This is book two in the series and the final book. I certainly recommend you read It's a Crime before reading this book as its a continuation of the story.

Cole and Graces story continues. Will these two ever get a break?

I don't want to say much about the storyline in case you haven't read both books.

If your looking for an action packed story full of romance, sexy scenes and suspense then is the the book for you.

I absolutely loved this book. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. I loved it.

HASH(0x8fcbe1ec) out of 5 stars Very suspenseful and erotic Must Read 12 Nov. 2013
By Reading Renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you have not read books one, stop and do so now. This one is a continuation so book one doesn't leave with a cliff hanger. Trying to move on Grace and Cole deal with the aftermath. The author give you the conflicts. They get hate mail from people and on the other end of the spectrum they get sympathy. A very interesting side of the couple is brought to light. They are very much in love and lust. There are a lot of pretty graphic scenes so I loved them. I enjoyed the sub character Michelle as Grace's best friend She overcomes a life threatening ordeal faster and becomes stronger. Between her and Grace I was loving their resiliency.

"When will this magic carpet ride stop? Where will we get off? I had a nagging worry this relationship had become too intense. It consumed me, consumed every waking moment"

Cole wants to get custody of his child Kyle and while that was not in Grace's plans, I think she started thinking about a picket fence suburban life. When things are sexy and intimate for them it doesn't really last long.

Grace is in the middle of another ordeal. Then she has no choice but to begin an inner conflict about Cole. She is thinking maybe he isn't innocent he has a temper when it comes to her. Did he take it too far? There is the ex Lauren Buckley, Mother of his child to consider. It is a page turner for sure. Michelle is attracted to Dean a detective who helped Grace. They are adorable together.

"Each day and night I spent with Cole I fell deeper and deeper in love with him."

So along with trying to repair the relations with her Mom, Grace deals with her stepfather Franklin. I get the feeling she was indifferent since she lost her real father. Franklin however a judge, is the go to person when she is in need. It brings a new dynamic that Grace is not used to. She depends on herself and now Cole, so now she needs to depend on Franklin when Cole is in a bad situation.

There are a few parts that are laugh out loud funny. Michelle and Grace are acting like an episode of I Love Lucy when they venture to Brooklyn to try to solve a mystery. That part was hysterical to me.

It is a very erotic, fast paced suspense. I know my suspense and mystery lovers will agree it is a must read!

HASH(0x8fcbe240) out of 5 stars what an amazing sequel! 23 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cole Greyson! Wow! I loved this sequel. Ms. Hansen opened it up with a bang (total pun intended) and it was hot! In this second installment, Grace and Cole face new challenges, ones that are just as twisted and suspenseful as the others in book one.

I remember my heart sinking when I read the poem that was attached to the package she got delivered to her with a grisly item in it. I love how Cole and Grace never give up on one another because they deserve their fairy tale after everything that has been thrown their way, and it's tons of crazy turns and many insane people!

Steamy sex, undeniable chemistry, love, suspense, thrill, and angst is the perfect combination for a read that will leave you turning the pages until the early hours of the morning. Did I mention a whirlwind of emotions? Yes, there is... you will laugh, want to cry, and your heart will pace faster while reading the hot scenes as well as the ones that will make your belly turn in suspense. A fabulous combination for a great read!

I love how Ms. Hansen writes. It's so real and she tells this story in such a way where I feel like I am there, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. She writes in such a way where it's easy for you to get lost in the story. I loved this book just as much as the first and I look forward to more of her work in the future. Kudos! A definite 5 star must read!

HASH(0x8fcbe51c) out of 5 stars Mystery, suspense, hot loving....what's not to like! 14 Nov. 2013
By Dee England - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoy CE Hansen's debut story, so was really looking forward to reading this one. I enjoyed it so much I read it twice, and that is saying something as I don't tend to do re-reads.

The combination of mystery, suspense and erotica was perfect for me! And let me tell you, CE sure knows how to write some steamy scenes, I had to fan myself to cool off on more than one occasion! I loved the way Cindy has of bringing the plot and characters to life.

To fully appreciate this story I strongly suggest you read It's A Crime first.

((Read in October thanks to the author gifting me a copy prior to the release date!))

HASH(0x8fcbea44) out of 5 stars 4 Stars --> Great multi-layered suspense filled love story 12 July 2015
By Cyndi Becker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
C.E. Hansen’s follow-up to It's A Crime (Blood and Tears, #1), It's A Shame (Blood and Tears, #2), is just as sexy and suspenseful as it’s predecessor. It’s A Shame picks up shortly after the craziness that became Grace Preston's life left her both physically and emotionally beat . If I loved the mystery that drove the plot in It’s A Crime, I loved the passion and connection that Grace and Cole developed even more. I looked forward to seeing this deepen and heartily believed that the adversity they faced would only bring them closer. But there is no ONLY about it. It’s A Shame delivers a look at the complexity of Cole Grayson and Grace Preston’s scorching love affair after they are dragged down a dark path and are well into working on healing each other and themselves.

The story continues with this Cole and Grace facing the anxiety of trying to combine their lives ( easy enough, right?) and unfortunately, the remnants of the trauma they experienced at the hands of Grace’s brother. Grace is in a recovery stage, trying to move past being terrorized. She’s left off balance and at times, it’s hard to champion her character. I realised that as I was finding myself less enchanted with Grace, due to her many mood swings, that it was exactly how I should be feeling. The author captures the dreaded sense of panic and anxiety to perfection. She’s frail and yet so hyped up with what she thinks and feels. She’s well into that feeling of insanity that stress brings about. She becomes her own enemy and all too quickly she’s pushing Cole past his limit and alienating herself.

What of Cole? We know he is not a man to be trifled with. We get a bit more of his past and not surprisingly it comes back to haunt him. With Grace’s anxiety leaving her not so clear headed, Cole’s past is well on its way to driving a wedge between them. I found myself continually thinking “well I didn’t see that coming”! But, I never once doubted Cole... okay, well maybe sort of. There were certainly times it was hard to see what was really going on. Yes, that sweet feeling of angst was a huge part of this read

There is a secondary and follow-up mystery aspect in the story with a seemingly unconnected sinister character. There is no way to escape the uneasy feeling that these scenes elicit. I love how the author pulled this into the storyline, because honestly, did we think it would just all be settled?

Again, C.E. Hansen delivered a story that kept me hooked and reading well into the night. The chemistry between Cole is Grace remains crazy hot and together they are crazy good. I highly recommend this series. It’s A Shame is a solid four star read and a MUST if you read It’s A Crime.

HASH(0x8fcbe300) out of 5 stars Loved it! 4.5 Stars 11 Feb. 2014
By Ashley Lenderman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is the continuation of It's A Crime. You must read it first!

With that said, I LOVED this sequel! It had the suspense, angst, mystery and let's not forget romance all over again!

Cole and Grace are moving on from their horrific past and looking forward to their future.
They are living together and are having a place built for them in New York. During this time Grace's feelings for Cole is so intense that it consumes her. She has never been so in love with someone and know so little about him and his past.

"When will this magic carpet ride stop? Where will we get off?"

Graces thoughts are pushed aside as she starts receiving mysterious packages left outside of their apartment.

"My gut finds you breathing
To my dismay
This is a warning
Stay out of the way
The poor girl is suffering
That much is true
Her finger is pointing
Directly at you
When I come across you
Some darkening night
My blade you will feel
As you see your last light
Look around every corner
Look under your bed
I know where you sleep
I'm there in your head
How many flowers
Does a doesn't make
And how much more pain
Do you think she can take?"

Just when Cole and Grace thought it was all over. There was someone still out to get them!
They are faced with new challenges. Cole has a blast from the past with a very unexpected surprise. I must say I didn't see that coming!:)
We get to know all about Coles past in this book.

Cole and Graces relationship and trust is tested. They both go through some crazy stuff and at one time I was so worried that Cole and Grace might call it quits. However, they never gave up on one another! Instead they faced it head on and stood by each other!
You could feel how much these two were so in love and perfect for each other!

"This is the diamond that sparkled and shined through all the darkness and ugliness. This...she is my diamond"

By the end of this book my heart was happy for Cole and Grace.
They are living their happily ever after! They truly deserve it!
I was also happy for Graces best friend Michelle to find love.
Her and Dean were funny! Maybe a book for them!!;)

Overall I really loved this series! It kept me hooked beginning to end! I couldn't get enough of Cole Grayson. He had me swooning over him like a lovesick puppy! LOL

"Grace, 'May you never steal, lie or cheat. But if you have to steal, then steal away my sorrows. If you have to lie, then lie with me all the nights of our life. If you have to cheat, then cheat death because I don't want to live a single day without you,"

I highly recommend this series! Especially if you like suspense with your romance!
