At thirteen, I snuck a kiss. 
At sixteen, I fell in love.
At eighteen, I despised loving him. 
He lied, cheated and killed. He also protected, provided and gave me solace.

I ran the streets, doing whatever I pleased, until Shame showed up to claim me. For five years, the most notorious street gang in Boston became my family. The day I turned eighteen, I didn’t want to leave. My heart belonged to Shame. I simply needed to convince him I was more than the little girl he rescued.

I promised to love him, but could he ever love me back?

Not all love was easy.
Not all love was meant to be.
And not all love could survive.

From the author of The Irreparable Series comes a story of forbidden romance. With all the angst you expect from KJ Bell, Living With Shame will bring you to your knees and have you begging for a happy ending.

This book killed me! I was gutted, anxious, and loving every freaking page of Loving with Shame. This book surprised me. Yes the Blurb was amazingly good. This is why I was so happy to have the opportunity to read it. K.J. Bell writes like no other I have read before when it came to a Street Gang. I was pleasantly surprised. 

The feels!! It has angst, madness, love, hurt, and just every other feel you can imagine. There were some parts in the book that were hard to get through. But it made it the story line come together. Shame was not what I would have expected. I had a love-hate relationship with the sexy bastard. But in the end I was head over heels for the yummy bearded hottie. He has a lot of baggage. He has to hold his feelings for Breeze because she is forbidden. That part gutted me how he would have to go through life to try to forget her. But then I would hold out for hope since she is the first person to make him feel alive again. 

Breeze is strong willed and learns how to hold her own. She does not have the typical lifestyle. Shame takes her away at the young age of 13. To protect her and make sure she will survive the streets, the war. Shame is her fresh breath of air. That attraction and love at first sight. The sorrow that she goes through and still has the will to survive. I was behind Breeze through it all. This story has a hold of your heart. The end was just WOW! 

The story is a dual POV. Just like the book says, there are two different sides to a story. I loved how Living With Shame was written. You get the thoughts of Breeze and Shame in the same scenarios. Living with Shame is completely and utterly devastating but with a lot of love. If you don’t understand what that means, read the book and you will get it 😉
