"the fifth book in the Shifter series"

Cole's Awakening begins with Cole Sexton and his brother Chase being welcomed into the Draeger family after the death of their parents. Cole isn't all that happy about it but does so, one: to save his brother's life, and two: because Natasha Draeger won't take no for an answer. Much to Cole's surprise he finds his mate among the Draegers. Telling himself from day one she is too young, and her father and the other males of the family would kill him if they knew, Cole keeps his distance, or tries to. Does Cole have what it really takes to Claim his mate? After all these years will she even want to be his Mate?

Celine Draeger has known Cole since she was 12 years old. She's done everything she could to get him to see that she is his Mate and will keep doing what she can until he comes to realize it himself. Now with the death of her Grandmother, maybe she can convince Cole she is the one for him. She just has to prove it to Cole before it's too late.

This book also goes into more details of Chase and his capture. Cole now has to deal with not just wanting to claim a mate but with the fact his baby brother has grown up and is just as capable of handling his problems as Cole is. Is Cole ready to let go of the only remaining family he thinks he has left? Will he ever learn to let himself be welcomed into the Draeger family?

Cole's Awakening is the fifth book in the Shifter series and truly one of my favorites. Jaden Sinclair has once more drawn her readers into the lives of her characters. They feel for Cole and his struggles. They watch Celine grow up and her fight to get what she wants. They also watch Chase grow up and finally become the man he wants to be, with or without his brother's permission. Truly, a Shifter book to join the rest. Once more, a book that will keep the readers interested from the first page to the last.

Celine Draeger has always wanted Cole Sexton, and knew he was her mate—she just didn't know how she would make him hers. His code of honor towards the family prevents him from staking a claim, so she decided to do one herself.

Cole fights within himself for the one he wants the most. No other will do for him but Celine. Only he can barely take care of himself, so how is he going to care for a mate? That is the question which prevents him from placing a claim on her. But when Celine takes matters into her own hands, Cole finds he can't refuse her anything.

The heat of the full moon has come, so hot it is guaranteed to ignite a fire to burn the soul. An awakening has begun. But who will be consumed by it?
