If your arrogant jerk, but hot-as-hell boss promises to split a multi-million-dollar commission with you for pretending to be his girlfriend for one weekend, you just do it. You just can’t sleep with him. And you definitely can’t let him get you pregnant.

Oops.

I’ve been floundering at my new high-dollar sales job for months. I’m this close to getting canned. So when Colin F

* New to me author

I loved this story. Katherine brings two people together that distaste each other horribly. When you first meet Elle and Colin you know right away that these two have some major chemistry. So you are thinking oh yea we are going to get this hot and steamy story. Nope. Elle and Colin have some major issues that they need to get over first. Colin has trust issues and takes them out on Elle.

But when Colin needs help he decides to have Elle in on his scheme. This one weekend ends

This is my first book from Evans and it most definitely won’t be my last. Instant attraction quickly sours and we are thrown into an enemies-to-lovers story that I couldn’t put down. I loved the push and pull between these two. It’s clear that they have chemistry but life has shown them that they can only count on themselves. This was a surprisingly emotional story, dealing with addiction and abuse. Evans really gave us some of everything: heartbreak, laughs, tears, excitement, and romance. A fa

First, no spoilers to be found here; the description says it all. Elle and Colin have some major physical attraction as well as each having their own issues but mix these two (and their issues) with humor and snark and you have a great story. I loved Colin from the start. Frankly he was so perfectly imperfect, you just just had to and the growth that he went through just made me love him more. Elle - well - she took longer for me to warm up to. She presented at first to be completely shallow, br ...more

You have a little bit of everything in this book. Instant attraction between Colin and Elle, then whoops caught in a lie. Both have a lot of baggage that gets in the way, making it really hard for them to see beyond what they think they know about each other. But throughout the story, you see that roller coaster of emotions that this author makes you feel while pushing the characters to get past assumptions and actions that get in the way of their happy ever after. I laughed, cried, got angry an ...more

Ok it's really hard to do this review justice without spoilers but I absolutely believe you need to go into this story without anyone spoiling it! I love me a hate to love book and throw in a surprise baby and I'm there! Collin was the most perfect imperfect hero and Elle was definitely his perfect match they just need to kinda get stuck together and forced to grow to find it but the ride you get to go with them is amazing! Lots of drama lots of sparring and sexy sexy times!!!!!

One Shameless Weekend by Katherine L. Evans is a guilty pleasure that you will be glad you indulged in. Drama?  This book is filled with drama, snarky comments and some pretty steamy sex.  I loved the strong, educated heroine and the anti-hero…. well, his outward personality leaves a little to be desired but, you will just have to read it to find out.  This is a stand-alone read in the Shameless Love series and it was superb. 5-stars for One Shameless Weekend by Katherine L.

Elle and Colin meet at a coffee shop as she is starting a new job and are instantly attracted to each other. Unfortunately Colin is her new boss and she told him that she lied during her interview about her work experience. This leads to an unhealthy work environment and her hating them until Colin comes up with a plan for her to quit and make a million dollars. They get drunk and have a couple nights of passion which leads to a whoops and many other bumps on their road to their HEA. Great story ...more

Elle and Colin met each other in a coffee shop and there was an instant attraction. But when she saw him again it was as her boss at her new job. And he was an absolute jerk to her, giving her six months to prove herself but also limiting her in such a way that she could not perform at her sales job even if she wanted to. On the day of her review she expected to be fired he surprised her with an offer she could not refuse - pretend to be his girlfriend for a weekend and walk away with a million ...more

What in the world did I just read?!?! This book has a little bit of everything for all types of readers. It has humor, it has heart, it straight up blew my mind and is definitely a MUST read for all romance readers.

The blurb grabbed my attention, but the duel POV and complex situations gave my work-tired brain the escape that it needed. There are several parts to this book and a lot of situations that are woven throughout, but the author did a great job of combining them all together in a way t

"I kinda want to see him. Not see him, Just see him in person for a minute. But that's all. I not stupid..."

5 Shameless Stars!! What a fast-paced, steamy book. Love every page!

Elle is in desperate need to pay off her student loans and reluctantly takes a sales job. Not ideal, but it will work for now. Colin is her jerk boss, who she met randomly at a coffee shop. And neither can deny the instant attraction they feel, but neither will act on it. Desperate Colin needs Elle's help in

One Shameless Weekend was that type of frustrating story that hurts so good, despite all the whiplash I got from the MCs. Elle meets Colin on the way to her new job, and their meet cute was awesome, as the sparks were already flying. However, Elle has some word vomit about how she got the job, so imagine her shock when Colin is basically her new boss, and boy is he being a HUGE jerk. He spends 6 months making her life a living hell, until he needs a favor from her, and it will set her up for lif ...more

This is my first read from the author and I'm impressed! Definitely going to read more of this author soon.

Colin and Elle have a lot of baggage on their own making it really hard for them to see beyond that and just be together. But throughout the story, you get to see how their feelings really are for each other, but they wouldn't act on it. And I can really feel their emotions and feelings for each other.

I liked Elle's character, she's very mature. Some might say she's stubborn, but I think s

This book was very emotional and I had hard time to read this one. The storyline was excellent but unfortunately characters drove me bunkers. They have a great connection just not at the same time. We not talking about shameless weekend....
It was much more than romance. It was dramatic childhood, finding themselves and what is important in life . It’s about love and being family . Collin and Elle story.
Very closed in, not trusting. It took long time to admit to their feelings.

“One Shameless Weekend is now on my top list of fake relationships. I’m a lover of fake relationships, marriage, engagement and pretty much everything fake so when I read the blurb I knew I wanted to read it. OMG! I’m so in love! Fake engagement and then a pregnancy!!!

Elle and Colin’s story gave me such a good time with their story. When they first met the attraction was instant. Their connection was made at the coffee shop but soon the problem was there and well it turned out that Colin was he

ONE SHAMELESS WEEKEND is so much more than a fake relationship romance. The depth of this story is amazing and the development of Colin and Elle’s relationship went through so many stages - and not stages tied to unnecessary drama.

The author did a wonderful job of revealing Colin’s challenges until they eventually intersected Elle’s life in a big way. There are some tissue worthy heartfelt moments in the story. It resembled more of how real life turns out when you can’t control what hand you ar

This was such a good book to read, Elle meets Colin when they are queuing for coffee, he has to step out to take a call and she buys him coffee, she confesses to him that she embellished her experience when she had her interview for the job she was starting that morning. On arrival at her new office, she meets Colin again and he just happens to be her manager, he’s not amused with her in anyway! This is such a good story, they go through quite a lot before they get their act together! Great stor ...more

Enjoyable book. I am glad I read this book, which is an all-rounder of genres if you like. There is suspense, attraction, romance, steam, confusion, and a Happy ending. Both Elle and Colin are well developed and described characters, even if at times there are reasons to be annoyed with Elle. There is scene-appropriate, good dialogue, well-paced tension points in the storyline. I enjoyed this page-turner of a book that even managed to include some witty banter along with all the other emotive el ...more

This story had its moments. I loved the set up of everything. I really enjoyed how they met and what happened immediately afterward. I was liking the details given from the following 6 months.... then things went down hill. It became very obvious and predictable. The ending had a few interesting parts especially with his brother, but other than that is was a pretty lackluster read. There weren’t any surprise moments... once I figured out where the story was going, it lost its appeal. Hoping that ...more

The characters did frustrate me with the way they handle certain things but over all loved the ending .

This book was very emotional for me. Much more so than I thought it would be. It is a romance but so much more. It is about codependency, emotional childhood scars and finding healing and love among the wreckage. There's humor, hope, drama, despair and a whirlwind of emotions that make you feel like you have not just read but lived this story with the characters. At the heart of it all is love story between Collin and Elle that is anything but typical

One Shameless Weekend is my first introduction to this author and what a great way to start.

Colin and Elle.. crikey what a pair. Elles new job is a nightmare and all because of her boss Colin. Things change quickly though when Colin needs a favour off her. A weekend pretending to be his girlfriend can’t be that hard... can it?

I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
