SCANDALOUS book review | LJ Shen (@lj_shen)


Scandalous book review | LJ Shen 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 unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.


SCANDALOUS is a bad boy junkie juggernaut.  3 Words: I.Am.Obsessed.  No I am not going to shut up about this series anytime soon because I have 3 more books to binge-read.   And if you haven’t started this series, then what are doing with your precious time? Get caught up now!!!!
I can sum up this 5 KINK review in two words: Trent Rexroth. This review is for my ride and die book fiends. They are the ones who understand once you find a book boyfriend that will consumed your life, make you ignore your family and friends, make you drive across town 40 minutes out of the way for no reason other than to listen to the audiobook; you need to shout to the universe: Your next binge-read is this baby!!

Arrogant. Rude. Older. Gorgeous. A Single Dad. Yep, that piece of arm candy on the cover is a father to a precious 4 year old.
This is Trent Rexroth. A grade A hothole you will love to hate and beg to love. He is kicking himself because of his own emotional vulnerability and need for Edie.
Surfer. Teenager. Sexual Active. Broken. This is Edie Van der Zee. The one man she should stay away from and can’t resist. She should be totally off-limits for Trent but she’s not. The whirlwind heat between these two is slower than a slow burn.  Trust me the tease is abso-freaking-lutely worth your time.
It has it all – laughs, tears, angst and hotter than hot sex scenes. Author LJ Shen wrote a damn good book with a character I loathe, envied and cheered on. It’s so taboo and forbidden I should really be ashamed for loving the sex between Trent and Edie. But I’m not! Obviously jail bate and/or barely legal is not a hard limit for me. I need whisky and a cig as I listen to CHRISTIAN RUMMEL whisper in my ear. That sexy I don’t give a damn voice will seduce and put you in a trance.

In closing Thanksgiving 2017 will be the holiday I discovered the “Hotholes.” And I am being told by LJ Sassy Sparrow’s – just wait until I meet Vicious. And with Rummel narrating, I have no other choice to scoop up the audiobook too. I’m not sure if I loved this story more because of the audiobook or because of the words jumping off my kindle like pop rocks candy with a coke. It sizzles with satisfaction.  It explodes with unbridled “don’t get caught with your hand in the honey pot ” passion. Pun most definitely intended.
