[Review] The Devil Wears Black by L.J. Shen


Title: The Devil Wears Black
Author: L.J. Shen
Release Date: March 9 ,2021

From USA Today bestselling author L. J. Shen comes a second-chance romance about love, loss, finding yourself, and getting lost in the right person.

Maddie Goldbloom stitched up a plan to ensure everything in her life was perfect—from a career in fashion to a chic NYC apartment to a pediatrician boyfriend.

When her ex, Chase Black, storms back into her life with an outrageous request, her immediate reaction is to refuse him. But he only wants to fulfill his father’s last wish. So even though he’s the man who broke her heart, playing his fiancée shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means she gets to watch the arrogant devil squirm a bit.

What ensues is a chain of events that detonates Maddie’s life—and when Chase’s walls come down, they both are forced to face reality.

They say keep your enemies close. But what if your enemy is also the man you love?
divider_line (1)Review: If you’re looking for a lighter romance and you love L.J. Shen, you need to check this one out! It has the second chance, fake relationship and hate to love tropes if you’re into those kind of things like me. Can I just say the first page hooked me with the Grey’s Anatomy reference? This book also serves some rom com greatness which made me think of The Proposal (fake engagement story) and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (love plant). I kept cackling because Mad was so cutthroat when it came to Chase begging her to be his fake fiancée. Their banter was so delightful! I do kind of wish that Chase was a bit more like the moniker (devil) that Maddie gives him and his POV was giving me mixed signals at some points. It’s like he wanted to be bad but couldn’t? If you’re looking for laughs, drunken shenanigans, some angst, flashback moments, sexy texts, and loads of family drama then pick this one up!
