Creed comes from a future that I want no part of. The government has figured out a way to efficiently lower crime rate and a proficient way to control population numbers. The government has even created a group of enforcers to make sure that individuals take the prescribed meds. Creed is one of these enforcers. His latest target has jumped through time in an effort to evade him. Creed is the best at chasing the rebels that refuse to abide by the rules that make the future so controlled.

Shayla is shocked to find two men arguing in her front yard. She is even more terrified when one attacks her, leaving the other bleeding on her front porch. What she doesn’t know is that the one who attacked her has not really injured the other, but served him with a dose of reality. The implant that keeps the population of the future so controlled has been rendered useless in Creed and he is now trapped in a time where he cannot acquire more.

I loved the fact that Creed had his eyes opened that his time is not as perfect as he assumed. He is stuck in a past that is very different from his time. Shayla tries to help the stranded stranger even though she is convinced that he is crazy. Their time together makes him share more and more details of who he is and how he has lived. This gets Shayla’s curiosity piqued and she can’t help herself when it comes to assisting this sexy stranded stranger with the new desires that he is experiencing.

Passion Awakened is a great book, with minimal sci fi/futuristic components. Creed has traveled into the past to catch a fugitive. His past is (Shayla’s) our present day. The book is set in 2012. So if you ever thought you may want to give time travel books a try but didn’t want to read a book set in the future or the past this would be a perfect starting point. The futuristic aspect will not lose any reader with too much technical jargon. 


  1. Love time travels. This is a unique spin, though.

    1. I like time travels. I've found it is one of the few ways that I can handle a "historical." I do love reading a character who is out of there element though. So someone from the past in present time or someone from the future who goes back to a time that is not a technologically advanced is always a fun read!

  2. This sounds unique I don't think I have ever read one where the travel back is to now...

  3. i was lucky enough to win this. i loved it from beginning to end, it flows very well and you get in with the h/h i really enjoyed the love scenes, they were so sensually done and the story went with it
