There are so many small pieces of this story that are moving along. Lyric and Ayden are still in a band. They’re making music together. Lyric is still working to overcome her stage freight, and she’s working on getting Ayden to agree to do a duet with her. They settle for writing a song together. And there’s even the potential (through Micha’s connections) that they might be able to tour during the summer. But Ayden can’t commit to something like that as long as his sister is still being held captive.
Fiona seems to have some strange things going on. She keeps mentioning that she can feel things before they happen or as they happen or maybe she dreams that things are going to happen. Really it’s quite unclear, but what is obvious is that Ayden’s sister, Sadie, had/has a similar ability. I’m waiting to see what becomes of that.
With Lyric’s help in the form of sketching a tattoo design for him, Ayden begins to try to move beyond his past and really make some progress on the physical contact with other people. Getting the tattoo that was branded on him covered up is a huge step in him feeling free of the people from his past while also being a giant step because of the amount of time that the tattoo artist had to actually be in contact with his skin. That, plus his increasing desire to be with Lyric in a more intimate way has him pushing past some things that make him uncomfortable. The two still haven’t progressed too far physically, and we all know that I always appreciate that.
As I already mentioned, someone appears to be stalking Ayden. Leaving him notes. Breaking into his house. Snagging a chunk of his hair. Following him. And all roads point toward the cult people from his past that held and tortured him and his siblings. I’ve been continually impressed with how frequently Lyric and Ayden both actually turn to and turn over evidence to the adults and authorities instead of how a typical series about characters this age and undergoing these circumstances would have the characters trying to tackle these big things by themselves. Kudos. That’s not to say that Ayden and Lyric always involve their parents or the police but for the most part, I’ve been impressed.
As with the previous two installments, it doesn’t feel like we’ve actually made much progress at all in the overall story. Figuring out what happened to Ayden in his past, what these people want with him, finding his sister (alive or dead), or even in moving forward in his life. It’s hard to imagine how everything will be wrapped up in just over 100 pages with the next book, Inspiring You, but I do believe that’s the last book of the series.
”…wanting to overcome something is the first step to getting there.”
Awakening You feels like just as good of an installment as the previous two. I’m so curious to know the answers to all of my questions. I do worry a little bit that the last book will be slightly rushed in trying to wrap everything up as well as reveal all of the answers about the past considering the length. But I enjoyed Awakening You all the same. Awakening You gets 4 Stars. Have you read Awakening You? What did you think? Let me know!
Ayden is finally starting to open up more in terms of his relationship with Lyric. He really begins to make a huge effort in terms of intimacy with Lyric. It wouldn’t seem like much until you think about what Aydens been through. Lyrics constantly telling him how amazing he his, so it becomes a lot harder for him to stay so self loathing. He’s so intent on getting better,for the sake of his sister and his relationship with his best friend Lyric.
I really admired Aydens bravery and determination when it comes to finding his sister. He will honestly do any and everything to get her safe, even at risk for his own life. I find that to be both good and bad. It’s good because it shows love,and selflessness. It’s bad because… well I’ll put that down below.
The few parts we got of drama were really good, my heart was racing,. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t go into detail but let’s just say….there’s a woman, that will instantly make you narrow your eyes and give you the creeps. The creepy feeling is definitely justified.
We finally were given a few “steamy” scenes between Ayden and Lyric,they weren’t anything close to raunchy. Their “intimate” scenes were more along the lines of beautiful and somewhat nerve wrecking .Ayden really tries to push himself in terms of becoming more physical with Lyric. He’s nowhere near ready to be touched sexually but he obviously wants to be able to for Lyric. I swear all I talk about when it comes to this series is the romance aspect.
I do love the banter that Lyric has with her father, they are so so so much alike. It’s hilarious to read, she knows exactly how to push his buttons. Ella and Micha both are pretty chill parents, they handle certain situations a lot better than most would. I really need to read their series, I’m pretty embarrassed that I haven’t already.
Unfortunately there wasn’t as much excitement or drama as I was anticipating.I really thought we were going to learn more about the Cult,and have more in terms of the psychos trying to get to Ayden. My reasoning is because I want him injured, it’s because I just wanted more conflict and drama.The Cult people do leave him creepy notes though. I also really wish Ayden had a better sense of self preservation.Though I admired the determination and willingness to possibly sacrifice his mind for the cause of saving his sister. He honestly needs to try to understand that it really isn't all on him to find his sister. The police are pretty much to blame for him feeling so pressured.
There was a little bit of new information about the Cult, just not as much as I wanted/needed.
I would have liked to know in advance that there was going to be another book, I really thought there was going to me more in terms of answers for Ayden. I was just left with more questions :(
I really did genuinely enjoy ‘Awakening You’. I can honestly say I recommend this series or anything and everything by Jessica Sorensen. Don’t let my 4 star rating or my critiques fool you into thinking this wasn't a beautiful book.
