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.

Shay

I never believed in the whole one true love philosophy. To be honest, it sounded like a stinking pile of crap that some feminist created to explain every woman’s obsession with being in love.

Thinking back on it, it blindsided me. I was an easygoing, freethinking bachelor with no commitment, and no worries. Just fast cars, faster women, and a rather healthy income that seemed well above the pay grade for the work Brax and I did.

So color me stupid that I would be the one left speechless the day I met Brenna Bertorelli, the one woman who didn’t want anything to do with me. The same woman who would capture my heart and make me truly believe in the notion of soul mates.

Brenna was that for me.

Shay McCarron – 25 years old. Estranged from parents and twin sister. Works for South Security with his best friend and Army buddy Brax James. Loves his Black GTO, the fast life and fast women.
Brenna Bertorelli – 22 years old. Just returned to Atlanta after four years away at college. Hates her family legacy and the ‘princess’ title that seems to follow her around. Has two older, protective older brothers and has been forced to live with her parents for the foreseeable future.
Brax James – 26 years old, Shay’s best friend and partner. Works for South Security. Victor Bertorelli is his boss.
Victor Bertorelli – Shay and Brax’s boss and Brenna’s father.

Here is the excerpt, ladies!

Shay
After waiting ten minutes in Victor’s kitchen, and another ten minutes in my car as it rumbled loudly in the driveway, the princess is finally seated in the black leather bucket seat beside me, arms crossed and looking none too happy about her predicament.
“You going to sit there and pout like a spoiled brat not getting her own way, or you actually going to talk to me?” I look over at the raven haired woman in my passenger seat who still has my groin tight and my breath lost.
She looks my way and scowls. “I don’t even know your name! And anyway, why would I want to talk to one of my father’s underlings who probably doesn’t know his head from his ass? Hell, even your hot ass muscle car is probably paid for with dirty fucking money.” She smirks, and I see it—that spark. The fire that I saw burning in her eyes this morning when we met.
I stop at an intersection and wait for the traffic lights to change. “Seems there are a few things we need to clear up, cupcake. My name is Shay, and this hot ass muscle car is mine and mine alone. No dirty fucking money involved. And I can assure you right now, I definitely know my head from my ass. You know what else?” I lean in towards her ear. “I also know where your ass and head are, and right now one is stuck so far up the other, it’s a wonder you don’t need breath mints.”

True Bliss Banner

Hello, ladies!

It has now become my turn on the blog tour for this really amazing book.

Enjoy!

True Bliss full jacket

Release Date:

25th November

Organised by The Book Avenue

Blurb:

She watched her best friend find her superhero.

Now she wants her turn.

Despite a run of bad dates with Mr. Wrong, Mr. Boring, Mr. Bad Breath, Mr. Grabby Hands, and even Mr. Say I Love You After One Date To Get Into Your Pants, Kate McGuinness is more determined than ever to find the one.

Having tried everything else, she turns to the internet in a last ditch attempt to find her elusive prince.

But Kate doesn’t want an everyday, run of the mill love.

She wants the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset. The once in a lifetime kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about, and lovers dream about.

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart? 

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?

She just needs to open her eyes to see it… 

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don’t forget the batteries.*

My Review

ARC received by the author in exchange for an honest review

After just having read a rather dark romance, I wanted something lighter to read. I am happy to say that “True Bliss” was exactly what I needed. This is the second book in the Bliss Series with interconnected characters but can be read as a standalone novel. I would not recommend it, though, as I think you will miss out on too much if you do not read them in order.

Meet Kate: she is longing to find her Prince Charming. It has been drilled into her from when she was a child that she would meet her perfect man one day, but she is getting rather impatient waiting for him to show up even though she is only 24 years old.

“I don’t just want a good love, one of those everyday loves that you hear about. I want the kind of crazy love we’ve been warned about. The kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you want to dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset while screaming at the top of your lungs. The kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about and lover’s dream about.” (Kate)

This is hardly an unreasonable request, which is why Kate decides to use an online dating service even though her friend, Mac, and her Superman (*wink*) Daniel does not approve. I like the fact that Kate is being smart about this venture: she does not simply meet the men as soon as they contact her; she tries to get to know them a bit better before jumping into a blind date. She has also come up with her “Three Dates Rule”, meaning no sex allowed until after the third date – very wise!

We get to experience a few of Kate’s “Disaster Dates”, as I like to call them, and they made me feel bad for her. You would think that in a city as big as Chicago, it should not be a problem finding your perfect match. Wrong! It takes a lot of hard work finding your Prince Charming.

Kate is a great character: she is feisty, charming and sweet. I really connected with her – maybe because of the online dating – and I loved getting to know her better. She has been burnt in the past but those experiences have not made her bitter, and I liked that she looks toward the future with an open mind.

Now, even though Kate is trying her luck with online dating, it is not as if she has not already met a guy who sets her body on fire: Zander, one of Mac’s former friends-with-benefits, has made her heart thump wildly once or twice. Sadly, though, he rejected her a few months before – and I would be just as mortified as Kate, mind you – when he had taken her home after she was almost molested by another guy. They shared a very passionate kiss and even though she desperately wanted him to sleep with her, he turned her down. Needless to say, she has avoided him ever since. But the fact that he turned her down is not her only reason for this: she has a really tough time considering him to be more than an acquaintance because of his history with Mac. There is, naturally, also his line of work to consider: he is a male stripper.

I was rather surprised by Zander, actually. Getting inside his head was a true pleasure for me: never had I expected him to be so caring and considerate. He is sexy, passionate and – yes – sweet. He has grown up being the man of the house since his father died and is thus very mature despite the fact that he is only 23 years old. He is a protector by heart which is why he wants to become a cop. The stripping is getting to him and he is actually rather tired of doing it.

“Let me tell you, you may think guys can be crude and vulgar, but holy heck, some of the things I’ve had yelled at me in the middle of a routine would make Hugh Hefner blush.” (Zander)

This is so hilarious! And so true – in my opinion, women can be just as bad as men and I love how Miss Harvey seems to think the same. But back to Zander:

Like Kate, he cannot stop thinking about the night he refused her, but I completely understand why he did it: he did not want a quick lay with Kate, because he thinks she is worth so much more.

“Kate. My fantasy girl personified. From her fiery red hair to her five foot nothing body with curves for miles. She’s a good girl; a take hime to mom kind of girl. Definetely not a one night stand type of girl who you’d subject to the walk of shame the next morning.” (Zander)

After having seen Kate on a date with a much older guy one evening, he drills Mac for details and finds out about the online dating. Zander then concocts a plan – and I was thinking “Oh no” at this part of the story – to get to know Kate better without her knowledge. He knows that Kate may have an issue with him being a part of Mac’s past which is one of the reasons why he will not show his true identity before she knows him better.

That is all you are getting from me about what happens in the book. As with the previous installment in this series, I absolutely LOVED “True Bliss”. It has everything I look for in a romance: drama, funny moments, passionate scenes, and the h/H that are wonderful to get to know. I was riveted to the pages and did not want the book to end! Miss Harvey’s writing style is so engaging, fun, and believable, which is very important to me in a romance. I really like that Mac and Daniel – the characters from the first book, “Temporary Bliss” – are a vital part in this second book, but they do not overshadow Kate and Zander’s love story. Mac is her usual crazy self again, making me laugh out loud, and Daniel is still the swoony Superman, making me sigh happily.

I honestly believe that you will fall in love with Kate and Zander – a.k.a. the God Of Gorgeousness as Kate calls him. And with lines like these, you will not be able to resist this new book boyfriend:

“I love you enough to fight for you until you tell me there is no hope, then I’ll fight harder. You are the only woman I want to be with, to laugh with, to live with, to make love to.” (Zander)

I really cannot wait to see what the author has in store for us in the next book in the series!

Enjoy!

Nightdancer23: Is it wrong that I’m thinking that you, going to sleep in a cold bed, is a crime?

Fireinthesky24: Not wrong. A bit forward maybe, but I can deal with forward from a distance.

Nightdancer23: Good to hear, Firebird. Till next time *wink*

Fireinthesky24: Firebird?

Nightdancer23: Sorry, it’s just a name that came to me when I saw your photo.

Fireinthesky24: I like it 🙂

Well, color me pink and call me candy floss. Forward and flirty. Dammit, why isn’t Mac here to help me decipher this? She’s the queen of reading into things.

Time for bed and a romance novel to drown my sorrows in. I shuffle into my bedroom, snuggling deep under the covers with my kindle, waiting for sleep to come. Ten pages—and one sex scene later–my kindle hits me in the face as I fall asleep holding it.

Kate the dork for the win!

*Disclaimer – There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn’t).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three ‘friends with benefits’.

They know the score, they know they’re not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys. 

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.  

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you’re Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart? 

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?

She just needs to open her eyes to see it… 

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don’t forget the batteries.*

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Bj Harvey Picture

I’m 31 years old and live in New Zealand, the most beautiful country in the world.

I love reading, and started writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. Before that I’d written business and website articles professionally but never fiction. I love the indie community, authors, bloggers and readers alike and have met so many awesome people that I now call dear friends.

I’m a huge music lover as well. I REALLY love music. If there isn’t music playing, something is wrong. And it’s a wide range of music too, I might surprise you with my eclectic tastes.

I’m also a wife, mother of two gorgeous girls and currently working for myself as well as studying full time to become an accountant of all things. I also have a Bachelor of Communications.

My author inspirations are: Michelle Leighton, Barbara Elsborg and Kristen Ashley.

Want an excerpt of “True Bliss” ? 😉 Silly question, right?

Enjoy!

Having eaten our way through garlic bread, lasagna and a delicious baked cheesecake for dessert, both Mac and I are laid up in the living room. We’re recovering from our food comas, watching some crazy game show on television where people are training to become ninjas.

“I could never be a ninja. My big belly would get in the way,” Mac muses.

“I don’t want to be a ninja, although I’d be willing to date a ninja. Can you imagine the positions that he could get into? Oh my god! I just thought of one! The reverse saddle ninja.”

Mac sits up excitedly and faces me, bending one leg under the other. “No, wait. What about a ninja doing downward facing doggie style? They could probably hang upside down from the roof while fucking you. That would be awesome,” she says with a laugh.

“I know! Instead of the vibrating V, it would be the ninja nooner or the ninja nookie!” I say, struggling to talk though my laughter.

Mac looks at her phone briefly before putting it down and looking at me.

“Everything okay?” I ask, looking at her phone.

“Oh… yeah, great. Just checking the time. But right now, we need to talk about you.” Mac sits up and rests her hands on her stomach. I’m kind of envious of her right now, but I won’t admit that to her.

“Why’s that?” I say, intrigued. Definitely didn’t see the conversation shifting from ninja sex to me. Although, if I were honest, if I had ninja sex, I’d be a happy camper. Actually, sex of any kind would be acceptable right now. Anything other than the one handed dialing of the ol’ pink telephone. I should be buying my batteries in bulk with the frequent use my purple pearl vibrator has been getting this year.

Oh, and there is more! The first book in the series, “Temporary Bliss” is ON SALE! Yup, it’s true! For a limited time, you can get it for only $0.99 – that’s a real bargain, ladies.

And if you’re unsure about buying it, perhaps my 5 stars review will help – here’s my review.

Blurb:

*Disclaimer – There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn’t).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three ‘friends with benefits’.

They know the score, they know they’re not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys. 

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.  

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you’re Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?
