*****J’adore/Nous Adorons: World-changing, we could not put it down even if we dared to try. And, we might just read it again. We would recommend it to anyone.
****Liked it: It didn’t shatter our worlds. Something held us back from that amazing moment of complete obsession, but we definitely liked it a lot. We would recommend it to our friends.

For those who skim: The love between Olivia and Will is one of those rare *sigh* love eyes kind of love that you just can’t escape.

“That girl isn’t just trouble of the not-a-team-player, not-a-reliable-runner variety. She’s trouble of the devious, manipulative, too-f***ing-hot-for-her-own good variety. She’s the kind of girl who causes trouble merely by existing, and then makes sure to cause more.
And the last thing I need right now is more trouble.”

A failing farm.
His father’s debt.
And a struggling college track team.
Will Langstrom has too many responsibilities, and the last thing he needs is Olivia Finnegan, a beautiful but troubled new transfer student.

A smart mouth.
A strong right hook.
And a secret that could destroy her.
Olivia is her own worst enemy, with a past she can’t seem to escape, and the last person she wants help from is a cocky track coach she can never seem to please.
Refusing to be pushed away, Will is determined to save her.
And determined to resist an attraction that could destroy them both.

Take a chance on this book.
For real.
I think, I just love Elizabeth O’roark’s writing. This is the second book I’ve read that she’s written. And, I loved it!
I loved it!
It was beautiful and angsty.
Olivia is the bad girl with a heart of gold. She said the things that only a good girl would dream of.
Will was honestly… Amazing. He just blew my mind. I loved him and his internal struggle. The way he loved Olivia was like magic.
Waking Olivia is an original and unique novel. I can’t remember the last time that a book hooked me the way this one did.
It’s not often that you love both the main characters so fiercely.
