    ...comes out on top.

    Opposites attract has been done before, but Ms. Maxwell takes the familiar scenario is a direction that can burn down the house. Chance is a man that lives to be naughty. Jane is a lady that lives to be nice. When the naughty boy meets the nice lady, the situation becomes combustible. Shameless blends humor with sex appeal and comes out on top.

    Not for the faint of heart!

    Jane Wendall is having issues with the plumbing in her dilapidated building. Jane has been writing her masters thesis on social work for two years, which will finally permit her to get a good job. She has not been into fun recently; she just has no time, with school and work. But she finds time for internet porn, although no one knows. One evening, her friend Addison phones, and tells her she has the number of a great handyman; Addison paid for him; he’ll be there in an hour: seven pm on a Friday night. Said handyman is Chance Danvers; he works for a construction company, but he also strips for fun. He started in college, and along with some friends, simply continued. He likes his sideline, he enjoys seducing women with his dancing, besides the perks are fab: he can bed his clients when he wants to. That Friday, he’s not in the mood to dance, but he gathers he was hired by Addison for a fantasy, Jane thinks he’s a handyman. She’s not at all what he expected: she’s in yoga pants, slippers, and a hoodie, but she’s an attractive nerd nevertheless. Jane keeps studying, while he starts to dance; she is understandably flustered, and tells him to fix her sink. She might watch porn, but she’s not into strippers, although this one is pretty cute! SHAMELESS was a very pleasant surprise to a point. The writing is really spectacular, flowing and quite witty, but a word of caution though: Chance likes rough sex, which for Jane is a fantasy, and although everything is unequivocally consensual, some readers might object to the politically incorrect language and the nature of the sexual acts. I did not quite like the mild “light choking”; it’s a personal thing, but still. There is a lot of said rough sex, and just as I was starting to get a bit bored by it, more story took place, so that was good. The beginning was obviously predictable, but it was very well done, original without the usual annoying parts of the misunderstanding, and very amusing. Told in alternate POVs, I loved the two very different voices. The descriptions are very vivid: I had a crystal clear idea of what Chance looked like, and he was definitely scrumptious! He’s cocky, he knows what he’s got, he initially sounded really nice until the ending, which I did not like as much. While I understand that both Jane and Chance enjoy their rough sex and that it is what turns them on, I wasn’t too fond of how a conflict was resolved, and I felt that things were a tad too quickly settled. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but I thought it was much better than I anticipated. SHAMELESS is a very sexy, quick read, and there is more to come – pun not really intended – in this series with Chance’s stripping co-workers. I hope that Ms. Maxwell can maintain her level of originality with the next instalments, because I’m not quite sure how different the trope can be varied, but we shall see. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Hot Start to a New Series

    Seriously hot start to a new series. This is not your average romance, for one, the lead male character is a stripper. Not what you'd expect for a book about a couple coming together but this time it works. He's a narcissistic but not so much that he's not open to pursue a romance even though he doesn't realize that's what it is in the beginning. She's a good girl on the outside but a very naughty girl at heart. I liked these characters, not sure why but they just really came together and made this an exciting read.

    Super sexy and sweet too!

    I really enjoyed this novella! Part of the new Scorched imprint by Entangled Publishing, it definitely pushes the boundaries and it's no wonder they created a new line for it, and the others that will follow. Chance is into rough encounters, and Jane is reluctant to tell anyone about her interest in humiliation kink. Together they've found quite the playmate in each other, and there are several fully consensual and steamy scenes between them where Jane is free to explore her desires and Chance is quite willing to lead the way. Chance works two jobs. He's a star attraction and co-owner of Playboys 4 Hire, a male stripping company and takes pride in his dancing and his guys. But he also runs a successful construction company. He doesn't have to strip for a living anymore, but he enjoys it and the attention he gets from it. Up until now, his only other serious relationship was with a woman who gave him an ultimatum - her or the stripping business, and he didn't choose her. He's always maintained that no woman would be able to make him give up what he enjoys. This, then, is the main conflict as Jane and Chance start to really like each other and want to spend time together, outside of the fabulous sex they have. While Jane has no problem with Chance's job when they are just starting out, the more she falls for him, the less comfortable she is with the idea of other women being able to touch him at will. It's not that she worries that he'll be unfaithful to her - he's made it clear that if he's sleeping with her, it's exclusive. It's more that meeting while he was on a gig makes her wonder if he might meet someone prettier and sexier than her. Jane considers herself to be a pretty 'plain Jane' and wonders whether she'll have the goods to keep Chance interested for the long term. Chance has to make some decisions about Jane, and what he really wants for his future. Jane is working part time at a restaurant pursuing her master's degree in social work, and her thesis involves the objectification of women. She'd never considered what it would be like to be in a man's shoes in this regard, but her new relationship gives her access to some interesting research material - that of the male strippers. Most of them are young, putting themselves through college, and their families don't know what they are doing on the side. It's a reflection of the reality that a lot of women escorts and strippers face, and I thought it was interesting to touch on that perspective in this story. Along with all the super sexy scenes, we get some great camaraderie between Chance and his team, including his best friends and partners Roman and Austin. And surprisingly, we get a really sweet romance. When Chance isn't sexing up Jane, he's treating her like someone he really cares for, and it's this obvious affection for her that scares him - he's never felt for a woman the way he feels for Jane. I really enjoyed all the aspects of this story, from the hot hot scenes to the tender ones, and combined with lots of laughs, this one is a winner. 4.5 stars and I'm eagerly anticipating the next one in the series!
