Title: TEMPORARY BLISS (Bliss # 1, New Erotic Romance Series)
Author: BJ Harvey
Published: August 29th
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?

Temporary Bliss by BJ Harvey was an incredibly sexy, hilarious, emotional read. The characters were amazing. I mean every single ridiculously funny character! Mac is a chick that I definitely want to party with. Especially if she can introduce me to her three hot “friends,” Noah, Sean, and Zander.
“Everything he gave me was everything I never knew I wanted.”
Makenna Lewis is a character that I could relate too on every level, commitment phobia included! God, what I would give to have a set-up like she did in the beginning. You have Noah, a doctor that she works with. Hello! Easy access “on-call room STAT!” Next is Sean, or Mr. Dom, dark and commanding, he could tie me up anytime, that’s for sure! Last, but certainly not least, we have Zander, stripper extraordinaire. I’m sorry, I think that’s all I have to say is he’s a freakin’ stripper! How fucking lucky can one girl get?!
Even though Makenna has her hands full with these men, nothing can compare to her Superman, her Delicious Daniel. Daniel is intense, and I love that in a male character. He is exactly what Makenna needs. He is the only one that can tame her, break down her walls, and help her move on from her horrible past. They are the perfect combination. This book sucked me in and kept me captivated from the first chapter. The beginning was difficult and emotional for me, I mean the shit that Makenna went through with her high school sweetheart, just broke my heart. No one deserves that. After reading the beginning you can definitely see why Mac is the way she is. She hides behind her humor, she is protecting her heart by staying away from commitments, and I don’t blame her. Her heart hides behind a brick wall, until her Superman can break through and heal it.
“You’re my forever girl. My Lois Lane. You always have been, and if I have my way, you always will be.”
This is my first read from BJ Harvey, and I am completely impressed. I can’t wait to read more by this very talented author!

“Which boy of the week was that?” Kate asks with a smirk.
“Sean. I felt a little crazy last night so needed a spanking.”
I laugh as Kate spits her coffee out and starts choking.
“God dammit Mac, you’re so easy.”
“I’m not easy, I’m free spirited.”
“Free spirited with your body.”
“Hey now, no need to get jealous. It’s like having one boyfriend with four different talents. They’re all great at what they do, but there are particular things they excel at,” I say with a wink.
Kate giggles at that. I know she means well but I still feel the need to explain myself.
“Look, it’s what I like and it’s what I need right now. After Beau, I don’t want anything other than sex. They know the score and they’re fine with it.”
I don’t really feel the conviction in my last comment though. They’re supposed to know the score and be fine with it. But Daniel, I’m not so sure about anymore.
He seems too keen to see me, too disappointed when it’s time to leave, and has even broached the subject of catching a movie sometime. I’ve brushed it off but it is getting to the stage where I might have to break off our arrangement. It’s the last thing I want to do because he is just what I like to come home to after a long twelve hour shift. He’s the affectionate one. He’s always kissing me, nuzzling my neck, and God, the massages he gives me are to die for. Our lovemaking is soft and sensual, it’s lazy and hedonistic, it’s like a warm apple pie on a cold winter’s night. He’s my comfort sex. But get him fired up, and holy cow batman, that man can set me on fire.
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.
