♥Promo + Review + Giveaway♥ AWAKENING by Samantha Long




Title: Awakening
Author: Samantha Long
Genre: Paranormal Romance




When Sophie moves to Boston to get away from the people who ridiculed her for her psychic talents, she wants to start fresh. But when a demon attacks her study group at the library, she has no choice but to reveal her abilities to warn the others.

She learns the attacks won’t stop until she’s dead. To stay alive she joins forces with the other students and a secret society that has battled the demons for centuries.

The last thing she wants to do is be a pawn in the war of good and evil. When her visions start showing events from a past life, she can’t ignore the connections it shows. She has no choice but to acknowledge the bonds that tie her to the other students, even if some of them refuse, to have the strength to defeat the demon that hunts them down.


Will she survive long enough to stop the demons from destroying everything and everyone she loves?














I’m a multitasking mom of four.  When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle.  If you can’t find me in front of the computer, I’m most likely watching my DVR.

​I’ve been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled “If I was an Indian”.  My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief.  Racy, I know.

​Of the things I’m addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list.  My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter.  Few of many I love.

​Thanks so much for reading!

This book is a definite must read!! I could not put this book down once I started it!! Which is really bad…considering I have two kids and two dogs. When they dogs are both at my feet staring me down doing the potty dance in place…time to put the book down!!

The characters are a group of students who have special gifts. They must join their special gifts together to save the world against demons. The lead character, Sophie, has a very special gift. She is an empath. She can feel the emotions of everything around her and sense when danger is near. I love that she is such a strong young woman. The longer the story continues, she gets stronger and stronger. Samantha did a wonderful job of describing the characters, the scenery, and especially the demons! I love to feel like I am there watching the whole thing go down!

This book was amazing. If you love paranormal books with lots of action, this is your book! I can’t wait for the next book to see where this goes. Samantha was flawless in her delivery of this story. I laughed, I cried, I hated, I got angry, and then I was satisfied. 


Wickedly Fantastic!!




Movement caught her gaze. Tristan stalked forward, his motions flowed, cat like.
            She stood, frozen.  His eyes paralyzed her with their predatory gleam.  If this was a war, she’d lost weeks ago.
            He stopped right in front of her.  Tempted her with his closeness.  He placed his hands on either side of her neck.
            Warmth immediately permeated her body and her lips parted.  Blood thundered in her ears.
            Then, his lips touched hers.  It wasn’t a sweet, I-missed-you kiss.  He pressed his body into hers, invading her senses, and poured all his pent up frustration into it.
            A tear slipped down her cheek even as she kissed him back.  His hurt flowed into her.
            She’d made him feel used.
            Before she had time to process all of this, he pulled back.  Accusation shone in his eyes.  A low growl rumbled in his throat.  The animal in him prowled right underneath the surface.
            It was time for the end battle.  No matter how this ended, it would be final.  They’d either make up or hate each other forever.
