High Rise Novella Two
This book continues directly on from where Fool For Love left off. This time featuring two of the secondary characters from Book One, Isabella and Nat.
Successful American writer Nat, had moved to Hong Kong to be with her lover, Claire. Claire had dumped Nat three years earlier and returned to New York. Since then Nat has been drinking too much and bedding pretty much any young woman in sight. She’s determined not to get hurt again.
Isabella is a psychiatrist and had been married to a man for fifteen years. Now she’s single and exclusively dating women at the moment. Isabella has her sights set on Nat. But Nat doesn’t want to know and tries pushing her into the arms of her friend Sophie. Will Isabella and Sophie hit it off? Or will Isabella hold out in the hope that Nat will eventually come round to her way of thinking?
I loved the first novella in this series, this second one is every bit as good. Harper’s writing is a pleasure to read. The book is a short, sweet page turner from start to finish. The characters all interact really well together. All are multidimensional and really easy to get to know and love. The scenic descriptions are vivid and I could easily picture myself being amongst the characters. Also, the story is hot, scorching hot.
This book does conclude and each is standalone. But you would be missing out on so much by not reading the first in the series. It really sets the scene for the books to follow.
I’m looking forward to the third in this series, hopefully soon.
