Awakened by Love is sweet love story between Zoha, pre-med student, born in Muslim family and Ethan, enology student born in one of the richest family Napa valley.

They meet one day in the library and the sparks fly. It takes a lot of time for Zoha to give in. She is torn doing what she wants and doing what her family excepts of her, between what she believes and what she is suppose to believe. She is caught between two worlds and will take a lot of courage to make her own path. She has a bit of rebellious steak, she removes scarf whilst in college, but will it be enough?

I love the dynamic between them. The way Ethan loves her the way she is and at the same time encourages her to be free, to take charge of her life. We see love grow from reluctant start and as the love grows, so does Zoha. I can't wait to see what will she become.

I was really interesting to read from perspective of another culture. I've near read a book from the Muslim point of view. It interesting to see that even though the culture is totally different from mine, is a lot alike at the same time. People everywhere struggle with acceptance, with finding yourself, doing what you are suppose to do. 

I really like the book and can't wait for the next one, because the ending was a bit sad...

Happy reading,
