But for those somewhere ‘on the spectrum’ or loving someone with ASD, it is worth reading for the opportunity to reflect.
Personally the afterword resonated strongest for me:
“I’ve never fitted in anywhere. I’ve always felt like the odd one out. I’ve always struggled to make and keep friends. I’ve always been half-paralysed by anxiety. But throughout all of that, I’ve also managed to have a good life, meet so many lovely people, and experience some truly amazing stuff. One does not have to exclude the other.”
Thanks for making the (costly) effort to illustrate a neurodiverse woman taking chances and growing.
Anna is complex, reserved, keeps to herself and is certainly not expecting a woman as vibrant as Zoe turn up into her town and certainly not in her favourite bookstore. Zoe has an almost magical effect on Anna and we see her blossom as their relationship develops over the course of this trilogy.
I could say so much more about this story but I don’t want to spoil it for the reader. Just know that it is a wonderful story and unwinds to a beautiful love story of Anna discovering she needs to love herself before she can love another.

At the core of the premise is that Anna is on the Autistic spectrum, which complicates and slows down the burgeoning relationship with the new bookshop owner, Zoe. Since the author says she is ASD as well at the end of the book, she was clearly able to write with compassion and understanding, and it did not come across as laboured in any way. People with ASD display many different outcomes though, it is a "spectrum" after all. So if you or someone you know has ASD, it may help understand some aspects of the condition but not necessarily be a full answer. Perhaps the key messages were to get therapy and know that you could live a very happy and fulfilled life.
If you are not interested in ASD and have no personal experience of its effects, don't worry, this is still a lovely romance in which two people have an issue that they learn to overcome together... pretty much standard fare really. It was also good to see that Zoe's daughter Brooklyn developed a relationship with a boy at school. Too many lesfic authors seem to make every pairing LGBTQ+ which is so not representative of real life.
Buy it and enjoy!
The story of Anna and Zoe fascinates me from the first page. In a very typical HB manner, I get to know Anna and Zoe, their origins and surroundings. The first little quirks not only make the main characters endearing and amusing from the very first page (they like the letter J in that family, the teenage daughter wants to set up her mother with another woman). Small town milieu, everyone knows everyone
In this closely knitted community, Anna cannot hide her being “different” from her family or her surroundings. But she doesn't want to be perceived as "differently". A relationship (with Cynthia) has already broken down under this strain.
With HB, for the first time, I am immersing myself in a different, neurodiverse world. The story becomes increasingly problem-oriented, no longer quite so on the easy side of life. Like Zoe, I can no longer understand some of Anna's self-assessments.
In the second volume of the "Two Hearts Together" trilogy comes heavy stuff, really heavy reading. Definitely no more lesfic romcom. Anna's insecurities, fears and mental confusion. The low point of the second volume comes unexpectedly when Zoe breaks up with Anna and leaves Anna. At this point in time, Zoe's reaction seems completely exaggerated and not appropriate to the situation.
But Anna manages to attend her first therapy with April.
I'm beginning to understand that I'm accompanying Anne (and Zoe of course) on a journey, that as a reader I'm following Anna's and Zoe's development. Even if the future of the two leads is not yet foreseeable.
In the third volume "Two Hearts Forever" my hope for a HEA gets new nourishment. Anna is in therapy, Brooklyn, Zoe's daughter, develops a relationship with Anna, even Hamilton gets company and... ok, no, no spoilers here.
It helps a lot that I've already read some of Harper Bliss' books and can therefore hope for an HEA.
Few books have touched me like this one. I think each volume is incomplete on its own. The story of Anna and Zoe can only be truly understood in its entirety of the three volumes and with the "Authors Note" at the end of the third book.
The series is a must read for all HP fans!
By the way: while I'm writing this review, "This Is Me (Cover from "The Greatest Showman")- Musicality" is playing in the background!
A series about a main character with autism was long overdue and Harper Bliss has certainly written from the soul of many. Very authentic, slow-burn and touching, lovely characters and my listing could go on endlessly...
Harper's novels are just addictive!
