I had the privilege of reading Amber Stokes’ While You’re Awake in an early stage, while it still had a different title but the same sweet tone!
I love and admire Amber’s ability to take a contemporary setting and set a fairy-tale spin to it, complete with a darling coffee shop and a kind hero. In fact, I think I liked the hero best, just because he was so good to the heroine.
This story is different; it centers around a semi-traumatic event in the heroine’s life that catapults her into her first meeting with the hero. Thus begins a short and sweet love story perfect for a chilly autumn afternoon!
