Hey guys! So I’m currently on a small road trip to my dads and was able to finish “Stella’s Awakening” by RK Ryde. 🙂 It’s an erotica book with a bit of a twist. It took me a bit to read this, not because it’s a bad book but because of how close to home it got me and how long i felt it was. I kept wanting to stop and just shake my head lol.  I will only give out one spoiler and I promise it isn’t going to ruin the book for you! So if you don’t want to know this small spoiler don’t read whats in red down below. 😉 I give Stella’s Awakening 4-5 stars. The story is really good, descriptions are great!! Definitely lives up to its genre of erotica novel. Only thing to me is that I felt the book was dragging a bit. It took me about a week to finish. I like my erotica books short and sweet, but that’s just my personal preference. But other than that it was really good! This book is now available on Amazon, I provided the link below.

The Summary: 

A painful past. A forbidden romance. Will she choose love and make the ultimate sacrifice?

For Stella Welsch, buying a home and starting her own business has already pushed the boundaries of her strict upbringing. When she meets the sexy and powerful executive, Conrad Adams, Stella knows he’s off limits, but can’t help daydream about forbidden romance. As sparks begin to fly, Stella reveals that the relationship could have her cut off from her family and life as she knows it.

After painful memories surface, Stella decides to follow her heart and succumb to the sexy business mogul’s pursuits. But she quickly discovers that her sheltered upbringing hasn’t prepared her for what she is about to face. Her naïve knowledge of “sex” is nothing more than foreplay to the sexually experienced Conrad. As her feelings build, Stella must choose between Conrad and her family. Between rebellion and convention.

Stella’s Awakening is the first installment in an erotic romance series that tackles difficult social issues. If you like EL James and Jodi Picoult, then you’ll love this intriguing, sexy, and emotional rollercoaster of a book

The cover: 

Definitely fits the book. The book is about temptation, sin, and the unattainable. What better way to show that on the cover than the biblical snake and forbidden Apple? I give the cover 5 out of 5 stars. 

Ok so for my mini spoiler:

What could possibly keep Stella from her worldly Conrad? Well Stella comes the sheltered life of Jehova’s Witnesses. And it’s a sin to be with someone like Conrad. She fights the temptation until she finally succumbs to her feelings for him. By being with him she risks being shunned by her church and family. So she is obviously torn on what to do.

 I felt connected to the story because well. I grew up in a “Witness” home. I’ve lived my life always being told what was  wrong and what I have to do to stay pure. Now I’m not saying they are bad people or wrong but in my heart I couldn’t live my life with a congregation who turns their backs on family just because a person won’t follow the same faith and rules as them.  One thing many don’t know know about me is, I actually got pregnant out of wedlock and of course the church was not happy with me. But that’s ok because my “baby daddy” and I have now been married 10 years and still happily married! I don’t regret my decisions one bit two kids later haha 😉

Thanks for reading friends! I really hope you like this book review and the little bit of info of my life! If you like erotica books I really thing you need to check Stella’s Awakening book 1 of a new series!
