5 Stars: Awakened is more of a NA romance but I still enjoyed it. My favorite character was Serra (or Serendipity) because she is a strong female character that doesn't know it until the end. Serra reminds me of some of my other favorite female characters. I also like Liam, he reminds me of a strong male hero. He is the strong one from the beginning.
The best part of the book was the relationship between all the characters. All the characters are either friends or will be. They all just fit in the story perfectly.
I honestly recommend this book to people over the age of 14. Good reading!
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?
