Bliss may not have won me over into liking Céline Dion songs (I’m with Ash on this one. In fact I couldn’t stop laughing when listening to Gloria’s favourite Dion song. Ash’s words were in my head😜) However, i am firmly cemented into place as the Harper Bliss Number one Fan (In my lunch box anyway).
I did learn something about myself whilst reading If You Kiss Me Like That. I do believe I now have a “thing” for Lesfic stories where the main protagonist discovers her true sexuality later in life, as Gloria does. Also, I am quite partial to an age gap, even better when the women are over 40 or 50.
What I did already know, was that Ms Bliss is the Queen of the slow, erotic, highly charged, deep emotional love scene. Page after page of gloriously fresh build up. Ladies, you are going to need your hand fans or air conditioning for this years summer read. The chemistry between Gloria and the younger Ash is divine. The banter quick witted and entertaining. I can seriously see this as one I will reread many times.
I loved this book. I finished it this morning and already I don’t quite know what to do with myself, as I’m missing Gloria and Ash already. ❤️💜💙💖💛
The simmering attraction between two grief wounded woman. A friend of your mothers, can they over come the complications of family acceptance. Will it just be a secret illicit affair or can they take another chance at all consuming love. This is a fantastic story and Harper Bliss has written one often of the best first kisses I have ever read.
An age gap romance from Harper Bliss is always welcome and in this instance, the significant statistic is that these are two middle-classed professional women one is 42 and the other is 54. Different aspects of this lesbian romcom will appeal to different readers. I found it heartening that these middle-aged characters are older and appreciate the inclusively aspects of diversity which runs throughout.
I struggled to be able to picture these characters. Descriptions are fleeting and layered which build up to an extent throughout the course of the book, subsequently the reader doesn't get an immediate connection with the main characters. I also found the characters lacking in comparison to Harper's usual detailed description. I found it all a bit bland to be honest.
A lovely, endearing, funny and ‘couldn’t put down’ read by Harper Bliss who is the best at age gap books. A super read, loved the characters and the storyline, superbly written as always. Totally recommend.
