“WOW isn’t a strong enough word. This was so much more than just a good story. It gave me insight into my own life. There were personal gains and losses, trials and tribulations, pain and pleasure. It kept me on my toes and made me FEEL! The ending was so perfectly perfect that my heart swelled and I teared up in happiness and was left with a warm contented feeling.” – Amelia Faith, book reviewer

intimate fantasy as Harper’s soft lips traveled around Ivy’s bare shoulders collarbone chest and then down to her sensitive nipples and gorged with desire and yearning to be nurtured by Harper within moments of her imagined touch iv8 for her to take her to a place she had never been before with a woman as the heat passed through her under the alluring plushness of her blankets Ivy’s head buzzed

headed back out to her bedroom Harper would be arriving any time now to be interviewed for her new job as a Wellness Center’s acoustic entertainer the sound of a car door being slammed shut came from the driveway not once not twice three times each time the slam grew more intense midway through pulling her undies up under her skirt she ran over to the window to see the fuss Harper Rae wearing a tight pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt bent down beside her driver’s side car door and lifted it body slamming against it she stepped back and waited her hands splayed out in front of her as if ready to catch the door should it have fallen off its hinges the car a faded blue sedan with white spots on its bumpers and sides resembled something that had been driven over landmines in a war zone a crack stretched across her windshield above the driver’s viewpoint Harper cupped her hand over her eyes and glanced at the house Ivy jumped backward behind her curtain a moment later she peeked out again Harper’s thick dark ponytail hung at her shoulders she was beautiful with her ivory colored skin and toned physique she shifted on her tattered sneakers if deciding if she should get back in her car and speed away or take a chance on the weird flowery woman she met in a grocery store the day before eventually Ivy headed toward the front door and waited when would she knock knock on the damn door Ivy whispered when she finally did Ivy beamed to life she opened the door and a set of dark eyes met hers Harper Rea with her little nose and messy ponytail was adorable so adorable she wore a t-shirt from Bella roses Ivy had one just like it wisps of Harper’s hair sprang from her loose ponytail as if trying to run away from her stress dark smudges smeared on her jawline likely from the car door greased Harper glanced around the front yard pointing her eyes down at the pruned bushes that covered Ivy’s front bay window when she swept her eyes up to ivy everything from her roots to her
