She’s reawakening

His desire!

In the latest superhot tale from reader-favorite author Rachael Stewart, business owner Olivia Carmel is embracing her wild side, and PR expert Valentine Boretti has been called upon to rein her in. But instead, Olivia is driving him wild…for her!

Seeing a client naked is no way to start a working relationship—especially when that client is stunningly sensual Olivia Carmel. When she invites me to watch her BDSM session in London’s most hedonistic sex club, she thinks I’m a stranger, not a PR expert sent to rein her in.

Watching Olivia awakens a hunger I can’t allow myself to feel. There’s no way I can work with her! But when she crashes her luxury car, I can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for her recklessness to turn fatal. She may kill me when she recognizes me…and when she learns a man sixteen years her junior has been hired to curtail her bad behavior.

I’m here to reawaken Olivia’s careful, rational nature. But instead she’s reawakening my desire…showing me just how well we work together in and out of the bedroom. As we fulfill each other’s naughtiest fantasies, and share our deepest longings, I realize I’m feeling more for my wayward client than lust. But can I convince Olivia to take a chance on love?

Take control. Feel the rush. Explore your fantasies—Harlequin DARE publishes sexy romances featuring powerful alpha males and bold, fearless heroines exploring their deepest fantasies.

First Impression

Reawakened is set in the 1st person. The viewpoints of both Olivia Carmel and Valentine Boretti are given.

The reader is introduced to 45 year old Olivia, as she sits at the DareDevils bar, throwing back a shot of Vodka. She is angry, her husband of 20 years has died and she now is amongst men and women, who scream sex in wild abandonment…in all states of undress. when the bar tender tells her that her room is ready she asks him to lead the way anticipating what lies ahead…

The reader is introduced to Valentine, who is at the same bar. Valentine works as a PR guru and he is here to help Olivia as after the death of her husband a year ago, as a favour to his friend and mentor. Olivia’s PR image at her company and charity as a celebrity entrepreneur has been going downhill…Valentine is here to get Olivia back on track.

Will Valentine be able to bring Olivia back to the better version of herself…I am looking forward to finding out!

Rating: 4 out of 4.

Reawakened is a detailed fast paced sexually charged story that is well written and enjoyable read, that pulls you in from the first page…

I like how Stewart has created headers above each point of view so there is no confusion over who it is about. Throughout the engaging character driven plot, Stewart has created a realistic twist that makes the story and characters more interesting….

The character development of Reawakened is good. The chemistry and attraction between Olivia and Valentine is apparent from the moment they see eachother. I really liked how independent Olivia was and developed a good connection with her. I also like how they both helped each other overcome their dramatic pasts and was pleased with the outcome!

I would recommend reading Reawakened to lovers of Contemporary Romance and Mills and Boon, as it is a sensual and steamy story that is filled with hot and erotic kinks involving a emotionally interesting relationship between a older woman and a younger man…
