Harper Bliss tells the tale of Jessica Porter and her romance with escort Liz in the eighth instalment of the Pink Bean series, Crazy For You.
We were first introduced to Jessica Porter in the previous novel within the Pink Bean series - Love Without Limits, where she gets involved in the physical part of Jo and Caitlin's relationship.
This book struck a cord with me personally as within the narrative it tackles breast cancer and the psychological effects it has on an individual. The reason this resonated so deeply with me is that I have had a number of family members who have also been affected by this type of cancer.
Hearing Jessica's story it highlighted to me how some of my relatives must have felt and possibly what they must have gone through when they had gone through their cancer treatment. It was quite emotional.
The relationship issue tackled in this novel is between Jessica and Liz, who Jessica hires as an escort, but ends up falling in love with. At the beginning I did question the validity of this relationship and the intentions of Liz. However, as they spent more time with each other and I learnt more about both of them it did become genuine and I did feel the chemistry between the both of them. It's an interesting concept.
I gave this book four-out-of-five stars because I really enjoyed it. It hit be personally and drew out emotions in me. The concept of the book I also felt was intriguing and I liked both of the characters - seeing both their strengths and vulnerabilities. This is definitely a must read...
