Out of the Box Awakening is a refreshingly different take on your run of the mill romance read. I love how the main characters are older, yet still very young at heart – still enjoying a good romp in the hay.
Ash Harper is quite the catch! The author has done a fine job with multiple characters and I could identify with each one of them. I became emotionally attached and found myself left wanting more. I also love the importance of family and friends the author stresses in the book.
I’m now onto the second book, Out of the Box Regifted to see what’s in store for Ash & Olivia and the rest of this interesting bunch!
5 stars for this wonderful book and highly recommended!
As big a part as Ash Harper, Alan's friend, and Olivia's eventual lover, plays in this story, Olivia's blossoming from being a repressed, dominated wife to a independent, confident woman is the important part of this story. Olivia's strength is her ability to give love and nurture others. Her children, Ash's and their friends all fall under her spell and now that she's from escaped her husband's repressive negativity she begins to explore and discover that the relationship she and her husband shared was sorely lacking in affection, intimacy, and caring compared to the one she can have with a Ash.
She struggles but overcomes hurdles, starts to stretch her independence and starts to dream again.
I really enjoyed the book.

There are detailed family situations with a bevy of twenty-something offspring and their tattooed musician friends.
While waiting to be free of her marriage box, Olivia meets her soul mate, the man of her dreams, who awakens feelings she never knew possible.
Recommended for romance lovers.

Out of the Box Awakening is the story of Olivia. A 50-something empty-nester who is beginning to find her self again after thirty years of being just “Mom” or “Mrs.”. Her husband has been transferred to Chicago from Houston, requiring her to pack up her home and contemplate starting a new life in a new place. While she is apprehensive, she approaches the new adventure as catalyst to find herself and breathe fresh life into her increasingly stale marriage. However, before the movers have even delivered her things to the new city, she is faced with fact that her marriage is over and she is on her own. Luckily she has Ash, the man her husband had arranged for them to stay with while they looked for a new home and who now offers Olivia a safe haven while she moves forward to this new chapter in her life.
It is always fun to catch a glimpse of oneself in a book. Reading about places I know, movies I have seen or music I listen to is a little thrill making the characters more real and approachable. Like Olivia, I too have a music play list that is all over the place from classical to country to rap and something from everything in between. Most people I know think that is nuts, but that is how I listen to music and I immediately connected with Olivia and her play list. I am also blessed to be married to a musician and have a son who is following in his footsteps. It didn’t take me long to take to Ash and Tommy as well. Ms. Theriot has done a terrific job of capturing the voice and characterization of this whole extended family. Each person adds something distinct to the whole, making the fabric of the story a little more vibrant. Family, those you are born to and those you find along the way, is the foundation of this story and though the romance is deliciously steamy and sweet, that is what I take from this book.
I am not certain how Olivia ever managed to have a life with her cardboard cutout drip of an ex- husband, or managed to raise such fantastic kids, a common theme for many women her age, I am sure. I am also certain the best thing he ever did for them was to move aside and let them look for happiness in another place. It was a pleasure to be a part of Olivia’s journey to find herself. It is great to believe that love can be found at any age.
