Add to Goodreads:



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?



Author Bio: 


I’m 31 years old and live in New Zealand, the most beautiful country in the world.

I love reading, and started writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. Before that I’d written business and website articles professionally but never fiction. I love the indie community, authors, bloggers and readers alike and have met so many awesome people that I now call dear friends.

I’m a huge music lover as well. I REALLY love music. If there isn't music playing, something is wrong. And it’s a wide range of music too, I might surprise you with my eclectic tastes.

I'm also a wife, mother of two gorgeous girls and currently working for myself as well as studying full time to become an accountant of all things. I also have a Bachelor of Communications.

My author inspirations are: Michelle Leighton, Barbara Elsborg and Kristen Ashley.

“Kate, it’s Mac. I need a ticket home, today,” I spit out, my voice still shaky from spending the last hour crying.

“About freaking time, babe. Pack your stuff, go to the airport, and I’ll see you soon.”


“Yeah, babe?”

“I love you.”

“I love you too, Mac. I’m so glad you’re coming home. Everything is going to be okay.”

I grab whatever I can and stuff it into the two suitcases I have in the closet. I check that I’ve got only what I need, then carry the bags to the front door. I take my key off my key ring and place it on the kitchen counter. I take one last look around the empty room that has been my home for the past six months. Scratch that, I can’t even say it’s been a home. A home is full of love, and warmth, and for the past five months it’s been full of lies, deceit and if I’m going to be honest, fear.

“Goodbye, Beau Gregory,” I whisper as I click the lock and pull the door closed behind me.

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 astray.

But as I’ll soon find out not four years later, vows are made to be broken. 

My Review
B.J. Harvey: *Disclaimer - There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super-hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*

I think that sets the scene perfectly for this book….
The ghosts of Mackenna Lewis’ past are still shaping her future and this leaves her with real commitment issues. She has been emotionally and physically abused by her high school sweetheart and it took guts for her to run away from him.

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 astray.’ Mac

This leaves her wanting nothing to do with a real relationship she just wants friends with benefits.  And boy oh boy does she have her pick of those.

Mac leaves Beau and heads home to her best friend Kate, these too are sassy ladies and the dialogue had me openly snickering along to myself, and their friendship is 100% unwavering in their support and love for each other.  True best friends

‘‘That is the beauty of having a best friend. They’ll walk over hot coals with you; they’ll tell you when you’re being dumb, and they bail you out of trouble, unless they’re sitting right beside you in the cell. ’ – Mac

So now she’s home Mac has thrown herself in to her work and her friends with benefits relationships with three seriously hot guys, did I mention, seriously hot guys, Noah, Sean & Zander.  Mac meets each of them regularly for hot, steamy encounters and quite frankly if Doctor Noah kept dragging me in to the on call room for sex, you’d find me loitering by this room all day long!

Each man has his own unique talent and none of them want a long term relationship which suits Mac just fine:

Dr Noah a.k.a The Walking Dildo - No word of a lie this man’s cock should be immortalized in gold….

Sean a.k.a. The Dom - ‘Holy shit! I could be in a dark room, blindfolded and bound, and climax from his voice along.’ – Mac

Zander  The Stripper – he’s the master of flirtation and seduction

And then she meets Daniel, Delicious Daniel, Superman and well holy shit this man is something else, whatever I tell you will not do him justice, just trust me on this.

“He flashes me his megawatt smile again, and I literally melt in front of him.  Clean up, aisle three” Mac

“Holy shit, Mac! Why don’t you just hump his leg already? Damn, I must need some sleep, or some rabbit relief, or something. Mac

And maybe all that no-strings sex is no longer all it’s cracked up to be…

oh God. What if I’ve broken my clitoris from overuse? Misuse? Self –abuse?  Mac’s inner voice is quite frankly hysterical.

The text messages between Mac and Daniel are sexy & dirty:

Delicious Daniel: *bangs head against wall* Damn, Mac I am going to need a cold shower.  Now, naughty girl, how about you go and have a cold shower too and I’ll see you in a couple of
hours ;-)

Mac: *pouts* okay, no fun

Like I said when these two meet its hot stuff, instant attraction and maybe more, but as Mac battles with her feelings she allows past demons to dominate her decisions and quite honestly she really started to frustrate the hell out of me.  Daniel is adorable and patient but even he can only put up with so much.

 “Tell me you feel this, gorgeous? Tell me I’m not dreaming this…” -Daniel
“I’m feeling it, and it’s scaring the shit out of me…”Mac

 “God, I want to hate you for doing this to us, but I can’t,” he whispers, kissing my forehead one last time before stepping back. “I could never hate you, Mac. That’s why this fucking hurts so much.” - Daniel

Temporary Bliss is a make your day kind of read,  once I started it was simply impossible to put it down, I had to spend the day with Mac & those men in her life, I needed to know what was going to happen.  This is not a read in two sittings kind of book.  I simply had to finish it.   This book cuddled up to me on the sofa, wrapped its arms around me, laughed with me, cried with me and stayed with me.

Thank you BJ Harvey the epilogue was perfect and I can’t wait for more.
