Release blitz, giveaway & 5* review - Finding Bliss by BJ Harvey

Title: Finding Bliss
Series: Bliss #4
Author: BJ Harvey
Release Date: June 16, 2015


The End of an Era
They call me the walking dildo.
Gratifying? Yes. 
Something my mother would be proud of? Hell no!
Watching my best friend and my old friend-with-benefits blissfully walk down the aisle has just reiterated the fact that I’m thirty and perpetually single. 
I thought I’d found the woman I wanted to spend my life with, you have to open your eyes to realize that it’s never gonnahappen.
Funny how meeting the right person can finally make you see sense.
My name is Noah Taylor: kickass trauma surgeon, closet idealist, wishful thinker, and all round cocky asshole, and this is the year my life will change for the better. 
*Disclaimer: This book features hot sex, filthy language, misuse of on-call rooms and the overdue redemption of the fake orgasm*


“I got a text from Dan warning me that you might be a little drunk.”
“I’m a lot drunk, but that’s not the point. I’m not sure I can be with you anymore.”
He freezes mid step, and turns to face me at the same time as swinging my body around to meet his, chest to chest. “Say that again. I think you lost me.”
Because I’m drunk and although— in my mind — I’m telling myself that I deserve a lifetime of orgasms and I need to break up with him, I wind my arms around his neck and pull myself hard against him. His hands drop to my hips and hold me hostage as his eyes bore down into mine, obviously waiting for me to explain. “See, we got talking and Mac said she had to fake an orgasm with you, and I can’t live without orgasms. I like having orgasms. They’re fun and good for me, and they make me a very happy girl, so I need to have orgasms and if you’re just giving me your A game to lure me in and then you’re going to switch to your C or D game soon, which would suck—although Kate said the C game can be fun if you do it right . . . anyway, I need you to promise me a life full of lots and lots of orgasms or else I can’t go out with you anymore.”
Then I’m stopped by his lips hitting mine, his tongue delving into my mouth when it opens on a gasp of shock. He takes his time, he does the job right, and when he pulls back and nuzzles my neck, I’ve sagged against him and my hands are gripping into the back of his head as if my whole life depends on it. 
“Are you going to start back up again, or do I need to put something in your mouth to stop you from spouting this shit?”
“It’s not shit. I need org—” He cups my jaw and kisses me long and deep, and with lots of effort on his part, and mine once I get past the shock of him shutting me up with his mouth for the second time in as many minutes. 
“Now that we’ve established that you’re not breaking up with me, or going anywhere else other than my bed right now, can I take you inside so I can show you every trick I have in the book? And I’m gonna keep going until you get it through that drunken head of yours that you’re never going to have to fake an orgasm with me, now or ever.”

Book review 

I've been waiting for this book for a while now and I had high expectations - and Ms Harvey didn't let me down.  Finding Bliss has a perfect balance of emotion, humour and heat that all combine to make this a must read. Finding Bliss could probably be read as a standalone, but I'd recommend reading the other books in the series first as a lot of the characters from previous books appear in this one - plus they are all great books that are a pleasure to read.  I have really enjoyed all of the books in the Bliss series, so I'm sad that this is the last Bliss book - although I'm really hoping the author might change her mind and write a story for Noah's brother.

Dr Noah Taylor is one of Mac's former f*** buddies, and he has a huge reputation as a ladies man, and for having a huge something else - there is a big reason that women have given him the nickname 'The Walking Dildo'!  He's starting to get fed up with his lifestyle and hopes to find someone to settle down with.  The identity of Noah's heroine has been kept as a secret by the author, so I'm not going to say very much about her as I don't want to spoil anything.  I am a little smug though, as I correctly guessed who it would be. She is a great character, I loved her.  In the previous books I wasn't a big fan of Noah, he just seemed to be really cocky and a bit shallow.  He has redeemed himself in this book now though, there is much more to him than just a pretty face and a big package.

Finding Bliss is a another good addition to the fantastic Bliss series, I really enjoyed it.  The storyline is interesting and believable, the author's writing style is easy to read, and the characters are all well rounded and easy to relate to.  Finding Bliss gets five big stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
