Entranced (The Donovan Legacy, eREVIEW 5 Sad It s Over CROWNS 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 than Iver xpected I obviously xpected some Vicious lements he is his father s son after all based on his behavior in the previous books but I didn t xpect the softer parts the broken parts Based on the title readers know there is something that has affected Vaughn in a monumental way and the way LJ Shen handled it and the fallout with Vaughn s character was xceptionally well done She handles it with care and respect and I love how he loves Lenora the way he shows her in the nd the heart he tears out of his chest and hands to her He is one of the most vulnerable characters Leigh has created Lenora Oh boy She is perfect for Vaughn matched in very way She pushes back she is smart and she is artistically driven They communicated on another level in this book fully opening up to ach other as the novel volved and she was truly a heroine who loves her hero for who he is what he has ndured and where he is now She takes nothing lying done and I was thrilled to see her holding his hand in the Buried end Of course Angry God wouldn t be complete without Vicious and Emilia and did Shenver deliver for their characters The way the love the son can be felt through the pages I felt what they felt I mpathized with them because LJ puts you there She writes their scenes in a way that you have no choice but to feel it very hard angry destructive moment Even through all that you could still find the love of the original SOS couple Like very single book in this series Shen tackles major issues topics themes and she did it with integrity and respect to the content There are triggers in this book for sure but I am believer that literature and romance is should be a reflection of issues that we xperience and plague the world and sadly the issues in Angry God are rampant still today Addressing these issues makes us mpathetic aware humane Vaughn and Lenora s story absolutely does that The pain they suffer the antagonism of a young romance as they stumble through their feelings and the final HEA shows reader so many things that light can bloom in the darkest of places that love can shatter darkness and heal wounds and that real family blood or not will love all your broken pieces and hold you together when you fall apart LJ Shen started this journey with Vicious and it nds with his son Vaughn the 8th and final book as of now in the Todos Santos world This series has brought us full circle These characters and this world has taught me so much I ve grown laughed loved with this fictional people and that is the power of a phenomenal romance Beta read 5 STARS 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 xpect anything less from any kid of ViciousThis 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

OMGGGG LJ Shen just dropped her first The Power Of A Choice 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 ispic and solidified itself as Leigh Shen s BEST READ EVERAfter reading the first two books in the All Saints High series you might think you know who Vaughn Spencer is but you honestly have NO idea I have never loved an LJ character the way I love Vaughn He has the attitude and personality of his father but the artistic soul of his mother Leigh Shen really broke the mold with his character ncapsulating who he is what happened to him and how he was affected by the one person in his life that burrowed deep within him and never leftLikewise Lenora is pure magic I love verything about her She is raw and wounded and his perfect match Their banter was FIRE and their chemistry just as combustible Overall you will DIE for this story As usual Shen s writing is innovative and provocative Her books are always original and always full of the typical snark and smart dialogue that she is known for This story is the first of many bombs this author will drop in 2020 and I seriously can t wait for this pic ride 5 stars Ratula i d like to formally apologize to lj shenmy official stance was that i wasn t going to bother with this book after some lukewarm and honestly fucking terrible books that lj s released recently looking at you ITUE i think the stale beta readers coupled with the too freuent releases was turning me off from her books ntirely but when i saw it was available for free thru audible The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right escapes i figured i could passively listenand lo and behold this was actually a solid release i think my judgment of this book is due in part to the fact that i went in with such lowxpectations but upon further reflection i actually think this book is pretty good not great not spectacular definitely not ORIGINAL but very solidwhat i Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling enjoyedi think what worked for ME here is the whole damaged hero thing i am a sucker for a guy with a past and usually that canxcuse behavior and it did here to be frank i think the complaints about vaughn being a bullypussy are a little unfounded i mean we all kind of knew this was going to be a bully romance as almost all of LJ s books are but i don t think Vaughn was particularly horrible by comparison in fact the things he does to make up for his treatment of Lenora actually were kinda sweet not condoning bullying or whatever but also let s not act like we didn t know what we were in foralso i m not a psychologist but the behavior that Vaughn Monsieur Pain exhibits as a result of his trauma kinda makes sense given the kind of guy he is again not condoning it but it wasnough to justify the things that occur in the storyanother BIG thing for me is that the plot here made sense it felt like LJ actually used an outline and knew where she was going with
things that is out and out the biggest complaint i had with the first two books inthat is out and out the biggest complaint i had with the first two books in series ridiculous plot twists superfluous side characters needless drama and MEANDERING plot this book seems fairly coherent like there was a plan and that kind of moistened the ole drawers after the shit i went thru with her last 4 releasesand lastly i uh figured out i m sort of here for the blood play the sexsexual scenes in this were fucking hot i was here for itwhat needed workthis was not an original story it read similarly to Vicious that s a valid criticism and overall i think LJ could stand to do a little romantic development between her characters she s still falling into the trap of having love admissions at 80% and then separating the characters just to get them back together in a big ole PDA way but it would be a nice change of pace to watch a story unfold in a linear fashion ven if it s nemies to lovers a friends step would be nice to see why people actually work well together which is one of the pitfalls of nemies to lovers you spend all this time hating ach other you don t have time figure out why you d work as a couple you re too busy boningin summationi m a stupid bitch but i njoyed this nevertheless 4 stars This book THIS BOOK I don t think I could have prepared myself for this rollercoaster ride of motions Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. 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 themotion and incredible writing that I ve come to xpect 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 damaged hero It s been months since I read Angry God and I still think about these characters and that is the mark of a memorable beautifully written story ENGLISHSPANISH VERSION 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 very 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 UNIUE My Vaughn is I have no words his personality fascinates me a character so complex as I have never read another hero before his mind is a vast universe full of thoughts that torture him and he has such a pure heart under his cold outside Lenny is his perfect complement sassy and brave
Determined And Loyal Sheand loyal she my author s FAVORITE HEROINE to dateAlthough at the beginning they can t stand ach other LJ does a masterful job narrating the volution of their relationship and the characters I love.

D the way in which the author gradually reveals layers and layers in th 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 SpencerWe 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 make me ready for what I just Il morto di Maigret experienced I ventured into the depths unknowing how irrecoverably this book would change meThe intensity is cranked to maximum from page one and I was lost in the abyss by the third chapter The ferocity rattled the walls along with my ribs There are no words powerfulnough to describe how this story makes me feel I laughed and criedcursed the characters only to praise them moments later Emotional whiplash has never felt so damn good It s lectric and nonstop leaving me on the dge on a tightrope without scape Nothing I can say will be adeuate nough to Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System, Third Edition explain the beautiful destruction this book delivers The complexity is thousands of layers deep Secrets revenge passionnemies twists and redemption are tossed around in a kaleidoscope of Billionaires Contract Engagement (Kings of the Boardroom epic proportions Lovers of angst will be drooling Fans ofnemies to lovers will fall to their knees Anyone seeking a revenge plot will find it overflowing here But simply considering this a romance is vast understatement This book ticks off boxes for readers of all genres Suspense drama mystery psychologicalit s all here for the takingWe raise the standards of great romance and LJ Shen will continue to obliterate them She proves once again why she s always on top of the charts Angry God is sure to leave a lasting as in forever indent on your heart If you re looking for a book to wreck you with the pure beauty of words this one will blast apart Sexual Secrets everyxpectation you dare to thrown down Hold on for an indescribable ride that will leave you breathless and satisfied to your soul Edit apparently this review got me kicked out of one of LJ s facebook groups Oukayyy I m glad I left her main reader group myself Done with this bullshit the fact that these authors cannot take criticism in any form25 STARSTo 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 arly works and she has written few of my favorite books ver 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 yearWe all are different as readers some things work for others some don t Old school LJ worked for me perfectly Current LJ A big freaking no After Broken Knight I was disappointed but I still hoped that it was a fluke a one time thing Then she published In The Unlikely Event and I started to realise that maybe it wasn t a fluke after all That maybe this is the way she s starting
To Plot Her Stories Andplot her stories And God only cemented thatThis book is predictable In very single sense it s predictable It s nothing otherworldly nothing that we haven t seen before Which is sad as we ve all been waiting for Vaughn since LJ announced that she d be writing this spin off series But from my humble point of view this book was just disappointing really The first half was uite a bit messy and I was confused big portion of this book There is ton of drama so many messed up things happening a few that made me want to rate this book 1 star I am still very much pissed and the romance between Lenora and Vaughn is what you would xpect from LJ hate hate hate conflict confession love The same thing all over again The nding was wrapped up too uickly and felt VERY rushed I want to be surprised in a good way sometimes but so far LJ has only managed to make me want to hurl my phone at the wall and make a combination of a cringe and a facepalmI guess I m just not njoying her books
They really do nothing me any Her drama has been beyond Purely Sexual excessive in her latest releases and her books all follow the same pattern And it s getting old really fastI just hoped for something I guess when you read this book you may understand my meaning maybe not But something just felt missing from this book and Vaughn s story Something about him felt amiss And the romance was dissatisfying to me The connection between him and Lenora was there but it was hard to feel because of the intense hate they had forach other unwarranted may I add But if you re into that sort of thing I think you re gonna love this bookSo yeah I really don t know what to say I m pretty disappointed This lacks that sort of magic Shen s old books have This didn t really amaze me Didn t wow me I did like this better than In The Unlikely Event and I did The West Transformed: A History of Western Civilization, Vol 1, to 1715 enjoy it at some parts but it was just very bland and so so predictable and very over the top AND all my theories proved correct and there was no fun in thatI think this is my last book I m gonna read from LJ For a very long while at least I m not looking forward to her new releases if this is the route she s gonna take with her books from now on Just not my thing and it s not something I as a readernjoy PS LJ Shen really really has to start using trigger warnings in her books TW blood mention of self harm sexual assault on a child I received an ARC in xchange for an honest review I breathe for Vaughn Spencer This story and these characters have remained in my heart and mind months after reading The story is breathtakingI d been waiting for his story AVAILABLE NOW FULL. T time he almost killed me Between hooking up with a different girl very weekend breaking hearts noses and rules Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me I fight back tooth and nail never xpecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school But here he is living with me in a dark looming castle on the outskirts of London ,Any They Really Do Nothing
