Crying Shame by Rebel Shaw

Title: Crying Shame
Author: Rebel Shaw
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2022



Life just threw me a curveball. I have to find a new place to live, but it must be in-district, because my son has his heart set on riding the bus to his first day of kindergarten.

When my brother’s sexy best friend suggests we move in with him, I have to remind myself the offer was for his spare bedrooms… not his bed.

Graham was my childhood crush and being in proximity with him is bringing back all kinds of feelings I thought were long gone. Looks like this time, he’s experiencing them too.

The problem is, now I have a son to think of. We’ve been through enough, and I can’t risk his heart… or mine.


My gorgeous new roommate is off limits. Not only is she my best friend’s little sister, she’s a single mom looking for help… not a hookup.

From the moment she’s under my roof, sparks fly, and suddenly the girl I’ve known my whole life becomes the woman I want long term.

I know I should stay away. Addyson deserves better than sneaking around, but she’s afraid to give me more. Plus the little boy she’s trying to protect… he’s already stolen my heart.

To let her get away… let them get away, would be a crying shame.

Crying Shame by Rebel Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Is there anything better than a reformed commitment-phobe? If you’re not sure, I guarantee this book will change your mind. Because Graham will leave you wanting more.
He is THE definition of what a good man is. He was a great friend, wanted to help Addy out in her time of need, and what was more important he wanted to talk to her brother the second they realized they have romantic feelings for each other. He was all in with her and her adorable little man and would do just about anything for them.
Addyson has had to protect her heart for a long time. Ever since she became a single mother, she knows she needs to put her needs to the side in order to be a good mom to her son. But Graham is making it impossible to have her wall up. Each day they spend together, the more she feels for him. They really make a great family, because a wise man aka Graham said: “Sometimes families aren’t blood, but they love and protect you just the same!”

This is book 2 for this author due and i’m already a HUGE fan! I can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen next!
