Something Tragic by Jessica Yeh

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆★ There are some books that hold you in a thrall of emotions that they create long after you’ve finished them. You have emotions...

Bliss By Fiona Zedde


Bliss Sinclair is leading a regular life. Working in the accounts department of a publishing house, dating a guy she likes. A chance meeting with Regina, one of their authors, sends Sinclair’s life into a tailspin. Regina aggressively comes on to Sinclair and barely three days later, Sinclair finds herself breaking off from her boyfriend. Regina introduces Sinclair to all sorts of sexual experiences and a month later, calmly announces that their time together is over. To get over her heartbreak, Sinclair accepts her father’s oft-extended invite to visit him in Jamaica for a month. In Jamaica, Sinclair meets her step-mom – twenty-two year old Nikki, a twenty-five year old sister, Lydia and Lydia’s darkly wicked, seductive girlfriend Hunter. Hunter and Sinclair end up together soon.

The author writes about the lushness and beauty of Jamaica with love even while exposing the poverty and crime (especially against lesbians) with honesty. The sex scenes are many and highly descriptive. There is quite a bit of drama thrown in. However, for all these elements, the emotions do not reach the reader. At the end of the book, we actually like Nikki and Lydia more than any other character in the book. The conversations between Sinclair and Hunter at the start of their acquaintanceship sound unbelievable. Somewhere around the middle of their romance, Hunter seems just too cocky.

All in all, it is an average read.
