I think it was a OK read and the book ends in 79% of the file.

Nice introduction to this series. There was a good balance between MC action and the second chance romance between DJ and Kenderly.

I'm looking forward to more Ruthless Rebels.

Shamed is a novella, the first book of the Ruthless Rebels MC, by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele.

I love both of these authors. They both have great writing styles with action packed storylines. I crave their new works when available.

Shamed sets the stage for a new promising series. It's backdrop is a small country town in Alabama. The Ruthless Rebels MC runs the town as a 1% club. They are accepted and feared all the same. The series appears to be based on second chance love.

DJ and Kenderly.

I am a huge fan of these authors, so when I saw this was a collaborative effort, I was very excited. Unfortunately, it didn't work out the way I thought it would. I thought this book was WAY to short to get all of the information they packed in to it expressed. There were many editing and timeframe issues. For instance, she went on and on about how she used to have friends then after her dad died, her friends would reach out then eventually stopped because she kept blowing them off. THEN, later ...more
I liked this story and would have given it a better rating except for all of the typos and obvious lack of spelling knowledge. Words like pliers were spelled plyars. There were several instances of that sort and it was enough that it became irritating. I don't understand how that happens with authors that have written this many books, but they obviously need a better proofreader.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

I don't know if I liked it or not.
I enjoyed the MC part of it and I liked Dixon but somehow it fell a bit flat for me. I don't know if it was because it was so short or what, but somehow it didn't work for ME!

I couldn't connect with the female character. She annoyed the crap out of me and I think maybe that's why it just didn't work for me.

I will try the next one though. I Feel that because the story was so short maybe in the next one you will get to kn

I have enjoyed several of Chelsea Camaron’s books and am somewhat familiar with Ryan Michele’s so when offered a chance to read the first book in a new series collaboration I jumped on it.

I knew going in that both these author’s write gritty books. No wimpy weekend bikers here, these guys are the real deal and act accordingly. They are raw, uncouth, and like to get down and dirty. I prepared for some of that going in. What I wasn’t prepared for was Logan, the hero, to act like one huge douche-no

At the same time, the love of her life broke up with her, so now she's alone, working the overnight shift at a gas station, in order to take care of her mother. Eight years later, all of a sudden, the man who broke her completely, rides back into her life, but she's not interested in having the litt ...more

Wow!I loved Kinderley & DJ

A second chance romance biker style.

Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele, brilliant combination for MC reads I already like both these authors and their series's so combined? brilliant.

I really enjoyed Shamed and I'm now looking forward to more of the series.

Great characters and plot told in dual pov's,action,drama, all you could ask for in an MC read is right here in this hot package.

This was adorable but too fast. I wanted more!!

8 years ago DJ shatters Kenderly's heart when he breaks up with her just as her world is falling apart. She is left picking up the pieces to an extremely difficult life. But now she is in danger and DJ finally steps up to protect and claim what it his...her.

I love a good second chance biker romance. Usually my reads are darker but this one was just enough hard and soft.

Shamed is the first book in the Ruthless Rebels MC series and I really liked this novella. Yes I said novella but let me tell you it is filled with action, plenty of hot sex, and the start of a new MC series this this book whore is already loving.

Dixon “DJ” and Kenderly “Kenie” have history, one that broke Kenie’s heart and when she needed Dixon the most he left her behind. She hates him, seeing glimpses of him both

Decent second chance romance, typical mc read, not heavy on mc part but more focused on DJ and Kenderly 's romance and struggles. Short read with Hea, light sexy times for mc read not descriptive scenes. Per ending seems a continued characters series and that's always a bonus.

I'm giving this story a 3.8 it was an interesting MC book mixed with a second chance love story mixed throughout. We learn about how Kenderly has basically given her life to helping her mother day to day and when she's not working. Dixon is part of the MC group and slowly we come to find out what happened with these two and their history shared. We go on a bit of an adventure if you will and the pace picks up. I liked how we're given a glimpse into other books a little bit past the 72% reading m ...more

Holy moly and good help us! What in the world do you do when you see an ARC on your Kindle written by Ryan Michele and Chelsea Camaron – you don’t go to bed .. you don’t quit until you turn the last page.

Dixon James Cartwright – that is the man on the cover who I cannot take my eyes from – I cant even peel them off the cover. Dear Gawd –

Shamed is the first book in a new series of novellas by Authors Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele. This is my first time reading either of these authors, but I look forward to reading some of their books on their own.

Kenderly and Dixon James "DJ" were high school sweethearts until he chooses the Ruthless Rebels MC over her and breaks her heart. Having lost her father and being the primary care giver for her deeply depressed mother, Kenderly has no life. That is until her job brings danger into her

Shamed is the first book in a new MC series by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele. I have read both of these authors before and always love getting a new MC book, so it’s a win win for me!

Kenderly is leading a miserable life. She is struggling to make ends meet to be able to keep her and her mom alive. Her dad has passed away, and her mom is in a deep depression. She never gets out of bed or even cares that Kenderly is trying to keep them afloat. Plus, being dumped by her first love, Dixon James,

Honestly, I'm conflicting about this book. I mean, the story isn't bad. I didn't had a 'WTF I did just read?!' moment. Which I think we all had once or twice after reading some books. Lol. So, this one is written nice. I just couldn’t connect with Kenie through most of the book. Or sympathise with her. She just irritated me. And not the good kind, that still will make you want more. I was ready to stop reading. But I pushed myself to continue, hopping that the connection, that click moment would ...more

Between 2.5 and 3. stars. While I love certain books that both of these authors have put out, this story fell short for me. There were so many things I could point out that struck me as inconsistent. A mother that instantly recovers from years of mental problems was really not believable. The h was to willing to take the blame for everything. She put up a weak initial challenge to the H who popped back on the scene after 7 years absence but usually ended up saying"it's my fault." I didn't like t ...more

Not sure how they pack all that detail into a novella. I love these characters, a sassy leading lady and a take not shit alpha male who just tells her "you're mine" and that's that. Good series!

I just couldn't get into it. I've hit a book slump so I thought maybe it was me. I put it down for a couple days went back to it and still couldn't get into it. I really wanted to but it just wasn't there for me.
New MC club × drama + sex ÷ money, weapons and the wait for the next book. Andrea watch out! You got no idea what you came home to. I know what DJ and Kenie just went through WOW a must read

Shamed (Ruthless Rebels Mc #1)
By Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele

I have read and thoroughly enjoyed several of Chelsea Camaron's books. So I jumped at the chance to read Shamed. I was not disappointed in any way. Ryan Michele and Chelsea Camaron know how to write a book everybody will love! This story is the first book in the new series of the Ruthless Rebels MC. We are in for quite a ride with this group. I am extremely excited to continue to read these books.

In this first book of the series, we follow Kenderly and her trials that she has gone through since the loss of her father one Saturday. We also follow DJ, a member of the Ruthless Rebels MC. How do they know one another? What do we learn about DJ? I felt my heart crack as I read about the past and current things that each of them are going through or have gone through. Finding out how DJ and Shamus got their road names had me chuckling. DJ's mother has been in and out of his life, he's mostly l ...more
