Jen (That's What I'm Talking About)
None of the Holmes’ siblings take Reid very seriously, and he’s done nothing to try and change their minds about him. But when he wakes next to yet another beautiful woman who’s name he can’t remember, he realizes it’s time for a life change. And when he meets Holmes Construction newest employee, he realizes Brooklyn is someone worth changing for.

Brooklyn blames herself for the closing of her dad’s company, and now she’s going to work twice as hard for Holmes Construction to help pay for her dad

So Good!

Another good visit with the Holmes Family! This time, it's Reid's turn. He meets Brooklyn when she starts to work for Alex's growing construction company, and wants to dislike her, but her Black Girl Magic proves to be too much to resist. I love that Brooklyn was so different from our usual heroine; she was into comics and cosplay, a self-proclaimed nerd (or blerd, lol), with a unique vibe. Poor Reid didn't stand a chance. Speaking of Reid, while handsome and fine as hell (I mean, he is

My favourite

These books just keep getting better. Reid and Brooklyn are my particular catnip. Nerd (Blerd!) Girl, gorgeous guy, each finding themselves by getting to know the other. Dreamy romance. I loved it. You could probably read this as a stand alone, but why deny yourself the pleasure of meeting all the Holmes family. I hate cliff hangers, and this definitely has some cliff hanger aspects, but the HEA is so satisfying that I didn't let that bother me. I've already one clicked the next!

Love Me Some Reid

Many thoughts have been running through my mind. Brooklyn's and Reid's self discovery and questioning whether the choices for their life's path is an all too familiar personal exercise. I fully appreciated their resolve. Excluding an anticipated immediate physical hookup kept the characters real and kept me definitely wondering when. Both Brooklyn's and Reid's difficulty accepting their truths promoted not putting the book down. Love me some Reid. I recommend Awaken Me as a Satu

Sinfully good

Awaken Me struck so many cords of everyday life and relationships. Ms. Rochon tackled learning disabilities,business ventures, new budding love, and aging parents in this wonderful Holmes family novel. The attraction between Reid and Brooklyn was evident from the beginning trailer scene. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their drive to dream big and strive to make them reality. It was infectious. I love every book in this series but this book is now my favorite. Five stars of

Blerds (Black nerds) get the victory!

Farrah Rochon has done it again. This time, in Awaken Me, she writes a story to which most all kinda cute, average women can relate. Brooklyn, a black comic-loving nerd, meets Reid, the Holmes family charmer. Awaken Me proves girls like her do get hunks like him as readers like us get to delight in this story about finding love while facing one's fears and pursuing one's dreams.

Good Read

This story was slow at times, but was a good read. I liked the couple together. The start of the story had me ready, but I was let down a little when the couple didn't play hide and seek until 80.5% into the story. Reid was compassionate and all, I was expecting a bit more romance between him and Brooklyn. Overall, the main story and the back story was nicely done. 4.5 Stars....

Gotta love those Holmes Men!

Readers just have to love these Holmes men! Reid, the baby cousin, has always played it safe in work, but reckless in life. When he nears an age milestone he realizes he needs a change. Into his life walks Brooklyn, a new manager for his cousins construction company. As they become close they realize how much they have in common and how they both need to take a chance on life.

Reid and Brooklyn

Bravo Farrah. You really captured the emotional rollercoaster of Reid and Brooklyn's inner demons. Yet, allow the storyline to unfold were it was heartfelt to see them support each other's misgivings. Alex was a great supporting character because his compassionate side and ability to support others spoke volumes. The epilogue was sad and I look forward to what is to come for Willow. As she was the anchor for so long to Reid's happiness.

Excellent saga about growth , love and confidence of the two protagonists in an unusually supportive environment

I would recommend this to anyone who is considering a career change, who feels restricted by responsibilities or insecurities. The major obstacles they faced were self doubt.

Reid and Brooklyn

Absolutely loved this installmentioned of the Holmes family. Reid finally really grows up and takes responsibility. His amazing "coming of age" was a great read. Bother he and Brooklyn had a lot of growing to do and resolving their issues. Look forward to Harrison and Willow being successful in resolving their problems.

Farrah is a new author to me and I really liked her book it was well written and had good characters that you cannot help but like. This is Reid and Brooklyn's story while he does not want to be attracted to her he cannot help but like her and they were cute together I just loved how nerdy she was.I enjoyed it but wish I had read the previous books first

This story was great. It grabbed me from the beginning and kept me captive for the entire story. I was very enthralled with Reid and Brooklyn 's story. Great writing. I felt like I was there.

Heart warming

I loved the storyline and the real ness of black love and families. The fear of living your dreams and taking the big step into the unknown so that you can live your best life.

Acknowledging Fears

Reid has been keeping secrets and letting his Siblings make assumptions about him his entire life. Now it’s time for him to step up to the plate and step out on faith!

I love this family. It was nice to read about some of the other family members from previous books. I enjoyed the way Reid and hid Wonder woman supported each other. I hope Willow and Harrison see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Conquering Fear

Reid and Brooklyn were the mirror images of each other. They both feared stepping out of the box. Together, they conquered the fear that was holding them back from a future they both wanted. Sometimes you just have to step out on faith. I really enjoyed Awaken Me.

Loved Awaken Me! I, like Reid and Brooklyn, have let fear hold me back and I have also lost my mother. This book was an emotional read for me, but.d I truly enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down because I enjoyed their journey.

Support and Family bonds.

This book is truly outstanding. I enjoyed reading from beginning to end. Having someone's support and encouragement helps all things come to be. The Family bond displayed with Holmes Family is something all Families need.

Reid and Brooklyn were a lot a like but also different. I hope there's more to their story. I feel like book ended abruptly!

I am not sure what I was expecting with this story, but this was not it. The story was slow at time but still OK. Reid and Brooklyn are very good together. I could feel how compassionate Reid was, but I was just expecting SOO much more romance between them. But I just felt like something was missing in this book. I felt like it wasn't finished when it ended. I was kind of disappointed when this story ended.

I came across this title completely by accident and was pleasantly surprised. I’ve read a few books set in NOLA but this one really made me want to visit. So, when my husband asked were I wanted to spend Spring Break the answer was easy, NOLA. One of the places I had to visit while there was the Creole Creamery and try the Lavender & Honey ice cream as featured in this book. While I am not fond of the smell of lavender I was surprised to learn that I liked the Lavender & Honey ice cream.
