Publisher's Summary

Sophie Scott is a privileged but hard working London girl who's had just about enough of her mother's obsessive attempts to set her up with an eligible bachelor. She has no interest in dating and has never been in love.

When she meets her new colleague Mel on a business trip to Hong Kong, her whole world is turned upside down by the beautiful and independent woman who couldn't be more different from her. It's hard to hide from love in a city that never dims its lights. But love is never easy when everything you know changes....

Boring, predictably unrealistic. Meh narration

The dialogue was atrocious, no one talks like that. I struggled through to the end out of stubbornness. It got a tiny bit better. Another cookie cutter lesfic where they fall utterly in love within three minutes.

This wants to make me go to Hong Kong

This has been my favourite of Lise Gold books and I have read or listened to all of them. Hong Kong sounds worth the visit and the book shows the reader some hidden gems. The characters are engaging and the growing sexual tension and later love is palpable. I liked the narrator too, she was the perfect choice for this story. Definitely going to listen to it again.

Great book!

This was a cute little love story mixed with a tease of coming out. I saw it coming between the two characters, early on of course, it was plain as day! The coming out piece was a little bit down played but I suspect that wasn't the main point so it didn't need to be in the forefront. The characters had plenty of chemistry and and we're very likable. Overall, the book was pretty good, I loved the energy and enthusiasm of the narrator throughout the book. She brought the experience of seeing new places to life, found myself wanting plan my own trip. Def worth the listen/read!

Excellent Audio!

I loved Beyond the Skyline. Sophie and Mel are great characters. This is a workplace romance. The setting in Hong Kong certainly adds spice to the story. Jessica Jeffries does an excellent job with the narration.

No plot

I couldn't finish this dull and boring book. All they talk and think about is sex and there in absolutely no plot. I wasted my money on this author for a second time. Never again. I got thru about 3 hours and deleted it. Terrible

Too many Commas

The story was nice and enjoyable. The voice, actor spoke, with, to, many, commas. That, made, me, crazy.

Great Location and Romance

Hong Kong is one of my favorite places and a lesbian romance is a great way to learn about it’s marvelous magic. I loved the story and characters. Great performance and author. Recommend.
