My Review

Complimentary copy given by the author in exchange for an honest review

I have loved the Bliss series right from the beginning, but I must admit that this third installment is my favourite of them all – so far, that is. There is just something special about a sexy Dom who yearns to reconnect with his college sweetheart. The one who, even though she was scared to admit it, submitted to his particular tastes in the bedroom but never in their day-to-day life. There is a very fine balance to be respected and upheld in such a relationship, and I think that this fact really comes across in this romance.

Sean and Samantha met in college, and became a couple, but Sam’s insecurities about her submissive nature made her question if Sean only wanted a woman to control instead of her. She never told Sean the truth about her reasons for breaking up with him, however, and even though ten years have passed, she has never fully recovered from her broken heart.

Sean has now become a very successful lawyer and if you have read the first book in this series, you will know that he used to be one of Mac’s friends with benefits.

Fate decides to step in and Sean and Sam meet each other for the first time since their break-up in the hospital where Sean’s younger brother, Ryan, has been admitted to due to injuries caused by his less-than-stellar ways of living his life. Needless to say, their meeting brings up a lot of memories and feelings  – both good and bad – and Sean comes to realise that he still wants Sam. She is the only woman who has ever made his dom persona completely content and happy. And this time, Sean is determined to make Sam embrace her submissive nature – and to admit to herself that he is the only man who will ever be able to fulfil this need in her.

Like I stated above, Sean is my favourite of Mac’s former harem. I love his dominant ways – and in case you are wondering: he is not a complete dominant insofar as he likes being the one in control, sexually, and he gets a certain satisfaction – a thrill, actually – from having a woman submit to him, but that is it. And I admit that I enjoy reading about these types of men – they are some of my favourite BBFs. But what makes Sean different from others, I believe, is the fact that he does not hide his emotions once he trusts a person. He lets his feelings come out, making himself vulnerable to the people around him. He is the type of man who loves with his entire being once he has let you in, and that is what makes him easy to relate to.

As for Sam… well, she is stubborn, perhaps a bit hardheaded, but her hard exterior hides a very vulnerable woman, at least when it comes to matters of the heart. There are many things I admire about Sam: she is sassy, smart, and sexy. She is the mistress of her own fate, and the fact that she is a cop makes her also very interesting to me. She just needs that little extra confidence in order to believe that she can be enough for Sean – and what kind of woman does not need some reassurance from time to time? I found it so easy to connect with Sam while I was reading her story, and at no point in time did her decisions make me grow impatient with her, and I honestly never felt that they were hard to belive – quite the contrary, actually.

This book is slightly different from the others in the series. There are still lots of amusing and laugh-out-loud moments but it has a more serious tone at the same time. Or maybe I should rephrase that: it seems to have a more mature voice, and I really like that as both Sean and Sam are in their thirties. It makes them become more real to me. I most definitely believe that Miss Harvey shows us, once again, that she knows how to be diverse in her writing: her characters are unique, quirky, and believable, and you feel as if you could read about them for hours because you just want to be a part of their company.

I could go on and on praising this book, but I will stop now and let you make your own judgments about Sean and Sam’s story. Naturally, this is also why I have, again, chosen to be very vague about the actual story line. I will finish my review by saying this: if you are looking for a great second-chance love story, with incredibly hot and steamy romance, some wonderful, real characters, and some funny moments: read this book! I honestly believe that you will not regret it.

From my place in my small kitchen, I start hearing a weird vibrating type noise coming from my bedroom. I have a moment of sheer horror flash before my eyes then I remember that
a) I live alone.
b) I’m a thirty-two year old woman, so who the fuck cares that I have three vibrators, one vibrating egg, and a vibrating pair of underwear that Helen bought me on a dare.
c) I didn’t use my sex toy collection last night because I fell asleep on the couch in the middle of Castle.
d) The noise is not going away by me sitting here considering all the different vibrating toys I have in my top right drawer.
Right …
I jump up and run into my bedroom just as the noise stops. What the fuck! Now I’ll never know. I scan my room for anything suspicious and come up empty.
Then the noise starts again. I drop to my hands and knees, crawling around looking for the source of the ghost vibration, and giggling because now I’m thinking of what happens to sex toys after they die.
Helen would have a field day with this conversation.
I realize the sound is coming from my bed, so pulling back the comforter to an empty bed, I lift my pillows to find my phone vibrating like a kid at Christmas. I lunge for the phone and roll over onto my back at the same time, feeling pretty good about my ability to answer the call and do a side roll at the same time.

“Sean, I—”

No. She’s not getting another moment to talk herself out of this, out of us. She’s been running for way too long. This time it’s for keeps. This time, I’m not letting anything come between us—not my brother, not her mother, not her job and not some convoluted idea she gets in her head that she is not the submissive I need her to be. I’m sick of the bullshit, and this time I want what is mine.

And Sam is mine.

Wrapping my arm around her waist, I pull her body tight against mine and slant my head, slamming my mouth to hers as she gasps in shock. My hand grabs her blonde ponytail, holding her in place. Her tight muscles relax when my tongue rolls over hers as I set out to rediscover the beauty that is Samantha Richards. Her taste is intoxicating, and I find myself wanting to consume her, to lose myself inside of this gorgeous woman whose mind continues to deny the connection between us. In this moment, I want to show her everything I am, everything I can do to her, every possible way I can make her feel. I know I’m losing control, but with Sam, I don’t care.

I press my hips into her, pressing my hard as steel cock against the softness of her stomach. I feel her arms move between us, and I expect her to push me away, but she fists my shirt and pulls me closer, thrusting her hips into me in silent invitation.

She may not be able to admit the words, but she can show me with her body, with her actions—she can no longer deny the spark between us.

I pull my head back slightly, raking my teeth against her bottom lip. I scan her face, looking for any remaining uncertainty. If she said no it would hurt like hell, but I’d let her go. Again. But all I can see are swollen, pink lips and half-cast eyes full of want, and I know in that moment that I have my Sammy back. Even if it’s just for a few moments, a few hours, or maybe the night…if that is all I get with her, then I’ll take it willingly.

If this is the only chance I get with her, I’m going to make it count. I’m going to draw it out and make it last until neither one of us can move; until neither of us can breathe.

“You were saying?” I ask, raising an eyebrow.
