REVIEW: Bane by L.J. Shen

Mel's thoughts...

Dang !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That LJ Shen can write a book and then some. Gritty, Passionate, and let's just give her an award for the male characters she seems to bring to life that are truly larger than life. It started with Vicious don't even get me started with him and now Bane. Oh fuck where to begin with Bane. Unapologetic, cocky, ambitious, just......... unhhhhhhhhhhhh. That man makes me incoherent. I was rendered speechless by him and I can't quite convey why that is.

"I want your ass. Happy? Want it with the scars. With the fucked-up, tragic story. With every fiber of my body. I want to fuck you, and own you , and bruise you, and save you. But I can't do any of those things. why? Because you'd hate me afterwards, and that's a fact, not a speculation. Mark my words. For reasons I can't tell you right now, fucking you will break you and ruin me. And I may be a bastard, but I'm not the fucking villain."

See what I mean. Bane is just gah. A few times throughout this book LJ renders me speechless with just his words. And Jesse, well I love her fierceness and while at the beginning she was anything but it seemed that Bane was the catalyst she needed to take back her life. And take it back she did and I loved it. Bane and Jesse, their story is captivating and their story was endearing to witness. I loved seeing these two together even though the circumstances that brought them to one another is less then ideal. And of course it was only a matter of time before things blew up and when they did, let's just say that LJ surprises you with something you didn't see coming which makes this story even more gripping. This series just gets better and better. There's a reason that LJ is a go to author for me, she writes the words and stories that I love to lose myself in.

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE


Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.
