There’s a reason why Harper Bliss is my favorite author! The woman really knows how to write steamy, dramatic, entertaining and sexy books! This one was no different , a story full of entertainment involving 4 very sexy characters.
The story is set in Hong Kong which makes it even more interesting because I’ve always wanted to visit it but never got the chance. I liked the fact that it gave you a glimpse of that cosmopolitan part of the world.

Very solid 5 stars ..

After having a few false starts with Ms Bliss's writing, including this one quite awhile ago, I took a chance with French Kissing and quite enjoyed it. So I decided to go back to this one to see if my opinion changed, but unfortunatelyit didn't.

This didn't hold the same depth or interest as the above mentioned one. There was a very thin/non-existent plot, character development lacking, but a whole lotta sex. If you want sex, read this book. Some scenes quite enjoyable and tantalizing, and I

First book that set places in my hometown, of course I'll have to grab a copy! I find the setting of this book very interesting. It's also quite true that if you live in an expat community, no matter how big the city's population is, it is sometimes a very small place.

I love the dynamics, the contrasts and the alternate voices of the characters. The quite oriental and morally minded Alex vs Maddie, who's last relationship was a fling with a married woman from the office; the steady and more

I really enjoyed this story. I originally got the first two novellas of this story for free on Amazon and then decided to just buy the collection in full because I was enjoying the story so much.

Four lesbian women living in Hong Kong trying to balance career, friendship, heartache and romance. This story is made up of 4 different novellas which alternate POVs. Novellas 1 and 3 are from Alex and Maddie's perspective while 2 and 4 are from Nat and Isabella's perspectives. I really enjoyed the

Loved it!! Drama and hot sex.
I felt like the two novellas in the middle dragged, but the first and the last one were good.

I loved this and the way it's structured. It would have been okay to read the novellas individually, but they work really, really well as a collection.

High Rise: The Complete Collection — Harper Bliss (4 books) 275pg. July 4-8, 2018

Note: This is a super sexy book involving four women of consenting age. There are explicit sexy scenes. Only intended for readers of legal age: 21 and above in America. Note: There is a bondage scene at the beginning of book three.

Harper Bliss is a very prolific writer. She has great ideas. I’m always attracted to her plots. So, then: I don’t know why I don’t enjoy her books more?

This was one set that started out

Page turner that keeps you glued to your kindle

I love that Alex and Nat are besties and that they care so deeply for one another. That they are honest and wish each other happiness and are supportive to each other. When these two Engage their friendly neighbors Maddie and Isabella the older and wiser ladies of the same apartment building, thats when the sparks fly.
I enjoyed the whole series in one day and I loved it. I had my moments when I was so angry at Nat and angry at Alex but that didn’t

God I don’t know what took me so long to read this story because I can say with full certainty that it’s the best thing story I’ve read of Harpers! Loved he setting for the story and how it was in the perspective of each character. I’m hoping she continues this story as I’d like to see the characters from where they left off

Another great series! Another one I didn't want to end. These books are about so much more than just sex. Although, they are some pretty great moments! It's about friendships, emotional toil and how to navigate it all.

Very enjoyable reading

This is one of those stories that really snatch you away! It has it all great characters, very interesting plot, endearing romance and deeply erotic sex!!
I love how the story developed and the switching point of view. I can see myself re-reading it soon!!

Great book

As usual for your books this was very hot. You should not read it out in public unless you don't mind people seeing you blush. Awesome quick read with beginning middle and end.

Four of a kind.

There is a saying that “age and treachery overcome youth and skill every time.” In matter of the heart it helps to have all of these. Four diverse women comes together as friends and pair up. Highly recommend.

Life connected with Isabella, Maddie, Nat and Alex proves to be exciting and complicated. I loved the premise of the series, the interactions, drama and of course the sex. Better appreciated as a collection and not individually. Now one of my "go to" books. Great job Ms. Bliss

A Good Read

I am a big fan of Harper Bliss. I have several of her books. This one had me laughing and crying. The characters were believable.
I dare you to try and start a High Rise novella and not finish it in one sitting- it is impossible! The High Rise series consists of four wonderfully written novellas that detail the love lives of four women living in a sleek high rise building in Hong Kong. Together we experience first dates, first fights, heartbreak, and of course the Return of the Evil Ex. Will the intertwined lives each find their happily ever afters?

What I liked the most about this series is the author doesn't fall into

The setting in very well written.I have first read Fool for love and I was instantly hooked. You just want to finish the book and read more. It is very easy to read and because of the names of the person above the chapters you get in the minds of different people. That is what I liked the most. Not just 1 person that is the lead, but 4 different persons with their own characters.

If there will be a sequel on this book, I will certainly buy that book.

Galloped through this after reading the first in the series last week. Two lesbian couples, and their lives in a luxury Hong Kong high rise. There's a satisfying amount of angst as the women work through friendships and relationships, and a sizzling degree of heat that is an integral part of the story (particularly in Nat and Isabella's relationship). A thoroughly enjoyable read.

This was a fun packed, steamy read. I loved the way you got to grow with the characters. The story was original and entertaining with the right mix of emotions. I was sad when it ended but I'm looking forward to seeing what the author does next. Check out my reviews on the separate books for more.

Now, this was just a straight up bodice ripper. Fun story, reasonably well written- but basically just lesbian erotica with a plot. I liked it anyway.
