Can chocolate spark a second chance at a high school love?

Melbourne AFLW star player, Morgan Prohasky has everything going for her – the Aussie Rules footy career she sacrificed so much for, a city apartment paid for by her parents, prospects for whatever future she wants.

Simone Collins said goodbye to her high school love and moved on, but never forgot her.

Six years later, an away game brings Morgan home for a weekend- but will it bring them back together?

Stephanie Ashton

Overheard conversations and opening paragraphs of stories have filled Stephanie’s notebooks since she was ten.

A former international flight attendant, Stephanie’s books are inspired by favourite destinations (hello Paris, Seoul and New York) and that feeling of coming home.

When she’s not writing, she adds to her baking bucket list, tries new food and discovers destinations closer to home in regional Victoria.

She loves living in Melbourne with her partner and their daughter. Most weekends you’ll see the them bayside drinking coffee, patting other people’s dogs and riding their bikes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I don’t normally read contemporary romance or F/F and now I’m wondering what I’m missing out on.
