.

When I started reading this book it was late at night so I did not get to finish it but went to sleep with a smile on my face. (giggling) I finally got to finish it now (at work, oops, sorry boss)

.

It is full of laughter and suspense. The characters are awesome. The fact that there is POV for both Jordan and Sydney is fantastic. You get to feel what both of them are thinking and saying. Love it!

.

Some books leave u confused cause you don't know what the other character is thinking but not with "Surviving Sydney" If you want to laugh and cry at the same time then this one is for you. I think I will get my hubby to read this next...lol... The thinking that went into the writing of this book can only come from a genius. So thank you Shelby for a fanatic read. I loved every minute of it.

**Spoiler Alert**

.

Architect Hadley James, better known as “Trouble with a capital T” has left a string of shattered hearts and broken engagements across Europe and has now returned to Chicago on a mission to put her playgirl image behind her and to focus only on her career “alone”. Only problem is, she never expected on crossing paths with the mouth-watering Nobel Prize-winning physicist Scott Barlow and he will stop at nothing to claim her. Hadley is what and who he wants. He unfortunately is not the only one…. there is one who watches and waits. Someone from her past with a deadly agenda!

.

Having guilt issues and an erotic yearning for spanking that goes beyond just a physical fetish, Hadley’s therapist Seth, “Dr. Junk Science”, suggests she attends a BDSM club “Whips” where she will be blindfolded striped down and taken over a Dom’s knee. He will spank her until he thinks she’s had enough and then he will stop and leave the room. Nothing more… nothing less…..

.

After retiring from the university, at the young age of 40, Scott hunkers down over the bar at “Whips” and let’s a familiar voice coax a smile from him. Having an investing interest in the club, his long-time friend Ben tries to get him to play. Not having the energy nor the desire, he passes on the offer until he notices her…. an Island of calm in a sea of sexual frenzy. She is breath-taking with her curly black hair and sapphire blue eyes. A life-size porcelain doll! Ben gives him the rundown as to the reason why she is there and this intrigues him to a limitless bout of energy. He is no longer tired and the energy to play …… well let’s just say, game on and to hell with hard-limits!

.

Blindfolded Hadley is taken to a vacant room where she awaits her Dom “Markus” only it is not he who enters her world and turns it upside down. Her Dom only says one line after a searing kiss that leaves Hadley breathless and wanting. “We’ll meet again, Hadley. I’m the man you won’t leave at the altar.” Who is this man? Hadley fumbles to remove her blindfold to try and find out because she knows this was not her Dom “Markus” this was something….. and someone else. But before she can remove the blindfold, he is gone.

.

After a long 6 months of designing a facility for a man she has never met, Hadley discovers why she never got to meet him. Although her boss sees her as a great architect, he fears that where Scott Barlow was concerned, she was a liability to their firm. Scott has definite ideas about a woman’s place in the grand scheme of things and Len; her boss thought he would never accept Hadley as the liaison on his project. He was sadly mistaken. Scott has a hidden agenda and that was to get the vibrant sassy and cheeky Hadley to be his.

.

When I first started reading about how Scott was with Hadley, I was wondering how Hadley could and would ever fall in love with the Neanderthal Scott. Well as the story unfolds, you fall in love with Scott yourself. There is so much I could say about this book but too much of a spoiler is no good. Scott’s sister Sky will make your head spin with her sassiness.

.

Style of Writing: This book has a combination of all emotions, from the cheekiness of Hadley to the insistence of Scott and the boldness and sassiness of Sky. It’s full of humor, intrigue, romance, Love, and lust! The Love that Scott has for Hadley and vice versa is so moving. It’s a love that we all want to experience, a love we can hold onto. Shelby has brought her characters to life where we can be a part of this love story through her words. When reading her books including this hot romance, I feel as though I am one of the characters looking in and admiring everything and everyone around them. Buckle up ladies… You ride is about to commence and what a ride it is going to be.

After reading “Surviving Sydney” I was hooked to Shelby’s books and then after reading “Runaway Brat” the deal was sealed. I could not wait to read “Blessing” Let me tell you, this story is so awesome you would not want to put it down. Sadly everything comes to an end but unlike other stories, this ending is fantastic. Some stories you read, you feel as if you are left in an unsatisfied state because you would like to know what exactly happened to the characters and you don’t get the chance to find out so you are left hanging but not with “Blessing” This book is full of hopes, dreams, love, lust, laughter and so much more. I wish I had the correct wording to describe this book but I can only maybe with 1 word that comes to mind, tell you that it is “PHENOMINAL”. I love the POV of all the characters. The intense passion and the way their love unfolds! The story is so captivating from page 1 paragraph 1 to the very last. The sassiness of Abby had me laughing uncontrollably. I loved every second of this book. I will definitely recommend it to those who enjoy a good laugh and true love. Thank you for a fantastic story Shelby.

If I had to sum this short story up into one word, it would be “Feisty”

.

Jericho Kelly wanted justice for her older brothers death. She finds out that Rourke Simmons, the bane of her existence, the only man who ever rejected her and the only man she ever loved, has been contributing funds into a secret trust and that the trust is in her name. Seething and confused she confronts an old family friend Howard. He reveals that she has had a trio of “Guardian Angels” Rourke Simmons being one of them. She is angry beyond belief to think that he and the others could think of her as a charity case and vows to repay them all their money. Howard also reveals that they shut down the task force investigating her brothers murder.

.

Upset she stumbles from his office in search of a place to regroup and to plot her next move. On a mission to stop her from making a terrible mistake, Rourke reluctantly finds himself on a plain heading her way with the help of his two friends. Jericho is awakened by her worst nightmare, tanned, buff and every inch the Viking warrior, Rourke lounges himself in her favourite chair with sexy grin. Seeing each other for the first time in eight long years, their bodies take over and communicate their unspoken words. Love, lust, wild passion and unspoken fantasy's, take over and they become one. It’s a proven fact… redheads do have more fun! ;-)

.

I enjoy Shelby’s way of writing. The way she casts her characters with dual POV. This book is full of sass, love, amazing passion and fantastic humour.

**Spoiler Alert**

.

Classical violinist Ashling Michaels (Sophie) discovers she’s not who she thinks she is and that she is mated to 3 drop dead gorgeous men, a Wizard (Ethan), a Vampire (Marius) and a Wolf shifter (Cade).

.

An ancient prophecy states that three men, each representing a different species, will mate with a woman of extraordinary goodness and power and thereby avert the massacre of all humans. The co-mingling of their powers will bring about a karmic shift and unite all non-humans to the greater good.

.

21 years ago at the young age of 5, Sophie supposedly died in an avalanche and all 3 men were devastated. Little did they know at the time that Sophie actually teleported to safety. Now 21 years later they find out that their soul mate and beloved Sophie is in fact alive. They need to claim her and fulfil the prophecy but she doesn’t have a clue as to what and who she is so the claiming must be handled with finesse.

.

All 3 men have a mind of their own and with their own quirky comments had me giggling at their banter at one another.

When the times comes to who will be claiming their mate first. Ethan decides he will be the first. The seduction and sex scenes are “HOT”
While each man claims their mate in their own sexual way, Sophie realises how much she loves each and every one of them.

.

With a monster out to kill her and make a statement with her death, Sophie will go through some terrible ordeals. She will be tortured and humiliated and it will be brutal. Will her mates rescue her in time?

.

Style of writing: From beginning to end, this book had me laughing uncontrollably. The sassiness and cheekiness had me in hysterics. Feisty, sassy and cheeky describes Sophie. Sexy, fun and quirky describes her mates. Each character in this book has their own strengths and you will love each and every one of them. I have not mentioned any of the other characters like Drake, Delia, Justin and Max but let me tell you, there is a story to be told with Delia and Justin. Will there be a sequel? I truly hope so.

.

Delia: “The day I take orders from you is the day I trade my Lamborghini for a Ford. Get the picture, fur face?” o boy… we are in for a ride with this one.

.

I have read all of Shelby’s books and she surprises me every time. Each book has captivated me in its own way. This book was completely different to the others but just as enjoyable. I would love to know where she comes up with her ideas. This book has it all. Love, devotion, courage and so much more! Thank you Shelby for another fantastic read. Keep them coming, because I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.

.

Sexy as sin, Jace Malone, a detective –turned writer, has left the busy Austin City life for South Texas Plains peace and quiet….. Or so he thought! Ms Wild child and professional photographer, Sabrina Shelton returns to Serenity to settle her late grandfather’s affairs. What she didn’t anticipate was instead settling his affairs; she would settle her sights on a fine specimen of a man.

.

Jaw dropping gorgeous, Jace Malone had just become her own favourite choice of “WILD” But could she be enough for this drool-worthy man? After snooping on the internet to get to know a little more about him, and the kinds of books he wrote about, she realised that there was no chance in hell he would even look at her let alone be with her. All of her fantasies were just that…..fantasies.

.

For the first time in her life, she feels things she has never felt before. Will she be able to move on? Jace has sworn off women after his ex-wife showed him that women could not be trusted. Serenity had a few available women but none came close to tempting him except for one. She is exactly what and who he needs to complete him but believes what other have told him and that she is not marriage material and bolts at the first opportunity she gets.

.

She was temptation personified and he wanted her with every fibre in his body. Can he tame her and make her his? Will they overcome the interventions of others and become one? I was told that a short review is a better review so you will have to read the book to find out.

.

Shelby gives us something to look forward to in her books. I enjoy her way of writing and the way she casts her characters with dual POV. This book is full of sass, love, amazing passion and awesome humour. The sassiness of Bri had me in hysterics. Maybe we could get a story about Clay next? I would love to hear how he finds his one true love.

When I first came across one of Shelby's books "Surviving Sydney" I immediately fell in love with her writing as well as the person she is. Shelby never disappoints!

This book with keep you at the edge of your seat. I became apart of the characters lives. I was living this with them. The twists and turns... the hatred... the love.... it's so powerful.... you and the story become one!

.

I was enraptured from beginning to end and I have no doubt you will be too. VERY well written Shelby. I love you and your work. I love that you write with a dual POV so we get to know each character personally. The fears are real... the love is beyond comparison and the emotions run deep...

Cannot wait to see what comes next xxx
