REVIEW – Awakening by Elene Sallinger


AWAKENING is such a gentle love story. One woman’s introduction to BDSM. One man’s return to love after being widowed. The fact that their relationship unfolds in a book store adds an extra layer of sweetness. The tale unfolds SLOWLY, in an almost Victorian manner, yet set in the modern day. A courtship and introduction to new worlds for her, saying goodbye the the past for him. It’s a story not without frustration, pain, and avoidance. The seduction will be a bumpy, but meaningful one.

Old wounds surface and demand attention. That said, the title suggests the relationship between Claire and Evan is that exactly…an awakening…for both of them.

Fans of Cherise Sinclair will enjoy Awakening. Evan is a Dom with a hard past and a heart of gold. He has a flogger…carry on.
