This was a wonderful walk through the sexual liberation of a young woman! The pathway was masterfully crafted and weaved and took me on such an intense journey. I loved every moment of Rylee/Reece's experience. I cannot wait to see where this goes with her, Micah and Asha and all the other lovers in her life! Please please please Shadress, give me more! I cannot wait much long. Excellent Read, one that I highly recommend.

This was my first book from this author, but I will be looking for the next book after this. Although this is not my normal typical read, I really enjoyed the story. It's about three women and how their lives get turned upside down because of one man. When the truth comes out, each woman has to look within themselves and decide what is worth to them more, a man or their dignity. There were some shocking things I was not expecting to see in the story, and I have to say this was a very well written and enjoyable read.

I just finished this book and it really took me to realize that the end of the book that...Rylee is ruthless and only care about getting her fix. The people that she was sexually involved with in this book makes no sense.! But towards the end of the book, you finally see why she has sex the way she does....hurt. Shadress really did something with book!

I thought book 1 gave me a heart attack, but baby book 2 took me out. The author weaved a well written story that is sure to keep your attention throughout the entire book. The characters in this story are very relatable and extremely intriguing. The story line is dope and is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. My favorite character in this story is Constance. She has been through some mess, but she is strong and far from a fool. Now her husband, Laurence worked my nerves and if it were possible I would run his ass over with a truck! PERIODT. He is the WORST! ... Shadress you really did your thing with this story and I am looking forward to the next installment!

FAQs & answers...

1. I'm a new Shadress Denise reader, which book should I start with?

Which book to start with solely depends on what type of book you are interested in reading. If you are looking for a novel; I would suggest starting with Who Do You Love. If you are looking for poetry, I would suggest starting with Late Night Thoughts.

2. How many series have you written and what order should they be read in?

To date, I have written three separate series, Who Do You Love trilogy, The SideChick Chronicles, and the Dark Side of Love. The order you can read both series in are:

  • Who Do You Love Series (Who Do You Love, Who Do You Love Too, Who Do You Love Now?)

  • The Sidechick Chronicles (The Sidechick Chronicles vol.1 - Misplaced Love, The Sidechick Chronicles vol. 2- Mishandled Love)

  • The Dark Side of Love Poetry Series (Love, Heartbreak & Hangovers, Tales of a Recovering Love Addict)

3. How many books are/or will be in each series?

The Who Do You Love trilogy is compiled of 3 books and no more will be added to that series, but there will be a series spinoff in the works. The Sidechick Chronicles will be 4 books once it is complete. The same goes for The Dark Side of Love poetry series.

4. What is your favorite book?

LOL! I get asked this question all the time and my answer is always the same, "whatever book I'm writing at that time." Why?... because each character or poem is an extension of me so choosing between any of them is hard. But I can say I love them equally!

5. Will there ever be a Smitten Kitten 2?

One of these days, but I have no idea when since I'm only 1/3 of the Kitten trio, but keep a look out.

6. Is Rylee ever coming back?

Well... I thought I was done with Rylee and her crew, but it seems she wasn't done with me, so yes, Rylee will be coming back sometime in 2023.

7. Will there ever be a book about the Cross men?

Probably not, but if a great storyline surrounding them comes full circle in my head, then I'll consider it.

8. What's next for the cast of The Sidechick Chronicles?

Some of the characters will make their final appearance in the next installment, and some of them will move on to the next series.
