I didn’t do it.

I never betrayed my friend.

Last year, I was kidnapped along with presidential candidate’s daughter Lindsay Bosworth, forced to help her assailants, my mother implicated in one of the biggest political scandals in American history.

I’ve been cleared of any wrongdoing, but that doesn’t matter. Once you’re tried by the media, you’re guilty as sin. The truth doesn’t get the public’s attention.

But shame? Shame sells.

And everyone assumes you’re tainted.

Now I have my own personal security team, courtesy of the United States government. Not the one you learned about in civics class, though.

I’m being tracked by the deep state. The shadow government. They’ve assigned Silas Gentian to be with me twenty-four seven. He thinks he knows everything about me – all of it bad — and he does.

On paper.

Like everyone else, he assumes I’m a traitor. A backstabber. A betrayer. Someone who helped a group of violent psychopaths, puppets of powerful men in Washington who made me into a tool.

Yet I see how he looks at me. True desire can’t be faked.

Or hidden.

And that goes both ways.

He assumes I’m trying to fool him.

And he might be right.

But not for the reasons he thinks.

A Shameless Little Con is the first book in the Shameless trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

My Review


Man this book is a page turner.  I could not put it down.  Jane Borokov is a train wreck.  Her life is in the dumps that is for sure.  Accused of a crime she did not commit and tore apart by the social media, Jane is trying to put her life back together.  Everyone is against her.  “Shame, Shame Shame” She is evicted and fired from her job, all because of who she is.  What will she do?  The government now controls her every move and her life is in jeopardy.

I hear read that you should read the Harmless series by Meli Raine before this series, but I  did not.  I hear that Jane is from that series and that this is a continuation from her story.  I did not feel lost at all when reading this book.  You get enough info to keep you informed.  But hey if you feel froggy then read those first.

This book is a thriller of epic proportions,  Jane deals with a lot of crap.  Honestly I don’t know how she is hanging on.  I would have just gave up.  This book has some deep-seated emotions in it and crazy twisted plot lines.  With an oh shit! ending that leaves you hanging and wanting more.   This book flow smooth and at a steady pace that did not leave me bored for one second.

I really enjoyed this thrilling drama driven book.  This first book, in the trilogy, grabs your attention and you can’t help but become invested in the end game.  I have already started on book 2 A Shameless Little Lie.  So get your copy today.
