Genres: Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
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...
*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don't forget the batteries.*
“I want true, total body mind and soul, bliss.”
Kate is a bit of a dreamer. She’s a good girl just looking for her Prince Charming, but all she’s had are Mr. Wrongs. After her best friend found her happy ending, she is even more determined to put herself out there, even trying internet dating. All the while having a certain 6’2’’ gorgeous, charismatic someone on her mind.
Dammit. Why did Zander have to be such a gentleman? For one night, he had the chance to just be a normal guy and think with his dick. Why couldn’t he have just taken me up on my offer and given me one night of mind-blowing, life-changing sex? It would have been amazing…the way he moves his body, the way he carries himself…god, just the way he looks at you. It all screams he’s a guy who knows what he’s doing between the sheets. He didn’t want me to regret him in the morning, but one look at that man, and that is a whole world of regret worth having.
If you have read Temporary Bliss then how could you forget Zander? The hot, sexy, spontaneous stripper who was one of Mac’s friends with benefits… Well there is a lot more to Zander than meets the eye. He’s finishing up his training to become a police officer and just wants a nice girl he can bring home to mom and his three younger sisters. When Mac starts playing matchmaker and pushes these two into a unique living arrangement, Kate and Zander have to get over their past run-in and face their building attraction.
This situation makes for some massive amounts of sexual tension. This book is a much longer, slower build than Mac and Daniel’s romance in Temporary Bliss. But I loved every second of the torturous wait. Never fear, there are some steamy scenes along the way to hold you over. BJ definitely can get creative with her sex scenes and this one surely didn’t disappoint there, not one bit!
I really love the relationship that Kate and Zander end up building. These are two awesome characters that I have become so attached to and I love that they are both such healthy people. As much as I love me some broken characters, it’s refreshing not to have some dark, tortured past looming over the relationship. They are pretty upfront and honest (with one exception that causes a minor bump for them) with each other and my god can Zander bring the swoon! I love that man!
“Beautiful is not enough of a word to describe you. You’re electric, you’re alive and vibrant, and when you look up at me like that, you make me feel invincible. I’ve been staring at you all night, wondering how on earth I got so lucky to have met you, to spend time with you, to get to know you.”
Along the way we get a good amount of Mac and Daniel time too. Their scenes always made me smile. There are even two amazing bonus scenes at the end of the book that are solely Mac and Daniel. They are perfection! ♥
True Bliss is an amazing follow up to Temporary Bliss. It was fun, sexy, and romantic, with just enough angst. Couple that with the fantastic characters BJ has brought to life and it made for a near perfect read. I absolutely loved it!

Letting out a huge sigh, I realize that I’m spending another night sitting at home by myself at…yep 10 p.m., and drowning my sorrows about the sorry state of my love life. Granted, Roger was just my first online date, but if he’s anything to go by, I should be running for the hills. Or the nearest convent. If I wasn’t so determined to give it a real shot, I’d be closing up shop now, resigning myself to a single life with lots of cats, and being aunty to Mac and Daniel’s kids.
But that’s definitely not what I want, and I’m determined, so I grab the laptop off the coffee table in front of me and boot it up, bringing up the Chicago Singles website and logging in. I see a reminder that my date with Roger has come and gone. How insightful, little website. Can you also tell when the date is full of shit and boring as hell because that could have saved me a hell of a lot of effort!
I check to see whether Boring Roger has rated our date yet, and almost spit out my mouthful of wine when I see he rated it four out of five hearts. What the fuck! He must be more deluded that I thought. That date was a dull as dishwater. The only thing exciting about it was my brief encounter with Zander across the bar. And as embarrassing as that was, he still managed to get a way hotter response from my body than Roger could ever achieve.
