Betty Lewis thought she would never see her high school boyfriend, Will Walker, again after she had dumped him and refused to tutor him anymore in biology. Imagine her surprise when he shows up as the new doctor in the same practice where she is the chief nurse more than a decade later.
Will had always pressed Betty to the edge of her sexuality in their youth and immediately sets about doing it again. But this time around, Betty wants something more. Something more than just lust. Betty wants love…
or nothing. Can the stirrings of old lust turn into the fires of lasting love?
Something More is a short story that started out with great potential but ended up falling a little bit flat for me. I enjoyed the characters and found myself wanting things to work out for Betty and Will, but the office sexual encounter needed to be a little more realistic.
The story is set in the 1950’s where times were different than they are today. Author Scarlett Jonstone did a great job with capturing the mindset of that era. Overall I liked this story and forward to reading more of Scarlett Jonstone’s books.
