Every wish will be fulfilled 

Five seductive dates with gorgeous real estate mogul Jaleen Walker—Danni Allison can’t believe she said yes. At least spending time with the sexy playboy might stop her from dwelling on the momentous secret she carries. Revealing her background could cost Danni the beautiful life she’s built, along with a partnership in the Dupree sisters’ lingerie company. Yet with each passionate encounter, Jaleen proves his knack for anticipating her deepest longings. How long before he also discovers the truth she’s been desperately hiding?

From the moment he meets Danni, Jaleen knows that he wants her as more than just a friend. Although their physical connection is electric, emotionally she’s holding something back. And so is he… Will their five incredible nights together be long enough for them to stop keeping secrets…and start losing their hearts to each other forever?

“Being on the receiving end of a man like Jaleen wasn’t just a chapter to add to your memories. It was the entire damn book.”

Well, sign me up right now!! I honestly don’t know where to begin with this review. I absolutely adored every single word written in this book. Some books go beyond words and become experiences and Nights of Fantasy was indeed an experience.

“He opened his eyes and instead of the guarded – yet playful – playboy she usually saw, she recognized the man behind the sarcastic comments and charming demeanor. She saw the troubled man who had more questions right now than he had answers for.”


It was such a relief to read about a man that needed emotional support just as much as a woman. Green had a fresh concept based on five dates and with each date we could see each character’s development, let down walls, and grow closer to each other. Outside of the romance aspect, this book touched on the importance of sisterhood and what it truly means to uplift and support one another.

I did something with Nights of Fantasy I’ve never done while in the middle of reading a book, I made a video of my thoughts. Two words: TANTRIC YOGA!!! After reading and completely loving her prior books, it is safe to say that Sherelle Green has become of my favorite romance writers!!!

Scarred by poverty and life with a crackhead mother, Onika Lewis had a rough start. Still, thanks to her sharp mind, and hard work, she graduated with honors from a prestigious college. But her achievements weren’t enough to earn her the elite status she craved. So she leveraged her gorgeous looks to become a rich man’s trophy…and was eventually dumped her for a younger model. Now Onika is unemployed, broke—and homeless. She’s making a fresh start through a unique women’s shelter, but when she meets Graham, a kind-hearted commuter with whom she has an instant connection, she can’t bring herself to tell him her secret…

Suddenly Onika has someone who cares about who she is beyond her looks. Graham’s unselfish love gives her the kind of hope she’s never had. But when Onika’s wealthy ex wants her back, she plays one deception too many trying to have it all. Now present lies and past secrets are tearing her world apart. And Onika will need to educate herself once more—to learn what really matters, find faith, forgiveness—and build a life she truly deserves.

“She seemed damaged and complicated, yet enlightened. She was insecure and maybe a little arrogant. She was modern and sophisticated, but the southern charm shone through. She was a series of beautiful contradictions.”

Aren’t we all just a bunch of contradictions?? Onika is the type of person that many of us, if we are being honest, would turn our noses up at if we met her in real life. Warren does an extremely excellent job of breaking down each of those contradictions and showing us why we are doing ourselves a disservice by judging folks simply based on face value. Her Secret Life reminds us that even though our current environment and/or situation might be less than ideal that we can rise above it.

“Yes, it does. You are like every other brother out here. Y’all want us to stand up for you, be down for you and have your back, and then when we need you, you’re running after the first biracial, light bright chick you see. What is your little friend? She’s Latina, isn’t she? Anything but black?”

This passage and the entire book is the truth!! Oh my, I can’t even put into words my initial reaction. It hits on so many different levels, issues, and emotions that you can’t help but feel connected to Onika’s story. Warren has written an almost perfect book with the only problem being that I wanted more. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy now. You’ll be happy you did and you’ll thank me later!

A hero’s touch 

Faith Alexander’s guardian angel has a body built for sin. Ever since she woke up in the hospital after a car crash, her rescuer, Brandon Gray, has been by her side—chivalrous, caring and oh-so-fine. Faith came to Los Angeles to find her long-lost father, only to learn that he’s a partner in Brandon’s family business. How can she reveal that her inheritance stands in the way of Brandon’s career dreams?

All Brandon’s focus is on his long-coveted role as CEO—until he stops to help a mysterious beauty. With chemistry this irresistible, he’s ready to share a future with Faith, but he feels beyond betrayed to discover what she’s been hiding. If desire and trust can overcome pride, he’ll realize he’s found the perfect partner in the boardroom and the bedroom…

“When he started dating, his friend had drilled into his and his brother’s heads how they should treat a woman – always open doors, stand when she enters the room and never expect her to pay when you take her out. Brandon had taken those instructions to heart and didn’t see that changing anytime soon.”

BRANDON!!!! He was a supporting character in previous books in the Grays of Los Angeles series, but this was his time to shine and he definitely does!! He isn’t “broken” or hurt from a previous relationship. He is a strong, alpha male that simply believes in being single and is the love ’em and leave ’em type until he meets Faith.

There’s another storyline in this book outside of the romance and it completely tugs at your heartstrings so be prepared for that. Back to the romance, Lister writes a tale that is full of heat, passion, and love. The story is so well-written that you get completely lost in it and you’re at the final page before you’re ready for it to end. Giving My All to You is the perfect reminder that when you least expect it someone will come along and change your opinion about love!
