Oasis- D L Gallie

I was given this book for an honest and unbiased review.

***** 4 1/2 FABULOUS STARS

My first read of a D L Gallic work and I'm hooked. Such fun to read, a total escape which is the backbone of this story.

Three college graduates decide to make a week of decadence at Oasis their final hurrah before entering the adult world. They'll play hard, live hard and party harder but No Boys!

Three equally fun loving guys, ready to embark on a great escape of their own, trip over their tongues

A fun and sexy story set in a beautiful tropical location, what more could I ask for?

DL Gallie perfectly captured the fun of a girls only getaway and added a little extra spice.

I recommend curling up with this story and chasing those winter blues away.

Oasis by DL Gallie is a story that has romance and comedy mixed together. This story will make you laugh in parts and needing to cool off in other parts. This is my first story by this author and I enjoyed her development of characters and her attention to details. She made you feel like you were right there with the characters. I enjoyed her writing style which pulled me in from the first word. The creation of characters are great as they all have a connection that you can see and they are true ...more

Oasis is a standalone contemporary romance novel by D.L Gallie and I really enjoyed it! This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was impressed by her nice relaxed writing style. The book was an easy read, had a nice storyline, a fast pace and some really great characters. I have to say the author did a really good job with describing the setting too as it sounded so beautiful and idyllic. The story is based around three friends who have decided to go on a girls ho

The story Oasis by DL Gallie is a romantic comedy book. This may be a story that will have you laughing and believing in finding love at the same time. It is the story of three friends that are on a getaway to the resort of Oasis to rest, unwind, and just plain have fun. While there are rules to begin with, they are soon abandoned with them meeting three incredibly hot guys. What is in store for these three friends? Will it include a chance of falling in love?

I had nothing to go on when I received this book, and I wasn't even sure what it was about! Thankfully, it was a romance novel, but while it was somewhat entertaining, it did have a fair share of problems.

Oasis by DL Gallie was a very quick, enjoyable read for me. It tells the story of three girlfriends who go on vacation “spring break style.

Oasis, by DL Gallie, is a romantic comedy novella. A set of friends going away for a girls' weekend following college graduation. This trip was to be nothing but fun, but no men... well, that rule may not last long once they meet a set of guys that leave them wanting much more.

Oasis was a downright hilarious read and each of the characters in this short story had unique and quite hilarious personalities. I read this novella straight through, start to finish, enjoying the fun and outright funny b

These girls sound like me and my girls when we used to get together and drink! they are silly, sassy and funny as hell! The heat level in this book is set on straight fire and will have you squirming in your seat(so it is best not to sneak and read this while at work ;) ) I was turning the pages to see what antics they would come up with next on their vacation journey. What a fantabulous getaway it was!

A hot summer sizzler. Ideal pool read…Oasis is the first book I have read by DL Gallie but it won’t be the last! It was a perfect summer read. A hot romance with a fab holiday location.
The story follows three friends Heather, Michele and Serena on their last fling after university before they settle down into adult job. They embark on a luxurious foreign holiday to the paradise resort of Oasis vowing “no boys allowed”. Their vow barely lasts the airport queue as they literally bump into 3 sexy

Oasis is by DL Gallie and the first book I have read by her. This was a hot and sweet short story which has three couples, though Serena and Blake and the main characters. The guys were young and seems to still have the frat boy feel to them at least at the beginning, especially Robert but he managed to surprise me a time or two in the book. There were several laughs and I plan on checking out more of her books.

This book was a great, chill-out, summer-fun read. It is an enjoyable story with some fun characters. Oasis will bring back fond memories to anyone who has been on a girl’s/guy’s summer holiday for some sun, sea, and romantic fun!
The story begins with a group of three girls, Serena, Michele, and Heather, making a pact to have a ‘no boys’ holiday. That idea, slightly predictably, lasts about 5 minutes. As soon as they get on the plane and clap eyes on the hot guys sitting across from them all bet

Oasis is a steamy novella by D.L. Gallie. It is my first encounter with this writer and I would not mind reading more of her works. This novella was a good introduction into her work! It is a standalone contemporary romance novella with the headline of “What happens in Oasis, stays in Oasis!” Sounds familiar, right?

This book by DL Gallie is a fun, sexy departure from the Liquor Cabinet series. Both types of books are equally enjoyable, but it is nice to see an author spread their wings and try out a different genre. This book is full of sexy banter and situations. The premise is that three friends, who are about embark on adult life, are headed to a beach resort to kick back and have a man-free vacation. That vow lasts almost through check-in at the airport when they meet three hotties in line. The three m ...more

I am giving Oasis a four star rating. D. L. Gallie certainly knows how to get the blood pumping. Three times over.
She writes a funny, hot, sexy, sexy, sexy book about six people, three couples and one week of fun and sex in the single hottest resort in the world, Oasis. Oasis is a terrific short read about fun in the sun, in the ocean, between the sheets . . .

This book is not what I would normally read. I felt that the story, especially the ending, was very predictable. I did not care for the language (the "F" bomb in almost every paragraph). It also has some explicit sex that could have been omitted also (along with with "F" bomb).

This was a shorter novel and I read it quickly because I passed over the parts that were objectionable to me. The basic story had potential to be cute and funny. This was not my type of story. This was given to me as a "bl

Oasis is a fun, sexy romance getaway story. It tells the story of three girls celebrating the end of one era and the beginning of another, and of three sinfully sexy men looking to enjoy a weeks break.
With temperatures high and drinks flowing, what starts out as innocent flirting, quickly turns into something much steamier.
This seriously sexy story is the first I have read by this author, but won't be the last. DL Gallie has a fantastic style of writing, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
