Title: Reawakened Secrets
Series: Reawakened #1
Author: Mari Denae

I NEED book 2 like NOW! Intrigue, suspense and a plot that left me wanting more!
Some secrets should never be kept…
Growing up in the servant’s quarters at Haven Hill, Claire Brown was a poor outcast living in a world of money and privilege. Her only solace was best friend, Alice Sinclair and secret desire, Jackson Montgomery. Rich and connected, they were perfect in every way and perfect for each other.
Still, Claire was foolish enough to fall in love with Jackson, and desperate enough to hide it. When Alice found out, there was a terrible accident that left her in a coma. Jackson disappeared, leaving New Haven without even saying good-bye.
Ten years later, Claire has managed to build a life without them. So when Jackson calls out of nowhere to say Alice is awake, Claire’s first thought is Thank God. Her second? I’m screwed. Lusting after Jackson destroyed her. It’s nothing compared to what she’s hiding now.
But nothing stays hidden forever.
A great debut novel from Mari Denae! Although a relatively quick read for me (fast reader), the first instalment of the three part Reawakened Series certainly packed a punch! The characters had depth and personality. I particularly enjoyed how the story was told in the past and present giving me insight into the back story but giving me hope that book two is going to be full of explosive developments. I can’t wait to continue Claire and Jackson’s journey, like I said I NEED BOOK 2 NOW!
Would highly recommend. Can’t wait to see what more Mari Denae has to offer.

I am a married mother of three and publishing my first novel is a dream come true. As the nerd that went to bed with a flashlight to read the books I swiped from my mom’s room, I have always been an avid book lover. My favorites are hot, alpha male heroes (think Kristen Ashley), suspenseful, romantic thrillers (think Sandra Brown) and poignant, sweet love stories (think Abbi Glines or Colleen Hoover). My plan was always to be a writer of some sort, but somehow real life responsibilities got in the way. Now, I am an accountant with a night time writing obsession.
One Saturday afternoon, I took my girls to see the latest teenage movie. Four days later, I had read all four Twilight books. I was inspired by the innocent romance and 'Edward Cullen' (don't judge). Once I found my way to Fifty Shades of Grey, I was a complete goner. All my spare time was spent reading, writing or blogging. After version one million, five hundred and fifty five of my series Reawakened, I'm finally ready to share it and hope that someone enjoys reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. This one's for my mother. I hope she's looking down proud because I finally finished what I started.
