The opening chapter of the book finds one of the main character's, Collin, waking up in a morgue and the pace of the book takes off from there. We are introduced to the love of Collin's life, Detective Riojos Fernando, when he has been on a three day bender over the loss of Collin, only to have Collin waltz right back into his life. Once Riojos decides Collin is real and not a figment of his drunk imagination, the bad guys come gunning for Collin, but Rio refuses to lose his lover again and the two of the go on the run. We meet many characters along the way including Riojos' brother, a suspicious police detective, Collin's parents, several bad guys, and a couple of good guys who know more than they tell let on.
This is a fun, fast paced story that will have you chomping 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 with the characters, especially Tony and Sal, who I am sure will show up again. If you enjoy paranormal, M/M, romance, with a bit of mystery, you'll enjoy this! ~ Gennie from Guilty Pleasures
The story opens up with Collin waking up... in a morgue wearing a toe-tag. He remembers shoving his lover, detective Riojos, out of the way of a speeding car, getting crushed against a building, and dying. Not a good way to celebrate one's 21st birthday. But here he is now, alive and well, though a bit chilled to the bone. He returns home to find Riojos devastated by Collin's death, drinking heavily, and even contemplating suicide. From there, the story progresses as we discover a crime lord named Mr. Donahue is out to capture Collin, Collin's not quite human, and strangers to both Riojos and Collin are fully aware of the situation and are tasked with protecting Collin.
Questions are raised, but not answered (and will remain unanswered until the third story in the series). The characters are continually thrown into action and danger at the drop of a hat, and the cast of characters quickly grows as new antagonists and protagonists flow in and out of the story like water. If anything, the story has more of a feel of an introduction than a complete story in of itself. This creates a bit of a disjointed feel to the story overall that keeps it as a three-star story in my eyes. But there are some good points to the story, the most important being that it's the start of a new series and the groundwork is laid here. The second story in the series flows a bit more smoothly, and the third ups the ante even more, developing the series to the point where it becomes quite compelling.
While it's the least favorite of the stories in the series so far, I do recommend it if you're open for starting a new supernatural erotic series. The overall series of an evil entity hunting these men/creatures, and the guardians tasked with protecting them, is turning out to be quite fun, and I'm eagerly awaiting the fourth in the series.
The day's been difficult enough, but nothing compares to going home only to discover his life partner hung over and waving his service revolver in Collin's face. After three days of drowning his sorrow in alcohol, Det. Riojos Fernando figures he's going nuts when Collin returns from the dead. Riojos held Collin in his arms as he died so it's kind of hard to believe Collin's back, so to speak.
Nothing is adding up for Collin and Riojos as they try to get answers as to what's going on. The more they dig the more bad guys come after them. On top of dodging killers it seems that a Det. Tony Santano is looking for Collin's body and his missing lover Riojos. Whatever is going on Collin and Riojos need answers before someone kills them permanently.
Intense drama, some morbid humor, and a major mystery surround the characters in Collin's Awakening. This exciting new series barely takes a breath from one deadly scene to the next. Character development evolves along the way in the fast paced plot while secrets unravel and answers are hard to come by. Collin's Awakening relies on sizzling hot sex, strong men, and an intriguing plot to keep readers interested, and it works perfectly.

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.
