Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug used against women with one single purpose in mind ....

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn't the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She's down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick's ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.

When Travis, Nick's right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.


Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it's Nick's game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it's a losing game.

Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it's far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands…

As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life.
 It's opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills.

While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul.

It's every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.


This is Julianna’s story. She lived a normal life until she was about to turn twenty-one, and then all hell broke loose. Years of diabolical scheming unraveling at the seams, unleashing torrents of lies and deceit. The whirlwind of chaos and heartbreak will forever change the game.

Her chosen fate is one of stellar proportions, and she struggles to keep sane, trying to hold it together every step of the way. As the matrix of her concealed past unfolds to deliver the final blow, rationality and sanity begin to take on a definition and meaning of its own.

Nick thinks he’s the night in shining armor while Travis believes he will be enough to save her from herself, but does she even want to be saved?

Both men want her. Both men love her, and both men want to claim her, keeping her for themselves. But, as usual, Julianna has other plans.

**The Blyss Trilogy: An Adult Dark Romantic Suspense. This contemporary erotic captive romance book is full of suspense, action, and adventure. This is a dark, erotic thriller that will have you hanging on to the edges of your e-reader as you wonder which alpha male you want to fall in love with. Will you be team Travis or team Nick?**


Blyssfully Undone is the third and concluding installment to the Blyss trilogy. And Travis is still as hot as ever, so I'm very much Team Travis. But I will say, there's a scene towards the end with Nick that could definitely give Travis a run for his money, just saying.

I wasn't exactly sure how I felt about this last one and I think it had to do with how I wasn't able to connect with Jules and how the book ended. This time around, she's not all drugged up so we got a furious girl with a lot of unanswered questions. And lets top it off with a crap ton of lies; they just keep piling up, so how do you expect her to feel? She's quite the spitfire and definitely not one to be messed with.

For most of the book it's a wild goose chase with bullets flying, fleeing from once place to the next. And we get to meet a few of Trav's friends and I wouldn't mind having books about them, I'm highly interested!

It's jam packed with action, suspense, and steamy scenes that'll always leave you wanting more.

Now to the end, it felt very unfinished to me and quick? I'm not really sure how to explain it, throughout the book you're wondering if she'll seek out revenge of Nick, who pretty much destroyed her life. There's definitely more people involved with the downfall, but you'll just have to read to find that out. I think I wanted to things to end differently, there were so many different scenarios that played out in my mind, but the way it went wasn't very realistic to me. By the end, Jules has gone through so much trauma, physically and emotionally, pretty much to the point of being unstable. I guess I wanted to see more of her recovery because it would have definitely been a long road for her.

Overall, it was good conclusion to the trilogy, but I wouldn't say it was my favorite in the series.
