Dawn C’s Review 5 stars
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 erotic 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 in 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!!
Kristine’s Review: 5 stars
Please kidnap me and stick me with some Blyss, Travis! Yeah, that’s what I was thinking while reading this book! I know feeling like this is twisted, but this all comes from J.C Cliff’s brilliant mind and I love her so much for it! I literally devoured this book in one day! I started and was enchanted all the way through. Dirty looks and huffs and puffs when I was disrupted!
Waking up one morning and living the good life, feeling protected by your surroundings and daddy’s body guard, what do you have to fear? Well in Julianna’s case she should have everything to fear! This books starts off with knock your socks off, suspense.
“Taking Julianna…..say what? Taking me?! Holy sh**!” ~Julianna
Yeah I would be running my butt out of there too! My question is what the hell is going on and why are they taking her? ohhh this is just the beginning. You have no idea of all the experiences with overloads of…shut the front door, wtfs and omg….how is this book turning me on, that I went through. I was not only rocked off my rocker but wishing to my fairy god mother to magically transport this heavenly, hard core tuff man named Travis, to me!!
Well I fell in love with Travis…..My whole attraction to bad boys came in full effect here. He is rough and tough on the outside and milky and sweet on the inside. He’s had to be hard and let no true emotion show how he feels. With a strong face you never know what his thinking process is. When Julianna is brought to him, we see something that hasn’t been seen, maybe a glimpse of who he truly is.
Now there is Nick, the leader of this whole world that surrounds this story. Not my favorite guy…kinda wanna kick him in the nuts a few times….but maybe that’s just me.
And the one in the middle of this is Julianna. What would I do if I was Julianna…I have no friggin idea, maybe crawl under a bed and never come out! This girl is stalwart, determined, smart, an extreme fighter and a super women to withstand what she has too. She has this power that has both these totally different men crazy for her. One wants somewhat the best for her while the other wants to control her whole being.
This story is a mixture of mystery, suspense, and thrill topped with a sprinkle of darkness. Sounds like my kind of book sundae! I just have to say this is one different story, if the synopsis alone doesn’t transfix you to read this…… well that is just crazy talk cause it will. You will love every second of this and be wishing you had the second one book. Which I will gloat that I already read it and this series just gets better and better! I’m so happy to have read this and encountered what Blyss truly is!
