Publisher's Summary

I didn’t do it. I never betrayed my friend. Last year, I was kidnapped along with presidential candidate’s daughter Lindsay Bosworth, forced to help her assailants, my mother implicated in one of the biggest political scandals in American history. I've been cleared of any wrongdoing, but that doesn’t matter. Once you’re tried by the media, you’re guilty as sin. The truth doesn’t get the public’s attention. But shame? Shame sells. And everyone assumes you’re tainted. 

Now I have my own personal security team, courtesy of the United States government. Not the one you learned about in civics class, though. I’m being tracked by the deep state. The shadow government. They’ve assigned Silas Gentian to be with me 24/7. He thinks he knows everything about me - all of it bad - and he does. On paper. Like everyone else, he assumes I’m a traitor. A backstabber. A betrayer. Someone who helped a group of violent psychopaths, puppets of powerful men in Washington who made me into a tool. Yet I see how he looks at me. True desire can’t be faked. Or hidden. And that goes both ways. He assumes I’m trying to fool him. And he might be right. But not for the reasons he thinks. 

A Shameless Little Con is the first book in the Shameless trilogy by USA Today best-selling author Meli Raine.

Shamless Con

This is a spin off of the Harless Series.

After helping to save her friend, and Senators daughter Lindsay Bosworth, the tables have turned for Jane. Her mother is dead, and she has no friends to turn to, and in the pole of social media she is being slaughtered. Jane knows she's done nothing wrong, but the powers that set up Lindsay to make her look guilty, have now turned their sights on Jane.

Jane has been assigned her own moody body guard Silas Gentian 24/7 and it's become a blessing and a curse each time Jane is faced with the court of public opinion. Warning this book has a cliff hanger, but I can't wait to start book 2!

Virginia Rose does a fantastic job providing attitude and anger into all the characters interwoven in this political drama.

Caution... Cliffhanger

Let me start out this review with a bit of a warning. Things are not resolved in this book. If you do not like cliffhangers and do not want to invest the time and energy into reading Books 2 & 3 of this series, walk away. Walk away before you get hooked into this fascinating story with heart-stopping characters, mystery, suspense and intrigue. Another note I want to add is that I think it might be better if you start with the Harmless series before starting this one. I had a bit of trouble filling in the blanks that probably would have flowed naturally had I read that series first.

With all of that being said, let me tell you that I had a hard time putting this book down. When I simply HAD to put it down, I got the Audible copy and listened to that. The narrator was amazing! The relationship between Silas and Jane was deep and heart wrenching, and at times a bit humorous, especially when they went to visit Alice. What a hoot she was!

There was a bombshell dropped at the very end. Half of it I expected but the other half totally threw me!

Continuation of the harmless little plan trilogy.
