Review: SHAYLA'S STORY by Beverly Preston

People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime ~
A Reason…
Questioning her relationship with a man who worships politics more than her, Shayla Clemmins escapes reality for the seductive sunsets of Greece. There she finds exactly what she didn’t know was missing from her life, but fears she’ll lose him to her past.
A Season...
John Mathews works hard and plays even harder. When he finds a new passion in the sensual warmth of Greece, he discovers that one lust-filled weekend of romance is just not enough.
A Lifetime...
With Shayla’s past catching up to her and an anonymous threat to her future, can she and John make a lifetime together?

Review ~ 4 Stars
Let me start by saying that I read Beverly's previous book, 'No More Wasted Time,' and loved it. I was excited when I got the opportunity to read this book and learn more about some of her characters. This story focuses on Shayla, who is a younger woman who had a rough childhood which her Uncle Tommy basically rescued her from. She fills her days acting as her uncles assistant.....did I mention her uncle happens to be a famous movie star and infamous for his womanizing? If Hollywood didn't happen to keep her busy enough, she is also in a long term relationship with Mat, who is not the best guy in my opinion and always puts his family's political career over Shayla.

The story does a complete turn around when her uncle calls her and says he needs her to come to Greece because he is getting married. This is where the book gets interesting because, "Sometimes at the precise moment, Fate intercedes."

Shayla meets John, the son of the woman her uncle is marrying, and immediately is drawn to him as much as she tries to stay away. As they open up and get to know one another, Shayla learns that family and true love aren't just in fairytales and she can have her own happily ever after....if she can just accept it, that is.

I can't wait to see what Beverly Preston has in store for us all next. This was a great read, and anyone who needs their faith restored in that temptress we call Fate should definitely read this book.
