NEW STAND-ALONE NOVEL
by USA Today Bestselling Author, Chelle Bliss
Released on January 26th – LIVE
EVERYTHING CHANGED IN AN INSTANT.
I thought I knew what was important, but one phone call sent my life into a tailspin.
Alone and afraid, I cling to the one man I shouldn’t.
I was warned about him and told to stay away. “He’s dangerous,” they said.
But the man who could hurt me the most, gave me the greatest comfort.
“He’s not who they think,” I told myself.
But just like an illusion, things are never what they seem.
“I want to see what is underneath. Being with a man for the first time is like unwrapping a Christmas present. I want to know what my gift is, and I hope it isn’t like opening a box of socks.”
“I have no family. Who will visit my grave or attend my funeral? I’d leave nothing behind. Just a fabulous shoe collection my friends would ravage before my body was even cold, let alone six feet under.”
“Time is the most precious thing we have. We blindly go through our days as if they’re in infinite supply. Each year, time moves faster, evaporating before our eyes, and we don’t even realize it. The only time we pay attention to time is when we’re told ours is running out.”
Chelle Bliss had my lower lip trembling, my cold heart beating at hard rhythms at various times – and for vastly different reasons – and my eyes periodically experienced a strange and unfamiliar wet and burning sensation as I read her latest work of art. Aptly titled Enshrine, the feels in this book were sneaky. Enshrine is a moving and emotive read, and in my opinion, Chelle Bliss at her best. One chapter had me snorting and smirking then ended with a sob-fest for the sweetest of reasons.
The story flows smoothly and the writing is pure Bliss with clever humor, delectable steamy goodness, intriguing secrets, insightful observations, and emotional intensity. The main character, Callie, finds herself a midst an ironic life struggle. Callie’s inner battle was to be as hard-fought as her physical complications while she endeavored to overcome her pesky personal issues to eclipse vanity, stubbornness, and paralyzing fear. I found the canny Chapter Titles to be nothing short of ingenious as she followed the formal stages of grief. More irony, she finds safety and solace in the most unlikely of places. I enjoy irony as much as I adore Chelle Bliss, and I loves me some Chelle Bliss!
