Start your review of Gabriel ( The Wounded Sons #1)
We absolutely loved this story from beginning to end and everything in between.I am so glad that the author decided to do a next generation series as we hated leaving the characters of the Wounded Souls behind as they are all embedded in our heart and we miss them so much.

One thing that comes to mind is that Gabe is his fathers son in all the ways that count.We loved Gabriel and that he wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps but, one thing is for sure is that his father is a bit of a legend

Great googamogga was this book hot totally melted right off the page. When I found out that Leah Sharelle was going to do a next generation of the wounded souls I did a happy dance because I didn't want the series to end . There's not a lot of books that I've read over the years that have had a profound effect on me I can honestly only name a handful and the wounded souls series is one of those so you can imagine how ecstatic I was to hear that the kids of wounded souls were getting

Well Hell on a insta-love Harley Davidson.

This book was actually quite endearing.
You can tell, even without the Forewords, that Leah has done her research on Australian Military.

The Wounded Sons follow in their fathers footsteps, in everything from love; loyalty; the club; and almost all of them serve.

One devastation after the next has left Devon at an impasse. Her entire life has come down to one defining day, two moments that changed everything. But Gabriel breaths life back into her.

Without a doubt this author has done it again, she has brought to life amazing characters, a sense of family and camaraderie that wraps you up with its warmth, a touch of drama that has you wondering what is going to happen next, a wonderful romance that fills your heart and a hefty dose of humour that leaves you laughing.

Gabriel is a chip off the old block for sure, he definitely is Booth’s son but has a wonderful dose of Stella in him of course. I have to

OMG...……………………………………………..Brilliant Book
I was pulled into this story from the get go, that is where I stayed until I had read every single word that was written.
There are twists, turns and surprises, awaiting you in the pages of this book. Some of the surprises you may see coming, some you won't. Some are large while others are small, but each and everyone is equally important to the story. They all have a hand in making the book the awesome read that it is.

It is no secret that I absolutely love every book Leah Sharelle has written and Gabriel did not let me down.

Gabriel is the only child to Booth and Stella (His Honey) and has followed in his father's footsteps and became a Green beret.

Devon has not had a easy life. After tragedy strikes her 3 times she is left feeling alone, like a burden and unloveble. Until one sunny day on a sand dune fate gave Devon a lifeline in the form of a tall, hunky soldier.

Life isn't that easy though. Can Devon and

This was a new to me author.
Gabriel is a start to a new spin off series and was great although I wish I had had the time and money to read the parents series first as a few things would probably make more sense.
The heroine cracked me up.
Was an enjoyable read for the most part and the author obviously did her research

Wow. I do not think I’ve read a better first book of the 2nd generation! EVER!
Miss Leah knocked this one outta the park!
Gabriel was holy shiteballs alpha hot and Devon! Man I want to be her best friend just so can listen to her ramble all day.
You will absolutely not be disappointed in the first book of the Wounded Sons
100% 5 star recommendation!!
Dec 06, 2019 rated it it was amazing
The Wounded Sons is a new series with the grown children of The Wounded Souls. It is going to be just as fantastic with Gabrial starting us out.

Gabriel leads the team his father led in the Australian Army. Not just any team but the go-to-guys when no one else can get the job done. Danger doesn't enter in their thoughts they are out to do what is necessary for their country. Now that he has reached his professional goal, he's ready to work on his personal life. He wants what his parents have

Loving the continuation of the Wounded Souls MC! I was so excited to find out that Leah was continuing the series and the Wounded Souls MC characters with the next generation. After reading Shiloh’s story, I couldn’t wait to see how the rest of the next generation ended up and this story was the start of that and didn’t disappoint! We see Gabriel follow in his father’s footsteps with his career, and much like his father as well, when he meets Devon and his world is turned. The character of Devon ...more

I was so excited when told wounded sons was being written and had high expectations of how amazing it was going to be, not only was those expectations met and totally obliterated I honestly am waiting now in anticipation for more. Wounded sons 2.0 was all that and more. The storyline was expertly written and flowed really well and was so easy to follow, catching up with the originals was also all the feels.

Gabriel was definitely his fathers son and he holds all the traits and values his father

Wow, what an amazing story this one was!!! Between the concept and the character build to the depth of the story and the research the author put into it, my mind is blown. Once I started, I could not put it down. The connection between Devon and Gabriel was amazing and I love how the previous series is so intertwined in this one. The best bonus is you do not feel lost if you have not read the whole Wounded Souls series. The author gives you just enough meat on that to make you want to fly back ...more

This is the first book in a new series from this talented author, and to be honest after reading “The Wounded Souls” series, which I adored, I did not know if this spin off series could top that, but my word, she has done it again!! Gabriel is the son of President Vince and his wife Stella, and this series is how these son’s follow in their fathers’ footsteps. Devon has had an horrendous childhood which has shaped her into the person she is today, and she is the perfect match for Gabriel. This ...more

I love series. I love when an author writes about a second generation of a series even more. It's like taking a trip home, and visiting with old friends! When I found out this author was going to be writing about the kids of the Wounded Souls MC, I flipped! I couldn't contain my excitement! And even though there is always a bit of doubt (I mean really, could it get any better than the Wounded Souls?!? ) I knew I'd never be disappointed with anything this author writes.

Have you ever read book 1 of a series and just know you’re gonna love it? Well after reading Gabriel’s story I knew that very thing. Of course I have read the entire 1st generation of the Wounded Souls series (the WoundedSons is of course their kids - but can be read without reading the first series). The author has done an amazing job of bringing the kids into the fold. The book is well written with lots of laughs, suspense, adventure and romance. And I can’t wait for more of the Wounded sons ...more

Gabriel is a chip off the old block for sure, he definitely is Booth’s son but has a wonderful dose of Stella in him of course. I have to say it’s hard not to fall a little in

Gabriel is Booth’s son alright, all alpha and sexy but with the wonderful caring side of his mother Stella shining through from within him, and if you loved Booth well you don’t have a chance of holding on to your heart when it comes to falling in love with Gabriel, especially when you get to witness his extremely caring and protective nature when it comes to his family, friends and Devon.

Devon’s a rather innocent young woman with a fantastic sense of humour, she’s quite a quirky wee thing who

Holy cow! This book packed a punch! I mean we are talking about Gabriel Booth so that is to be expected knowing who his father is.

Gabe is the perfect blend of his parents. His devotion to his team and love for his family shows it. When he meets a little fairy on a sand dune named Devon it’s love at first sight. Those men are never afraid to admit it.

Devon is a quirky yet sad woman that just wants to live a normal life. Her circumstances as a child have made that difficult. Her family has let

Gabriel had an idyllic childhood where he was not only showered with love and affection from his parents but from the rest of the Wounded Souls MC as well. He has followed the family tradition when it comes to his career and now he wants to follow it in his personal life. From his first meeting with Devon he knew that she was the one he had been waiting for.

Devon has a painful past that means that even though she was never alone she was lonely. She led a very sheltered life however those around

Just when I think nothing could top The Wounded Souls Leah Sharelle says “hold my beer” and hits me with The Wounded Sons. This second generation is not playing around. Raised by bad@#$ men and incredible women these boys have grown into men who just may be even better than their fathers. Gabriel puts everyone to shame though. I’m here to tell you he is freaking perfect.
Yes perfect. He falls hard and fast for Devon, possibly even harder and faster than his father or uncles did for their women. I

Gabriel Booth is following in his father‘s footsteps being in the commandos and team leader of team five. On leave he meets Devon and his world is irrevocably changed.

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's Review~~~~~~~~~~

I am in love with Gabriel Booth, he is the perfect alpha male but he is so caring and loving as well. Devon Mercy has had an extremely hard life and when she meets Gabriel she loves how he makes her feel "normal" when her crazy family interferes and tries to control her life and by that it means her relationship with Gabriel, she rebels and is taken in by Shiloh. I loved that all the Wounded Souls were in this story. I have missed them

Gabriel Booth is following in his father‘s footsteps being in the commandos and team leader of team five and meets his one with Devon. This is a beautifully written story. I highly recommend reading this book.

I love romance. I read constantly. Seriously it’s an obsession. I started reading romance at 12 years of age and haven’t stopped since. My mind is always thinking of new story lines, new alpha’s that will capture their woman’s hearts. I’m in love with love.
