What readers are saying about Shameless

Heartfelt, sexy, and so much steam. Lex’s writing swept me up completely! You don’t want to miss out on Katherine and Brady’s story! – Krista Ritchie, NYT & USA Today bestselling author of the Addicted series

Ten stars… So tightly-written, so beautiful, so sexy, so real. Amazing, utterly amazing book. – Leslie McAdam, author of the Giving You series

Swoons—good grief you guys, the swoons! First of all, big bad tatted biker dude…with a baby? Hold on to your ovaries, ladies. – Give Me Books

The emotion in this book is so raw and real it will have you on the brink of tears, smiling, grinning, turning red, then ripping your insides out with a spoon… It’s gut-wrenching but flawless… – Smut Bags

Pardon the pun but I’m shameless in my adoration for this book. Lex Martin delivers a romance with great heart, soul and steam, it was truly my delight to read. – ElizaReadALot

Lex can write steam hotter than a full-day spent in a sauna. Seriously, Brady and Katherine’s chemistry could probably burn down a city — they are that intense. An A++ read. I wholly recommend you picking up this beautiful yet poignant story about love, life, regrets and the importance of finding the people you call home. – Book Baristas

So please help me fight the fuckers at FB by doing the following:

1. Enter the giveaway by clicking below. It’s a RC link. (I don’t want to say the full name in case FB can detect it. Call me paranoid… I am at this point.)

And I suppose this is also a good time to tell you that my next book, SHAMELESS, will be out this spring! *twirls* It’s Brady’s story, and it takes place in Texas. (You might remember him from Finding Dandelion. He’s the hot guy who gave Dani her tattoo.) As always, SHAMELESS is a complete standalone. I’ll have more details soon.

Happy holidays, lovelies. xoxo

Have you all read Whitney Barbetti’s HE FOUND ME yet? It’s ***FREE*** through 2/5! It’s a new adult romantic suspense about Andra, a seventeen-year-old runaway who finds love when she least expects it.
HFM free 2

When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare.

But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the façade that was Andra Walker.

I was content with my simple little life.

Until I met Julian.

And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.


****He Found Me is the first installment in a two-part series. He Saved Me, the sequel, is available on Amazon.****

My friend Jules Barnard just released TRUE BLUE, the third book in her Blue Series. I’ve loved every one of these. For a limited time, you can grab the first book for free! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for her awesome giveaway, which includes signed copies of both of my books.


true blue teaser

“True Blue also touches on the theme of unconditional love and the fact that no matter what, family doesn’t always have to be blood relatives.” 

– The Phantom Paragrapher (

“This story of Mira and Tyler is one filled with misunderstandings, heartbreak and passionate love. I thought the characters were well defined, and the book flowed through the plotline seamlessly. A sprinkling of danger, powerful punches of lust were what held my interest throughout the book. ”

TRUE BLUE Synopsis:true blue

Mira Frasier has worked hard to pull herself out of the darkness of her Tahoe reservation childhood, but rough beginnings shape a person in all the wrong ways. Mira gets mixed up with shady people while trying to bail out her destitute mother—and now Mira’s life is in danger.

Tyler Morgan grew up a star athlete and scholar, but a tragedy he hasn’t dealt with has him regrouping in his home town of South Lake Tahoe. The last person he expects to see is Mira, the girl he lost his virginity to in high school, and the only woman who ever took a piece of his heart. He’d rather live in a tent than do what his sister asks and stay with Mira while they figure out how to keep her safe from the men who attacked her.

To ensure Mira remains in his past where she belongs, Tyler agrees to look out for her temporarily until she’s safe enough to move out on her own. And if he has to push that process along by snooping around and figuring out what she’s hiding, he’ll do that too. Only, Mira is still beautiful, and she’s feisty as hell, and she has all his attention—just like she did six years before.

Mira is driving Tyler crazy, the tension between them off the charts while they’re trapped under the same roof. Something is going to crack. Will it be Mira’s last hold on a haunted life, or Tyler’s self-control around the one girl he’s never been able to get over?

Lighter by Gia Riley

New Adult Romance

Lighter - Gia Riley - coming soon no cover imageWhat do you do when you can’t save the one you love?

Sophie can’t survive without control. Growing up with an alcoholic father, she craves the discipline of gymnastics. Feeling lost on a brand new college campus, she lets loose for the first time in her life. But with freedom comes consequences. Is one night everything she hopes? Or will she become her own worst nightmare?

Kipton’s one year away from graduation. He’s never thought beyond a one night stand until meeting his sister’s new roommate. Finally setting his sights on the girl he can’t resist, he’s more determined than ever when she won’t give in to his persuasions.
