Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Katie lost a lot, then she had a breakdown, and lost the even more. Writing was her way of climbing her way back up. She never would have thought it would lead to a famous sexy actor being snowed in with her, or the discovers that cabin would lead them to.

Kane was known for having models half his age on his arm and in his bed, but none for more than a day or two. Being snowed in with one of the writers of the next movie he was starring in for several days was the most time he’d ever spent with one woman, and although he was nowhere near ready, he would eventually have to face his feelings.

But it was what happened in the cabin that connected them. There were ghosts, a jealous angered one, and one who just wanted them to find his long lost love. Both they would have to figure out to help. One led to a realization for Katie and the other would change their entire lives, bonding them together for eternity.

“You came before I did this time.”

“Aye, it was your sexy vocabulary like in your books. Couldn’t stop it.” – This was a turning moment in which afterwards I wasn’t the biggest fan of Kane, but at least this made me laugh first.

Awakening is a riveting love story wrapped in lore. The mystical aspects were just strong enough to keep the suspense alive, the characters were interesting (I can’t wait to find out more about the band!) and the storyline was unique. If you’re looking for something a little different you should definitely give this one a try.
