Publisher's Summary

Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. He easily checked off the first item on the list when he took over his grandfather's veterinary practice. Too bad he wasn't as lucky in love. 

Chaz Hamilton took a leap of faith when he decided to pursue a career in writing, but one best seller didn't mean he could quit his day job. All work and no play threatened to make Chaz a very dull man when the only romantic action he saw was in the pages of his manuscript. Too bad he couldn't write his own happily every after. 

Circumstances pushed the two men together, and one magical kiss beneath fireworks and stars changed everything. Kyle knew his luck had finally turned around and Chaz found a man far better than any book boyfriend ever written. There was just one problem. Chaz has kept a secret from Kyle that could ruin their chance at a beautiful life together. 

Kyle and Chaz learn that the best-laid plans often go awry, the heart has a mind of its own, and the greatest love is unscripted. Contains mature themes.

Great story with the perfect narrator

When I first picked up the Curl Up and Dye series the first thing I though was “Joel Leslie has to narrate these” he brings the full cast to life. I strongly recommend reading the Curl Up and Dye books before the Blissville ones. While they can be read/listened to as stand alones there’s a lot you miss. Especially Josh and Gabe’s epic romance.
Chaz and Dr Dimples were made for each other. The chemistry is crazy between these two. We get to learn a lot about both of their insecurities. There’s a nice little bonus at a the end with Josh and Gabe. Man do I love Savage and Sassy!!!!

It's okay...

Good love story, interesting characters with unique background. Chaz and Dr. Dimples' HEA was well deserved. It just didn't grip me like ANW's Zero Hour series. Maybe it's the whole hiding a secret thing, it gives me anxiety. But it's a great book to listen to.

Joel is a great narrator, I love his accents and his performance but I feel like he's not the narrator for this series. Maybe because I'm associating him with Josh and Gabe in Curl Up and Dye series so it feels off for me and the characters tend to blend in?

Still, great story, well-loved narrator, it's just not a 5 star for me.

Mostly a Winner

The Road to Blissville Srs appears to be the sequel to the Curl Up and Dye Srs by AN Walker. Except that the more books I read in CUAD, it became clear that things were happening with the secondary characters that should probably ALREADY have been read. Indeed, when I reached the Christmas Book in CUAD, it went PAST obvious to (let’s say) spoilers as to what had occurred with the other characters since a certain point in Jazz and Gabe’s life.

This wasn’t an issue in the sense that I purchased the full series of both series named, in both print and Audible, but I felt that maybe it would have been helpful to have a list of books in the order that they should be read. Theoretically they are all SA Bks, but they are much better read in order as a full Srs (like a season on tv) and perhaps there IS a list of the books in the order I should read them that I missed. I would highly recommend doing so (I imagine a Google search would pull this up.)

Obviously, I very much enjoy Aimee Nicole Walker’s style of writing or I wouldn’t own 26 print bks, not counting the Audible books. I generally give 5* reviews to almost every single book she writes. The storyline’s are intriguing, the characters are unique, the writing is excellent, the sex scenes are hot (boiling, combustible!!) so there had to be a reason I rated two of three ratings to 4, instead of 5.



SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT


Okay. You’ve been warned. I felt as if Chaz and Kyle had the same problem crop up again and again and again and again and I (personally) found it grating. After a certain point, Chaz’ reluctance to tell Kyle about his deception became irritating to the point where I lost much respect for Kyle for continuing to go after the man. Chaz was acting like a complete shit (again, just IMO) and I wish Kyle had decided that Chaz wasn’t worth this much trouble. And clearly Chaz’ character lost much in his “should I, I can’t do this...” repetitive thought process every time he saw the vet.

The thing is, Walker likes her characters to be soulmates or OTL such that you can’t give up on them bc, they are supposed to be “endgame”. With Gabe and Josh, I could see where it made sense for them to keep trying, bc even tho they had problems, they were both immensely attracted to the other; they both wished to BE with the other one (Altho Jazz was scared by the concept based on previous life experiences) and there was reason to believe they would end up together bc Gabe was not always the one making the first move.

With Kyle and Chaz, I felt that the more Chaz screwed with Kyle’s head, the less I wanted them together and the more I wished another character would appear with whom Kyle could start up a healthy relationship. Ultimately the issues were worked out, but I felt it was done all at the expense of Kyles dignity and self respect.

However, it’s not as if I was so horrified the rating went down to three. Walker is too good an author for that to happen. I simply wish the book had been written somewhat differently so that Kyle received a individual who treated him right from the beginning. But c’est la vie. I still greatly enjoyed it!

Less than average

I didn't really care for this book, the drama/angst felt extremely forced because it was stupid. And once the "big" secret that was causing it was out, it was over right away. That part I liked. The book also was too long. Joel Leslie is one of the best narrators ever and a favorite but I didn't care for him in this book. The only voice that sounded normal was Kyle and then the extra scenes at the end.

The narration is awful

I got about 30 minutes into this book and just stopped. The narrator's falsetto voice was just too much. No way could I stand 8 hours + of his narration. Have returned this book for credit.

Bad narrator

I think this had the opportunity to be a really great story and it may be. But I couldn't handle the narration at all! So it was a DNF for me, I gave him 3 chapters and couldn't do it.

Original story

I loved the story line and I could really feel how torn Chaz was about his secret. The push and pull was just frustrating enough to keep me riveted.

not the worst

Its not that bad just beware there is small town fodder and fatophobia. If you don't mind that, you'll be fine.

Couldn’t finish it...

The actual story really didn’t have much substance. Maybe this was meant for a YA audience? I didn’t find it interesting, and the characters seemed more appropriate for a cartoon/movie. I didn’t care for Chaz, both his voice and character. And the voice for that cat couldn’t have been more annoying. By the reviews, people either loved or really disliked this book. I’m glad people liked it for the author’s sake. I just can’t see it. To each his own!

ok

I found it difficult to keep listening to this book in the beginning because I disliked the character of Charles, so selfish. However, I persisted and then I started to enjoy it but I wouldn't want to listen to it again.

So good but read about Gabe n Josh first!

I loved this book and Aimee's humor had me laughing at every turn. I enjoyed the journey with Chaz and Kyle and have to admit to swooning emphatically over Kyle being the perfect book boyfriend. I loved the ups and downs, tension and sex but I have to say as this was my first Aimee Nicole Walker book I was a bit lost at points surrounding the other characters. I felt like I was totally missing something and felt like these characters were part of a second love story I should already know about. I'm not sure what drive me to this book first but from my experience I'd recommend reading Josh and Gabe's story first so your can truly embrace this love story properly.
