Beautiful...everyone deserves a second chance.

I've read this title before but it's one of those that I will periodically pickup and read again. Despite how everything played out between Leigh and Jodie, destiny was ultimately fulfilled. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.

Overall a good story, but

The story was good enough, not the best of Harper Bliss though (after my opinion).
I think the preformance of the reader brooke the feeling of the book a bit. She dis not switch voices between the different characters witch made it a bit difficult to follow the story, and it was a bit to monotone.

There is only one.

Being a romantic, I truly believe there is only one person in our existence who can complete us. Sadly, we may never actually meet that person. Or perhaps our paths may briefly intertwine and then pass into nothingness. But for the lucky few, there that moment when you meet and know that this is the one and only one.
Tragically, we often make decisions or mistakes which drive us apart, and here in lies this precious tale of two such people.
Filled with loads of angst, and tears that at some point you feel that there is little hope for a happy ending.
But of course Ms. Bliss would never let us close the book shedding tears over a tragic ending 😭.
There is loads of heat here, and lots of kinky sex, but it is not gratuitous, but really allows us inside the heads of the two main characters.
Also, thanks to Ms. Jennings for using her talents to give believable voice to each character.
Bravo 👏👏

Holy Haut!!

Holy Haut!! This story was tantalizing, erotic, and romantic all at the same time. It moves up my list to one of my favorite books.

Love the storyline

I like how this book was written and how it takes on 2 different perspectives. The storyline is 5 stars ready for me. The narration is what brought my overall to 4 stars. Laura has a very nice voice and did well with the reading but there were no differences on the voices between Leigh and Jodie. If I did not hear the name at the start of each chapter than I would have to wait until I was clued in. Other than that I really enjoyed the book.

Excellent Storyline!

Fantastic writing as always from Harper Bliss! Very different story than a traditional lesbian romance. Very emotional, but included the hot scenes Bliss always delivers.

Incredible story

Incredible book! Favorite Harper Bliss book I’ve read/listened to. I only wish I read it instead of listened to it. Complex characters and plot, and overall beautiful story. It was very erotic too. I liked the BDSM, it wasn’t too extreme. Very emotional at times, but that’s what made it so good. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good lesbian romance.

I can’t lie

Can’t lie I really struggled to make it through this book. The story itself was ok, but the narration made it feel like I was watching paint dry. At times it was hard to tell which character was which because everything was so monotone

A VERY PLEASANT READ

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It held my attention throughout, wondering if these love-at-first-sight women would be able to overcome their differences and stay together forever. No tragic love here, and that is just what we need to know these days.

tears

I've more than 20 of Harpers' books on audible, but I've never cried so much, happy and sad, than I did with this. beautifully intergecting past and present throughout, and I also loved both leading ladies which rarely occurs. Laura Jennings also portrays the characters with the right inflection throughout. wonderful experience ladies ty.

Love it.!

Have read the print version a few times and now have listened to the Audible edition . This is a really excellent story. Harper Bliss writes so well and I think this is one of her best. The narration was also excellent. I highly recommend the book itself and the narrator.
