There are so many twists and turns in this novel, you will have to pick your jaw up off the floor many times... I do not know how Rachel was able to write some of the journal entries that she did. To be able to be in that mind set, is amazing. Kudos to you Rachel. I loved how this novel had a bit of a dark side with Taylor, one that I never expected.
Tristan will definitely win your hearts ladies. From not really liking him because of his ill intentions with Lisa, I found myself falling hard for him. Despite the ghosts from Lisa's past, she is a good hearted person. She may not think she deserves happiness because of the thinks that she has done in her past, but she is wrong. Everyday, she pays for her sins. She knows what she did is wrong but there comes a time where she needs to forgive herself. I was happy to see that Lisa finally realized that and welcomed love into her life again. Lisa's ghosts from her past come back to haunt her, literally.
Wes and Gabe play a huge role in this story. Lisa may think that she has a wall of armor around her, but these two men know exactly what she needs. They protect her when she needs protection whether is be physically or emotionally, and they were there to help guide her along this journey.
Rachel, I am sad to see this series come to an end. This series is one that I will definitely re-read time and time again. You created such emotional stories and each novel in this series touched on very personal subjects that have probably affected every reader in some form.
I usually never give star ratings, it is rare for me to do so, however this series deserves 5 whopping stars !!!!!
Lisa is a beautifully broken young woman who has a shameful past. Tristan is her hot college professor - sort of.
Lisa/Mel's past is just that - her past. She was manipulated, lied to, emotionally abused and hurt by one person who she swore she could trust. She overcomes the past as best she can - with the help of her friends, especially Gabe. She's strong and brave but broken. So broken. To keep her past in the past, she's taken on her "new identity" and changed her appearance but as one would guess, changing your hair isn't going to keep the past in the past forever.
Tristan is a gorgeous man (totally swoon worthy) who has questions about what his life really has been about and feels that Lisa is the only person who can lead him to those answers. He's desperate to find those answers and is willing to do almost anything to get them. When he first sees and gets to know Lisa it's with the full intention of using her to get answers. But as he continues to get to know her, he realizes that there's no way he can leave it at that. He's enchanted - as is she.
As Lisa's past becomes part of her present, the two battle for their hearts. Their hearts want to give in to one another without a second glance but both have secrets that threaten everything.
Rachel tells a story in Shame that covers so many problems in the world today. From online bullying to emotional abuse by a loved one. The way she tells Lisa's story is beyond beautiful. She doesn't make excuses. She doesn't make it look like it's all ok. She spells out the ugly and breaks down the beautiful. The beautiful that can come out of the ugly. And as a bonus, we get to see glimpses of Wes, Gabe, Kiersten and Saylor throughout the book. Wes's infallible wisdom and Gabe's humor and one liners make the book complete.
If I could give this more than five stars I would. Rachel, you brought me to so many tears, as you know. But in all honesty, every tear I wiped and Kleenex used was so worth getting to the end. And the ending - folks. Wow. I can't say much more other than it was a story worth reading, worth telling and I pray that it touches your heart the way it touches mine. Thanks, Rachel, for trusting me to give you an honest review.
