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 unavailab

Scandalous is complex, emotionally riveting, and an intricately plotted work of art. It's thought-provoking and guaranteed to steal your heart. I was in tears at the end. #BestEpilogueAward. I always expect the unexpected with the Hotholes and Trent did not disappoint.

OMG this book was RAW and EMOTIONAL and gutted me!!! I was falling fast and deep for Trent - and he might just be my newest obsession.

But besides having one gorgeous hunk of a man, SCANDALOUS really lived up to its name!!

It was SCANDALOUS, TANTALIZING and PANTY DROPPING HOT, in the most exhilarating way. I was so not prepared for Trent and Edie. There was no way I could have imagined how explosive this couple would be. From the very first moment they met the world s

Scandalous is the third book in Shen’s Sinners of Saint series and can be read as a stand-alone, though I would recommend reading the first few books before this! You don’t want to miss out on the greatness of Vicious and Dean’s books!
I wanted what was forbidden, and wrong, and fucking crazy. I wanted my partner’s daughter, who was nearly half my age.
Lovers of forbidden romance… this is the book in the series for you! Not only were these two ‘forbidden’ because Trent and Evie’s

The Sinners of Saint is my crack, and LJ Shen, my dealer. The woman writes some of the most addicting and sizzling enemies to lovers romances I've ever read. Trent Rexroth has always seemed like the most tame of the HotHoles, when compared to Vicious's vicious streak and Dean's shenanigans. If you think Trent was the nice one of the bunch, think again. You know what they say about those quiet ones, don't you?

To be 100% honest with everyone, I had a secret crush on Trent since I read Vicious, Book 1. He seemed so sexy. When he got caught up with an oops baby, I knew his story was going to be a good one. Plus, Trent was token. The token’s story is always a good one, one like no one else’s. Trent never spoke much, but when he did he had a point to make. All of this made me want his story.

I suspect Amazon whisper synced a different book to my Kindle otherwise this book sure as hell doesn't even come close to being a 2 star, much less one deserving of the array of glowing 5 stars.

Just putting that out there.

Although the gang of sinners are supposedly successful businessmen in their 30s they, however, inevitably come across as petulant and at times just plain stupid, with no distinguishable character growth or maturity. I find the whole lot of them crass and insufferable and its

How do I write up a review that does justice to this book? Answer is, I can't!!

‘SCANDALOUS:’ is the third book within the ‘Sinner of Saint’ series by L.J. Shen. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ Edie is eighteen, Trent is thirty-three. Their story is not perfect.

The first time Trent had noticed Edie Van Der Zee was at a barbecue celebrating Dean’s son’s birthday, the second time he’d laid eyes on her was when he caught her doing a five fingered discount at the promenade where the rich freque

“I should stay away from you, but I want you too fucking much. And when it’s all over, when all that’s left of us is sweaty flesh, and shattered minds and torn hearts, you will remember me as the man who made you cry, and I’ll remember you as the girl I had to break to stay afloat”.

I’ve always known of the saying “Save the best for last” and up until this very moment, I can honestly say without a doubt that this author did this quote justice. She d

“She’s a maze with no escape. An ethereal, steady pulse. She’s there, but just barely. I love her so much I sometimes hate her. And it terrifies me, because deep down, I know what she is. An unsolvable puzzle. And I know who I am. The idiot who would try to fix her. At any cost.” 7 likes
