Book Description

2014 Indie Romance Convention Best Humor Romance Book

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn't want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't).



That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.



They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.



Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.



Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she's willing to give, she falters.



What do you do when something that you've known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?



If you're Mac, you run and hide.



But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great banter, sexy fun read September 4, 2013
By Sara
Format:Kindle Edition
The story starts off dark and sad. Makenna aka Mac, was in a bad relationship with her high school boyfriend. She's finally had enough and gets the hell out

4 years later........
This lucky girl has 3 men in her penis harem!!!

Theres Noah, a resident doctor at the hospital she works at. She's a nurse.
There's Sean, an older gentleman who she gets the Dom treatment from
And rounding out the harem is Zander, the flirtatious male stripper.
All know about each other. And all know Mac is a huge commitment phobe

The book is about Mac and promises she made to herself. 1) never let a man dictate her life. 2) never again let love lead her astray.

Well, she lets Sean dictate in the bedroom but she's ok with that. It's rule#2 that's she holds onto with a vice grip.
After work, on the train ride home she meets guy#4 delicious Daniel. Oh, sexy man in a suite that's also an investment banker with a dirty mouth! Mac can go toe to toe with him. Their banter was so freaking cute and funny. Mac is the kinda girl you want to be friends with. Her bff Kate is equally as funny and dirty. She gives Mac a challenge. 3 date rule, no sex.....

So they make it through the 3 dates and what do you know!! Feelings are getting involved and the sex is HOT, but Mac the stubborn bitch is either freaking out or running away. Daniel is a great guy. There's nothing you won't like about him. You get a small taste of the other 3 men in the harem but they don't have a strong presence in the book. Once Daniel entered the story, it's a game of cat and mouse that was fun to read. Mac had some serious shit to work through and poor Daniel had so much passion for her, he put up with a lot of her crap. This was a fun, cute, quick read with some great banter. The next book is her bff Kate's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superman... September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW!!! The disclaimer for this book was spot on. That is the only reason I bought this book before reading any reviews or even reading a sample like I normally do. Superman aka Daniel is every woman's super hero. I loved how he was and is with Mac. He took his time with her and even sensed before she told him that she is the commitment phobia type. He learned on his own how to handle her freak outs and what she needed from him. He gave her what Sean, Noah, and Zander gave her and more. All she needed to learn was to open her heart and let him be what she needed. That is what I loved about this book. I normally am not one for a lot of inner head monologue but with Mac it was necessary. Especially if you want to fully understand where she is coming from. This book definitely has a lot of sex in it and the sexual tension that Superman and Mac experienced in the first few dates was beyond words. I just wanted her to lose her bet with Kate and get it on with the man of steel. Then again it did lead to an amazing scene later so I am thankful for that.

This book is definitely a must read book. I can't wait to see what happens later with them. I do want to read more about Kate and Zander though. I really like him and see where that goes since there is something there but not wanting to admit yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.75--deliciously daniel--stars! September 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4.75--deliciously daniel--stars!

To be totally up front I was given a sample of Temporary Bliss months ago and I loved the chapter and a half that I read and begged B.J. Harvey for more! When I finally got the opportunity to read the entire book I was completely hooked!

Makenna is my girl! She is an awesome character who has suffered and is trying to pick up the pieces. I don't know but I love a strong female character. She keeps her heart safe and protected but she isn't afraid to have a little fun. All that stops one day when she meets Daniel and he turns her whole world upside down.

Daniel is just yummy! Really!! He connects with Makenna and takes her for what she is and allows her to try and figure her feelings out on her own. He's no pushover though. He doesn't take her shit and that is just what she needs. But just how long will he wait and how patient will he be with Makenna? Will she be able to see what is standing in front of her face? Or will she let the hot delicious Daniel slip through her fingers? Is there just too much baggage from her past that she can't get past? These questions just about made me scream but you won't be left hanging--they all get answered. But will you be happy with the result?

I must tell you I had some sleepless nights with this book and some moments where the iPad almost was flung across the room. BJ does a excellent job with sucking you into the story and then driving you crazy. Pick this book up you won't be disappointed. You will swoon over Daniel--trust me! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars The book that tore me in two.... October 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3 'run away' Kisses

I dunno if a book has ever split me in half as much as this book has. There was so much I reeeeally liked about it and then so much that drove me insane. I swooned and then got mad, laughed and then rolled my eyes, felt all these emotions and then was like wtf?!? I dunno what to think...I'm so frustrated!

Makenna Lewis...Mac...oh there is so much to love about Mac and yet so much that drove me up the wall. Four years ago she changed herself and her life for a guy. And four years ago she made a vow - never again. Like I said there is a lot I love about Mac - she's a free spirit, she's feisty and fiery and got a great personality and outlook on life. I love that she is sexually free and does what she wants and what feels right - guys have been doing it for years, so I love it when a woman finally does it. And high five on the not one...not two...but three penis's to choose from! Variety is the spice of life! I also loved her independence. That's a hard characteristic to find in a heroine. But there were other things that I didn't like...which I will get to in a minute.

`Walking away from this life, I make a vow to myself; never again will my life be dictated by a man, and never again will I let love lead me atray.'

Daniel Winters - of all the L trains in Chicago you had to end up on Makenna's. All it took were some caramel eyes and a good deep orgasm educing laugh to have Mac forgetting that damn vow...or at least questioning it! Which is a huge step if you ask me. I think it's his super powers she always talks about. Daniel is pretty damn perfect. He's patient, he's kind, he's got a successful job, he's smoking hot, he's a gentleman, he's romantic...are you waiting for anything bad? Cause it's not coming...I promise you.
