A Quick Cute Story About Moving On
4 out of 5 stars
I needed a nice romance book to get me through a day I wasn’t feeling well. This did the trick.
Now, I started this series… 9 books in (probably my mistake) but I’m not 100% sure I missed anything. The Pink Bean is a coffee shop. There are two of them today, and this story is about building and opening the third one. I’m unsure if any of the characters bleed through any of the stories, but I didn’t feel lost or anything reading this.
More Than Words was a cute story about two different people from different lives learning to love again. One was ready but was being judged and the other had basically sworn off all affection, touch, etc. The story itself was interesting, most of it settling in on Katherine and Hera getting into their different lives. Hera story revolved a lot around her therapist and getting out of her comfort zone (while also being the builder that Katherine hires to build out the third Pink Bean location), while Katherine’s life was trying to move on from being a high end lesbian escort.
Other than giggling at the name Pink Bean (which even one of the characters, I think Hera, made fun of) I enjoyed this one. It was a nice shorter romance book that I was able to finish up in a day. There wasn’t a ton of drama but enough to make the story feel realistic.
Building walls around your heart is much easier than breaking them down.
Katherine Jones has said goodbye to her old job as a luxury lesbian escort and embarked on a new adventure with her best friend Rocco: opening a third branch of the Pink Bean coffee shop.
Rocco’s aunt, Hera Walker, is tasked with renovating the building of the new Pink Bean. It’s Hera’s first job after recovering from the sudden death of her long-term partner and she finds it hard to reconnect with her former life. Her first new client being an ex-call girl isn’t exactly helping.
Can Hera find the open-mindedness to see Katherine for who she truly is? And will Katherine, who has never suffered fools gladly, be able to break down the wall Hera has built around her?
