Blog Tour - Temporary Bliss by BJ Harvey

Title: TEMPORARY BLISS (Bliss # 1, New Erotic Romance Series)
Author: BJ Harvey

Published: August 29th

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't). 

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.

They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.  

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.  

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you’re Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?


“What did Zander give you? If Sean gave you dominance, and Noah was to pass the time, what about Zander. What need did he fulfill?” he asks deadpan.

“Why are you asking me this, Daniel? I thought we were past all this?”

“We are. We were.  I just need to know.”
“So I can prove to you that I can be everything you need and more. So that you can realize how much I want you in every way possible. So that you can stop freaking out and walking on egg shells around me because you’re scared I’m going to leave.”
“Daniel, I…” I see him tighten his grip on the steering wheel, and I realize that this is not the time for questions. This is the time for answers; to give Daniel the answers. To help him understand why I do what I do, or rather, why I did what I did in the past.
“Daniel, I thought we’d talked about this? Do we need to talk about it all over again?”
“I don’t know,” he answers stoically.
Now that’s got my back up. “Fine, you want to know, I’ll tell you!”
“No…. NO. I don’t want to know, but it’s always there, Mac. Just how you didn’t like Nikki touching me tonight, I can’t stand the thought of another man, or men, touching you, being inside you. Fuck, it’s driving me insane.”
I’m 31 years old and live in New Zealand, the most beautiful country in the world.

I love reading, and started writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. Before that I’d written business and website articles professionally but never fiction. I love the indie community, authors, bloggers and readers alike and have met so many awesome people that I now call dear friends.

I’m a huge music lover as well. I REALLY love music. If there isn't music playing, something is wrong. And it’s a wide range of music too, I might surprise you with my eclectic tastes.

I'm also a wife, mother of two gorgeous girls and currently working for myself as well as studying full time to become an accountant of all things. I also have a Bachelor of Communications.

My author inspirations are: Michelle Leighton, Barbara Elsborg and Kristen Ashley.


I loved Temporary Bliss!!!!!
Makenna Lewis is a commitment phobe enjoying an ideal 'friends with benefits' arrangement with 3 hot guys, Noah, Sean and Zander. What's not to love about that? No strings, no headaches and no dirty laundry on the floor lol.
"I'm not easy. I'm free spirited."
Until...... Hellooooo Daniel Winters!!!!
Makenna's vows are seriously tested when she has a chance encounter with the gorgeous Daniel Winters. Spending time with Daniel is slowly melting the ice that has been formed around her heart for so long.
'Daniel snuck into my heart when I wasn't looking'
There were some really funny moments throughout the book, and none more so then when Makenna discovers that Daniel and one of her 'friends with benefits' know each other.
"Fuck, this is awkward. Penis number one meet penis number four. You can't make this shit up. Seriously, kill me now!"
The rest of the book is like a roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs, laughter and tears, steamy sex galore and so much more. I even sniffled in a few parts. This book had it all!
Makenna is such a strong minded character and it was great to see her finally challenged in the love stakes.
"So, tell me about this man who has conquered the fortress known as Makenna Lewis' heart."
This book also had an underlying message that we should all learn from. It made you really stop and think about why people are the way they are, and how life circumstances change us and our way of thinking. After being hurt you are less likely to put yourself out there but good things can happen when you do!!
'Whatever happened in the past belongs in the past. Learn from it, grow, and move on. Don't let it determine your future."
Temporary Bliss was just that, a blissful read that I highly recommend to everyone.
