Life is a rat race, and Elena White is stuck on the treadmill. She’s been living on autopilot, a slave to the 9-to-5 routine, until a chance meeting with an old school friend serves as the catalyst that changes Elena’s life in a way she could have never imagined.
Dazzled by her friend’s self-assured confidence, Elena makes an innocent attempt to break from the monotony, and the repercussions send her on a rollercoaster of emotions, smashing predictability to pieces, leaving her life anything but predictable.
Elena didn’t really want to go, but she couldn’t stay while his wife was there. Maybe a friend or someone would come and take her home. Then they could enjoy the rest of the afternoon together.
She gnawed away at her nails, knowing that was highly unlikely. Why had he told his wife he was on his own at the house? If they’d been separated for a few months, then okay, but after a year and a half? Wasn’t it time to move on for both of them? Or was that just wishful thinking?
Elena sat there for fifteen minutes, which felt like two hours, running through all the different scenarios, letting her imagination run wild with a barrage of what-ifs.
She heard the creaky floorboards outside the door, someone was coming. Elena shot up off the bed, her heart pounding. She braced herself for another confrontation.
The handle turned, and Conrad popped his head around the door. A sigh of relief left Elena’s lips.
“Here you are. I was beginning to think you were trying to walk home.” He came in and closed the door behind him.
“Has she gone?’
Conrad shook his head. Her hopes were dashed.
“So lunch is on hold then?’” She wasn’t completely giving in.
“Elena . . .” He broke eye contact, choosing to look at the carpet instead. “I . . . erm . . .”
“You want me to go.” She helped him along with the words.
“I can’t send her home in a taxi in that state. I’m going to have to take her myself. I’m sorry. I didn’t know she was going to turn up. She hasn’t been here for weeks.”
“It’s okay, I understand.” Elena gave her best performance.
“I’m so sorry, Elena. Olivia didn’t mean what she said.”
Oh yes, she did.
“Come downstairs. She’s spark out on the sofa in the drawing room.”
Elena headed back down the stairs with Conrad behind her. The welcoming feel of the house had been changed to one of intimidation. She went back into the kitchen and sat at the table where they had breakfast. He made her a cup of tea and said the taxi should be there within the hour.
Conrad, sipping his coffee, kept his distance and leaned against the worktop. The embarrassment of the situation had starved them both of conversation. Time passed unbearably slowly, and Elena feared his wife’s angry return at any moment and looked nervously towards the closed door every few minutes. She hung on to her empty teacup, pretending to drink from it, not knowing what else to do, while Conrad tided, moving things around unnecessarily.
“Have you got a busy week coming up?” It was the only thing that sprang to mind, just to break the silence.
“I have. I’ve got to go to Scotland towards the end of the week for a couple of days”
“Oh yeah, the new gym. Is it all going as planned?”
“Well, I wouldn’t say as planned. How about you?”
“Nothing exciting. Just work as usual.”
The trivial conversation was halted by a knock at the door. She jumped off the stool and straightened her dress.
“Right, that’s me then.” Her impending exit seemed to intensify the awkwardness between them.
“Yeah. Have you got everything?”
“I think so.”
They walked in silence to the front door. Elena was desperately hoping he would say something, anything that would give her some hope. Would she see him again, or was this it?
They stood at the front door, and Elena had decided that rather than torture herself, she was going to ask him. She hesitated as he reached over her shoulder to open the door.
Reviewers Comments: Whiter Than White
“Excellent first book! I am just giddy after reading this book. I couldn’t tell where the story was going, which was very refreshing. I found myself thinking, how are the characters going to be wrapped up? Great villain. Awesome hero in Conrad, amazing, sweet, sexy as sin…Elena, a girl you’d be friends with. She’s strong, sweet and a bit cheeky.”
“It captivated me from the start. Very well written story line that makes you keep going until you get to the last page. Conrad is every women’s dream and all you want to do is wrap yourself up with this book!!! GG Carver delivers an erotic romance you won’t want to put down.”
“I was delighted and honoured to receive an ARC of Whiter Than White, G G Carvers debut novel. The beginning had me intrigued and I was surprised where the story took me. It had a plot that was quite unexpected (a good unexpected), it was funny/witty and it was sexy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Well done G G!”
