  Sunny's Review:

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!!!

Title:  Beautifully Done (Beautifully Awake #2) 
Author: Riley Mackenzie 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+ 
Publication Date:  July 16, 2014


Diagnosis: Borrowed time 
Treatment: Trust 
Prognosis: Beautifully Done

Asher Craig drives fast, flies high, and screws hard. But make no mistake, he’s a gentleman. He learned way too young that we’re all on borrowed time. Fair or unfair, you only get one ride.

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+

  Sunny's Review:

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

author picture
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!

We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.

It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).

When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school. Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?

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!
