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.

My Rating: 4 stars
When I saw this book on one of the authors I follow on social media, I had to read. I was enticed by the cover. It spoke something intriguing and I knew I had to read this story. I went in blind. I did not know what the book was about nor which road it will take me. I just had to go along for the ride. What a good decision I made because this book was exactly what I needed. I wanted a book that could challenge me and Shame Me Not was that book. I was blown away. Shame Me Not was such an electrifying read with such beautiful rawness that allured me in. To think this is my first book by Fiona Cole. I am completely floored because her book completely overtook my heart and put a mark on me that I will forever remember.
Shame Me Not is a coming of age story that held so much power and soul. It was a best friends to lovers story that told a story of trust, submission and domination. It was unique. It was honest. It was different from anything I have ever read. What a gorgeous read. What an indulgent and sexy book that brought out the heat. It was a red hot passion filled book but still held a powerful meaning that made me sink in its pages. Well written. Steamy. Addictive. Shame Me Not was a filthy, kinky and explosive book that made tingle, sizzle and swoon so hard. It was emotionally and sexually charged book that brought out drama and love in such a exceptional. It was also a dark sensual book that dripped with so much intensity. Wow, I was high on this book. Fiona Cole is new to me but she wrote a book that gave me a journey of love, pain and friendship. She gave me a second chance romance that both ignited a flame but also stand out on its own.
Shame Me Not was a deeply moving story. It was a story about two beautiful souls each discovering themselves and also their sexuality. It was about two souls full embracing who they are spanning 10 years. Kevin and Ana were such an intriguing couple but had the ability to pull something deep out of me. I loved their journey as a couple together from the time when they were 16 to when they were 26. I experienced their growth and chemistry. I experienced their emotions, desires and struggles. I loved that because it allowed me get into their characters and experience that journey with them. Fiona Cole definitely excelled in that because she gave me something to think and something to relate about.
There were some parts I struggled with and some parts that dragged but Shame Me Not was an awesome book that definitely made me discover a new author I will be stalking.
