REVIEW | Doomsday Love by Shanora Williams


Title: Doomsday Love
Author: Shanora Williams
Genre: MMA & Second Chance Romance
Release Date: June 16, 2016

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.


5 Stars!

This is the first book I have ever read by Shanora Williams, and somehow I know it won’t be the last. Doomsday Love is all about second chance at love. I read this book under two days, yes it’s long but it’s worth it, it’s very beautiful and very emotional. This book is one of a kind. It’s sexy, sweet, lovely, cheesy and yet so heartbreaking. Drake is one of kind bad-boy and Jenny is one of a kind good girl. Both from the different parts of the world, poor and rich, the bad and the good. I was drawn in immediately from the very beginning til the very end. I loved it. I love how we got to see the both sides of the story, I love the alternation between the past and the present. It starts with the past, of how Drake and Jenny met, how they became friends, how they became lovers and it ends with the present, giving us clues of how they separated, what drove them apart and what ultimately brought them together.

Since the loss of his mother, all Drake knows is to fight. Everyday is fighting to survive, and fighting to make end meet. Even though the years have passed since the day her brother committed suicide, the event still haunts Jenny from time to time, her brother was her best friend, her shoulder to cry on, he was her everything. Jenny knew of Drake when she was little, but she never officially met him, and that’s until they were partnered up in fifth grade. When their classmates start gossiping about Drake, and talking bad things about him, Jenny decided to defend Drake, and the moment Drake heard her defend him, that’s when he decided that he wanted to be friends with her. And so on every recess Jenny and Drake would swing in the school yard, they became good friends and Jenny gave him, her brothers cross necklace as a sign of her friendship. And they were friends until Jenny was send to a private school. There she met Kylie, who became her best friend. After a while Jenny decided to return to the public school she used to go to, even though her parents disagreed. That’s when Jenny and Drake meet again. Even though Jenny wants more, Drake can’t give her that, so he pushes her away, not wanting to her feelings and in process hurt his, if she found out the truth and left him. That’s until the day, he sees her at one of his fights at the Dirty Dawg Pit. They lock eyes and Drake can see the fear in Jenny’s eyes, so he thinks that’s it. When they by chance meet at a little restaurant close to the Dirty Dawg Pit, Jenny pushes him away, but he can’t let her get away so he follows her and finally after so much time, he kisses her, the kiss is not what he expected but from that moment on all he can think about is Jenny. That’s when they start dating. Their relationship goes amazing until one day changes all for them.

Now, in the present, a few years have passed since the last time Jenny and Drake heard of each other. Jenny is in Las Vegas with her so called ‘boyfriend’, when she reunites with Kylie who begs her to attend a fight with her, but Jenny declines because she knows that if she goes to the fight, she will have to face Drake. But when her so called ‘boyfriend’ forces her to go with him, she can’t deny, because she knows what will happen if she says no. Drake Davenport, now a famous professional wrestler never expected to see the love of his life at one of his match, curled under other man’s arms. He still remembers Jenny, she still is his love, so when he sees that guy putting his arm around his woman, he finishes the match in under 3 seconds, only thinking about Jenny’s boyfriend, while beating his opponent. After the match he asks her to met with him, and she goes, but only because of the cross, the cross she once gave to Drake for safe keeping. When Drake asks Jenny to spend her remaining days in Las Vegas with him, she accepts and once again they are back into each other arms, safe in each other embraces. So what will happen when Drake finds out the secret Jenny has been keeping from him since the day they reunited in Las Vegas?

Highly recommended to everyone who loves books about second chance and true love. This book is a FIVE STARS read for me. Hopefully you will enjoy the book as much as I did.
