Blog Tour: Beautifully Awake by Riley Mackenzie

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 2, 2013

Diagnosis: Sleep-running
Treatment: Truth
Prognosis: Beautifully Awake

Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small town social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced to start over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow her father’s advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a new city, taking on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing so, she gets something she never expected, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at life in the hospital.

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.

“Baby, I want to sleep with you.” His voice softened. “This isn’t about sex. This is about sleeping ... with you ... in our bed, just sleeping, no talking. Just silence, me listening to your soft breaths. That’s truth.” And once again this man had completely disarmed me with words alone. “See you soon, baby.”

Silence filled my ear. I turned and dropped my phone on the bed.
"You're not going to tell him, huh?" Sierra raised her eyebrows and frowned.
"I don't know, but I'm definitely not ready tonight."
"This thing with Dr. Hot-as-Balls is serious, isn't it?"
I couldn't help but nod. My gut told me she wasn't wrong.

10 Awesome Sizzling Stars
10 Sizzling BURNING THE PAGES Hearts for Heat!!

OH where do I start? What a freaking ride! Like from the first encounter this couple exploded with chemistry. Chase reacted with such intensity to Lili ..his "Blue" . At first I was like ..does he hate her? But then BAM to the BAM (Trademarked by Tara) ..this book burned up my Kindle. This guy had it all. All my ✓ boxes! Dirty Talker? OMG like freaking FILTHY and I LOVED EVERY DIRTY WORD HE SAID!
He was Arrogant, Cocky, Jealous..oh boy super Posessive. Hell forget burning your bra...just let him do what he freaking wants all day long! 

“That’s four. I’ll surprise you for five, but number six, I’m back inside.” 
  That's right..counting O's hot hot.

So you get this book was hot right?
That's not the part that won me over. ( Ok so yea it had a big part OK? I mean Sizzling Pages...yea I like it hot) ..but really that wasn't the whole reason.
This story had such emotional freaking depth. I mean these two characters lived through pure and utter hell in their pasts. Things that would normally destroy most people. They didn't stay down. Both lead lives that helped people..even though they were hiding or "sleep walking" through life.. Two damaged souls crashing into each other and neither would ever be the same again. 

"Fifteen fucking years I slept through life. Now I’m fucking living it, wide awake.” Chase
There was a time when I wanted to beat the hell out of Chase but when all the secrets and past "truth" came out, all I could do was just cry. My heart broke for both of them.
These two finally gave in and gosh the love that they shared was so beautiful. 

I loved the other characters in this book. Lili's BFF Sierra was a freaking RIOT ..she cracked me up. Then Asher he was swoonalishish! I can't wait for his book and YEP I called it..I am telling you him and Kate ..I just know it!
I really want a Guy book too! Like Guy and those dimples..yum!
The authors Riley MacKenzie definitely have a knack for writing scenes with so many emotions. I look forward to more from them. I swooned, laughed, yelled and cried during this book and I would not change one moment of any of those emotions. The only thing I'd love is some miracle to be able to read the deleted scenes in the epilogue. Yep I read the acknowledgments and ladies. GIMMEE!! PLEASE!!! I want more!! More Chase..gosh his POV was the icing on the HEA cupcake!!
Ok needless to say I found this book when I needed it the most. Hot scenes, passionate beautiful love story and one sizzling read that will stay with me quite somet time.
Read this book!

Truth:   I loved this love story!! It had everything I love in it:

Possessive Alpha Male (oh yeah, who just so happens to be a hot sexy doctor, with his own skeletons in his closet!) who also happens to be very caring and generous.

     #2 -
 A strong female, fighting to overcome past heartaches, not giving up.

Awesome best friends - you will love the conversations between Lili
             and Sierra, not to mention Chase's best friend Asher and their
             brotherly relationship.

     #4 -
 Hot sex scenes (this should probably be #1!!)

     #5 -
 A couple who truly love each other struggling to survive the past,
             forgiving themselves and learning how to live for today.

You definitely don't want to miss reading this beautiful love story.  I can't wait to read the next book that's going to let us in to Asher's life!!

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!
