Review of Date Out Of Water by DelSheree Gladden

Shark Out of Water(#2 Date shark) by DelSheree Gladden released last week on 21st October. Let me tell you it's an Awesome series! And the first book Date Shark is free! So grab it, you won't be disappointed.

Shark Out of Water is about Guy San Laurent (Gee SanLauren, he doesn't like when it is Americanized). 

Blurb of Shark Out Of Water 


Guy Saint Laurent is too busy cursing his sister for roping him into taking over Eli's Date Shark business to prepare himself for the slew of bizarre women he's about to get involved with. This is the last venture he intended to take on, but somehow he's just become Chicago's newest, most reluctant Date Shark.

On top of dealing with bug-toting, mothering, obsessive women, Guy faces personal tragedy that changes his outlook on life, whether he wants it to or not. He's not sure what it is about Charlotte Brooks that draws him in, but getting her off his mind after a brief encounter proves impossible.

As Charlotte tries to help Guy deal with his loss, he begins to get the impression she's hiding something from him. He knows he could simply walk away, continue as he always has, but he suspects whatever she's hiding, she won't be able to face it alone.

Charlotte is the one woman who can capture his attention, but she may also be the one woman capable of breaking him.
 

My Review

Shark Out of Water (Date Shark, #2)Shark Out of Water by DelSheree Gladden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow!! It was awesome!! which is not that shocking cuz DelSheree's all stories are.
I never thought of Guy (Gee, don't want to upset him) that much in Date Shark but got to know him more closely; his thoughts and his life. I loved the whole story. Him being Chicago's newest, not-so willing Date Shark was really nice. This story showed new side of him, which I didn't thought of him in first book. The journey through the book was heart warming.
Love it!!! <3
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the second time me reading the book, first being the rough draft, I got the opportunity to beta read the book. It was nice as said in the first review got to know Guy.
The second time reading was awesome with all the edits and changes. It was PERFECT!!
I love Guy even more, he is sweet, just awesome! His french and his accent, lol made me grin, Oui!! His endearments, just melts me especially ma cherie , mon petite amie . It sounds so sweet, well imagining him saying but it ain't hard to, I was in tune with Guy it was natural, just love him.
All the family Carmody Eli, Leila (my fav couples, now Guy and Charlotte too) Vance, Sabine, Guy's parents and every in the book are awesome!! They are a big family.
Little ones were just sweet Waarren, he is adorable and understanding but also a kid, love him too and Lilly, just can't say how adorable both are, the book is so well written, it was a movie watching experience.
The zoo scene, where Guy's fear for Dumbo, made me see his point of his weariness. In first book it was so hilarious, every time I saw dumbo pic on fb and let me tell you it was often I can't stop laughing but now I just can't. In first part I thought he was dork, but this book, wow I'm happy to got to know him.
The last chapter was PERFECT!
The whole journey was sweet, sad, some moments filled with dread for Charlotte and happiness, it is Awesome.
A definitely a must read!!

The Curves Ahead 

The Curves Ahead by Blondeanddangerous. Woaow!! The story is awesome. I've came across it recently, and I like it. I completed all twenty four chapters in one sitting. It's not completed yet, it's getting updated. I don't know when but it get's updated once a week. 
 
The story is about an overweight woman, and how she overcomes her insecurities. It may seem there are many stories like that, but it not only about the main character overcoming her insecurities, there are many other issues highlighted. The story is well written and I enjoyed it.

The last stop of their trip, in that the author have written her trips so, lol I don't have word but it's perfect. Happiness should not depend on anything, even a small thing cuz if it's lost you will be unhappy, that's so true. Happiness shouldn't depend on anything.

I recommend this book, it's a must read and it's on top in What's Hot list on Wattpad

Shark Out of Water

This is the last venture he intended to take on, but somehow he's just become Chicago's newest, most reluctant Date Shark. 

On top of dealing with bug-toting, mothering, obsessive women, Guy faces personal tragedy that changes his outlook on life, whether he wants it to or not. He's not sure what it is about Charlotte Brooks that draws him in, but getting her off his mind after a brief encounter proves impossible. 

As Charlotte tries to help Guy deal with his loss, he begins to get the impression she's hiding something from him. He knows he could simply walk away, continue as he always has, but he suspects whatever she's hiding, she won't be able to face it alone. 

Charlotte is the one woman who can capture his attention, but she may also be the one woman capable of breaking him.




Charlotte was breathless when he pulled back, and the plaintive expression on her face killed him, but he had accomplished his goal. He gestured to the IV hooked to her arm and Charlotte stared at it in surprise. “I didn’t even feel it!”
“I told you I could distract you.”
“Damn near distracted me, too,” the nurse muttered. 




Excerpt

Vance was smart enough to see signs that Guy was now on the defensive. He redirected, asking, “Tell me about Charlotte. Why are you having deep conversations with her instead of flirting and seducing her back to your flat?”
Sulking like a child, Guy muttered, “Je ne sais pas.”
“You don’t know?” That seemed to truly surprise Vance. “Well, I suggest you find out.”
“What?” Guy snapped. “That is your advice to me? Find out?”
Vance nodded. “Oui, mon ami. Find out why Charlotte has done what it has taken me years and years to do. Why let down your barrier between public and private for someone you barely know when I had to practically force you to do the same thing today.”
“Why?”
“Why?” Vance repeated. “Because you need to know. You won’t stop obsessing about her until you do.”
Obsédé? Who says I am obsessing over her?”
Vance folded his arms across his chest. “She is in your thoughts so much that you mentioned her name when you clearly had no intention of revealing her to me.” Leaning forward, he looked at his friend seriously. “Guy, I have known you for a long time. You have surprised me today, but I know how you can be like a dog with a bone. You’ll drive yourself crazy wondering what it is about Charlotte that got past your defenses until it either drives you crazy or you figure it out. Given the line of work we’re in, I’d suggest figuring it out.”
“I thought I was here to talk about Patricia,” Guy grumbled.
Leaning back with a smirk, Vance said, “We are. Just had to find something you wanted to talk about even less to spur you on, apparently.” He shook his head when Guy rolled his eyes. “Something else is bothering you when it comes to Patricia. The funeral is tomorrow. You’re avoiding talking about it. Why?”
Guy did not respond right away. His breathing escalated to the point that Vance reached forward and put a hand on his shoulder. “Her parents… they came to see me at the hospital.”
“How did they react?”
Shaking his head, he still struggled to understand their reaction. Instead of answering Vance’s new question, he answered the original one. “They requested I stand as a pallbearer.” His head fell into his hands. “I don’t know if I can. It is too difficult.”
“It will undoubtedly be difficult,” Vance said with compassion, “but it is difficult for Patricia’s parents as well. They see you as the one person who truly tried to help her. I think it comforts them to think of you being there to help her on this one last transition.”
“I don’t know if I can do this for them.”
Vance squeezed Guy’s shoulder. “You don’t have to if it is too much.”
“Not doing it feels like a betrayal of Patricia.”
“Guy, don’t make this about Patricia or her parents. What do you feel comfortable with and how do you want to say goodbye to Patricia?”
That was not an easy question. Guy sank back into the chair. Vance waited with the patience of a saint as Guy forced himself to confront the answers. He had been through so much with Patricia, watched her move forward only to fall so far again and again. She never stopped trying, and he never stopped trying to help her. “I want to help her this one last time,” Guy said finally.
“Then call Patricia’s parents when you get home and tell them you’ll be there.”
Feeling more at peace, Guy nodded.
“Stephanie and I will be there as well.” Vance held his friend’s gaze for a moment longer, making sure he knew he did not have to face the funeral alone. When Guy’s shoulders relaxed, Vance sat back. “Now why don’t you tell me about the day you met Patricia?”
As Guy began recounting the first time Patricia came into the crisis center wanting to talk about everything from the side effects of the medications she was taking to how her puppy would not stop peeing on her kitchen floor, his thoughts returned to Vance’s earlier challenge. Patricia had struck a chord with him, and so had Charlotte, in surprisingly similar ways. He understood why he has connected with Patricia, a struggling and confused young woman, but Charlotte was more of a mystery. What would it take to find out why Charlotte had affected him so much?

Review of Inquest


Inquest: Volume 1 of the Destroyer TrilogyInquest: Volume 1 of the Destroyer Trilogy by DelSheree Gladden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow it's that only I feel. The story end just left me wanting more. The story is so unpredictable, I couldn't even assume what is going to happen. When I thought I know what will happen just then another twist. It totally got me hooked. I was up till 1 in the morning, the story from middle got so intriguing that I couldn't stop from finishing it. I totally loved Inquest, I am looking forward to read the series. DelSheree you are awesome your other books that I read are also just great. I am going to read all your other stories, I just can't get enough of your writing.:)


******************************************************************************************************
Well I finished reading Inquest, well again. And I love it even more, it's just awesome.This is my second time reading review and it contain's spoiler but not that will give away the plot.
It's been months when I first read it. Now it's different as I know what will happen but I really enjoyed it. I disliked Lance even though I know he will come back to Libby but I can't help it, well it's not as strong as I read first time but I enjoyed and love Milo, lol as at first was suspicious of his intentions, but this time I knew so I loved his shrugging behavior as I can picture him. Now also I'm saying it's a definitely read.

Secret of Betrayal (Destroyer, #2)Secret of Betrayal by DelSheree Gladden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received the copy in exchange of an honest review.*
I don't want so much well because I have finished reading Darkening Chaos. I just couldn't post my review as my net was not working, it's good I wrote down what I felt. I will post the same thing.
Darn! it ended :( but I don't mind *evil grin* I've third book to devour.
When I first read Inquest, after completing I zoomed to Smashwords to read first 20% of the book which after being through 3 chaps I realized it was third book. For that I stalled reading the Trilogy, till I forgot details. So I started now book two is out of the way and on book three.
I just can't put in words, and scared and excited about book three, it will end and afraid to let it go.
I don't want to dislike Milo and want Libby with him but Branden is that awesome, with whole things to find out and the chaos and anticipation, the prophecy and decision to choose between Braden and Milo it's a whole roller coaster ride.
The betrayal, I'd never have guessed it would be him and I don't feel betrayed with Libby.
Beauty in aftermath of Destruction. This line just stuck with me and I believe in it too.
It's definitely a must read

Darkening Chaos (Destroyer, #3)Darkening Chaos by DelSheree Gladden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

* I received copy in exchange of honest review. *
I'm sad it ended, I'm so not ready to give it up and let them go. It's 5 in the morning, it' okay it's Sunday, I know I'll have book hangover in every sense physically and emotionally. This whole series was emotional roller coaster for me.
Every secrets getting revealed purposes and it coming to an end.
It was perfect and I love how it ended all lose end tying up. Knowing what will happen with characters from outside and being happy you already guessed. I was happy enjoyed the whole adventure being on edge and scared if your fav and most connected character dies.
*Spoiler*
That happens, darn it I knows he betrayed and joined opposite side but I connected with him in first part and didn't much like him in second and disliked what he did in this part, but that doesn't mean I wanted him dead. It was really difficult to Love or Hate him, but I love him even being a little vindictive.
When I read what Milo was doing and he died, I stopped reading and cried and sobbed and am now too just thinking.
The emotional stall on me.
She chose Branden I love him, I was going to choose him in the last book only, he is awesome!!!!
It ended perfectly and hope really really hope there is story about Libby and Branden's child. I'm not giving away whether the baby is girl or boy, you have to find that out.
It's absolutely a definitely a must read Trilogy. I highly recommend it.
I will read this Trilogy again and again but I want time, but it's re-read Trilogy.

It's over but I'm not giving up, and you will know why when you finish the book. Enjoy and I know you will and you will get hooked and wouldn't care and would not want to come out too.

Happy reading!

Review of The Awakener 

The Awakener (The Watchers of Men, #1)The Awakener by Amanda Strong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received copy of this book by the Author for honest review.*
'The Awakener' is the first book of Author Amanda Strong I've read but it won't be last. I loved it. The whole book was a roller coaster. I didn't wanted it to end, always checked if it is going to end. I thought after their fight with the demons, it will conclude after one or two chapter but it didn't, it would have been huge cliffhanger. Got to know everybody's special talent and their mission.
The title 'The Awakener'; I know and understand it completely now. Before reading the book I thought what it would mean. It's cool Eden being an Awakener and awakening the inner self or talents of people, which at first was embarrassing for her: hugging people without her consent and being clueless. Which along with her dawned on me simultaneously the doing of her Guardian.
All the characters where different, but my favorite was Trent, he was the source of humor, he made me laugh out loud. The most when he found out his Guardian appearance or gender, lol, I couldn't help but laugh, given the situation and the danger.
Micah and Eden being the main characters, but didn't felt left out about others. Not everything was revealed much about them but they are also finding about themselves. Will get to know in next book in the series and I'm looking forward for it.
The thrill about their adventures engulfed me and the description was vivid, it was like I was watching a movie.
I'm craving to know more. It's a must read.
