Summary

Roly Martinez checklist: EpiPens, burn ointment, and condoms. You gotta come prepared for hate sex.

Heath has every reason to hate me, and that only serves to fuel our explosive chemistry. Now that we live in the same city again, all I want to do is show this sexy bear of a man that I’m not the jerk he once knew. My career as a US Navy SEAL changed the course of my life, and I'm desperate for him to see the new me.

Unfortunately, my reconciliation efforts so far have ended in hospitalization, second-degree burns, and a broken towel rack. 

Not my finest work.

Of course, if he finds out the details of the military operation that forever changed me, it might be game over.

I mean...can he forgive me if I can’t even forgive myself?

Shameless is post-military enemies-to-lovers MM romance set in a gym for combat vets. It features muscled twinks, beautifully bellied bears, and a four-year-old with a lisp. 

Note: This book depicts military violence, but the HEA is guaranteed. 

This is the third book in the Wrecked series. Several characters, including Roly, first appear in Scout and the Lavender Girl.

As amazing as expected

I read this series awhile back and hearing it performed by the incredibly talented John Solo is absolute perfection. Roly and Heath give us such honesty, heat and redemption that you can’t help but fall in love with both of them. One of my favorite series of all time - love it so much!

Love Roly

Ask me to rank my favourite Kelly Fox reads and you’d find this in my top three. Again John solo brought new feelings with his reading and again I was left with tears in my eyes wanting to cuddle Roly. That sweet sweet man. After an awful experience in the military, Roly promises to change his ways and bless his heart he did. However by trying to make things right with Heath things don’t always go to plan. This provides plenty of laughs.
Having read the two books before this, you see Roly but you don’t SEE Roly. The Roly underneath his helpful, funny, bear killer act. The vulnerable still healing Roly, the Roly so in love with his og bear crush that he’d do anything for him. This side is what made me fall hard for Him. Roly and Heath are definitely in my top ten all time favourite couples.

Kelly hit me in the feels with Rolys story and this was the book that gave her favourite author status. Roly and the wreaked crew will have a place in my heart forever.

Solo brings Fox’s characters to life

I am definitely a Kelly Fox fan and I adored the Wrecked series when it came out in print. But the audio is even better. John Solo captures the essences of Heath and Roly (& Heath’s girls) and makes the story even more vibrant.

Roly and Heath’s enemies-to-lovers story is sweet and hot and satisfying and funny. The girls and the dogs round out their blended family amazingly.

With lots of drop-ins by other series faves, this instalment also serves to create a beautiful jumping off point for the spin-off series Wrecked: Guardians.

Gah!

Story: Roly's story was one I could not wait for! He was a really intriguing character for me and his story did not disappoint! So many feels and such an emotional roller coaster! Tears were flowing, laughs were laughed and I loved every second!
Narration: I cannot imagine a better fit for this series and book than John Solo!

A fantastic audio experience

The story :

This is a wonderfully narrated enemies to lovers story with two really likeable MCs. Roly and Heath knew each other in High School and they were far from friends. So much so that Heath still carries a grudge against Roly all these years later.
Roly is a ex Navy SEAL who suffered a life altering incident and is haunted by how his words have hurt people in the past.
There’s definitely chemistry between them but Heath really doesn’t want there to be. The spark is fuelled by hate and when it ignites the heat definitely rises.
When you include the comedy of errors when Roly attempts to make things right between them, the supportive but meddlesome friends, lots of feels and Heath finally seeing the real Roly, you are left with a romantic HEA and a very enjoyable listen.

The narration:

John Solo once again shines when narrating this series, he really fits the characters and makes them come alive. Each characters individual tone and cadence is differentiated throughout the whole book and John Solo’s performance makes for an wonderful listening experience.

Book almost a DNF to a fave - audio perfection

I hit 57% in this book and really wanted to DNF it, but had loved the first two books in the series so much and so decided to give the author the benefit of the doubt and finish it. Boy am I happy I did. First, let's talk about the DNF response. 1) I am not a fan of screwball comedy, and there was way too much of that for me early in the book. 2) For that first 57%, we are TOLD Roly is a changed man and he SAYS he is, but we don't SEE that on the page in the remarks he makes and the way he behaves that indicate he is still incredibly self-centered and thinks he is irresistable. 3) If you were that kid who didn't fit in in high school and were bullied because of it, it seemed completely unrealistic that Heath, who is still carrying around pain from that and has a daughter who is now being bullied for the same reason, would be so attracted to the person who bullied him.

Now, for what I loved in that first part. Evie. If you liked this woman in her own book and in the first two volumes of this series, you are going to love her here. She is Roly's truth teller and she pulls no punches. The faint hope that she might actually finally get through was the reason I kept going.

So, what happened after that first part that changed DNF to wow? Something happens with the group of men and women we have come to love in the first books vis a vis Roly and it finally became clear to me exactly why he was behaving the way he was. I realized I had been expecting one of those "love solves everything quickly" outcomes and that was no way going to be appropriate for him. My whole perspective on the relationship between Heath and Roly changed and watching them work through some really dark stuff as the book headed toward its end was amazing. Finally, I believed that these two would be good for each other and for Heath's girls.

Now for the performance. John Solo perfectly captured for me in his voice the parts of Roly's character the grated on me before the change. That's who Roly is there but knowing what was coming made the listening very interesting. You could hear Heath's pain and feel the raw emotions as he and Roly worked through the hard stuff. Thank you John Solo for my Evie here! She is divine!

LOVED!

John Solo does an amazing job of narrating Shameless.
Shameless is the ultimate enemies to lovers story. Roly and Heath have a long time history of negativity. Can they get past that and learn who they are today? I enjoyed the journey these two took to their HEA. You will cry, smile, swoon and so much more reading this story.
This is a great addition to the Wrecked series.

Yes yes and more yes

Roly and Heath are my go to reread and I now know this audio will be in rotation as well! The narrator was able to hit the funny and the serious moments on point and I appreciate when that happens. Sometime with beloved characters I have an idea in my head that I can’t shake when the audio comes out but in this case I was still able to appreciate the audio. Kelly Fox is an amazing wordsmith, I’m pretty obsessed with the series.

Perfect passion

I love Roly and all that he has going on. He and Heath have a rocky road ahead of them due to the one behind them.

I think this is a wonderful story with great characters. The narration by John Solo definitely does the book justice.

Shameless

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

This whole series is awesome and so is Wrecked: Guardians.

There’s so many feels in this one.

Highly recommend.

You won’t be disappointed.

John does a wonderful job as always.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and am voluntarily leaving a review. I read the book previously in KU as well.

ᗴᗰOTᎥOᑎᗩᒪ, ᖴᑌᑎᑎY, ᗷᗴᗩᑌTᎥᖴᑌᒪ

A poignant enemies-to-lovers type of story dealing with past hurt and trauma, current anxiety and pain, and the personal growth that can come from and through both.

Beautifully narrated by John Solo, my only complaint is the chapter headings; that soft, almost apologetic whispery voice just doesn’t fit the characters. It was great for book 2, but I wasn’t expecting and didn’t appreciate it in book 3.

Roly, bear killer!!! 🐻

Book 3 in the Wrecked series.

This series revolves around the Wrecked gym and the combat vets that work out there.

This book is about:

Roly - ex Navy SEAL, high school cheerleader, 5 and a half foot ball on energy, nicknamed Bear Killer. His personality is bigger than his body. He's always been the life of the party. He only dates bears due to a confrontation he had in Iraq, he only feels safe with large men.

Heath - Scout's and Jean-Pierre's business manager, nicknamed Heavy, by Roly in high school, and then Sexy Papa Bear, as adults. Heath has recently relocated to Austin due to his ex-wife's job, so that he can be near her and their three girls.

For years Heath has struggled with self esteem issues due to bullying in high school, due to his weight, which was exacerbated by Roly.

This story is about opening old wounds then the slow process of healing them and moving on, along with sexy times.

John Solo brought this story to life. The voices he used for each of the characters were spot on. There was the one glaring mispronunciation of Tony Chachere's seasoning, but if you aren't from down south you probably wouldn't know any better. I'll give him that one 😉, it made me smile.

Enemies to lovers, hurt/comfort, hate sex, mental health issues

Fantastic!

War hero Roly’s life is about to come to a serious change. His coping mechanisms aren’t going to work anymore- he can’t just outrun the past. Enter Heath- the trigger that sets off a chain of events bound to make Roly a better man. This romance starts out with an enemies to lovers kind of vibe, but it is so much more. Written with such depth and honesty, Fox treats PTSD with such dignity and respect but doesn’t bog the reader down by making it the sole focus. The very complicated, yet amazing, relationship growing between Roly and Heath along with the Wrecked family make this story beautiful. John Solo narrates well, but I’ve read this story so many times and in my head Roly has a Hispanic accent. He does not in the audio version :(
