Publisher's Summary

Chloe Carlyle has always longed for the perfect family.

Growing up with an alcoholic single mother, Chloe has seen her share of heartbreak and disappointment, and is striving to build a new legacy for herself. After graduating from college, she takes a job working as a summer girl for the Reeds - a wealthy, accomplished family that personifies her American dream. Her summer takes an unexpected turn when the Reeds' eldest son, Tyler, the star quarterback for Notre Dame, shows up and turns her life upside down.

An ambitious young woman with a wry sense of humor, Chloe never imagined herself as the type to succumb to the looks and charms of the hometown hero, but she falls hard for Tyler, and is devastated when they part ways at the end of the summer. As she heads off to law school, Chloe tries to convince herself this was just a fling, but she can’t quite get over him. It’s not until Tyler contacts her out of the blue late one winter night that everything changes.

After doing everything in her power to build the perfect life, Chloe soon learns that there are things beyond her control. She must draw on inner reserves of strength as her life takes unpredictable - and sometimes heartbreaking - twists and turns, and she finds herself faced with decisions she never thought she’d have to make.

Poignant, heartfelt, and emotional, Finding Bliss is a reminder that you don’t have to live a fairytale life in order to have a happy ending.

    Story
    "Finding Bliss is an emotionally charged book!"

    My first thought was how realistic this story seemed to be.This is the second book I've read of Dina Silver and I've noticed that she focuses on real issues that people can relate to. The writer explores a variety of topics in this book such as alcoholism, mental illness, marriage, infertility issues, spousal cheating, etc. We are able to watch a woman try to overcome obstacles and learn to appreciate the ups & downs of her rollercoaster life. She deals with the good, bad, and the ugly. The story begins when Chloe is in her early twenties and she is preparing to go stay with the Reed family as their nanny for the summer. During the summer, she starts to fall for the Reed's eldest son Tyler who also happens to be the Notre Dame quarter back. In the beginning, you see how this normally responsible girl is still very naïve when it comes to Tyler Reed. Honestly, I never connecting with Chloe & Tyler's relationship through out the entire book. I did however feel more of a connection between Chloe & Cam. As you can tell, I'm more of a team Cam rather than team Tyler. You watch Chloe fall in love and endure what life throws her way. Regardless, I found this book refreshing and raw. There is a wide variety of characters in this book. Some you will adore and some you will want to throttle. You will experience happy moments and then heart wrenching moments. You experience love, hope and then pain, anger. This book ends with many questions left unanswered. I'm hopeful there is a sequel so I can finally know what happens next in Chloe's life. I highly recommend this gut wrenching book!

    "fantastic book, terrible ending."
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. It was so detailed that i thought the ending was going to reveal the author as the main character. As the story unravels, you see the plot twists coming. thankfully, the main character isn't oblivious and makes all the assumptions I did as i was reading. I will say that the ending is abrupt and leaves me wanting more, but content with the stopping point.

    Story
    "not bad but..."

    Story was good. Covered a lot of time by skipping ahead. This is not the normal romance. More of telling the story of one woman's struggle finding love and then having a baby. As I said it's a good story. However, the end is abrupt and leaves too many strings hanging. Nothing is tidied up and you are left hanging. Doesn't seem like it'll be part of a series.

    There haven't been many books that left me feeling bereft once finished, but this is one of them. There is no sense of contentment once finished, where series or not. Too much a sense of unease and discontentment.

    "Did I miss the ending? (Spoiler)"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the writing of this book, but did I miss something at the end? Who did she pick? She doesn't make a great declaration of independence or dedication to anyone so I was confused the book ended abruptly and without an answer. I did enjoy the other aspects of the book. It did make me laugh and cry.

    Story
    "Interesting..."
    Where does Finding Bliss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a good story to listen too, but I didn't feel connected with the characters. I wanted to be more connect with Cam (I only imagine his feels with Chloe). Also, Tyler as well, I only assume he was a player all along, but it would be great to have been his story.


    What other book might you compare Finding Bliss to and why?

    I can't think of any..


    Which character – as performed by Cristina Panfilio – was your favorite?

    I think Cristina played each character very well, it was easy to determine who was who.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story was really good until end. It left you hanging, I hoping there's a second book. The emotions that played into this story line got me in my stomach. I think I was more upset than laughing or crying.

    There were some emotional moments for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't fond of the open ending.
