Review: 4.5 stars
Lets see how should I start this review?! Hmm I got it now, Awakening is a must read! This book has all sorts of super natural creatures. Enough to quench any paranormal enthusiast thirst. I absolutely enjoyed the chemistry between Tristan and Sophie. Tristan would do anything to protect Sophie which I admire. All the characters have a special bond amongst one another. I really admired Sophie I cant stand weak whinney female characters but Sophie was anything but that. She remained strong throughout the book even after facing down demons. I have to say Samantha Long did a great job ending this first novel it ended with a cliffhanger but it wasn't so bad that I felt the need to hurl my ereader against the wall. She gave the reader enough information to hold you over for the next installment. If I could give this book any critiqe at all it would be I wished it had a tad bit more adventure. Other then that I cant wait to read the next book in this series. I feel Samantha Long is a author we will be hearing much more about in the near future.
Excerpt: Movement caught her gaze. Tristan stalked forward, his motions flowed, cat like.
She stood, frozen. His eyes paralyzed her with their predatory gleam. If this was a war, she’d lost weeks ago.
He stopped right in front of her. Tempted her with his closeness. He placed his hands on either side of her neck.
Warmth immediately permeated her body and her lips parted. Blood thundered in her ears.
Then, his lips touched hers. It wasn’t a sweet, I-missed-you kiss. He pressed his body into hers, invading her senses, and poured all his pent up frustration into it.
A tear slipped down her cheek even as she kissed him back. His hurt flowed into her.
She’d made him feel used.
Before she had time to process all of this, he pulled back. Accusation shone in his eyes. A low growl rumbled in his throat. The animal in him prowled right underneath the surface.
It was time for the end battle. No matter how this ended, it would be final. They’d either make up or hate each other forever.

About The Author
I'm a multitasking mom of four. When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle. If you can't find me in front of the computer, I'm most likely watching my DVR.
I've been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled "If I was an Indian". My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief. Racy, I know.
Of the things I'm addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list. My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter. Few of many I love.
Thanks so much for reading!
