Blog Tour and Giveaway: Temporary Bliss by BJ Harvey

~ Synopsis ~
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?

~ Our Review ~
5 Star Review by Annie

What do you get when you mix Sex and The City, Superman and a hot x rated movie?

You get an amazing sexy read filled with different guys to satisfy all of your needs and then some! What else do you need? As if the hot guys weren't enough, this book was full of angst, comedy and self discovery. Plus it has a strong lead female, which is rare to find in books!

After finally escaping an unhealthy overbearing relationship, Mac had decided to swear them off. She would never be controlled. So to fill her needs she just uses guys for sex, and nothing else. She has three different guys "a penis harem" that brings different things to the table... bed... or even a wall. That is until she met Delicious Daniel, and he makes her start feeling things she has never felt. And it literally scares the shit out of her. Can Mac get over her past and give relationships a try? Or does she just add another man to her little black book?

Daniel is a smooth talking southern gentleman. He wants nothing more than to please Mac and give her everything she needs. The problem is no matter how hard he tries, she keeps putting up more walls and obstacles for him to overcome. There is only so much a man can take. Does Daniel finally get Mac to give a relationship a shot? Or does he finally reach his breaking point and just walk away?

This book was definitely a must read. I loved all the different flavors the guys brought into the mix. I felt like a kid in the candy store. How could you just pick one? I loved how Mac was taking one for the team, and finally doing what men have been doing for years. This book was amazing and I give it 5 stars.

** Due to all the sexiness, this book should not be read unless you have a stockpile full of batteries. You will defiantly need a quick release of temporary bliss after reading this book!

~ Excerpt ~
The dress I had been wearing had not allowed panties, so my lower body was exposed, leaving me standing before him in only my corset and black stilettos. The way he looked at me scorched my skin and left me breathless. Hearing his breath hitch as the last inch of my body was shown to him just spurred me on. I pulled my hands up off the door, forgetting his command to leave them there, and wrapped my arms around his shoulders, urging him closer to me. Moving in, his mouth found my neck while his hand trailed down the side of my body, caressing my hip before moving inward, his fingers between my parted legs.
“Oh, baby doll, you’re so wet for me. Such a shame that you disobeyed,” he said dangerously. “My hand is going to warm your ass until you’re begging me to be inside you.”
Not leaving me anytime to absorb what he’d just promised to do to me, he grabbed my hand, leading me over to a black leather one-seater chair and sitting down, leaving me standing naked in front of him, between his open legs. I admired the large bulge straining against his dark grey pants, unconsciously licking my lips at the sight. The ache between my legs intensified, and I remember thinking that I would die if he wasn’t inside me soon. Clearing his throat, my eyes snapped back to his face. He flashed a knowing grin back at me.
“Now would be the time to change your mind, Mac. Otherwise, in less than thirty seconds I’m going to have your bare ass lying across my lap, and my hand stinging from the hard spanking I intend to give you,” he stated with a quirked brow, like he was laying down the gauntlet for me.
