Lexie is a young woman graduating with a degree in business. She has her future planned out and is awaiting her new job in the corporate world. When she goes to a concert with her sister and best friend, she didn't realize the man she would meet would change her future, and her priorities. Van is the lead singer of a rock band, on tour for the next several months. Surrounded by groupies fighting for his attention, he didn't know the woman entering back stage would soon change his life so dramatically, or so quickly. Blissful Tragedy by Amy L. Gale is a love story about two people from different worlds, and life plans, suddenly coming together and fighting against the odds. Groupies, family, friends, and ex- boyfriends all try their best to come in between this couple, leaving the reader hoping these lovers will make it.
Gale is an interesting writer and gets to the point quickly and efficiently. Blissful Tragedy is easy to read and follow, with attention grabber's on every page. This book is filled with love, hate, and tantalizing sex scenes. It is written in a way that there are very few descriptions of the characters, making it hard to fully form a mental image of the story. The speed of the story and how quickly everything progresses causes the reader to feel as if they are in a rush. With a little more description, and time to connect to the characters, this book could easily become a favorite and even have potential to become a series. The book is good for a reader that wants something simple and easy to pick up and put down without getting lost.
If you want to read a book about unexpected love, jealousy, and fighting for what you want, then you should check this book out. The simplicity of the vanilla sex scenes, speed of the story, and the lack of descriptive writing can leave the reader wanting more. This is Gale's first book and she does indeed deserve to be applauded for a great start. Her talent is seen in her work, as well as her impatience. A little more time spent on the basics and her next book could shine.
