aawwwww!! what a lovely story!
two people who've liked each other from the instant they met, but were too afraid to do anything about it for various reasons. a year after they first meet, disaster strikes in Rita's life, and her boss Ivan is there to help her get back on her feet (or possibly on her back). both parties struggle with the reality of their shifting relationship, but are eventually able to trust each other to be their for them.
well written, easy to read & surprisingly for such a short story, I really felt the characters. really gets you in, I laughed so hard when Rita fell off her chair! & felt her subsequent embarrassment.
if you want a quick read, PICK THIS ONE!
oh, it's also an Aussie one, which I LOVE. I've only been there once, but the Swan River was absolutely beautiful, can't wait to get back there!
