#ReleaseBlitz Blame It On The Shame Pt 2 Ashley Jade #DarkRomance #RomanticErotica Book Review


Title : Blame It On The Shame Part 2 
Author : Ashley Jade 







"Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned."


I've fallen in love with Lou-Lou.
And I'll stop at nothing to keep her away from you.


But there's one thing I never counted on...

The moment when our 'truths' would turn into lies.


I thought Bruno DeLuca was our biggest threat.

I was wrong.

Because the fire burning between us—would end up destroying us. 


And killing me. 


***

People think love conquers all.

What they don't know is that for some of us...it comes at a price.

The ultimate price.

Sometimes, love can end up wrecking you—instead of saving you.

Sometimes, love can quickly turn to hate.

And sometimes...even after you've killed your demons—there's still one more that comes to the surface.

"There are two sides to every story...this is ours." 


Warning: Due to strong language, some violence, explicit sexual content, and some dark elements, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

*Trigger Warning*: Any readers with sensitivity to dark reads should proceed with caution and at their own risk.



You've been warned.

Author's Note: This is part two of a three-book series. (Blame It on the Shame: Lou-Lou and Ricardo's story.)
However, in order to truly enjoy Lou-Lou and Ricardo's story, it is advised you read 'Blame It on the Pain' first as this story will follow the same timeline.




I don't know where he is...but I know he's close. I open my eyes and blink rapidly due to the rain coming down much harder now.
Tingles erupt on my skin and the air thickens when I look ahead and see the outline of him walking. Only he's not walking toward me, he's walking away from me. He must have just left.
When he takes another step, I realize he's not actually walking at all...he's stumbling.
He holds his arm out, bracing himself against the alley wall briefly and I continue to watch him. He waits a beat and attempts to walk again, but stumbles...even worse this time.
I've never seen Ricardo so out of sorts before. Panic jams in my chest with my next thought. Oh, god. What if he's hurt? What if someone attacked him?
And just like that, I'm running as fast as I can to get to him. Since he's less than a block away, I catch up quickly.
His back is turned to me but I reach for his arm as he begins to sway.
His arm twitches and I can feel the chords of his muscles begin to tighten.
Shit, he's going to take a swing. He hates being touched.
“It's just me,” I say quickly. “Only me.”
“I know it's you.” His voice comes out slurred and gruff.
“Are you okay?”
He yanks his arm away. “I'm fine. Leave me the fuck alone. I don't need your help.”
I force myself to ignore the sharp sting of his words before slowly backing away from him.
He falls against the alley wall and hangs his head. “Christ, I hate it when Tyrone's right. I'm never drinking again.”
“Famous last words,” I say before I can stop myself.
Memories of the day we first met and when he said those very same words to me begin to play through my head like a slideshow...
At least, until his head snaps up and he shoots me a look so threatening the entire world stops. “Fuck you,” he spews. 








Holy mother of pearl. This book has left me speechless. Three things about this book that will stay with me forever. It had its laugh out loud moments.
It had me in the corner with my Blankey rocking back and forth crying. The end of this book gave me  goose bumps.

I'm a lover of psychology, romance, erotica, dark romance, dark erotica, and anything thought provoking...except for math. I've always read books growing up, and after having a strange dream one night; I decided to just go for it and publish my first series. 
Little did I know, I would end up falling head over heels in love with writing. 
If I'm not researching, paying off student loan debt, or writing a novel- you can usually find me watching my favorite series on Netflix, stealing my man’s t-shirts, or pondering the meaning of life.

Review: Blame It on the Shame

Blame It on the Shame Blame It on the Shame by Ashley Jade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ashley Jade is a new to me author. There are no words I can say that will do this book justice. I freaking loved it. The best book I've read all year.
The travesty that both Lou-Lou and Ricardo have went through is enough to make anyone give up. They are both really strong survivors.
Amongst all the heartache through the whole book there were a few laugh out loud moments. I highly recommend this book.
Steam factor 4.

This taboo love is so dirty, so wrong, and your lady business is gonna thank you!
Warning: It’s okay if you like it, because this is a judgment-free zone. But these two are about to get it on like their dad may walk in at any moment. Enjoy!!

Five Stars-

If you have never read an Alexa Riley book you really need to.
If you like over the top Alphas, possessive males and insta-love this is the author for you.
Jasper and Libby have been in love from the moment they first saw each other. Afraid of tearing the family apart they kept their feelings to themselves. Until they couldn't.

I watched my mom cheat on him and in return he destroyed her. I will never do that to a woman. I get thirty hours with Liz and then we are both walking away. At the end of the day, all we will have is the memories we have created here in Miami.

One day while looking for a certain book I was interested in reading I found I couldn't find it. A friend told me to write and I thought she was crazy but decided to give it a try. 80,000 words later and I can officially add writing to my love list.

Sin, Sin, Sin...
Ladies you will need plenty of tissues with this book. Rocky had a horrible life until Sinclair came into it. Together they made each other whole.
Even though this is a standalone I would recommend starting with the first book Rafael. That way you aren't lost.
Steam factor 8.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved it. Even though I thought Bianca was a harda$$ at first she grew on me. And well Hunter was just awesome. We all need a brother like Giovanni. He really did come through in the end for his family.
What I didn't like about this book was the inconsistencies.
