Book Review: Shameless

It’s a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can’t get the man’s sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is…

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend’s little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam’s put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?

My Review

A novella right up my alley! I loved it and I loved the characters. It is my first story by this author and I cannot wait to try a full length book by her!

We have the sister falling for her brother’s best friend. We have the said best friend trying to keep both the brother and the sister close, suppressing his desires. Nothing new, but, if done well, it does not bother me at all. It’s a short and beautiful story that made my evening!

I loved how Meri and Cam tried for so long to keep appearances, but most of all I liked his attitude towards her and her brother. Like they say, bros before… the bros’sisters (or something along the lines). There are moments that would bring a smile to your lips and there are moments that will make you swarm with warmth. Best of all, we have a woman who knows what she wants and decides to act on it. It takes some courage to do it, especially knowing the risks. Having both POVs is really helpful as we are able to understand the struggles each character goes through and the battle that goes deep in their hearts.

Now, there is one reason and one only for which I am not fiving the full 5 stars rating and that is because some scenes felt a little too much and a little out of the character’s personality. For example (sorry for being vague, just trying to avoid spoilers), when Meri and Cam find the time to sit together, she does something that seems too bold, too forward. And there is a scene when Cam is apologizing too much and I will stop here. That’s all. These are things that can be overlooked, I may be too picky because I wanted a full story with these two beautiful people.

All in all, this is a novella that will make your evenings warmer and warmer and will give you sweet and (not so) innocent thoughts. I do hope you’ll give it a try and come back with your impressions.

Happy Reading!

Cherrie lives in East Texas with said husband and their two kids, all of whom are the source of much merriment, mischief and mayhem.
