Olivia is a good woman, a good mother, a good wife. She’s got it made. She doesn’t want anything to change. Of course, it does... Swept from her perfect paper-doll life in Houston, Olivia finds herself in Chicago, alone, betrayed, and far from home. Soon everything she thought she knew about herself and her life will be challenged. She has only courage, love, and her passion for music to carry her through the maelstrom—or draw her further in. Ash is the man who has everything—everything except healing from the losses of a lifetime. His only peace lies in the sweet flow of music pouring from his guitar. What happens when the married woman and the handsome widower are thrown together by fate? Out of the Box Awakening is a story of shared passion and shared joy. Jennifer Theriot has written a compelling book about what happens when two people find new life and new love for themselves and for those around them.
Jennifer Theriot hails from the Great State of Texas. She is a career woman, working as CFO of a Texas based real estate investment firm, while happily living with her husband. Working in her capacity as CFO, she felt something was missing and discovered her passion for writing novels – mostly at night and on weekends. In her limited spare time Jennifer enjoys being outdoors; preferably somewhere on a beach curled up with a good book! Spending time with family and friends, watching a baseball game and enjoying a good bottle of wine are usually on her to-do lists. Jennifer is also ‘MiMi’ to two beautiful grandchildren and a mom to three grown children, all of whom she adores. Theriot is an admitted music junkie, loving every type of music, which takes up most of the memory on her iPhone. She listens to music from sun up to sun down and her love of music is reflected a great deal in her books. Jennifer took a chance that there could be an interest in romance with middle aged couples who are finding themselves at a crossroads and wrote her debut novel Out of the Box Awakening, which centers on the hope of finding happiness and passion through unexpected heartache. It emphasizes the need for family and friends as Jennifer has learned in her own life. The book has been described as "Mature Sexy" by one reviewer. Jennifer is currently working on her second book, Out of the Box Regifted, and she has books 3 and 4 of the series in the works. Jennifer also has plans to co-write a new series, with a good friend, who shares her same passion for a good romance novel in the near future.
Review by Brenda's Book Beat
Out of the Box awakening by Jennifer Theriot
This book was exceptionally aware of what happens to marriage as the years pass. I enjoyed the writing very much the explanations of feelings felt almost as if they could be autobiographical, it was a great read. Romance after 50 isn't dead! Just read the book and see.
This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
