Original review here When I saw there was a seuel to the Awakening I suealed I loved the Awakening so much I was so excited because this was Bridget s story Bridget became Claire s best friend uickly in the first book and helped her so much I loved her a lot From the get go we see that Bridget has some demons that haunt her every waking moment it seems While running and being distracted again by her demons Bridget literally runs into a man named Connor and his dog Lotus Bridget is immediately taken aback because he startled her and she hates that she is attracted to him She hasn t been attracted to a man in a long time She hates the way she treated Connor and she wants to apologize to him But things soon heat up between them unfortunately though the baggage between them may be too much for both of them I loved this book I knew Bridget would be a favorite and she was I loved her strong personality in the first book She never seemed to shy away from much and always spoke her mind But we learn that there is plenty she is hiding Bridget has a dark past that won t let go and ruins all her relationships She doesn t feel like the strong woman she lets people believe she is Connor can see that though He knows she is amazing and it is time for her to notice that too I loved Connor He was such a great guy who had a lot of patience where Bridget was concerned He knew things weren t going to be easy though Bridget however doesn t know whether to let he guard down yet with Connor She hopes he is not like the other guys she has been with But she doesn t know yet I loved the storytelling in this book and the character develpment When I was done I felt like I made new friends The characters were so well fleshed out I was rooting for Bridget to break down her walls because her and Connor were perfect for each other I loved the other story with one of Bridget s students Skylar Oh the hell this girl had to deal with She had to deal with uite the villain in this book The dean Dale of the college where Skylar is a student and Bridget teaches is pretty much run by Dale He is filthy rich and gets away with anything since he is so generous to the school It is rud he has had a few inappropiate relationships with the students but no one says or does anything Skylar however is than frightened because of her situation with him and Bridget finds that Dale plabs to put her in a similiar situation as well Dale is a master manipulator and holds things over their heads because he knows he can pull the strings to get it done They have to think fast on how they can take him down without ruining their careers and without letting Connor know I wanted to yell at the top of my lungs when she kept that from Connor but again this was Bridget We know Connor is perfect but she just couldn t admit it yet She was still behind that wall I knew this was going to be one smoldering book given how insanely sexy the first one was This was just as sexy Connor was mouthwatering and charming as hell I could clone him I was rooting for him to get Bridget to break down her walls I understand her situation but he was right in a lot of his estimations I think She hid so much of herself because of her past experience she pushes everyone aside It was amazing given that Connor is younger than Bridget but there were things he understood better than her She didn t just want him she needed him He laid things on the line for her when no one else had That is definitely something that she needed to help her become the woman she was meant to be I loved this book so much It goes from being sexy cute funny scary terrifying sad exhilarating and back to sexy again It really takes you through the roller coaster but you love it all the in the end I loved seeing Bridget and Connor go through this journey I am excited to see who is next I hope we get something with Bridget s friends Victor I really liked him and he seems to have a story to tell I loved all of her friends and the bond she created with Skylar who I hope we see of That girl deserves a happy ending Highly recommended if you want a sexy read that packs an emotional punch

Title ReflectionAuthor Elene SallingerPublisherYear Soucebooks Inc 5614Length 288 PagesSeries Chrysalis Series 2OverviewThe moment Bridget Ross and Connor Reynolds run into each other on the street uite literally while out on a run tempers flare But when the two get together for an apology coffee date it s clear that the coffee isn t the only thing steamingConnor is a charming artist without purpose His own tragic past prevents him from putting down roots or committing to anything Bridget is feisty but guarded She s aching to fill a void in her life but is wracked with guilt over her past and denies herself true pleasure Can this gorgeous man tempt Bridget to finally succumb to her desiresMy Thoughtsin this 2nd installment we get to know about Bridget and understand what makes her tick I think that we came to really enjoy her banter with Claire in the first book of the series so i was really happy to see what we were getting into here What i think that no one realized from book 1 is how damaged Bridget was and although it was years and years ago it s something that she s never processed and gotten past and it still really holds her back in just about everything in her lifeWhat we have is a story that takes us on a journey of Bridget realizing that what she wants isn t necessarily bad but that doesn t mean that she ll ever allow it to happen and as a result it means that she may never get anywhere with a relationship that seems to be goodWe also get the subplot of what s going on at Bridget s job between her and her dean and between her dean and various others I hate to say it but without the sub plot i wouldn t have been as invested as i was and while i really wanted to like this story than i did i felt it was mediocrei ll tell you where my frustration stems from We begin this story seeing into what darkness lies both within Bridget and Connor but we don t really get too deep there There are glimpses sure we understand a bit about why Connor has come to Vermont and how he s an artist but won t actually be one because of his parent s death but that s really just as far as we get into it with him Same goes for Bridget we learn about her past and while we see what stigma it s placed on her life we don t really process it together in the storyI wanted to really enjoy this book i feel like i gave it a fighting chance and it was mediocre at best I always feel bad when i don t enjoy a book since i know that authors take it personally but i feel like i owe it to myself to admit when i didn t love a book oh well maybe the series will get better i feel like we ll either get to know Victor or Skyler next and that may be really good i d love the back story on Victor to be completely honest part of me wishes that he and Bridget got together just sayin
