    When love finds you, resistance is futile. For Jill Becket it’s like a lightning strike – a coup de foudre – when Amelia Shaw walks into her practice. Her new client is not only gorgeous, when she starts talking her sexy low voice is making poor Jill squirm in her seat. The effect is such that Jill is finding it hard to do her job properly. Amelia is clueless in all this. Falling in love is so not on her mind right now, she only wants to focus on herself and working on getting whole again.

Harper Bliss still knows how to keep this series going strong. It has been such a joy to go through the whole audio book series. The fabulous Angela Dawe is putting her awesome sauce all over it. The voice she chose for Amelia will make you ovulate on the spot. Have mercy. Solid series, solid writing, solid voice acting. Just go listen to them all. f/f Themes: bi-sexual, burn-out, soccer, The Darlinghurst Darlings, ethical dilemma, you can’t date a client, if a voice could make you pregnant I would be a woman in trouble right now. 5 Stars

    This is book 10 and last, at the moment of writing (March 2021), in the Pink Bean series which follows a group of lesbian friends who gather in a coffee shop in Sydney. Most books can be read as standalone as each focuses on a couple’s relationship but there will be minor spoilers of the previous books. This particular novel is slightly connected to book 9, More than Words, but it shouldn’t be an issue to follow this story without reading the previous one.

Most books can be read as standalone as each focuses on a couple’s relationship but there will be minor spoilers of the previous books. This particular novel is slightly connected to book 9, More than Words, but it shouldn’t be an issue to follow this story without reading the previous one. Jill Becket is a successful therapist whose life is turned upside down when she meets her new client Amelia Shaw who needs help to recover from severe burnout. Amelia is gorgeous and intelligent and Jill literally falls in love at first sight. Love is very low in the list of priorities for Amelia but as she gets to know Jill in a personal capacity, she starts to have feelings that had been buried inside her for a long time. Will both women find love in each other despite their professional and personal circumstances? Throughout this series, the author doesn’t shy away from controversial themes such as alcoholism, sex workers, moral double standards, infidelity, and polyamorous relationships, among others. In this book, Ms. Bliss presents the difficult relationship between therapist and patient and the taboo of a possible intimate relationship between them. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure if the author was going to pull the romance off because of the delicate nature of this type of relationship but she did it very well. All the stories in the series are character-driven and show a particular transformation journey for the main protagonists. Ms. Bliss is a master at creating dialogues and this particular novel highlights this fact. Slowly but surely, the author builds the leads’ relationship with what is said and what it’s left unsaid. The scenes in the therapy practice are an excellent example of this and show Ms. Bliss’s talent at her best. The author navigates the dangerous waters of the conflict between ethical professional conduct and human impulses by balancing a very tight equilibrium with proficiency. She doesn’t show magical solutions or is tempted by the “love conquers all” trope. I found the result plausible and satisfying at the same time. Once again the audiobook version was narrated by Angela Dawe and, once again, she did an outstanding job. All the characters’ voices are distinct and the performance of the varied range of emotions that the characters go through is excellent. At the risk of repeating myself, Ms. Dawe enriches this series thanks to her fantastic interpretations. Another winner for Ms. Bliss. Here’s hoping for more stories in the Pink Bean universe. 4.5 stars. Length: 6 hrs and 34 mins

    This book put me in a bit of a conundrum. It's Harper Bliss so the writing is great and the sex is ridiculously hot - all good. But the "forbidden love" part of it made me somewhat uncomfortable.

It's Harper Bliss so the writing is great and the sex is ridiculously hot - all good. But the "forbidden love" part of it made me somewhat uncomfortable. In this installment, Psychiatrist Jill Becket falls head over heels in lust with Amelia Shaw, a new client who comes to her practice to work through a severe case of burnout that has left her nearly incapacitated. Jill sees Amelia only twice but knows right away that she won't be able to see her professionally because of her inappropriate feelings, so refers her to another qualified therapist and is completely honest about why. I appreciated that dilemma and could see it happening. I struggled, though, with what happened after that. Ethically, Jill knows she should never see Amelia again in any personal way. But what happens when you just can't stay away and the other person doesn't want you to? Definitely food for thought. The Pink Bean series introduced me to Harper's work and I was very excited to have a new entry. She said that she wanted this to be a feel good work without a lot of drama for people just to be able to enjoy. And while I appreciated some things about it, I could never quite relax into it. This probably stems from my previous career of being a high school teacher where there was a very definite professional line when it came to teacher/student relationships. The same applies here. I'm curious if others will see it the same way. And while I certainly understood the lust, it turned into an insta love situation which for me was just too quick. They barely knew each other and Amelia still had some things to work through. This wasn't the strongest in the series but knowing Angela Dawe will be narrating the audiobook definitely means I'll be experiencing this again. If she wasn't, one read would probably be enough. 3.5 stars

    Narrated by Dawe, listen to it. Wait, I think I wrote exactly that not too long ago. Oh well. Pretty straightforward once past the initial conflict. Guess would have wanted a bit more. No need to read all 9 previous books to enjoy.

    3.4 stars Though I liked this book, I didn’t love it as much as I usually love books Harper Bliss. It could be that my expectations are to high because of that, but in my opinion this was not one of the best in the The Pink Bean series. As always this was well written and the characters were sympathetic but they didn’t draw me in. This romance felt a bit too glib to me. But as I said I still liked this book and I am going on to read Bliss’s newest ‘That Woman Next Door’ soon.

I know it's difficult to throw in 20 people but a girl can dream. 😜 3.5 - 4 stars Finally done with The Pink Bean series!

What I'd like to address with the audiobook version is what I call "The Dawe Effect." Angela Dawe is so damn good that she elevates every work she narrates.

So while I was uncomfortable with the premise while reading it, I was much less so listening to her performance of it. Interesting. What still nagged at me was the insta-love aspect. I guess love at first sight is possible, but it seemed more lust at first sight and I think more needed to happen to convince me that it wasn't Amelia's looks and low, smoky voice alone that Jill was so drawn to. And Dawe's take on that voice?? Lord. Have. Mercy. Also - when Dawe performed the love scene it was so hot that I nearly had to strap myself to the chair to prevent myself from sliding right out of it. I won't repeat what she whispered here, but let me just say, that scene alone was worth the cost of the whole damn book. lol No kidding! Just scorching, folks. Again - I will purchase anything Dawe narrates because she's just so talented. And I definitely think the audio version is the way to go. Really, I love the Pink Bean series in general. 4.5 stars overall - 5 stars for narration.

    It's always a joy to return to Sydney and visit with my old friends of the Pink Bean series. This book revolves around therapist Jill and her new client Amelia and of course, there are some guest appearances by characters from the series.

It's not necessary to read the other books in the series, but I highly recommend you do, for one they are fun and secondly, although not 100% necessary, it is good to have some backstory n some of the characters/ relationships. When Amelia walks into Jill's office, Jill doesn't know what hit her. She writes it off as being the thrill of a new client, but when she can't stop thinking about Amelia she knows she's in trouble. Amelia on her part has suffered a burnout and falling in love, or even self-love is not even on her radar. But when Jill has to confess to Amelia about why she can't see her as a client any longer, Amelia is taken aback and to her own surprise finds herself interested. Jill's ethical code prevents her from going for a relationship with Amelia. But when they meet at the Pink Bean that all might change. This is such a sweet romance, low to no angst or drama. Only some personal/ professional struggles. This doesn't mean this book is boring, far from it actually. It is so nice to read something so lighthearted and wholesome. I had some issues with how infatuated Jill is with Amelia, almost like a puppy following its owner around. I also prefer Amelia's character over Jill's. Even with burnout and therapy being a big part of this story I feel like it doesn't really get dark, or to a dark place. I flirted with burnout a couple of years ago and my best friend is still struggling through one. I know it's not the same for everyone, but the way it is addressed and "resolved" in this book is just a bit too easy for my liking. But I understand where Harper Bliss is coming from, this book is intended to be a lighthearted romance and that is what is as well. *ARC received in exchange for a voluntary and honest review*

To be precise, I actually read one other book of the Pink Bean series and actually so much didn't like it that I wasn't sure if Harper Bliss was the right author for me. Anyway, as I said, this sounded intriguing. The book starts with doctor and therapist Jill and her newest client Amelia, with whom Jill falls instantly in lust.

Anyway, as I said, this sounded intriguing. The book starts with doctor and therapist Jill and her newest client Amelia, with whom Jill falls instantly in lust. What I really liked was that Jill really tried to do the right thing and dropped Amelia as a client as soon as she could. It was very brave and mature of her to do this in an open way. Although she clearly struggled, she stayed true to her principles and work ethics. I could also understand Amelia, who although in a vulnerable position, didn't suddenly want to quit seeing Jill. Her motives were more unclear at first, she probably felt just flattered in the beginning, but she clearly liked what she discovered. I also liked how Amelia's personality of being bossy and taking charge came through and how it became quickly clear that although that it started as lusting after each other at first, they both were actually quite well suited and good for each other. Plus, Jill’s feelings for Amelia quickly ran very deep. So for her it wasn‘t lust anymore, she was in love. What I also really liked was that this book was really heavy on dialog. There really didn‘t happen a lot, except for Jill and Amelia getting to know each other. It felt very intimate. I liked that, but I would have liked the book better if there was a bit more happening than them enjoying sex and Amelia getting her life back together again. A small thing I didn't like in the beginning was the sheer amount of characters that weren't really important for the story. I am aware that readers who have read all 9 previous Pink Bean books will probably feel the exact opposite and love to reconnect with them. But I was a seriously overwhelmed because naturally, characters weren't really introduced but presented as if I should know them. Luckily, this wasn't an issue anymore later in the book. Angela Dawe is fabulous as always.

    I can’t believe we have ten books in the Pink Bean series now! How did that happen? I went into reading this book with trepidation because I wasn’t wowed with book 9, ‘More Than Words’ in the Pink Bean Series. I was hoping for something spectacular from ex-escort, Katherine.

I was hoping for something spectacular from ex-escort, Katherine. But I had nothing to worry about. Harper Bliss nailed Jill and Amelia’s story. Yes, this book is a little taboo with the Patient/Therapist relationship, but Harper Bliss manages to navigate it very well and at no point did I feel their relationship was in wrong any way. What I did enjoy about this book most of all is how fast-paced it is. There is no room for worry when Jill is so forthright in her feelings for Amelia. Amelia, on the other hand, is confused as to why someone like Jill would want her, but honestly, Jill is an expert in making Amelia feel comfortable and at ease. It was a really lovely story to get swept away by. Well, Amelia doesn’t really get why Jill would want her but Jill oft! The chemistry for her is there the moment they meet. She can’t help but imagine Amelia in all states of undress. The passion they have is hot, and when they finally fall into bed, it’s a long delicious sex scene that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I want to explain why I am giving this book 4.5 stars. It’s a great book and usually would be very deserving of the five stars. However, after reading ‘A Breathless Place’ (2020) by Harper Bliss, I feel like that is now the book to beat in her backlist. But this book is still very worth a spot on your must-read list. Great book. I really hope this isn’t the end for our ladies of Darlinghurst/ Pink Bean as I have become very fond of them all. I can’t wait to see what Harper Bliss does next.

    Admittedly, I wondered how Harper Bliss would follow up the amazing and stunning A Breathless Place, one of my top books of the year. The reason she is one of my favorite authors is because she never shies away from the tough or controversial storylines. At First Sight is a "taboo" romance (I love those!) featuring a therapist who falls instantly for a patient. As her office is next door to the Pink Bean, we get to see lots of cameo appearances from some of our favorite Bliss characters.

Although it can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading the nine previous books in the series, as they (individually and combined) cover a LOT of fun and interesting topics. Another reason I always enjoy Harper Bliss's books is that she does not seem to follow the standard lesfic tropes and each book has its own voice. As I was reading At First Sight, I realized that it can actually be categorized as a "slow burn", something we don't see all the time in her work. The writing is smooth and easy to read, the characters are extremely well developed, and the story is unlike any before it. A sweet, low angst romance that's a perfect way to end this year.

    Love at first sight! I love this trope because the lightning strike described in this book literally happened to me and then I happily married her many years later. This book had a lot of other great layers though. I really enjoyed the very relatable issue of burnout and also how professional ethics is important and should be handled with care. This was one of my favorite of the entire series.

    I love visiting the Pink Bean series. This series is best read with a wonderful cup of coffee. I particularly like that Harper Bliss writes about characters of all types. In At First Sight, the Jill and Amelia are in their late 40s. Jill is a counselor who works with Amelia, suffering from burnout. A lightning bolt hits Jill when she sees Amelia walk in the door. This is clearly a huge issue regarding ethics and therapy.

What follows are some awkward unintentional meetings. We don’t really get a sense of Jill’s life, other than her bisexuality and her talks with fellow therapists. On the other hand, Amelia is on a soccer team, which is pivotal in her life, since her friends are on the team. There are many cameos with previous Pink Bean characters, some of which were pretty funny. I liked the story, but both main characters were very cerebral. To me, it felt like they were analyzing everything, even when they’re in bed together. The self-analysis got a bit tiresome for me, but the rest of the story was entertaining. This is a Harper Bliss novel so you know it will be well written, and there will be some steamy scenes. This is not my favorite Pink Bean novel, but I enjoyed it.

She has to stay calm but she also needs to be in Amelia‘s presence and hear that sultry voice and see this gorgeous soft Lips... Many of the favorite characters from the other „Pink Bean“ Books are back and giving off their usual loving teasing about everything and for everyone as usual.

Es ist schwierig und sie kann absolut nichts gegen ihre ständig wachsenden Gefühle für ihren neuen Kunden unternehmen. Sie muss professionell sein. Sie muss ruhig bleiben, aber sie muss auch in Amelias Gegenwart sein und diese schwüle Stimme hören und diese wunderschönen weichen Lippen sehen ... Viele der Lieblingsfiguren aus den anderen „Pink Bean“ -Büchern sind zurück und geben ihre übliche liebevolle Hänselei über alles und für alle wie gewohnt ab. Eine unglaublich heiße und herzerwärmende Ergänzung zu einer meiner Lieblings Buch Serien!

A brand new deep theme to address, and the sheer ability of Harper to make an amazing and very enjoyable journey, without weighing down the importance of the theme. Although this book is aimed to be much lighter and make us smile, leaving us with a happy feeling, two words... Mission accomplished. Couldn't be better. Amelia Shaw makes a much-needed pause from work and in general, to deal with a substantial burn out. After looking for the perfect therapist she gathers the courage to make an appointment. Jill Becket has always been living her professional life by an ethics code, but the minute her new client enters her office, she knows she’s in deep trouble. Will they be able to sort all the obstacles out or will stop them? This is simply another hit, the story is very engaging, the characters so enthralling, and very relatable. I could feel and understand what Amelia was going through. I can relate to her and her story so much, not completely, but mostly in certain ways. I loved how her and Jill's story is developed. I know many don't believe in love at first sight, but it does exist. That moment you see someone for the first time and draws you in, completely, disarming you in the most exquisite way, Harper did a great job describing that amazing and disrupting feeling, in the best way. The humour in this one is also something to look for. Another plus, of course, the perfect balanced share of sexiness. It's one of those books that, on one hand, you want to devour, because the storyline is a page-turner; but on the other hand, you want to take your time and enjoy slowly every bit of it, because is simply that outstanding. Another lovely thing, is we see glimpses of our beloved characters from other books, at least most of them. I absolutely loved that it ends on a very happy note. It left me with high spirits and a huge smile on my face. I enjoyed greatly this book and I'd gladly like to recommend it. I received an ARC copy of this book from the author and voluntarily leaving a review.

    I Love The Pink Bean Series! I was looking forward to the next book in the Pink Bean series and this did not disappoint. I love this couple. Jill the honest psychiatrist who has a love at first sight moment with her new client, Amelia. This is the start of the story and it unravels, with Jill realizing she can not treat Amelia. When she is forced to tell her why she is transferring her to another psychiatrist, Amelia wants the whole truth and when she hears why, she is surprised but yet curious. I Love The Pink Bean Series!

When she is forced to tell her why she is transferring her to another psychiatrist, Amelia wants the whole truth and when she hears why, she is surprised but yet curious. Their story takes off and I am so impressed with Jill and her honesty and the way she shows how she feels about Amelia on her face. Amelia who has suffered a burnout and is trying to find meaning in her stagnant life, suddenly has feelings surfacing regarding Jill. I loved where this story went and was absolutely honed in with the sexual tension that was between them. Harper Bliss is such a leader in how she lays out a sexual scene and we the reader get so absorbed. This book went too quickly and I needed to know more about Jill and Amelia’s relationship. Hopefully we will see them again in the next book.

    I'm always excited when Harper Bliss releases another novel let alone one in the Pink Bean series. I enjoyed visiting with characters from the other books but this one could be read as a stand-alone. Amelia Shaw was suffering from major burnout (life, work, love, etc) and finally contacted a psychiatrist for help. Little did she know how much her life would change when she walked into Jill Becket's office. Jill was immediately enamored with Amelia the first time they met, but the code of ethics I'm always excited when Harper Bliss releases another novel let alone one in the Pink Bean series.

Jill was immediately enamored with Amelia the first time they met, but the code of ethics prevented her from acting on her feelings. Fortunately, after a month of meeting's Jill finally admitted her true feelings for Amelia and referred her to another psychiatrist. This was a good book. I liked both main characters a lot and I could actually feel how strongly Jill felt for Amelia. The only drawback for me was that I had a difficult time believing Amelia actually felt strongly for Jill but other than that it was a cute read. Thanks, Harper for another fun read! I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Beautiful!!! The journey to love at its finest. Jill and Amelia were two unsuspecting souls finding what makes their lives complete. The Pink Bean series is a journey of discovery, pain, trust, love, and believing in oneself again. An amazing adventure of the heart, soul, and mind of our Lesbian community. I’m at a loss for words to give it higher praise. I love Harper’s fertile mind and her strength in tackling the difficult and painful issues we face. I have read her works over and over again.

    Another good book by Harper Bliss. This book is barely available as a paper back. But, personally, I believe that the books that are performed by Angela Dawe are simply amazing. There is something intriguing in her voice. The way she narrates the story enhances the quality of the characters altogether. I have read better books by Harper Bliss but this one is also one of her good works. The reason I gave this a 4 star rating is because I have read better books of Harper than this one.

I liked the story and being a therapist myself, it was comforting to know the boundaries and possibilities when it comes to falling in love with your clients.

    Another great instalment of the Pink Bean series. This one focuses on the relationship between Jill and Amelia with the other characters in the series taking more of a background role than in previous books. I would like to have seen maybe a little more of them - maybe next time? I really enjoyed the slow burn relationship and liked the two main characters warts and all. I would recommend this to readers who have enjoyed the series to date as well as those new to it. Thanks for the opportunity t Another great instalment of the Pink Bean series.

    This is book 10 of the Pink Bean series. You do not need to have read the previous books as this is a standalone, but it may help with the secondary characters backgrounds. Jill is a psychiatrist who is attracted to her new client Amelia. Amelia is in a bad way with her mental health and has had a burnout from work. Can they make their relationship work? Read the book and find out. Very well written as you would expect from Ms Bliss. Would highly recommend.

    Well she has done it again. The new installment of the pink bean series did not disappoint. I had to stop everything when i started reading their first non therapist conversation. I felt the attraction in my core and had to smile when Amelia pronounced the same sentiment. A great story of personal growth and awesome new love that was heartwarming and hot. I appreciated that in this present time there was little angst. It was also great to meet up with the other characters again

    An extremely positive book with a happy ending, a love story for new beginnings and with few challenges. The description of the characters is so detailed that they feel alive. This another excellent book of Harper Bliss as old friends are appearing in this new story. Every book this year of Harper is so different from each other but on the same time have common characteristics, a lot of emotions, feelings, making the reader to think but on the same time leaving you with a smile. Loved it
