Publisher's Summary

Shame. It wounds us. It damages us. Or, for the few poor souls out there like me...it defines us. I'm the son of the devil himself - the most feared mob boss who ever lived. I was cursed from the moment I took my first breath. I hate him...and I never wanted to become him. And I sure as hell never, ever, wanted anything of his.

Until her.

My name is Ricardo DeLuca. There are two things you need to know about me. The first is that I'm in love with the girl who belongs to my father. The second is that it turns out I am my father's son after all.

My name is Lou-Lou, and you probably think I'm a bitch. You would be right - because I am. You think you know all there is to know about me because of the man I belong to. What you don't know is my past, because I'll never tell you. What you don't know is my shame. Because if you did, you'd be worse off than dead. You'd be broken.

There are two sides to every story.... This is ours.

Warning: Due to strong language, some violence, explicit sexual content, and some dark elements, this audiobook is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Trigger Warning: This series contains elements of emotional, sexual, and physical cruelty. Any listeners with sensitivity to the above topics should proceed with caution and at their own risk.

Author's Note: This is part one of a three book series (Blame It on the Shame: Lou-Lou and Ricardo's story). However, in order to truly enjoy Lou-Lou and Ricardo's story, it is advised you hear Blame It on the Pain first.

Also, please be advised that part one in this series (featuring a different couple) takes place before any of the events in Blame It on the Pain do. It is considered a prequel.

This is a full-length novel: 67,000 words.

    Story
    "This was Everything plus more. "

    I loved this book so much. It captured me from the beginning and held onto my attention throughout it. Dorian made me feel like it was real. His accent and all.

    A boy who had a rough childhood with a mother who never wanted him, admittin he was a mistake due to a unforseen circumstance. a father who didn't claim him until his early teen years, but wants him to follow in his footsteps as a Mob Boss.

    A girl who abused (seems like the biggest understatement ever) by her father. Gets a chance to get away, but runs into nobody else bit the Mob Boss himself. Who saves her? if that's what you call it. Being the only man to care for her she confuses in love with being loved in my opinion. Awesome read.

    "Intriguing story about life with the mob"
    What made the experience of listening to Blame It on the Shame the most enjoyable?

    Dorian’s voice is superb for the male POV but not really for the female roles.

    The story pulls at your heart strings and makes you really wonder if that’s how it is for real.

    Lou-Lou or Luciana has had a very hard life and feels afraid to run away from her situation which seems to get worse until she starts to let Ricardo in. You really feel sorry for her life, but yet at times why doesn’t she reach out to Ricardo and fully let him in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blame It on the Shame?

    The night when Ricardo takes Lou-Lou to the field of dandelions just waiting for dreams to be wished upon for her birthday.


    Which character – as performed by Dorian Bane – was your favorite?

    Ricardo Deluca


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Nope, too emotional for one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    Can’t wait to see want happens to all the characters introduced in this book.

    Story
    "Dark and Torturous"

    A no holds barred Mafia audiobook that completely blew me away. And when I saw no holds barred, I mean it. There are triggers firing from all directions, so don’t get all puffy about it. But if you don’t mind, go all in because it’s an awesome story. An awesome story that you won’t be able to shut off.

    It is told though dual POV but only a single narrator and that is where the only mishap lies. I feel the narration could benefit so much from a female narrator but Dorian Bane really does give it his all and pulls off such a good mafia... it is so hard to be mad about anything else.

    From the straight up emotion to the cut throat Mafia lifestyle and the sex and blood and gore. It was perfect. Very true to what I would imagine.
