[Free Ebook] ☦ Collins Awakening (Phoenix Rising, # 1) (Phoenix Rising, # 1) ☹ Catalizadores.co

A good start to a new series I wasn t sure from the early descriptions if I would like this new series, but I thought I would give it a try There are some plot holes, but knowing the authors I m sure they will be covered in future stories I m a sucker for smaller weaker partner paired with stronger larger partner books The romance and love between Collin and Riojos was very well done It s an interesting concept to explore, the love, loss, and recovery of someone thought dead I look forward to the rest of the series. I have about twenty reviews to write today so I m just going to paste my notes here Maybe I ll turn them into an actual review at some point.Why do I read this crap Collin acts like a little boy once he s with Riojo.At least the premise is different He would be livid he hadn t been told view spoiler he was adopted hide spoiler [Free Ebook] ☾ Collins Awakening (Phoenix Rising, # 1) (Phoenix Rising, # 1) ♹ Siren Classic ManLove Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M M, Shape Shifters, Public Exhibition Riojos And Collin Were Lovers, Partners, And Best Friends When Collin Is Killed In A Senseless Car Accident, Riojos Is Sent Into A Drunken Stupor Unable To Live Without The Love He Shared With Collin, He S Ready To Take His Own Life Their Lives Change Forever When Collin Comes Home From The Morgue Collin Has Always Heard A Low Buzzing In His Head, But When The Buzzing Turns To Voices, Collin Must Make Sense Of The Path His Life Has Taken Coming Back To Life Throws Him Into A World He Never Knew Existed As His Lover, Riojos, Tries Desperately To Keep Collin Alive The Two Fight To Make Sense Of Collin S Rebirth And The People Out To Kill Collin Again They Discover The Love They Have For One Another Runs Deeper Than Anything They Could Have Ever Imagined As The Wicked Hunt Them Down And A Phoenix Rises A Siren Erotic Romance typical lynn hagen serial romance nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can t be finished what is typical lynn hagen imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no ta see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but yeah out of sheer laziness, i will be using this as my template for all books by lynn hagenstormy glennscarlett hyacinthcarol lynnegabrielle evansunless otherwise noted i d apologize, but i m not sorry i figure it s about as much time as they put into their books dammit well, i made it all the way to the end being rather moderate in my assessment that s a win. 2.5 stars Too many holes and inconsistencies to be likable Concept is great, but it s neither explained well or integrated into the story It started off well, but then went downhill Hopefully the next one is better. Collin s Awakening Phoenix Rising 1 is written by two of my favorite light M M authors Stormy Glenn and Lynn Hagen I wasn t sure what to expect with this book because it is the first in a new series,

at the bit to read the next one, if you re anything like me There may have been a few grammatical errors and inconsistencies but not bad enough to impact my enjoyment of this book I truly fell in love

Review Circumstances forced me to take a lot of long breaks with this one, which is a pity For the most part I really enjoyed it.It had a nicely mysterious feel to it and not everything was answered by the end of this first volume We still haven t actually been told what Collin has transformed into although it seems safe to say he is a phoenix Given the series title that hardly constitutes a spoiler The protagonists were endearing and I liked the other characters with viewpoint as well they re obviously set up as mains for the next few books Unexpectedly, the very thing that put me off reading this, i.e the fact that the couple had already been together for three years, made it all thebelievable and sweet.It was very funny too at times, so it felt like a good start to a fresh series.However at one point things fell apart slightly The one that introduced the existence of mates What bothered me was not just the concept of it with its clich d nature, but that the next scene began so abruptly and without the previous one having truly concluded, that it took me a full page to realize the two were alone now Only the sex kind of made that clear Also, the sudden revelation that Collin apparently died on his twenty first birthday We already know that they were together for three years And that Riojos is a detective Huh Did not expect the implied age gap It kind of gives their relationship a slightly different spin if they got together when Collin was barely legal That he is still so young now also tinges Riojos dominant behaviour with a foul taste I find this very sad because I had liked the two of them together up to that point It was part of what I enjoyed most here.I m really not happy with the abandon people are view spoiler made immortal, either For one thing it should bedifficult and involve some sort of personal sacrifice for the phoenix, plus there should be a lotdeliberation Yeah, he s told to not go around and immortalize everyone, but there doesn t really seem to be a limit, and with his kind heart you just know he will try to save everyone Since there obviously are others of his kind, how is it that the world is not saturated with immortals by now Well, maybe it is in this series universe, but that just seems disappointing hide spoiler I m very glad that I listened to a friend s recommendation and read this first book in the Phoenix Rising series The entire concept and story is very different from the normal shifter, vampire, demon, or faerie stories and I was very intrigued by the difference.Collin Phoenix wakes up in a cold morgue, naked on a metal table with a toe tag on He has no clue how he got there or exactly what happened Throwing a sheet on, he runs out of there and makes it to a homeless shelter, gets clothes because its winter out and he s freezing, a warm bowl of soup, and then he remembers dying Terrified beyond belief he rushes home to Riojos, his partner and lover of three years.Riojos has been drunk for three days ever since watching his love die in front of him When the knock comes at the door, he stumbles blindly to it, only to open it to a mirage of his Collin He can t understand it and thinks its Collin s ghost After passing out he wakes up to discover he wasn t dreaming and it s not a ghost Hearing noise outside he and Collin desperately run from two large men with guns What now They end up being chased with still no clue about what Collin is, although they do discover he was adopted and that he s now immortal On the run with Collin s parents they are trying to get to the bottom of this insanity before the bad guys get them.This was a very fun book and I really enjoyed it I liked that the book ended without answering some questions so the mystery wasn t all tied up in a neat little bow As I said, it was a different type of paranormal and I m very excited to read the others in the series.NOTE This book was provided by Siren Publishing for the purpose of a review
