Harlow has headed back to school in her
thirties and is looking to get her life back together for
herself and her daughter. When she falls in lust with the
hot young, white barista at the campus coffee shop, she is
sure he would never fall for her curvaceous black self.
When he asks her out for a date, she has to get past her low
self-esteem in order to reach the prize – love.
Harlow’s feelings about herself and her life are instantly
recognizable. From her confidence about her body to her
lust for Luke, the barista, most women would see themselves
in Harlow. Luke is a little harder to understand. His lust
for her is so all-consuming and his responses to her anger
and lack of confidence are a little strong and mature for
someone his age. Which is probably the point. But it’s fun
to see a romance that shows that age and race should not be
deterrents to a great relationship and Harlow’s Heaven
does do this.
