At sixteen, I fell in love.
At eighteen, I despised loving him.
He lied, cheated and killed. He also protected, provided and gave me solace.
I ran the streets, doing whatever I pleased, until Shame showed up to claim me. For five years, the most notorious street gang in Boston became my family. The day I turned eighteen, I didn’t want to leave. My heart belonged to Shame. I simply needed to convince him I was more than the little girl he rescued.
I promised to love him, but could he ever love me back?
Not all love was easy.
Not all love was meant to be.
And not all love could survive.
From the author of The Irreparable Series comes a story of forbidden romance. With all the angst you expect from KJ Bell, Living With Shame will bring you to your knees and have you begging for a happy ending.

This book threw me for a loop! I loved how the author set up the storyline to show the present and the past; I felt as if I were watching it all play out in movie-format! This is the first book I’ve read by KJ Bell and I have to say…she now has a fan for life. I loved everything about this book.
The plot was perfectly executed and the author really kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I couldn’t put this book down, it was like I was sucked into Bell’s world and I never wanted to come up for air. That’s how amazing this book is. The entire story wraps around you in a way that leaves you thinking about it for days after you’ve finished reading it.
The characters were believable in a messy, real-life kind of way. Life can sometimes suck and it was no different for these characters.
“We were perfect when we gave up control and allowed our bodies to do the talking. The rest of the time, though….we were severely flawed.”
“What do you want from me?” he growled, throwing his hands up again.“I want you to at least act like you care about me.”“I want you, Dimples. I want you so fucking bad it hurts, and because you want me too is why you have to go.”
