So the story starts out with Sue’s road-trip through the outback. Along the way she encounters Felix. I loved their outing on the horses, the writing was so vivid I felt like I was riding along with them. The attraction between Sue and Felix is instantaneous and undeniable. They steam up the pages for a short time before Sue and her dog, Ripper, continue on their way.
Over the course of her journey, Sue keeps in touch with Nora and various friends via emails and skype whenever the internet allows it. And of course this involves ‘coming out.’ The story behind why Sue was in the closet is heartfelt and, I’m sure, an all too common occurrence.
The first 50% of this story is a slow-burn, low on angst, more of a feel good read. Then Moni joins the mix. Thus begins the relationship between Sue and Moni. They are hot together, and their relationship goes deeper than lust and sex. I need to say here, I actually found it a little odd that the most erotic, on-page scene was between the main character and a side-character, rather than the main characters. It wasn’t a deal breaker for me, but still…
The fact Sue is a lawyer added depth to the story, without bogging it down with legal jargon. It certainly made it interesting when an old foe came seeking her services.
From that point the drama picked up, the required miscommunication ensued, and despite the fact I found the outcome rather predictable I thoroughly enjoyed reading along.
Just for the record – I know Aussies and Kiwis alike often say moved towards, forwards, backwards, etc. But I’ve not met a single person who says… “I look forwards to it.”
The story flows at a good pace and the characters are well developed. Mrs T. needs an honorable mention as she too was a delight. All in all, this was a very enjoyable read which I highly recommend!
This is the second book in the Girl Meets Girl series though Not-So-Straight Sue can be read as a standalone book without any issues. The author has plans to release a third book in the Girl Meets Girl series called Fenced-In Felix. A good introduction to the main character, Felix Jameson, is found in Not-So-Straight Sue. Never-Tied Nora is the first book in the series.
Notwithstanding the fact that Not-So-Straight Sue didn’t amaze me as much as I’d hoped it would, I look forward to reading the next one in the series, Fenced-In Felix.
Why did Sue not confide in Nora while they were best friends in London? Why isn’t it a bigger deal when she does eventually tell her? Where are the feelings of hurt, anger and betrayal? Why, after years of such strong denial does it seem so (relatively) easy for Sue to accept her sexuality when she returns to Australia?
There also seems insufficient motivation for Sue’s sudden decision to leave the excitement and success of her life in London to return to outback Queensland.
None of the other characters were well-fleshed out either. Denise is portrayed as such an unremittingly loathsome user that Sue’s response to her seemed weak and vapid, rather than kind and forgiving. I felt I did not know or understand Moni, Sue’s love interest, well enough to understand her interest in Sue.
On the positive side though, it is evocative of life in a small outback town. The descriptions of the environment work much better than the descriptions of the characters. Unfortunately, that’s not enough for a really satisfying romance story.
