Publisher's Summary

Chloe Carlyle has always longed for the perfect family.
Growing up with an alcoholic single mother, Chloe 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.

Finding Bliss is an emotionally charged book!

My first thought was how realistic this story seemed to be.This is the second book I've read of Dina Silver and I've noticed that she focuses on real issues that people can relate to. The writer explores a variety of topics in this book such as alcoholism, mental illness, marriage, infertility issues, spousal cheating, etc. We are able to watch a woman try to overcome obstacles and learn to appreciate the ups & downs of her rollercoaster life. She deals with the good, bad, and the ugly. The story begins when Chloe is in her early twenties and she is preparing to go stay with the Reed family as their nanny for the summer. During the summer, she starts to fall for the Reed's eldest son Tyler who also happens to be the Notre Dame quarter back. In the beginning, you see how this normally responsible girl is still very naïve when it comes to Tyler Reed. Honestly, I never connecting with Chloe & Tyler's relationship through out the entire book. I did however feel more of a connection between Chloe & Cam. As you can tell, I'm more of a team Cam rather than team Tyler. You watch Chloe fall in love and endure what life throws her way. Regardless, I found this book refreshing and raw. There is a wide variety of characters in this book. Some you will adore and some you will want to throttle. You will experience happy moments and then heart wrenching moments. You experience love, hope and then pain, anger. This book ends with many questions left unanswered. I'm hopeful there is a sequel so I can finally know what happens next in Chloe's life. I highly recommend this gut wrenching book!

fantastic book, terrible ending.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. It was so detailed that i thought the ending was going to reveal the author as the main character. As the story unravels, you see the plot twists coming. thankfully, the main character isn't oblivious and makes all the assumptions I did as i was reading. I will say that the ending is abrupt and leaves me wanting more, but content with the stopping point.
