Tour Post: Shameless


by Nina Lemay

Release Date: August 18th 2014

Girls like me don’t get happy endings.
I know what I am. At worst a cliché, at best a cautionary tale. I put an international border between me and my past, only to wind up working in a low-end titty bar. Even my excuse is as lame as it gets: I’m paying for college, getting my art degree from Montreal’s most prestigious school. Although some days it becomes confusing: am I just a student who moonlights as a stripper, or a stripper who masquerades as a student?
But the inevitable happens and my two lives collide. And now there’s one other person who knows both the quiet, antisocial Hannah and the sensual, shameless Alicia. One person who keeps my secret.
He’s beautiful, he’s sophisticated. He comes from the other side of life, the one where I’m not wanted or accepted. But he calls me la petite Américaine, and his hot, hot hands on my skin promise me things I long ago gave up on.
The problem? He teaches my Classic Photography class.
This is a standalone novel, no series, no cliffhanger.

About the Author

Nina Lemay is a YA writer by day and author of sinfully twisted New Adult…well, also by day. She loves all things dark and edgy and never tires of tormenting her characters. While Nina is a fan of all things scary, Gothic, and fantastic, she doesn’t shy away from a gritty contemporary romance when the muse strikes. She lives in Montreal, a city that never fails to inspire, with her partner and her dog.

My Perfect Cast

by Nina Lemay

For Hannah, I’d go with Rooney Mara. Without the goth makeup! Wow, I never thought I’d say these words. She has that natural look, not Hollywood cookie cutter cutie but very unique. She has thin lips and small features and somehow that only makes her more memorable. Kind of the way I see Hannah—not a classical beauty, but certainly a face that you remember.

For Emmanuel, since he’s Quebecois, I’ll go with Quebecois actor Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge. (It’s pure coincidence that we share part of a last name! Not like I want to have his babies or anything. That’s ridiculous.) He has that scruffy look about him and really nice eyes. Who can resist a cute, scruffy guy with nice eyes and a sexy-ass French accent? No one, that’s who.

For Maryse, it’s hands down Lyndsay Gort. She’s a sassy blonde who tells it like it is and never apologizes for herself. She speaks her mind and doesn’t take s*** from anyone. Maryse and Hannah become closer as the book progresses, Hannah starts to “borrow” some of her unapologetic self-confidence and learns to own it.

For Audrey, the perfect choice is Leighton Meester. I’ll always associate her with bitchy, scheming rich girl Blair Waldorf, a really sweet face hiding a less-than-sweet personality.
