Add to Goodreads:
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?
*ARC provided by author for an honest review*

Three men.

One woman.

The perfect arrangement.

Each guy meets a different need. They all know about each other and have no problems with the set-up. Win-win for all involved right?

Well, what happens when the woman meets one man who is able to satisfy all her needs? Does she make him number four and continue as things were? Or does the need for the others disappear now that she has met "the one"?

This is the situation Mac finds herself in after meeting Daniel. He is everything she could have wished for all in one sexy package. But the problem is, she made a promise to herself years ago to never again allow her heart to get involved. She suffered through pure hell in her last relationship and she is unwilling to go there again. Will Daniel convince her that he is worth taking a chance on? 

I really loved this book! It was a nice change to have a woman feel empowered enough to own her sexuality and not be afraid to go after what she wants. And I loved Mac's personality! She was so quirky and some of the stuff that came out of her mouth was down right hilarious. This is one of those books that you just instantly love not only the storyline but all the characters in it as well. 

If you are looking for a book that has a little bit of everything from humor to angst, Temporary Bliss is just what you are looking for. I can not wait for Kate's story in True Bliss! 

“What did Zander give you? If Sean gave you dominance, and Noah was to pass the time, what about Zander. What need did he fulfill?” he asks deadpan.

“Why are you asking me this, Daniel? I thought we were past all this?”

“We are. We were.  I just need to know.”


“So I can prove to you that I can be everything you need and more. So that you can realize how much I want you in every way possible. So that you can stop freaking out and walking on egg shells around me because you’re scared I’m going to leave.”

“Daniel, I…” I see him tighten his grip on the steering wheel, and I realize that this is not the time for questions. This is the time for answers; to give Daniel the answers. To help him understand why I do what I do, or rather, why I did what I did in the past.

“Daniel, I thought we’d talked about this? Do we need to talk about it all over again?”

“I don’t know,” he answers stoically.

Now that’s got my back up. “Fine, you want to know, I’ll tell you!”

“No…. NO. I don’t want to know, but it’s always there, Mac. Just how you didn’t like Nikki touching me tonight, I can’t stand the thought of another man, or men, touching you, being inside you. Fuck, it’s driving me insane.”

I’m 31 years old and live in New Zealand, the most beautiful country in the world.
I love reading, and started writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. Before that I’d written business and website articles professionally but never fiction. I love the indie community, authors, bloggers and readers alike and have met so many awesome people that I now call dear friends.
I’m a huge music lover as well. I REALLY love music. If there isn't music playing, something is wrong. And it’s a wide range of music too, I might surprise you with my eclectic tastes.
I'm also a wife, mother of two gorgeous girls and currently working for myself as well as studying full time to become an accountant of all things. I also have a Bachelor of Communications.

My author inspirations are: Michelle Leighton, Barbara Elsborg and Kristen Ashley.
