Blog Tour: The Man I Need by Shanora Williams

The Man I Need (Ward Duet #2) by Shanora Williams
Release Date: June 13th

There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.
He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.
The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.
Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…
But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

Review by Jen Skewes

This is the conclusion to the Ward Duet.  After being left hanging with that big cliffhanger, I could not wait to start reading The Man I Need because what I needed was to know what would happen next.  I wanted to know how far Kyle would go to keep Gabby. Wanted to know more of their back story and how they got to this pint in their marriage and most of all I wanted to know how it would all end and what role Marcel played in it all. and of course I would rooting for Marcel and Gabby to find their happily ever after with each other.  

 This one starts off with a prologue that will shock you.  When I started reading it, I wondered where is this all going.  And when I found out, OMG, I could not believe it.  We are then Brought right back to where we left off.  Kyle knows about Gabby and Marcel and he will do everything in his power to make sure she stays exactly where he thinks she belongs, with him.  And when I say anything, I mean anything.

Marcel senses that something is off and finds out what happened when he goes to see Gabby.  He is completely shocked by what he sees, but he is also very angry and know that there is no way he can leave her alone with this man.  He vows to protect her and keep her safe, but she's so afraid of what will happen to her if she leaves.   Will Gabby accept Marcel's help or will she stay with the man that she married, the man that she has know idea who he is any more?

I really did enjoy this book, there are parts of it that are intense and gritty and deals with some head topics.  But then there is the moments with Marcel and Gabby that are so sweet, loving and will make your heart happy.  I loved the two of them together and loved how much Marcel wanted to protect her.  She comes with a lot of baggage but he is willing to carry it all and go through it with her.  and that is what I loved about him.

while I did love this book, I think there was also something missing.  Marcel has a secret, that for me didn't seem to make sense and really go anywhere. And as much as I hated Kyle I think a part of me truly wanted to understand him more. Did he ever love Gabby?  I wanted to know his deepest feelings.    There were ups and downs, and some angst and drama.  I loved the moments that Marcel and Gabby spent together.  It ended in the perfect way, and left me with a smile on my face.

When I hear a door slam upstairs, I weakly push up to a stand. I sniffle loudly as I clean up the broken shards from the glass, careful not to cut myself with any of it. I wipe up the water and spaghetti next, leaving the stained red rag in the sink.
Turning toward the double doors, I draw in a shaky breath and push them open. I walk out, crossing the patio to get to the gate that leads to the beach.
I don’t know why, but I feel numb now. My mind is reeling, but my body moves, doing its own thing.
Wrapping my arms around myself as soon as my feet hit the sand, I walk close to the shoreline and finally, my mind syncs with my body.
I break down, knees hitting the gravelly sand as my face lands in my hands.
I’m not sure how long I cry, sob after sob taking over me, but when I stop, the sunset that was just ahead of me is barely visible now.
