Hometown Love: A Bliss Bundle: A Review ★★★


Amazon          Goodreads          Barnes and Noble

Book Description

There’s nothing quite like the comfort and serenity of returning home again, especially when combined with the sizzle and excitement of finding true love. This limited-edition contemporary romance boxed set from Entangled’s Bliss line features three fun and flirty small-town stories sure to make you laugh, sigh, and smile long after you’ve turned the last page.

Taste the Heat by Rachel Harris: Colby Robicheaux knows her brother’s best friend—delectable fire captain Jason Landry—is off-limits, and anyway, she’s only back home for a short time. Jason’s looking for someone to help him raise his preteen daughter, not a fling, but Colby’s all grown up and tempting as ever.

Playing at Love by Ophelia London: When Tess Johansson’s music program gets pitted against Jack Marshall’s football program in a battle for funding, she knows only one of them can win. Jack might be the summer love she never forgot, but her job means everything to her. Competing against the enemy was never quite this much fun.

Lucky Break by Kelley Vitollo: Sydney Williams might have come home to her small town of Shamrock Falls, but it’ll take more than that to rekindle a broken friendship with her childhood best friend, Kade Mitchell. When friendship turns to sparks turns to more, will Kade be able to convince his best friend to gamble on forever?


I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.

Today is the release date for Hometown Love: A Bliss Bundle.  I really enjoyed this bundle of romance books. I did enjoy the first two books more than the third which surprised me. I typically really love those stories that focus on friends falling in love. Lucky Break felt like there was just something missing....almost as if the repair to the broken friendship was glossed over. On an unrelated note to the story, I did highlight Vitollo's note to her husband in the dedication as it is ever so romantic: First, we grew up together; now we'll grow old together.  Sweet, right? 
Taste the Heat was surprisingly good. Lots of wit from Colby made it very enjoyable. Playing at Love was such a typical romance: man and woman who should not be able to get along, yet end up really connecting. Tess was refreshing as a romance heroine in that she was very down-to-earth and confident and powerful.  

This is a bargain (Kindle $0.99) in my opinion for a sweet summer romance read. Each of the stories in the bundle is the first story in a series by each author. In fact, the second book in Rachel Harris'  series is on sale today - you can see more on her Goodreads page

I gave this book: 

★ = I did not like it     ★ = It was okay     ★ = I liked it
