Zack King—gorgeous hunk, military hero, her brother’s best friend. But to Blair Masters, he’s also an arrogant jerk, her first lover and an expert heartbreaker. He walked out of her life without a word and that’s where he can stay.
But fate has thrown Zack a second chance with the woman who has filled his dreams for over a decade. This time, he isn’t walking away.
Blair is helping her brother find out who’s blackmailing him and also trying not to fall for her ex lower Zack who’s also on the case.
I loved the opening of this story. It was intriguing, sexy and kept me reading. The characters are all well rounded, nicely portrayed…even the secondary ones. Many stories I’ve read lately don’t have secondary characters, this one did and it enhanced the story and my enjoyment of it.
Another thing I really liked about Shame on Me was this was an erotic romance with an actual plot and not just two main characters having sex every three or four pages. The plot has lots of suspense and I think the author did a first class job of weaving it throughout the romance.
The characters were an enjoyable pair, had natural sounding dialogue and the pace was perfect. You find yourself getting so quickly involved in the story that you’re reading the final sentence before you realize it.
I won’t give anything away but the ending didn’t disappoint me.
If you enjoy an erotic romance with an actual plot and with a touch of intrigue and adventure that won’t take you days to read, I recommend Shame on Me to you.
