Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug used against women with one single purpose in mind ….
Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.
Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick’s ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.
When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

What in the hell did I just read?!?!   It’s darkish, twisted, very suspenseful and extremely intriguing!!
J.C. does a fantastic job of getting you right into the thick of things and not holding back.  Julianna is thrown into a world she could only imagine her in mind could exist.  And unfortunately, she is not given any chances to think freely or even make her own choices.
Travis and Nick – these two are some sick, twisted and ruthless assholes.  Well mostly Nick – he is a true asshole, through and through.  Travis will poke holes in your chest but will have hating and liking at the same time.
J.C. does a fantastic job of weaving a very deceitful and heart-wrench web of twists, lies and half-truths.  I have some many unanswered questions – none that have really been answered.  My interests just become more and more piqued as the story continues.
I feel the fight and determination on Julianna as she goes through this whole new journey.  I feel her inner battle and the fight raging within her.  I sense the struggle that Travis is feeling, but once his walls go up, he becomes just as crude as Nick.
J.C.’s writing will pull into the story and never let you go.  I read this book in one day.  I had to know what was going to happen and where this story was going to go.  The characters are written extremely well – so well, you will immediately have distinct feelings for each of them.  And I really love the added whit and humor thrown in to keep things from getting too dark for some readers – and it’s not corny!
“But what they have failed to realize is I am Juilanna Oakley, and I have not yet begun to fight.”
I loved how it ended.  Yes, it’s a cliffhanger but it’s one that has you wanting to jump right into the next book and seeing what Julianna has up her sleeve!
Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it’s Nick’s game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it’s a losing game. 
Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it’s far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands…
As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life.
 It’s opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills.
While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul.
It’s every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.

Blyssful Lies picks right up where Blyss ended and continues on the roller coaster ride of lifetime.
Julianna (Jules) is still trying to cope with her situation and figuring out ways to deceive and fight through her captivity.  She was able to handle her situation when she had Travis watching over her and training her.  But now she has to deal with Nick and she has already seen the brutal side of him when she first arrived.
Just when Jules thinks things could not get any worse, she awake to be taken by Travis and they are on the run.  However, things get very tricky and even more intense while in hiding from Nick. Travis does everything in his power to prove to Julianna that she can trust him and he does have her best interest at heart.  And just when things seem to be going in the right direction, shit hits the fan and everything starts spinning out of control.
We get to learn more about Nick and Travis in this book.  Even though there are some suspenseful scenes, this book felt more intimate than the first.  We see how obsessed Nick really is with Jules.  The ends he will go to to make her, his.  He comes across as very disturbed and even sadistic with his wanton need to claim her.  Travis is conflicted over his feelings for Jules.  He knows that after everything he has put her through, he is not the man she should ever want to be with.  But damn if he can’t help how he feels about her and he is determined to let her know that his feelings are real.
I love reading this story from all 3 characters POV’s.  It gives you a much better insight as to what they are feeling as everything is happening and gives the book more depth.  As always, J.C. has a way with words.  The pace of the book was perfect and everything read flawlessly.  Readers are left breathless and eager to see what happens next in this series.
This is Julianna’s story. She lived a normal life until she was about to turn twenty-one, and then all hell broke loose. Years of diabolical scheming unraveling at the seams, unleashing torrents of lies and deceit. The whirlwind of chaos and heartbreak will forever change the game.
Her chosen fate is one of stellar proportions, and she struggles to keep sane, trying to hold it together every step of the way. As the matrix of her concealed past unfolds to deliver the final blow, rationality and sanity begin to take on a definition and meaning of its own.
Nick thinks he’s the night in shining armor while Travis believes he will be enough to save her from herself, but does she even want to be saved?
Both men want her. Both men love her, and both men want to claim her, keeping her for themselves. But, as usual, Julianna has other plans.
review
I fell in love with this series from the very first book and each book has only gotten better.
Blysfully Undone is the conclusion, in the Blyss trilogy and definitely delivered a fantastic ending.  It starts with the adrenaline-pumped scene with Travis and Jules’s lives in hanging in the air.  And from there, things only take off.  There isn’t one time during this whole book (series honestly) that I wasn’t eagerly awaiting what was going to happen next.  And every time I speculated what might happen, I was wrong in some way.
J.C. does a sensational job of keeping the book flowing perfectly and never once going off track or confusing the reader as to what is going on.  I love how everything was intricately woven together and completely blows the reader away.  This book was written flawlessly and was extremely gripping.  It had all the angst, tension, suspense, love, passion, hatred, , hurt –  you get my point – it had everything!
The banter between all the characters, both main and secondary, really added to the whole plot.  These characters were so real to me and I loved that I felt every emotion  they went through.  As you are reading, everything so crystal clear to you, it’s like everything is being played out before you in a movie.
The book ended beautifully.  Some people may have want a different ending , but I feel that J.C. gave the ending this while story deserved. If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend that you do.  You won’t regret it.
This series is one you do not want to miss out on.
