~Book Review~ “Far From Bliss” by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak

My Review:

After his partner, and lover, betrayed him, Michael Novack has lived alone on a mountain in Bliss with nothing but his anger.  The only thing keeping his interest in anything is Lucy Carson, even though he knows he isn’t good enough for her to even consider making a move.

Tyler Davis has loved Lucy since he was a kid, but he didn’t know how to act on it.  They are best friends and now he needs to find a way to make Lucy see him as more, all the while he tries to take care of her without her realizing it is him.

Lucy Carson has always put everyone else first in her life. She works hard to help provide for her siblings since her alcoholic father doesn’t.  She also doesn’t want to be seen as less than and strives to be independent and not take charity from anyone.  She also has a crush on Michael even though he never really speaks to her and has worked hard to put the love she has for Ty, her best friend, out of her mind because he’s never shown any interest in anything more.

Lexi Blake has given readers another fantastic trio in Far From Bliss.  Michael is wounded and needs to be able to move on and trust himself and others again.  Ty needs to prove himself to be the man he wants to be and Lucy needs to accept that it is okay to depend on others.  Together they all offer the others what they need while fitting together perfectly.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a Lexi Blake book set in Bliss without a murder to solve and some angst causing the trio in question to doubt everything before finding their happy ever after!

I adored these characters!  It was so wonderful to be back in Bliss!  These characters always feel like quirky family members.  There are some great new characters introduced (I can’t wait for more Van), some phenomenal allusions to the McKay Taggart crew (boy will that make readers of that series crack up) and some interesting theories on Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote!

With amazing suspense and  beautifully written characters that have flaws and baggage to deal with, Far From Bliss is everything fans of this series love and adore!  5 stars!

Far From Bliss, an all new must read novel, filled with emotion, angst and lust that will leave you on the edge of your seat from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak, is available now!


Shattered by the past

Michael Novak was a US Marshal with his whole life figured out. Right up until the woman he called partner betrayed him. He’s been hiding in Bliss, CO, trying to pull himself out of the darkness. The only bright light is Lucy Carson. Something about Trio’s favorite waitress calls to him, but he can’t trust his instincts anymore.

Yearning for the future

Lucy has loved Tyler since they were kids, but he never seemed to feel the same way. She worried she would never want a man the way she does Ty, and then Michael grumbled his way into her world. Beyond the broody exterior she sees a burning fire in his eyes, and she is drawn to that flame.

The time is finally right

Ty knows Lucy is the one for him, but Lucy wrote him off romantically long ago. If he could get her to see him in a different light, he knows she would realize that they’re perfect for each other. His obstacle is the town’s reclusive former lawman, Michael. But this is Bliss. A rival can turn into a partner for the right woman. And Lucy is definitely the right woman.

Ty approaches Michael with a plan to get Lucy between them. A bargain is made, and Lucy is their target. But Lucy is already in much more dangerous crosshairs. Murder has come to Bliss, and Lucy is at the center of the investigation.
