Fifty Shades of Grey recently took the world by storm, but what about the women who secretly want to read lesbian romance?
Eleanor’s blissfully unaware that her husband Harvey’s having a steamy affair with a young woman at the Office and is about to turn his back on his lucrative City career. Ruth thinks her husband Simon is working long hours too, but he’s more likely to be found tucked up in bed with his mistress, plotting their divorce.
In the middle of it all, a drunken kiss with her good friend Helen sends Ruth’s world into freefall, and what happens next changes all of their lives forever …
A Gap in the Market
Lipstick Lesbianism is big business in every aspect of the media, yet there is still so little out there in the mainstream women's fiction market which offers the reader anything other than the merest hint of a sexual relationship between the type of professional, independent women we read about on a daily basis in the average Chick Lit novel or the press.
"Just Good Friends?" features not only husbands having affairs, but also a passionate love story between two straight/married women. It follows the moral dilemma faced by married yummy mummy Ruth as the sexual attraction she feels towards her friend Helen begins to overwhelm her. But will she have the courage to follow her heart? This novel includes lesbian sexual content.
