Awakening by Ashley Suzanne Blog Tour


Mira’s broken and battered. She’s fighting to put herself back together while her heart is trying to forget. Can she continue moving forward with one man while in love with another?

Skylar’s wrestling demons he never imagined in his wildest dreams. The girl he’s been in love with for years finally has feelings for him. There’s only one problem: her heart might lie somewhere else. How long until his will power shatters?

Who will seize Mira’s heart and never let go? Will these feelings ever go away or will they be an AWAKENING?

5 stars

Awakening is by far my favorite book!! Besides mentally yelling at Mira, throughout the whole book, I wanted with her Sky, not Danny! When Mira was in the hospital Danny made a friend and her name was Melissa, which whom, he confided in. In Awakening Mira has changed. She's engaged to someone who she loves, but she's also in love with Danny's best friend Sky! There were times where she didn't know who the hell she wanted to be with, and it wound up hurting both Danny, and Skylar. Danny and Skylar's friendship is pretty much ruined because they are both in love with Mira, Mira is hurt because she wants to be with Sky but he keeps pushing her into Danny's arms. Once Mira realizes that she wants to be with Sky, of course Danny is hurt by it, but respects Mira's decision. I did a happy dance when she and Sky get together. Mira soon see's that it's not all a dream, it's real, and her feelings for Sky are real! It makes me happy that at the end, Danny finds his one, Melissa. Sky had Mira and well now I just need to find out who Kylee is going to end up with. I can't wait for the next book!!

I continue to giggle all the way down the hall and into the elevator. As soon as we hit the
elevator, the proximity of Skylar to my humming body really hits home and I feel a sudden wave of
arousal. I haven’t felt this way since I woke up, not even with Danny. Glancing over at Skylar, I can see
him fidgeting around.

As I’m looking at him, he turns to face me, and I can see the arousal in his eyes. He casually licks
his lips and shoves his hands into the pockets of his jeans. I smile and turn back to face the front of the
elevator. I have him right where I want him.

When the elevator descends to the first floor, I’m smacked in the face with the gravity of my
reality. Danny is waiting for the doors to open, with a huge smile on his face. Glancing back to Skylar, I see that he’s been smacked just as hard. Skylar’s Adam’s apple bobs in his throat, like he’s trying to

swallow his feelings, and moves past me toward Danny.

Review:  ~by Tyler

I am absolutely blown away by this book! I couldn't believe how good this book was. When I first started reading it, I was sad and I even cried for Mira. I think I cried more times in this book than I have in any books I've read. I love, Skylar, he is my favorite. He's sweet and he's strong. When I was towards the end of the book, I was really confused. I went back a chapter and reread it just to make sure I didn't miss anything. I didn't  Once I finished Mirage, I understood completely. I shouted, 'No, it can't end like this!!' Now I'm on to the next. All I have to say is, well played Suzanne, well played. :) 



Danny Thomas has never the boy who got the girl. All through high school, he sat in the back seat and watched his best friend, Skylar McBride, in all his crowning glory. The girls always flocked to Skylar, leaving Danny the third wheel.

Everything changes the first day of college, when Danny meets Mira Adams and she completely steals his heart. She's the only girl that ever chose Danny.

Through the ups and downs of college, Danny and Mira's relationship blossoms into something truly beautiful. A relationship that dreams are made of. 
The bond of four friends: Danny, Skylar, Mira and Kylee is tested one fateful night when an accident changes everything.

Inception immediately follows the first book in the Destined Series, Mirage and showcases Danny's point of view during those four years that almost ended the night of graduation.

To understand the full story, you have to go back to the beginning: The Inception

Review:  ~by Tyler

5 stars 
When I started to read Inception, I truly didn't want to read about Danny, but I did. I loved reading about how Danny and Mira met and fell in love with one another. I enjoyed the book. The friendship between Sky and Mira started to form as well during this book, and I could tell they loved each other, but not as much as she loved Danny. By the end of this book, I was in tears! TEARS I tell ya! This was really good. It helped explain questions that I had about the first book. Now it all makes sense. So now I NEED to find out what happens next.
