Goodreads Summary: What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.
Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.
I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.
When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me.
What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.
I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.
* Author’s note: Due to mature situations and sexual content, Shameless is recommended for readers 18+.
When tragedy stuck in Brady’s family, he was left to take care of his family’s funeral and their farm. When he arrives in Texas, he gets more than what he bargained for.
He meets Katherine, who is holding a baby. A baby he thought belonged to her, but only the child turns out to be his niece, whom everyone thought was dead. When he learns that he has inherited the farm and has got full custody of the baby, he thinks he is in over his head. But with the help of Katherine, the neighbors, a crazy raccoon and a bunch of orphaned animals, he some how makes it work.
I really loved this book. It did vaguely remind me of the movie Life as We Know It, but don’t worry, it’s totally different. The characters were lovable and if you like tatted guys, Brady is your man…not to mention he is a tattoo artist. It does alternate POV, which I like most of the time. There is adult content so beaware of that if you are going to read it.
This was my very first Lex Martin book, so I was unaware that this book is actually a spin off from another book hers. Actually it may be a series. Overall, I have to say it is a good read if you are into young adult romance. Check it out!
