    Her best yet

    The Year of Living Shamelessly by Susanna Carr is wickedly sexy and funny.

    Good girl Katie Kramer has made the same New Year's resolution regarding Ryder Scott. She vows to have him see her as a woman and to have a wild fling with him. But she has to overcome Ryder seeing her as her brother's little sister. Katie makes a drastic makeover and channels her inner bad girl. Poor Ryder won't know what hit him.

    Ryder Scott always kept an eye on Katie Kramer. He always rode to her rescue numerous times. Her family was the one bright and shinny part of his world growing up. Ryder won't do anything to change their feelings towards him. He wasn't prepared for the new hot and sexy Katie who is willing to travel to the dark side of sex.

    When Katie finds out that Ryder is leaving town in less then a week, she knows she has to give seducing him everything she has and then some. Ryder at first is leery about losing their friendship but once that line is crossed there is no going back. Will Ryder be able to forgive Katie when he finds out he was a New Year's resolution?

    The Year of Living Shamelessly is sensational. The chemistry between Ryder and Kate sizzles on every page. The friendship and family dynamic really plays a huge role in this book and it's well written. Susanna Carr is a must read for me and this book delivers on all points.

    I read this book about 4 years ago and havent stopped thinking about it since. This last week I finally started looking for it again and couldn't even remember the title. I searched so many books online and in stores. I asked the people who i had loaned my copy to years ago and even described some of the plot in forums hoping to get an answer. SOOO happy the title just came to me while eating dinner. Totally gonna buy this book again!

    I enjoyed this book. It was a fast, fun read with likeable characters. Was hoping that Ms Carr would continue with stories featuring Hilary and Melissa, but I can find no mention of them. If you like a book that's slightly naughty,and fun to
    read this is for you.

    Had such good possibilities...

    My Review:
    For the past three years, Katie's New Year's resolution has been to have an affair with the love of her life, Ryder. Ryder is her brother's best friend and she has been in love with him for 11 years, but at this point she would be happy to settle with an affair with the hopes of it becoming something more. This year Katie attacked that resolution with an entire makeover. While that has helped her popularity with other guys, it hasn't really affected Ryder on the surface. Now it is December 24th and Katie has found out that Ryder is moving across the world on the 1st, so she has 8 days to convince him that they are a good combination. What she doesn't realize is that Ryder is moving to escape the temptation of her, because he is just as in love with her as she is with him, but he respects the Kramer family too much to make a move on her.


    There were moments that this book was really good and it did always stay highly entertaining throughout the entire book. I read it in a single sitting, but it was also really frustrating to read. While I liked the characters, there was a lot of the time, I simply could not understand why they were acting the way that they were.


    I liked the premise of this book...on the surface, but it just didn't seem to play out the way that it should. At moments, the characters seemed bi-polar in their back and forth about their relationship and feelings for each other. They are supposedly friends, but they don't know how to read each other at all and the only way for them to get together seems to be through subterfuge. I just couldn't find myself believing the quality of their relationship or their ability to make it last.


    It was an entertaining read, but it had the possibilities of being so much better.

    engaging contemporary erotic romance

    Katie Kramer has loved Ryder Scott since they attended high school together. However, she knows her feelings are unrequited as he thinks of her as his best friend Jake's kid sister. Every year since high school she makes the same New Year's resolution to seduce him, but each year the sweet but naive Katie fails to even try as she cannot compete with the kinky competition that he seems to always have at his beck and call.

    However, this year, the dynamics are changing. Ryder announces he is leaving town. This is probably her last chance. Katie must shed the good girl image and prove she can out kink the king of kink; unaware of why he is leaving town.

    This is an engaging contemporary erotic romance starring two likable lead characters. Kissable Katie is terrific as the good girl who plans each year to tie up Ryder, but only gets rope burns; this is her last chance and she goes for it. Fans will root for the courageous heroine as she takes her last stand hopefully in her mind and libido lying down tied to Riley's bed posts.
