Awakening by Ashley Suzanne Book Tou








 Mira’s broken and battered. She’s fighting to put herself back together while her heart is trying to forget. Can she continue moving forward with one man while in love with another?

Skylar’s wrestling demons he never imagined in his wildest dreams. The girl he’s been in love with for years finally has feelings for him. There’s only one problem: her heart might lie somewhere else. How long until his will power shatters?

Who will seize Mira’s heart and never let go? Will these feelings ever go away or will they be an AWAKENING?


EXCERPT

I continue to giggle all the way down the hall and into the elevator. As soon as we hit the
elevator, the proximity of Skylar to my humming body really hits home and I feel a sudden wave of
arousal. I haven’t felt this way since I woke up, not even with Danny. Glancing over at Skylar, I can see
him fidgeting around.

As I’m looking at him, he turns to face me, and I can see the arousal in his eyes. He casually licks
his lips and shoves his hands into the pockets of his jeans. I smile and turn back to face the front of the
elevator. I have him right where I want him.

When the elevator descends to the first floor, I’m smacked in the face with the gravity of my
reality. Danny is waiting for the doors to open, with a huge smile on his face. Glancing back to Skylar, I
see that he’s been smacked just as hard. Skylar’s Adam’s apple bobs in his throat, like he’s trying to

swallow his feelings, and moves past me toward Danny.

Review
Mira is trying to put herself back together, but the man she is engaged to is not the man she loves.  With conflicted feelings, Mira is trying to understand how to not only avoid hurting Danny her fiancee' but Skylar who she is positive she is meant to be with.  Skylar loves Mira unconditionally, but he is being strong and refusing to accept her feelings to stop from hurting his best friend.  How long until the whole situation implodes and can all three find happiness,, even if not with each other?

Told from Danny's, Skylar's and Mira's perspective.   I had not read the first in the book so was initially slightly confused, but you figure it out easily.  I thought Danny was so sweet and really felt for him as he becomes the odd man out.  Skylar and Mira have a chemistry that is undeniable, your rooting for them but at times it is hard to forget that others are getting hurt. Would definitely read more from this author.
