Awaited by Lynn Rush Review!
The voice is a powerful thing…
Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.
He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.

My problem with most books is that they start off too slow. That is not the case with Awaited. This book starts off with a pretty big bang, literally. From the very beginning and through the whole novel, the story is fast paced and like a roller coaster ride. There's a lot going on- in a good way. It was super hard to put the book down, even for a moment. It's one of those books that you basically read the whole way through because you can't possibly stop and not know what happens next. I feel that Lynn's writing really strengthened in this book. There's not one single thing I didn't love about it. In fact, I almost feel like rereading it already- that's just how much I loved it!
I have to applaud Lynn Rush. The chemistry between Belle and Russell was MAGNIFICENT! I've never "Awwww"ed so much over two characters. One of the best things about their relationship is how special it is. Not only in the paranormal way, but in the way they communicate. Russell is so tender and sweet. (Where can I get me one of those?) I love how Belle alternates between a vulnerable and strong female character. It was great seeing her development throughout the story. I felt a lot more connected to these two characters, than I did Beka and David, although I was happy when they made tiny appearances in Awaited. And Jessica, too! We also meet new characters, Rain in particular, who I hope is in book 3 because I really liked her.
Like book 1, Awaited has a lot of Paranormal aspects within. This story was very interesting. The plot was very entertaining and exciting, as well as unique.
Anxiously awaiting book 3! Awaited ended in the perfect way to set up for the next novel!
I recommend this book to any paranormal lover that enjoys an action and romance filled tale with a unique twist!
A big thank you to the author for providing a review copy!
