Book Dame’s Rating 5 Star
One of the very first authors that I met when I joined the Confessions of a Book Blog, was Beverly Preston. She was promoting her first novel No More Wasted Time, she had so much passion and was very sweet that I had to read it!! Well, I loved it!! I was really excited to learn it was going to be a series. I was thrilled to get an early peak at Shayla’s Story. Then shocked and nervous, besides honored when she asked for a phrase review for the back of the book!! And its all true, I really loved this book!!
“I devoured this book, even when I tried to put this book down it consumed my thoughts! Captivated by Shayla and charmed by John. Shayla’s Story will have you engrossed and yearning for more.”
I loved No More Wasted Time, but this book is equally as intriguing. I read countless books, so I’m amazed when a story comes across as fresh, exciting and charms me. I lived in this story!! I devoured this book, Shayla is such a vivid character even with her broken past she comes across as naive. I felt little cracks in Shayla, the wall she had built to protect herself had started to fracture. Realizing her life was not leading to the right destination, maybe a good safe life wasn’t all she needed or wanted!! Shayla really feels a pull towards John, one she would like to ignore. But John is just what she needs and his push makes her brave to live her life and take chances!! John will charm you and warm your heart. This story is more then a book it lives and breathes. You will feel it in your heart and soul!! A must read!! So if you are looking for an amazing story, one that sticks to your heart and excites you too? Well, look no further this is it!!!
And if you haven’t read NO MORE WASTED TIME, get to it!!
Book Dame’s review
Get to know Author Beverly Preston:
Beverly Preston has been a stay at home mom for the past 21 years, though she prefers the title Domestic Engineer, raising four amazing kids. Along the way, she worked side by side with her husband Don, the love of her life, designing and building custom homes. As her children begin to venture out on their own, she’s left to shed a tear, (for a minute) wonder what’s next in life, and embrace the feeling of empowerment that surely must’ve been wrapped in a present she received on her fortieth birthday.
Beverly woke up one morning from a horrible dream that her husband had died and she was in Bora Bora saying her goodbyes. After weeks of worry and torment, she realized it was simply a bad dream and her husband wasn’t going anywhere. However, she still thought about that tiny fragment of a dream for months before turning it into No More Wasted Time.
