There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

MY REVIEW

How well can you keep a secret?

Nick and Faith met at her winery and their meeting was chock full of sexual tension. The author wrote their scenes so well that the sizzle, the spark, and their chemistry virtually jumped out at me. Nick was a successful corporate attorney, given the nickname of Tiger, to which he more than lived up to. Faith was a winery owner whose true calling was as an artist. They couldn't be more dissimilar, but it was evident as their story unfolded (and as we were treated to their exquisite banter), their differences weren't going to stop their inevitable connection.

Despite how fast their relationship was moving and despite them both trying to fight their feelings, love found its way between these two and I loved that. But there were so many secrets. I loved the way the author left me as clueless as her characters. As each secret was revealed, it was just one more surprise. I was thoroughly entertained by the way that I was led with this story. Each revelation, each private fact, and each public disclosure made me feel closer to the characters. Well to Nick anyway. It took me a while to warm up to Faith but I got there in the end.

There are still so many secrets to be uncovered and I'm eager to see what the blow back will be once each of them are discovered in Shameless.
