What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…until someone ends up married.
Michael Shawcross is living the dream, opening up for his idols, Oblivion, on his band Warning Sign’s first tour. Until an overzealous fan goes too far and his hard-partying ways catch up to him in the form of an ultimatum from his manager, Lila Crandall.
Clean up your image—or else.
Single mom Chloe Adams is in Vegas for a rare girls’ night out. She wasn’t ever supposed to be attracted to another rockstar. In fact, she’s in rockstar rehab, and the cure for her addiction definitely isn’t a sexy, smart-assed guitarist with wicked fingers.
She never expects to accidentally end up his wife. Or to have her new husband suddenly decide that she’s the solution to all his problems. And surprise…he’s happy to show his appreciation in a number of interesting, inventive ways.
Pretending their marriage is real might just be the hottest proposition she’s ever been given.
But what happens when a lie becomes the truth?
REVIEW: BEDDED BLISS is the first installment in the contemporary, adult, erotic, romance rock series FOUND IN OBLIVION co-authored by Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott. FOUND IN OBLIVION is a spin off from their LOST IN OBLIVION series and several characters from LIB and the authors’ HAMMERED series cross over and make cameo appearances for familiarity. This is lead guitarist for the upcoming rock band Warning Sign Michael Shawcross, and single mom/bartender Chloe Adams’s story line. Michael and Chloe were first introduced in Quinn and Elliott’s LOST IN OBLIVION series. You do not have to have read the previous series to understand or follow the spin off but for back story and enjoyment I recommend reading the authors LOST IN OBLIVION series as well.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Chloe and Michael) BEDDED BLISS focuses on the relationship between single mom Chloe Adams and guitarist Michael Shawcross. Following a drunken weekend in Vegas where Chloe and Michael wake up to find themselves married to one another with no recollection or memory of what has happened, our heroine runs home only to discover that her private life is now the stuff of tabloid fodder and paparazzi nightmares. What ensues are Michael’s attempts to persuade his new wife that remaining together will be better for everyone concerned, and Chloe’s struggle to regain control of her life.
Chloe is a single mother who was once engaged to Oblivion’s former drummer Snake (William)-a man whose demons destroyed his life when he died following a tempestuous relationship with his band and eventual drug over dose leaving a pregnant and struggling Chloe on her own. Nick Crandall, guitarist for Oblivion and one time best friend of Snake, took Chloe under his wing and offered up financial support for his best friend’s girl. Snake’s son Axl is close to two years old, and Chloe’s first girls weekend in Vegas ends in a marriage to a man she knows very little about.
Michael Shawcross is the step-son of Oblivion’s band manager Lila Shawcross, and a great guitarist in his own right. Now a member of the upcoming rock band Warning Sign, Michael has a colorful history with the ladies including a bad boy reputation and an ongoing affair with a senator’s fiancé. Waking up to a new wife, and a woman that calls to his heart, Michael is determined to make the best of the situation and offers up his home and his heart to Chloe and her son.
The attraction between Chloe and Michael is immediate but our couple has known of one another for a number of years through their mutual connection to the band Oblivion and Lila Shawcross. Michael is a man determined not to follow in his parent’s disastrous relationship history, and makes every effort to ensure that his marriage to Chloe is real and forever. Chloe’s life begins to implode when the paparazzi refuse to give her the benefit of the doubt, and the harassment destroys the life she began to build. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and erotic.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including several members of the rock bands Oblivion and Hammered, as well as the introduction of Warning Sign’s other musicians. There is a personality struggle within the band, and when their drummer Ryan Waters sprains his hand in a biking accident, Michael calls in a favor from his brother Malachi-a man who prefers to remain in the shadows and away from the dysfunction of the Shawcross family. We are introduced to Chloe’s friends, and sisters Jinx and Ivy Johnson, a couple of women whose own lives are turned upside down while partying in Vegas.
BEDDED BLISS is an enjoyable and fateful story with dynamic characters and a captivating romance. Quinn and Elliott vivid imaginations seamlessly blend three series together for an introductory tale that continues to look at the life and loves of an upcoming rock star. The premise is intoxicating; the characters are engaging and passionate; the romance is provocative and emotional. BEDDED BLISS is an intimate look behind the scenes, and into the life of Quinn and Elliot’s latest bad boy guitarist.

USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn likes music and men, so she figured why not write about both? When she’s not writing, she’s screaming at men’s college basketball games on TV, playing her music too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.
USA Today bestselling author Taryn Elliott is obsessed with rock stars, men, and her unending playlists–maximizing these things seemed like a very good idea. When she’s not writing, she’s losing hours to hot men on TV, and/or a graphic design project. Multitasking is her middle name.
They decided to combine forces and found that hey…this writing deal is even more awesome when you collaborate with your best friend.
And so Lost in Oblivion was born.
