BLOG TOUR: Waking Up by Renee Dyer

For Adriana Monroe life couldn't get any better.  She has great friends, her photography business is booming and she married Alex, her childhood best friend.  Life is perfect.  It’s a fairy tale really.
But one night changes everything for her.
Suddenly she’s alone.  She’s afraid to trust and afraid to love.  Most of all she’s afraid she’s broken beyond repair.  Nightmares torment and haunt her every time she closes her eyes.
Will she ever be the same?
For Tucker Stavros it looks to the outside world like things come easy for him.  He’s gorgeous, rich, famous, has a hot girlfriend.  Hell, he’s a movie star.  If women aren’t trying to get with him then men are wishing they are him.  What they don’t see is the broken child hiding behind the smiles he fakes for the cameras.  They don’t see the man who wakes up drenched in sweat from his nightmares from a past he can’t escape.
Betrayal sends him running.
A chance encounter throws Tucker and Adriana together.  They try to fight their attraction for each other.  They feel they’re too broken for the other.
Will they continue to suffer in the hell of dreamland separately or will they find that Waking Up to real life together can be so much sweeter?

Wow, the feels you get from reading this book, you go through so many emotions and often all at once you feel Adriana's pain over the death of her husband Alex. She shuts everybody out not willing to hear his name or even touch her friends and keeping them from touching her without going into a panic/anxiety attack that cripples her. 

We meet movie star Tucker Stavros, who also knows pain, heartbreak, devastation. His girlfriend of two years who is also a tv star betrayed him and he is over everything so he gets into his truck and takes off for no where in particular.

Somehow he ends up in Adriana's driveway, where from the moment they meet they start changing without even releasing it, helping each other with there pain and demons breaking down each other, not sure what to do with these feelings they are getting especially Adriana.

She feels guilty that she is betraying Alex and the love they had for each other, its absolutely heartbreaking the emotional turmoil she goes through on a daily basis and how it affects Tucker who finds himself feeling more for her everyday. 

The sex is pretty hot, but I think its more about the emotions people grow through and the way they handle that grief, I loved that its a dual POV and also you get to hear Adriana's friends they have a chapter each, you get the experience there pain over losing there friend Alex but also Adriana. You will fall in love with all the characters, the story the flow, the feels you get from it you won't regret it. I need more, I need to know how Tucker's and Adriana's story ends I need book 2.
