Loki Renard has brought us another shameful book, Shamefully Shared. I am completely unashamed to say that I loved reading every single dirty word of it. I love Loki’s work and her various worlds. My Loki Renard collection on my Kindle just keeps growing by leaps and bounds, and with books like Shared, it’s not hard to see why, now is it?
Lacey is a journalist. She likes to get the big stories. Three years ago, she was abducted by a Venezuelan militia group, accused of being a spy, and tortured. There was an elite military group that was there for another reason, and they decided to rescue her, even though she wasn’t a direct part of their mission. She promised the guys that she wouldn’t say anything about them, since they were a very, very secret group. But, when she gets home, she writes a story about her time and outs the guys. I mean, she’s a journalist, right? She believes in a good story and that people have the right to have information, and all. The problem is that her story gets them dishonorably discharged and disgraced.
Flash forward, and Lacey is in trouble again. This time, she and several other journalists have been digging into a huge story of high-level corruption. Over the past few months, most of the other journalists have died. One of them managed to end up streaming his death to a file-sharing site that they were all using. So when Lacey gets home and finds that there are guys in her house, she knows what’s coming. So, she calls the only person she can think of to keep her safe, Chase.
Chase is the only one of the guys who saved her who ever answered the phone when she called to apologize. So, when she calls for a rescue, he tells Rex, Brian, Col, and Max what happened and that he’s going to get her. After an argument, they all go out to rescue her.
So, with all the names, you can guess that it’s a reverse harem. Each of the guys has a very distinct personality and a very distinct relationship with Lacey. It’s really interesting to watch each relationship grow and evolve and see how each man reacts to Lacey and to everything that happens. It’s a great set of stories combined into one larger book, and it’s done pretty seamlessly. Since it’s a Loki book, expect spanking and all kinds of kinkery, and of course, a cage. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of this group.
OK, I want to know Brian and get into his workshop. He’s definitely got a flair for machinery. He’s devious and I love his devious mind.
Col. I like Col. He has a very clear view of Lacey. I think that he’s the only one who really saw through her. He watched her and knew her. He’s also right in that it will definitely take all of them to keep her happy.
Lacey would definitely run over the guys one on one. It’s not that she’s high-maintenance. She’s just very smart and very clever, and her brain is always working and trying to find the edges of the puzzle and how she can get around things.
I mostly liked the guys, there was one thing that they did that made me really mad. I understand why they did it, but I don’t like the way that they did it. It was pretty shitty.
OK, that’s all I have to say on this one. Go check it out and read all the other books that Loki has. Happy reading!
