I breathe for Vaughn Spencer! This story and these characters have remained in my heart and mind months after reading. The story is breathtaking!

I’d been waiting for his story since his character was first mentioned and he is everything I expected and more! This story consumed me. I’m pretty sure I read it in record time. I could not put it down!

Here’s what I loved:

My heart was broken and pieced back together while flipping these pages. I experienced the full range of emotions. I cried like a

ANGRY GOD IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF ALL TIME, it got so deep in my soul, reached the most hidden places in my heart and ruined me forever, I still feel it in every fiber of my being. The plot is captivating, gritty, dark, so intense,with such deep anguish that leaves you breathless, wow, I couldn't put it down.

The characters are UNIQUE! My Vaughn is..., I have no words, his personality fascinates me, a character so complex as I have never read another hero before, his

OMGGGG!! LJ Shen just dropped her first explosive read in 2020 in the form of Angry God and Vaughn Spencer and she took ZERO prisoners. Good Lord this story was EVERYTHING!!! This author has once again delivered a MAGNIFICENT read that has left me speechless, in awe and honestly heartbroken that it's over. Angry God is epic and solidified itself as Leigh Shen's BEST READ EVER!

After reading the first two books in the All Saints High series you might think you know who Vaughn Spencer is but

Hauntingly Beautiful. Completely Unexpected. Vaughn crept up on me, and broke me down. He owns my heart, and I never want it back.

Vaughn Spencer is more than I ever expected. I obviously expected some Vicious elements, he is his father’s son after all, based on his behavior in the previous books, but I didn’t expect the softer parts, the broken parts. Based on the title, readers know there is something that has affected Vaughn in a

Forget best book of 2020. Angry God is an all-time best novel. This is by far LJ Shen’s greatest work yet!

I want to start by saying Vicious by LJ Shen left a lasting impression on the romance community for a reason. That book hit us all with an unexpected impact we never saw coming. The second generation is no different.

Enter Vaughn Spencer.

We’ve heard from Daria and Knight and Luna. LJ left us hanging a bit longer for Vaughn because that wait is necessary. I wasn’t prepared. Nothing could

We were an unfinished business, personal and always walking the tight rope between love and hate.

Let's talk about angst for a hot second here. Because this book? Mother. Of. All. Angst. Would you expect anything less from any kid of Vicious?

This book. This book was EVERYTHING. It's not for the faint of heart. It was gritty, painful, and downright captivating. It was deliciously angsty and rip your hair out frustrating. It was all of the things. Full of depth and emotion, layered with

LJ... please get better beta readers. please put out fewer books per year. please just... stop writing stupid shit? PLEASE??? the reviews for this from people i trust were pretty scathing, and that's all the motivation i need to just stay away from this.

knowing myself, i might one day pick it up out of curiosity but i doubt it'll be an enjoyable experience.

WOW WOW WOW!! LJ Shen starts 2020 with a bang!!
Vaughn and Lenora owned music heart from the first few pages and to say that I did not want their story to end is an understatement. The author delivers the last book in a series that is undeniably one of the best I have ever read, with characters that are unforgettable.

Angry God is a straight up powerful read, managing to be bitterly funny , profoundly tragic and raw, as well as giving us great insight into art and music.

A thought provoking story that will stay not only in my heart, but the hearts of those who encounter it as well.

LJ Shen outdid herself completely with this conclusion of Todos Santos world.

Vaughn Spencer was not only vicious and ruthless, he was savage and completely deranged.

His story wasn’t what I was expecting yet was everything and so much more.

To say that my relationship with L. J. Shen's books is tumultuous would be sort of an understatement. I'm a huge fan of her early works and she has written few of my favorite books ever. Namely, Bane and The Kiss Thief. She is a superb writer, one of the best in the indie community and that's just a fact. So it saddens & disappoints me to see the direction her plots and stories have taken this last year.

We all are different as readers: some things work for others, some don't.

This book. THIS BOOK. I don't think I could have prepared myself for this rollercoaster ride of emotions even if I tried. Every time I think LJ Shen has written my favourite book by her, tops it with the next one. Angry God has all the angst, the emotion and incredible writing that I've come to expect and love from LJ. This story pushes boundaries, it broke my damn heart, it made me fall in love with Vicious all over again. The heroine is badass, strong and the perfect pairing for this broken, ...more

Leigh has woven a delicate web of destruction with Angry God. The artistry that Leigh is gifted with blows me away every single time, but Angry God was a whole new dimension. Vaughn imprinted his soul into mine and I will take him with me forever. I love how all of Leigh’s characters are complex, all while she continues to deliver us with stories that break the surface of what we expect while reading. She blows me away every single time with her talent. With each book of hers, I say that it’s ...more

'ANGRY GOD' is the third full length romance book in L.J. Shen's 'All Saints High' series. Mainly spoken in Dual Perspective.

Angry God was one of my most highly anticipated, my most stalked after book of 2020 and it was everything I could’ve wished for! After encountering Vaughn Spencer in previous books, where his arrogant attitude was all up in our grills we all couldn't wait to get our hands on his book!! And he didn't disappoint us!!

I was so excited to read Angry God. I mean, this is Vaughn, Viscous and Emilia's son we're talking about. Getting to know him in the first two books of this series made me even more excited. While I enjoyed the last 25-30% so much, the first/middle was kind of a mess for me, unfortunately.

Vaughn Spencer is quiet and a bit unusual for a high school senior. He' the only child of Viscous and Emilia and I've been super intrigued by him. Lenora is Poppy's sister and she and Vaughn have

I wish I could say this was everything that I'd hoped Vaughn's book would be, but it was a disappointment more than anything. I genuinely enjoyed the first two books in the All Saints High series, despite not really being into romances set in high school anymore, but I put my trust in LJ Shen knowing she could deliver fantastic writing, characters, angst, and steam. While PR and BK had all of that, Angry God in comparison fell flat. I'd been so hyped from the Vaughn/Lenny scenes we got in BK– ...more

"The Magic Is Gone"
Well... I guess that I woke up today and decided that I needed to have my heart ripped out of my chest.

“I’d never met a god who bled so often.”

Angry God is an emotional read. A book that starts like your classic bully high school romance, but that becomes something so much bigger is nothing short of epic. Truly a monumental conclusion to the Sinners of Saint/All Saints High Series, but also an intense ride of anger, fear, revenge, love, and redemption.

“Every painful goodbye starts with a wonderful hello.”

Take everything you’ve heard about this book, all your expectations, and toss them out. This book is going to surpass all your wildest hopes and dreams. It’s angsty yet sickeningly sweet, it’s dark but will still fill you with light, it will make you cry and smile on the same page.

Honestly, It's time for LJ to replace her beta readers she can do better than this. PR, BK and AG has the same pattern of epilogue marriage proposal , knocked up heroine , settle down at an early age. Sorry , but Vaughn and Lenny has no chemistry at all. Why did Emilia and Melody become shitty parents?

Vaughn and Lenora have the most unsanitary sex life i've ever read.

so, yeah. this was just meh for me and after reading everything, i really think Pretty Reckless is my favorite just because no one dies there and i actually liked the development even tho the drama was straight out of a 2000 teen rom-com movie (aka Mean Girls).

alright, first lets get on with
what i liked:

to be honest, reading Vicious' inner monologue about how much he loves Emilia is the ONE thing i was

3,5 stars

I might be the only one to say this but this is my least favorite in the series.I liked some parts of the story but some others not so much.

It started really well and I enjoyed a lot of the story my main problem was the characters. I couldn’t connect 100% with them and Vaughn wasn’t for me.He wasn't what I expected and the story was a little bit slow.

I’m sure everyone is going to love it more! I’m just excited to read another book from Leigh Shen!

This is a hard one to rate for me... There were definitely parts where I would go for 5 stars, but also plenty of parts where I would give 2... So I guess I will go with 3,5 stars.

Even though I really enjoyed reading this one, I also found it a bit OTT. So much was thrown in, and I felt it took away from the romance. There wasn't a whole lot of steam in this one but what was there could be described as quite "kinky".

I do advise people with triggers to read some full reviews with spoilers

Vaughn has intrigued me since he was first brought into this series. So closed off and angry and beautiful!

Vaughn Spencer might of just been the man to ruin me forever, this beautiful broken man just captured my heart completely with his entire being and I’ll never love another as much as I do him.

When I went into this book never did I expect to get out of it what I did. The storyline was so much more than I ever expected. It’s hard, it’s dark, 100% captivating and insanely intense everything
I wish I could get the girl. Because, Len, you are her. You are that girl. My safe place. My asymmetric happiness. My Edgar Allan Poe poem. You are my Smiths, and my favorite fantasy book, my brownie, and summer vacations in lush places. There will never be anyone else like you. And that’s exactly why you deserve someone better than me. Love, Vaughn

We were an unfinished business, personal and always walking the tightrope between love and hate. But we were always something, Len. We will always be something.

I have to admit, Vaughn has not been my favorite character in the All Saints High series. He’s always been a little too moody and aloof for my liking, and I was hoping that he’d get paired up with someone who was his complete opposite. Lenora wasn’t my first choice for his love

We knew that the most highly anticipated book of 2020 was going to stop us in our track and pray for willpower so we can savor this read. The title alone has this powerful feel to it, the author's words no matter they type of story, feels like a long time friend that is sharing a story just for you.

Vaugn Spencer lives by his own rules and if you don’t like it, kindly see yourself out. He’s a rule breaker, leader in his own right, and he genuinely doesn’t give a f*ck what you think about him or
