Book 1 and 3 I enjoyed

I bought book 1 of this series and I really enjoyed it. So it worked out cheaper for me to buy this series with books 1-3 in, rather than buy the other 2 books separately to carry on the story.

I enjoyed book 1 hence why I bought this set. Book 2 I wasn’t that wrapped up in the story, maybe it was because I already knew they would end up together, I don’t know, plus Sheryl drinking annoyed me because of the fact how it affected her and her dads relationship why do that to kristin? Anyway book 3 I enjoyed it was about Josephine’s confidence in her body as she is a larger woman, I really enjoyed this story.

The narration was great for all three of these books.

Amazingly Diverse Series

A recently divorced mother in her forties, Mickie, starts working at the Pink Bean coffee shop and opens up to the possibilities of Robin. Cheryl and Kristen own the Pink Bean. Their story is a testament to the love and strength of forever love. A triumph of caring and growth. Josephine is Cheryl’s teaching assistant and a plus size woman struggling with self esteem. Kaitlin is a recent returnee from the States and a feminist icon. An Age Gap story and a tender romance. Recommend series. Marvelous narration.

I liked it until book 3

The first book was the typical romance story, it was ok, not very deep but fun. The second story is a love story that stretched out through decades, it was deep and very good listen. The third story felt like I had an agenda shoved down my throat, there was a war against men (specifically white men) and monogamy is just a fruitless fight against human nature.

Well, I liked the first two and then the reading took a 180 turn and I was thrown for a loop. Loved the narration as always, I think it's funny sometimes because this is supposed to be Australia but everyone sounds like an American, was funny.

Overall, it was a good read but my god the third book was just too much, I had to skip over it.

Three Books to Fall in Love with

No Strings Attached
Beneath The Surface
Everything Between Us
Three books and so much one story. They come alive as we grow in our knowledge of the characters. We walk through their passion, struggle, and romance. In the end we understand their lives and loves. Well worth the listening or reading. Maybe both.

Enjoy it

I love Harper Bliss stories. They’re all about building and working at relationships. All her books are amazing, they mean something and get their point across. My favorite story was the 2nd one. Even though I did relate to Micky’s story too and it was a great story!!! And Angela Dawe was not a bad narrator! I was looking forward to Josephine’s story but I didn’t like the 1st person narration or cared for the narrator! Sorry! But, it ruined the eclipse of the book for me!!! I’m still going to continue with more books though!!!
