Summary

Shame. It wounds us. It damages us. Or, for the few poor souls out there like me...it defines us. I'm the son of the devil himself - the most feared mob boss who ever lived. I was cursed from the moment I took my first breath. I hate him...and I never wanted to become him. And I sure as hell never, ever, wanted anything of his.
Until her.
My name is Ricardo DeLuca. There are two things you need to know about me. The first is that I'm in love with the girl who belongs to my father. The second is that it turns out I am my father's son after all.
My name is Lou-Lou, and you probably think I'm a bitch. You would be right - because I am. You think you know all there is to know about me because of the man I belong to. What you don't know is my past, because I'll never tell you. What you don't know is my shame. Because if you did, you'd be worse off than dead. You'd be broken.
There are two sides to every story.... This is ours.

This was Everything plus more.

I loved this book so much. It captured me from the beginning and held onto my attention throughout it. Dorian made me feel like it was real. His accent and all.

A boy who had a rough childhood with a mother who never wanted him, admittin he was a mistake due to a unforseen circumstance. a father who didn't claim him until his early teen years, but wants him to follow in his footsteps as a Mob Boss.

A girl who abused (seems like the biggest understatement ever) by her father. Gets a chance to get away, but runs into nobody else bit the Mob Boss himself. Who saves her? if that's what you call it. Being the only man to care for her she confuses in love with being loved in my opinion. Awesome read.

Whoa.

HELLO Dorian Bane! WHOA!

So I discovered Ashley Jade late last year when I stumbled across her story, "Complicated Hearts". I can't lie how amazing it felt to discover an Indie author who writes light years better than most contracted authors. Anyway - I've been enthralled with her talent since. I decided to read her next popular series, "Blame It On The Shame" since the first book released on Audible and thank god because I really do prefer audio books.

And whoa. Dorian Bane did a phenomenal job. He was sexy, scary, and drove the emotion in the story. And hell... this story. It's brutal. Its gut wrenching. It's all the beauty and gore in the world wrapped into one book. It's a mafia story but that is really in the background for most of the book. It's really about the feelings and shame the characters experience. I'm almost done with book 3 and then am looking forward to reading "Blame It On The Pain". I can't wait for the rest of the books to be on Audible. Definite re-reads.
