New release...Out Now!! Shameless by: Lex Martin...Giveaway and review!

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.

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

My Review (ARC provided)

4.5 stars

I distinctly remember Brady from Finding Dandelion and remember how delicious he sounded. I'm a sucker for tattoos and the hero that has that bad boy quality but is mostly the exterior, Yum. I have read all of Lex Martin’s books and loved every single one of them.

This book was a little bittersweet in the way Brady and Katherine met. At times I was so very sad but the two of them gave a little light to the subject and what had happened.

After Brady's brother and sister-in-law have a terrible accident, he is left to deal with the aftermath, temporarily moving from his fast paced life in Boston to their farm in Texas to help out. At this farm is where he meets Katherine.

"Big hazel eyes stare back from behind her glasses, which she pushes up her pert little nose. Did I mention she's cute?"

After a few misunderstanding Brady finally realizes Katherine is there to help. She has lived there and helps in every way possible from farming to cooking, advertising and babysitting. There is a mutual attraction there but they are also grieving while trying to help support the other.

"I realize Kat's rested her head on my shoulder. And for a quiet moment, we share the loss. Together."

As they continue to work together and Kat teaches Brady how things are done they slowly become closer and closer until they finally give into their feelings, even if it’s just for a short time.

"Coming here to Mel's farm has always been about figuring out what I want in life. Brady is one of those things, even if it's just short term."

What's so great about this is that Brady didn't realize it but he really needed to figure out what he wanted too. He thought he had it all figured out until he met Katherine.

I love Brady and Kat’s relationship and how Katherine was able to really come out of herself and be a spunky person, they both brought out the best in each other and their chemistry was HOT HOT HOT. They were both such likable characters too. I love how Brady was portrayed (as I said earlier), not too alpha, not to cocky but just the right about to make the perfect guy.

I recommend this book as well as all of Lex's others.
