blessed harlot pharma series shorts Reviews
Blessed Harlot is set in the same world as Everywhere Its You and Until Its You (by the same author), but with different characters. This bite sized story immediately immerses you in a futuristic setting that is both fascinating and mildly unsettling. I found myself rooting for Vero from the start. Suspenseful, unpredictable, and thoroughly entertaining!
Interesting fast paced plot that kept me interested and guessing the whole time. Vero, a woman that wants to progress in life, studied something she likes and is good butvat her place of work was presented with choices that could change her life forever. Will her ambition obliterates her moral and what is right ? Well , to know you need to read this short story! I recommend it...
This is the third thing I've read by C.B. Salem. It's set in the same futuristic Chicago world as the previous two books, though this one is a short story perfect for when you want something entertaining to finish in an afternoon, on a flight, or a beach.This short tells the story of a budding stylist/esthetician who gets more than she bargained for when a billionaire client of her boss, the spa owner, comes in after hours for a special appointment.I found the plot suspenseful. It really held my interest, but I especially like the world building and character development. The young esthetician is definitely grittier than I was at her age, but I can relate to starting out and could see where one might feel conflicted between doing what she needs to advance her career and honoring her instincts.I really enjoyed the future the book created. It was interesting to think the role the pharmaceutical industry might have on the beauty industry in the future. Though I will say it is a bit eery in that the book feels far enough in the future to be interesting, yet at the same time what the author describes seems totally plausible. It reminded me a bit of a black mirror episode in that way.Hoping for more pharma series shorts from C.B. Salem as this made for some read pleasure reading.
A light fast paced well written short story which captivated me from the beginning. Vero, smart but innocent, strong but vulnerable, with dreams and may be short sighted. It can be a light fun read or it may present the reader with good questions to ponder about. Life sometimes presents sharp turns that can change everything.
