Title: Beautifully Awake (Beautifully Awake #1)
Author: Riley Mackenzie Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+
Publication Date: September 26, 2013
Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.
Prognosis: Beautifully Awake
Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more than physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three years of sleep running and leave you beautifully awake
Where to start...ok...Chase...sigh....seriously...Chase is AWESOME! You get to see the whole Alpha male in a different way. Chase is a surgeon so he has to have confidence and control. He takes that into his personal life with Lili but at the same time he has a softer unsure side too. You see it sometimes when he talks to her. I am not a huge fan of the jealousy but hey that can be overlooked in this case.
Now, Lili is awesome too. She is strong and independent and I love that Chase just kind of sweeps her off her feet. She has been going along fine but when he walks in she is a goner. I love that he takes care of her b/c after everything she has been through she deserves it. I also like that she is pretty down to earth about it. I don't feel like she was ever trying to take advantage.
Go get this book! I am giving it 4.3 stars out of 5. I love Chase and Lili and let me tell you I can't wait for Asher's story!!!

Prognosis: Beautifully Done
He vows to live for the moment because it’s the only time he owns. The past is beyond his control and the future may not exist. With his only loyalties being his family, he thrives for that edge where plunging over is always in the realm of possibility.
When a beautiful familiar face tilts his axis, he re-examines everything and realizes that second chances are overrated and a lifetime of firsts are irreplaceable. In the end, it’s not her medical degree but his trust that needs to prove that the ride together is worth it ... until it’s Beautifully Done.
***Author's note*** Contains spoilers from Beautifully Awake. We highly recommend reading Chase and Lili's story first. For readers 18+
I absolutely loved Beautifully Awake. Chase and Lili were awesome and I am glad that I got to see a little bit more of them in this book. I really liked Asher in that book and honestly he just makes me fall in love with him in this book. I was not real happy about Talia in the beginning of this book but I am so glad that I stuck in out. This book was all over emotionally for me. I mean there was so much explained and I ended up really rooting for these two. I really hate wanting to write more but I am always afraid of spoiling something for you. There are so many things that are great about Ash and Talia but I want you to find out for yourself.
Go get this book!! Make sure you read Beautifully Awake first. I am giving this book 4.3 stars out of 5!

About the Authors
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
