Unexpected Bliss (Nights in Bliss, Colorado #13) by Sophie Oak ~ Book Review


Unexpected Bliss by Lexi Blake is now live!

Elisa Leal is looking for some joy in her life. Years of tragedy and struggle took their toll, and now she is searching for new connections to raise her spirits. When she discovers proof that her biological father is alive, she decides to find him and make contact. Her quest leads her to the small town of Bliss, Colorado, and the strangest man she's ever met—Mel Hughes. He believes in aliens and sasquatch conspiracies, but he's also kind of awesome. And there might be even more in Bliss to make her smile.

Sylvan Dean and Hale Galloway have enjoyed wandering their way through life, always in motion. Always searching for the woman who could make their life complete. Living in Bliss made them realize it's time to settle down. Van's finally going to college and has a job lined up with his brother when he finishes. That job is in Dallas, and while Hale is happy for Van, he can't imagine leaving Bliss behind. It feels like everything is coming apart until they meet Elisa. She's the one they have been searching for, and she is worth the wait.

The future looks bright until the guys' past comes back to haunt them. Danger lurks in every corner, but it may not be the biggest threat to their happily ever after. The citizens of Bliss know how to handle a killer, but handling Elisa, Van, and Hale might require some cosmic intervention.

Oh How I love being back in Bliss, Colorado and can you believe MEL HAS A DAUGHTER!

I knew going into this story it would be a hard one for me due to Elisa having just finished her treatments and reconstruction for Breast Cancer. I am coming up on the 10th anniversary of hearing those dreaded words. What I didn't expect was for me not to get past the Acknowledgments page without crying and that's because 2022 happened; with that Lexi Blake changed the trajectory of this story and was able to work through her own cancer journey though Elisa and I believe it gave the story a more powerful and hopeful feel to it.

 Elisa, Van, Hale are each new to the town of Bliss and have arrived for different reasons but it's as if they were called there so they could find one another. Elisa is in Bliss, to find the father she never knew and maybe begin a relationship with him. Her mother was always cold and strict, thankfully her dad is the total opposite. Van found himself in some trouble so his brother set him up in Bliss with a place to stay, a job, and he's paying for him to go back to school to get his degree. Hale is Van's best friend and moved to Bliss to be with him because he can't picture his life without Van in it.

This story is more than just Elisa connecting with her dad and falling for the two handsome men, we also have a bit of mystery/suspense. Someone is after either Hale or Van. Van is convinced it's him this person is after but if that's true why is Hale the one always in the line of fire?

Lexi Blake gives readers something we never knew we needed, Mel to have a family of his own. We know how great he is with the people in the town of Bliss, and have heard the stories of how he was always there for Max and Ry as well as a few others when they were younger, so it only makes sense that he should have a child of his own...even if she is an adult now.

Thank you Lexi for bringing us back to Bliss and I cannot wait for more. I jumped up and yelled YES when I read “The entire town of Bliss will return.”

I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, BDSM Romances, Menage Romances, Found Family Romances, or Romantic Suspense Reads.

Happy Reading!!!
