There's something lurking in all of us.
Something we hide and shelter from those we love in order to protect them.
A darkness we try to suppress because we're ashamed of who that makes us.
Because that's the thing about Shame.
It wounds us. It damages us.
Or, for the few poor souls out there like me...it defines us.
It's there—in the shadows, beneath the surface...just waiting.
Until you let it break free
And the darkness consumes you.
My name is Ricardo DeLuca.
There are two things you need to know about me. The first—is that my heart will always bleed for her...
The second— is that I'm the son of the devil himself—the most feared mob boss who ever lived.
That is...until me.
Ricardo's heart might bleed for me but my heart shatters for him.
Over and over again.
I thought I fought all my demons...
I thought the worst was over.
I was wrong.
Because it's not my demon I'm battling this time...
And it wants to claim something I don't have.
And that's a battle I'm afraid I won't win.

PART 3 WAS EVERYTHING!
"Don't look for the colour in the dark ....because there is none"
Wow! Ricardo is consumed with love for Lou Lou, he's even darker in this book, Ricardo is one bad-ass Mafia boss and a character you can't help but love despite the evil that runs through his blood.
My name is Ricardo DeLuca. There are two things you need to know about me. The first is my heart will always bleed for her.... Only her.
The second is that I'm the son of the devil himself, the most feared mob boss who ever lived.
That is until me.
Blame it on the shame is Ricardo DeLuca and Lou Lou's story and previous books although these are different main characters it is recommended that book 1 & 2 to be read prior to this.
I'm pretty sure the dynamic of our relationship must be the eight wonder of the world, because even when we hate one another.....there's still no-one else that I want more.
Ricardo & Lou Lou have a relationship that makes them toxic together, they are so wrong but so right, one minute it's bitter the next it's sweet and then there's the down right nasty.
Two very passionate and fiery characters.
I loved part one and two but book three with Ricardo and Lou Lou was on a hole new darker level, I loved it. The angst, the danger,the passion, the grit, the unpredictability, the pain, the love.
Blame it on the shame was all that, and it contained everything that has me on the edge, eagerly turning the pages.
Brilliant conclusion and I am definitely looking forward to more from Ashley Jade.
I'm just a man who loves her....craves every single inch of her and I would kill anything in my path to protect her but a hero? that's one thing I'm not..
