For Adriana Monroe life couldn’t get any better. She has great friends, her photography business is booming and she married Alex, her childhood best friend. Life is perfect. It’s a fairy tale really.

But one night changes everything for her.

Suddenly she’s alone. She’s afraid to trust and afraid to love. Most of all she’s afraid she’s broken beyond repair. Nightmares torment and haunt her every time she closes her eyes.

Will she ever be the same?

For Tucker Stavros it looks to the outside world like things come easy for him. He’s gorgeous, rich, famous, has a hot girlfriend. Hell, he’s a movie star. If women aren’t trying to get with him then men are wishing they are him. What they don’t see is the broken child hiding behind the smiles he fakes for the cameras. They don’t see the man who wakes up drenched in sweat from his nightmares from a past he can’t escape.

Betrayal sent him running.

A chance encounter throws Tucker and Adriana together. They try to fight their attraction for each other. They feel they’re too broken for the other.

Will they continue to suffer in the hell of dreamland separately or will they find that Waking Up to real life together can be so much sweeter?

I really enjoyed this book. It was not at all what I was expecting. I loved that we got dual point of views; it was different because the author gave you some scenes from both of the character point of view and a lot of the times they were thinking the same (dirty) things! This book causes a wide range of emotions, I was crying, laughing, and needing to fan myself down. This is Adriana, a widowed photography, and Tucker’s, a famous TV actor, story.

Both of the characters have been hurt in the past in totally different ways. Adriana lost the love of her life in a tragic accident and is having a hard time moving forward. You feel her pain, when she thinks of past memories and all the future plans she had that will now not happen. Tucker walked in on his girlfriend with his co-star and decided that he needs to get from his life. I really felt the need to punch Victoria in the face. In his adventure of leaving his life behind he ends up in Epping in Adriana’s driveway. There is an instant connection (emotional and sexual) between the two and they let their walls down with each other. They both open up very quickly. They both are good for each other and helping one in other heal. But can they both put the past behind them and find a future together?

I still can’t believe this is the author’s debut novel. I am so excited for the sequel and what else she comes out with in the future! She has new fan in me. Go one-click this book you will not be sorry!!
