Dixon James Cartwright – the cowboy on a steel horse.

Trouble with a capital T.

The rigid edge of his jawline to his no holds barred lifestyle DJ is the one person I should stay away from.

Why then when everything crashes around me is he my only saving grace?

***Each book in the Ruthless Rebels MC is a new couple, but are best read in order. This is a biker book so please expect violence, foul language, and sexual situations. Do not buy if any of this offends you.***

Shamed is the first book in a new series of novellas by Authors Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele. This is my first time reading either of these authors, but I look forward to reading some of their books on their own.

Kenderly and Dixon James “DJ”  were high school sweethearts until he chooses the Ruthless Rebels MC over her and breaks her heart. Having lost her father and being the primary care giver for her deeply depressed mother, Kenderly has no life. That is until her job brings danger into her life; which also brings DJ riding back in.

Their story is a second-chance at love. Kendrerly was a strong sassy female character. But to me the star of this book was super sexy alpha-male DJ! I loved his dirty mouth and his strong need to protect Kendrely at all costs!
Honestly its sometimes hard to connect with characters in a novella. The story has to flow really well, otherwise it ends before I get a chance to feel that connection. With Shamed, I was almost there and then it ended. Also, I felt as if Kenderly gave into DJ way too quickly- I mean had it been 6 months to a year they had been apart, then I could understand- but this was 8 LONG hard years for her.

Overall, I think this was a good start to this series. I liked how the authors set up for the next book in the series, Scorned, which will be about Austin “Shamus” Fletcher.

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
