TEMPORARY BLISS by BJ Harvey was a really random click for me, but my randomness has finally paid off.
I really really enjoyed this book!
I immediately fell in love with this story. This story was a light easy read but really ticked all the boxes for me. Some of my favourite reads are epic, some I love because they just made me smile, but this one, just stood out a little more than a typical ‘great read’. BJ Harvey adds humour to the mix and it works perfectly, keeping the tone of the book light and very addictive.
This story follows the life of Makenna ‘Mac’ Lewis, who was stuck in an awful relationship with her high school boyfriend, Beau. After 6 months of feeling like she couldn’t get out, and being emotionally and physically abused by Beau, a tragic incident leaves her feeling alone and desperate to be back home with her parents and best friend Kate.
4 years later, Mac has herself 3 hot males who agree to the ‘no strings attached’/ ‘friends with benefits’ relationship that she needs to get herself back on her feet after finally escaping her past. She vows to never let a man control her and she puts up a shield to protect her heart from ever breaking again.
Walking away from this life, I make a vow to myself; never again will my life be dictated by a man, and never again will I let love lead me astray
Enter Daniel Winters.
Holy Crap this man is totally swoon-worthy. He is sexy in every single possible way and he is instantly attracted to Mac, and vise versa.
All of Daniel’s physical attributes are already measuring mighty high on the Makenna scale of hotness, but that laugh…the low baritone timbre that can stop wars, solves world hunger, and cure women of their need for underwear all at the same time…it is the work of the devil. I swear to God, all he’d have to do is lie there and laugh all day, and I swear I could sit on his chest and get off
So many laugh out loud moments!
Daniel and Mac’s chemistry is instant, the banter is hot, their dates had me running to BJ and telling her how freaking amazing she is at writing a scene as simple as eating dessert and have me panting and wishing it was me sitting at the table with him.
I cannot tell you how madly in love with Daniel I am. He is seriously the perfect man. BJ has nailed it. He is the perfect mix of sex, swoon and sweet. The complete trifecta in my eyes!
Mac begins to fall for him, but in the process, is trying to protect her heart. This results in her pushing him away. It gutted me at times, know why Mac was doing what she was doing, but at the same time wanting to bitch slap her in the face and tell her to wake the f**k up! Daniel is freaking perfect!
You’re meant to be mine
Every single character in this book has their own unique story, and I cannot wait to get to know them all better in the rest of the series.
I rate this book 4.5 stars.
Daniel and Mac had my heart from the beginning and I just wanted to know how their story ended, ASAP!
Read this book. You wont regret it.
