Amy Whitfield is blindsided when she comes home and finds a note on the fridge from her husband, Wesley, stating that after four years of marriage, he’s leaving her. Amy was in the midst of trying to spice things up, to bring life back to their boring marriage. It seems now that she was too late.
As Amy sits with her head between her knees, trying to figure out what to do next, a call comes from Mercer General Hospital. The ER nurse is telling Amy’s answering machine that Wesley has been in a car accident.
When Amy arrives at the hospital, she finds her husband in a coma. The doctors say there is no sign of brain damage, and Wesley will eventually wake up. Relieved, Amy sees this as her second chance: the chance to get it right this time. To channel the girl Wesley won’t leave when he regains consciousness… She just needs some help to pull it off. After all, she was voted girl most likely to die a virgin in high school.
Amy would never figure on getting that help from Mark Reilly…Wesley’s doctor! He’s a non-committer, too-cute-for-his-own-good bachelor, and completely the guy Amy begins falling for. It’s a race against time to see who wakes up first—Amy or her husband.

Waking Amy, by Julie Ann Dove is simply spectacular. I was expecting the usual romance novel: stuffed with sex scenes and an average plot line. This story took me completely by surprise, though. This compelling read not only has an amazing romance story, but also a fantastic plot that keeps you reading through to the end. It’s hard not to cheer for Amy the way this author has portrayed her. It’s a must-read. Something this wonderful needs to be shared among the masses!
Blythe wants nothing more than to get away from this. Not to just survive it, but forget it.
Strapped down, nearly naked, beaten, scared and drugged she has no idea where this dark and dismal place is. Kidnapped and being set up to be tortured again by the men who hold her, she has to find a way to break free and get away.
Can she dig deep inside and awaken the force that is her alter ego? Can she awaken the beast within? She is drawing hopeless thoughts and losing herself inside of the drugs that are repeatedly given to keep her weak.
Miss Hyde has her own list of ideas and not a single one includes just escape.

Review: Big Bad Wolf by Kindra Sowder…I have never in my life read something so disturbing and yet intriguing at the same time. It sent chills down my spine reading the things that happened to Blythe, and I couldn’t stop reading. Each page brought me deeper into the story and I didn’t want to come back out of it. Even though this is the first book that I’ve read of this series, it was absolutely fantastic and I’ll be looking for the rest of it. This dark story brings up dark topics like torture and kidnapping, but Sowder’s writing style makes it impossible to put the book down, even if some of the descriptions make me cringe. More people need to know about this book and Miss Kindra Sowder’s writing.
