The one who hugged me is Jesse McCann, and he’s apparently a bit of a pervert. The one who’s running away is the man formerly known as Bare-Chested Ape Man. His real name is Cade. Sinclair, I think. Apparently he likes to be naked. Like a lot. This place is weird.”
Naomi grinned. “This place is awesome. So you’re being pursued by a nudist and a Dom?”

This is my favorite one yet! I loved how Jesse was all in after one glimpse of Gemma. Cade needed some convincing but only because he feared caring for someone who could hurt him in the end. Gemma was sassy and I loved her banter with Cam. I enjoy friendships like Gemma and Cam's. I'm such a fan of all the side characters showing up in every book. I grow to love them more and more. Most of them are insane but that's the charm of these books. I can't wait to read more! ...more

Leaving everything behind she has returned to her mother's hometown, Bliss, in the hope that she can start to rebuild her career in a few months time when the scandal has blown over. She is determined not to stay in Bliss and her defensive walls are doing a great job of keeping the residents at a distance but two guys are determined to ch ...more

It’s crazy to see that I read the first edition of 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗕𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘀 by Lexi Blake (writing as Sophie Oak) back in December of 2012, and yet the moment I started this second edition, I felt like no time went by at all. I loved this series, these characters, the author’s ability to make me FEEL all the things, when I first discovered it…but now, if it’s at all possible, I love ALL OF IT even more this time around.

Death by Strawberries! That's a new one. But seriously, I have two friends who are allergic to strawberries and they carry their EPI pen with them. At any functions, we are super careful about strawberries in our salads or desserts. Last thing we want is someone to go into shock. It's not a pretty sight. In Chasing Bliss, Gemma is the disgraced big city lawyer who went postal. Personally, I think she was justified. Patrick was an asshole and "big tits" whatever her name was a be-yotch.

Gemma Wells is about to find out how true that is after she tazes one of the town's citizens. She gets the choice of serving jail time and paying a huge fine or agreeing to work as the sheriff's office manager. The only proble

If you have been reading the Nights in Bliss, Colorado Series you'll remember meeting the HOT mechanics, Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair, or as Gemma likes to refer to them - The Sweet One and The Bare-Chested Ape Man ;) Seriously though these two men are as close as brothers and well, in a way they are. We get to know more about the boys and newcomer Gemma in this addition to the series.

Gemma is a hoot, I tell you she is perfect for Jesse and Cade. She is sweet yet brash, she's been screwed over

Gemma was a hard person to warm up to. I really bought her Ice Princess veneer. I did hate what she found when she came home at the start of the book. I sort of caught on to that Patrick was using her, so it didn't surprise me all that much, but Gemma's response did. I do wish that there would have been more descriptions to that.

I liked Jesse and Cade, but I did get tired of Cade's whole "I'm not a good guy" routine. It seemed like so much of the relationship between the 3 were one step forward

It always feels like coming home when Lexi Blake releases another story that takes place in Bliss, Colorado; because even though the main characters change, the small town inhabitants are still their quirky and entertaining selves, adding the perfect amount of comic relief to the mix of steam, suspense, and action that readers have come to expect when new people move to Bliss in order to start over but who and what they left behind aren’t quite finished with them.

5 Star Review Chasing Bliss (Nights In Bliss Colorado# 7) by Sophie Oak

Running from a scandal that she hasn’t gotten over, Gemma Wells , an attorney, has settled in Bliss with her mother. She has put up walls and is determined to not let any man in again, let alone two.

Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair were introduced in the previous book and they captured my attention from the first moment they were mentioned. Initially arriving in Bliss to seek revenge (which they achieved) they now appear to hav

This is the 7th book in the Nights in Bliss, CO. This book should be read in order but doesn't have to. They do mention the characters from the previous book but not in real detail.

Again this author had a way of drawing me into the book just like all the previous ones. I like how she builds the characters. It helps me feel like I know them. I get lost in the book and I can see myself in it.

After 7 books with only one not being a menage, it's nice to know the author can still keep the story line

Now she's in her mother's hometown, trying to put her life back together and caring for her mother as she recovers from cancer treatment.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Chasing Bliss by Lexi Blake is book 7 in the Nights in Bliss. This is the story of Gemma Wells, Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair. I have been reading the books in order, and I think that added to my enjoyment. The previous characters from previous books are a sold show in all the books, but if you don't want to read them in order you can do so. This book and series has had some hot scene, some funny scene and the hot alpha males. Gemma is an attorney that doesn't come off to friendly at first but ...more

And now we get Gemma, Jesse, and Cade all new to the Bliss town of Colorado. But are all part of the craziness we have come to love. Gemma is hiding out and taking care of her mother who is in all fairness a hippie and is part of the Bliss craziness more than her daughter at first.

Jesse and Cade we met in the last book when they were looking for Holly's ex-husband. But now that they have their business all finished up they are finally ready to settle down, and Gemma has caught their eye. But

Gemma is an awesome character. She was who she was & she didn’t make any excuses about it. I loved how ballsy she was, she was a perfect fit for Bliss & especially for the Sheriff’s department. Even though I wanted to smack Cade a lot I still loved him & Jesse. Another great read set in Bliss. I can’t wait to get the next books in this series. I want Henry’s & Nell’s so bad I’m trying to stop myself from skipping ahead haha!

I really enjoyed Gemma, Cade, and Jesse’s story. Gemma was a likable and relatable character. Jesse and Cade were both super hot alpha men, which never hurts. Together that were perfect, and I’m really looking forward to seeing them all in the future.

The Hs were complete opposites, one steady and ready and the other also in full panic mode, wanting to run away. It was intense and while I liked the story, the characters not so much. Still way better than so many other menage stories so decided I loved it for 4 stars. ...more

Another good book in the Bliss, Colorado series. I love Ms. Oak's writing and try to read everything that she publishes. It is wonderful that she has interlinked the Bliss series and the Siren series. Seeing the characters of one series show up on the other makes it seem more like a huge community living their lives the way that makes them happy. This story is no different. I long time jerk from the Siren series is brought to justice in this story. It would be nice if it was thi

Another emotional read from Sophie Oak.

Cade Sinclair and Jesse McCann, Long-Haired Roger's mechanics who were introduced in the last Bliss book, came to Bliss for revenge. Since helping James, Noah, and Hope get rid of Christian Grady, they've stayed in Bliss, unsure of what to do with their lives.

Gemma Well's path was set until an unfortunate event changes everything. She comes to Bliss with her mom, hoping to regroup and move on.

When the three meet, Jesse falls hard, but it's not exactly love
So, Awesome! I am ready to pack my bags and move to Bliss!

Sophie Oak has a wonderful way of telling a story that makes you laugh out loud, cry a box of tissues and never want it to end!

Gemma is awesome! Who wouldn't love a girl for taking a taser to Max!! Loved it!! From the opening scene!

Jesse and Cade are a perfect match for her! I love it when Stef plays matchmaker!

I need Michael and Sawyer to have stories in the not so distant future!

Another winner from a fantastic author!

This book took a bit to get into. Cade constantly trying to leave did drag after awhile but great mystery and suspense. I really like Cade being a naturist always taking his shirt off or wanting to get naked. In this book u got to see another side of Henry Flanders when he comes to rescue. Really looking forward to next book seeing how Henry went from government tight ass to tofu loving pacifist. As always great HEA, sexy, kinky and beautiful all in one book.

What works about these books, and what worked when they were first published, is that you like and are invested in all of the characters.

Cade, Jesse and Gemma are the leads in this title and you like them and their story.

With a menage title you need to have an instant, or close to it, attraction or the story stalls and I enjoyed how this was handled.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

One of the reasons I love Lexi Blake's books is because she perfectly marries super hot (and a little bit kinky) love stories with suspense and danger. And no matter how many of her books I read, I still get surprised by some of the twists and turns she implements into her stories. As you can probably predict, that was the case with Chasing Bliss as well. The book is filled with romance, heat, hope, humor and a little bit of heartbreak but the danger and suspense are never too far behind.

As I tend to prefer Lexi Blake’s urban fantasy, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Chasing Bliss, book 7 in the Nights in Bliss series. The characters had a nice depth to them and the people of Bliss kept me laughing out loud. And, of course, Blake’s trademark love scenes are present in all their ménage glory (which she does better than any other author I’ve read).

While I haven’t read the previous books in the series, it was easy to pick up what’s come before in Bliss. Gemma, Cade, and Jesse

I was given a copy of ‘Chasing Bliss’ as an ARC, and it is the seventh book in the ‘Nights In Bliss’ series by Sophie Oak.

I’ve chosen to read this series in a bit of a mish mash order, but I always believe that if a writer is good enough, you will still understand the going’s on of their creative world, and this was definitely the case for the small town of Bliss. I may have been missing some tension and build up from the main characters past, but it did not take anything away from my reading o
