I lied to myself again. “I’ll just read for a little while,” I thought. “I’ll even set the timer on my phone to remind myself to stop reading.” Timer goes off. “Only one more page” (hahaha, see what I did there?).
Blissed is one of those books I couldn’t put down. Admittedly, it took me a few chapters to get into, but once I did I was awake until ONE-THIRTY in the MORNING and I had to get up at 5:30. By the way, I love my snooze button. I got up at 6:00. And yes, that needed shouty caps.
On to the book. Jamie is a funny writer. Big, ear-to-ear, grinning, laugh-out-loud, funny. Some of the antics these characters get up to are hilarious and made me miss my best-friend and wish I had a big family (although I’m not sure how I would feel about eleven sisters).
But Blissed also has those punch-in-the-gut emotional moments that breaks your heart. Not just between the love interests, but between fathers and daughters, brothers and brothers, mothers and sons.
There were some things I didn’t like, but I’m not inclined to share what those are. What bugs me may not bug someone else and each reader has their own likes and dislikes and it wasn’t enough to put me off the over all story.
The characters are nuanced and layered. Each has their own, distinct personality that never leaves the reader in doubt that these are not cookie-cutter romance characters. While I was reading Blissed, I was already imagining what the stories would be like for the Lindsey and Kimmie. Thankfully, because I started this series late, I don’t have to wait. Unfortunately, I’ll power read through the series and then be bereft that there is nothing waiting for me.
Unless there’s a plan for some of the eleven sisters….
Oh, also – it’s free.
