will see a lot more of Josie. Felix finds Josie fits in well into her life, and for the solitary Felix there’s finally the possibility of romance. But there’s something suspicious about Flame, who bears an uncanny resemblance to a valuable stolen racehorse. Felix knows she is falling hard for Josie, but is Josie all she seems, or is she mixed up in shady dealings?

Can you really start a relationship when you think its based on a lie?
Fenced-In Felix is the third book in the “Girl Meets Girl” series by Cheyenne Blue. The author clearly writes with ease because the story line doesn’t drag at any point and her descriptions of characters and their surrounds is flawless. I am living in Australia at the moment and have to say Cheyenne paints a pretty yet very accurate picture of the towns and cities down under. I almost feel myself being pulled into the story more because it feel more realistic.
I liked both of the main protagonists and really enjoyed the main characters from the pervious books making an appearance. I still love Sue and Moni from Not-So-Straight Sue (Book 2)… they just make me smile. I was left wanting more from Felix in the last novel so I was delighted when this landed on my kindle and I wasn’t disappointed. Felix is strong and honest but she’s also reserved and likes her space and you begin to see her second-guessing her feelings for Josie and her vulnerability comes out and that’s when she really shines. I took a while to warm up to Josie, with her flirtatious nature she almost overpowers Felix in few flirtatious conversations but as I read on I discovered that it was actually part of he charm and by then i was rooting for the couple to make it.
I really hope this series doesn’t end her because there is so many avenues Cheyenne could take the next story along with some already delightful secondary characters. Maybe the Aussie foursome could head back to the US for Moni and Sue’s wedding? I’m sure Nora and Ger would be there too.
On another note i would love to know if Felix’s Ranch is an actual place in Queensland? I’d be booking my next trip straight away…
Great Novel. 4.5 Stars.
Quote of the Book:
There was enough of a smile in her voice that I couldn’t tell how serious she was. But the thought that she wanted to fit in with me was heartwarming. Was I falling for Josie? I knew that I was. But was I falling for her enough to ask her to stay, with all that entailed? Whoa, Felix, I thought. Whoa girl. Just because she’s the first single lesbian who’s come your way for a long time, doesn’t mean you should be booking her a U-Haul. Or a horse float.
