shameless RB Banner (1)


Title: Shameless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: April 26, 2016



What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.

I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.


When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me. What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.

I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

is an adult contemporary romance/spinoff featuring a character from The
Dearest Series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

Jill’s Review
I have been hearing great things about Lex Martin, but hadn’t had a chance to read her yet. SO when I saw Shameless, I thought: what the hell, I’ll give it a try. OMG have I been missing out! Let’s just say I already rectified that mistake and one-clicking her entire Dearest Series. (By the way, our hero Brady has a part in Finding Dandelion – reason enough to go back and read those books! But no worries, this is a complete standalone.)

Brady is the sexy, badass tattoo artist, Harley riding hero. He lives in Boston where he is helping to support his parents. All of that changes with one phone call. That phone call sends Brady to Texas to handle his brother’s affairs. He arrives to find the beautiful katherine holding down the fort at his brother’s farm. Brady believes he will only be there a short time… that is until he learns of everything his brother left behind.

Shameless was pure and simply an absolutely beautiful story. At times the book broke my heart as I went through the tragedy and the aftermath that left Brady the sole guardian of his beautiful baby niece. But ultimately the story was about family, love, loyalty, trust and finding oneself.

Witnessing the relationship build between Brady and katherine just felt right. I know that almost sounds lame and underwhelming… but that’s not how I mean it. It felt real and natural so that I was easily swept away in what was happening and holding my breath that everything would work out. The way Lex Martin built the story up was just effortless, and I felt that this was something that was really happening. The characters were just irresistible and I couldn’t help but become attached.

I definitely recommend this book. It will bring you through all of your emotions and leave you at the end with a huge smile.

I received a complimentary copy of Shameless in exchange for my honest review.
