I love coming across new authors. I love refreshing new styles of writing and adore Friends to Lovers story lines. When I read the synopsis of The One Awakened..the only two things that scared me going in were
1. It's a trilogy and
2. It's gonna have angst.
See I'm an big old fat angst CHICKEN
So.. I just prepared myself.
And I dove right i ...more
It was a perfect take on friends becoming lovers and I especially like the fact that although Seb was such a strong man, he had a romantic core. It's also very funny in places.
Even though you know that they are destined to be, there are so many twists and turns it keeps you guessing. (Won't say anymore as would be too many spoilers.)
I can't wait for ...more
What I liked about this book? The plot. It was interesting with a friends to lovers romance. The male mc was sexy as hell. The additional characters, they were genuine and added a nice touch. The whole single mother that's successful and independent. That I really liked. And the steamy sex scenes that were very well written.
What I didn't like? The punctuation. I swear it felt like the exclamation marks were all over the place and the question marks were in places that didn't seem like q ...more
The concept for the book, best friends to lovers- although having been done before has a rather unique twist to it in Alexandra's story. Lucia is a hard-working single mum struggling with the guilt of wanting a healthy se ...more
This was an amazing debut novel and it’s so refreshing to find other British authors who haven’t bowed under the pressure to give up their style, spellings, quirky expressions and hum ...more
I finished this book within two days – sneaky reading during work -I just could not put it away. I really liked this authors writing style and was very pleased to learn that the heroine was an independent, successful mother! Finally something else than the coy, early 20’s girls u usually have as you lead female.
I always love a good friends become lover’s story, and ms ...more
When I read what the book was about I was so excited and knew it was something right up my ally. However, I was disappointed in the book and I hate saying that, I hung on hoping that it would get better but didn't get there. Part of the reasoning is Lucia, she has no back bone and her confidence in herself is severally lacking to the point she just became annoying. But the biggest hang up was they never talked period, not as friends, lovers, or a couple and that's hard for me because ev ...more
4.5 stars this book is quiet good ;) lulu was great and strong but at times a tad annoying and Whiney .. The other characters are awesome !! I really liked seb I liked that he didn't get in a relationship if he wasn't ready for one he wanted to fuck around I like that
I am sooo going to read the next and I loved the little suspense at the end nice twist ;)

To have a friend that will always be there for you is what Lucia had within Sebastian. The first day they met both realized they had a special connection but never acted on it. Instead Lucia ended up talking with his friend Niall. They later became a couple and had a wonderful baby boy. Niall was growing tired on Lucia being pregnant and was never there for her, especially during her delivery. Niall confided in Sebastian and told him where he was during ...more
It starts out as a lust interest and turns into just friends when Sebastian Silver’s runs into (literally) Lucia. This story starts ten years later after that night when Sebastian let Lucia walk out of his life with another man. They remain frie ...more
There is never a dull moment in this book - a hard task to accomplish as the book is of good length. Ms. North’s writing is superb in that she has mastered the ability to give the readers the back story of Sebastian and Lucia’s friendship/relationship without the reader becoming antsy about getting the present story moving. It hard to believe that this is a debut novel! Sebastian is to die for! I can’t wait to read more about him, and ...more

I found this debut novel a breath of fresh air. The characters were solid with great background and thorough details. The authors quirky British slang added a bit of humor and authenticity. But don't be fooled there was a deep erotic romance that lures you into to the explicit details of their journey. A journey which began as friends but with a proposition g ...more
I really enjoyed this book. The story immediately drew me in, and the characters were so well defined that it was impossible not to be affected by the events.
The relationship between the Lucia and Sebastian is described with humour, frustation and a degree of sexual tension that may, frankly, leave you hot and bothered. And the ending?? Lets just stay ...more
MUST READ ALERT!!!
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! And I NEED THE SECOND ONE IMMEDIATELY!!!! Well written, with a great story full of ups and downs, with female characters that are witty, lovely, sexy, funny and totally adorable, and male characters that are sexy, sizzling hot, especially our amazing alpha Sebastian!!! To say that i devoured this book is an understatement! To say that i liked Sebastian and Lucia is defying reality! I ADORED them! This ...more
The book started slow for me but once it picked up there was no stopping. It took me some getting used to the British English grammar, since I am used to the American. However, it really added to the ...more
I was so glad to have the opportunity to read this story via the ARR Program after reading the short description I was totally hooked, so bad that I needed to read first the second book before making my review because I just couldn’t stop reading.
Lots of people have a crush on their best friend but it’s not for everybody to turn this over in a lover relationship like Lucia and Sebastian. I loved the way it was written especially because ...more
