´*•.¸(*•.¸ BOOK SYNOPSIS ¸.•*)¸.•*´
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 sent 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?
*•.¸ ARC PROVIDED FOR OUR HONEST REVIEW ¸.•*
When heartthrob movie star, Tucker Stavros, gets wronged by his girlfriend on the last day of shooting, Tucker grabs two duffel bags of clothes and hits the road. Staying in Vancouver was too devastating for Tucker knowing the cast and crew knew of Victoria’s indiscretions.
Tucker found himself in Epping, New Hampshire. Tucker became acquainted with Adriana, a widow of sixteen months. Adriana was also infatuated with Tucker. Tucker stayed with Adriana and became friends with her friends. Tucker helped Adriana to get over the death of her husband, Alex.
Renee Dyer writes with passion. Her characters seem like my friends too. I can’t wait to read the conclusion of Tucker and Adriana’s story in Eyes Wide Open.
