WARNING: This book contains sensitive material such as sexual content, abuse, and/or violence.

Nerina has lived all her life as a mermaid, fascinated by humans and land but also repulsed by sex and unable to understand love. Her curiosity gets her captured by a human male intent on awakening her lust and turning her human. But Nerina doesnโ€™t believe the legend is real and fears Kyros will kill her when he learns she canโ€™t transform.

I never read anything about mermaids, mostly because a part of me was afraid I wouldn’t have enjoyed these creatures as much as the others, but I’ve always been curious about them. Then Awakening came my way and I discovered a unique, pleasurable world . . .

The legend about mermaids that can be turned into humans if the right pleasure is awaken within them it’s simply charming, but the psychological part is terribly intriguing. Is Nerina being forced in her change, or is that what she really wants from the very beginning? She was captured and taken away from her family, everyone should feel sorry for her just for this, right? Yet, in some way you keep having that feeling she’s in the right place . . . She’s really conflicted and can’t believe she can even think about leaving the sea forever. And for what? For lust and passion? It’s simply unacceptable. Still, the more you read, the more you feel the change like a desperate need, just like her craving for Kyros . . . He knows what he wants, how to kindle the flame of passion in Nerina, but he’s patient during the whole process and this is what makes him appear even sexier!

The big pleasure you get by reading Awakening is the perfect example of how it’s a matter of quality and not quantity that makes a story powerful and unforgettable.

    Your review has me interested. I can't remember the last time I read a mermaid story. Actually, I probably never have.

  2. Fantastic review! I soooo agree with everything you say. I always find it a bit hard to review her work and get all of the feelings out, because it's just so hard to explain, but you're awesome at it. ๐Ÿ™‚
