~New Adult Contemporary Romance -- recommended for mature readers~
Girls like me don’t get happy endings.
I know what I am. At worst a cliché, at best a cautionary tale. I put an international border between me and my past, only to wind up working in a low-end titty bar. Even my excuse is as lame as it gets: I’m paying for college, getting my art degree from Montreal’s most prestigious school. Although some days it becomes confusing: am I just a student who moonlights as a stripper, or a stripper who masquerades as a student?
But the inevitable happens and my two lives collide. And now there’s one other person who knows both the quiet, antisocial Hannah and the sensual, shameless Alicia. One person who keeps my secret.
He’s beautiful, he’s sophisticated. He comes from the other side of life, the one where I’m not wanted or accepted. But he calls me la petite Américaine, and his hot, hot hands on my skin promise me things I long ago gave up on.
The problem? He teaches my Classic Photography class.
This is a standalone novel, no series, no cliffhanger
Review by Gia:
Shameless is a great read. I loved Hannah. She's a great character. She is an America that leaves behind her past and goes to Montreal for college. While there is gets a job as a stripper to help pay for college. Hannah is different then a lot of strippers. She may be a stripper but she still has values, she doesn't allow the clients to touch her and she does have a drug or alcohol problem. She seems a little lost and life but does what she has to to get by.
She meets Emmanuel when he comes into the bar. He is reluctant to get a lap dance but his friend paid for it. There is a little bit of attractive between the too. Emmanuel is is older and after the night she gives him a lap dance, she finds out her is her Photography professor. Of course that makes for a great story.
Emmanuel and Hannah start a relationship even though it could cause them trouble. We know Hannah has some things in her past but I was surprised Emmanuel has some things in his pass too. You'll have to read it to find out what happen in their relationship.
I was surprised by a few twists. I one point I thought that Hannah may have a stalker. I was surprised on what direction that went in. Overall, Shameless is a good read and you should definitely check it out.
