    I adored this book! Better than the first, I found myself emerged as if I never left.

    The plot of the book follows the first but slightly different. I loved that the plot faced a big obstacle, like communicating. LOL! At times, it was funny cause Russell was doing his darnest just to communicate with her. He knew her yet he could figure out how to speak with her. This plot flows well along with the characters. Both Russell and Annabelle both share a dark past that haunts then both. Yet, they come together strongly facing it together.

    As you can tell from my plot description that the love interest is just as good. There are many moments in this book that placed a goofy smile on my face. I loved watching these two characters who have been fighting darkness on their own for so long, rely on each other. It's awesome to see them love each other and even sacrifice the only love they found just to protect each other. Absolutely selfless.

    All the characters of the book have grown. The reader even sees the characters from the first book moving on slowly in their life. The author also works in some clues as to who we can look forward to having their adventure. I adore watching each of the guys and ladies, find the one for them.

    Awaited is an highly recommended sequel. Faced with more obstacles, the team is getting larger in number as well as in love. They rely on each other and always have each other backs. Awaited is a well constructed story that will blows readers away!

    My problem with most books is that they start off too slow. That is not
    the case with Awaited. This book starts off with a pretty big bang,
    literally. From the very beginning and through the whole novel, the
    story is fast paced and like a roller coaster ride. There's a lot going
    on- in a good way. It was super hard to put the book down, even for a
    moment. It's one of those books that you basically read the whole way
    through because you can't possibly stop and not know what happens next.
    I feel that Lynn's writing really strengthened in this book. There's not
    one single thing I didn't love about it. In fact, I almost feel like
    rereading it already- that's just how much I loved it! I have to
    applaud Lynn Rush. The chemistry between Belle and Russell was
    MAGNIFICENT! I've never "Awwww"ed so much over two characters.
    One of the best things about their relationship is how special it is.
    Not only in the paranormal way, but in the way they communicate. Russell
    is so tender and sweet. (Where can I get me one of those?) I love how
    Belle alternates between a vulnerable and strong female character. It
    was great seeing her development throughout the story. I felt a lot
    more connected to these two characters, than I did Beka and David,
    although I was happy when they made tiny appearances in Awaited. And
    Jessica, too! We also meet new characters, Rain in particular, who I
    hope is in book 3 because I really liked her. Like book 1, Awaited has
    a lot of Paranormal aspects within. This story was very interesting. The
    plot was very entertaining and exciting, as well as unique. Anxiously
    awaiting book 3! Awaited ended in the perfect way to set up for the next
    novel! I recommend this book to any paranormal lover that enjoys an
    action and romance filled tale with a unique twist! A big thank you to
    the author for providing a review copy!

    Awaited is the second book in the Wasteland Trilogy although it

    Awaited is the second book in the Wasteland Trilogy although it can be read as a stand alone book too.
    This is definitely a book that you cannot put down once you have started.

    The main character is Russell a four hundred plus year old Guardian Angel, who even though he is so old doesn’t look older than 25.
    The book is quick to get started with Russell and Durk on a plane flying to their next destination for their next assignment to procure a female Guardian who is the first in two centuries. When their plane crashes.

    The story is very gripping every page had me wanting more as it got better and better the more I read. Packed with action, adventure, love, Demons, Angels, life and death. It had everything you could want in a book.

    The love story between Russell and Annabelle and how they were a great team even from the beginning plus the paranormal element of the Guardian Angels and Demons made it all the better.

    Awaited is written by a woman but from a man’s view which I think works really well as Lynn has captured everything from the strong tough man to the soft gentle man that falls apart when it comes to his woman.

    The book is very well written, it flowed really well and it was very well detailed which meant my imagination could flow freely.

    I loved being sucking into this imaginary world.

    I really enjoyed reading Awaited. I wasn’t expecting it to be half as good as it turned out to be and I am so glad I had the opportunity to read and review it.

    Step aside Edward and Bella! We now have two new immortals, Russell and Annabelle to embrace as we read their powerful love story of fate and destiny, Guardians and demons, desire and need, and the power of love. Awaited is a fast paced novel by Lynn Rush that has it all: good and bad, blood and guts, angels and demons and the power of love that saves them all.

    A plane ride. A fatal crash for all aboard except Russell and Durk, two Guardians sent to retrieve another Guardian and bring her back to their main headquarters. To their surprise, they find a female passenger buried under debris still alive. After a difficult rescue, Russell is shocked to see that this woman is the same woman he has been dreaming about for the past 3 months. He is deeply drawn to her and does everything possible to keep her alive. She has many deep bruises and gashes and remains unconscious for a long time. But Russell realizes that her bruises are healing very quickly, just as fast as his and Durk’s and they’re immortal. So is this woman immortal? Is she the guardian they’re supposed to find and bring home? But what was she doing on the plane?

    Russell and Durk are very confused and try to contact their leaders, but their phones receive no signals so they decide to find the nearest town and ask for help. The woman is still unconscious and they take turns carrying her. She awakens every once in a while but is very afraid of Durk, but not Russell. She seems to be very drawn to him as he is to her. So Russell gives her all his attention. She never speaks but signs to which neither one understands. All Russell finds out is that her name is Annabelle. Finally, they reach a town and find room and board for the night. The girl is awake now and Russell tries to question her but she only answers in bits and pieces. Annabelle has terrible nightmares, tossing, crying out in loud sobs while Russell tries very hard to console her.

    Determined to bring her home and hopefully find out about Annabelle’s past, they travel for many days, always with the feeling that they are being followed. Finally, they reach her home and meet her best friend, Halli, who explains that Annabelle and her parents were kidnapped when Annabelle was twelve. Her parents were killed and Annabelle has never spoken a word since. Halli also states that Annabelle has changed quite a bit since this ordeal. Russell is obsessed with finding out what has happened to Annabelle so he can kill the people who have done this to her. She is in his care and he wants to make her feel safe. Still the feeling of being followed and watched makes Russell and Durk very uneasy. How can this be? They have never seen anyone in their travels. Through constant persuasion, Annabelle tells Russell about her kidnapping, how her parents were tortured and murdered in front of her and then she was tortured. Then she was let go. Durk still feels there is something wrong and spends most of his time keeping watch outside for demons to approach.

    And then it happens. Durk calls to tell Russell that demons are approaching and they are to leave immediately. But, she is his mate. He will never let her go. He will do everything he can to find her and protect her and bring her home so they can have a life together. He prays to the angel, Michael, his leader, to help him save Annabelle and enlists the help of all the Guardians to destroy the demons and turn Annabelle back into the woman she was before tragedy struck.

    I give AWAITED 5 stars! I loved every second of it!!

    Lynn Rush hit it out of the park on this one. What a fabulous romance story with elements of action that keep me flipping the pages. I just had to find out what would happen between Russell and Annabelle. Could they overcome their differences? Or the war that was raging around them? Ms. Rush doesn't take it easy on the couple-- they have to work for it, which is totally worth it. This is a must read.

    Delightful!

    What I Loved:

    I absolutely loved the character of Anabelle. She was sweet, cute, and simultaneously powerful and vulnerable. While I generally do enjoy a good demon story, this one was especially delightful. At first the demons kind of felt wimpy and too-easily defeated, but by the middle of the story it's clear that's only because the main character, Russel, is just a kick-ass Guardian. Also, Lynn Rush does a wonderful job with teasing and leading the reader on with mysterious events and sentences.

    What I Didn't Like:

    Not too much to complain about here.

    My Overall Review:


    I really enjoyed reading Awaited. It was a fairly easy and quick read, with the action starting in the first few pages and continuing until the last sentence. I really enjoyed how Lynn pointed to an unknown, kept bringing the answer within grasp, and then left readers hanging. While I enjoyed Russel's story, the star of the show is definitely Annabelle. Even before I ever saw her on the page, she was talked about so radiantly that I already knew I'd like her. When she was introduced, she was so incredibly vulnerable, and that was absolutely endearing. If you enjoy stories of angels and demons, this is definitely a book that I'd advise you to pick up.
