Izzy is on the fast track to nowhere. Being ordinary really blew sometimes. That's until she meets Lucas--a man that's unlike anyone she's ever met. Mostly because he isn't actually a man. He is a supernatural creature that proclaims to police the Light and Dark in order to protect humans.

And Izzy--well--she isn't the human she thought she was. She is actually a supernatural being as well. And now Lucas is going to do everything in his power to find out what she is and protect her from the Dark lurking around the corner.

Awakening follows Izzy as she navigates this new world of demons, vampires, angels, and many other supernatural creatures. Recruited by the Promiscus Guardians and partnering with the most brooding and devilishly handsome man she's every met, Lucas, Izzy is suddenly knee-deep up crap creek. Discover the secret behind her power and why it's such a commodity in her Awakening.

 
Awakening by Brianna West (Promiscus Guardians Book 1)

Awakening (Promiscus Guardians Book 1)Face it, you meet all kinds of people around a bar, but who could know Izzy would have an encounter with the police? Okay, not THE police, but supernatural police, the good guys in the eternal battle against evil. Alrighty then, as if that wasn’t enough, Izzy also discovers she is not exactly human, either and they want to recruit her. Let the games, the action and the snark begin as Izzy finds herself caught up in a world filled with vampires, angels, demons, fairies and more! And you thought Brad Pitt was hot? Trust me; these beings have looks that are going nova with personalities to match!

Prepare yourself for a daring take on the supernatural, characters that will have you crying, no, not tears of sorrow, but from laughter as these brawny men attempt to charm and disarm Izzy. So why, for the love of all that is rational, does she have the hots for the stodgy and serious half-vampire, half angel, Lucas, the original Mr. Stick-up-his shorts, the king of following the rules and the over-protective brute who will stop at nothing to spoil Izzy’s inner wild child’s fun? Of course, opposites attract and as Izzy works hard to needle Lucas at every chance, she just wants him to notice her. As if anyone could ignore a thorn the size of a fence post in their thumb, Lucas is well aware of the heat that threatens to explode if he gives in to his urges. Get ready to see Izzy’s new world through her eyes, her mind and her priceless inner dialogue as she learns to stand her ground in a world of uber powerful beings.

Don’t get me wrong, there is serious stuff going on here, there is a traitor in their midst, but Brianna West has done a clever job of buffering it with attitude, humor and the sheer brute power of her writing. Awakening is a fabulous addition to the paranormal world. I cannot wait for more from this talented author and her fresh look at things that go bump in the night! Besides, somewhere there is a supernatural war brewing and we may need the Guardians, or at least Izzy's attitude.

I received this review copy from the author, Brianna West in exchange for my honest review.
