I loved the first 3/4th of this book, but the last 1/4th was a hot mess of drama. This book wasn’t as salacious as the title led me to believe. I think the age difference didn’t bother me as much as I thought. I finished this audiobook in one day. It was like watching an episode of reality tv---a train wreck that you can’t avert your eyes from. I found myself shaking my head in disbelief, but I was also enjoying it so much. I can see how this is a touchy subject for some people but I liked [...]
Good, Bad. Right, wrong. Premeditated, or just fate? In real life, however, even though experience often demonstrates that it's not that simple, we can't shake off the expectation that the difference between right and wrong is going to be easy to sort out.The reader feels so helpless, crying out don't, don'tbut of course she does. The agonizing suspense is reminiscent of the film Notes on a Scandal (same theme of older married teacher involved with her student) or Sin by Josephine Hart.Well done [...]
For open-minded over 18’s only!Joanne is a desperate housewife with an absent army husband and though financially secure she is most certainly not happy. Feeling overwhelmed and under appreciated a moments loss of concentration during the drive home from a weekend with the in-laws changes her life in ways she never imagined. Dicey has hit on a very controversial subject here that could possibly offend some readers………I on the other hand am not offended! But that’s easy to say because th [...]
First of all the idea of a grown woman having an intimate relationship with a 16-year old guy is not really that controversial to me since where I'm from the age of consent is 15. This is not a twisted tale of a female predator disguising as a housewife and mother nor is it a tale of a ruthless woman corrupting a man too young to know his own good so if you're in to that kind of kink then this is not the book for you. Its the story of a woman who after having had her needs neglected for too long [...]
This was an intense, emotionally draining, hard to put down read, surprisingly I really enjoyed it.
*Disclaimer: I Recevied a copy of this book in return for an honest review*Where do I start with "Shameful?" I do love taboo books, they give me an extra escape and really get my brain going so I was excited to start this book. It was a well written book and did a great job touching on a very Taboo subject without turning it into a dirty book about pedophilia. The relationship between Joanne and Alex starts innocently enough and you can see her trying hard to fight the feelings she may or may no [...]
This is possibly the hardest book I've ever put a review up for. My conclusion is that Dicey Grenor's writing makes me optimistic about reading her paranormal romance novels.Joanne is a 39 year old mother of three who falls, slowly, for sixteen year old Alex. The hardest part about reading this was that I wanted to shake Joanne until she went to therapy for her post-partum depression, distorted thinking, and inability to cope with her life. I get that there wouldn'g be much of a story if Joanne [...]
Shameful, by Dicey Grenor. ‘Shameful’ is Grenor’s first novel, and I do have to agree with the author, the behavior of the heroine was indeed, shameful. However, this did not take away from the fact that the book was an interesting read. It hooked you from the opening paragraph, until the final, unexpected ending. This story had everything, love, sex, unfaithfulness, heartbreak, and then self-fulfillment. The heroine spans the gamut. You hate her, you love her, you feel her pain in empathy [...]
Let me first say, as a mother of a teenage boy, the woman who put her hands on my son would regret it for the rest of her (very short) life!That being said, I loved this book! I found myself rushing home from work and immediately picking up where I had left off, neglecting housework, and staying up late because I just couldn't put it down. I had to keep turning the pages to see where the author would take the story. Throughout the book Joanne kept saying that this can't end well. As the reader, [...]
What can I say? A romance between a 16-year-old boy and a 39-year-old mother in a loveless, stale marriage. This story definatley keeps you rooting for their forbidden love, a great read for any romance buff!
I guess I'm not open-minded enough
