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.
ARC REVIEW – Scandalous by LJ Shen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wish I could give this book more than five stars!
This book is gripping and addictive. Everyone need a HotHole in their life!
This book was written from a dual POV and I loved being able to get into the head of both characters. To see the struggle with Trent over his developing feelings for Edie was epic. As much as he tried to fight it, his downfall was imminent.
“I don’t hate you. Not even close. Not even if I try really fucking hard.”
For Edie, life was full of secrets and lies. She had to grow up too fast and was always the savior of everyone around her. But the thing with secrets is they always come out.
She was such a strong heroine and her snark and a take-no-crap attitude was endearing.
“If you want to be strong, be.”
I loved that we got to catch up with Vicious, Dean, Jaime and their families. And of course, the book wouldn’t be complete without them adding their spin on things.
“We noticed you were in each other’s faces from across the hall, and we all know that hate turns to love more often than not. So here’s my two cents – keep your crotches to yourselves, kids. Right. Fucking. Now. ”
There were a lot of twisty pieces of goodness in this little gem too! LJ had me on the edge many times and in true Shen fashion, made me fall for a damn HotHole, loving him even at his worst.
“I should warn you, Edie. I’m not the prince in this fairytale. I’m the villain. The poisonous apple, the flame-breathing monster”
This book was, as all the others in this series, a sexy, hot read and had me gripping my kindle so tightly at some points I thought it would break. I had so many gasping and OMG moments in this.
Scandalous is one of my top reads this year so far. I’m just sad this marks the end of this phenomenal series.
