Original review here When I saw there was a seuel to the Awakening I suealed I loved the Awakening so much I was so excited because this was Bridget s story Bridget became Claire s best friend uickly in the first book and helped her so much I loved her a lot From the get go we see that Bridget has some demons that haunt her every waking moment it seems While running and being distracted again by her demons Bridget literally runs into a man named Connor and his dog Lotus Bridget is immediately taken aback because he startled her and she hates that she is attracted to him She hasn t been attracted to a man in a long time She hates the way she treated Connor and she wants to apologize to him But things soon heat up between them unfortunately though the baggage between them may be too much for both of them I loved this book I knew Bridget would be a favorite and she was I loved her strong personality in the first book She never seemed to shy away from much and always spoke her mind

storytelling in this book and the character develpment When I was done I felt like I made new friends The characters were so well fleshed out I was rooting for Bridget to break down her walls because her and Connor were perfect for each other I loved the other story with one of Bridget s students Skylar Oh the hell this girl had to deal with She had to deal with uite the villain in this book The
