In the name of freedom, Sean Dempsey had paid a price for serving his county.  In his tour of duty in Iraq he received scorched retinas and artificial knees. That ill-fated day refuses to leave his memory.  To keep his inner demons manageable he visits a local clinic where he receives medication.  It is during one of these visits he meets Gabriel Herne. 


Gabriel is a double amputee; he doesn’t allow his disability to get him down.  He makes his living as a phone psychic.  When Sean introduces himself and offers to go get a cup of coffee with him, he readily agrees.  The attraction he feels for Sean is hard to mask.  He is overjoyed to find that Sean is experiencing the same feelings.  

Gabriel invites Sean to his place.  There Sean discovers that Gabriel practices the Pagan religion.  Will this revelation be the wedge that will keep their new found love apart?  Or will it serve as a strong foundation to help build a solid relationship?

SHELL SHOCKED is one of the most unique stories this reviewer has ever read.  It provides an original plot with elements that you usually don’t see captured in one book.  I was overjoyed at how each one enhanced the story.  Sean and Gabriel are two wounded souls; together they are able to find some relief from the horrors the world has sent their way.  Angelia Sparrow and Naomi Brooks you have written a book that they should be highly proud of.  This enchanting tale provides readers a refreshing look at how romance can happen when you least expect it.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who is in search of a romance that offers an out of the box reading experience.
