Overview

Haunted by a tragic accident 20 years ago, John Everest knows he doesn't deserve a family of his own, so he spends his days building the most successful fitness franchise in Seattle...and his nights alone. But that all changes when Samantha Rossi storms back into his life.

Happily single, Samantha feels there are only two types of men in this world: those who are good for nothing and those who are good for one thing. Now she needs that one thing desperately, because she wants a baby. John, a man from her past, is the perfect donor. He doesn't want children. He doesn't want a wife. He just wants her body. She can deal with that.

John agrees to Samantha's no-strings-attached proposal, never expecting to fall for the fiery beauty he'd wronged so many years ago. It'll take more than a shameless proposal to overcome their tragic past, but with a little luck and forgiveness, anything is possible.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2 REVIEW:  20 years ago John and Sammy Jo

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2
    REVIEW: 
    20 years ago John and Sammy Jo meet under the worst circumstance but they lived through it.  Now 20 years later John has tracked her down again. But only wanting to see that she is okay quickly changes with John realized that Sammy Jo has grown into a very beautiful women.  Just one date.  That is all he wants, just to make sure she is okay.  
    Samantha is a woman on a mission.  She wants a baby, but so far things have not gone her way.  A chance meet with John Everest at a fundraising event will change Samantha’s plan for the future and who will father her baby. 

    This was a great story!!  Shameless takes you on a wild ride of emotional highs and lows.  There were so many times I wanted to shake then hug the crap out of both John & Sam. Both have so many demons in their past that shape the future of every relationship in the future.  Both know what they want but neither is willing to jump.  With their future slowly slipping out of their fingers John & Sam have two choices let go or hang on tight.

    Disclaimer: 
    I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Aspendawn Books in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

    Shameless. Rebecca J. Clark Review from Jeannie Zelos Book revie

    Shameless. Rebecca J. Clark
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    Wanting a simple easy romance I picked up this one. And got exactly that – a fun, uncomplicated read. Sometimes you want complex, in-depth plots and others just a gentle foray into happy fiction. Well, Shameless delivers that – Samantha wants a baby, but not a husband/father but is having problems finding the right man. John doesn't want either wife or child, but because of his feelings of guilt about Sam's past he agrees to father her child, on condition that’s all. No after contact, no responsibility, no maintenance. That suits Sam fine except...John wants to make a baby the traditional route not the baster one! She agrees and .. the action gets hot and heavy, sensual and steamy, there's some very active and sexy love scenes here.
    I liked Sam, loved the way Rebecca transformed her feelings about John and men in general over the course of the book. John was a great guy too – I understood his feelings of guilt, but it was heartbreaking that he'd let them get so dominating in his life. As well as the Sam/John/baby plot there was more to the book. The clubs for disadvantaged children he and his business partner Alex had set up, brought in some kids who really needed that help. Poor Brian, what a sweet kid and what an awful situation he was in, and I cried at That Part :( Then there's Alex mysterious past girlfriend Lori – they'd parted when they were in their teens and no-one has yet matched up to her. He was someone deserving of a HEA, kind, thoughtful, trying to help where he could but his romance from the past dominated his present.
    It was full of little day to day dramas that make fiction so realistic, and people feel like friends. I cared about them – to the point I was in tears at one part...and so cross at times, when they just didn't seem to see what was so obvious to me. Its a great, fun read, full of drama and emotion but not too deep, so perfect for those days when you want a good book, but not one that requires too much deep thinking, remembering who is who and how they fit the plot. In this book it all falls together naturally and makes for an enjoyable, easy read. Excellent value too at £2.59 for 386 pages.
    Stars: four and a half.
