Awestruck at Dusk


Loved it! 😍

Fantastic romcom about a young girl trying to find her place in the world.

Awestruck at Dawn is a cute rom-com featuring the enigmatic Billie Murphy and her chaotic life. 

Picking up where we left off, Billie is coming to terms with severe loss and has grown rather introspective about her current circumstances. I liked that she has matured significantly from the previous book and finally took a stance against her father's stifling ways. 

Awestruck at Dawn heats up as Billie finds herself locked in a love triangle between William, the man she can't seem to let go of and who took a bullet for her, and Nathan, the man who has been her rock and solace and her very present fiance- Hello DRAMA.

As if this wasn't enough, there's Nathan's sister aka the new chick on the block, who has firmly planted herself between William and Billie and is slowly causing a rift between them. Williams continues to be an enigma right up until the very end and I adored that he made readers love to hate him. 

One thing I will say for the author, Alejandra knows how to leave readers utterly speechless with her jaw-dropping revelations, and Awesome at Dawn was a splendid example of this. I was absolutely floored by the truth that was teased but never fully explored since book one. 

My only qualm with Awestruck at Dawn was the tidy ending but based on the epic cliffhanger of the previous book it was simply hard to top. 

Thank you to Reedsy Discovery and the author for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
