    1. It was okay Heroine was really naive Dad did an unforgiveable thing so I don t know if I could get over his lie of omission This family drama was a big circle of lies, omissions and vengeful acts.

    2. Shameless was like walking straight into a soap opera and, oh man, it was just as addictive Scandal, drama, and romance abound The quick of it is that Pippa has found herself an unwed pregnant teenager And life in their remote Australian town is pretty much hell for her So when the offer to uproot and move back to America is offered by her long estranged grandfather her dad takes it Does it solve all of their problems Not by a long shot Now she s got hostile aunts to deal with, frustrations with [...]

    4. I thought this was going to be great when I started it The opening was gripping, and caught me right in the feels Pregnant and single, Pippa was a character to empathize with I could easily get into her head, see where it had been easy to misplace her trust Her father seemed strict but oh, so loving He was very obviously a man who cared about his children, and that gives him step up in my opinion What started to pull this one down for me was the contrived nature of the scheming family elders And [...]

    5. Shameless by Joan Johnston is a 2015 Dell publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I really liked the first book in this arc, which is a part of the long running Bitter Creek series I knew Pippa s story was next in line, and I was curious about her, so I ve been looking forward to reading this one I was a tiny bit concerned about reading a book centered around a girl Pippa s age, since, with only one or two exceptions, I have [...]

    6. Shameless by Joan Johnston i the 14th book in the Bitter Creek Series In this novel we find out what happens with Pippa Greyhawk, and her father Up to this point they have been living in Australia on her father s sheep ranch, but things start to happen after it is discovered that Pippa is pregnant, to say the least it is horrifying, from things being said loud enough for her father to hear and winding up in jail overnight, to Pippa having all kinds of things thrown at her and I do not mean neces [...]

    7. Originally Reviewed For Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyWhile this is the 14th book in the Bitter Creek Series, it s really the second book about the Flynn s and the Greyhawk s In this dynastic series about a family rivalry that goes back at least one generation but is wrapped in turmoil and tragedy, Joan Johnston triumphs Pippa Grayhawk was a naive young girl who was sheltered and rather isolated so of course she managed to get herself into trouble, literally Ashamed and feeling alone, [...]

    8. Pippa Grayhawk now finds herself nineteen, single and pregnant after falling in love with a married man that had lied to her telling her he loved her and wanted to marry her only to get her into bed Her father comes to her rescue but she quickly finds herself an outcast in the small community near her home in Australia When Pippa s father gets an offer from his own estranged father to return home to Wyoming to inherit the family ranch he takes the deal for not only his daughter s sake but his ow [...]

    9. ARC REVIEW Bitter Creek number 10 I love Joan Johnston, and the Bitter Creek series is a drama fest of manipulations and underhanded backstabbing, and finding true love despite everything going against you Shameless is book two of the King s Brats storyline I enjoyed Sinful, it was for me a great reintroduction to the series I missed the four books before Sinful, it was easy to get sucked back into this drama filled world that Joan Johnston has created Shameless was enjoyable it runs pretty much [...]

    10. On the whole I enjoyed this one by JJ who can be pretty hit or miss for me There were a lot of characters so the story didn t stay real focused on the two who were the main couple There wasn t really very many scenes between them to convince me that they were in love So pretty light on characterization The heroine was young and I had a few problems with her One of which was why she didn t tell the hero she was pregnant with another man s child I guess really only because she was young and dumb c [...]

    11. The continuing story of the Grayhawks and the Flynns In the previous book, Sinful, Matt Grayhawk had moved his family from Australia back to his estranged father s ranch in Wyoming The timing was good, in his opinion, because his twenty year old daughter is pregnant with a married man s baby and suffering from the small minded attitudes of the locals Moving to America will give her a fresh start.But things aren t going smoothly Matt s treatment of his half sisters, who were expecting the ranch t [...]

    12. Way Too Many Unresolved Subplots 2.5 StarsThis is the first book I ve read by this author and I thought this was a standalone novel and probably wouldn t have chosen it if I d known it was going to have so many cliffhangers I get that it s a family saga and understand this means the story continues with each main character s own story however, I counted 16 subplots with 13 remaining fully unresolved by the end I m guessing these will be addressed in later books, but it is very unsatisfying to be [...]

    13. Shameless is the second book in the King s Brats series, and I think I liked it than the first one, Sinful, mostly because it was a self contained story In Sinful, the romance took a back seat to all the set ups that were going on, we still didn t get much pay off, but at least some stuff is becoming clear about the many secrets of the Flynns and the Grayhwaks Regarding the couple in Shameless, I liked Pippa and Devon They were both fundamentally nice people with many issues to deal with Pippa [...]

    14. Having read numerous entries in the Bitter Creek series I can honestly say this is one book I hated to see end Especially because there is a bit of a cliffhanger There is a HEA for the main couple but there are unanswered questions for several secondary characters This was the story of Pippa and Devon that was only briefly mentioned in the last bookSinful However, this book revealed many of the secrets that exist between the long standing feud of the Greyhawk s and the Flynn s Not that I think t [...]

    15. Loving and being loved is never easy Especially when those that claim to be looking out for your best interest take every chance to tear you down I received an ARC of Shameless in exchange for an honest review This is a story that has it all Pippa naively fell for a man that did not share her feelings Now pregnant, ashamed and scorned she is faced with another change when her father up roots the family and heads to America This was a drastic decision but his heart was in the right place, he want [...]

    16. Joan Johnston s Bitter Creek Series has and will always remain one of my favorite series Joan can write a novel that leaves you riveting for Shameless is no exception, it was fantastic, maybe one of my favorites out of all the 14 books in this series Long awaited questions were answered and new ones were presented Shameless, like her other novels, leaves us hanging on the edge of our seats waiting for the next novel Loved this book, absolutely masterfully written.

    17. Devon is kind and sweet and the boy knows he s good looking and likes to tease his woman about it, he glanced over his shoulder and caught her watching and grinned Like what you see I liked this book Devon is really tender hearted especially when it came to animals.

    18. This is book 10 in the Bitter Creek series and it features Pippa Grayhawk and Devon Flynn Theirs is a type of insta love Even though it was quick, I wasn t really feeling the connection Unlike the other books I ve read in this series, I couldn t feel the emotions rolling of the pages Pippa is 19 years old and she acts like it Devon is 28 and he s so stubborn it s almost irritating Pippa s father, Matt, is a real jerk I realize things have happened to him in the past but he s behaving horribly to [...]

    19. Classic romance tale with the twist of broken families reforged into something stronger However, all characters read with the same voice, even used the same slang in their internal thoughts except for a few Australian words for one character in particular I struggled repeatedly with keeping track of whose head I was in Too many side stories left unraveled for my expectations.

    20. Fabulous I couldn t put it down I Just Love Joan Johnston s novels, the mystery, the romance and the royalty of family I will want to read of her novrls Thanks for a great read.

    21. Took me a while to get through this one This story really didn t celebrate the strengths of the characters This was definitely not as good as Sinful but maybe I was looking for a story about King s brat.

    22. SHAMELESS is filled with enough scandal, romance and drama to rival any daytime soap Pippa Greyhawk found herself in a tight spot when she turned up pregnant and to save her from the scorn and ridicule, her father sells his Australian Outback ranch and moves them back to his estranged father s ranch in Wyoming, but all this does is create a different set of problems for them to contend with Unwelcoming and hostile family members, pressure from her father to give up her baby for adoption and an u [...]

    30. I really like these two families and the rivalries they have They say they hate one another but it s only foreplay for the stories that are to come This story plays alongside the previous book which was nice because it answered some questions from the other pov At first I didn t really like Pippa I felt she was a bit spoiled but after reading and learning why she came to America I understood why she the way she was Devon was written so good hearted and I just loved him from the beginning This st [...]
