Shame me not by Fiona Cole

I received an ARC for an honest review.

This is perhaps one of the steamiest things that I have ever read…and that’s saying something. I mean, in the beginning of the book, the deed hadn’t even been done yet and my heart was thumping like nobody’s business !! 

But where this author and this book had me, heart and soul was the Gilmore girl debates! I almost lost it at the reference to being team Jess verses team Sean or Logan. (It’s the little things in life:)

Then, my heart was ripped out as trouble came. Everything in this book made me feel so intensely.

My only teeny tiny complaint is that I hated the wasted time when they were not together. I just wanted to scream at them!!! Just a little. But that complaint is just me knit picking. 

I loved this book!!!

I loved the friendship! I loved the message encapsulated perfectly in the title. Shame me not.

Synopsis

 

Shame. Panic. Desire. Dominance. Disgust.

All feelings that I was familiar with from the age of sixteen. That’s when I met Ana. The girl next door who became so much more. Until her, I was alone in the dark desires that I didn’t understand, that I couldn’t reconcile.

My best friend, she accepted me. Helped me see that there was no shame in the things that we both craved. Her submission was a drug, my dominance over her a high that I’d never experienced. When we were together, I was at peace for the first time in my life.

But it was too good to last. Our own guilt over our feelings, of our appetite for pain and pleasure, destroyed us.

I was convinced that all I needed was a chance, just one more chance to overcome my shame, and Ana would be able to trust me again.

If only it were that easy.

Crown of Lies by Pepper Winters

This is my favorite line in the book:
“I dumped the contents onto his ridiculously sexy swept back hair then leaned in until our noses brushed. “Come near me again, and I’ll strike a match to see how well liquor and fire like each other.”

Brilliance 

Sheer

Brilliance 

In some books, not all, there is a level of mystery. How is this going to resolve? What is going to happen? And then, a moment of clarity. You see the perfect conclusion. It’s so beautiful you want to cry. But, you realize , it might not go that way. What if your perfect ending is not what the author had in mind?
Well, this book ended on a cliff hanger!!!! Ugh!!! So I won’t know until June what the ending of this story is!! That was cruel Ms Winters!!!! Very very cruel. 

But, I did love this book!

The Pepper Winters books that I’ve read are usually dark. The content is not my usually fun read. But this author writes so beautifully, that it is palitable. This story starts out rough. Honestly, I was wondering if I had the stomach to read it. But then a hero comes. He saves the CEO damsel, so the intense scenes seem forgivable as no foul is followed through with. But then the book takes you on this wild and lusty ride with and unlikely couple. 

Great read.
