Format: Paperback
Crystal Sheridan is a stripper. She ran away from an abusive home when she was fifteen, ten years before. She lived alone in a seedy run down apartment, that is until she accidentally caused a fire and it burned down one night. After spending the rest of the night in her car, she goes apartment hunting. For the money she can afford, she is offered a chance of sharing an apartment with lesbian author, Laura Taylor. It's actually Laura's friend Peter, that rents the place to Crystal in Laura's absence. When Laura returns to her home and meets Crystal, she is horrified. The two roomies are as different as night and day. Crystal drinks, smokes and does drugs, to say nothing of her stripping job and is an untidy slob. Laura on the other hand, hardly drinks, abhors drugs and is also an obsessive neat freak. How are the two women going to exist living together? Time elapses and both women find themselves becoming more tolerant towards each other. Laura sees a vulnerability in Crystal that changes her outlook of the woman all together. She sets out to help Crystal overcome her fears. In helping Crystal, it also helps Laura overcome some of her own fears. It's not long before Laura begins to feel more for Crystal than just friendship. But Crystal is straight, isn't she? Also as the two women have nothing in common, will they even be able to become friends?
I first read this book online a few years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed the book then. Both BL Miller and Verda Foster have covered some extremely sensitive topics brilliantly. Child abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, prostitution, and infidelity are just some of them . But the book is written with such understanding that what could be a big turn off for a reader, actually makes a reader understand more about the subjects, without getting too heavy. I only wish BL Miller and Verda Foster would write more books.

I recently found the authors page and I was pleased I did because I missed them being online with their fanfiction.

The story itself was an interesting tale of how two people with very little in common can connect. One word of warning though, if you have issues with childhood abuse, especially CSA, this might be a triggering story. That said, although it touches on the aftermath, it doesn't delve so deeply that it becomes bogged down with the aforementioned issues.

Another thing I liked about this story is the fact you don't get a book filled out by unnecessary erotica. For whatever reason far too many stories seem to be no more than soft porn these days. I know erotica has its place, but I hate when you read a book expecting a drama/thriller/western/crime and you end up with it falling into nothing more than the soft porn category.

So for those of us who don't mind a bit of erotica in the story, but hate when that's all a story ends up as, books like these are a breath of fresh air.

Wow am going to be looking for more by these authors. I finished this book in one sitting and was disappointed to reach the end . Very well written and well researched story that truly does justice to the subject matter of a struggle to recover from the impact and effect of an abusive childhood. The relationships depicted are also really well thought out and pull you in to their story. Loved it.

HASH(0x97053f48) out of 5 stars Dynamic! Intriguing! 6 Jun. 2005
By Joyce McNeil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Crystal Sheridan, "exotic dancer" with at twist, is left suddenly without a place to live when a fire - a fire she caused - claims her apartment. Armed with a roommate wanted ad she is sent to the home of stay-at-home writer Laura Taylor, by a friend of Laura's. Moved in while Laura was out, Laura returns home where she, much to her dismay, soon discovers her new roommate has a few not so agreeable habits. Not certain they can be compatible, Laura nevertheless agrees to let Crystal stay...on a trial basis.

The weeks pass and the two women begin to sort through the many differences they have, the biggest one being Crystal is straight and Laura is a lesbian. When Laura discovers Crystal seems to be suffering from nightmares, she begins to suspect that something terrible must have happened to Crystal in her past. Bad enough it seems, that it causes Crystal horrible nightmares? As they begin forming a tentative friendship, Laura broaches the subject of Crystal talking to someone - professionally - about her nightmares. Crystal picks Laura's ex-lover Jenny, who is a therapist and still Laura's friend, and Laura finds herself experiencing feelings of frustration and just a touch of jealousy. Why?

More time passes and Laura and Crystal begin to discover that feelings of friendship are turning into feelings of a different type. Will Laura, once convinced she was meant to be alone, allow herself to explore these new feelings? Can she help Crystal overcome the traumas of her past and show her that she is worthy of being loved? Will Crystal let herself love and be loved in return?

Verda Foster and B.L. Miller, each an extremely talented writer in their own right, co-author well together as displayed in both Crystal's Heart and their other co-written, wonderfully intriguing book - Graceful Waters. And B.L's co-authorship with Verda's sister Vada, of the bold and endearing book - The Western Chronicles also denotes an outstanding ability to write well in collaboration. Come along as both Verda and BL take the reader on a tremendous journey experiencing the characters' feelings of life, love, loss, drama, and heartbreak. Verda's terrific solo works - The Gift and These Dreams, and B.L.'s wonderful book - Accidental Love, prove that both writers are also equally adept in their individual efforts.

HASH(0x97b5006c) out of 5 stars Opposites Attract... 27 Dec. 2004
By K. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Crystal Sheridan is the victim of child abuse - actively by her physically abusive father and passively by her alcoholic mother. Running away from home at the vulnerable age of 15, she gets involved in the world of sex, stripping, drugs and alcohol to survive. After her apartment burns down, she is forced to find a new home.

Laura Taylor is a single, neat-nic lesbian with a miserable romantic history who is currently in need of a roommate to help with expenses. Her realtor friend (and resident matchmaker) rents her spare room to Crystal.

Opposites in almost every way, Crystal and Laura learn to understand each other and help each other start to heal with the help of Jenny, Laura's ex and a psychiatrist who specializes in abuse cases.

As with most by B.L.Miller and Verda Foster, solo or as a team, this is a very good book. It is thought-provoking, well-written, and hard to put down.

By lenkalotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of those lesfic stories that grabs my heart every time I read it. I don't know how often I've read the online version of this story. Until it was rereleased recently you could not get a hold of the paperback unless you were willing to shell out 70 Dollars.

So now for the first time I've read the published version. There are some changes to the story as scenes were moved around and some, but really only very little things were added. Those changes only serve to make the story better, which I was relieved about.

I can't put my finger on what exactly it is about those characters that makes them so special to me, they just are. The story itself is a very average romance, the writing is ok but nothing remarkable. But oh, those characters... :)

HASH(0x9705e48c) out of 5 stars This is a Must read book 16 Mar. 2007
By Debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent Story and to me it seemed to cover all the bases on recovery and finding love. Unlike other books that gloss over the hard topics that are covered here, this book takes you through the rollar coaster that Samantha and Laura are going through. You will love humor that Lauras friends bring as you can see any group of lesbians acting as they do. You will be rooting for these two women and love the romance and you actually wonder at times if they will get together. The thoughts that were going through these two women made perfect sense and you could 'feel' the turmoil both were going through.

As was stated by another reviewer I would love for the authors to do a story on Jenny. As soon as I was done with this book I wanted to read a sequal to see how Samantha was doing in her recovery and to see how she was growing.
