Review: Shameless

 Shameless (Nashville Nights #1) Shameless by Cheryl Douglas

Trey Turner may be topping the country music charts but his life has been going downhill since his wife left him five years ago. He’s desperate to make amends for the mistakes he’s made and convince Sierra their love deserves a second chance.
Sierra Brooks is happy for the first time since her divorce. She has a career she loves and a fiancé who loves her. Unfortunately, her fiancé isn’t the only man professing his love. He may be able to offer her safety and security, but will she decide to risk everything for another chance with the man who broke her heart?

My Review:
Shameless is about a country music star, Trey, and his ex-wife, Sierra.  They had it all, love, money and a baby on the way.. then tragedy strikes.  They lost their child and somewhere along the way, each other.  She left him.  Fast forward 5 years and Trey has fallen off the wagon, blaming himself for the loss of their child and drowning in the despair of losing his one true love.  Suddenly, Sierra walks back into his life, with a great career and a new fiance and breaks his heart all over again.  Neither can ignore the passion and love that still exists between them, as strong as ever.  
This book is a roller coaster of emotions as we follow them through the ups and downs of struggling with their past, and the feelings they still feel for each other.  There are many twists and turns and by the end, we realize all the misunderstandings and secrets that led to their divorce.
There were many times throughout the book where I was actually overcome with emotion, it made me cry and smile and sometimes gasp or laugh out loud; a piece of art that couldn't have come to me at a better time!  Simply a must-read!
I give this book a solid 5 stars!  Thanks to the author and I'm (impatiently) awaiting the sequel!
