Before Her by Grace Parkes

⭐⭐★



Cara Taylor works in one of the only two pubs in the small village she's grown up in and dreams of moving out of there someday. While saving to fly the coop, she lives with her friend, Jenny, the other one of the "best lesbians in this shitty village" -- both totally femme. Jenny is a property owner and besides the apartment that she shares with Cara, there is another one that she leases out. When she embarks on a hot, hot affair with a lady she met on a dating site, Jenny asks Cara to be the welcoming committee for her new tenant, Frankie.

It is lust at first sight for Cara when she meets Frankie and her interest seems to be returned. Except that Jenny unambiguously tells Cara not to shag her new tenant plus, Frankie seems to be carrying some emotional secrets.

This one is really short and Parkes manages to cover quite a few threads in it. So there is the friendship, angst with parent, slimy boss, Jenny super fast romance and drama I it, Frankie's baggage, the Cara-Frankie romance, plus a few sex scenes. Obviously, with so much being fit into a rather short read, nothing is really explored with any kind of depth. The abruptness with which Cara and Frankie enter into sex is quite mind-spinning. It has some fun dialogue (mostly between Cara and Jenny).

This is a narrative that skims the surface and in turn can be skimmed through.
