Sweet Giselle captured me from the first page. It was very well written and the writer did a great job of making the scenes play out visually in my head. Poor Giselle, there were times that I wanted to choke her for making such dumb decisions and there were times where I just wanted to hug her and pray for her. She seemed to never catch a break and with every event that happened to her my heart broke. One thing that I liked about her character is that she was a fighter physically and most import ...more

" Sweet Giselle" was my first read by Author Karen Williams and let me tell you, this book took me on one wild ride! It is the story of Giselle, a young girl struggling to stay afloat after tragedy strikes. Her life seems to be falling apart right in front of her eyes...that is until she meets the rich and handsome, Giovanni. Giovanni wastes no time providing Giselle with everything imaginable. She thinks she's finally found the answer to her problems. But little does she know...her problems ha ...more

Wow! I love it when a book strikes different emotions within me! This one did just that! Giselle, sweet young and innocent Giselle, allowed herself to become captivated and totally swept by Giovanni! Giovanno was a MONSTER to say the least! I don't want to give the book away but this one had me tee-ed off, gasping in disbelief, and sometimes sad. It was very well written. This is the first book that I have actually read by Karen Williams but it won't be my last. I have others on my shelf that I ...more

This was a book that had my attention from beginning to end. Giselle had been through so much in her life that when she thought her knight in shining armour was there to rescue her she jumped at the change to be with him. After an unfortunate circumstance separates her from her husband she begins to learn more about her husband and the secrets he is trying to hide from her. This was the first book that I read by this author and I am looking forward to reading much more.

This is my first read by Karen and I loved it. It kept my attention from the first page. Suspenseful with so many mixed emotions.
well, i thought the book, was sumething, i never thought it be like that, that she got kidnapped by her husband enemies, all she was rape, and she feel in love with the only man that want to kill her husband, her husband is sumething, beat her up, and had guys gang rape her, and he didnt care one bit. i am so happy that she finally with the man she want to be with.

This book focused on to many things that are to strong for my taste buds. I am not for brutality against women and i hate pedophilia. It was just waayy to much. This book included a psycho child rapist,kidnapping,abuse,shootouts and lots and lots of murder. I do not recommend:/ But to each his/her own.

"Sweet Giselle" is one of my favorite books by Karen Williams. The story starts off with teenage Giselle who has a very easy life. However, one day it changes and soon everything goes downhill from there. Giselle starts to do things she never thought that she would do in order to provide for her and her brother. Giselle meets a man, who will eventually become her husband, and he introduces Giselle to alot of things that she thought she would never have or see. Giselle now has a perfect life, but ...more

This book was amazing! By the last page it definitely brought tears to my eyes. It's so crazy how many women actually do marry monsters and never have a clue about the things they are doing. Giselle went through entirely too much. I was happy to see character growth and change by the end. I would definitely recommend this book and I will be checking out other books from this author! Great read!
i love this book .
