Life just threw me a curveball. I have to find a new place to live, but it must be in-district, because my son has his heart set on riding the bus to his first day of kindergarten.

When my brother’s sexy best friend suggests we move in with him, I have to remind myself the offer was for his spare bedrooms… not his bed.

Graham was my childhood crush and being in proximity with him is bringing back all kinds of feelings I thought were long gone. Looks like this time, he’s experiencing them too.

The problem is, now I have a son to think of. We’ve been through enough, and I can’t risk his heart… or mine.


My gorgeous new roommate is off limits. Not only is she my best friend’s little sister, she’s a single mom looking for help… not a hookup.

From the moment she’s under my roof, sparks fly, and suddenly the girl I’ve known my whole life becomes the woman I want long term.

I know I should stay away. Addyson deserves better than sneaking around, but she’s afraid to give me more. Plus the little boy she’s trying to protect… he’s already stolen my heart.

To let her get away… let them get away, would be a crying shame.

5 out of 5 stars
Crying Shame is a new standalone by Rebel Shaw. It’s their first standalone actually and I am here for it. I loved Royal and this book is just as amazing but with a different feel. It’s more about family.
Graham and Addyson have known each other for most of their lives. Graham is Addyson’s older brother’s best friend and have been best friends since they knew what the word friend meant. And Addyson has had a crush on Graham since she was a teenager. When she got pregnant, she had to let her crush go. She had a little man to take care of and Graham wasn’t exactly a serious relationship kind of guy. He still wasn’t. That was until he saw Addy in a different light. It was like a light switch. One minute he was the protective friend and the next he wanted her like no other woman. It was a total shock to his system and Addy was even more confused…
Did he only want her now since she needed a place to stay after her apartment was flooded? Did he really understand that her and Noah, her five-year-old son were a package deal? Graham was always there for her but this was different. This was everything and Addy didn’t know what to do with that. She could handle her heart being broken but not Noah’s. But damn, the man was easy to fall for especially when she had dreamed about this for years.
I ♥️ Graham and Addyson! They are adorable, sweet, flirty, and hot AF. They just click. I also love Noah, that little man is adorable, smart, and his bond with Graham is goals. Maybe one day we will see these characters again, I can only hope.
“You’re Addyson. Sexy as fuck, a kick-ass mom, a loving sister and daughter, and the woman I can’t stop thinking about.”
“I’ve been dying to kiss you all day,” I whisper, turning us so she’s out of sight in case her son returns.
“Yeah? Prove it,” she whispers, her sweet voice all breathy.
“You make it impossible for me not to fall for you.”
“I’ll catch you. My arms are wide open. I’ll catch you both.”
