I completely agree with other reviewers: this was a pointless book.

I feel like I would have been better off overall if I hadn't read this.

It felt like you were reading book 3.5 of a series, there was no content to the relationship. It started when they both hadn't admitted to liking each other more than friends, then they got together. How am I supposed to care that they got together with no background history or anything?

You will also lose count how many times Violet says "Buggering toads" a

Another quick, cute story with a friends-to-lovers theme. I'd love to have seen more of their story, but it stands up as the flashpoint in which everything changes for them. ...more
This feels...pointless.

The sex scene feels like it had more time and energy put into it than anything else. And even then, it still made me uncomfy because it feels like Geoffrey is more concerned with what he wants than communicating with Violet and asking what she wants and listening to what she says. There's the use of "more than friends" which is annoying and gross, friendship isn't less than romantic or sexual relationships. Violet used to call Terrence and Geoffrey "black and tan", because

This is a great quick read. I always love Dahlia’s books and this one was no different. Violet went from nerd to a tattooed flower child. Geoffrey went from bad boy to buckled down business man. They seemed to have reversed their roles. The meet in school and have kept in contact every since. They are always sending each other post cards. Somewhere along the way they fell in love. Now what are they going to do about it. Violet figures Geoffrey doesn’t feel the same way about her she does about h ...more

I absolutely adore Dahlia Donovan. I gobble up everything she writes because I know I'm getting a fanfreakingtastic read with stellar characters and plot lines and twists and fun and life. Oh how well she write life and it's ups and downs, even in her short stories I'm never left wanting.

Not so good

I have to say that this was not my favorite book. I finished it because I'm obsessive like that but it wasn't a good read m trust me I've read terrible books. The characters were wishy-washy and the story was under developed.

Long-time friends, each realizes they love the other...
but don't know how the other feels.

I would love to hear the stories of the side characters.

Despite the reference to soap, this is not a clean story. ;-)

Geoffrey and Violet

A short but pleasant read. After years of being friends Geoffrey finally picks the courage to let Violet how he feels.

Short, predictable, no story in between. With only five characters two of them being elder, one gay, what can you anticipate. I like a little more action not such pinkness.

2.5 stars. Short story. Would have been nice if there were more to the characters and their backstory.
