Release Blitz for Gabriel by Leah Sharelle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love series. I love when an author writes about a second generation of a series even more. It’s like taking a trip home, and visiting with old friends! When I found out this author was going to be writing about the kids of the Wounded Souls MC, I flipped! I couldn’t contain my excitement! And even though there is always a bit of doubt (I mean really, could it get any better than the Wounded Souls?!? ) I knew I’d never be disappointed with anything this author writes.
Devon has had a horrible life. A childhood tragedy follows her into adulthood, keeping her from really living life to the fullest. A neglectful, but still overprotective, family leaves her feeling alone, even when she isn’t. She is just moving through life, day by day, when she stumbles across Gabriel. Then life starts to heat up!
Gabriel was brought up surrounded by family, love, and support. He can’t fathom anything else. He has followed his dreams, (and his father’s footsteps!) becoming a top commando in the Australian Army. But there is still something missing from his life. He wants the kind of love his parents have, the kind of love all of the Souls guys have. He has high expectations for what love is, and won’t settle for less. One look at Devon, and he knows. She is it!
This book wasn’t as hard core as the Wounded Souls books. Don’t get me wrong. The danger and excitement is there, but Gabriel and Devon’s story was more about family, and support. It was a great story, and their connection was absolutely beautiful! I can’t wait for the rest of the Commando Team 5 to find their HEA!
I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn’t happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don’t do angst, in fact it drives me crazy.
