Different

I found this different and maybe a little unexpected for Harper Bliss. The story was unique. I’m not sure if the narration put me off a little or what...can’t put my finger on what I didn’t like. Over all good, though.

Love vs grief.

While this story can be a little frustrating at times, like “open your eyes girl!”, it is a well constructed tale of how long it takes true love to combat an abusive relationship.
In the end, it was worth it 😉.
Be patient and I think you will agree.

Wonderful listening experience

Both women, Tess and Lara, were very well written, in both the book and the audio book. The audio book was exactly like the written book and kept to the storyline which made it very enjoyable to read. The characters were both entertaining. The drama was light and the humor was kept to a minimum but was also well placed in the story. A bit of jealousy added to the storyline was inspiring to the reader and made for a bit of a dramatic addition to Lara’s personality. Overall a really enjoyable listening experience provided by the author .

A beautiful story!

This is one book, of Harpers, that I haven't read before listening to, but I have still thoroughly enjoyed it. I have spent the whole day listening and it has been a day well spent. I love reading anything by Harper, she is a truly gifted author!

abuse

I have to admire Harper for broaching this subject as its repulsive to normal people especially set in a romance, but in her expert writing she produces warmth and love to show we all deserve equal rights to happiness, and Charlotte delivers narration in all the right tones to the relevant scenes, bravo
