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.
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.

Where do I begin with the review, its taken me a few days to mull it all over in my head? I needed to get things straight to not be swayed or influenced by others. To stick to my feelings and not get swept up in the hype. I enjoyed this book don’t get me wrong, but I was expecting so much more. I may have been spoilt in the past by LJ Shen and her ability to sweep me off my feet and blow me away.
Right now to start to explain. I really can’t be fair. I loved Bane, his character and what he was to Jesse. I get that he had the swagger, he was indeed a loveable rogue and although he protected Jesse like a man possessed which I find so beautiful, he just didn’t make me get the feels. And So like Bane I refuse to apologise.
The strongest and most upstanding character in this book is indeed Jesse. She was a warrior and God did she have so much to deal with. She is the kind of character that makes you look at things with different eyes and for me, she made this book. Now them together was perfect in a lot of ways. How he helped her to fix herself by handing her exactly what she needed. As the book went on Jesse opened up and the banter and relationship grew from there.
I do recommend this book, it provoked a ton of different emotions. I laughed and I got teary. So, all in all, it was a great read but for me. I just wanted more.
