Awakening Kiss (Watcher's Kiss, #4) by Sharon Kay



Goodreads Review




As part of the Watchers, Rhys is used to all types of combat, pursuit, and interrogation. But hacking and tracking through hidden online channels is where he excels. Shattering codes and sneaking around firewalls comes as easily to him as a swordfight or street brawl with a predatory enemy.

Cooking up sweet new pastry creations is Enza’s dream job. Kitchen appliances never fail her, unlike every computer she’s ever touched. Her fledging baking business is doing well, yet as streetlights flicker with her changing mood, she can’t shake the feeling that she’s different from everyone else. But life as a regular Chicago girl is all she’s ever known…until one hot summer night.

Violence threatens both of them when her world collides with Rhys’s in a dark city alley. As a raw and formidable ability awakens in her mind, she becomes targeted by the last person she expects. Drawn to his sweet baker with a pull he can’t deny, Rhys vows to protect her—no matter the consequences that will change their lives forever.



Ms. Kay knows how to set a fantastic paranormal world with strong heroines, interesting plots and smexy times.
Enza owns a bakery with her friend the Java Genie and she makes amazing baked goods. On her way home from work Enza doesn’t realise how late it is and is about to get mugged or even worse. She cuts through an alley and jumps into a mirage blurry thing ah also known as portal.
Rhys is a Watcher in Chicago after a betrayal that cut deep he can do what he loves once again. On patrol they see a skirmish between elves and demons and intervene, that though doesn’t stop him from smelling sugar and seeing someone jump into the portal. Thinking that person is the enemy he jumps in and saves her.
Enza is thrust into a world with demons, werewolves, elves, pixies and nymphs. Although Enza herself isn’t who she thinks she is.
Enza is part demon without realising it. She has abilities that are magnificent and she deals with the world she was thrust into perfectly, maybe too perfect. No hysteria, nothing.
I enjoyed the relationship with the MC and they are good together: I love the whole mated thing so that was a bonus.
I love this series and I couldn’t wait for this book as soon as I saw that it is being released. But alas this one didn’t really quite work for me. Bad thing? I guessed about 20 % too soon what was going to happen.
I will look forward to the others coming out in the series.
