Blissed is Book One in the Misfit Brides Series.
I was already a big fan of Jamie Farrell and Blissed just secured her spot as one of my all time favorite authors. I fell in love with her Officers’ Ex-Wives Club and had high hopes for the Misfit Brides. Jamie Farrell didn’t disappoint. I loved Blissed so much I already own the second book, Matched. Now, if only school was back in session and I had some mommy time to read it.
Natalie grew up in the lovely town of Bliss and her life was scripted out much like every other child of Bliss. Her future involved following in her mother’s footsteps and seeing that the biggest festival of the year went off without a hitch. She just had one problem and that was that her nemesis CJ was the only way to make that happen. But she has to suck up her pride and get him to work with her to make the festival happen. CJ and Natalie have both loved and lost, locking up their hearts when they did. What does Jamie hold in store for their future’s? Pick up Bliss and see. (It was free on Amazon when I bought mine. But always check prices before you hit that one-click button.)
This was a well written book. I have since listened to the audiobook of this and it flowed so nice. The story sucked me right in from the very beginning. The characters could be people I knew they were so well written. They had flaws and imperfections mixed in with their lovable personalities.
I always have trouble deciding my favorite character. I liked Natalie, she reminds me of me a bit. But she’s a bit narrow sighted. That’s great because it makes her all the more believable but I think I liked CJ’s family as a whole the best. They are such a wide variety of fun personalities. They always made me smile.
And I usually can’t tell my favorite part without giving away the plot… But I can tell you my least favorite part was when the evil video running the town did everything in her power to ruin business for Natalie at her family’s shop. The scenes were always well written I just didn’t care for the protagonist but that’s nothing new for me.
So if you like to laugh and maybe cry a bit while reading a lit fun romance I suggest you look into picking this book up. It would be a great addition to your summer reading list.
