Ashleigh Giannoccaro is a master at writing disturbing tales! Awake spins a sick and twisted web about a man totally and completely obsessed with a woman who has no idea she is being stalked. Poor Ivy thinks she is going crazy when things in her apartment are moved and out of place. She starts questioning herself and doesn’t understand what is happening. Little does she know that Kian is sneaking in at night watching her, touching her, kissing her. I loved the suspenseful tone throughout the story. You know what is happening is wrong, but you cannot stop reading and wondering what will happen next. I’ll be making sure all my windows and doors are locked tonight, I'll give you that! Cannot wait for the next piece of this!

Shes's even more beautiful sleeping than when she is awake. Looking down on her, the way the silk of her nightie melts onto her skin, outlining her curves, I'm tempted to reach out and touch it. I want to know which is softer, her skin or that black silk?

"That guy was a little intense. But, damn was he hot. I bet he's an animal in bed." She's the most inappropriate friend ever.
"Shh, Mish." I say, giving her the eyeball.
"Don't shhh me, he touched you. Did you hear that gruff, sexy as all hell voice. Don't tell me you wouldn't want to listen to him saying dirty things to you."

She shifts slightly, rolling herself over towards me, her body dragging the small garment down, exposing her chest. Her perfect rounded breasts and nipples are right there in front of me, a temptation too hard to fight. I don't touch them, not right away. I just look at her. How stunning she is.

Publisher's Synopsis

"Maybe next time I kiss you, you'll be awake."

When a handsome man walks into her life, Ivy falls hard. He quickly fills her dreams at night, and her thoughts during the day. But, when dreams and reality blur, is a dangerous grey area.

Kian can't sleep at night, but watching Ivy as she slumbers has become his addiction -- even before he met her.
