Summary –


Ever feel like everyone else has figured out this thing called life but you’re just watching it fly by, not really living?

Nora Young still believes she has time to figure it all out. She can still go to law school and take on the Supreme Court, make love in the sun, or even share her dreams with her boyfriend. Maybe that explains her morose mood when she realizes she’s moving up the corporate ladder at work as an Event Specialist—not a party planner thank you very much! It might also explain the horror when her emotionally distant boyfriend tosses out the words “marriage” and “kids” as if they’re the inevitable next steps in their benumbed, stifling relationship.

Nora realizes she needs to take control and create a life filled with passion, purpose and adventure.
Ryan Cole walks into her office and seems to offer everything Nora is looking for: passion, adventure—exhibitionism? But just when Nora starts to open up to Ryan and his crazy adventures, his ex-girlfriend warns her that Ryan’s real tastes are dangerously extreme. Intrigued, Nora pushes Ryan to reveal his secrets but will Nora be able to handle it when he comes clean? Does setting boundaries with Ryan mean saying goodbye to the most passionate, sexy man she’s ever met? (Thanks to for the summary)

My Thoughts –

I thought Awakening was ok.  I didn’t love and I didn’t hate it.  I read it all in one sitting, and the writing wasn’t overly descriptive.  The story was a quick read, there was lots of kinky/wild smexy bits and the characters were semi-interesting.  I may read the next installment, but I think it needs some more work (like editing and so on).
