Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | A Taste of Bliss by Adrian R. Hale

All Bliss Kaufman wanted was a sandwich and a nap after a grueling day beautifying this week’s bridal party. So when a bartender with a panty-melting grin offers her dinner and a ride on his motorcycle, Bliss swerves from her plans for one unexpected night with Talan McGregor. Just one. It was never supposed to go further. But once isn’t enough for Talan who returns demanding more--and his timing couldn’t be worse.

A life-changing diagnosis forces Bliss to abandon her carefully crafted plans. Even though she can make anyone beautiful with enough makeup and hair product, she can’t fix everything with her 50-pound bag of beauty tricks. Bliss is starting to think she might need Talan after all, but letting him in means cracking open her heart and embracing a life without a safety net.

After all, love is life’s greatest complication, and might just be worth the risk.

*Due to sexual content and graphic language this book is intended for readers 18+*

Purchase Link:

"I want all of you, Bliss. Body. Heart. Soul. I don't want to be the guy you f**k when you need an escape from reality. I want to be the guy you come to because this feels like home."

Bliss met Talan in the most unfortunate circumstance of her life. It was like, it wasn’t the right time to fall in love with so much on her plate – and yet everything just went according to what fate decided. It wasn’t easy for the both of them, but they made it worked. Talan was very understanding and supportive, he has a lot on his sleeves, well, including secrets, and he always has some surprise. Irony is, Bliss doesn’t like secrets.

You can’t help but love the both of them. Bliss being courageous and risking everything for her dreams. And let’s not forget, she’s a great daughter as well. Nevertheless, she still makes time with Talan, he never demands anyway.

More than just a romantic tale with all those steamy scenes, this book caught my heart because of the relationship Bliss had with her mother, and the effort she was making for her. It was somehow hard for her to do it, but because her mother wanted it, she tries her best in making her mom’s wishes come true.

It’s a story about love, about beginnings and endings, about doing things before it’s too late. It’s a story about letting go, even if it’s painful. It’s about saying goodbye.

Love, sometimes surprises. We may not expect it, it may not come in the best of times in our lives, but when it’s true – it’s going to stay, and the risk would always be worth it.


Adrian R. Hale loves sugar and spice and everything nice--so of course she loves a good happy ending, in fiction and otherwise.

When she’s not writing, she is making people beautiful as a hair and makeup artist, or trying to run off her overconsumption of sugar. A born and raised California girl, she now resides in Austin, TX with her husband and fur babies.

Playing with her imaginary friends is as common to her now as it was when she was a child; the only difference is now she lets other people know about them through her writing. She would love to hear from you at adrianrhale@gmail.com or Facebook.com/adrianrhaleauthor.
