Book & Author Details:
Chasing Bliss by Lexi Blake (writing as Sophie Oak)
Publication date: April 23rd 2019
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Gemma Wells came to Bliss, Colorado, after a scandal cost her everything. Utterly lost, the disgraced attorney built walls so high that she thinks no one can get through them. She’s given up on love, friendship, and all matters of the heart.
Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair have floated through life, enjoying the world around them, but never allowing themselves to become a part of it. One look at the pretty attorney and Jesse realizes he’s finally found a reason to stay put. Cade isn’t so sure. He’s crazy about her, but he also knows he doesn’t deserve her.
As they begin to find their way together, a dark secret from Gemma’s past threatens to wreck their futures. Her ex-fiancé is back, bringing danger with him, and their time is running out. Jesse and Cade have to melt this Ice Queen’s heart, or she might not leave Bliss alive.
Of all the female characters that I have encountered from Ms Blake, I can safely say that Gemma is the one who I can identify with the most. Not all of her – just elements of her character that resonate with me, and which anchored me more firmly within the story.
And what a story! I think that these books just get better. And, a lot of that is the increasing cast of supporting characters, whose stories I have already read, whose HEA I have already invested in, so seeing them pop up again just adds an extra dimension to the story for me.
It’s no secret that I am a fan of Ms Blake’s work. How can I not be when I get to read stories like this – all about family – whatever that family looks like.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
