Shame Me Not by Fiona Cole

Cover Design: Najla Qambar Designs

Release Date: July 26, 2017



Shame. Panic. Desire. Dominance. Disgust.All feelings that I was familiar with from the age of sixteen. That’s when I met Ana. The girl next door who became so much more. Until her, I was alone in the dark desires that I didn’t understand, that I couldn’t reconcile.My best friend, she accepted me. Helped me see that there was no shame in the things that we both craved. Her submission was a drug, my dominance over her a high that I’d never experienced. When we were together, I was at peace for the first time in my life.

But it was too good to last. Our own guilt over our feelings, of our appetite for pain and pleasure, destroyed us.

I was convinced that all I needed was a chance, just one more chance to overcome my shame, and Ana would be able to trust me again.

If only it were that easy.

Shame Me Not by Fiona Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars An incredible best friends-to-lovers, Shame Me Not encompassed it all. It was so heartfelt and real. It was insanely emotional. The characters just seep into the reader. The story is addictive and while taboo to some, Shame Me Not will speak to others.

The character growth was so well done. Watching Ana and Kevin grow, along with their relationship, it felt like a real peek into someone’s life. The tension, the chemistry, the pushing and the pulling. It was all wrapped up beautifully. The pacing is perfect for the story, slow where it needs to be, and moves quickly where it needs to.

I wish I could give Shame Me Not more than 5 stars. I hated having to put it down to deal with life. At the same time, I was overjoyed to stretch it out, I didn’t want this book to end, I just wanted to stay in the emotion filled journey of self-discovery.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to the reader who is looking for a spicy, angsty tale, that dives into the confusing side of life.
