As parties went, this was a fairly average one, at least that's what Claire thought.

A chance conversation snippet eavesdropped on by accident suddenly opens Claire up to a completely new world of experience and emotion.

Quite unexpectedly, she finds out that one of her best friends is a lesbian. Confronted by this news she struggles with conflicting emotions and reduced inh

Erm... I wouldn't call this a romance, I wouldn't even call it lesbian - even though it's about two women hooking up.
It's more like some guys fantasy about a straight woman trying out an experience with a friend who's turned lesbian for now. Whether she's bi or not isn't really discussed in th book but then there isn't really much in the way of discussion at all as it's only about 12 pages long..
Claire is at a party an overhears her friend Samantha talking about how she enjoys women over men, f

Sweet, quickie story about best friends exploring each other sexually. One girl is a lesbian and experienced in the ways of pleasing a woman and the other is straight, but obviously curios about experiencing the pleasures of being with another woman. I am not typically into reads that only contain f/f interaction, but this one was great!

Dear Mr. Edwards,

Wow!! I'm pretty amazed due to your good, smooth, exciting writing style.

I must admit that F/F erotica isn't on my to-read list, but as I was reading your book, I immersed on it, and that's what I expect a good, small book should be.

Even though this is a short story, characters were well traced; and the plot, well, was as should expected to be, no further less.

So, why you got 4 stars, instead of 5? Because I didn't like when Samantha describes "becoming a lesbian": either she

Quickie Thoughts

This was my first F/F read, and I'm certainly glad it was! I really liked how the author eased into the sex, rather than having them jump straight into bed. It was very sexy and sweet. I also liked how it ended realistically, without Claire all of a sudden declaring that she's a lesbian, too. The only thing I didn't like was how Samantha said she "turned lesbian." I don't think anyone just "turns" into a lesbian.

What a sexy well written book. The characters are wonderfully written and very believable. The sex scenes are Hot as Hell, and left me wanting more.......I fully intend to read more by this author.

I have read a few other F/F books, most having a paranormal element, and I didn't care for them much. This book has restored my faith that F/F books can be very erotic to read, enough said.
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!
This book was a first for me. Just as it's a first for the main character! hee hee!

F/F books have never really appealed to me but I decided to give this one a chance. It was a pretty good story and it flowed really well. I also found it to be completely believable! I could see this happening and i'm sure it's has happened many times all over the world.

I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this short story very much. I thought Claire (the character who always considered herself straight) reacted very realistically and believably to Samantha's interest in her. She was curious and excited, but a little bit frightened of her own feelings. I'm eager for a look at what happens "the morning after" and hope Mr. Edwards will consider writing a continuation!
Full review to come but this was a hot little scene about the first time a woman gets her f/f on. it was hot, but I liked the ending more because things were wrapped up in a neat little bow, so it seemed more realistic.

This was a well written book. I could feel the nervousness Claire was feeling. At the same time I could also feel the want Samantha had towards her friend. Hmm, going to have to look more books up from Xavier Edwards.
A sweet short story of F/F awakening, graphic in actions and character emotions making you wish you were there playing the scene. More like this please :-)

I have to say this is my first f/f read and it didn't freak me out as much as I thought it would lol. It was a great story of 2 friends experimenting. Very well written

Overhearing a coversation can lead to something totally unexpected. When Claire overhears her freind Samantha blurt out that she is into women,, Claire doesn't know what to expect. But when Samantha reveals that Claire is the one she lusts after, it leads to a very steamy encounter.

Something that makes this story a little different is that neither lady knew of their attraction to other wpmen. Samantha shares a lot of details about her failed relationships with men, while Claire is never comforta

√This book had some sexy parts and interesting exchanges but felt slow moving and lacked the heat I look for in an erotic story. That is not the fault of the author, however. I tend to go through phases in my genres and themes, and at this moment, f/f reads are not high on my list.
Short and enjoyable read - my first f/f and it was a very good one, could make for a nice longer story.

I don't have much experience with F/F. I found this quick and easy read entertaining enough. While it isn't my usual cup of tea I did like it.

Xavier Edwards (it might be his real name, no one is really sure) has spent his life surrounded by women, and writing. Growing up in rural Australia before the age of the Internet and cable television, there was no better refuge than in books. Any and all genres were absorbed as he and his three sisters grew up far from the hectic pace of the big smoke. The wide expanse of open country and natural ...more
