About the Book:
I like my sex dirty. It takes a hell of a lot to tilt my moral compass, and I always follow when it's pointing at something I want. That goes double when it points straight at the one girl in all of Chicago who's not dying for a piece of me.
She's all I can think about, and that's a problem, because she wants nothing to do with me. But I've seen her deepest secrets, her darkest fantasies, and they match mine to a fucking T.
I want her. Bad.
Now I need to show her how good it can feel...to be shameless.

A Little Too Shameless...
This was my first experience with Gina L. Maxwell, and it's been an interesting one. I liked the book, sure, but I didn't want to.
Gina did a good job writing off the charts sex scenes, and making this obscene story somewhat romantic.
Yes, it's obscene. The heroine can't get off unless she's being treated like shit. Definitely not my kink, so I couldn't get into it. No, the hero didn't beat her, but he dominated her, was edging on forceful, and said humiliating things to her in the act of coitus. Definitely not my kink. But it worked for this book.
The hero is a stripper by night and owns a construction company by day (a la Flashdance). He doesn't need the money the stripping brings but he keeps doing it, even after he becomes exclusive with the heroine. While she doesn't ask him to stop stripping (though she should've because she attended a party where her sexy man was the main entertainment) he felt like she was trying to change him and left her, breaking her heart in the process.
Thankfully, he comes to his senses and works to get her back -- with forceful f##king, more slut-shaming, and then FINALLY tell her he loves her. How romantic. How heartwarming. How... NOT.
Be still my heart.
Let's just say that being called a slut while at my most vulnerable isn't a way to show me love. I think the hero should've gotten slapped at least twice, and he should've had to work HARDER at romancing the heroine. He literally walks into her apartment, seduces her with filthy words and hair pulling, and they continue their "relationship" of rough f##king and name calling without any real development.
So, they had a few conversations, many of which were "off-scene", but they didn't help me believe that there was more to the couple than humping against the wall.
While this book wasn't up my alley, I can see how some would find all the roughness and dominance sexy.
I may read more books from Gina L. Maxwell. I just hope they have more romance and less raunch.
While alpha-males push my HELL YES button, it crosses the line when the man treats the woman as less than precious -- even for sex.
The hero should've shown a LITTLE shame, it would've made the story deeper.
