Structured over a week, we are invited into the sparks, sexual tension and romance between Beth and Samuel.

Beth visits the same café every afternoon where she takes out a notepad and pen and starts writing short stories whilst enjoying her usual latte and a chocolate truffle. The delicious, sweet treats come her way as well as the inspiration she finds there – barista and hunk, Samuel.

Beth’s love life after her divorce has been close to extinct, but the sight of Samuel drive Beth’s desires for him spiraling out of control. Doubting Samuel would go for an older woman, when his beauty could attract a more ideal woman, Beth doesn’t think anything of it.

Over the course of a week, the tension between them continues to rises until…

I won’t spoil it for anyone wanting to read it, but it is delicious.

O’Leary has the art of writing in such a way that not only are her characters well developed but they come alive as real people and their distinct voices create a dynamic impact on the plot. This novella is concise, has a well-developed plot that has urgency and moves forward in a good pace and is relatable. It’s very easy to imagine Samuel, his attractiveness and instantly liking him.

The ample amount of tension in this novella allows it to be a page-turner worthy  read.

Cassandra O’Leary also wrote The Girl on a Plane.
