Blog Tour and Giveaway: Shame on You by Tara Sivec
War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.
When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.
As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one.
Tara Sivec is a USA Today best-selling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when they all three of them become adults and move out.
After working in the brokerage business for fourteen years, Tara decided to pick up a pen and write instead of shoving it in her eye out of boredom. She is the author of the Playing with Fire series and the Chocolate Lovers series. Her novel Seduction and Snacks won first place in the Indie Romance Convention Reader’s Choice Awards 2013 for Best Indie First Book.
In her spare time, Tara loves to dream about all of the baking she’ll do and naps she’ll take when she ever gets spare time.
Tara also writes under the pen name T.E. Sivec.
First let me start with the length of the book. Don't let it fool you. It may only be 140 pages, but it is 140 pages of fun! There is no spot lacking in this story. Tara used every single page to her advantage, or ours. Either way, this isn't one of the novellas that leaves you dumbfounded and feeling used. Well, you might feel slightly used, but only in a Tara Sivec kind of way!
So the meat and potatoes of the story. Yes, it's a "love story". But only as Tara can do, it is so much more! It's GD entertaining all of the way through. I mean nothing smells of success than sexually charged attractions that should be forbidden.
Kennedy and Griffin. I shouldn't have to say anymore. But I guess you expect me to. Griffin is Kennedy's ex-husband's former best-friend. Forbidden. Off limits. Never gonna happen. Well, maaaaaybe... If Kennedy can get over herself and not beat him to catching that GD bail-jumper!
Witty. All of the supporting characters. I can't seem to sum them up any other way. I found myself in tears over these characters. They added that extra umph we all need to keep the story-line even more fabulous.
Are you still wanting more? Well, those that follow my reviews know, there is a good chance you won't get a whole lot more from me. I am not the type to read and tell. I will only tell you what you need to know. And what you need to know that this is almost as funny as The Chocolate Lovers Series. Yes, I said almost. I am not sure if Tara would ever top those books. If she does, well, I am in. Wait, I forgot my point. Oh, even though this isn't AS funny, it is still funny as GD hell!!!! It's a whole different story. It is in no way the same as others. It stands all by its lonesome on a cliff waiting for a companion. So just read it. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Are you confused... Well if you read the book, you will laugh your back-door off!!!!
