Three Shocking Stories: Scoundrel, Shameless, Sins & Secrets by Noreen J. Byrne features three stories that are beautifully written. In Scoundrel, Susan is an eighteen-year-old girl with an angelic face, a girl who has lived a very sheltered life in her upper-class home in Chelsea. Now she is deeply in love with Ronny Beltram — the wrong man. Problem is that Ronny is not your ordinary boyfriend material; he is a conman who knows just how to take advantage of vulnerable women. This time Ronny is about to be paid in his own coin. In Sins & Secrets, two teenagers are forced into a life of crime by their stepfather. They are Lia and Charlie, and a rape incident will change their lives irrevocably. Shameless features a beautiful young woman, Sandra, who is obsessed with sex. Can she find the right man to assuage her terrible craving?
This collection is well-written for readers who enjoy mature themes. Shameless is a graphic story with a compelling female protagonist, a woman who is sexually aroused easily and the author does a wonderful job in capturing the psychological implications of her behavior. Noreen J. Byrne is a great storyteller and I adored the characters she creates in the three stories. The descriptive nature of her writing lifts the entertainment potential of these stories, making them captivating and spellbinding. Each tale is written with a compelling premise and readers find themselves wanting to know more about the characters and what happens next to them. Three Shocking Stories: Scoundrel, Shameless, Sins & Secrets is a great offering for readers who enjoy thrillers. It features fully drawn characters, exquisite writing, and strong plot points.
