Hopeless Book Lover



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.


Lex Martin is taking it from Boston to Texas and I am (surprisingly) very much okay with that. So for those of you who don’t know, I fell hard for Lex’s Dearest series because:

1) I read the first book right before coming to Boston University and it is based in my school/ city. (Still waiting my life to look like Clementine’s from Dearest Clementine.) 

2) The characters are hilarious, sexy, witty, and entertaining.

3) Lex knows how to write some incredible swoon-worthy romance.

Shameless  is a Dearest series spinoff novel that follows rugged, sexy, smart, and sweet Brady (Can you tell I’m a fan of his yet?). Readers are first introduced to Brady in Finding Dandelion, he’s the best friend that doesn’t get the girl in that book, but this is his time!!!!

Brady’s life leads him to Texas where a new life (and baby) is thrown his way. Thankfully, he has Katherine there to help him out. Katherine and Brady were PERFECT together. I shipped their relationship so hard even when they weren’t together. Their feelings for each other developed over a short amount of time but they were literally living together,  raising a baby together!! How can feelings not develop quickly in a situation like that? Especially when they have hella chemistry.

Shameless had a healthy dose of romance and steamy scenes, and it also had scenes that made my heart hurt because Brady and Katherine are still grieving their loved ones while trying to not fall for each other (unsuccessfully I might add). 😉

So if you’re a fan of Lex Martin, you should definitely not miss out on this novel, and if you’ve never read anything by Lex, please pick up all her books ASAP. She is one of my favorite New Adult authors and her debut into the Adult romance world with Shameless was spectacular!!
