Published:  February 10, 2015

Sheltered good girl Victoria Raine has always wanted to be a little bad. Tired of living life safely on the sidelines, she summons the courage to forge a new path for herself and applies to the FBI, looking for adventure and something to fulfill her vague longing for something…more. She gets more than she bargained for with her first undercover assignment—posing as the girlfriend of country music’s bad boy, Drake Maddox, a lone wolf with a reputation for having singularly erotic tastes. Hoping to catch a serial killer that’s targeting women close to Drake, Tori’s job is to convince the public, and the killer, that she and the wickedly handsome superstar are an item.

Although their relationship is a sham, there’s nothing fake about the hidden desires the sexy as sin cowboy awakens in Tori. As the killer draws closer, Tori finds herself falling for the one man she can’t have.

**Hotness Rating 5 out of 5**

My first 5 star read of 2015. This book is amazing!

Shameless is the 3rd and final book of the Black Brothers Trilogy by Brynley Bush. *Cue the crying and feelings of loss* I really thought I was a fan after the first two books. I really, really liked them. Shameless blew them away. Imagine my surprise. I seriously didn’t think the singing cowboy brother would be my favorite. After all he couldn’t stack up to the uber dominant physician brother or the hot-as-hell Navy SEAL brother, right? Wrong! Drake Maddox is every bit as sexy and alpha as his brothers, but he’s so much more.

Drake Maddox is the country music singer that causes women’s panties to melt just by flashing that sexy bad-boy smile their way. However, being a fan of Drake’s is becoming dangerous lately. Several women have disappeared or have been found dead after his concerts. He refuses to risk the life of his fans and will agree to anything to find the killer even if it means working with the FBI.

Victoria Raine has always done what would make her dad proud. But, there just came a time when she had to put herself first and that was when she decided to sign up for the FBI. Single. Best. Decision. Ever. She’s finished her training and excelled. Now, she just has to prove herself to her superiors and she’s just been handed the perfect opportunity. Playing the new girlfriend of country star Drake Maddox is the dream job. For most people it would be. In Victoria’s case it’s just another day at the office. She doesn’t even follow Drake’s career, but a quick Google search gave her more than enough information about his music and his sexual practices.

It doesn’t take long for Victoria to realize that she needs Drake as much as he needs her if she is going to keep her job and prove to herself and her dad that she made the right decision. In a hail Mary attempt she throws herself at Drake’s mercy practically begging him to teach her to be the kind of woman that he usually goes for that way she can be a convincing girlfriend.

Wow, the sparks that fly when this couple gets going are explosive. Drake’s reputation may be a little inflated, but when he decides to live up to said reputation he jumps in with both feet. He’s a natural. His dominance is off-the-charts sexy. Victoria never could have imagined that being a sub could do it for her in such a big way. Or maybe it’s just Drake. Either way her life will never be the same.

This book is smart, sexy, fun, smoking hot and so bittersweet since it’s all over now. I highly recommend this series and can not wait for more hot stories from this amazing author.
