Oh boy! Looks like this author rushed to get this book out for all those 50 shades junkies! There is no less than 2 mistakes on each page. So poorly written! Save your money. There are much better books out there. I can't believe the high rating this received.

I fell hard for the cover art first, GUILTY! Second was the character Stefan.

Jennifer and Stefan meet while she is almost a college graduate. Stefan is a very young millionaire building his empire. Their relationship reminded me of the movie Intersection, the way the character Richard Gere (Vincent) falls for Lolita Davidovich (Olivia) - just that whirlwind feel their relationship had (not the entire movie or theme/plot) Stefan is used to having his way in all things and does not like to wait. Jennifer on the other hand likes things her way but for different reasons, she has a shield up. Stefan does not let that shield hold him back. He goes after what he wants --Jennifer. Jennifer is very much taken with him but she isn't about to be controlled. That doesn't last long with Stefan.

Their relationship has its twists and turns from a bit of fatal attraction to some Dominant play.

My reason for only 4 stars is at times the story felt hurried. I would of liked to know more about Jennifer's story surrounding her mother and father. We only get little bits that almost drive you crazy but in a good way. I am assuming there will be another book that will answer some of our burning questions?!?!

I hope that Kennedy and Ayden get their own story, they were strong secondary characters, it would be great to see where they end up. With that said I am wondering what the author has coming up next...

I wanted to give this 3.5 stars. I did not love the characters, but I did not hate them. I seemed to really like Kennedy and Ayden--would love to read their story.

I think my issue with the story were the characters or possible the plot. At times I found the story to be confusing. It all over the place. As if it hopped around a lot -- it was back and forth and not enough meat in the middle. It started out pretty good and than fell flat in the middle and then the end picked back up again--just enough to make me what to read the second book!

Now when Stefan stepped on the scene--I thought OMG! Caramel eyes?!?! DARK HAIR!!? Normally its all blue eyes guys in books. Now I LOVE ME some dark eyes on a man and dark hair! I thought YUMMMYY! But than I read he SMOKED?? GROSS---a MAJOR turn off for me. Its a nasty habit that stinks and I just could not get out of my mind how much he prob smelled and tasted like smoke- Yuck.

Overall it was a okay book and it left a cliffhanger, so I will be reading book #2!

Awakened could have been better. It seemed to draw too many comparisons to many other books that I have read in the past 9 months, among them Fifty Shades of Grey. The story was too rushed and although the couple end up together, there is a cliffhanger and now we must wait until the next book to see if they will live HEA. AT this point, I don't know if I care. I never got to really get involved enough with the characters. For a first book by the author, it was ok. Hopefully number 2 in the series will get better. I'm sure it will be.

This story is pretty long and drags out at times. I did enjoy reading it and both characters are beautifully written but so damn stubborn. I want to smack Jennifer in the head sometimes and kick Stefan in the balls, but that's how well the characters come to life.

It does drag at times, and I feel like both characters are constantly skating figure 8's around each other, I cannot wait for the next book though and that's where all my frustration lays... The waiting, for the next installment!

A book is an author's time, sweat, and tears. It's their baby. How do you tell someone that they have an ugly baby? Furthermore...who's to say that I could have made a better looking kid. Who the hell do I think I am!? I hate these moments.

This book needed some serious revisions; sentence structure, dialogue, plot development. Y'all know me, I'm not a grammar natzi and I'm not starting now. However, it was more about how the sentences were worded and pieced together. I can totally overlook poor grammar if it sounds right, but it didn't. They sounded...wrong, out of place. It was distracting.

It's almost like C.N. Watkins took the best parts of what's hot right now and pieced them together to make one story. The pieces did not fit and the plot suffered. Things just kept coming out of nowhere. The author tries to make the moments her own, but it just didn't work. It was like Awakened was the bastard love child of all my favorite erotica books. Stephan started out being his own character, but then all of the sudden I was like, "When did he turn into Christian Grey?" I understand he was suppose to have two-sides, but his ying did not fit his yang.

I felt more like I was reading a first draft...the very first draft. It definitely had some very hot moments and though it took a while, by the end I could see a plot forming. One I could possibly follow. I also give respect for a cliffhanger that has even me wanting to pick up the sequel.

I really think the author is headed in the right direction and with a little experience and some honest critique partners, I think she definitely has the potential to get there. She's just not there yet. READ ON!!
