Review: Shameless by Lex Martin




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.

I have read one other book by this author but Shameless was completely different. Shameless was heartbreaking and emotional and angsty. It was hard to put this book down once I got started reading. You couldn’t help but to fall in love with Brady, Katherine, and baby Izzy. The author really sucks you in and makes you not want the book to ever end. Brady has just lost his brother in a freak car accident and learns that he is the sole guardian to his baby niece Isabella. He doesn’t know the first thing about taking care of a baby. Good thing for him he has Katherine, a close friend to his brother. She teaches him everything he needs to know but the chemistry between these two is off the charts. He tries to stay away from her but she slowly worms her way into his heart. They lose themselves in each other in order to get over the heartache and guilt they both feel at losing a loved one. But can they truly have a future when he and Izzy are supposed to be headed back home to Boston. I absolutely loved this book and everything about the characters! I was happy and sad that it had to end. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
