Avery and Logan are two lost souls not really looking for “partner”. Both have issues and come from dysfunctional families (and holy cow are they ever). I wanted these two to face their fears and insecurities together and be able to put their pasts behind them. This book did contain lots of emotional feelings and Avery and Logan had to fight their way to the top. I especially loved the “family twist” in the storyline and didn’t see that one coming!
There are really two major (for me) instances where I felt the book took a dive. The first one is when Logan comes home and finds Avery and Austin huddled around the table and he immediately accuses them of cheating behind his back – kicks Avery out – and the next minute they are all lovely dovey? Nope…I know this is a book of fiction, but come on, not even five minutes later all is well? The second is when the table is turned and Avery accuses Logan of cheating and then he immediately asks for her hand in marriage? Nope…that just didn’t work for me. At least let the characters stew for a day or two and grovel for a bit. Not this “Oh..Im sorry, now we can have make-up sex” two minutes after the accusing started.
Coming Alive is the first book in the “Welcome to Carson Series” by Ms Harless. I most likely will continue with this series as I would like to know what happens between Austin and Nikki.

5 out of 5 stars
The story Coming Alive: Welcome to Carson, Book One by Renee Harless is a contemporary romance book. This is the first book I have read by the author and I found that she has created a story that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. This is a story that I didn’t just read, I felt my way through. The story of Avery and Logan is awesome and I don’t believe I can think up enough adjectives to fully do this book justice. This starts out as a story about two people who are not truly living. They let their past shape their future. Then when they meet I read of a connection beginning and only growing stronger every day they are together. This book had my emotions going up and down all the time. There is one passage that really touched my heart. It was talking about Avery and Logan. It said, “You’re the air she needs to breathe, you’re what keeps her alive. She’ll be the reason you live and you’re what brought her to life.” This fits these two so perfectly. This is a story that shows the power of true love. I highly recommend reading this book to find out just what the future holds for Avery and Logan. This is the first book in a series and I can’t wait to read the next one. This story does have adult situations that include some very steamy love scenes. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.
"I have no clue. It's like I kiss you and my brain turns into a Hallmark card."
I couldn't put this down! From page one I was sucked in to the story, eager for every word, every sentence and every page. Avery has been through hell. A childhood without love. Everyone she's ever loved, ripped from her through tragic circumstances. She's barely existing. She needs a change. Moving to Carson, NC for a fresh start, she meets Dr. Logan Chamberlin, a physician in the clinic where she works. Logan, a well-known womanizer and one-night stand donor, is captivated by her. Can she overcome her fear of losing him, like all the others she's loved, to finally find happiness? Can Logan break down her walls and chase what he never knew he wanted? Will a mysterious letter left for her by her late grandmother change the course of her life forever? I can't wait to read Book 2!!!
Second before you start reading grab a box of Kleenex as you will need them! I did!
Now, while this is a sad story it also shows so much more. The plot is strong if not a bit heavy handed on the sexual scenes.
Only thing I have a issue with is why would she agree to marry him as she is leaving him. I would demand answers before saying yes not afterwards.
The author also has a few spots that need an editor but otherwise its a very well written moving story.
