“It was just Kevin and that was what scared me. There was no just about him.”
Sexual exploration and discovery is not a new trope, far from it, especially when it comes to exploring kink. However, what made this book stand out from the crowd was the age of our hero and heroine and this was something that I simply adored. When you are young, naïve and inexperienced wanting something different can be frightening. It makes you question who you are, if you are “normal” and undoubtedly, what the hell is going on. In Shame Me Not, Fiona Cole takes you on a long and often fraught road with two best friends and next-door neighbours who undoubtedly love each other and have done for a very long time, but each have very distinct, yet complementing needs. This is their voyage of discovery, from young kids, to teens to adults. Normal is different for everybody and this is theirs.
“It was everything I wanted and everything I was scared to have.”
This best friends to lovers story spans ten years, ten years that had me glued to every single page. I adored this story, not only because of the age of the hero and heroine but because it was a complete journey, one that made the character connection that I crave all consuming. I became invested in this couple, and yes, at times, I could have bashed their heads together, but it was this that made their story all the more honest, real and somewhat relatable.
This book is divided into three parts, part one as kids, part two at college and part three as adults. I simply adored part one, this was by far my favourite part and to see how these two came to be best friends and their ensuing friendship had me in tears several times. It is unusual for best friends to be of the opposite sex, but these two were perfect for one and other. They brought out the best in each other, they understood each other, but more importantly, they loved one and other completely. As with any best friends story, there is always that push and pull as to whether to cross that line, that line that could mean having or losing everything. To take that relationship to the next level is always a risk and these two knew that and yet, eventually, even they had to succumb and I loved it.
“I’m a man who knows what you need and would move heaven and earth to give it to you.”
Part two and part three were somewhat hard to read, of course the course of true love never runs smooth and you have to work at it. Part two was especially frustrating, yet understandable and when they hurt, I hurt too. When you connect with two characters as much as I did you become so entrenched in the story and their lives that life just blurs around you, and that is what happened with this book. The tears were plentiful, but the smiles, the laughs and the fit to bursting heart more than made up for the ride.
“But I couldn’t help but think that the more we tugged, the more likely we would snap back together.”
Kevin and Ana were simply adorable together, apart they were little s**ts, but hey, it is this that makes the book interesting. While I wanted to bash their heads together at times, I loved them more. Yes, what they needed was different, but they found it together. That kind of connection does not come easy, it doesn’t come often, so when you find it…you embrace it, you cherish it and most importantly you love it.
This book was so good!! I really enjoyed this story it was so unique! Seeing Ana and Kevin both discover their sexuality together was really refreshing, the fact that they were best friends first before things got heated was awesome.
Ana moves in next door to Kevin with her mom after her parents get divorced. They became fast friends and Kevin protected her.
Kevin has urges to be more forceful and dominant in bed but feels shameful. Not knowing Ana feels the same way, wanting someone to dominate and control her!
Both have these needs but feel like its wrong to feel the way they do.
So I LOVED this book a lot. All up until I was reading the last half of PART 2. Ana was being so difficult and really annoying. By college wouldn't you think that she would have done a little research on sadism and masochism? Yes when your sixteen its confusing and scary but come on, that does not last forever! I kept thinking has she ever heard of a little book called FSOG?
Some of the thing she said were so dumb to me, I'm sorry they were. Made no sense to me how she would have preferred to be with a guy that she didn't really love all because she wanted to be normal, knowing good and well she wouldn't be happy.
But apart from all that it was a great read! It didn't make me hate the whole book, it was just frustrating. I will still pick up a Fiona Cole book to read in the future! The sex was hot and Kevin was just perfect! I loved him.
Great friends to lovers romance with a twist. Dark desires and secrets. This book was hot! Full length book thats split into 3 parts with an interesting story and even better characters.
I enjoyed the character interaction and there was ample development and chance to get to know them. The sexy scenes were hot as hell and left me with a dry mouth and in need of new panties.
The only thing for me that let it down was that I found part 2 seemed to drag on a bit which made it a little tedious, if it had been a bit shorter I doubt I would have felt that way. It didnt take away too much from my enjoyment of the story and characters.
Overall it was an enjoyable read and I will definitely go back and read it again sometime.
