Yes, I have done the ménage, but in Russia, this is done with many women and only one man. It sound very sexy. The truth is a cock gets tired after a while and womens can be demanding.

Maybe one spoiler.

This series is a bit of hit and miss for me. The previous book was a hit (well 4 stars) and this is somewhat of a miss (2-3 stars) I think I’m going to be magnanimous and round up to 3 stars.

I mean my feelings on this one are mixed and nearly everyone loved it so call me the black sheep.

Maybe I’m bored of the same points that are covered in the book

I have been waiting for Alexei's story and fell in love with the mobster turned hero. I knew there would be a menage with Alexei, Holly and poor damaged Caleb but was a little wary how that would work out. I was not disappointed in that each of them had their demons and could only be whole together. I also loved that Holly was older than the men, Caleb by only a few years and 12 years older than Alexei.

I feel like I've been waiting ages for this book but really it's only been a few months since I first met these particular characters in One to Keep! Alexei was the member of the Russian mob who saved Holly and several others in that book and he's been in witness protection since then while he gave evidence against his former colleagues. Caleb is the doctor who saved Alexei's life after he was shot and who has been circling around Holly for years but hasn't had the courage to take things further ...more

First off, I have to say, if you have not read a book by Sophie Oak, you need to pick one up today! You will not be disappointed one bit. Ms. Oak is an ultimate storyteller. She somehow is able to bring out a variety of emotions in her novels that keeping you deeply interested in the storyline even when you are finished with the book. The way she writes about the characters in her stories have you relating to them in some way. It is always a plus that she revisits former couples throughout her b ...more

Back to Bliss! Is everyone trying to stay blissfully ignorant of people's past? Caleb's past sucked. Reading what he suffered was tragic. I don't know how Ms. Oak keeps coming up with terrible shit to break people. She's fucked up. Then for Holly's past. WTF. Her ex-husband Scott is a slimy son of a bitch. When he makes a guest appearance at the town, what he says and does totally floors me. I can't believe Ms. Oak wrote that dialog. I'm with Alexis, kill the bastard. On to Alexis - wowza.

Why can't Bliss be a real place?! Found in Bliss managed to have me both laughing and on the edge of my seat - often within pages of each other. It was fun and funny, yet also hot and suspenseful. Caleb can play doctor with me any time, and Alexei is more than welcome to tell me what to do. What I appreciate about Lexi Blake's manage stories is that all of the characters benefit from the relationship.

This is one of those series that I love more and more with each book that I read. I could not put Found In Bliss down. I love how we get an on going update on each of the previously featured couples with each book. I LOVED Alexei - his big Russian sexiness is definitely the star of the book in my humble opinion. While I appreciated the background we got on each character in the prologue, I feel like we really didn't get to know enough about Holly to truly bond with her as a character, but I did ...more

Another great addition to the series. I love how Alexei on the one hand exuded humility and naivete, yet was so worldly in other ways. I loved that he didn't give up on Caleb and that he came back for Holly and he tried so hard with Logan. I loved that Alexei and Caleb could make Holly feel wanted and beautiful after her ex and his family had been so horrid to her. Seriously? She's good enough to be a mistress but not a wife?

This is my favorite so far in the series. I found myself laughing so much while reading, not really what I expect when reading erotica. Part of it was the mangled English Alexei speaks, part is how the the townsfolk of Bliss act, and part is how Alexei and Caleb find a way to share Holly. The last part was a big appeal of the book. As much as I liked to see the men woo Holly, I loved even more how Alexei knew that both he and Holly needed Caleb and not in a sexual way. Alexei knew that they had ...more

I'll be the first to admit that I had some problems with the previous Sophie Oak books that could almost completely be summed up to one thing. The dynamics between the three people that were about to enter a three-way relationship were weird and they took too much time to stabilize. In this book, we have two men who had little interaction with each other and they were basically in a competition with each other and I was expecting some drama to happen and to see only one man being in a relationsh ...more

Have you ever had feelings for someone and they just don t act interested at all? This is the reality that Holly is facing with Caleb. In spite of dropping hint after hint, Holly doesn’t believe that her feelings are reciprocated. What Holly doesn’t realize is Caleb doesn’t feel worthy of her love. An insecurity that has left Holly feeling less than attractive from the lack of emotion from Caleb.

This is one of my top 5 Sophie Oak books. I LOVED Alexei, Holly and Caleb. Alexei came back to Bliss ready to make his menage happen. Caleb has wanted Holly but is too damaged to go after her. Holly has been hurt and is afraid to take what she wants. It takes Alexei and his big heart (among other things) to bring them together. This book was sweet, sexy and hilarious. These characters say what you wish people would say in real life. Another great one by Sophie Oak!

This is probably my favorite of the series. We got to know both Dr. Caleb Burke and his tormented past, and the reformed mobster Alexei. Alexei loved Holly, but he also knew Dr. Burke loved her and she loved both of them. Alexei proved to be a very adept matchmaker in bringing the three of them together. Both Dr. Burke and Alexei proved to be a couple of the sweetest characters.

This series is always a light and fun read. To be honest, most of the ménages are the same characters, just different names. One light male, one dark male, the hot chic is in trouble, men save her. But dog gone it, I always enjoy the books!

I found this one better than the rest, and really liked the Caleb character. Although I did get pissed at our female lead-- a lot.
Loved the relationship that grew between Caleb and Alexei in this book. To me it was the highlight. Once again sophie oak is awesome,love her towns, characters, sexy sex and everything else that goes into her books:-)

Found in Bliss by Lexi Blake is book five in her Nights in Bliss Series. A contemporary romance featuring a ménage among Holly Lang, ex-mob Alexei Markov, and Dr. Caleb Burke.

The story is interesting with these three characters finding how to be in a relationship together. Add in some suspense with someone trying to hurt the main characters and the additional drama with Holly's ex-husband and it makes for a quick moving story.

My favorite character was Alexei. He's very endearing and open with hi

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, given by the author.
I was so excited about this book!!!

I have to be honest I never paid any attention to Holly until Alexei saw her, I didn’t even know she was older than most of the girls.

Now it makes sense that she would be hesitant about getting involved in this special arrangement, she feels that her time has passed her by and she is scared to open her heart to only have it destroyed again.

Found in Bliss is the 5th book in the Nights in Bliss Series. Written by Sophie Oak. Lexi Blake’s alter ego. I absolutely LOVE this Series!!!! This is Holly Lang, Caleb Burke-Sommerville and Alexei Markov’s story!

Holly was really screwed by her ex-husband eight years prior to her story in this book. Caleb’s story starts out 6 years prior when he was in Seirra Leone and was rescued by the US Special Ops team. He was saved only because his family had money. And, Alexei’s story starts out 8 months

I have been looking forward to Holly, Caleb, and Alexei’s story since we got our first glimpse of their dynamic in One to Keep and I think I built it up too far in my head. It was still a fun book, with plenty of comedic relief in the form of the interesting population of Bliss and Alexei’s tenuous grasp of the English language, and I loved the triad together, I just expected more.

I felt like the Alexei we got to know in Found in Bliss was a much lighter, freer Alexei than we met in One to Keep.

So far, there isn't been a time when i haven't thoroughly enjoyed a Sophie Oak novel. They are refreshing and i love coming back to Bliss - even with the small mindedness of some individuals, this is a village/town that is generally accepting of lifestyles that so many don't accept.

I love the fact that through these stories, we find out why so many are actively searching for more than one partner, which really, is quite simple. Sometimes, one person just doesn't have everything that you

Book 5 in the Nights in Bliss series, while you can read this as a standalone, there are a lot of characters carrying over from book to book so you’ll get more enjoyment from this if you’ve read the earlier books. In particular, I’d recommended reading One To Keep, which sets up events here.
