Release Day: Shameless by Lex Martin

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
I really loved reading Brady and Katherine's story! 
Brady's younger brother Cal and his wife die in a freak accident leaving Brady custody of his one year old niece. Brady lives in Boston and has to travel to Texas to handle his brothers farm and funeral, oh and his niece that he's never met, the one he thought died in the accident with her parents. Luckily she had been with Katherine.

Katherine was best friends with Mel, Brady's sister in law, and has been taking care of the baby and the farm since the accident. I adored Katherine. She was such a great female lead. She was caring, compassionate and smart. 

Brady was a great guy and after "meeting" him in Finding Dandelion I couldn't wait for his story. Tall, handsome and tattooed? Sign me up! Not to mention he wasn't douchy at all! I loved that he wasn't your typical asshole, bossy make lead! He was a genuinely good guy. My heart melted anytime he interacted with his niece!

One thing I love the most about Lex Martin's writing is she makes her characters work for it! There is the perfect amount of build up and chemistry between her characters. She knows how to build up anticipation and to make it believable! 

5 stars!!!
