Product Description

Product Description

Coming from a troubled home where no one loves her, Miya Jenkins turns to the only people who ever cared – the Walkers. Her best friends, Cate and Caden, always have her back and their parents treat her like a second daughter. She’s smart, dedicated to her education, and focused on success. Miya learns to trust her instincts and never relinquish control, all while enjoying what life and men have to offer. Trust is a hard thing to come by for Miya, and she refuses to open up her heart. Like the willow tree under which she lost her innocence, she bends but doesn’t break.

Caden Walker – always there for her, always protective, always a comfort, but wanting more.

Miya refuses to reveal her inner self, not even to him, and she’s not willing to sacrifice their friendship. She wants a normal life, to feel anchored in the safety of someone’s arms, but she wonders if anyone can ever tear down the high walls built around her heart. Is it possible the walls already began to crumble beneath that willow tree? Will all of her successful endeavors lead her to the one she thought most unattainable?

WARNING: This books is intended for adults only due to its sexual content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice NA 15 August 2015
By Tawnya Ward - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Nice new adult story about coming of age. The story lags at points because of the details and lack of timeline. Character has nice build up. Miya tho seems to be pretty dense about how Caden feels about her. Going so far as to deny that there is anything between them. The brains she shows in her schooling should have shown her the truth. Caden does all he can short of strapping Miya to a bed to get her to admit to the truth.

I will not be reading Caden's story. I do not see the point.

This book was given to me for my honest review

As a young child we all remember playing the infamous peek a boo. A game that consists of covering ones eye with our hands and opening them really quickly saying the words peek a boo. We all remember getting many laughs with hoots and hollers too. The game in itself is fun and easy, cute and memorizing with a bunch of giggles. Looking more into peek a boo have you ever imagined that peek a boo could be just a glimpse into our future? Could playing peek a boo at a random time have us looking into the eyes of our future?

Caden-hunky, sexy, reserved

Cate-Caden’s sister and Miya’s best-friend

Miya-strong, sweet and driven

Miya is a woman that was dealt with cards that no woman at an early age should have been dealt. As she starts her life she understands that it is best to make lemonade than to hold on to lemons that could end up sour if she let life pass her by. Her two best-friends Caden and Cate along with their family stand by Miya with the hopes to keep this woman on a path through a womanhood she so richly deserves. Along the way Miya finds out that love is so strong but letting it in to her heart is so hard but what happens when one man that has been with her along the way turns out to be the one man that captures her heart and has always had it?

Cate is a strong woman that helps keep Miya on the straight path but along the way has found her own love will this strong woman continue to support Miya or will her own path take forefront?
Caden a strong young man that has grown up to be a stronger man has always had big dreams and has succeeded in everything he wishes to accomplish. One love has always been in his forefront though as he continues along his path in life this one woman has always been there for him as he is for her but as he loves from a distance will one circumstance come into play that brings his heart to completeness?

From the beginning of their journey Miya and Caden have had it hard. Miya from a childhood though tough at first turns out to be this amazing woman that has set goals for herself with a bunch of support from Caden and his family she succeeds beyond their wildest dreams. Caden has been a strong force with love in his heart for Miya that he has kept hidden to all but her. Though Miya and Caden take great different paths in life one force that continues to bring them together has always been the love that they share. The sex between the two is hotness but hidden which makes it even greater. Will Caden and Miya find their forever with each other or will they take different paths and forever be just be? This is their journey.

To the author: You have made me cry, scream, laugh and have “Oh No they did not” moments. You have shown readers that with strength anything is possible if you only have the will to make lemonade from lemons. To be strong with emotion is not weak but honor worthy. That your heart truly knows forever if you only take the time to listen.

To the readers: Sit back and enjoy

Happy Reading
4.0 out of 5 stars Good story. 12 February 2015

This is one of those stories that I really look forward to. It contained so many different elements that I like that it would be hard not to enjoy it. I enjoy stories that have a character that overcomes tragic events from their childhood, friends turned lovers, and a happy ending.

But this book included so much more than that. Usually friends turned lovers are separated for years for some reason. That didn't happen with Miya and Caden. They are together so much it's ridiculous.Caden's family takes her in after she finally leaves her parents. They are roommates in college (along with Caden's sister Cate) so their lives are completely entwined. Each of them date and sleep with other people. They go on with their lives pretending that there is nothing between them.

I just wanted them to admit their attraction and get on with their relationship. They missed so many opportunities to admit how they felt. I was so frustrated with them that I just wanted to smack some sense into them.

I loved that Miya found her inner strength. She came back from a rough childhood and learned to stand on her own two feet. She set goals for herself and works hard to achieve them. I admire her determination.

Overall, it was a pretty good story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Touched My Heart - it's a must read! 10 April 2015

Awakening the Willow’s heart is Caden and Miya’s story.
Miya hasn’t had an easy start to life but she’s had her friends Caden and Cate (who are siblings) and their parents. She’s sweet, strong and determined. She holds tight to her control and wants to love but isn’t sure she can or should open her heart.
Caden has always been there for her, is her protector and is intertwined with her and with his family in ways that I fell in love with. He loves Miya and would do anything for her.
I don’t want to give anything away or leave any spoilers.
This is their story. Will Miya relent and sacrifice their friendship for something deeper? Can she have that normal life and allow herself to love and feel safe in his arms? Will Caden succeed in tearing down Miya’s walls?
I adored this book. I feel like the author was speaking or drawing from personal experience…that’s how real it felt. The underlying story of hope, strength and perseverance in the face of insurmountable difficulties. The emotions are raw and pull at you but it’s all worthwhile.
I would definitely recommend this book!

Endeavors series starts out with Miya’s story. I love how author Jacqueline Anne has really brought a story with heart and soul. We get to see Miya grow up. From her abusive parents to the people who are sweet enough to take her in. Miya has always been a good person at heart despite all the troubles she has had in her life. She has a great best friend in Cate. She even develops a friendship with her brother Caden. That relationship turns to love when they get older. I like the progression from childhood to adulthood and the feelings changing. It felt right and real that she ends up with Caden.
This is Miya’s journey from darkness into the light. I really loved her. I wanted her to have her happy ending. I hope Cate’s story is next. She too deserves a happy ending. I cannot wait to see what this series hold for the future. Ms. Anne does a great job of making me love and want more of her characters and their story. Awakening the Willow’s Heart is a must read for anyone who loves a good coming of age story and a happily ever after.
