Out of The Box Awakening by Jennifer Theriot is a story of compassion, love, and embracing your true feelings. Olivia is a woman who never does anything half way. She is the perfect woman, dedicated to her children, her husband, and her marriage. However, making sure that everything is perfect in the lives of her children and husband has taken a toll on her life. When her husband wants to move the family to another city, she agrees. But the new place had some new surprises, including finding out that her husband cheated on her.
Devastated, she found Ash. Ash, much like Olivia, is no stranger to taking care of everyone else. However, he too has suffered losses and his only solace is his music. When Olivia meets Ash, things are platonic and all about music. Together, they make a new family for themselves, a family that loves music just as much and appreciates them. But there is too much chemistry between Ash and Olivia, so much that it is getting hard to ignore it. Will they ignore their chemistry or will they take the leap of faith?
This story is so beautiful that it will take your breath away. This is not your usual romance where the protagonists of the story are in their late twenties and want to steam up every scene. This story is about mature people who understand the realities of life and have lived them in the most brutal fashion. When I say this is a love story, I don’t mean that in the usual sense. There are all kinds of love in this novel; the love of a friend, of a mother, of children, and the new budding love between a man and a woman. It is beautiful, soulful, and very lovely. I have already read it for the second time and it is just as amazing.
