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!
It is the first book I've read from Cheyenne Blue, but definetely not the last one. So I started with the second book of the "Girls meets Girl Series", but it was not a problem. It just caught my attention for the first one. The storys can stand alone, despite some referrings to the previous story.
Cheyenne has written a really nice romance which takes place in London and the outback of Australia. I very much liked the way, she shows the thoughts, feelings and the struggling of the main caracters. I could feel with them. She also describes the landscapes very pictorially. You can really good imagen driving through this landscapes on your own, especially when you have visited Australia herself.
The story of Sue and Moni is fluently written and the caracters well developed. After a very bad coming out as a teenager back home, with the result of the denial of her being queer for a long time, Sue finally can accept who she is. She returns to her home country to fight her demons of the betrayal of her first lover and to find a place in a rural area where she can find her peace.
On the other side Moni, who's dream is, to join the flying doctors in downunder. After her dream comes true, will she really be that lucky and find the love of her life in the woman she once met in London and now also live near her base? The woman she could never forget?
Thanks to Ylva for receiving an ACR for a honest review. Sorry for my not correct english writing, my native language is swiss german.
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.
