One day, eighteen-year-old Bliss Allan finds her mother dead on the floor, and her entire world turns upside down. She doesn't have her brother or her father there to support her, only her best friend Caitlyn and her family. Bliss has a special well-guarded gift but doesn't consider herself pretty. And, even though her future is all planned, she has never had a boyfriend. However, when Caitlyn's brother, Conner, returns home from Afghanistan, he and Bliss share a passionate kiss. They start having feelings for each other, but life and their careers get in their way, also Connor's past. Will Conner be able to prove to Bliss how much he cares for her? Find out in Saving Bliss by Zanne Sweeney, one of the most riveting and unexpected romantic suspense novels you'll read this year.
I must warn every reader who thinks of reading Saving Bliss by Zanne Sweeney. Be sure to read it when you're not so busy or when you don't have to get up early in the morning! Once you start reading this novel, you will find it hard to put it down. I was not expecting the intensity of this book. Saving Bliss contains plenty of suspense, threats, passion, major twists, and peril. What is particularly striking about this standalone, fast-paced romantic thriller is that it feels real. It focuses on breathtaking action and the characters' insecurities, inner turmoil, and also courage. Zanne Sweeney does a great job combining romance with suspense. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories where the protagonists choose to follow their hearts no matter what.
