50 Shades of Green

That's what I am reliably informed the author is calling this book. To all those friends and acquaintances who ask her when she's gonna write one. Not that it bears much resemblance - this is three stories, not one and the girls are much younger - teen and college in the first two. Ok, so the last story does get a little tied up in  naughtiness, if you know what I mean, but that's Ro for you. He middle name is playful and she does like to have fun.

You can buy it in the UK for 77p and the US for $1.29, but only for a little while longer, then it will go up to £2.44/$3.99. So go and snap it up quick - just keep close to a cold shower for when you finish.
Here's the blurb:

Three girls, three decades, one outcome. These heroines have one thing in common – they attract trouble.

Tina’s Dilemma - Would you tell your best friend? Underneath Justin’s Greek God exterior is a dark bully. Tina has suffered twice at his hands and now he’s about to marry her former best friend. She is faced with a choice – ruin the wedding and risk a friendship or let Chloe marry the wrong man.

Teacher’s Pet – Where does it say “feel free to take advantage”? Vicky’s passionate opinion in class attracts unwanted attention from the local rugby hero, whose mates are just plain loud. But they are exactly who she needs when Dr Parr decides to educate her about more than just Economics.

Date Rape – When play-acting stops being a game. Kent Adams was different to Cassie’s normal dates – this one was a keeper. Erudite, worldly and six foot of pure, knee-trembling muscle, he shares her passion for opera and takes her to Shakespeare’s very own theatre in Stratford. But a combination of misread signals and dark yearnings culminate in the worst night of her life.

These short stories, set in the 70s, 80s and 90s involve the rather precarious adventures of three lovely ladies – and we’re not talking about the tree-climbing and dinghy-sailing type either. Hang on a sec, in the first book we actually are. A sweet coming of age story (with a dark twist), a college story that bites back, then the one that should have stayed buried on a floppy disk and never be released - but apparently S&M is the order of the day ...

Warning: Contains scenes of sexual violence.

Ro's added a bit about may contain nuts or something, but that's plain daft - you can't eat an e-book.
