Meredith Taylor is in Florida for a fun, friend packed summer vacation at the beach. While on her balcony one evening she overhears a couple being intimate. It’s super hot, and she can’t seem to get the man’s sexy voice out of her head, especially when she realizes she knows who he is.

Cameron Moore has known Meri for years. They’d always been close, and he was practically part of the family. She was his best friend Dane’s little sister. He noticed h

This was a super quick read that somehow I missed with the anthology it was originally published in. Lucky for me, she released it separately!

I am a huge fan of stories that feature a little sister falling for her older brother's best friend. Shameless brings us just that story. A quick family vacation sets the scene for Meredith and Cameron's story. After overhearing Cameron being intimate, Meredith has had enough of waiting. She's finally ready to make her move, even if Cameron needs to be nu

Cherrie Cherrie Cherrie …now that’s how you write a novella. Damn! It started off with some steam, pulled me in with emotion and angst, more than satisfied me with some sinfully delicious sex and then finished me off with a wonderful HEA. I loved it. I originally read Shameless as part of the Some Like It Hot Anthology and it completely blew me away! It had everything I look for in a full length novel, just condensed…and it worked brill

Cherrie Lynn knows how to pack a whole lot of romance and a ton of heat into just a few pages. Shameless was a steamy, quick read about the events that take place after Meredith Taylor overhears her lifelong crush, Cam, doing the deed with a nameless chick on the balcony above hers while they're away on a friendly vacation. The clincher, though, is that Cam is not just the guy Meredith has crushed on for years, but he also happens to be her brother's best friend.

This novella was originally published in the Some Like It Hot anthology a few years ago, and I don't know how I missed it, as I usually devour everything Ms Lynn writes at time of release.

This story starts with a bang and gets hotter and cuter and sweeter with every page.

I am a fan of the "brother's best friend is off limits" story, and Ms Lynn has given us it all in such a short story. Starts with steam, gives us emotions, and sends us on our merr

This is a fairly short read, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in steam and passion.
How everything can change in one weekend! hot, raw and sexy.
Well worth reading .

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Not a bad story. Meredith is on vacation with friends and she hears someone on the balcony above her having sex and it makes her hot. She then realizes it is her brother's best friend, Cameron, who she's had a crush on forever. She realizes that she doesn't want to lose him to someone else so the next day she basically throws herself at him and that is the start of their sexual relationship.

Not a bad story, but I kinda wished that Cam was not as much of a horndog as he was and that Meredith woul
This is a very brief story, but it still has a nice simple story arc.
Merri has had a crush on her older brother's bff since she was 14. Actually, he has had a crush on her too. But they were both too scared to take that step towards each other. The catalyst happens for Merri when she overhears Cam having sex with a hookup from the local bar on the balcony above her. She realizes that if he finds someone else to care for, it will be too late. Over the years she has seen him with others and he ha

"Hell, it seemed the hottest sex she'd ever had was someone else's."

I've been a big fan of Cherrie Lynn for years. So, I grabbed this treasure without even reading the synopsis, greedy for anything she'd written. What can I say, it's short, sweet, and oh-so-sexy.

I just love a friends-to-lovers forbidden romance, don't you? Cameron has had the hots for his best friend's little sis for years, but he just did his best to hide it and work out his lust elsewhere. Never in his worst nightmares did h

I’ve been a lover of Cherrie Lynn’s work for years, so I read Shameless when it was originally published in an anthology but now that it is out in the wild on its own, I felt the need to review it. Here’s the thing, there are incidents in this story that will pi$$ some people off or cause them to make judgments on the hero and heroine, but in reality that’s not anyone’s business but theirs. I liked this story of a woman finally deciding to go after her brother’s best friend after realizing that

I loved this story, I loved the characters, I loved the plot, I loved the romance, I loved everything about this story. When I was reading it I had thought I had read it before, but I hadn't. It was just that the writing was familiar to me, I forgot I had read the Ross Sibling series a long time ago, and I adored them a lot too. I think this authors writing is wonderful.

Rating: 3.5 stars

This reads more like a short story... I really can't even call it a novella, it's just SO short. It really has the potential to be a great book, but since it's SO short it moves really fast. The entire story takes place over the span of about 2-3 days while Meri and Cameron are on vacation with their friends/family. Since it's so short there really isn't any time to give to the side characters, who seem like they'd have been pretty awesome if there was more, you know, time. That

Shameless by Cherrie Lynn a four-star read that will make you blush. This was my first read by this author and it won’t be my last as I loved the talent of the writing, the only reason I didn’t give it five-stars was although the story was good, it lacked something there was a missing piece but overall very sweet and hot. Meredith was a great girl, you could imagine sitting there on a balcony as her heart is racing and then broken, having an older brother wit hot friends I have been in the situa ...more

Is Cam willing to risk his relationship of his lifelong best friend for something he has wanted with Meri for a long, long time? What finally pushed Meri to let Cam know how she really feels and is she willing to take a chance on rejection?

This was originally released as part of an anthology, and is now making it's solo debut.

It was short, sweet, and smoking. Meredith got tired of waiting for her brothers BF to make a move and kissed him. He briefly resisted, and then quickly gave in.

*sigh* I have no idea what I just read and I don't know what to say about it.... no, wait, I do .... What I just read is not the Cherrie Lynn that blew me away with her Ross Siblings series AND her Larson Brothers series. So of course I did a little digging and it didn't help. I was hoping maybe this was a re-issue of a really early in her career publication but from what I can dig, no.

Good short romance

There were no skipping around, a full story about Meri and her childhood secret crush her brother's bff Cam. She suffers from insomnia so one night she on the balcony and then she hears a couple going at it and it's turning her on, until the girl moves out a name that shatters her heart... Cameron. Will she let her broken heart be crushed or will she take matters in her own hands and find a way to heal her broken heart
A simple romantic read. I liked the story, but hate that they got together because of Cameron sleeping with someone else.
Happy Release Day!

I want to make sure I start this review by saying this is all just my personal feelings on this book and you may read this book and walk away with a completely different experience. I went into to this book only knowing a brief description of the book. I had never read anything by Cherrie Lynn prior to this book, so I really did not know what to expect.

A novella right up my alley! I loved it and I loved the characters. It is my first story by this author and I cannot wait to try a full length book by her!

We have the sister falling for her brother’s best friend. We have the said best friend trying to keep both the brother and the sister close, suppressing his desires. Nothing new, but, if done well, it does not bother me at all. It’s a short and beautiful story that made my evening!

I loved how Meri and Cam tried for so long to keep appearances,

It was a quick and easy read and just what I needed this evening. This story follows Meredith who overhears Cam (a tatted gym trainer... mmmmm), her brothers BF having sex with a woman on the balcony above her while they are all away on a vacation in Florida. She’s had a crush on him forever and it upsets her to hear him bang it out with another chick. It upsets her enough to finally act on her crush and that’s how the story begins.

Best friend's little sister alert! Also, Cherrie Lynn's trademark steam levels.

Cute, quick, steamy story about two people who have been having pants feelings about each other but never acting on them until one night, Meri overhears Cam having sex on the hotel balcony above hers. As you do. Instead of breaking her lovelorn heart, the sexy audio turns her on and Meri finally decides to act on her feelings for Cam.

SHAMELESS is a brother's best friend, forbidden romance. It's a short novella that I believe was originally part of an anthology.

Both Cameron and Meredith have had unrequited feelings for each other but never thought to act on those. Until one night, Meri shamelessly overhears a couple having sex. She realizes she wants that with Cameron but does Meri have the courage to go after it?

Shameless is a full story in a small and fulfilling package. With an equal balance between sexiness and plot, there is plenty to pull you into their dynamic—he the brother’s best friend and she the off-limits friend’s little sister—and involve you in the implosion of their feelings and the turning point of their decades-long friendship. It was a wonderful short story that had great sexual appeal and enough depth to the main characters for readers to really feel and grasp their connection. And ...more

Cherrie Lynn has been a CPS caseworker and a juvenile probation officer, but now that she has come to her senses, she writes contemporary and paranormal romance on the steamy side. It's *much* more fun. She's also an unabashed rock music enthusiast, and loves letting her passion for romance and metal collide on the page.
