Bane by L.J. Shen
Series: Sinners of Saint, book 5
Genre: contemporary, romantic suspense

Rating: ★★★★★

Bane’s name defines his entire existence. He was born to cheat, raid and break hearts. And he found his next perfect target.

Jesse has given up boys for life. She wants not one thing to do with their frivolities. Well good for her because Bane is no boy. He’s all man and ready to wreck havoc on her entire life.

Honestly, I should have expected this book to hit me harder than a mofo but I didn’t so all the emotional turmoil is on me. Serves me right for being that idiot.

I keep saying this on and on and it never seizes to be untrue – L.J. Shen knows how to write the fuck out of a story, she bloody knows how to make you fall in love with every character she creates and she knows just how to coerce you into abandoning your life and just read. Frankly at this point she can ask for my soul and I’d be like ‘did you need it yesterday, too?’

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD BANE!!!! This man gave me all sorts of heart aches. At one point, I had to put the book down and walk away cuz let me tell you I WAS NOT EQUIPPED!!! I just want to read this book forever and ever. *ugly crying*

5 Stars!

A COMPLETE standalone and a Sinners of Saint spin-off.

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 teeth for it.
