CIA operative John Bishop arrived in Bliss, Colorado seeking a respite from the high stakes game of blood and lies that sent him to the worst corners of the world. A week playing the role of vacationing professor Henry Flanders would recharge his batteries, especially if he found a submissive plaything to occupy his time.

Nell Finn has spent her life focused on helping others, but when she meets the tall and mysterious Henry Flanders, she can’t stop imagining what he might do for her. When Nell and her mother are threatened, Henry comes to her offering his protection and comfort.

But as the threats escalate out of control, Henry discovers that the beautiful and innocent Nell is much more than a plaything. Can he save the woman he loves without exposing the secrets that would drive her away?


My Thoughts Green swirls

Once Upon A Time In Bliss is book #8 in the Nights In Bliss, Colorado series by Sophie Oak.

I was so happy to get to hear the background behind a couple of very lovable characters that’s been in all of the books so far.  Henry & Nell.  All along they would be in the books as background characters and {… I hate to call them background characters because they are more than that.  They’re wonderful protective friends of everyone around them…} always front and centre lending support. It was really nice to get a history of Nell and the elusive Henry.

I’m still a little confused with his past, but it’s really irrelevant. Either way it was made very clear that he has a very shady and dangerous background for someone who is so sweet and moral as Henry Flanders. He’s lethal and faithful and that makes for a very interesting combination.  I adore his character! Especially now that I know more of his history. He’s even more lovable.

Nell on the other hand sort of gets on my nerves but in a good way if that makes any sense. At least now I have a better understanding of her character and why she protests absolutely EVERYTHING. Regardless of all the annoying protests, she’s a pretty phenomenal human being and has a heart as big as all outdoors. She really is an incredible friend to have.

The two of them together is heart stopping. I love reading about them as a couple.

Sophie Oak nailed it once again. It was a bit weird to go back to the beginning half way through a series, but I totally get it. Their story needed to be told and it came at the right time because of an upcoming book that has characters from this book.  Henry’s history is coming back to bite him in the ass and Seth is coming back with his helpful skills to help out.  Can’t wait for that to unfold!

In A Nutshell

Loved it!  Can’t wait for more!  Everyone should be reading this series! It’s gripping, easy to read with the wonder flow of words, funny as hell with the sarcastic humour and heart meltingly delicious!
