One thought on “Awakening

  1. Linda

    Arc provided by Netgalley for an honest review Awakening, such an apt title for this book, the author, Ms Holmes could not have chosen a better name, because for your main Charachter Nora Young I is all about awakening to her desires, sexual and professional.Nora Young is finding herself and dissatisfied with the status quo, but from her boyfriend Darren s eyes what could be wrong he sees her twice a week, they have a routine, their on track for marriage and a family Does Nora not see this Why [...]

    Where have you been all my life Awakening is Sydney Holmes first novel I actually read the first chapter online and liked it so much that I wanted to read the rest of the book I was intrigued by the mystery of Ryan Nora s first meeting, they had instant chemistry on the dance floor but didn t know each other s names My curiosity about Ryan kept me turning the pageswhy did he say he lived too far if he didn t Why didn t he want her to see his home What has he been doing for the last three years W [...]

    4 Super Sexy Stars Whoa This was one hot book My first by Sydney Holmes, but I ll happily read I was intrigued from the beginning and enjoyed the way Nora evolved into her true self The awakening that she experienced with Ryan was an excellent parallel metaphor to the one she experienced career wise Darren was a mega creeper who should have been handled effectively Nora and Ryan s chemistry was off the charts Love scenes were erotic but tasteful, somehow The ending was a bit abrupt The author [...]

    An ARC through Netgalley was offered in exchange for an honest review.The title Awakening is a theme through the book Nora is awaked sexually, her career motives are awakened, and she is awakened emotionally The author does a superb job of building themes through the book There are intense sex scenes though the wording is a bit redundant The book fails a bit in building tension and angst, but overall is an enjoyable read I was drawn in by Nora and Ryan and hope the next book comes out soon.

    AWAKENING by Sydney Holmes I received a free, signed paperback copy of this book through giveaway My journey with this book began as soon as I unwrapped it from it s package and saw the very sexy man on the book s cover Faded in the background it shows the same man embracing a scantily clad woman in a very sexy pose It was clear immediately that this book was going to be a steamy read Synopsis Nora Young is three years post college and in a steady and extremely boring relationship Even their sex [...]

    Book OneONCE YOU STEP OVER THE EDGE THERE S NO TURNING BACKEver 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 par [...]

    Awakening, Sydney HolmesReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsI liked the description and quickly got into this book Nora s a person it s easy to like, hard working, ambitious, has good friends, a responsible job and a boyfriend of three years She s trying to spice up their sex life, and he thinks she s lost it, as far as he s concerned they re fine and she s some kind of sexual oddity to want .Slowly the disenchantment grows the plan was for her to take time out while he built his career, then [...]

    free copy provided by the publisher via netgalley I need to read the sequel to this Yesterday, if possible It s not a 10 out of 10 book for me, but it s definitely entertaining.I don t know what s up with these characters, or how the author did it, but she totally hit the nail on the head with this one.Nora is a corporate events planner, who, because of a crappy relationship, has become accustomed to being a spectator in her own life She does everything to accommodate and to please her complexed [...]

    I loved Ryan and NoraLets start with Nora When this story begins she is in a relationship with Darren and to me, he is smothering the life right out of her It s always about him, he s really moody, and Nora basically gives up her dream career so that he can get his career started first Now 3 years later Nora goes out with her girlfriends to celebrate Sophie s 24th birthday and they are drinking and dancing and Nora is relaxing and having fun something that she can t do with Darren because he nev [...]

  13. Sharon Xuereb

    Copy obtained from NetGalley This was a fast fun read, and deals with issues that I think most of us can relate to at some point in our lives.Nora is feeling like her life is getting stale She wants passion, love and to have the career she has always dreamed of, plus someone by her side to encourage and support her along the way Ryan dances into her life and then she believes that what she wants is possible.This is a character driven story and these are two very likeable characters, flaws and a [...]

    Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Well, what can I say This was almost a DNF for me which is a very rare thing I can honestly say that 3 4 through it I was asking myself, do I really care what this big secret life is that Ryan won t discuss with Nora Nope, didn t really care but I forced myself to finish this book This book started out with a lot of promise, the club scene by far was my favorite in the entire book.Big flags for me are the fact that the story line di [...]

    I have to day that I really enjoyed this book I really liked that there were no heavy life altering past drama s.Nora, is a great character that a lot of people will relate too I like that she is slowly realizing that her life can be so much then it is Nora was well written, in the fact that she is realizing that Darren is now what she wants and ready to explore her sexual creativity I love how Ryan was introduced in to her life and the story Sydney did an amazing job of taking a delicate situa [...]

    I really enjoyed the majority of Awakening I was prepared to rate it 4 stars I liked the character development in the first half especially Nora I liked the steamy and kinky scenes for most of the book until 89 percent.Once I finished reading I was unsure how to rate it so I made a list of pros and cons The two pros are listed above Unfortunately, there were cons than pros with this book First of all, I am confused Is there a sequel for this book because a few loose end were left incomplete The [...]

  19. Bolinda

    I received an ARC copy of the book for an honest review.When I first finished the book I was at 3 stars, but after a couple of days I moved it up to 3.5 to 4 stars I liked Nora At first she seemed stuck, boring boyfriend, boring job, etc Then meeting Ryan something seems to change for her I liked that she didn t fall apart when things got tough Not when Ryan s ex girlfriends tried to mess with her, not when her ex attacks her, not when Ryan seems to ignore her She had decided to move forward in [...]

  20. Christy

    I liked this book but the woman, Nora, was her own worst enemy in it She stayed with a man out of habit or indifference that was nuts without even realizing it until she broke it off with him She meets a guy at a club one night and after one erotic dance decides he could be the man of her dreams She meets him again at her job and he acts like a first class jerk that doesn t remember her When she stands up to him and they get to know each other he admits he does an starts pursuing a relationship [...]

  24. Anna

    I was thrilled to get an ARC of this book I thought the premise of an event planner lawyer wanna be working with a lawyer was a great foundation for a love story The erotic nature of the relationship that happens as a result of Nora being stifled by her ex and an adventurous lawyer.There were parts of the story that were disjointed that I felt would have worked better with maybe plans for a second book did I just suggest that HA We spent so much time leading up to Nora and Ryan that when we got [...]
