Casey Says…..

Abruption was my first read by authors Riley Mackenzie and I was really excited to give them a shot!!

Having a short medical background and knowing the setting of the book had a lot in the medical field it left me intrigued to start and then absorbed throughout the entire book.

The story opens up with a young Guy Hunter, building his life and his family the way he has always dreamed. Fast forward 4 years and things don’t always go as planned. Raising 2 very young kids as a single father, Dr. Guy finds himself bitter, grumpy and extremely overwhelmed. Make no mistake though- this guy is a dream, he is sweet, compassionate and absolutely loves his kids to the moon and back. It shows in every bit of his actions.

“There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part, so just give me a happy middle and a very happy start.”


Jules, a pediatric nurse fighting her own demons- meets Guy when she is caring for his son Finn. Things are very rocky to start but quickly turn into an attraction that you know is going to not only set your sheets on fire but your heart as well.

“I forgot what it felt like. To Breathe. I forgot, and it feels so good.”

Told in dual POV, Riley Mckenzie painted a vivid picture of bringing two soul mates to life. I felt the passion and love of not only the characters but for the authors writing as the story unfolded. I am excited for more from these authors in the future!!

About Riley Mackenzie

Yep. That’s an “s.” There are two of us!

We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.

It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o’clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).

When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?

Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.

So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
