Adriana is barely living after the tragic loss of her husband in a car accident. Her behaviour is causing her friends to be incredibly concerned about her as she shuts down emotionally and physically. She is trying desperately to hold on to his memory; to keep him alive.
Tucker is escaping from his own relationship issues when he discovers his long term girlfriend and co-star cheating on him with a fellow actor. He is devastated by the betrayal and takes off to escape the drama. Following the advice of his very spirited Grams, he ends up in front of Adriana's house.
The chance meeting changes both their lives as they are instantly drawn to each. Adriana fights the attraction at every turn as she believes she is betraying her husband. The feeling of guilt that she should be able to live her life is over-whelming for her. For Tucker these feelings are very new and he quickly realises that his previous relationships were lacking. He instinct with Adriana is to immediately put her best interests first and protect her.

Tucker is the stranger who walks into her life. He is looking for some solitude and time to recover after finding his girlfriend having sex with someone else. Tucker feels instantly attracted to Adriana but senses that there is something going on with her.
Throughout the book you see the struggle of guilt and attraction and how these and other emotions are dealt with. Adriana has a lot to deal with and struggles with it.
This was an amazing debut novel that I felt truly dealt with human emotion. Other novels I've read where a loved dies and the spouse/partner finds love again always seem to gloss over how the character deals with it. Often I find that I think of these characters as superficial but Renee Dyer deals with it beautifully. Definitely an author to watch.
“Your beauty has the power to bring me to my knees.”
Tucker’s grams raised him and is his world and ultimately what leads him to Adrianna in the first place after telling him to have an adventure, she’s a true believer that everyone will see “the smile” and find true love and some are lucky to find it twice and she doesn’t hesitate to tell Tucker to chase after what his heart wants.
“I want to be the person you reach for when you wake up from your nightmares, the person you call when you have a bad day, the one you share your happiness with.”
I’m so grateful I bought Waking up after the second book eyes wide open was released if not I would have been devastated as Renee Dyer leaves the book on a cliffhanger and I couldn’t wait to find out what the future has in store for Adrianna and Tucker, so eyes wide open is next for me to read.
