Average prequel to No Strings Attached

The story starts well and the two main characters get together very early on. Then... that's more or less about it. 50% of the book could have been left out. The style of setting is as good as ever, but the whole book is let down by a story lacking interest. I feel slightly cheated. Readers/listeners hoping for a romance like No Strings Attached may want to look somewhere else because this is more of a life angst story, something out of a TV soap than a romance novel.

Overall good book!

Another great book by Harper Bliss. I really enjoy the emotion she brings to her books!! The characters were interesting and experienced some very real challenges. It was tough getting thru them but that's what a good book will do for you. I almost got frustrated with one of the characters but before I could really get mad, it ended, which was probably for the better! Also, the narrator had a great voice...I could listen to her all day!! Overall, excellent listen! I look forward to the next book!

Well written. Substance abuse flash backs

Enjoyed the story. Spoiler****It brought up old memories of my wife struggling with alcoholism ( she has been sober now and we are expecting!). It was nice to see how her partner choose the relationship when faced with an ultimatum and showed her support in the end. A lot of self discovery on both main characters and felt the realism in the characters development.

Deep Good Story

Wow! What a book! Ms Bliss has done it again! This book is very thought provoking and deep! It moved a slower than usual due to the subject matter however the story and writing is so good I couldn’t put it down! Such a great book and Ms Bliss is a writing ass and I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Great read!

A good story Disappointing narration

Harper Bliss writes excellent books... never a dud... but the narrator was a poor choice....The book was set in Australia and the North American was alien to the storyline and jarring....
