Awakening the Willow’s Heart is a romance like no other, its not the young love moved away and found love again type its a love story that goes on for a while before it hits them both in the face.
Miya Jenkins comes from a very troubled home where no one gives her any sort of affection or loves her, so she turns to the only real people who have ever cared about her … the Walkers. Her best friends, Cate and Caden, are amazing they always have her back no matter what and their parents treat her like one of there own.
She is super smart, very dedicated to her education, and has focused on getting some success. Miya soon learns to trust her gut instincts but never will she relinquish any control, all the while she is enjoying what her life and some guys have to offer.
Trust is an extremely hard thing to come by, and Miya full out refuses to open up her heart ever again. Like the very willow tree under which she had lost her innocence, she may bend but will not break.
Caden Walker has always been there for her, always her protector, always a huge comfort, but always has wanted much much more.
Miya is refusing to reveal her real and true inner self, not even to Caden, and she is certainly not willing to mess up their life long friendship. All she wants is a normal happy life, to have an anchor one who will be her’s one that she can be safe in there arms.
But can anyone ever tear down this high wall she has built around her hardened heart?
Is it possible the walls that she has is beginning to crumble beneath that willow tree?
Awakening the Willow’s Heart is the first book iv read by Jacqueline Anne, i had been hearing great things about her books, and those who told me about her where spot on. I enjoyed this book i loved Cate and Caden there friendship with Miya was superb and just what anyone in real life would want.
Miya is a wounded soldier … i felt so bad for her i could feel her emotions pour right through the book which made me sad. I so loved her inner strength.
Caden aww bless he is for sure Miya White Knight, he is sexy hot and has a heart of gold even though both of them make some obvious mistakes, which only makes them more human.
One thing i really wanted was for them to both admit their attraction to each other, and to get on with their relationship that both of them wanted but didn’t admit.
They both missed so many great moments to admit how they really felt. I found that i was getting frustrated with them….. I just wanted to crawl through the book and give them a talking to.
The other thing i would have liked is some more romantic times between them both.
