Publisher's Summary

It's a life of high-profile drama for the powerful Murdochs of Chesterton, Virginia, and they just keep the scandals coming.

Evan Murdoch hoped things had finally settled down in his life. But now he's caught between two feuding women: his pregnant fiancée and his recovering alcoholic wife, who's fighting their divorce with every dirty, seductive trick she's got. But even that doesn't compare to the dangerous secret Evan's harboring - one that could send a Murdoch to jail for a very long time.

Party boy brother Terrence Murdoch is recovering from his devastating car accident. But his relationship with his journalist girlfriend may not survive, especially when she reconnects with her family, her church, and her ex.

After the attempt on his life, half-brother Dante Turner lays low but not for long. A mysterious young woman may be the answer to his vengeful prayers when it comes to bringing down the Marvelous Murdochs, and this time he's going for the jugular.

Shelly & The Murdochs Never Disappoint

I couldn't wait for the next installment of this series. Who shot Dante? Will Evan ever be able to marry Lila or will he stay married to his wife? Is Terrance cutout to be someone's boyfriend? Well I got my answer, but I now have to wait for the next installment to answer a whole new set of questions. The Murdoch's drama is always interesting and Simi Howe always does a great job of narrating!

Too much drama

The book series is okay. I enjoyed the 1st and 2nd book but the last book felt over the top with unrealistic characters and too much drama. I like my books to end and after reading 3 books this series will continue but I am done.

This series is the bomb!!

I’m so excited about this series, It was really good. I couldn’t stop listening to it. I hope this isn’t the end because I’m on pins and needles waiting for the next episode. This was the first series I read by this author but it won’t be the last!

Disappointed

Do not like the fact that this story had weak female characters. Also the fact that this story never seemed to end.

This review is written before finishing the book

What disappointed you about Lust and Loyalty?

I understand the narrator is different than the first two books but could she at least try to stay in character with the other books? Why would Shelly allow her to change Lelia's name like that in the LAST Book?? Very frustrating.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was boring and didn't try to imitate the last narrator. She didn't emphasize the voices or make an effort to differentiate the men and women voices. Couldn't even tell Evan's ex wife was white, she sounded just like Lelia and Paulette. Bland and boring.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.
