When you start this book, be prepared to be taken on a very deep, emotional journey. Lily and Chase's story slowly unfolds and you get to realize just how damaged the two of them are. Chase's tough exterior hides the truth, a man deeply wounded and trying to right the wrongs in his life. Lily does what she does best, she runs. She ran to the city to escape her past and rebuild her future. At the insistence of her friend, Sierra, she moves to the city and stays in her field of expertise....case manager for the pediatric unit of the hospital.
Each character is given the chance to grow before your eyes. You feel what they are feeling, you cry with them, laugh with them and hurt for them. This story is a beautiful tale of learning to trust and moving from the past. From Lily and Chase's relationship, to the friendships of Lily and Sierra and Chase and Asher, this book covers all the bases. I love the dynamics between the friends, and even more so with Lily and Chase. A solid 5 star read for me and a must read for your tbr.

He vows to live for the moment because it’s the only time he owns. The past is beyond his control and the future may not exist. With his only loyalties being his family, he thrives for that edge where plunging over is always in the realm of possibility.
When a beautiful familiar face tilts his axis, he re-examines everything and realizes that second chances are overrated and a lifetime of firsts are irreplaceable. In the end, it’s not her medical degree but his trust that needs to prove that the ride together is worth it ... until it’s Beautifully Done.

About the Authors
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
