Andi Rey is an impassioned artist who lives on the glorious Surf Coast of Victoria, Australia. Grounded by her family, and her surroundings, Andi is focused on her first solo exhibition. Until Caitlin Quinn, an alluring Irish art historian, drops into Andi’s life and ignites a storm of longing.
A mutual love of art and the natural environment draws the two women together. But tension builds and career expectations and cultural differences keep them apart.
Can Caitlin and Andi overcome their individual challenges to negotiate their future together?

My View:

So Expressive
Andi is a surfer chick who has a wicked way with paint and brushes. Shes getting ready for her first solo show and doesn’t have time for a relationship. Besides, there aren’t many women in the area that aren’t just passing through sooner or later. After her last girlfriend left her after two years, to return home after her visa was up, without looking back she is reluctant to date anyway. Caitlin is an art professor who is in Australia to catalogue her Grandaunt’s collection. She is only there for a year before she is to return home to Ireland. When Andi and Caitlin meet, sparks fly but neither of them are ready for anything serious but what will happen to them if their hearts can’t handle casual?

This excellently written book will quickly immerse you into its tale. This authors uses descriptive imagery to pain the story with words. You will almost see and smell the ocean, fields, and the vivid paints that Andi uses as she creates her stunning, emotional masterpieces. You will hear the birds and insects, the crash of the waves and smell the vibrant flowers and to die for meals the duo share.

I quickly fell in love with both Andi and Caitlin. Andi is a bit shy and introverted yet adventurous and full of fire. Caitlin is a bold and intelligent extrovert whose life’s passion is art. They are both full of a zest for life and love to travel around the area exploring and discovering… They are so beautiful and sensual, both lighting desires in the other with just a look. They are faced with such difficult choices but in the end all is well and I am ever so content.
