The plot was perfectly executed and the author really kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I couldn't put this book down, it was like I was sucked into Bell's world and I never wanted to come up for air. That's how amazing this book is. The entire story wraps around you in a way that leaves you thinking about it for days after you've finished reading it.
The characters were believable in a messy, real-life kind of way. Life can sometimes suck and it was no different for these characters. Breeze didn't grow up in a fairytale. Her world was dark and unforgiving. She knew pain through neglect and disappointment. Shame lived a hard life as well and now he's the leader of the Irish Bastards, a street gang that has more than its fair share of rivals. Both come from worlds that treated them poorly, but they continue to do what they've always done....survive. Breeze is stronger than she looks and Shame has a heart that he refuses to let anyone see.
Their chemistry is instant but the love between them is a slow burn. It fits the book because honestly...it couldn't happen any other way. I loved the dual points of view..with that we are able to see just how affected each character is and how they continually have to fight to stay away from each other. I loved watching Breeze grow into a strong woman and watching Shame finally allow his heart to open up made me fall in love with him hard. Don't get me wrong..he can be an ass, but he's an ass that makes it hard really hard not to love him.
Your heart will break and you'll probably need to stop and catch your breath a few times, but this book is so worth the pain. Just be aware that there is a semi-cliffhanger and the next installment does not have a release date yet.
Shame and Breeze’s story is one that I love to read, passionate, intense, with some angst. Trust me when I say KJ knows how to put these feeling on paper and make her readers feel whatever the characters are going through. I love the fact that KJ was able to take her writing to another level that will allow her readers to see another side of her. Along with that she has given two more characters that will steal your heart and trust me when I say it will very hard for you get it back. I love a well written story with a bad boy and Shame was that guy for me. Breeze was the smart mouthed heroine who will learn to love. I need more of this story pronto and I can’t wait for the follow up to this story.
I absolutely loved this book. It fulfilled my expectations, and then some. After reading the blurb, I knew it was going to rock my world. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop... I couldn’t stop. It's starts off with a bang and sucked me right in. The superb writing and storytelling of this author made me connect easily with the characters and fall in love with them immediately.
Breeze is a beautiful, young girl who looks and acts much older than her 13 years. With no mother around and because her father is an alcoholic, she’s left to fend for herself. Often neglected, she’s able to come and go as she pleases. And she does. And she catches the eye of one sexy, much older Bastard.
Shame is head of the Irish Bastards, instantly attracted to Breeze the second he sees her walk into the clubhouse. Kisses are stolen, sparks fly... and their journey begins. You should probably buckle up, because it's a thrilling one.
As I read this story, I experienced all the feels I love in a good book. Some moments had me angry, some had me smiling, and a lot of them had me wanting to scream out in frustration. The struggles these two went through was enough to drive me mad. Angst, angst, and more angst - LOVED every second of it! I constantly thought about these characters and what was going to happen next if I wasn’t reading.
I am not surprised with how much I loved this, because I am a huge fan of this author. I had a good feeling she was going to knock it out of the park - and she did. If you love forbidden romance, I am confident you will enjoy this. I highly recommend it!
"The disgrace and the loneliness, the feeling no one else could understand was my shame to bear. But not the man … my Shame … he was easy. I was his burden and he was my constant and I had loved him since I was thirteen. Living with Shame had never been easy. It had always hurt. But, of course I would forgive him. I loved him. I would always love him."
