I did it. I admit it.

I fell in love with Silas. My bodyguard. My protector.

My new informant.

We’re playing a cat-and-mouse game. I’m not sure whether I’m the cat or the mouse, but I can definitely tell I’m in a trap.

A trap with no way out.

I’m not who everyone thought I was. The truth is out there, finally turning the lie about me inside out. I am the shameless little lie. I

What can I say about this book that I didn't already say about book one (A Shameless Little Con)? Not much to be honest. This one was just as fantastic as the first book. The writing remains phenomenal. The pace was perfect. The plot was super engaging. The twists and turns will make your head SPIN. Seriously...I don't know who to trust? Who to believe? Who is lying? Who is doing what and why?'s a mind f-ck for sure. And of course, we are left hanging with yet

I honestly don’t know what I can say about this book other than if you read book one, you know you have no option other than to grab this book immediately. The second installment of this series was even better than the first. A riveting thrill ride full of emotional turmoil and a host of unanswered questions.

The danger continues to build and it’s impossible to know who to trust. My emotions were all over the place, heartache, frustration, confusion, and more. Once again, we are left desperate fo

Yeah, that is all I got for you on that one - I mean really cheese and flipping crackers that was one hell of a ride; I may or may not still be falling down for this. Seriously it was a swift kick to my gut, I am beyond conflicted.

A Shameless Little Lie is a continuation of Jane and Silas’ story and A Shameless Little Con does need to be read first.

What a rollercoaster ride this series is turning into! Picking up where the last book finished everything in Janes life seems to have been a lie...and it’s only going to get worse. This book is jam packed with mystery, betrayal, secrets and lies.

My heart broke for Jane in this instalment. Seriously the poor woman can’t seem to catch a break. With things going from bad to wors

This book is so well written and has so much going on all I can say is READ, it's a great addition to the series! Lots of twists/turns and suspense, when you think you know, you may or may not be right!! Start at the very beginning, with The Harmless series, better understanding of back stories.

A Shameless Little Lie picks up where the first book, A Shameless Little Con ended. This outstanding read with a great storyline, well-developed characters, plot twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat, secrets, lies, betrayal, mystery, angst, and lots of feels, will have you turning the pages in this fantastic story.

A Shameless Little Lie is book two in Meli Raine’s Shameless series and continues the story of Jane Borokov and Silas Gentian.

It’s been two months since I read the first book and I did worry that I would forget some of the back story. Surprisingly, I did manage to recall much of it but I think overall I would have preferred less time between the books.

Jane’s notoriety increases to stratospheric levels but with Silas by her side, there is some comfort to be had from the bleakness that is her lif

OMG! Talk about ending a book on a cliffhanger!! There's no bigger cliffhanger than the one the author pulled here and I just hope that we don't have to wait too long for the next book to come out.

After that massive secret was revealed at the end of the first book, there's now so much more to consider going forward for everyone involved. But Jane doesn't get the time to process the big reveal because she can't even catch her breath when after every blow the next already awaits.

Every reader will run the full gamut of human emotions as you are led into a dangerously complex and beautifully multi-layered romantic suspense like nothing you have ever or will ever read. This is romantic suspense at its utterly finest. This is an epic adventure that even in its second book is still win ...more

Another thrilling book in the series, Meli Raine does not disappoint. Just like the first novel, A Shameless Little Lie holds just as much action and drama, if not more, than the first novel.

The big secret. The one that people and gossip blogs have speculated for years is true. Jane is the Senator’s daughter. Senator Harry Bosworth had an affair with Jane’s mother. One simple blood test was all it took for Jane’s world to come c

At the end of Book #1, we were left with the cliffhanger of discovering Jane's father which we see the results in Book #2 and Lindsay is still left wondering who her father is. Silas and Jane's relationship is starting to improve, that is until more "tips" come in and start pointing her as the person behind Silas's sister Tricia's death. When will the hits for Jane stop coming? Can't the people around her see that she is innocent, just like her mother was? Or are they wanting to make her look as ...more

A Shameless Little Lie is not full of little lies. It has large, blow your mind, hate all character big lies. I finished this and in all honesty, I hated all of them except Jane. I do not know who is telling the truth and who is telling a lie. One asks how is Jane not losing her mind? Jane has turned around and become my favorite character of this entire series. She really has become the pivotal character in both the Harmless and Shameless series.

A Shameless Little Lie is the second of three parts in the ‘Shameless series. It continues with more of Jane and Silas’ story and if you haven’t read A Shameless Little Con yet, then you need to do that first or you’ll be lost. Part two picks up where one left off with Jane reeling from the news she was delivered at the end of that book. I felt really badly for Jane in this book, what with all the mystery surrounding her.

Where to start on this one by Meli Raine. This is the second installation of the Shameless series and what a doozy it was. Yes there is a heck of a cliffhanger but Meli absolutely does not disappoint. The entire book had me riveted and unable to put it down just waiting for the next twist in this crazy, suspenseful story. Silas is truly one of my favorite Meli Raine characters but Jane is slowly becoming a favorite. There is a scene with Jane in the shower where you hear all her inner thoughts, ...more

In this second installement in the trilogy, the search for the truth takes a sinister turn that makes the story very exciting. It was difficult to figure out exactly what was going on. The continuing story arc involving the mastermind behind a series of murders was always in the background, helping to make this a suspenseful and addictive story with many twists and turns and an ending that is rather surprising.

I don't think I have ever read a book as warped as this one. (I mean that in all the good ways. lol ) Poor Jane has already been through so much. Branded a traitor on pretty much every continent. Flooded with e-mails, messages, and videos on how the world wants to decimate her. She is being persecuted on all fronts for things she did not do. Now she finally has 3 people on her side and one hanging in the background at a distance. But when more so-called evidence starts to flood in and she finds ...more

As the Shameless series continues Meli Raine puts forth an amazing continuation of this story.

I literally could not put my kindle down once I started reading this book.
So many plot twists, one minute it's happy then the next it's dodging bullets and trying to figure out who the bad guy is. There's mystery, tears, sadness, romance, betrayal and it would seem, a lot of lies.
Poor Jane seems to always be in the middle of things she has no control over or even knows anything about. This is indeed a

OMG this book will leave you with your mouth hanging open completely speechless. It picks up right were Shameless Little Con leaves off. Jane and Silas begin a relationship but of course there is a huge monkey wrench thrown into it. Senator/Daddy continues to try to control both Lindsey and Jane but both strain against it. Jane gets a big surprise from Alice. Reliable sources continue to give tips/leads that Jane is the mastermind behind it all. Jane gets text from her source. She tells Lindsey. ...more

What a suspenseful story, full of emotion and twists!!

A game of cat and mouse… where your entire identity is not what you thought. Jane has her world turned on end as she continues to be the target of lies and misdirection. Her bodyguard Silas, who started out mistrusting her, has become her very personal protector. Conspiracy, car bombs, shootings and a targeted social media campaign take away all Jane’s freedoms and make her the target of hundreds/thousands in the world of public opinion.

The murderer is playing a suberb head game with the other characters causing them to doubt each other, even their best friends and family as everyone is slowly turning against each other.
