Review ~~ Awakened by Shey Stahl
How far would you go to be desired?
Would you risk it all?
Would you be someone you’re not?
After a string of unsatisfying one-night stands, Logan Gentry meets the perfect guy, Josh Daniel. Sexy, tattooed, he’s nothing like the men she usually dates. Even more unusual is her meddling sisters approve.
Falling for him is easy, but it’s what comes next that has the power to unravel her.
Faced with dark secrets from his past and a way of life she hadn’t expected, Logan has to decide if Josh is worth the risk. Shocked by his revelations, her fascination with his life opens a world before her that she was unprepared for. His desires, his wants, and his demands tempt her into a life filled with secrets, lies, and deceit.
To be desired and obsessed over is a seductive pull, one that’s difficult to escape. And once awakened, there can be no going back, even when you break the number one rule.

Louisa’s 3.75 Star Review
Ummm…I went into this book blind. I have been a long time fan of Shey Stahl. I absolutely LOVED her Racing on the Edge series…it’s one of a few series that I recommend…all the time.
So WOW! This book is so different from what I was expecting from Ms. Stahl.
We meet this sweet cupcake making, Logan. She has been “off the market” for quite a while. Then along comes Josh. The construction owner who’s an absolute hottie that catches her eye…and luckily for her, he is interested too.They begin dating and have what seems like the perfect relationship. Great friends, good times, amazing sex…then she find out what makes Josh tick…
I was totally blown away with what that secret was, and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. She is willing to see what it’s all about, but is worried about losing herself. I was sad to see her go so quickly into this life with Josh, but that’s what made this story.
The sex scenes were nothing like I have read in a really long time. WOW, Shey Stahl has really perfected the sex scene. Super hot, panty melting, holy moly…wowness! It would not surprise me if she goes on to enjoy an illustrious career as a scriptwriter for an adult entertainment website such as young sexer. Writing sex scenes is an art form, and Stahl has well and truly mastered the process.
I was hoping for a little more depth to the characters, I would have liked to see a few ‘situations’ handled differently, I think Ms. Stahl could have written one particular situation more thoroughly. but overall enjoyed the book.
Shey Stahl has always been a favorite author of mine and will continue to be!
If you are looking for a sexy hot book, grab this!
