In the latest superhot tale from reader-favorite author Rachael Stewart, business owner Olivia Carmel is embracing her wild side, and PR expert Valentine Boretti has been hired to rein her in. But instead, Olivia is driving him wild…for her!
Seeing a client naked is no way to start a working relationship—especially when that client is stunningly sensual Olivia Carmel. When she invites me to watch her BDSM session in London’s most hedonistic sex club, she thinks I’m a stranger, not a PR expert sent to rein her in.
Watching Olivia awakens a hunger I can’t allow myself to feel. There’s no way I can work with her! But when she crashes her luxury car, I can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for her recklessness to turn fatal. She may kill me when she recognizes me…and when she learns a man sixteen years her junior has been hired to curtail her bad behavior.
I’m here to reawaken Olivia’s careful, rational nature. But instead she’s reawakening my desire…showing me just how well we work together in and out of the bedroom. As we fulfill each other’s naughtiest fantasies, and share our deepest longings, I realize I’m feeling more for my wayward client than lust. But can I convince Olivia to take a chance on love?
Olivia and Valentine are both troubled souls after both experiencing tragedy in their lives. We first meet Olivia in the BDSM club she frequents. As she partakes in the activities that give her a true thrill, the younger hero of this story is sat in the side-lines watching the scene unfolding before him.
When Olivia’s husband dies, she decides to start living her life by her own rules, but that fun is rather short lived when the board of the company that she owns following the passing of her husband catch wind of her antics and bring in PR expert Valentine to rein her in and bring her back under control.
Valentine knows instantly that he has certainly got his work cut out for him where it comes to Olivia, but he is determined to give it his best shot as a favour to his mentor. What neither Valentine of Olivia expected was the chemistry that would sizzle away between them from the start, not to mention how much this pair actually have in common with one another. As Valentine tries to do his job, will he manage to gain control of Olivia, or will she reawaken something within him that has been dormant for quite some time.
Whenever you pick up a book by Rachael Stewart you know you are in for a treat. Reawakened introduces us to a cast of vibrant characters who certainly capture your attention from the start. When we first meet Olivia I have to admit I felt rather unsure as to whether I would grow to like her, but despite her rather stubborn, over confident start, you learn more about her and why she acts the way she does and before long you find yourself warming to her. Valentine however is a character I like immediately, and despite him having his own secrets tucked away, he comes across as a good man. I really enjoyed the older woman, younger man romantic dynamic in this book, something you so rarely come across.
The storyline flows wonderfully and has plenty of heat and drama to keep you engrossed to the end. This is another absolute beauty of a book by Rachael Stewart.

About the Author
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.
She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
