More to Love by Alison Bliss
More to Love (A Perfect Fit) - Alison Bliss

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had some issues with this book. This was really more of a 2.5-star read but since I am feeling generous, I am rounding up. I have had a review copy of this book for quite a while but hadn't had the chance to read it so I decided to pick up the audiobook and give it a try. I thought that the narrator did a great job but I just couldn't ever get completely behind this story.

Jessa was great. She was confident and an all-around nice girl. She worked hard and wanted to play by the rules. She wasn't afraid to take risks or go for what she wants. And then there is Max. Max ruined this story for me. He lies when he meets Jessa and doesn't stop lying for the whole book. Jessa deserved better than that.

I did enjoy seeing Jessa connect with the people in town. I also thought that Max and Jessa had great chemistry and there was some potential for their relationship. My problem is the Max waits way too long to come clean and his lies go on way too long. He even takes steps to keep the deceit going after he has started to get involved with her. There were just a lot of lines crossed in this story. Every time Max had an opportunity to come clean with Jessa and didn't take it, I lost some respect for his character. By the end of the book, I had no respect left. Jessa deserved better.

I thought that Violet Strong did a great job with the narration. Her narration was one of the highlights of the book. She did a great job with the character voices and had a great reading voice. I had no problem listening to her narration for hours at a time. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to more of her narration work.

I think that there are some readers that will enjoy this one more than I did. I have a hard time with romances where one character is deceiving the other so this one didn't work for me. I haven't quite given up on this author and would love to try more of her work in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley and purchased a copy of the audiobook.

Initial Thoughts
More like 2.5 stars but I am rounding up because the narrator did a good job. I didn't like Max at all. It is really hard to fully enjoy a romance when one of the characters is completely unlikable. Max is lying for almost the entire story and I think that it was a big enough deception to make it hard to want to see this relationship work. Jessa was great and I think she deserved better.

Two Books about spooks
The Boo! Book - Nathaniel Lachenmeyer,Nicoletta Ceccoli
A Very Brave Witch - Alison McGhee,Harry Bliss

These two books are not really scary.  A Brave Witch is about conforting fear and is wonderful because it has two girls.  A Boo! Book deals with what to do if you have a haunted book, and, therefore, should be read by readers everywhere.  Both have nice illustrations.

Release Day Review! Law of Attraction (Tangled in Texas #3) Alison Bliss!
Law of Attraction - Alison Bliss

 

 

For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She's focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.

 

Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn't plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.

 

The closer they get, the more they can't seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth's mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission...

 



The third Tangled in Texas book, Law of Attraction is a great read that grabbed my attention right from the start and held me captive throughout.

 

Bobbie and Seth are well developed and strong, captivating characters with lots of sizzling chemistry sparking between them and their romance is one that is ‘real’ with lots of tangled up emotions and trust issues that keep the relationship on a rocky slope. Sparks fly and lots of passion heat up the pages but at no point is their relationship a sure thing which keeps readers in suspense regarding their happily ever after until the very end, it certainly had me wondering if they would overcome the emotional strife and the secrets Seth is holding back. Seth’s interaction with Bobbie’s son adds sweet and heartwarming feelings to the story along and there is also some chuckles to be found in this story as well.

 

The plot flows smoothly with a steady to fast pace and of course lots of suspense and romance that kept me glued to the pages. The suspense regarding the romance is only part of the story as Bobbie has problems with another male from her past and Seth has an enemy that causes some excitement as well as does Bobbie’s overprotective friends with a few intense scenes.

 

I have read all three books in the Tangled is Texas series and I have to tell you that each and every one of them has been a joy to read. Each of them can be read as standalone stories but for me reading all the stories makes them even better because of all the personal connections between the characters. The stories are full of insight and everyday life occurrences and provides wonderful heartwarming happily ever afters and I can’t wait to read what Alison Bliss has in store for us next.

More to Love (A Perfect Fit) - Alison Bliss

This is book #3, in the A Perfect Fit series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading in order.

 

Max pretends to be something he is not in order to get his way, and solve a problem for a friend.  Only he has no intention of falling for the woman he lies to.  How to fix it once he realizes the inevitable? 

 

Jessica cannot believe there are so many people who love her efforts.  Coming to this new town and being accepted is a big deal in her life.  To find a man who gets her was just plain unexpected.  When the truth comes out, can she forgive a well meaning man?

 

This was a sweet and sexy installment to this great series.  The characters have great banter, heat, and sexy times.  I love how the challenge of chasing the girl is so very prominent in this story.  You really feel the struggle and the end result is so worth it!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review, by Netgalley and its publisher.

More to Love (A Perfect Fit)
More to Love (A Perfect Fit) - Alison Bliss
I have nothing but love for Alison Bliss and her Perfect Fit series. She empowers women with a strength of character that is light hearted and in no way mean spirited. She proves that you don't have be a size 0 to get the most out of life. This time around, she gives the tale a surprising twist in Max Hager. He's funny, sexy, an all around stand up guy with hidden insecurities that haunt him everyday. Jessa is a go getter. She doesn't wait for life to happen to her. She makes it happen for herself. Max could learn a few things from her. More to Love is a pleasurable, humorous and heartwarming look at how the plus size live. It inspires and for that I admire her and am a fan for life.
