Review ~ Forbidden Awakening by Lisa Bilbrey

Forbidden Awakening (Awakenings Series, #1)Forbidden Awakening by Lisa Bilbrey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great journey about Elle and Sadie who are not only in love with each other, but they fall in love with two other men, making them a four person relationship. Elle is afraid and in doubt of a lot of things, but Sadie, Callum, and Derek show her she deserves to be loved and happy. They take us through the disapproval of parents to gathering some understanding.

The characters are well done and I loved them all. And the romance … It’s steamy and hot and sweet and not overly done at all. It worked for this story and for the lovers.

I love all of Bilbrey’s writings, so I wasn’t one bit surprised to add this to my top shelf of books read for the year. So, if you like a good love story with multiple partners, steamy, hot romance, and some amazing characters then this is a must read.



Elle Reid and Sadie Williams are best friends, turned lovers. Always considering themselves to be friends with benefits, they opt to let loose and celebrate after landing a high-profile project with the best architecture firm in San Francisco.

Callum Davis and Derek Flores have been best friends since they met at college. While they’ve admitted their attraction to each other, neither have the courage to act on their feelings, both fearful of losing their friendship. At least, not until they meet Elle and Sadie at Club Venom.

Elle, Sadie, Callum, and Derek embark on a life-changing journey that defies what society tells them is normal. But when you find yourselves in love with multiple partners, how do you choose? And what will happen when their families find out about their unconventional relationship? Is their forbidden awakening worth unraveling the secrets they’ve been keeping?
