Giveaway/Review: Finding Bliss by Dina Silver

Tour Dates: July 22-27th
Title: Finding Bliss
Author:  Dina Silver
Release date: July 16, 2013
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Women’s Fiction


Book Description:
Chloe Carlyle has always longed for the perfect family.

Growing up with an alcoholic single mother, she 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.

This book ended how this book should have begun. I liked this book, but I wasn't in love with it. I liked Chloe as a character to a certain point. She was a hard worker, ambitious, and caring. I never really liked Tyler during any time of this book. He was okay in the beginning but eh, then of course he steadily became totally unlikable. I like how she stood strong at the end, and made the right decision. This book was entertaining. I kind of saw what was coming, so when the major conflict happened I really wasn't shocked. If you like emotional real life stories, take a look at this one.

Rating: 3 out of 5
