True Bliss by BJ Harvey: Review and Giveaway!

Title: TRUE BLISS (Bliss # 2)

Author: BJ Harvey

Published: November 25th

Organized by: The Book Avenue

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...

Clare's Review:
I loved True Bliss!! It was sweet and funny (real funny, not cheesy funny just for the sake of being funny), and hot. I love the friendships and dialogue (at times it reminded me of The Book Whoreders morning snapchats and group messaging), and I LOVE getting to stay in touch with Mac and Daniel. And you know, it's refreshing, because it's nice to see characters that aren't totally fucked up by a damaging past (not that I don't love those books too). Kate and Zander are just normal people with good childhoods lookin for love. And then trying to keep it! They still mess things up and miscommunicate and have to work at it. Just like normal people. Ummm....Zander is also super hot and he and Kate will steam up the screen of your Kindle somethin fierce! I was in a perpetual state of turned-on-edness.
Oh!!! And get ready for THE FUNNIEST BABY DELIVERING SCENE YOU'VE EVER READ. If you've ever actually read a funny one, that is. Doesn't matter. It was about the best scene I've ever read anyway. I. Died. Laughing. Died.
If I HAD to choose...I think I liked Temporary Bliss a little better, but that's only personal preference because I love Mac so very very much and I identified with her a smidge more. But that's not to say that Kate isn't wonderful and completely fun to get to know! Definitely read this book!! 4.5 stars!!


Realizing that the day is getting away from me, I gather my laundry for the week and head around the block to Suds R Us, my local laundromat. Once I have the washing machine on, I sit back in the plastic chairs lining the wall and pull out my phone. Time for my weekly phone call to Mom and the girls.

It rings twice before my sister Danika picks up. “City morgue. You kill ‘em, we chill ‘em.”

She never fails to amaze me. “Danika, that is terrible!” I say, still chuckling to myself.

“Zan! Tell me you’re coming home soon.”

“I wish I was, squirt. I’m too busy with work and the academy. Who would’ve thought you have to study to become a cop?”

“Well duh! Of course you do. How else will you know how to get fat and eat donuts all day?”

“Oh is that what I’ll be doing all day? Well shit, I’m glad you told me now,” I reply sarcastically.
