PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Sexual Awakenings Volume 1 The Waltz by Angelica Chase
Release Blitz- Oct. 31st- Nov. 7th


You know what they say… One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

After sacrificing years of my life on a cheating husband, I'd had enough. I set out to quench a thirst I had ignored for years. I gave myself one year to explore my sexuality—to delve into my deepest, darkest desires. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I would have my sexual revolution. I would have my … awakening.

Unsure of where to start, I took a risk to make myself seen. Little did I know, the man who saw me would give me everything I ever wanted, one sweet orgasm at a time.
Diving into the world of both pleasure and pain, I was sure with Rhys I had found what I’d been missing … until he took it away.

Filthy Erotic Romance. For Mature Audiences only. Extremely Explicit Sex. Strong Language.

Well, hell. This is so not what I expected. The Waltz is definitely a VERY spicy warm-up of what promises to be a scorching series. Straight to the point with a great pace, this book takes you on a journey of a 32 year old woman completely neglected and soul-shattering hurt by her husband. The kind of hurt that trickles in and all of a sudden overruns your life. In that sense, Vi is probably the most relatable character I've come across. She's not perfect and is taking baby steps to accept herself and discover who she is, without the weight of her husband's actions. After years of being ignored and not treated as a woman, she finally decides to explore her sexuality and put aside her insecurities and inhibitions. Rhys is perfect. Too perfect. This actually bothered me a bit and is one of the two reasons I'm not giving the full five stars. There is nothing wrong with him. He is gorgeous, owns a BDSM club, is rich, has a 9-5 job, is respectful, observant and just all around perfect. I'm hoping to see another, more human side of him in the next book. Especially after that ending. Whew!!!! 
The other reason? The way they initially meet bothered me a bit. It sounds completely plausible at first, and it well could've been. But .... First chat and they agree to meet and fuck?! It's way too quick, even for an insta-lust kind of deal. 

I really enjoyed this easy to read book, and can't wait to see where the author takes that ending and twists it into even more delicious, steamy scenes for us. 



When we were seated, he must have noticed my frown.

“What is it, Violet?” he asked, taking a tortilla chip from the bowl that had just been set down before us.

“Nothing,” I said, looking around the restaurant, none too pleased with the fact we weren’t dining in a classier place.

“Ah,” he said smirking. “You were expecting to be dined at a five star restaurant and fed buttered lobster from my fingers, is that it?”

“Well, not exactly,” I said, completely busted.

He opened his menu, trying to hide his deep smile, but I saw it.

“Okay, fine. Maybe I was hoping for something like that,” I said, picking up my menu.
“Uh huh,” he said, his chest moving with his chuckle.

“You’re doing it again, Rhys,” I said, my voice in a warning, “laughing at my expense.”
“You make it too easy.” He closed his menu and leaned over. “Sorry, but you have obviously read one too many erotica books.”

I crossed my arms and sat back, defiant. “So what? That’s what we women crave, to be worshiped and showered with gifts and adored while getting our brains f**ked out.”

He leaned over, closed my menu and looked directly at me, his stare hot and making me shift suddenly. “I intend to make you crave me after I worship, shower, adore your p**sy and fuck your brains out. But tonight, I’m in the mood for Mexican, okay, princess?”
