The author ones more broadened my mind especially because the topic is unusual or maybe even a bit controversial for some. I found it a truly engaging story and I was very intrigued by the way the story unfolded for the two protagonists Sophie and Dolores. I could feel their deep love and passion and commitment to each other leap off the page. It’s a journey filled with courage to happily ever after, stories that Harper writes so well.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone who loves love even in the direst of circumstances.
The story centers around Sophie, whose boyfriend just died in a bicycle accident. Sophie becomes close with Ian’s (boyfriend) mother, Dolores, as they both try to process their grief. What comes out of it is a highly unrealistic psychological nightmare, that made me extremely uncomfortable. Now let me put out there that I have absolutely no issue with the age gap. Like at all. What I truly took issue with was how I felt this story is in no way a happily ever after, but actually a happy for now. Now the blurb mentions there is some controversy, which is speaking to Sophie falling in love with her dead-ex’s mother. But I didn’t find it controversial so much as I found it sad. Because neither of them dealt with any of their crap before they jumped into bed AND THEN a relationship together. Sophie keeps claiming to be falling in love with Dolores, but again, I don’t buy it. Not when the supposed love of your life has only been dead for 2 months. I think both of these women needed some serious emotional, mental, and psychological counseling before getting into a relationship with each other. I have absolutely no issue with them having a relationship with each other, hence I don’t find it controversial, but I do take issue with jumping into a relationship when you’re carrying this kind of baggage that you haven’t even remotely dealt with yet. Having gone to school for psychology, this sent all kinds of red flags up in the air.
Also, to be fair, I couldn't help but continue to think about my own husband passing away and how that would affect me. Because that is such an emotional thing for me to think about, I had a really hard time getting past that, which also lead to a surprising need to skim the sex scenes (I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever done that) Plus, I just have a hard time with the dead-ex trope in general.
Given everything I said above, why a whole 3 stars? Because, as always, Harper knows how to craft incredibly deep and multi-dimensional characters. She also is an impeccable writer that has truly honed her craft. The other thing is that I actually really did appreciate something very specific in this story. I liked how it wasn’t pushed that Sophie all of the sudden HAD to identify as bi or lesbian. Her thoughts in story are “why does it matter?”. It doesn’t Sophie, it doesn’t. And that is something I was very thankful to have put out there. Labeling oneself is quite draconian in my opinion, and I would like to see more stories venture into the ‘it doesn’t matter’ category.
Thank you Harper Bliss for providing a copy of this story to me, in exchange for my honest review.
If you believe, daughters look for men that reminds them of their father, in this story, I felt that Sophie was looking for a mother...
Is this love going to last? I believe if it is true love yes, if this is an unconscionable rebound well the happy ever after is yet to be known.
As long as you're happy. Age is just a number.
