If you're thinking this is the typical MMA romance...you're wrong.

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.

I'm honestly speechless and heartbroken , heartbroken because I'm sad that it ended and I want more.
Shanora Williams knows to create swoon worthy book boyfriends and Drake Davenport is definitely on my top list.

Doomsday may be a beast, but his heart is like a butterfly . It’s gentle. It’s kind. It’s beautiful, but it is also wild.

This story made me feel like I was right in the book with these characters . Come June everyone need to one click .I promise you will not be disappointed.

I finished Doomsday Love and I love it! I couldn't put this book down. I love how Shanora developed the characters, how she built up the events leading Jenny and Drake eventually fall in love, and all the details she put in so that we really connect to the characters and fall in love with the story. I really appreciate that. I love Jenny so much, she is such an innocent lovely girl who loves with her heart wide open; I also love Drake, who is so quiet and thinks the worst of himself while he has ...more

One of the best things i could have ever done for myself in this book community was discovering Shanora Williams!

Shanora never ceases to amaze me with the stories she brings life, Doomsday Love is no exception to this!
So as you already most probably know Doomsday Love is the second chance romance of Drake Davenport and Jenny Roscoe!

MMA romance books aren't my thing, I like have nothing against them I just never found a book in that genre that fascinated me but if you know any of these books ple

Some books you read and you have no idea how you should review them because they did nothing for you

Other books you read and your mind is spinning on all the stuff that you want to tell other readers about them.

And then there are those books that you basically do not WANT to say anything about because no matter how little you tell it will still feel like you are stealing something of the feeling they evoked in you by voicing out loud anything about them.

I dont know where to start, Doomsday is told in two parts, you have the Jenny and Drake age 10, the little boy no-one dare to go near due to fear, family reputation, the way he dresses and his brooding features and then there's Jenny the well dressed princess on the opposite side of the fence, a little rich girl who even at her young age sees through all the charade and snobbiness of her classmates and she sees something more in Drake. Drake just wants to be left alone b

It's the hardest thing losing a parent or sibling. You never get over that loss, you try to move on but it will be there in your mind everyday. And when you have No one else after losing that loved one and you feel all alone. Your going to attached yourself to the first person who shows you any kind of compassion. I think Drake and Jenn they needed each other and frd off each other emotions. These two have strong bond, but it also went through he'll. It hurt to see what both characters went thro ...more

really knows how to make her
characters interact. The best part of this
book was when Chloe and Doom interacted.
I felt like I was there with them.
The emotion she evokes
literally jumps off the page. I felt
everything that these 2 where feeling

Childhood/second chance romances are

Aww my Drake and Jenny!! I loved their story. It starts out when they are children. They always had this amazing connection with one another and this story spans into early adulthood showing all the trials they face together and separately. This is just one of those stories that will stay with you and shows how true love can change not only who you are but your entire life.

No matter what kind of romance book Shanora Williams writes, she just nails it. Every. Single. Time. I was rocked to the core with everything that Drake Davenport and Jenny Roscoe went through in the entire book. I felt all the emotions it entailed the whole ride—and what a fanfreakingtastic ride that was! I mean, who would've thought that a hardcore, badass underground fighter could love as strongly and passionately as the almighty Doomsday? I read this book twice already and it just got a whol ...more

Shanora Williams just woos me time and time again. Doomsday Love is a heart wrenching story about two lost souls wandering through life, not living, not existing until they find one another. Drake Davenport is the mysterious, MMA fighter, bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Jenny Roscoe is the sweet, thoughtful and curious girl, that lives life with an open heart. Drake and Jenny first become the oddest of friends when they are ten. Without words, they both see the other, and they underst ...more

I have always been in love with Shanora Williams writing. She has knack for bringing out emotions that takes monumental moments in books from other authors. When I picked up Doomsday Love, I knew right away that this book would destroy me.

Drake and Jenny are what I would call the misfits of middle school. Jenny is a smart girl that has an inquiring mind and when she meets Drake she can't help but ask about a million questions. When her classmates start to make fun of Drake she stands up for him

I really struggled to get into this book. It's written in two parts and it's the first half that I had to strive to get through. The second half was so much better!

I've got to admit that YA is not a genre I particularly enjoy, so this needs to be taken into account when reading my review. However, I felt the writing style was just too immature for me and it was an effort to get through.
Also, as this is an ARC, I assume that its a pre-edited version but I've got to say that there are s

"He studied me like a piece of artwork, like I was some intricate masterpieces that no one could figure out. the kind of masterpiece that is too beautiful to replicate--too unique to pass by without a thorough glance."

"This moment was like none other. All this time I'd spent with him amounted to this single moment. There was no more tension. There weren't any more doubts or suspicions. Here, in this bedroom of mine, something budded, and it was big and bright and so beau

Synopsis: When we were ten, I was his friend. When we were eighteen, I was nobody. And now that we are twenty-four, I am everything he wants.
He was wild—untamed. I was reckless—a girl who loved too hard. But what we had was special. I was his peace and he was my protector.
My love for Drake was insatiable… and he 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 while a part of me hates him, no one can deny Drake Davenport.

**** 5 cranky stars ****

This is an out of bounds second chance romance; childhood friends turned lovers. Jenny and Drake have the kind of soul crushing love I’d say that turns into inevitable soul mates. Their journey is a rough ride, one with many struggles and few triumphs.

Drake had a childhood you don’t want to relive, being the boy with the bad attitude, pushed into situations he never wanted. Jenny was his ray of light, seeing the good side that Drake never showed others. Unfortunate circu

Okay, it wasn't an easy ride. But as I finished it my mind was wraped around only one thing: all the pain was worth.
It was my first book from this author, but she's so talented I was hanging on her every words.
I love MMA and second chance romances, so just mix them up and I'm totally into it. With this book, I've got both. And this story is so amazing. It's raw, honest and direct. A real love story.

Doomsday Love has made it to my #1 spot in my all time favorite books.
Shanora you are one of my favorite authors. You have written a masterpiece. This book is a second chance love story of two people love with the everything they have.
In this book you will experience love, heartache, pain, anger and forgiveness.

Drake Davenport was friends with Jenny at a young age. As they got older, he broke her heart. Now they are lovers and best friends.

This is the first book by Shanora Williams and I’m already a big fan! This book is an emotional roller coaster and will have you crying one page and laughing the next – I loved it!

The first half of the book is told from the “past” and the second half is told from present. We start off with Jenny as a child in school who notices a boy, Drake, in her class who is always showing up with bruises on his face and hands. The two form a bond and become friends. As teenagers Drake drops out of school to

From the start to the end you will be hooked on Jenny and Drake story. Their love comes from to different world's, but Jenny never sees it that away. Jenny never judges others and Drake is just waiting on her to do it. The two have off the charts chemistry, and be prepared for some steamy love scenes.

Pleased as punch that I've discovered another extremely talented author. Any story Shanora Williams writes will be a one-click purchase for me. Doomsday Love is  beautiful story that begins with a tender coming-of-age attraction and goes on to develop into a fully fledged albeit, turbulent adult love affair. There is so much depth of feeling to this book, and although Jenny and Drake face many obstacles on their road to being re-united—a road that is fraught with angst, frustration and demons fr ...more

Drake sure can easily please his woman with any request she has, “you wanna see me?” She bobbed her head. “That’s it?” She nodded again, eager this time when I grabbed the hem of it. “Alright.” Tugging the shirt over my head, I tossed it above the steering wheel and then looked down at her. “Good enough for you?” I really liked Drake and Jenny's relationship at times, she was so happy with him, "his mouth twitches as he points his gaze down at my hand.
