Awakened (Vampire Awakenings #1)
Genre: M/F, Paranormal Romance
Traumatized by her past, and struggling to move on from it, Sera has spent the past three years of college hiding herself from the world and content to stay that way. A chance encounter with Liam shatters her sheltered world, leaving her stunned and shaken by the strange feelings and emotions he arises in her, feelings she never thought she would experience and that frighten her in their intensity.
Harboring a dark and deadly secret of his own, Liam knows that he should stay away from Sera; that he will only bring her more hurt, but he is irresistibly drawn to her and unable to deny himself the pleasure that only she can bring to him. But when their pasts collide with their present, and Liam’s true nature is revealed, will their love for each other be enough, or will they be torn apart forever?
This book contains…sex.
My Review: 5/5 Stars
Sera used to be live and vibrant before tragedy struck and the people that were supposed to believe her, let her down in the worse way. Now in college she keeps to herself, staying close to her roommate when they are out. Until Liam comes on the scene.
Liam knew from the beginning that he should stay away from Sera, but he was pulled to her, like a moth to a flame. Even though his best friends told him to stay away from her because all it would lead to was heartache for the both of them. Did he listen? No! Can Liam make it work with Sera or will both of their pasts be the death of them.
I absolutely loved this story. Yes it took a while to get to the really good parts, but once it got there I was like hot damn, that’s what I’m talking about.
Don’t you hate it when you think someone is your best friend and you can trust them, but let a hot guy come into the picture they turn on you so fast, you get whiplash. If that hasn’t happened to you, it sure did to Sera. I mean seriously why can’t people just be happy for other people. I liked how with everything going on in the story Brenda gave Sera not one, but two haters. Though the second one didn’t come until later. You could see the trust and love that Sera had for Liam as she came out of her shell for him.
Liam was just… awesome! From the beginning he stood up for Sera and once they were together he would do anything for her and I do mean anything. They were just so cute. Once everything calmed down with the back stabbing best friend, Sera and a few friends go to a cabin to get away from the stress, but damn if the stress didn’t follow them up there, with the stress came hot vampire sex and a psycho chick that thinks your man is hers.
There wasn’t much I didn’t like about this book, a few typos, but nothing to bad. Can’t wait to read more because who wouldn’t want to read about hot vampires?
Brenda loves to write adult paranormal and historical romantic fiction. When not with family, or out with friends, she’s happy at home in Mass. with her husband, and energetic puppy Loki. She is currently working on the third Vampire Awakenings book and has a historical romance coming out later this summer.
