    I loved the first 3 4th of this book, but the last 1 4th was a hot mess of drama This book wasn t as salacious as the title led me to believe I think the age difference didn t bother me as much as I thought I finished this audiobook in one day It was like watching an episode of reality tv a train wreck that you can t avert your eyes from I found myself shaking my head in disbelief, but I was also enjoying it so much I can see how this is a touchy subject for some people but I liked the romance.Joanne has been a military wife for most of her marriage and her husband Chad s increasing distance emotionally and physically has left her feeling restless and bored When her 16 year old daughter needed tutoring, Joanne hired 17 year old Alex to get her daughter up to speed What began as harmless flirting quickly turned into But there is a lot at stake, Joanne s marriage to Chad, her daughter s crush on Alex, the effects on all of her children, Alex s family, financial stability and possible legal implications I have to say normally I would frown upon this behavior but this situation was truly complicated The characters were all flawed and complex, yet at the root of it all was a need for attention, love and admiration Joanne went so long not coping with her issues that she was in badly need of affection For an overwhelmed wife and mother, nothing could be worse than a husband s indifference The situation was ripe for a cleanup man Alex wasn t a typical 17 year old, he was mature because of his family situation and he seemed to truly care about Joanne It wasn t an ideal situation but it was one that anyone married to an inattentive partner could understand.I enjoyed their tryst but I was surprised that Joanne expected mature behavior from Alex when she clearly didn t exhibit mature behavior a lot I found her behavior as selfish as her daughter but not as bad as Chad s apathy I was anticipating the major conflict, but not the ending of the story I am not quite sure I enjoyed the ending, but there was some realness to the rage, hurt, and conclusion.The writing was very entertaining I ve read other books by this author and this one was my favorite so far The narrator didn t really add to my enjoyment, but she didn t detract from it either She delivered the story but the author s prose and storytelling was the main standout in this book I hope to read like this one from the author in the future.

    Good, Bad Right, wrong Premeditated, or just fate In real life, however, even though experience often demonstrates that it s not that simple, we can t shake off the expectation that the difference between right and wrong is going to be easy to sort out.The reader feels so helpless, crying out don t, don tbut of course she does The agonizing suspense is reminiscent of the film Notes on a Scandal same theme of older married teacher involved with her student or Sin by Josephine Hart.Well done

    For open minded over 18 s only Joanne is a desperate housewife with an absent army husband and though financially secure she is most certainly not happy Feeling overwhelmed and under appreciated a moments loss of concentration during the drive home from a weekend with the in laws changes her life in ways she never imagined Dicey has hit on a very controversial subject here that could possibly offend some readers I on the other hand am not offended But that s easy to say because the age of consent in the UK is sixteen so in my world the issues raised may be immoral but they are not illegal DG did a wonderful job in building Joanne s character, letting us get to know her as a Mother and a wife with high moral standards before we had to watch her very cringe worthy downfall to paedophile It was quite disturbing to see because I had become so attached to her that it felt like I was witnessing a friend choose a path that could not end well but I was unable to prevent her from making the mistake I understand why Dicey did this, and it worked if I hadn t connected with Joanne at the beginning it would have been easy to condemn her for what she was thinking about doing, but once I knew her it wasn t quite so black and white .the waters were murky and I had to question if we have the right to generalise and judge This was an easy one to rate, no ifs and buts it gets 5 Stars and it s worthy of every one of them I couldn t read fast enough to see what happened, its written in a style that suits my reading and the plot was unpredictable from beginning to end Dicey Grenor has a very warped mind, she aims to shock in her work and shameful surprised the hell out of me Oddly the most horrifying bit in the book that I found was not the intimacy between our two MC s, it was a scene that involved Joanne s daughter Shimmer that finally had me dying ten thousand deaths and blushing even though I was alone when I read it and if I m honest had me feeling very uncomfortable I will not explain further no spoilers here Love can be forbidden for many reasons and there will be opposing sides on every issue Shameful is ultimately a romance concentrating on a relationship that is forbidden and I m sure this fact alone will bring with it some negative comments and reviews For me the book shocked me, surprised me, saddened me and made me smile I found it such an emotional journey that I am moved by the book and that is what I look for when I read.Wow

    First of all the idea of a grown woman having an intimate relationship with a 16 year old guy is not really that controversial to me since where I m from the age of consent is 15 This is not a twisted tale of a female predator disguising as a housewife and mother nor is it a tale of a ruthless woman corrupting a man too young to know his own good so if you re in to that kind of kink then this is not the book for you Its the story of a woman who after having had her needs neglected for too long putting her family before herself time and time again finally comes to life again, learning to laugh and love and feel like a woman, even though it happens to be with a sixteen year old young man Having said that, Alex, as the boy is called is quite an unusual young man who because of certain circumstances has had to grow up fast and is very mature for his age, both physically and mentally The tension slowly builds up between the two as Alex spends and time with Joanne and her three children, becoming an almost permanent fixture in the household as he helps out around the house and with the kids, a help much needed by Joanne as her husband is in the military and spends most of his time stationed abroad Understandably, it takes time for Joanne to give in to her emotions and let go but when she finally does, it sizzles The author has really managed to put the sexual tension and desire between the two of the protagonists into words and turns it into something quite beautiful and lustfully erotic at the same time Dicey Grenor doesn t only give life to an endearing love story but also to the awakening of a woman who finally finds the courage to fulfill her passions and dreams As it all comes to a head she doesn t hold back and its impossible to put the book down I truly enjoyed this story and wish there were young men like Alex in the world.

    This was an intense, emotionally draining, hard to put down read, surprisingly I really enjoyed it.

    Disclaimer I Recevied a copy of this book in return for an honest review Where do I start with Shameful I do love taboo books, they give me an extra escape and really get my brain going so I was excited to start this book It was a well written book and did a great job touching on a very Taboo subject without turning it into a dirty book about pedophilia The relationship between Joanne and Alex starts innocently enough and you can see her trying hard to fight the feelings she may or may not be having but after being alone for months you can ALMOST see how it can happen Her husband Chad is an ass and that was hard for me to read He s a military man stationed abroad and as supporter of the military and a friend to many military personnel I know that most soldiers don t act like him when they leave for a tour, but some do.The book was easy to read but I found myself having to continually put it down and walk away which is why I gave it 3.5 stars My intrest was easily held long enough to finish but there were issues between Joanne and her children that were hard to read As a mother who experienced serious Post Partum depression, the way that she acted towards her children and some of the feelings she expressed were hard for me to read and brought up some very bad memories so my views may have been a bit skewed from the start on that issue The only other issue I had was the ending The ending it s self was fulfilling but it happened almost too abruptly One minute you re reading hot and heavy in a very dramatic scene and then Bam it was over I personally didn t like how it ended.but again I m going to chalk it up to my recent battle with PPD I will keep this book on my kindle and will most likely re read it in a year or so when my own personal issues aren t so fresh in my mind I would easily recommend this book to anyone with an Open mind and a taste for books on the Taboo

    This is possibly the hardest book I ve ever put a review up for My conclusion is that Dicey Grenor s writing makes me optimistic about reading her paranormal romance novels.Joanne is a 39 year old mother of three who falls, slowly, for sixteen year old Alex The hardest part about reading this was that I wanted to shake Joanne until she went to therapy for her post partum depression, distorted thinking, and inability to cope with her life I get that there wouldn g be much of a story if Joanne realized that hating her kids, being suicidal, homicidal, narcissistic, etc meant it was time for professional help.I suppose that I m not much of one for non fantasy non science fiction books, so my opinion on this one should be boiled down to well written, interesting, with very sexy moments and a lot of frustrating moments, but I ll be trying out this author s other books because I think I ll like them.

    Shameful, by Dicey Grenor Shameful is Grenor s first novel, and I do have to agree with the author, the behavior of the heroine was indeed, shameful However, this did not take away from the fact that the book was an interesting read It hooked you from the opening paragraph, until the final, unexpected ending This story had everything, love, sex, unfaithfulness, heartbreak, and then self fulfillment The heroine spans the gamut You hate her, you love her, you feel her pain in empathy, and then in the end, you exhale with her The book had me on the edge of my seat I literally could not put it down The ending will blow you away Highly recommend.

    Let me first say, as a mother of a teenage boy, the woman who put her hands on my son would regret it for the rest of her very short life That being said, I loved this book I found myself rushing home from work and immediately picking up where I had left off, neglecting housework, and staying up late because I just couldn t put it down I had to keep turning the pages to see where the author would take the story Throughout the book Joanne kept saying that this can t end well As the reader, you know that she is correctit all has to come to a head, and boy does it
