Title: Kayden: The Past
Author: Chelle Bliss

Release Date: 1.1.14



Kayden Michaels has a past filled with sex, addiction, and heartache. A past that he’s avoided sharing with the love of his life, Sophia, and held close to his core not risking rejection. Needing to get his addictions in check and gain control of his life for the sake of his family, Kayden is forced to confront his past and make amends for the path he’s walked.

Kayden must recount every carnal act and the betrayal from those he’s loved to identify the triggers that spur his addictions and overcome it all to be worthy of Sophia’s love – his sole reason to exist.

This is NOT a novella.

Extended Excerpt ~ Prologue

I was an addict.

Sophia didn’t know this about me when we met – when I stole her heart.

I struggle every day with my sobriety, and Sophia is my compass. She’s what keeps me grounded and always points me in the right direction. She doesn’t nag or yell but smothers me in her love and understanding.

Sophia asked to hear my story, my past. She wanted to know everything about me…what led me to her. I gave her a condensed version – one that is closer to PG-13 compared to the NC-17 reality that I lived. No matter how much the person you love the most, the one who is the center of your universe asks about your past, you never give the full truth. I never want Sophia to compare herself to any of the women or experiences that I’ve had before her. Sophia is perfection in my eyes. No one could ever compare to her.

I’d like to say my life began again when I met Sophia, that I was given a clean slate. Sophia met me at the point in my life where I had given up on love. My life consisted of work and pleasure – pleasure from the unattached sexual relationships and the booze that had filled my nights.

When my life spiraled out of control, Sophia caught me in her web of security and love. She is my savior, the only thing that is true in my life. She can’t know my entire story. Who would want to know the true story of the love of their life, the father of their child?

The thought of Sophia being with another man makes my skin crawl and pisses me off. She’s mine, and I’d like to think that I’ve been the only man in her life and the first one to taste her, but I know I’m lying to myself. Ignorance is bliss, and I’d rather stay in the dark.

After our child was born, I thought it was necessary to get help to control my drinking. I needed to make sure I never walked down the path of self-destruction again. I had too much to lose. For the first time in my life, there was something more important than myself or even Sophia. There’s a tiny little life that depends on me and needs my love and adoration.

I didn’t want to go to group counseling – I’ve done that before, and it sucked; it wasn’t more than a temporary fix. I needed something to get to the root of my addiction and allow me to find other ways to cope with the pressures in life besides at the bottom of a bottle. The counselor told me to write down the major events in my life – the ones that caused my drinking to go out of control or drove me to drink. He said I needed to understand the cycle. What came first – the booze or the problems? He asked me to write a journal about my life. Everyone who I could remember that triggered my drinking, use of drugs, and events that were caused by my addiction that had an impact on my life. I didn’t see the use in writing it for someone else to read and analyze, but he said I would understand it in time.

Where do I start the tangled mess that was my life? Do I start with my first taste of booze, the first sniff of coke, or the crazy bitches I’ve experienced? There will be bits that I leave out; things I don’t want the world to know. I’ve included the ones that show what has molded me into the man I am today. The ones that will fill in the gaps on my troubled journey that Sophia and I overcame and show the depths of my depravity and addiction before Sophia walked into my life and turned my world upside down.

I’ll start at the beginning, what led me off the path of righteousness through my moment of self-destruction and finally salvation in the arms of a loving woman too good to be mine.

Short Excerpt ~ Explicit:

“Hey, where ya going?” she asked. “What about me?”

“I’m sure someone here would be happy to give you what you want. I got what I was looking for, babe.”

“You had me suck your cock and you’re just going to fucking leave me here?” she asked glaring at me with hatred so pure I could almost feel the fist she wanted to hit me with.

“I got what I came for. You were a total bitch to me for years; you don’t deserve what I’d give, how good I’d fuck you,” I said with my arms crossed against my chest.

“You’re a total cocksucker, Kayden,” she said poking me in the chest with each word to drive the point home.

“No, that would be you, babe,” I said with a smile, “Oh, and by the way, you have a little on your chin,” I said pointing at her face chuckling softly at the situation. I watched as she wiped her chin and I turned and walked away, leaving her there like she deserved.

BARNES AND NOBLE—to come soon



Let me start off by saying I have not read Untangle Me (YET) so I don’t know Kayden other than him telling his life story in this book. I was given this book to read for my book blog and was told to read it by my partner on the page. I was hooked on the first page of the Prologue. I was sad to see the end of this book and don’t even know how to put into words how much I loved the book, Kayden and his fucked up-ness.

This story is about Kayden who struggles with addiction. It starts off with sober Kayden talking about Sophia, his saving grace. Kayden at this point is on the path to beating his addiction. His counselor told him to write down the major events in his life, the ones that caused him to go down a path of destruction. What caused his life to spiral out of control and the women who drove him deeper into the bottle.

This is a roller coaster ride of emotions. Chelle really drives the emotion into her words and you feel what Kayden feels. His anger, his struggle, his lust and his heartbreak. You sit back and kind of say HELL YEAH when he walks away from Mindy, you love his relationship with Bridget and how he tries so hard for her.
“Money’s great, but love’s more important. Love is the foundation that all else teeters on, the great precept that can bring you happiness or total torture.”
But then you’re heartbroken. You flip through the hot sex with countless women and find yourself on the bathroom floor with the sink smashed to shards (HOLY HOTNESS!). You meet Danielle and think that there is really hope for Kaydens happiness. But the black cloud comes rolling in and when it rains it pours. Theres hope again for Kayden when he sees Lisa again after it’s been years, only to want to punch her and her bi-polar ways. Kayden takes you on an adventure to New Orleans. And you want to scream when Lisa comes slumming around again. Then he stumbles upon someone who has the same last name of a past acquaintance. He friend requests her. “Do I know you?” She asks. And she ends up being the light at the end of the tunnel for him.

This book is hot, a fun read and beautifully thought out. I seriously cannot get over the authors writing. I LOVE when I am hooked and this book will be playing on my mind for DAYS to come.

Chelle Bliss… YOU ARE… AMAZING! xoxo

About the Author:

I have been a teacher for over ten years, and needed a creative outlet for all my naughty thoughts. I received a bachelors degree in History and a Masters in Education, which led me to becoming a high school history teacher.

I love to read, I can devour a book a day, when given the chance or having the time. I can’t pick one favorite book, there are just too many that come to mind. I do have favorite authors though. My top five authors are: Colleen Hoover, S.C. Stephens, Tarryn Fisher, CJ Roberts, and Kele Moon. I agonized over the top five. There are so many fantastic Indie authors that help feed my quest for the next best story.

Writing has been a journey unlike; filled with anguish, love, fear, and creativity. I’m excited for the next step and to share Kayden and Sophia.
