I love the beginning and the overall plot, but I got lost towards the end. Regardless, Shame was a decent read with plenty that kept me interested. Apr 16, Roge rated it it was amazing. Expected publication: View all 5 comments.
Lisa is running from her past and then Tristan turns up as her new professor. How does he tie in with her past? If you've read the other books, you will know that this series tend to be on the OTT side, I did like them once upon a time. I had no desire to put all the pieces of the story together and so another DNF.

Feb 24, Sofia Lazaridou rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones that pose the most danger, just like the ugliest of the world turn into objects of absolute beauty. The cancer was ugly, but Kiersten turned it to beauty.
And Lisa… her past was ugly, but look at the beauty of the disaster that struck: Tristan, redemption within their family, and finally, love. I think the world has it wrong when it strives after the beauti Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones that pose the most danger, just like the ugliest of the world turn into objects of absolute beauty.
I think the world has it wrong when it strives after the beautiful. I adored the suspense part of the story, I am not sure how Lisa managed to miss all the pointers about who her stalker was, but it added to the excitement. That plot twist in the end was the perfect climax to this side of the story.
Tristan might be ideal for some, but unfortunately he wasn't my man. And it's not because Wes set the bar too high for anyone to compete. For some reason I didn't like Tristan as much as I feel I should have. Maybe it was due to his behavior in the early events of the book when he didn't know Lisa very well and he was a little prejudiced against her. Still he is a great person and very likeable.
I am sure you will love him. I missed Wes's wisdom at the beginning of each chapter. I liked the quotes that replaced them though. Not because they were nice or funny or inspiring, but because they gave us the much needed insight to what happened when Lisa was dating Taylor, without interrupting the flow of the story.
Mar 09, YaYa rated it it was amazing. I would probably change one thing in this story and I still gave it a 5 stars. I've been dying for this book.
So we all know how perfect Wes is, right? Even in his little parts in Shame I love him more and more. He's the life of it all. He kicked Cancer in the ass, married Kiersten and went on to becomes football player.
How about Gabe the movie star in hiding who lost his fianc I would probably change one thing in this story and I still gave it a 5 stars.
That's alright, Saylor picked up his heart and he put a ring on it. I can keep going on about these two books. But this is not about them, this is about Lisa aka Mel. So if your remember where we last left off with Lisa, she thought she saw a ghost from her past.
Now I can understand why Gabe was so overprotective of her. Why she was in hiding and needed a new identity. But some times as hard as you try, you can't run from your past. So the new guy Tristan, who's also filthy rich, is linked to her past.
Not telling you. All I can say is 2 wrongs don't make 1 right. Both Lisa and Tristan hold so many secrets you know this was going to be a disaster when those secrets came out to the open.
Tristan came to town with one thought on his brain and the moment they crashed into each other, life took a turn and those thoughts disappeared like vapor. Although he denied it and was rather the little asshole to her, he couldn't fight what was brewing inside his heart.
The author did a great job at captivating me with the storyline and with the few twists and turns some mind-fuckery I devoured this read. It wasn't InstaLove, more like I hate her but still want to help her and shit I'm having feelings for her. At the beginning of every chapter she gave us journal pieces to the sick twisted mind of the person responsible for Lisa's past.
I found myself saying quite a few times: Run Dammit. Why is the book called Shame? Well it's a damn Shame all the shit that happened to her and the ones caught in this monsters path. I feel like this series showed that no matter how hard life is and what it throws at you, you can make a new future for yourself and you don't have to be blood related to anyone to call them a family. Wes, Gabe and Lisa needed each other and it's one of my favorite things about this series.
Their ongoing love for one another and the acceptance of a new life after all the wrong. Am I a happy camper? You bet I am. Of course the greedy reader that I am I wants another novella. Yup, short little story of what's going on with the Ruin gang. Maybe a wedding. Life after college and married life. More Please!! Part of her past was eluded to during Toxic, but for the first time we get the clear picture of just what she escaped when she escaped her life two years ago.
For two years Lisa has lived with guilt over the part she played in her past, two years of living in fear But when Tristan appears and ignites a fire within her, Lisa begins of the journey of having to face her past. As each chapter opens we get a piece of the puzzle. An entry that showcases the manipulation she endures at the hands of a boy that was sick.
A boy that was out to ruin everyone, Lisa included. She feels desire for the first time. A need to be close to someone, a feeling that had escaped her for years.
As her past is coming back to haunt her present, Lisa is forced to face her fears and take control of her life. I love these characters. I love the feels that Rachel Van Dyken evokes in you as a reader. Shame was just as fantastic as the prior books in this series and although Ruin will always be my favorite of this series, Shame held its own. For those that are familiar with this author, you know what I mean. These characters have the ability to not only bring you to your knees emotionally, they have the power to make you laugh out loud.
The levity that the humor brings to this story was done perfectly. It allowed you to cheer Lisa on and want her to find a way to move past the fear and find the girl that was lost all those years ago.
You fought for her to forgive herself. Another stellar installment to this series and another fantastically written story from Ms. Van Dyken that completes the journey of this group of friends. Surj Harvey 4. Mystery and suspense are two elements in a book that absolutely have me clawing at the pages, my inquisitive side always getting the better of me, my desperation to uncover the missing parts of the puzzle so strong that more often than not, I'll pull an all nighter just so that I get the answers I crave.
Even my husband knows better than to interrupt me when I get that cr Review: Even my husband knows better than to interrupt me when I get that crazed look in my eyes The demons the proudest scars. What happens when the element of surprise is gone or so you think? It wasn't about what was going to happen because that wasn't difficult to work out and to be honest, I don't think it was the author's intention to keep that information hidden.
It was there plain as day for her readers to work out. Instead, it was about the why's, when's and who's, the story line so intricately woven, the tangled web of secrets, lies and deceit so strong, I was desperate to watch it all unravel and see the effect it would have on the characters and the dynamics of their relationships.
The thing about secrets is, they never stay hidden for long and the past always has a habit of catching up with you and that was absolutely the case here. Unfortunately, the thing about running, the thing about trying to start over- eventually that hope is dashed by your past coming up to greet you like the fires of hell.
It also went a long way in explaining the over protective nature of her best friend Gabe. Ah the penny finally dropped and I got it!!! Lisa's story left me feeling saddened, devastated and even scared at one point. It was like watching a thriller Yup, that pretty much summed up this book for me.
Hearts don't make sounds when they break, but there's pain- God, is there pain. One minute you're find and you're able to breathe, able to feel blood pump through your veins. And the next minute? You're unable to focus on anything but the tightness in your chest as the world falls from under your feet and takes your heart right along with it.
Rachel Van Dyken gave me a whole host of new characters in "Shame", some lovable, some likable, some frightening the ever loving life out of me and then there was one who just plain and simple weirded me out. Lisa's character was one I'd grown to really like over the course of this series and in this book, my heart shattered for her. Her back story was ugly pure and simple. Not surprisingly, it had moulded her into the person she had become I really wanted Tristan to be the one who fixed her, put her back together, help her overcome all that she had been through but he was harboring his own secrets and initially, I really struggled with his character.
What were his motives? It appeared he had his own hidden agenda and although I knew what that was, I also knew the consequences had the potential to shatter Lisa.
And Taylor I loved what she made me feel. I loved that instead of being afraid of me, she fed the beast. She fed me more than my heroine addiction, more than coke, more than the girls, the fast cars.
She filled me temporarily but I knew it would come to and end someday. She had a conscience, whereas I did not, and I'd have to change tactics with her.
The story line for Lisa's book was different, unique, a breath of fresh air and I really struggled to put it down. The writing was truly engaging and a true reflection of the tone and mood of this book. I've enjoyed every single book in this series and am gutted it's come to an end.
A job well done Rachel Van Dyken. I rated "Shame" 4. Sep 21, Novel Grounds rated it it was amazing. Rachel has done it again. I have been anxiously awaiting Lisa's story and I finally got to devour it. At one point I even cursed loud enough to wake my husband up. I love when a novel has a twist that I don't see coming.
Favorite Quote: She is haunted with every move she makes by that past and never lets anyone see how truly vulnerable she is as a result of it. No one until now. Lisa is no different. My heart broke from that first peek into her past. Enter Tristan. The Professor. I know that you may think you know where this novel is going, but you have no idea. I swear it. You don't.
So many secrets and so much broken inside both of them. But she it comes to things like fate and destiny?
You don't really have a choice. This novel has you guessing and wondering a lll the way until its epic ending. I couldn't figure out what was coming next. I swear every time I thought I had it down, Rachel threw another curveball at me. She wraps you up in Lisa and Tristan's web. You want so much for a happy ending, but sometimes we don't always get what we want. This novel mixes the light humor that you have come to love from RVD and mixes in a darkness that I thought really gave a depth to the novel.

The characters not only were wonederfully presented to us, but the more we got to know them the more we related to them. I fell hard for this novel. This series as a whole just plucks at you heart strings. Dive into it and let Rachel work her magic yet again on you.
It is worth the ride. Everything done in darkness, will eventually be brought into the light. I was the party girl, the one that seemed confident, but it was a lie. When guys kissed me--I felt only pain. When they touched me--Nothing but fear. Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone that will see you as their world. I should have known it was just another lie--I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea.
You think you know my story, but you don't Sep 14, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: Anyone that is around me for five minutes knows what a huge RVD fan I am. I have LOVED everyone of her books and will one-click anything she writes, without even reading the synopsis. Ruin was the first book I ever read by RVD, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
I started Shame with mixed emotions and extremely high expectations. How would this series end? I was so very tired of being that girl. The brave girl who pretended everything Anyone that is around me for five minutes knows what a huge RVD fan I am. The brave girl who pretended everything was fine. I have adored Lisa since Ruin and my opinion of her has never wavered. After finishing Shame, I loved her even more. I was literally hanging on every chapter wondering what revelation would be revealed.
My heart ached for her and all that she had to endure from Taylor. How do you see so much when I try so hard to hide it? Maybe because Gabe and Wes are so amazing, but I was not a huge fan of Tristan. He is a complex character and is manipulating Lisa on two fronts.
I eventually grew to like him, but never felt any heart stopping moments with his character. Perhaps if there were more buildup with their relationship? Funny how one person can change your mind, your heart, your soul so completely that you forget what you were fighting for the first place. However, it is a great book and is well written, and I am certain Ruin fans will love it. I applaud Rachel for breaking her norms and giving us a such a thought provoking book.

Life is not always rainbows and happiness. Perhaps some day Rachel will give us a peek into the lives of these beloved characters again. I can not imagine truly saying goodbye to them and have truly loved this series! I highly recommend it to any NA fan! View 1 comment. Jun 01, Liza rated it it was amazing.
Received an ARC for an honest review Dark, mysterious and haunting. Shame is intelligently written. I could already call myself a seasoned Rachel Van Dyken reader having read a number of her books and loved every single one. Shame is no different. It is too close to me getting on the psychological side of things. Physical sickness and death has already been checked into Rachel's Ruin Series. When I thought that she couldn't get deeper after Toxic anymore, she writes something like Shame.
It is very good! Her characters specifically Tristan and Lisa were perfect. The darkness within them individually is so strong it will compel you to read the book in one- sitting just to get over the mystery with. Rachel has again played with my mind with the twistsnot only one but with a major surprise in the end. She just can't stop to put a little spark of giving her books extraordinary things, like out of this world and very unusual.
And of course, a Ruin series book isn't complete with the great words from Wes Michels. He just has to end it! Yet again, Rachel putting her words into Wes' mouth? Definitely pooled my eyes with tears.
Sep 23, Kelly rated it it was amazing. I was lucky enough to recieve an Adavanced copy of this book for an honest review. Rachel seems to surprise me at every turn with each new book she publishes. This is Lisa's story and there's a lot of lead up and hints to her situation in Ruin Fearless and Toxic but nothing can prepare you for this. I was pulled in from page one. At one point I got so mad that I threw my reader.
Then ending is amazing. What you thinks going to happen doesn't. This is definitely a must read. Feb 18, Tricia Santos rated it it was amazing Shelves: Every book in the Ruin series may be read as a standalone. Her Seaside series? Stole my heart. The Bet series? I choke on my laughter. Slaughtered me. Her Eagle Elite series? My preferred form of crack. Broke me. Healed me.

What am I going to do with my life now without Wes, Gabe, and Tristan? Not to mention, the women who saved them, Kiersten, Saylor, and Lisa. I love them all. Their chemistry as individuals, as lovers, and as a family has made a huge impact on my life. In the form of a ghost. A person I had no idea existed. A person who knew all my shame. A person I fell in love with. Toxic was heartbreaking. And so I was truly scared to read Shame.
But, because I knew it would consume me. And it did. From start to finish, my eyes raced across my iPad screen as I devoured the unconventional love story that is Lisa and Tristan.
It was riveting, dramatic, haunting, and most of all, beautiful. However, I can safely say that we barely scratch the surface of her past until we dive into Shame. I was horrified, I was sympathetic, and even I could feel the shame.
It amazes me each and every time how talented RVD is with making me feel! With a complex plot that seems so simple, Tristan and Lisa manage to take my breath away and effortlessly steal my heart. I wanted her. I wanted the bad. I wanted it more than the truth. Give me the lie. Just give me her. She has a terrifying past with her ex, Taylor. And not only do I admire her for her ability to survive that, but I can see how much she grows throughout the course of the book and that astonishes me.
She still manages to lean on her family, Wes, Kiersten, Saylor, and Gabe. And she still manages to find love and peace in Tristan. Letting you in. Keeping you out. I was seriously glad that we got to see alternating POVs between him and Lisa. I liked the way that RVD set up his character. We discovered new things about him basically every other chapter. But, by the end we realize we found yet another Wes and Gabe.
He could almost give Wes a run for his money in things he says that makes me swoon. I laughed, I almost cried. I got angry. I fell in love. Over and over again. And I love you more…and more…with every passing day. View all 3 comments. Per dimenticare 4 stelline e mezzo! Alcuni anni prima Lisa era una modella conosciuta, ma aveva commesso azioni perfide ed orribili insieme al suo ex, un manipolatore psicopatico che abusava addirittura di lei.
Il protagonista maschile lo incontriamo invece per la prima volta in questo romanzo: A questo punto penserete alla classica storia romantica studentessa-professore Come nei precedenti libri di questa serie, nella trama vengono toccati argomenti seri e delicati e non manca nemmeno un pizzico di suspense e di tragedia.
This one surprised me a little. I've gotta say that this book in the series was a bit darker than it's predecessors in this series. I love a little dark with a side of crazy in my books, so this was fine by me. If you've read the earlier books in the series, then you know that Lisa is kind of the last woman standing now that the other main characters have paired off and married.
Honestly, I loved the other books, but I was afraid that this would be another "perfect" love story full of rain Whew! Honestly, I loved the other books, but I was afraid that this would be another "perfect" love story full of rainbows and sunshine. Van Dyken definitely threw me for a loop, completely changing it up! It also had a dangerous, creepy vibe vs. With the memory of her bat-shit-crazy, abusive as hell, psycho ex-boyfriend to keep her company, I'm just surprised that she didn't become a total shut-in!
All in all, this was a very entertaining read! It was action-packed and fast-paced. I listened to the audiobook and it had wonderful narration as well.
It is part of a series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone. Great book! Sep 19, Carissa rated it really liked it Shelves: But that's the thing about choices; you don't regret them until after they've been made.
It may be a second later, or a year. Sometimes you spend your whole life being a victim--until you decide you want to be a survivor. This was a lovely and enjoyable read. I'll be honest and say that the most memorable parts in this book was the Diary of Taylor B. Wes and Gabe were such fierce and protective sweethearts.
I really need to read the other books in the series in order to get the full picture. Please understand this is simply my opinion. View all 6 comments.
Oct 06, Red Cheeks Reads rated it it was amazing. These NA reads have wormed their way into my heart so hard. This whole damn story with her has been so mysterious and I really wanted to know what her deal was. I love how all of these books make you feel all WTF for most of the book.
So be prepared for a pretty dark read, guys! The secrets, mystery, and the sexiness was so intoxicating; grabbing me from the beginning and keeping me hooked until the end. Of course the rest of the gang was in this book as well my favorite, Gabe. Le Sigh. They were just as charming and endearing as ever, also bringing some comedy, as well. It was good to be back with my guys! They were like one big happy world-saving family. And the new addition Tristan, well, the boy is just smoking hot.
He was a terrible flirt with a side of alpha. He still managed to uber sexy and Lisa and his chemistry was off the charts!
It is hard to explain but a lot of the time they do not even include the actual act of having sex but they still manage to give me the sexy tingles I love so much. Also, she seems to be really good at dragging on the sexual tension between characters for a good while and I really love that! This is a complete novel with a very Happily-Ever-After. Tristan and Lisa will reach out and hug your heart with their dark story. This book had it all; mystery, love, danger, and it was oh so sexy!
Loved it! Nov 02, Elodie rated it it was amazing Shelves: It had everything I love: I'm usually pretty good at guessing these things, but in this book there are actually two twists! One that I did see coming And one that left me totally speechless. It's true that Shame was a l 6 stars This book was brilliant. It's true that Shame was a lot darker than Ruin and Toxic But, like my sweet sweet Wes said in the fabulous epilogue of this wonderful book: It should fight for the ugly ; it should hope for the damned ; it should seek the lost - because in the end, if there weren't tears, if there wasn't fighting, then do you really deserve to feel satisfied and happy?
They were I walked toward the very sun that had the potential to burn me. Feb 16, Kim rated it it was amazing Shelves: My past came knocking sooner that I could have imagined. We were teased by Lisa's back story in Toxic. She has been around in all of the books in this series as she is friends with Gabe, Wes, Saylor, and Kiersten. But now she is really struggling. Gabe's past came out and now hers is haunting her in the form of threate 4.
Gabe's past came out and now hers is haunting her in the form of threatening mail. She already lives with guilt and shame for things she did when younger and her painful history with her ex-boyfriend Taylor has left permanent emotional and psychological scars. Shame always comes. But now there is a new, young, hot professor, Tristan, who favors her ex.
And he seems intent on calling her out and making her life miserable. And he has ties with people in her life, making it harder to escape his attention. She is already scared, insecure, and full of guilt and self loathing, She's afraid of the threats, her past catching up to her, and her attraction to her professor.
He does not fit with her previously set plans. She was so marked by her past that she tried to reinvent herself and leave it all behind. But it never really leaves her mind, and with new threats stalking her it is just adds more fear and tension. But she does not like to be a burden to those she cares about, so tries to be strong and handle everything herself.
Tristan is taking time away from his real life to do some investigating. He needs answers. He is angry and set on revenge based on one side of a story he has been privy to. He feels like people do not really know who he is and he might not have all of the answers himself, He is ruthless in business, but not so secure regarding real relationships, He needs order and control to keep his life compartmentalized and safe.
But Lisa brings some messiness, disorder, and makes him feel. In order to get the answers he seeks, he has to be secretive himself.
And as the story unfolds he begins finding more questions than answers. But their circumstances also add a forbidden element. There is a pull that they both should resist. But when that proves difficult, there is more at risk than they think Evil manipulative games from her past are haunting both of them in the present. There is the dichotomy of good vs. I will admit it took me a bit to warm up to Tristan and even to them together.
But as they story got more convoluted, motivations were questioned, and decisions were made, I could feel their connection and emerging feelings. I began to see them more as a couple. They were two people with facades that had to be broken down bit by it.
Half truths, hidden agendas, and misconceptions were in play from the beginning. Trust and security are difficult when there are so many secrets and insecurities. But deep down they both had their demons to fight and could provide strength to each other in their battles. I loved getting more with Wes, Gabe, Kiersten, and Saylor They love Lisa fiercely.
Their interactions are both funny and taunting, but also supportive and protective, They are truly a family and all have lived through some kind of hell to come out at a better place. It is only right that they try to lead Lisa away from the darkness and chains of her past and try to help her continue to move past it, "The broken pieces are the prettiest ones, Lisa.
There were some very toxic and manipulative people in this one. It was truly disturbing and downright creepy at times. There was a layered plot with many twists and turns. I will say that I figured it out by really analyzing it all, but it did not lessen the tension or anxiety I felt.
