Pressure to begin college and an epic blowout with her best friend, turns Baskia Benedict’s party life toxic. Late nights bubble with drama, her relationship with her “not-boyfriend” fizzles, and failing to meet her parents’ expectations results in an escape to the family cabin in the mountains.

Unexpectedly, her brother’s friend Trace appears, seeking refuge from his own obscure problems at the rural hideaway. All Baskia needs are a few days to get her head clear, but Trace distracts her with his smile—always on the edge of amusement—and infuriates her with his seductive charm. When the rumble of his motorcycle fades, Baskia focuses on figuring out her future and nursing a not-so-healthy crush on Trace.

As days turn into months, Baskia stubbornly remains at the cabin, determined to find her purpose and secretly hoping for mysterious Trace to return. After she meets locals—including getting snowed in with her cute neighbor—learns how to cook, and mends past relationships, she discovers the simple life might just save her from herself. Although Baskia transforms and gains independence, Trace returns and stirs up trouble, challenging her to follow her ultimate bliss.

On the Mountain, is book five in the Follow your Bliss series. It can be read chronologically, or as a stand-alone story, filled with seduction, transformation, and love.


Sounds fantastic, right? You can pick up a copy of this book here.


Although Baskia Benedict has spent the coldest of the winter months tucked away in the cabin in the mountains, she’s no stranger to beach life. She may have traded in city life along with the near-limitless account from mommy and daddy, she hasn’t forgotten how to shop. When she meets up with her friend Mellie in Mexico for spring break, she makes sure to pack all the essentials. Check out the contents of her beach bag below.
