This was the sequel to Bliss' first book, Fool for Love (read my review here), in the High Rise series, and I must say I really enjoyed this one from start to finish.
Throughout this book I really enjoyed the character development of the main couple, Nat and Isabella, the new issues they faced about committing to each other and giving into their 'desires', made the story come to life.
Now that I have already read one of Harper's books, I am getting used to her easy, yet imaginatively descriptive writing style. After reading this book I felt sated and reassured that I got every piece of information needed for me to clearly follow and visualize the narrative.
Not only was I able to follow the narrative, I was able to follow the emotional roller-coaster journey the characters were undertaking. As a novella I sometimes find this is what is lacking, as you need to cram so much detail into such a short space, but Bliss did this with ease and it did not feel rushed in the slightest - actually, quite the contrary, it felt normal and flowed with the pace of the narrative, which is impressive.
My reasoning, and where I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is due in part, and not any representation on Bliss and her writing, but actually from more of a failing of the genre itself, is that the outcome was fairly predictable. But I must admit I did love travelling with the characters knowing the end goal and seeing the journey they took to get there.
Book 3 - No Ordinary Love is on my to-read list and I expect that I shall read this sooner rather than later; that's for sure. So, watch out for a full review in due course...
