Book Review: 'Awakening Veronica' by Heather Rainier


Love can be hard to find and but it’s even harder when those who should be there to support you are the ones who continue to put you down. Veronica learned this lesson early in life. As a result, she’s deeply introverted but comes alive when she’s writing. That is until she’s reunited with a special man from her past. Travis, who with the help of his best friend, one Sheriff Hank Stinson, teaches Veronica that there’s freedom and strength in surrender. Can Veronica let herself believe in the attraction that the two men have for her? Letting go of her past, Veronica must learn to trust those around her, and especially Hank and Travis. The three are wonderful together but will Veronica trust her heart or will she continue to hide away from the world?
I can never get enough of the true love that is found in this series. Heather Rainier does a wonderful job of keeping these books fresh and pulling the reader into the wonderful world that she has created. Hank and Travis are great men. The two fight for and with Veronica. Never letting her forget how they feel and that so many others care for her as well. I loved seeing Veronica come out of her shell and become the woman she was always meant to be. The love that the three share shines brightly right from the start and watching them work through everything made for a great read.
I loved seeing everyone at the ranch and in Divine rally around Veronica when she needed the help and I have to say that Kemp and Duke stole the scenes that they were in for me. I loved Kemp and his duct tape. I also enjoyed visiting with many of the characters from previous books. It is nice to see everyone interacting and still being part of the stories making this reader feel as if I were visiting with good friends and family with each story. This book works fine as a stand-alone but there are quite a few reoccurring characters. Readers who look for books with strong alpha men and women who find strength in love and friendships should read this book.
