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.*
“Girl’s night with Mac?” Nathan asks around a mouthful of his sandwich.
“Yep. Usually she’s at Daniel’s place or they’re at ours. We haven’t had a girls night in a long time.”
“Are handsome gay men with a love of rom coms and chocolate allowed at girls nights?”
“Maybe, depends what the handsome gay man is willing to bring to the table,” I say with a cheeky grin.
“Normally it would be two out of the three important c’s, cronuts and chardonnay, but lucky for you, it promises to be a very lucky night for me. I have a date with a six foot tall, hard as rock body, Puerto Rican man who has expressed an interest in all things Nate. So it looks like I might get a C of my own tonight.”
I clap my hands in glee like a barking seal at Sea World. “Nate, that’s great. That’s definitely a better offer than drinking with me while I gossip with my bestie.”
Nate is a man whore who seeks out fellow man whores. We bonded instantly over a love of hair and cronuts. Cronuts are the genius combination of a donut and a croissant filled with vanilla cream. Seriously, he introduced me to the glorious pastry and my ass has been cursing him ever since. Of course Nate says my ass has never looked so good, so I keep him around as my personal ass motivation coach. Every girl needs one of those.
“Yes well one can only live in hope that the promise of him is just as good as the reality. You’d know all about that, wouldn’t you?”
True Bliss by BJ Harvey was a beautiful addition to the Bliss Series. A woman trying to find her prince, and a man trying to find his princess. Kate and Zander were characters that I fell in love with in Temporary Bliss, and I’m so glad they got their own Happily Ever After.
“I want true, total body mind and soul, bliss.”
Now that her best friend has found her other half, Kate is desperate to find that kind of love. She wants the kind of love that you read about in romance novels, or the heart pounding love that you see in those sappy romantic movies. Kate implements the “three date rule.” No sex until after the third date. How does one stay true to this rule when there are incredibly good looking men like Zander hanging around. She has also gone as far as signing up for internet dating, which is something she would totally not do, but she is sick of this feeling, this feeling that she will never find her Prince Charming.
Who could forget Zander? If you read the first book, Temporary Bliss, you know him as the über sexy stripper and one of Mac’s friend’s with benefits. If you fell in love with him before, you will absolutely adore him in True Bliss. We learn so much more about him, and the way he is with his sisters, put a huge smile on my face and warmth in my heart. We dive inside his head and experience his struggles and his growing love for a certain “firebird.” Will that one night he walked away from Kate be his biggest regret? The more he sees her, the more he wants her and the harder it is to be a gentlemen around her.
True Bliss was a funny, sexy, and just an all around great love story that everyone can enjoy. There was just enough spice, there was just enough romance. Nothing was overdone and the characters were delightful. And to those “Superman” fans, don’t you worry there is plenty more Mac and Daniel to go around in True Bliss. At the end of the book we get to be a part of something special with these two and it was beautiful to read.
