My Review of The One Awakened by Alexandra North.


The Plot.
Book 1 in The One Trilogy

It began a decade ago with a spilt drink and a missed opportunity amongst two people destined to be together. Now ten years on, sexually frustrated Lucia Myers is seeing her friend as though it were the first time…

Everything changed that Tuesday night when Lucia Myer’s millionaire best friend Sebastian Silver returned home after months working abroad. She took one look at his spine-tingling face and in that moment he stole her breath away, for the second time in a decade…

As a single-mother, her priorities have changed; the only man in he life is her 3year old son Finn. Encouraged by her girlfriends she’s begun to date, but now, staring at Seb with fresh eyes, his appearance suddenly unfamiliar to her and physique making her mouth water - Lu decides that he should be the one to encourage her inner wantonness. What were friends for - if not to help when one was in need?

She forms a plan… a proposition of sorts; one night of pleasure, I’m open to anything, with no ties - the text reads. It couldn’t have been simpler.

She wants to be awakened by someone she can truly trust; one with a skilled repertoire with the ladies and one who will never want more from her – cue Sebastian - the ultimate alpha player!

Sebastian accepts her offer, but only on his terms, introducing rules that she must adhere to. He decides where, when, and that one night would not be enough to truly take Lucia to new heights and show her how it should be really be done! One month it is then…

The heat between them is scorching; the constant fight for control undeniable, as they struggle between the blurred lines of the term ‘mates’. Together they sizzle, but apart they are broken. They must become strangers, and forget their friendship to become lovers, for Lucia to fulfill her desires and for Sebastian to awaken her in a way no other man has achieved.

Soon their time will come to an end; can they ever go back to just being friends?
Forces from their past and present try to destroy their future and all the while, Lucia has this feeling that she is being watched, by another…

The One awakened is romantic, seductive, witty, full of angst, and will make you wish you had your very own Sebastian Silver to proposition.

My Review. 
  The One Awakened (One Trilogy, #1)The One Awakened by Alexandra North
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was sent this as an arc in return for an honest review.
So here we go!

Lucia is a single mum to a beautiful 3 year old boy called Finn and he is her whole world along with her passion for designing.
She split from her ex partner of ten years who treated her like complete rubbish and she is a happy girl except all her friends think she should jump back on the man train!

Enter her best friend Sebastian who has been away for the last year.
He is her little boys godfather and they both have such a great friendship.

One night Lucia surprises herself by inviting Sebastian to become lovers for just one night, she trusts him more than anyone and she knows he will look after her.
After some thought he knows it cannot happen for just one night and tells her they will need a month or more!

The crazy journey that develops will leave you with all kinds of emotions, in fact I'll be surprised if there is any emotion you don't feel during this wonderful and clever read!

This book is brilliant, it captures you from the start,
The characters are believable and deep.
The chemistry the pair give off is incredible!
The friends to lovers story line has been done before but this story is unique and you will love it just like i did!

I will definately recommend.
Very much enjoyed!
