Pure Bliss by Sophie Oak
Sting factor (kink): 5 out of 5
When I first read Sophie Oaks first book about Bliss, Colorado, I felt like I had discovered a diamond in the rough. A hot read and good book, it needed some polishing.
With the last few books, and particularly Pure Bliss, the diamond now sparkles with a breathtaking shine. This book was hot, funny, suspenseful, and a pure joy from front to finish. Parts had me laughing out loud, although there are some darker elements here.
Hope has lived in Bliss for some time now, but only the Sheriff knows about her past, and not even he knows all of it. And her attraction to James Glen is no secret to anyone in town.
For his part, James thinks Hope may be his true love, but he hasn’t been able to approach her because his ranch has been in trouble. With a new partnership helping the ranch, and Logan, Hope’s friend, leaving her in his care, now may the time for him to approach her. But there’s a catch-his brother is back in town and he also wants Hope. Noah, who shared growing up with James was not really of his blood, but was raised like his little brother. When he left, he left the town and James in a lot of trouble. All for a woman who wasn’t worth his time.
Can these three people with guilt lying on their shoulders find happiness in a cobbled together family? Well, that’s what Bliss is about-family. The author explores the relationships people develop both with other individuals and with the town as a whole. And how people can let go of their troubled pasts to relish a new, and brighter future.
