It’s a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can’t get the man’s sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is…

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend’s little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam’s put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?


“What can I say, it's short, sweet, and oh-so-sexy. I enjoyed every single second of this delicious story. It left me sighing and smiling and ready for more of whatever the author decides to dish out next. The line forms here...” -Rosa S., Goodreads

“It’s a quick steamy read that will definitely set your eReader on fire! But it will also tug at the heartstrings, melt your panties right off, and leave you with a satisfied sigh when the last page is turned.” -Karen R., Goodreads

“Basically everything in this story was panty melting and oh so worth the quick read so if you are looking for a sexy, short and happy story? Look no further!” -Tanya J., NetGalley

“Miss Lynn's books never disappoint and are always so steamy - just the way a good romance should be.” -Lisa C., NetGalley

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 wh ...more

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 vaca ...more

4 “Kid” “…it wasn’t even the same fucking sport.” Kisses

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 l ...more

By Jessica August 24, 2018

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 awa ...more

By Gemma August 29, 2018

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. ...more

Copy received via Netgalley for an honest review

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 swee ...more

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 ...more

"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 f ...more

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 v ...more

By Sara September 01, 2018

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 over ...more
