Favorite Lines “Those traumas are like little pieces of shrapnel in your body. If you don’t dig them out, they’re going to keep hurting.”

“Remember, darling. It’s important that they never see you cry.”

“You can’t have us both. It’s either her or me. And it’s not only your happiness in the balance but ours, too. So think hard and choose well.”

“But she did have a choice, and she knew it went far beyond this moment. Did she want to spend the rest of her life holding people at arm’s length, suffering in her attempts to avoid pain, or did she want to take chances, to embrace all that life had to offer?”

“I choose to embrace all of life. I won’t run away.”

What a beautiful ending for this series! Lily started this book a shell of herself. She literally ran for over 40 yrs. She ran away from her self, her heart, and her fears. She decides to try and live again. Face the fact that Torren chose another woman. When she runs into she can't believe it but he doesn't know her!  
Vittoria can't believe Lily is back! When Torren demands his memories back she knows nothing will be the same. 
These three have one chance at happiness. Who knew that her friend getting kidnapped would open Lily's eyes!
This author did an amazing job of bring this series to an end. It made me sad to say goodbye but, it needed beautifully! 
I will keep an eye out for what the author does next. Her writing is spectacular!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (RBTL)



  1. Thanks so much for participating in the tour, Carrie, and for reading and reviewing AWAKENING 3! :)

  2. I can't remember the last one I read that was sci-fy paranormal. I think it was the Krinar Chronicles. Maybe?

  3. I think it was Fantastic Voyage by Isaac Asimov.
