I have no shame in saying I loved this collection!
Filled with a huge variety of great stories all addressing the theme—overcoming some form of shame—Shameless Behavior
does an incredible job of beautifully and thoughtfully tackling some heavy issues. My personal favorite was "Cutter," by Beth Wyatt, a tale about a woman who cuts herself but experiences a gorgeous reawakening with a fighter from a nearby gym. While the writing is exquisite, the story brilliantly captures all the hurt both these characters have experienced and molds it into something hot and transformative. I couldn't get enough of this one! Another favorite was "Hunger" by Zoe More for the unique concept and delicious details—so rich and dark, and a departure from the rest of the collection. Fabulous!
There were plenty of other gems in the anthology, and a few of them were "Compassion's Seed" by Lana Fox, a clever tale of religious awakening; "Doll-Faced Demons" by Laila Blake, as a playful tale of love and rebirth; "Echo Chamber" by Sommer Marsden, full of sweetness and release; and finally, "Wet," by Kyoko Church, which ended the book with a powerful bang. In truth, all the stories were delightful, making this another perfect blend of tales from editors Lana Fox and Angela Tavares.
