## First book was definitely better. The characters are great but the story gets more and more frustrating. I love Lucia and Noah together, but the way he deflects every time she has questions became annoying. All the lies and secrets. Ugh. Too much. Someone is trying to kill her, so I believe she deserves answers. When the hero finally reveals a biggie, she just accepts it and he doesn't answer why. Again. She was way too forgiving for my taste. Beware that this book ends in another cliffhanger. All 3 books are now available but will cost you 12 bucks total. Page count: 130, 120, 109.

Shameful is the second book in the The Shameless Trilogy and although the first book was fantastic, this one is even better. It basically starts where the first book left off and while some secrets are revealed, it only leads to more questions. Now Lucia has to come to grips with the things that she has learned about Noah, while his only goal in life is to protect her with all that he is. Noah finally tells Lucia some of the truth, hoping that she will see the seriousness in the situation, but sometimes Lucia is hardheaded, and between her and JJ, her best friend, they do things that put them both at risk, things that would cause Noah to absolutely lose it, if he found out. I can't say a lot about this one without giving away things, but I can say that this book will take you on a wild ride and leave you wanting the next book NOW. This one is loaded with suspense, mystery, intrigue, passion, and romance. Warning: you must read Shameless, the first book in the trilogy or you will be totally lost and confused. Also both of these books end with a cliffhanger. Five protective stars for this one and I am waiting patiently for the conclusion of this amazing trilogy!!

Wow! This second installment in this series was just one giant thrill ride with non-stop action and romance. The plot just gets more and more intriguing, the writing is impressive, and the characters are complex and well thought out. Authentic and engaging, these characters just jump right off the page and draw you right into the story. You just can't help but become invested in their lives, and rooting for them becomes second nature. Lots of surprises in this book! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and you just never know what's around the next corner. This is a book full of tortured heroes trying their best to do what's right and be the “good guys” in a world that is more grey than black and white. They would do anything to protect Lucia and each other, freely making whatever sacrifices are necessary in that endeavor. This book touches your heart, while simultaneously making it race like crazy. It's inventive and insightful, impassioned and provocative, exciting and engaging. I would highly recommend this absolutely riveting and compelling book/series, and I can't wait to read the next installment. *I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.

What a ride!! Holy Smokes!!!...Shameful was an even better ride than Shameless!! Wow!! Shameful is definitely a 4.5-star read!! I absolutely love this series. It has just the right about action, sass, sexiness, hilarity, and suspense to keep readers coming back for more. And, if you thought the ending to Shameless was shocking wait until you reach the ending of this one!! I need Unashamed RIGHT NOW!!! What a roller coaster ride Shameful was!! Wow!! Shameful picks up right where Shameless left off. Noah and Lucia are still tip-toeing around each other and their feelings for each other, while at the same time Noah is trying to protect Lucia from an imminent dangerous threat to her life, and Lucia is still trying to just live her life. I absolutely love the dynamics between Lucia and Noah. These two were made for each other...they bring out the best in the other, even if they aren't ready to admit it. A This is not to say that Noah and Lucia's relationship isn't taking another turn. Their relationship definitely is not the same as it was in Shameless...it is way more spicy and sexy now. Oh, and, yeah, these two know how to get themselves into some very funny and interesting situations. Shameful is an extremely well-written story with very complex characters and a mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat...you will never see the twists and turns coming at you. I cannot wait to get to the conclusion of this series....although I am hoping that all of the other guys in Blake Security will get stories of their own. Shameful, like the two books before it, will not leave you disappointed.

I loved Shameful even more than Shameless and now I need book 3 pronto! This story starts off right where Shameless ended with Lucia remembering what happened the night her brother was murdered and to say it puts her into a tailspin would be a understatement. After Lucia memories returns everything just gets so much more complicated for her, she genuinely doesn't know who she trust anymore. Only problem is she has to trust someone cause she's not safe! Noah was really trying in this book to be Lucia needed but, he still couldn't explain his actions to her which left her more confused then ever. I won't reveal any spoilers cause it will truly mess up the book and this is the kind of series that can be ruined with to much info. Shameful answers some questions from book 1 only to leave you with more for book 3. It's filled with suspense, intrigue and a lot of twists and turns that will catch you off guard. This is not a standalone series and needs to be read in order but, it's a great romantic suspense series that keeps you guessing the entire time. I voluntarily reviewed a advanced readers copy of this book

Shameless ends with a huge cliffhanger, leaving you doubting the entire story and the characters you've grown attached to. Following the huge revelation, Noah and Lucia are torn apart, not sure things will ever be the same again. The threat on Lucia's life is more real than ever, and as more facts come to life, things become more confusing than ever. I enjoyed the continuing story, even though it leaves you with an ever bigger cliffhanger than the one before. I couldn't put this one down until I finished, and I'm counting down the days until Unashamed is released!

You have got to be Sh*****g me! That's what I said when I finished Shameful, the 2nd book in the Shameless trilogy. OMG, the ending is a real cliff hanger! This book picks up a few weeks after Shameless ends. Lucia is coming to terms with what she's remembered about her brother's murder and Noah's role in her life. Secrets are slowly coming to the surface and the danger is getting closer. This is a fast read and never lets down on the drama. The secondary characters are involved in the storyline more and the scenes really move. I cannot wait for the final book in this trilogy. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book of the trilogy, and you must read book 1 first. It follows Lucia and Noah through the trials, tribulations, suspense and danger. And you think you know how it’s going to end, but you don’t! We still don’t know why Lucia is being targeted, and although we think we know what happened between Noah and Rafe, I think that’s going to be a red herring, but we’ll see in book 3, roll on 26 June!

Oh man, this author is trying to kill me!! This is book two of the trilogy and it picks up exactly where Shameless left us. Now that Lucia's memories of the night her brother was killed have come back she wants nothing more to do with Noah. Problem is he can't stay away and most importantly she's not safe. Noah will do anything to protect her whether she forgives him or not. The action really picks up in this one and this cliffhanger leave you gasping. Just a note, these are not standalone books. They need to be read in order. I highly recommend you grab your copies and get reading!

OMG! They really did this to me!!! First be warned... This is a cliffhanger & you need to read book 1 first! Just know that if you HATE to wait for the ending, you will be pulling your hair out over this series!!! And be ready for TWISTS that you don't know whether to scream or cry about!!! Noah Blake is the man you want to strangle for being in your business and the one you want to love because he is just hiding the heart that he doesn't realize he has! Noah is good at everything he does but he can always use someone in his corner... He just doesn't know if the person he wants in his corner will ever forgive him and want to be near him again. Lucia DeMarco has loved Noah for as long as she could remember! But that love doesn't excuse the truths that she is now facing. Lucia is working through her reactions to Noah's secrets from Book 1 and he anger is increasing (as well as her lonliness!) Noah has hit a brick wall. Lucia is still his main priority and he has to figure out how to protect her without distancing her further. As he looks for these solutions, he finds more issues that need to be resolved. And it is time to revisit the past and figure out where things went wrong! There were moments in this book that I just wanted to scream at the characters for the decisions they were making. No matter what Lucia saw, she still wanted to keep her independence and couldn't follow the rules for her safety (even after she faced the danger head-on!) He best friend, JJ, definitely would do anything for Lucia, but she also had no regard for Lucia's safety! That was probably because she didnt' know the depth of it, but it also made you wonder where their lives started to mingle... This portion of the story introduces us to new sides of Noah (and Lucia) and you start to love him more... Once he begins to open up, you start to understand him a bit more! I am hooked on Noah Blake... And just a note... While you are falling for Noah, you will also fall for his team!!! Bits of their characters come out, but you can't help but want more!!! Matthias is definitely going to steal hearts... Jonas & Oskar will have no problem winning your love!!! M Malone & Nana Malone have definitely created an awesome series... Hopefully the others will get their time to shine!!! I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

At the end of Shameless, Lucia had just had a hearbreaking memory. The new beginning she and Noah were enjoying came to an abrupt end. The need for protection withstanding. The team was hard pressed to keep her safe. Could they overcome the realization she'd made? Could he tell her the truth, knowing he'd only be adding more pain? The truth. It sure wouldn't set him free. Only one thing could force him to tell it all. It wasn't even for the love he'd had for so many years. While the couple fight their feelings and all the things keeping them apart, the business and her protection team make them short handed. A dangerous situation. Will Noah have to tell her all? How close will the danger get? There is lots of steam in store for these, strain from danger, and surprises. Could the impossible be true? So good. So many revelations. So anxious for the conclusion.

Book 2 wow what a great addition to the series. Full of hot sex, action-packed, suspense and mystery. I love Noah and Lucia together especially when his protectiveness overrules all else. The book has more twist and turns that you don't know who to trust now. Someone is after Lucia trying to kill her but Noah not going to let that happen. When Noah goes head to head with this mystery man in Lucia's apartment, his match in everyway, who can it be? You just to read and see. After this fight he takes her away to his apartment to ensure her safety. But the action follows, mystery gets deeper until I'm on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what's really going on. By the end of the book, I'm smiling. Must read book and series.

This book is action packed from beginning to end! This book has it all: an amazing love story, a protective alpha hero, and a beautiful strong heroine. There is intrigue, danger, and suspense. There are bad guys, good guys, and some that you aren't sure if they are bad or good. I have to say that I was kept guessing right from the first page. And the ending! I'm not fond of cliff hangers, but this one definitely makes me want to come back for more! Noah and Lucia are an amazing couple. As strong as they are individually, they become even more so when they are together. They have the foundation for an amazing relationship that will only grow better as time goes on. I enjoyed seeing how they have handled what was thrown at them. I can't wait to see how they handle what must be coming next! All in all, another fabulous addition to the series! I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Noah carries a dark secret, that secret could destroy everything he cares about and makes him feel unworthy of Lucia. He found love in the least expected place, but when reality crashes into their perfect world, he faces the possibility of loosing her. But even though the thread is very real and an assassin is after her, Noah will be willing to protect her even with his own life, even if he is the last person on the planet that she would like around her. Especially after she finds out Noah’s deepest secret making her whole world crumble for the second time in her life, with no light in sight. What really happened the day that Rafe died is still a mystery for Lucia, and the only one that could help her out is Noah, but he is truly shameful of that day. We get to see that day form Noah’s point of view, filling some of Lucia’s gaps, but there are still many things, many variables to take into account as they both try to understand what really happened and what they are missing. We are able to get to know more of all the characters and many secrets come into the light making this story one filled with great surprises and very exiting twists and turns that make you want more, right away. Malone squared does not disappoint in this very passionate, fun, romantic, full of suspense, secrets, action packed middle story of a couple that there is no SHAME in falling in love with.
