No Other Love is the 6th book in the Pink Bean series by Harper Bliss - and it continued to add to the unique stories already told.
Harper has been clever within this story, as she tackled the dynamics of an 'older' lesbian relationship, but she did this delicately and sensitively.
I liked the way the story highlighted the struggles and pitfalls faced within a lesbian relationship that has lasted over two decades.
Jane and Annie are lovely as a couple and I really felt that I got to know both of them really well when reading this book. However, I did feel more of a connection with Jane, due to being a writer myself - I could really relate to her.
One occasion while reading this Jane was telling her story and I got so into it she even inspired me to sit down and write, which I duly did. I had not felt a buzz like that in quite a while.
The reason why I only gave this book three out of five stars is due to the fact that I wanted more. I thought there was an opportunity (and still is) to know the story of the beginning of their relationship, like what Harper did with Sheryl and Kristin's story, there is space here to do this.
I'm being greedy here, but as I was reading it I couldn't help but feel that if I knew more of their back story I would have more context to the issues they were facing together in the present.
Harper I think there could be an opportunity for another Pink Bean Novella here! Can't wait to see what happens next...
