Out of the Box Awakening is the first book in the Out of the Box Series by Jennifer Theriot. It is an emotionally charged women’s literature/contemporary romance with an older, more seasoned main characters. It isn’t what you would normally expect from a romance, as Ms. Theriot takes us one a deeper, more realistic and emotional journey. This is a second chance romance, with new beginnings, finding oneself/self-discovery, learning and growing, and much more.
We meet Olivia Petersen who has her ‘perfect’ world turned upside down by her husband’s betrayal, leaving her out of her depth, confused, and away from her comfort zone.
Ash Harper is Liv’s husbands’ former army buddy, who has experienced much pain himself. He has baggage and secrets- but they share a connection that neither can deny.
Fate throws they together, and there will be choices to be made… so will they find comfort and happiness in each other? Is he her Mr. Right- Or just Mr Right Now?
You really should read the story/series and discover all the emotional details for yourself!
An enjoyable story, even though it was a little cheesy and predictable in place, the emotional content helped to balance the story.
Thank you, Ms. Theriot!
