This was my first foray into the world of LGBTQI and F/F romance and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. It portrayed the beginnings of lesbian relationships and the intimacy that can be experienced between two women.
The writing style was easy to follow and allowed me to fully experience the emotions and feelings of the protagonists involved within the narrative.
There were a few intimate scenes within the novella that were written tastefully and done with elegance, this portrayed the sensitivity and gentleness of Love.
Within the narrative Bliss cleverly delves into the affect that past relationships have on the development and creation of future ones. This was done by the writer by not focusing on the ending of relationships, but rather exploring the varying psychological impact this has had on the main protagonists during the creation of future relationships and sexual exploits.
The reason for my 3 star-rating is due in part to my overall experience of this piece of literature. For me, personally, the narrative was predictable and I could foresee the direction the story was taking. When reading I normally prefer a narrative with plenty of twists and turns to keep me on the edge of my seat. However, I do suppose this is all part of the 'novella' format, where there is not much room to elaborate and create the 'twists and turns'.
Overall, I did enjoy it, and I do see myself reading the further 3 novella's within the 'High Rise' series. Stay tuned for feedback on further stories within this collection...
