New to me author...
I enjoyed this book so much. Romance-Suspense, in my opinion, is the best EVER! As soon as I started reading this story I was sucked into a world packed full of action, mystery, and smoking hot sex.
A new police chief shares a past with one of his detectives and a string of crimes bring the two back into each others arms. But will it last?....
Looking forward to the next in the series.

A quickly paced, fast moving book, the emotionally charged story-line starts with a beaten woman and climaxes with another incident with the perpetrator, with lots of action in between. Readers should be warned that although the references that involve abuse and beating are not specific or greatly detailed, the plot essentially rests on one woman’s inability to come to terms with her own loss of faith in humanity after her own traumatic event.

The writing is smooth and tightly interweaves the

Review as appears on my blog Amy's Book World:

Awakenings is the second book in this series by this author. In this one we follow Cole and Alicia on their journey to love. Alicia has some demons from the past that still haunt her. First the death of her mother as a young girl and then her kidnapping a year prior. All this adds to her reasoning that she us not meant to be happy. Even though a few years ago she and Cole shared one hot night together. Cole takes things into his own hands when she

Awakenings is a great story that has so many components to it. It is the second book in the series and although I did not read the first one it had enough information where I was very comfortable reading ti and not feeling lost.

Alicia is a detective who is trying to solve a case. She has a child who has been kidnapped and a crazy murderer on the lose. But all that takes a back seat to what is really going on in Alicia's life. She had something tragic happen to her and she is hell bent on not

Kacey pens "Awakenings" a fast paced action romance in a plot that flows smoothly. Be cautioned that there is references to abuse but nothing really graphic.I found her characters to be well developed and relatable to real life with their fears and concerns. A farily quick read that is recommended for those over the age of 18.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

This was just as gut-wrenching as the last installment. Awakenings was action packed and the chemistry between the lead characters is HOT HOT HOT! I am loving this series!!! The author has a way of drawing you into the story and holding you captive until the very end. I couldn't put this down.

his is the second book in this series and I received a copy from the author in return for an honest review. I have to admit that the only reason it took me a little longer to read the second book was because I spent most of the day with my daughter and grandson. This was another book I had trouble putting down. This book picks up with Alicia and Cole whom we met in illusions and her struggle to move forward. I love the characters and this book moves along well. I can't wait to see where we go ...more
