Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to cu

There are great books and then there’s this book—THE BEST BOOK I’VE READ ALL YEAR!
Every now and then a book completely consumes you and leaves you speechless! Broken Knight is that book for me. The story. These characters. I will remember the experience Always!!

L.J. Shen ascends to new heights with this amazing work of art. Broken Knight moved me. It entertained me. I was completely captivated from cover to cover.

Here’s what I loved:
The writing is flawless. I felt as though

My words will not ever live up to the emotional journey that is Broken Knight. I sobbed for a good portion of it, my hands covering my mouth and heart in anguish, and yet, and the end of this story I felt a sense of hope, a sense that life moves on, pieces fall together, and more than anything that life needs to be lived, that forevers aren’t promised, and we must live and grasp every moment we can with the ones we love.

Knight fits his title p

My soul and my heart will not be the same after Broken Knight. There are unforgettable books and there is THIS BOOK. It will leave an indelible mark forever.
The story consumed me to the point that I cannot think, I cannot eat, I cannot focus on anything else, I'm so obsessed with the characters, I'm completely ruined forever. I honestly don't know how I am writing when I feel so drained emotionally and p

There are very few times in a person's life where they come across a book that pulls no punches and is so real, raw and gritty that it literally consumes you where you can't eat or sleep without thinking about it. Broken Knight is that book for me. I can honestly say that after reading it this book has irrevocably changed who I am as a person and how hard I will love and hold my loved ones around me. It is one of a kind and hands down L.J. Shen's greatest story.

I finished Broken Knight last week and I’m still thinking about it. Not only is it the BEST SoS/ASH book, but it’s Leigh’s best book period. And my absolute, hands-down FAVORITE. BK is everything I’ve missed about YA/NA, whatever you want to call it. It’s pure magic.

You know those, can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t even drive without peeking at your kindle at the stoplight type of reads? Those are far and few between for me these days, but I felt that so hard with Broken Knight.

Dear LJ Shen,
How is it that you make your words spring to life from the barren pages and hit my senses with the force of a gale every time?
How is it that you peel off the layers of the banal and reveal the terrible beauty of the core?
I wonder what spirit possesses you every time you pick up your pen, brimming over with confidence or maybe unsure of your own craft, to pour every ounce of what weighed on your mind fluidly into the empty pages waiting in anticipation.

Broken Knight was one of my most anticipated summer reads. I mean, look at that cover. Also, the fact that Knight's parents are my favorite Shen couple, I was just so excited. There were A LOT of 5 star moments in this book. It was angsty, beautifully written, and addicting to read. There were also a few points where I considered DNFing the whole thing. I was that upset and stressed about a few things that happened. Overall, I did love it it for the most part.

Knight and Luna have been best friends their entire lives. The type of relationship they have is more than just your average teen romance, and Broken Knight is more than just your average NA novel. It's the single most emotional and impactful story Leigh has ever written.

'BROKEN KNIGHT' is the second stand alone full length romance novel book in L.J. Shen's 'All Saints High' series. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives'

This book right here was one of my most highly anticipated reads of the century!! From the cover, to the author, to the synopsis, I needed it in my life!! To finally have it in my hands life was put on the back burner until that last page was closed!!

I will say this right now. I have never highlighted so many sentences in my entire life, and TWO:

This is Leigh's best book ever. EVER. Talk about emotions. Talk about I almost flew back to the US just to demand she pay for more margaritas because I was stressed.

I LOVED this book.

I’ve never had such a difficult time writing a review. Not because I’m at a loss or can’t put my thoughts into words. No, that’s not the issue at all. Broken Knight rips EVERYTHING out of me. All of the heartbreak, anguish, love, fear, anger, joy, grief... ALL OF IT. I honestly don’t know where to start without spilling all of my guts. L.J. Shen cranks it up to MAXIMUM within the first few pages and threatens to decimate with each following page. I’m still shaking over the intensity.

I’ll admit

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

I just wanna start by saying no matter how many words I put into this review it will never EVER be enough to perfectly describe just how incredible this book is. My words won’t be able to do it any justice but I’ll try my hardest to come close.

I saw this saying once that went something like, “grab a condom for your heart because I’m about to fuck your feelings!” LOL. I have no idea where I saw that or who it was from but that statement accurately describes L.J. Shen and this book. You need a strong as fuck condom for your heart (in fact, you may wanna double up) because L.J. Shen fucks your feelings hard, raw, and brutally. I mean, I am REELING. I am HEART BROKEN. I am MOVED.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I please introduce you to the best book of the year! L.J. Shen has left me in utter devastation and wonder after the experience that was reading Broken Knight. I wish I could read it for the first time over and over again. This book is beyond worthy of all the buzz surrounding it and more.

Broken Knight is exactly the reason I love to lose myself in romance novels. It is exquisitely written, heart achingly real, overflowing with emotions, all entwined brilliantly into a

Such an awesome book! They have known each other all of their lives. Best friends and neighbors. Everyone expected them to be together. Though something always keeps them apart. The story is heartwarming, tragic, and also hilarious. It has both characters breaking each other’s hearts, and mine broke too every time they hurt each other. Knight Cole and Luna Rexroth are definitely meant to be together.

Both of them have major abandonment issues and insecurities. Luna hasn’t spoken sin

I don't know what to say about this book. I am at a loss for words at how this book, with all its pretty words, affected my life. My soul, really. So, here I am, laying it all out.

This book will forever go down as one of the very few books that I will NEVER forget. This book is right below Making Faces for me, which I read years ago and still cry about. It left beautiful scars that I will look back on and remember every emotion these characters brought out in me. There are se

On my God where do I start?? I started this book with the idea of reading a few pages then going to bed. Ok didn't happen. It's 10:48 am. I guess ill sleep later. I had and still have such weird feelings floating in my head. There is happiness,sadness, anguish, misery, and defeat. I'm reading along when this happens then the unthinkable. Why knight?? Luna oh my god. And the last chapter. Holy shit.
Ohhh this book ......

I always say, that if a book can make me feel...especially many different feelings... it is what I love the most. Now this book definitely made me feel, many many different feelings, but the one that stood out for me was heartbreak.

Now I really did enjoy Luna and Knight's part of this book. Even though the back and forth drove me batshit crazy, and the teenage angst was trying to drown me ...I am an angst-junkie, so I can take it :P

definitely not a perfect read but WORLDS better than the first one in this series

ultimately, i really liked how grief was handled. i liked that things in general were a little messy.

i do think that the will they/won't they felt disjointed and that this book felt like it was plotted in chapters rather than cohesively as one story. i also didn't like the way the HEA was wrapped up or the way substance abuse was handled.

but the family dynamics, handling of grief, and personal development on the par

It's a lie if I didn't admit that I'm conflicted about this book. And I'm having the worst case of mixed feelings EVER, which doesn't help the overall rating.

I'm still feeling way too raw to put my thoughts into concise words.

Just be warned that this book will rip out your heart.

In essence this book broke me. I was tearing up, actually I had tears running down my face for 20% of the book. And I never cry over books.

I hated that I thad to go through this. I hated that it had to come to this. And

It's so hard to put into words how I felt whilst reading this book, it was such a complex and emotional story and one that will stay with me for a very long time. I'm already such a huge fan of this world, having read the original series with all the parents and now getting to do it all again with their children.

Much awaited, much anticipated and ultimately exceeding expectations, this book crossed way above the hype to deliver in spades.
This book once again proves why Shen is the undisputed queen of Angsty Romances with lovable Assholes. Her uninhibited style of writing isn't shy of baring the fangs and her characters' ability to hurt is legendary. They're AlphaHoles for a reason. All her previous heroes have been Demi-Gods with entitled upbringing in Todos Santos. They moved like untouchable legends a
