“If all you can do is crawl, start crawling. Soon, you’ll be able to stand. First, just
S’renaty James lives a privileged life most her age only dream of living. She is
beautiful and popular with her entire life ahead of her. Life could not get any
Until her entire life shifts, crashing around her…
Bound by devastation, persecuted by the ones she used to call ‘friends’, haunted
by disturbing nightmares, and filled with self-blame, she vows to overcome.
Stefan is everything S’renaty swears to avoid. He is carefree and charismatic. He is
primitive, complicated and a total badass. He makes her melt like fine chocolate
under a hot summer’s sun the first time their eyes meet. There is something
about him, and she makes it her mission to find out.
When he meets S’renaty James, he is not prepared for what comes over him
because for the first time ever, a girl leaves him breathless. Now, his primary
responsibility is to keep her safe. He will do anything to protect her. Even lie…
Stefan is the one person she has trusted with her heart. After keeping an
unforgivable secret, he could be the one to shatter it to pieces. In fact, he may
even destroy her beyond repair. Will she overcome and forgive, letting go of the
pain, guilt and shame? Or this time, will she be stronger than the hardest lesson
of her life — and, become totally ShameLess?
About this author:
Mel Ballew resides in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and daughter, along
with their two adorable cats.
An avid reader, she has always had an equal passion for writing and has written
her entire life, to date. Her mother initially birthed, inspired, and encouraged
these loves. The two often discussed writing together but unfortunately, that
dream never came to fruition.
Years later, this happened, that happened—life happened.
She stepped away from writing to place more focus on being wife and a full-time
mom. Today, she would not have changed a thing. The day her daughter was born
became the first day she realized a significant rhythm to her heart was also born.
Her daughter, now preparing to go off to college, has grown into a beautiful and
responsible young adult.
A twisted turn of events in September 2009 left Mel unable to work outside of
the home. Forced to consider other options, and while embracing a therapeutic
approach of transcribing all of the challenges facing her, post-accident, she
returned to journaling. Once again, the writer within her has been re-birthed—
awakened from slumber.
Mel is a hopeless romantic. Blessed, she has her very own soul mate, which she
calls husband, best friend, and lover.
She is a simple country gal, with a profound love of true simplicity. She is just
as hopeless in her love of nature and regards many of her writing aspirations to
appreciating its beauty, although every single story is birthed from her dreams.
Sometimes, in life, simply enjoying a chilled glass of sangria on a warm summer’s
eve or indulging in her love of chocolate and peanut butter is an expression of
enjoying such simplicity. For her, these moments are truly d’vine.
