Publisher Description



Life just threw me a curveball. I have to find a new place to live, but it must be in-district, because my son has his heart set on riding the bus to his first day of kindergarten.


When my brother’s sexy best friend suggests we move in with him, I have to remind myself the offer was for his spare bedrooms… not his bed.


Graham was my childhood crush and being in proximity with him is bringing back all kinds of feelings I thought were long gone. Looks like this time, he’s experiencing them too.


The problem is, now I have a son to think of. We’ve been through enough, and I can’t risk his heart… or mine.




My gorgeous new roommate is off limits. Not only is she my best friend’s little sister, she’s a single mom looking for help… not a hookup.


From the moment she’s under my roof, sparks fly, and suddenly the girl I’ve known my whole life becomes the woman I want long term.


I know I should stay away. Addyson deserves better than sneaking around, but she’s afraid to give me more. Plus the little boy she’s trying to protect… he’s already stolen my heart.


To let her get away… let them get away, would be a crying shame.

Single mom finds love

This is a romance between brother's best friend, Graham and his besties younger sister, Addyson who is a single mom to her young five-year-old, Noah.

There is an age gap and a very sexy story about the ultimate bachelor finding his heart. It was an awesome story and I loved absolutely everything about it.

In this story Addyson ends up without a home and her brothers best friend offers her and her son a place to stay. Graham is newly single, his casual girlfriend has just broken up with him because she wanted more, and he is not interested. But as soon as he realizes Addy needs help, he is totally there.

This is a story about finding your one. Addyson and Noah just feel right to Graham, and I loved that part of the story and watching Graham lose his heart to these two.

The brother best friend forbidden relationship really wasn't a huge deal in this story, but it was more about the bachelor finding that it's not always about being single but rather finding your special person.

There is some ex-drama, and I really loved that aspect of the story. It kept my interest throughout the story, and I fell hard for Graham and Addyson and of course, Noah.

I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Great book.

Crying Shame is the second book released by the duo known as Rebel Shaw, and also the second book by said duo that I have fell head over heels for.

Brothers best friend trope? Nailed it. Single Mom trope? Momma Bear rocked the heck out of it, and there’s so much more, from the storyline to the pace. To picture perfect chemistry that was filled with an abundance of patience and compassion, that was billowing off the pages. Amazing internal dialogue the coincides with actions.

Addyson and Graham were made for one another without actually truly realizing it. They both share some of the same qualities that make them truly amazing characters. They are far from selfish and both put others needs above their own. They are the people you would want in your corner, in your life.

Crying Shame brought me out of my book fog. It brought me peace because it’s a no nonsense book with lightness. This is a book, I definitely recommend.
