Two women lose the man they love. All they have left is each other. Sophie's life is turned upside down when her partner, Ian, dies in a tragic accident. The only one who can understand her devastation is Ian's stepmother, Dolores. Together, they try to make sense of their loss and rebuild their shattered lives. While their shared grief brings them closer, it also takes their relationship in an unexpected direction. Where does sorrow end and romance begin? Or has Ian's death blurred the lines too much?

I've been in a frenzy of lesbian audiobooks lately and I've listen to quite a respectable amount, I can say I acknowledged the concept of the "formula" rather fast, but I found Harper Bliss books and tried them out anyway. And I can safely say that from all the other author's formula, H B has the most repetitive and almost cynical one. Every book repeats itself so explicitly that even makes you think if is not it the same book with different names, I memorized it in only 4 books I've listened to the date: they're an unconventional couple who meet and there is sexual tension, before anything could even develop further they're already confessing to one another, then they have sex once or twice, after this comes the angst usually at hands of a third part who doesn't approve, they fight, they made up, the third part change their minds everything works out, one of them buys the other a strap-on (obviously) they have sex again but kinda lose their virginities? because penises and all that jazz, then happy ever after.
This is beyond dissapointing, I wasn't so against the formula with other authors because they were at least trying to vary a bit, use creativity (not only with the unconventional couple but with the whole handing of the story) but Harper Bliss apparently runs out of inspiration in the third chapter, which is just sad because they are specially good, they have talent, they can make things hundreds of times better if they only want, but instead choose this easy path which honestly? is disrespectful for us, the buyers who supports this authors.
Last, the sex scenes couldn't be more boring if they try, you can see that before the strap-on (that always makes its way to every book) the sex is mechanical, like a small reflection of the formula here: rub this, lick that, two fingers and they go to sleep. I like to think real lesbians are the ones who write and create those stories but even if they are is so narrow and tasteless, you can not feel anything by listening to it, it's almost like hearing someone baking a cookie, then when the strap-on arrives, the sex according to them is mind shattering (but it's not even described as such, if anything is just a heterosexual encounter with a plastic penis) and both of them act like they haven't been really having sex until then which is a bit weird, considering real lesbians don't rely that much in toys and specially not strap-on (that doesn't vibrate, doesn't rotate, doesn't feel good for both of them) so why? why write every single time about a sex practice that isn't even that much used and loved by lesbians? I apologise if I sound judgemental but I do really wonder and think a situation of a baby lesbian reading one of Harper Bliss books to guide herself through lesbian sex and finding out she has to buy this magnificent, life changing dildo with a lot of hard to figure out straps attached, and goes to have sex with it only to find how hard it is to even keep a ungratifying rhythm that will make you orgasm, and gives up after 20 mins of useless and repetitive motions and thinks that the bigger older lesbian in the book lied to her, and it almost wanna makes me cry.
I totally went in a rumble here, but even if I sound salty I'm not really a hater and all I really want is to listen to good lesbian love stories and this kinda got in my way, so if the author reads this, please don't take it as an attack as it is an opinion and a wishful thinking of better audiobooks to listen to, you probably know there aren't many out there so it's pretty sad to see all this wasted potential.
My best wishes to you. J.

Well, this was a very entertaining journey, I craved a story like this, casually and realistic with a display of characters with flaws and a development, this was one of my favorite audiobooks so far, Craden's voice is highly addictive too. 100% recommended.

Sarah Matamoros can’t complain. After immigrating from Mexico when she was nine years old, she’s content with the life she’s made for herself in sunny San Diego. She works hard at her mother’s housecleaning service by day and spends the evenings with her quirky eight-year-old daughter, Grace. From a very young age, Emory Owen had several concepts drilled into her head. Success is everything. Be the best. Fight your way to the top. Expectations were high in the Owen household and the world was watching. Born into a high society family, Emory never wanted for anything...at least anything money could buy.

It was a bit slow, but relaxed and chill story, pretty simple too, I noticed it has a wrong content description in the explicit part, this book is in fact not explicit at all, not sexual or violent content, I believe it should be more accurate the description cage.
