Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.
Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick’s ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.
When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

You know when an author writes a warning at the beginning of a book that you are in for one heck of a ride. Let me tell you, she wasn’t kidding when she said that Blyss: The Blyss Trilogy – book 1 was going to push some reader’s limits for dark and mind-messing!! Wow! BLYSS takes you on a journey of suspense, lies, and intrigue.
Julianna has gone home for the summer to stay with her father before starting her senior year of college. What should be a just a normal summer at home quickly goes from normal to SAY WHAT in just a few pages. Julianna’s world is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by a man who has stalked her for years. Throw into the mix that he wants her “trained” for his pleasure and the mystery of who, what and why all of this is even happening, and you have one HECKUVA book.
There are so many layers to this story. There is whole captive/captor attraction where the captor just happens to be HOT. Then, there is the obsessive, somewhat sinister, bad guy who wants what he wants, and will have it at any cost. THEN, there is the whole Bylss aspect. I can’t tell you what that is as it would spoil A LOT for you, but suffice it to say it’s wrong, it’s whacked and oh so very naughty.
Truthfully, Blyss is the kind of book that tests your boundaries of right and wrong. You may find yourself thinking how something so wrong could be so right, or why aren’t you horrified or disgusted by what’s going on. Regardless, this is a great book. The storyline is fresh and unexpected, and the characters are so much more than they seem. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, Blyssful Lies. I have no idea what to expect, but I bet it will be amazing!

BEWARE OF Blyss!!! This book may cause you hot flashes!! You will also experience a bundle of mixed and contradictory emotions. It’s so wrong but so right!! It had me hooked from the beginning. The subject matter is dark but the book is not. It reads like a romantic suspense thriller with erotica thrown in!
Poor Julianne has been stalked and taken away from everyone she loves. She’s been taken, held captive and drugged up on the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug called Blyss. It turns women into the perfect companion and submissive. She is being trained for the leader in this business, Nick. He’s been obsessed with her for years. Nick comes off as an evil, egotistical, selfish bastard. Thinking Julianna is his. He may think he knows everything about her but he did not realize how resilient she is. She will not go down without a fight. She has a lot of self preservation and will. But how long can she hold onto herself and sanity???
Julianna’s only hope seems to be Nick’s partner Travis. He shows Julianna comfort and kindness. The minute you are introduced to Travis, you are drawn to him. He’s not only classy and charming but gorgeous. He knows how to handle the ladies. His connection with Julianne is so evident. Sparks fly and passion ignites. Holy hotness!!! But are their feelings real?? Feelings or not, Travis knows she isn’t his to take. You know you should hate him and all that he stands for… but you can’t, it’s like you are drugged up and helpless also. Falling in love with a criminal. Like I said, so wrong but so right!!! Is Travis showing his true colors or just what he wants Julianna to see???
Julianna finds herself is a precarious situation with no way out! Trapped, alone and scared. Should she just give in or fight for her freedom???
I was engrossed in this book. It was hard to put down. It will leave you wanting more and dying to know the out come. It’s has a great flow with not one dull moment. It’s hard to believe it is a debut book because it is written so well with such an ease…… I can not wait to get my hands on book 2!!
Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it’s Nick’s game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it’s a losing game.
Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it’s far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands…
As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life. It’s opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills.
While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul.
It’s every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.
Nicole’s 4 star Review
Ok…so when I finished the first book in the Blyss Trilogy, I said I had no idea what to expect in the second book, and boy was I right!! Blyssful Lies is FULL of never-saw-that-comings, oh-no-he-didn’ts and get-outs. Picking up where Blyss left off, the head-spinning triangle of sex, deceit and manipulation continues with Julianna in a battle of wills with the obsessive and barely controlled Nick, and trying to deny the attraction she feels towards Travis. Julianna’s and Nick’s constant back and forth reminded me of a passionate tango that was at once graceful and intense. It was sexy and disturbing with Julianna being betrayed by her own body when Nick’s tenuous control pushes her to her limits. Her interactions with Travis were so totally different from Nick’s, yet they were just as full of heat and power. In a series of wild events, she comes to rely on Travis in ways neither expected. This love/hate triangle is one of the most intense I’ve read with its plot twists and constant action.
Again, I can’t say much more than this because the risk of spoilers is too much. I will tell you that Blyssful Lies is one hell of a ride. I didn’t always know who was coming or going, but I knew that I didn’t want it to stop. And the ending!! Holy Batman! I have NO clue what will happen in book 3, but it promises to deliver more of the holy cows and no ways that the first two books gave us!
Dawn’s 4.5 Star Review
This is Julianna’s story. She lived a normal life until she was about to turn twenty-one, and then all hell broke loose. Years of diabolical scheming unraveling at the seams, unleashing torrents of lies and deceit. The whirlwind of chaos and heartbreak will forever change the game.
Her chosen fate is one of stellar proportions, and she struggles to keep sane, trying to hold it together every step of the way. As the matrix of her concealed past unfolds to deliver the final blow, rationality and sanity begin to take on a definition and meaning of its own.
Nick thinks he’s the night in shining armor while Travis believes he will be enough to save her from herself, but does she even want to be saved?
Both men want her. Both men love her, and both men want to claim her, keeping her for themselves. But, as usual, Julianna has other plans.
