Adrian R. Hale loves sugar and spice and everything nice--so of course she loves a good happy ending, in fiction and otherwise. When she’s not writing, she is making people beautiful as a hair and makeup artist, or trying to run off her overconsumption of sugar. A born and raised California girl, she now resides in Austin, TX with her husband and fur babies. Playing with her imaginary friends is as common to her now as it was when she was a child; the only difference is now she lets other people know about them through her writing. She would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.Facebook.com/adrianrhaleauthor.

All Bliss Kaufman wanted was a sandwich and a nap after a grueling day beautifying this week’s bridal party. So when a bartender with a panty-melting grin offers her dinner and a ride on his motorcycle, Bliss swerves from her plans for one unexpected night with Talan McGregor. Just one. It was never supposed to go further. But once isn’t enough for Talan who returns demanding more--and his timing couldn’t be worse.
A life-changing diagnosis forces Bliss to abandon her carefully crafted plans. Even though she can make anyone beautiful with enough makeup and hair product, she can’t fix everything with her 50-pound bag of beauty tricks. Bliss is starting to think she might need Talan after all, but letting him in means cracking open her heart and embracing a life without a safety net.
After all, love is life’s greatest complication and might just be worth the risk.

A Taste of Bliss is a great book! I quickly found myself totally draw into this book and unable to put it down. The characters in this book were well thought out and developed. Usually I am not a fan of the “insta-attraction” but the author did a wonderful job making this attraction feel realistic. The main characters, Bliss and Talan, are great together! I like each of them separately but even more as a couple. On top of the story of their relationship struggles and obstacles, Bliss is hit with devastating news that changes her life. The combination of the devastating news and the new relationship made for a very emotional read. I found myself being excited and in tears within minutes of each other. I never knew which emotion was going to push through next! There were two separate storylines going on in this book and the author intertwined them flawlessly. I definitely recommend this book!
4 star The story has laughs, betrayal, secrets, grief, and heartbreak. You will have a roller-coaster of emotions with this story. Please be prepared with the tissues. This is Talan and Bliss’s story. Bliss is a makeup artist who meets Talan when he is bartending. They connect but Bliss gets some life-changing news and thinks she should give up Talan and deal with her life issues. Talan is having no of it. He wants to help Bliss however he can. She finally lets him in only to be disappointed. She breaks it off but Talan demands an explanation. After secrets are revealed and lives are changed can these two keep it together to get the ending they wanted? Can they overcome the secrets and exactly what they reveal about each of them? Can they trust in the love they feel for each other? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book, this series and this author.
Oooooooooooookay ... brace yourselves for a whole lotta lovin'! I really truly loved this story. It has all the feels and for god's sake I UGLY CRIED... O M G I hate spoilers soooooooo I don't have a TON to say, but I will say I loved it, you will love it. Hale's writing is so good. I literally had a film going in my head the entire time I read this. The flow is awesome and the reading totally flew by for me. I read this in a day and a half ... not even a weekend, just a Sunday and a regular back to work Monday for me. Hale's characters have everything, and they seem like people you could physically meet. I want to be Bliss's friend in real life. Speaking of friends - YOU WILL LOVE WILLA! I absolutely and totally loved her - she is funny and thoughtful and caring and just wow, loved her. We all love an amazing male lead and Hale's Talan DOES NOT disappoint! He is amazing. He is flawed and real and everything we love in a male lead. He surprised me throughout the story and I think you will fall in love with him. He is so well written, just like the other characters. I can't wait to read more from Hale. I am waiting for her next release. LOVED IT You need to buy it right now!
