Title: Scandalous (Sinners of Saint #3)
Author: L.J. Shen
Publication Date: September 21st 2017
They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be
Review: I told myself that bully romances weren’t for me originally, but I’ve been going back and forth with myself over picking up an L.J. Shen book. What made this book such a wild ride was the fact that Trent and Edie knew they were using each other but continued to play with fire, consequences be damned. It was filled with so much angst and suspense with some parts giving me literal chills from the emotions I was feeling. There were also a few points that almost brought me to tears as well, which is always a sign of a great read.
If you love heavy-hitting romances with a darker alpha-type hero, then make sure you check out this series! There are moments that will make your heart bleed for the characters but there’s also redemption which makes it so satisfying to read. They can be read as standalones but are also interconnected with a spinoff series as well!
