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 have settled in Bliss for the time being. All that changes when Jesse meets Gemma. He is besotted and believes that he has finally found “the one”. Cade is equally enamoured but his dark past means that he is more standoffish as he feels he doesn’t deserve her. When Gemma’s fiance comes to town, danger abounds. Can Jesse and Cade keep the women they have come to care for safe or will the walls that she has surrounded herself with cost her, her life? Chasing Bliss is a fun, smoking hot read with plenty of emotions and heartache which will keep you captivated. It is always great to revisit Bliss because you get to see glimpses of previous characters and catch up on their lives. I love the quirkiness of the characters who call Bliss home and I cannot wait for the next adventure in Bliss.

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. Gemma is an intriguing character. She is a strong and independent woman but at the same time because of the loss she lived through as a child, her heart is so tightly locked away that any sign of love or even real affections makes her hide behind her sassy and not so friendly attitude. She build her life striving for professional success and relationships without emotion. Until all that collapsed and left her with nothing but her hurt pride and even higher walls around her heart. When she moves to Bliss, she sees the small town only as a place to re-group before she starts building her life again. But you all know what they say about best laid plans and all that. Ones she meets Jesse and Cade, the attraction between them is undeniable and even with her fear of commitment and emotional relationships, Jesse's determination and charm manages to carve a path through her walls. But as you can imagine, things are never that easy and unfortunately Jesse has not only to win Gemma but also convince Cade that there is a future for the three of them together. Cade's story is so heartbreaking and though it is not revealed nearly until the end of the book, the snippets here and there just tore my heart into peaces. Because of the losses he lived through as a child and as an adult, he doesn't believe he deserves happiness. It takes quite some time and a threat to the lives of the two people he loves the most in the world for him to realize that life is so much better with them by his side and that he is worth the affection and love that they can bring him. In the midst of this filled with hope and healing heartbreaking story, danger is lurking in the darkness and threatening the HEA that Jesse, Gemma and Cade are seeking to find. But all that only makes the story so much better and another page-turner that will glue you to your seat until you read the last word. So be sure to get your copy as soon as possible. I am sure you won't regret it. And though this is the seventh book in a series, it is a standalone so you can read it on it's own. I am sure you will enjoy it more though, if you read the other books in the series first. You will also get to revisit with your favorite characters as well :D I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own

Gemma, Cade, and Jesse pack an emotional punch. Not because they are woebegone, but because they appear to have it all together. On the inside though, they have the same crippling moments of anxiety most people do. They face it alone, and when they finally realize they can rely on each other, everything falls into place for them!

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 she is so headstrong, take charge, and well bull-headed that what is right in front of her she might miss before it is too late. I really hope this is not the last book we get out of this crazy but wonderful town of Bliss!

Wow! Just finished reading this novel by Lexi Blake, and it was terrific! Her novels always are, and I should know since I’ve read all of this Nights in Bliss, Colorado, series, as well as Texas Sirens, the Lawless Series, Masters of Menage with Shayla Black, and the first series I began reading and still am as each story is released for Masters and Mercenaries. The storyline kept me wanting to turn the page and on the edge of my seat. I loved all the characters which are all well developed, and can hardly wait for the next book. I also love the way characters in her previous stories make appearances. She interweaves all the stories so perfectly. There are always much humor and wit to make me laugh outright, as well as a wide range of feelings. Thanks for a great read. I highly recommend this book.

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 in more ways than she'd care to talk about and letting a man get close isn't in the cards let alone two of them but Ms. Blake, who is writing as Sophie Oak, really knows how to make things work with the hardest of couples. This story isn't all flowers and rainbows, there is someone sending Gemma threatening notes and packages, but again if you've read any of this series you know there is always a bit of suspense to the stories, and Jesse as well as Cade have to keep their girl safe....if she'll let them. While each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone I would suggest reading them in order because the town folk do play a big part throughout each of the stories and if you don't know their pasts it can be a huge spoiler. The town of Bliss Colorado is the place to be if you are looking for a great menage story that doesn't only revolve around the HOT sexy times but also gives you something to sink your teeth into story wise. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog**

Love this series so so much. I would give anything to live in a town like Bliss. So well written that the books feel like I’m in them, living along side all the characters.

Chasing Bliss by Sophie Oak - Lexi Blake is book seven in her Nights in Bliss series. Every book is about another couple, but the stories have some cross-overs and I recommend to read them in order. Chasing Bliss is Gemma, Jess and Cade's story. Gemma Wells is back in Bliss, Colorado after a major scandal in NY destroyed her career as lawyer. She works odd jobs and tries to find her footing. Jesse and Cade are brothers, not by blood, but by choice. Both have some issues and invisible scars. But they're drawn to the sassy lawyer who gives them a run. Meet ape man, the sweet one, a strong heroine and a captivating story. I started reading and was hooked from start til the end. I liked the story and the writing and give 4,5 stars.

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. In Chasing Bliss, Gemma Wells leaves her old life behind, giving up on love after being burned by her ex and destroying her professional life because she lost focus on what’s most important to her, not just the man who she thought would be her everything. What I found most interesting about Gemma is that her ‘ice princess’ moniker didn’t really seem to fit her…at least not who she is in Bliss. Readers who read Pure Bliss are familiar with Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair. Their reasons for coming to Bliss may have been about revenge more than anything else, but they’ve remained here and now call it their home. These two men are the best of friends and both want a relationship with a woman that includes the other. But this is where things get a bit messy and complicated because as much as they’re both attracted to Gemma and want her to complete their threesome, Cade doesn’t know how to let go of his past and move forward, which is a huge road block for making things work amongst the three of them, and Cade’s behavior while understandable made me extremely frustrated with him almost to the point that I wanted Gemma and Jesse to leave Cade behind if he couldn’t get his act together. Catching up with previous heroes and heroines is another aspect of this series that I love. Even just a small check-in with them allows readers to see how these characters have grown and how they’re still living their best lives with the ones they love. Gemma, Jesse, and Cade’s journey definitely has its ups and downs, partly due to their individual issues and concerns and partly due to Gemma’s past coming back to wreak even more havoc than it already has. But despite what these three are up against, it’s clear that the feelings they have for one another is strong enough to endure anything, even their own self-sabotaging ways. 4 Poison Apples

This is mechanics and best friends thirty year old Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair, and thirty year old attorney Gemma Wells’ story line. CHASING BLISS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. NOTE: CHASING BLISS is a re-release of the author’s 2012 release originally written as Sophie Oak. CHASING BLISS is an M/F/M romance and contains graphic sexual ménage situations that may not be suitable for all readers. Told from three third person perspectives (Jesse, Cade, Gemma) CHASING BLISS follows in the wake of attorney Gemma Wells discovering the to whom she was engaged in bed with someone else. Heading home to Bliss, Colorado following a mental breakdown wherein she lost her job and her self-respect, Gemma’s reputation as a hard-nosed, take no prisoners attitude precedes our heroine arrival to town. Meeting mechanics Jesse McCann and Cade Sinclair stirred something deep within our story line heroine, something she never expected but was hoping to uncover. Several threats against Gemma places our heroine in the direct line of fire, threats that will target the men with whom she is falling in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Gemma, Jesse and Cade, and the potential fall-out as Gemma’s past comes seeking revenge in an effort to destroy and hide any information she may have uncovered. Jesse and Cade have been best friends since their days in the foster care system but meeting Gemma Wells gave the men thoughts for a future, a future Cade believes he doesn’t deserve. Hoping to prove herself worthy of both men, Gemma struggles with her own attitude and history, and her ability to turn on a moments notice. The relationship between Gemma, Jesse and Cade is one of immediate attraction but Gemma’s acerbic personality leaves something to be desired. Seeing Gemma as something more than the sum of her attitude and strong-willed emotional outbursts Jesse is determined to prove she is worthy of love but Cade is determined to prove he is unworthy of both. Heart breaking childhoods push Cade to walk away while Jesse struggles to keep everyone together. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense with M/F/M sexual situations. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters, most of whom we have met in previous instalments. Bliss, Colorado is a town whose residents tend to find happiness in polygamous relationships, relationships wherein everyone gets his and her and his own happily ever after. CHASING BLISS is an intriguing story of betrayal and vengeance. The character driven premise is inviting and imaginative; the romance is encouraging, spicy and raw; the characters are energetic, animated and flirty. CHASING BLISS is a spirited, sexy and sassy story of love, drama, and intrigue.
