[Review] Angry God by L.J. Shen

Title: Angry God (All Saints High #3)
Author: L.J. Shen
Publication Date: February 15th 2020

Vaughn Spencer.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.
His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.
But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.

A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.
They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.
divider_line (1)Review: After reading Vicious, I was definitely expecting a darker read for his son Vaughn, but I think this one takes the cake! It’s a story of two tortured artists with a past and a secret that makes them enemies. Vaughn and Lenny are constantly at each other’s throats (there is actually a bit of blood play in this book which made me slightly uncomfortable) and they were taking no prisoners. This book actually deals with some pretty heavy topics as well including sexual and emotional abuse. It’s probably the darkest story I’ve read from L.J. Shen yet and while there were some parts that made me cringe (*cough*blood play*cough*) I loved Lenny and Vaughn.
