Reawakened – Rachael Stewart

This book contains:

  • off page character deaths
  • explicit sex scenes
  • some coarse language.

Olivia is a CEO who lost her husband a year ago and since then has been living her life as if any moment could be her last. She’s confident, successful and knows what she wants.

Valentine, however, is the PR expert who’s been hired to reign in Olivia before she kills herself or permanently destroys the reputation of the charity her and her husband founded. He’s gone through his own trauma with his wife dying seven years previously.

Olivia is spiralling out of control and Valentine is called in right as she takes the plunge in a BDSM club. That one night and the events that follow set the tone for Oliva and Valentine’s entire relationship.

As they work together, their attraction is undeniable and of course it’s not long until it comes out in all the ways it shouldn’t and they learn more about each other than they every thought possible.

Rachael has a tendency to create compelling, sexual stories that capture the very essence that a lot of us wish for. Many of us wish for that instant attraction, the chemistry you just can’t deny. But most of us never get there.

Yet, even amongst those aspects, she always includes a theme. A theme that’s powerful and needs to be heard. While she has included the family violence theme before, she hasn’t done the angle where you’re willing to go along with it because it makes you happy too.

In that way, this is a new angle that also shows how subtle the control can be that still forms a part of family violence. The problem is, where’s the line between wanting to be a better person for someone and it being family violence?

That very question is why I love the fact that Rachael brings it up in her books and makes us think about it. If we can’t think about it, we can’t talk about it. And if we can’t talk about it, we can’t improve on it.

Author Bio

Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.

She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
