REVIEW: Pure Bliss by Lexi Blake Writing as Sophie Oak
Re-released in a second edition with new content.
The town of Bliss, Colorado, offered Hope McLean a second chance at life, a gift she cherishes every day. Her past was dominated by dark secrets and regret, most of which centered on a man named Christian Grady. All of that was behind her now, years of horror distilled down into the occasional nightmare or a random feeling of being watched. Surrounded by new friends, she tried hard to leave the past where it belonged—in the rearview mirror.
Raised together, James Glen and Noah Bennett were the best of friends. They dreamed of growing up in Bliss, finding love, and settling down to share their lives on the Circle G ranch. James would manage the day-to-day operations of the ranch while Noah served the town as the resident veterinarian. Everything was perfectly planned out, until a woman came between them and their future shattered. Noah left Bliss for New York City and James was left to struggle to keep the Circle G alive on his own.
Noah returns to Bliss on a mission to rebuild his life. When he sees Hope, he knows his return home was meant to be. Hope’s kindness shines like a beacon calling him to her. Unfortunately, he isn’t the only man interested in Hope. James is also interested in the beautiful girl with a mysterious past. He can’t be forced to choose between the woman of his dreams and his best friend again.
As romance begins to bloom, a dark specter from Hope’s past returns to claim her. To save Hope, and themselves, James and Noah will have to rebuild the relationship they lost and fight for their future with Hope together.

As always I love heading to Bliss, Colorado and spending time with my favorite town of eclectic people.
James and Noah were brothers and the best of friends until a woman comes between them. They go their separate ways and don’t speak for years. James brings in a partner to help him with the ranch and keep it afloat while Noah learned just what the woman who came between the brothers was really all about. Now Noah is coming home to Bliss but along the way he manages to pick up James’ long time crush Hope who has car trouble.
James is anything but happy to see Hope in Noah’s arms let alone returning to Bliss. Hope has found peace, safety, and friends in Bliss. She is running from a past that can destroy her when it catches up with her. While the brothers have to come to terms with their own pasts as well as the fact they are both attracted to Hope.
This is the sixth book in the series and as always I love returning to Bliss. It is the town I want to live in. Even though it does have a high murder rate (they import it all as the locals will tell you.) This is also a book where we see that maybe Henry wasn’t always the pacifist we think he is. He will do whatever it takes to protect the town and woman he loves. At first glance bliss may seem like a town full of crazy people but once the layers are pulled back you see just how much love and understanding the people of Bliss have.
