What a fab book that I couldn’t put down, I read it in two sittings. If you’re looking for a light, easy read romance then this is definitely a book for you.

Scarlet is woken up at 4am by a loud banging on her front door. She opens it to find a policeman standing there, she has 30 minutes to pack a few things and get out, her basement flat is about to be flooded. She finds herself on the doorstep of local Mayor Joy Hudson and soon starts to realise that there are people much worse off than she is.

Scarlet and Joy strike up a friendship that quickly leaves them both wanting more and the sexual tension between the two makes you want them to be more than just friends. A lot of emotions pass between the two in such a short space of time that it left me feeling breathless, a credit to the author’s writing for that one.

Both Joy and Scarlet had had obstacles in love and life thrown at them recently and I found myself rooting for them both from the very beginning. What could have been the worst week of Scarlet’s life ended up being one of the best.

What a fab book that I couldn’t put down, I read it in two sittings. If you’re looking for a light, easy read romance then this is definitely a book for you.

Synopsis

Can you find love in a hopeless place?

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless.

Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

If you’re a fan of contemporary lesbian romance, you’ll love Scarlet & Joy’s story, bursting with real characters and shot through with British wit. From the international best-selling author of London Calling and This London Love comes a heart-warming tale of love & redemption.

Price: £4.99 digital, £9.99 print.
