Alice had a secret. At just seventeen she had found and fallen deeply in love with the perfect man. The kind of man you don’t ever forget, the kind of sexual experience you can never replicate, but that man had been her teacher.
Fourteen Years later – married and a mother – Alice reluctantly attends her high school reunion and although bringing back bitter sweet memories of her clandestine adolescence, she leave the party with a gentle closure on the part of her past that she couldn’t, until now, put to rest.
On the short car ride home, stopping briefly for traffic she glances behind her.
There, through the dark windscreen, dim shadows and the sudden shroud of her unexpected tears she’s met with the face of the man that had filled her dreams for over a decade…
He had taught her how to love. Both inspired aand pushed her fledgling sexual journey to its youthful limits and made her beautiful over all others. He was temptation itself, and he was here.
On the night she had decided to let it all go, to let him go…he was refusing to let her.
‘The beautiful and unapologetic honesty of true love, raw sexual ownership and internal struggle – are all emotionally alive here. Delicately dissecting that hidden, duplicitous part within us all that we’re never fully comfortable to recognise or accept.’
