Check out my review for Shanora Q. Williams’ latest release, DOOMSDAY LOVE. Loved this story. Drake and Jenny fight all odds for a second chance.
When we were ten, he treated me like a friend.
When we were eighteen, he wanted nothing to do with me.
And now that we are twenty-two, he longs to claim every single inch of me.
He was wild—untamed.
And I, a reckless girl, who loved too hard.
But, what we had was special.
I was his serenity and he my protector.
Drake was consumed by my love…
but he also took advantage of it…
He’d broken my heart—left me hanging for years.
He ruined us.
And, now, he’s back.
He wants me.
And I want to hate him, I really do.
But, who am I kidding?
No one can deny Drake Davenport.
You can’t hide from the almighty DOOMSDAY.
Because he is a fighter.
And, just like me, he loves hard.
He never loses and he will fight as hard as he can if it means winning me back.
Doomsday Love was an enjoyable read from start to finish. I liked Drake “Doomsday” Davenport’s character. His hard edge exterior carefully protected and blanketed an insecure and broken heart. Williams did a good job of giving both sides of this character throughout the book. The heroine of the story Jenny was a great balance of vulnerability and feisty. The back and forth chemistry and banter between Doom and Jenny created great humour and swoon worthy moments between the two of them.
I loved how this book was almost 2 books in 1 the first half being from the past and the 2nd half from present day. Williams did a great job of making sure the characters stayed true from past to present even though the story occurs over a span of about 12-13 years.
There were some great “Oh $hit” moments that were unexpected and added a good twist of events.
Overall the story had great flow and pace. Characters were developed and relatable.
